A Little Bit About Me
I am 49 years of age, divorced of a five year marriage,1 daughter who is 30, and 1 grandchild who is 12. I was a christian for 10 plus years but after my divorce i no longer accepted that I was a christian. In the last 2 years i was without any spiritual guidance due to lack of trust in christianity. In my time of seperation / divorce i was praying and searching for direction in my spiritual walk and Allah (PBUH) answered my prayers. At my job i worked with two muslim brothers who always treated me like family so I asked how i can learn about the religion of Islam. They referred me to some islamic websites that were very informative and helpful in my decision to take my shahada. Ive always new about the religion and have family and friends that are muslims, i just didn't know the depth of it.
In my adult time of living, to be able to have a very special bond of marriage to a women of faith who truly understands what Allah (PBUH) wants from her and me as well is a prayer that i have been waiting for. I am in "NO" rush to get married right now but i still desire to have a muslim wife who "truly" loves me like i will truly love her in the teachings of Allah(PBUH). To be honest, I dont know everything in life but i am teachable and willing to always "try" for the better to live the right way as a humbling muslim man and Allah (PBUH) as my father directing my every step.
