A Little Bit About Me
I practice Islam actively, observing the Five Daily Prayer, e.g. zakat, fasting (including Day of Arafat, Ashurah,etc.). I try to read at least a hizb or page of the Holy Qur'an everyday, keeping my diet essentially Halal (Zabiha), with Kosher or Vegetarian as alternatives. I usually have limited time for Islamic classes. Instead I listen to lectures, videos, and programs(Deen Show, Quran Weekly,etc.) as well as read books or articles online from popular Muslim speakers such as Imam Siraj Wahaj, Nouman Ali Khan, Mufti Menk, Yasir Qadhi, Omar Suliman, Sheikh Yusuf Estes, Yaser Birjas, and many more! Among my immediate family, Muslim friends, and work colleagues, I am described as humble, tolerant, disciplined, understanding, balanced, resourceful, and NEVER using profanity, however, I can be straight forward on rare occasions especially during a serious matters. I can be funny at times, but there is truth with my humor. As for anger, I rarely ever get upset about things because I realize events of this life (good and bad) are part of the Allah's test. My dress style is modest (yes, brothers we have observe modesty too not just the sisters), in either Islamic or business attire. I also observe "social modesty", thus limiting my contact with members of the opposite genders at work, school, etc even within social media e.g. Facebook, Instagram, etc. Being an introvert in character and Muslim, I NEITHER go to clubs, night parties, gamble, smoke (cigar, cigarettes, Hookah, etc.), drink, Instead my recreation includes, reading, traveling, walking, music, learning new things.
What I Am Looking For
Although I am NOT expecting my match to be carbon copy of me, she would possess similar qualities and values I mentioned in my profile so there would be more harmony within the marriage/family. No! That does not mean marrying the same culture/race, it means she also practices the 5 pillars. She is either educated, informed, or have a great interested in both learning and growing intellectually. She is not distracted by contemporary fads or popular trends(referring cultural behaviors which go against Islamic teachings, fashions, clubs, drinking, smoking, gambling, etc), a sister who sees herself as an individual than a follower and more importantly a Muslimah who follows the Quran/Sunnah as her guide. Who can learn about other cultures, people, languages, etc., with an open mind without being culture-centered or arrogant. She understands we all make mistakes at some point in our lives and overlooks imperfections, covering minor faults, and aiding her husband through hardships of life as he should for her. She regularly wears hijab/niqab as I always wear my kufi, limiting her contact with opposite gender at school, work, and online. who is mature minded, having self-esteem, family oriented, and has the correct intention of in being a good wife and mother for our children according to Quran/Sunnah.
