A quirky, upbeat and kind individual with an interest in books, Deen, tea, holidays and foodie crawls!
Deen is central to my life and salat is my anchor. I aspire to improve my character and develop my Islamic knowledge, in regards to Arabic (currently starting level 2); Tafseer and Tajweed. I enjoy attending Islamic lectures and courses in order to develop my understanding and enrich my Imaan. Islam to me is ultimately about loving for others what you love for yourself; withholding judgement and giving the benefit of the doubt. Everyone is a sinner and the best of those are the ones who repent! I also feel that it is a persons sincerity + effort that counts the most. Whilst i believe one should prioritise Deen over culture and leave aside that which is incompatible, i know that culture is an intrinsic part of ones identity and thus i have a balanced attitude as opposed to swinging towards either end of the pendulum. Allah chose us as a middle nation; therefore its important to follow the middle path and not resort to extremes.
Besides the above; i am easy-going, positive, up for a laugh and spontaneous by nature. I love animals and studied English Literature. I like horror films, exploring museums, theatre and dabbled in a bit of Muay Thai - something i would love to continue in the near future. I have travelled too and some of my favourite destinations include Paris, Granada and Bangladesh . More so aside from English i can speak Bengali, Hindi as well as understand Urdu and "Jhom" words of Korean :P. I can cook and bake - but the ability to nourish oneself and others is a basic skill i believe anyone should possess irrespective of their gender :)
Favourite Books: George Orwell, 'Down and Out in London and Paris', Tariq Ramadan, 'In the footsteps of the Prophet', and of course Jane Austen, 'Pride and Prejudice' :P
I come from a small and close knit family. We are very laid back and not particularly traditional in that we are open with each other and not the type to obey society over Deen.
My parents are not together and i should point that out for anyone who considers it a moral outrage :O !?!
In sha Allah i am looking to get married in order to complete half of my Deen; i see marriage as a source for spiritual motivation, companionship and ultimately a means for growing together in the same direction. I understand it's a serious commitment and would put in the effort and time in order to make it successful. As someone wise once said Marriage is 'a Home of tolerance not a dictatorship'- therefore it should be founded on mutual respect, patience, Rahma and understanding. Everyone has shortcomings but we should aim to 'cover' the faults of our spouses and help them as individuals to become better in their Deen and character. As well as support one another to achieve individual/mutual goals and strive together as a unified pair despite life's trials.
In sha Allah he should be a practising BRITISH BORN UK Citizen- (a similar upbringing is fundamental for purposes of compatibility )- below the age of 34. He should fulfil his Fard obligations at the very least and strive to beautify his character (often overlooked!). More so i am NOT willing to relocate outside of LONDON. Even zone 6 is a stretch :P
In terms of general qualities; i am looking to meet someone who is God conscious (fulfils the 5 DAILY SALAT+has good character), has a happy disposition, makes an effort, communicates with honesty and is intelligent and affectionate. He should also make a halal income and guard his chastity. He should also be aware of his marital responsibilities just as i am of my own. Someone who enjoys exercising their mind via reading, reflection as well as through seeking knowledge. I would like to meet a mature individual who would protect as well as defend me and be a source of stability- i hope to be the same. Sense of humour is key :D. A travel buddy would be a bonus!
Someone with an interest in learning Arabic in order to grasp the Quran would be great too. It is important that he has a fun and lively personality as i wouldn't wish to endure life with someone dull :/.
PLEASE note that i am NOT looking to date and will have a chaperone present should it get to that stage. Also i am not in want of a pen pal; would rather speak over the phone or meet up over an Earl Grey #Cuppa.
I bid you Farewell and All the best with your search! Have Husnul Dzan no matter what ups and downs you may face :). Let's all bear in mind that Allah makes openings for those who have Taqwa from sources you could not even realise. Therefore I make Dua we can all purify our intentions, communicate in a dignified manner as well as be respectful of each others time.
Message me if you feel that we would be compatible in light of the above as i dont feel comfortable sending out messages first. Jzk!
P.S i am open to those from a different ethnic background to my own, as well as divorcees as it is not within our religion to discriminate. Unfortunately cultural ways of thinking that are not within our Sunnah have negatively affected our communities and made marriage difficult for some. Should Mr Right exist i would like him to know that I want a pet cat in the near future; a middleground can be reached if he is riddled with pet allergies :D
I'm registering to find myself a partner
