Anytime you’re gonna grow, you’re gonna lose something. You’re losing what you’re hanging onto to keep safe. You’re losing habits that you’re comfortable with, you’re losing familiarity.

Anonymous: Assalamu Alaikum! I need some advice. I dated a guy for a year and wallahi the entire time I felt so guilty. We never did anything Alhamdulillah but I just knew it was wrong. So I said I'm trying to focus on Allah and he said he'll wait. Then a guy I grew up with just confessed his love to me and asked to marry me, idk what to do. My parents would accept the second guy but not the first because of his tribe. Even though I love the first one he wants to wait 4 years to get married and I don't.

islamicrays:

Walaikum Assalaam Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuhu,

The first thing we should look for when marrying is how committed the person is to Islam. Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi was sallam) said, “A woman is normally sought as a wife for her wealth, beauty, nobility, or religiousness (adherence to Islam), but choose a religious woman and you will prosper. ” (Muslim) And he said, “A woman is married for four things, i.e., her wealth, her family status, her beauty and her religion. You should marry the religious woman (otherwise) you will be a loser. “(Bukhari) And he said, “The whole world is a provision, and the best object of benefit of the world is the pious woman. ” (Muslim)

The same holds true when looking for a husband, as the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu alayhi was sallam) said, “When someone with whose religion and character you are satisfied asks to marry your daughter, comply with his request. If you do not do so, there will be corruption and great evil on earth. ” (Tirmidhi)

“A man asked Hasan bin ‘Ali (radi Allah) “I have a daughter and people have proposed to her, so to whom should i marry her?”

He said, “Marry her to one who fears Allah, for if he loves her, he will honor her; and if he hates her, he will not wrong her.“”

[Gems and Jewels | Page 171]

As we look for spouse we make unrealistic expectations but the truth is that no one is perfect and we are made to complete each other. The important factor that we should consider that a person should be God fearing because if he/she is God fearing he/she will fulfill your rights completely because they know that he/she will be answerable on the Day of Judgment.

Love and understanding will build with time in shaa Allah. Marry someone that will bring you closer to Allah Subhanahu wa ta’ala, help you to enter Jannah and help you to elevate your faith in shaa Allah. I suggest you to do istekhara and let your parents decide. Make lots of dua and while asking Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala always say “if it’s good for me” because we don’t know what’s good for us only Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala knows. Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala loves us more than our mother so His decisions are always for our own good and we have to trust Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala.

“But perhaps you hate a thing and it is good for you; and perhaps you love a thing and it is bad for you. And Allah Knows, while you know not.” (Quran 2:216)

Always remember this:

 “No amount of guilt can change the past and no amount of worrying can change the future. Go easy on yourself for the outcome of all affairs is determined by the decree of Allah. If something is meant to go elsewhere, it will never come on your way, but if it is yours by destiny, from you it cannot flee.”

Umar ibn al Khattab (Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anhu)

I hope it will be helpful. May Allah guide us to the straight path.

Ameen

This Egyptian pilgrim was seen at Hajj.
Someone told him “May Allah reward you for your kindness to your father”.
He replied “This is not my father. I don’t even know who this man is. I wish I had my father to do this for him.”
