Born and raised in London, UK, I am practising Shia Ithna Asheri Muslim. I perform all wajibaats and try my best to go beyond the obligatory acts of worship. Islam is the biggest part of my life. My faith governs all aspects of my life, I try to be as God conscious as possible. Of course, I am not perfect and I have flaws- but I strive to improve myself and reflect on my actions and words on a daily basis.
I am really laid back and easy going person. I absolutely love to have a joke and laugh and generally have a good time. I enjoy making people laugh, having deep/intellectual/good quality conversations, going to the cinemas, reading books. I also play sports (football and squash) and making an occasion appearance at the gym!
I love spending time with friends and family, easily pleased, not fussy in any way, happy go lucky and just embrace each day for what it brings. I am generally very flexible and am able to compromise and I am not stubborn in that sense. I cannot compromise on any aspect of my faith, however. My faith is what keeps me going and is the most dear to me.
I am not a petty person, dislike conflict and arguing about petty everyday things. I am open minded, willing to try out new things, embrace new ways of living, thinking and doing things (i.e. open and willing to embrace the differences my partner would bring in a marriage). As long as this does not entail any sort of disobedience to God or unbearable difficulty for me.
The roles of a husband and wife are interchangeable, to an extent. I don't have any preconceived ideas of my partners 'role'. We should be a team and work together. Basically what I'm saying is I'll do the dishes occasionally! Lol. But in all seriousness, team work is important. Without sounding cliched, we should look at the marriages of the Holy Prophet to Lady Khadija and Imam Ali to Lady Fatima (peace be on them all) and take inspiration from the best of the best.
I reverted to Islam 3 years ago. Greatest decision of my life. More than happy to discuss this difficult yet amazing and on-going journey over private email or face to face meeting.
My previous marriage only lasted 6 months and hence was annulled. If you like my profile, then please do get in touch and I hope this is not a turn off- more than happy to explain the circumstances behind the annulment in private conversation.
A practising Shia Ithna Asheri Muslim (Twelver)
The religious expectations I have from my partner would be that of similar to myself. Islam should play a central focus in her life such as performing the wajib acts and taking an interest in becoming a better muslim and learning, rather than inherting their religion, as Imam Ali (as) would say. Furthermore, a passion to striving to become closer to God and taking an interest in a spiritual journey towards God. I am not looking for the perfect person- just someone who wants to strive to become a better Muslim.
I believe, if two people come together with that common purpose, it leads to a happy and prosperous marriage, filled with lots of barakah.
Aside from the religious aspect, I simply want someone who I can get along with, have a joke and laugh with, share and spend quality time with and really bond emotionally and spiritually. Someone who can be a best friend!
