A Little Bit About Me
Mature, well mannered Male. Serious when necessary but generally light hearted. I enjoy travelling and am spontaneous although I'm weak hearted at times (heights) ! It's quite difficult to describe yourself without seeming to egotistical. I am very family friendly and sociable.
Currently working for a well known automotive engineering company. It's a job I quite enjoy and get on well with others.
Religion wise I'm more in to the classical texts and authors (Ibn Taymiyyah, Ibn Qayyum) rather then the contemporary scholars. Religion is easy but unfortunately cultural practices have made it difficult for some, it's better to be sincere in what you do then to do things abundantly without following the right criteria. Quality over quantity. Regularly pray salah and try not to miss any without reason.
I'm very optimistic, every challenge or experience is a lesson. It shapes and improves you.
What I Am Looking For
The ideal match would be an independent woman, by that I mean someone who can think for herself and decide what is beneficial to her. Good understanding and wise. Someone who has good, traditional family values. Seeking someone with similiar interests religiously or who is genuinely interested in learning and striving to improve both of us. Prefer 25+ and ideally similar in lifestyle and culture.
I would like to spend some time (months not years) getting to know a potential partner as previously I rushed into marriage and after a few years the differences caused us to drift apart as we both had different aspirations.
Prefer someone within England as it will keep them close to their family and it will give them the flexibility of being able to visit easily. Ties of kinship are extremely important.
Self respect and modesty (hayya) is one of the highest mark of faith (imaan).
Please no-one unsure on what they want or testing the 'water'
