– “Can we get a MashaAllah”–
"Because if you don’t have your trust in Allah, how are you going to have trust in yourself to find the other half of your deen. Always put your trust in Allah SWT’s hands. Having Tawakkul in Allah’s hands is the only reliance you will need in this dunya, because He is all knowing and the only one we should rely on."
"Rather than looking for looks or any unrealistic characteristics in your spouse, one could look for a man or woman with good character and piety. A man that is religious will carry good character, and a woman that practices her Deen actively will portray good character as well. With Deen, comes Ikhlaq (manners)."
"Don’t chase after anyone in this Dunya. That is unfortunately unrealistic, there are plenty of fish in the sea. The perfect man is not based on his salary, and not based on how many followers he has on social media. It's based on the amount of respect that he’s giving you as his spouse, and how much he practices his Deen. For men, the perfect girl is not one that chases this Dunya and its materialistic ideas, it is a woman that will respect you as her partner."
"In our modern society it is very possible for two individuals to meet and want to make things halal through their families and get serious as soon as possible. Although, with some families there are some unfortunate events where the families do not agree and the two individuals that wanted things done the correct way (the halal way) are in terms of wanting to get married. This is a cause of conflict of culture rather than conflict of religion. Some families tend to forget that culture is not religion, and religion is not culture. Nevertheless, it is still important to try your very best to get both families to be in full agreement."
"Completing the other half of your Deen is not something that is going to happen as quickly as you think it is. Patience is one of life’s biggest virtues, as the more patient you are with finding the correct spouse and not the “perfect” spouse, put your Tawakkul in Allah’s hands. And no one will take care of you more than Allah SWT will, be patient. The good is coming your way."
"Meeting a person that has no red flags is very rare to come across, as no one in this world is a perfect human being. When looking for a spouse, make sure to be aware of any major red flags; a man or a woman who does not pray, a possible spouse that treats his family or parents in the wrong manner. These are red flags that if ignored will carry on into the marriage. It is a very well known saying, that if you want to see how a man will treat you, look at how he treats his mother, and look at how he possibly treats his sister. No situation is perfect, nobody is perfect, seek the good but don’t ignore the flags."
