I am a convert, hamdulillah, I’ve been Muslim for a while now. My main focus in life is learning my deen, but that doesn’t mean I don’t work, or don’t take time to make others happy.
I work in order to provide for my family, if I wanted to be rich I could have focused on that (and Allah knows best) but I want to work enough to fulfil responsibility and then spend the rest of time studying and learning, memorising Quran etc.
I would like to find someone who I can talk with, someone I can support and also find support in. Someone who thinks similarly, ie regarding the purpose of this life, and who will be a good companion. When I slip she will help, and when she slips I will help. Someone I can trust when I am away, and is a coolness to my eyes when I am with her. Someone who values Islamic education, (and also secular for the kids especially).
I grew up non Muslim, so hopefully someone who understands the effect that has on a man and what he looks for.
I’m not perfect, I don’t expect you to be. I just hope to find someone who can help me in my goals, and I can help her in hers.
Age, kids, divorces, etc not as important as whether we match.
