I have been living at Beau Bassin for over 50 years. I attended Royal College, Pot Louis and then studied Agriculture at the now University of Mauritius. After retiring in 1996 from the Ministry of Agriculture I performed hajj with my wife who passed away in 2000. I was employed for 3 years as Human Resources Manager in a private company. I have 3 children who are married and live on their own. I have been doing social work for very long and now I am Vice President of the committee of our masjid. I am very much science oriented in my life and enjoy gardening and outdoor life. I have travelled to many countries.
My long term goals
To perform Nikah with a lady, a good practising Muslimah.
Things I'm good at and enjoy
Bricolage or do it yourself as I followed a 2-year part time course in Woodworking when I left college. I enjoy photography, gardening, walking to keep me fit. I have followed a part time course on Islamic Sciences during one year and I enjoy increasing my knowledge of Islam.
The first thing people notice about me
My youthful look and healthiness. My readiness to help people in difficulties. I collect Zakaat during Ramadan for Islamic Welfare Foundation since its foundation since 1970.
My family background and values
My father came from UP in India when he was only 3 and grew up and educated in Mauritius. His first 3 sons attended Royal College, Curepipe. The eldest finished his carreer as Minister of Agriculture, the second one was the first Muslim Barrister and became the first Mauitian Governor General. One brother was an Atorney at law, Avoué. My mother's father came from Singapore emigrating from Yemen. My eldest brother bought a plot of land in our village and constructed a masjid. Most of my brothers and sisters have performed Hajj as my mother, some 60 years ago.
What I love most about Islam
Islam is a way of life and not only prayers and rituals. Practising Islam according to the Quraan and Sunnah of our beloved Prophet pbuh is my priority. Islam is universal and I have witnessed this during Hajj and during my visits to foreign countries, from Pakistan to Canada, from Comoros to Malaysia......
Things I'm looking for in a partner
A well balanced pious Muslimah practising deen. A caring companion till death separate us.
You should message me if
You find in me a suitable soul mate and ready to perform Nikah.
