As-salamu alaykum, I am the son of a retired Manufacturing Engineer from Trinidad & Tobago. I am striving to be an Investor and a local Imaam. I reverted to Islam on July 30th, 2013 and since then I attend various Islamic courses every week, practice reading Arabic Quran daily, and aiming for Imaam classes . I am a caring, sensitive, strong and athletic! I guess you can say I am a nerd and a jock.
My long term goals
Own my father's business or start my own company. Earn financial freedom so that I can live according to the Quran, no credit and things of that nature. I want to complete Umrah and Hajj as well as travel often to see other worlds land marks. Start a family and eventually raise a child or children and really be there every step of the way...
Things I'm good at and enjoy
I am good with my hands, soccer, track & field, gardening, cooking, cleaning, listening, and taking time off for recreation. I enjoy watching sports, reading, learning, and developing myself in all area of my life. I will like to start enjoying my time with the woman I get married to and become good at maintaining our marriage after learning about half my Dīn and why it is!
The first thing people notice about me
This is a hard question for me to answer because it depends a lot on where and in what context you meet me. At work you will notice how sharp I am. At the Masjid you will notice how pious I am. In the street you will notice how radically cool I am. And if it is the first time meeting me at sporting scene you will notice how competitive I am.
My family background and values
I grew up in a very cultured single parent home with my dad. He instilled in me worldly and spiritual values that I often receive compliments for up to this day. My mother and I became very close recently with in the last year thanks to Islam and I understand clearly now why Jannah lies under her feet. "Walk all over me girl"
What I love most about Islam
I love Islam because it is bringing out all my positives and is depleting all my negatives slowly in my life. I was always very spiritual before reverting but it has taken me to a whole new level of spirituality. Islamic knowledge has even crossed over into my everyday life and is educating and empowering me in every possible way.
Things I'm looking for in a partner
What is important to me is the quality of my partner. If you want a traditional Islamic marriage and stay at home, fine with me. If you want a modern Islamic marriage and work and drive that is fine with me. If you want a little of both traditional and modern Islamic marriage that is also fine with me. Race, looks, heritage and money means little to me. A family pedigree of cultured, wordly, & spiritual up bringing is.
You should message me if
You should message me if you want to get married because of your love and wantingness to pleasing Allah with completing half of your Dīn with the type of man described above.
