Single mom to two amazing girls. I work with pregnant mothers and support them through their births and post partum. Not your typical Malaysian. Moved quite a lot and lived in different countries when I was younger. Rediscovered my faith and started practicing the Deen seriously in my early twenties. I'm a work in progress. So proud and grateful for how far I've come alhamdulillah ...yet still so much more to learn. Currently exploring ways to provide my children a stable, Islamic environment to grow up in biiznillah.
My long term goals
Jannah. Be a better muslim. I have quite traditional views on living a Muslim lifestyle, but at the same time I'm open to learning new things - like how to live a more holistic (fitrah-centric) lifestyle. I would love to be able to homeschool or worldschool my children at some point (travel and grow and learn from our travels). I'm intrigued by off-the-grid/simplistic living, permaculture, minimalism, reducing our environmental footprint and just going back to what is pure and closer to fitrah.
Things I'm good at and enjoy
Travelling, social work, volunteering. Educating families about gentle birth, breastfeeding, gentle parenting ...
The first thing people notice about me
i have no idea. plain jane I guess
My family background and values
We're originally from Singapore. moderately religious I'd say. My sister and father are quite westernized. Having lived in Europe when I was young helped me to have the best of both worlds, if you can call it that.
What I love most about Islam
Its simplicity and universality.
Things I'm looking for in a partner
Someone I can connect with intellectually. So don't be offended if I start asking those deep questions right of the bat. I dont want to waste either of our times. He kinda needs to be easy-going and positive too, to offset my sometimes intense character. He so needs to be serious about Islam (foundations need to be there), or at least be serious about growing in it. Note: My kids and I are a package. We're have our quirks but we love passionately and loyally. So he would have to be able and willing to practice true Qawwam towards my kids and I and accept us wholly.
You should message me if
You're currently single and serious about marriage for the sake of Allah. You are open to the idea of loving 2 children as your own. You are serious about learning about the Deen. In theory i would be OK with someone younger than me, but he needs to be mature and want the same things as me. At this point in life I'm looking for someone to grow old with and more in love with Allah with. I've learned to be discerning about whom I allow into my & my children's lives, so please don't take it personally if I don't respond. Also I won't respond if you don't provide any information/photo on your profile for me to go by. Thanks! and all the best :)
