I am a revert, who is keen on developing my Iman, and to learn the islamic teachings. I am born in a christian family, but along the line in life I got curious about Islam and started listening to lectures online in English, Islam made a lot of sense to me. Therefore, I decided to revert. I am therefore struggling to learn the teachings of Islam as well as the practices. I havent stepped in a masjid yet, I would like to find someone who will help me by taking me there to introduce me to the imam. I only see imams and sheikhs and masjids on you tube.I still do not even know how to tie hijab, I would love to meet a man who will help me along the Islam journey especially the practices, If you can teach me arabic or learn with me arabic , it will be a plus.
My long term goals
Sheikh Ibrahim Yahya on you tube in one of his lectures advices against making long-term goals and getting fixed on them. This has made me to rethink so many of the long-term plans that I had made in the dunya.I am flexible about future plans because at the end of the day it is Allah who knows best what is best for me and why and when he will grant it to me inshallah.
Things I'm good at and enjoy
I am good at cooking, home decoration and creating a peaceful environment in a house.
The first thing people notice about me
My happy disposition,smile on my face and a calm poise.
My family background and values
I was born in a christian family, both my parents were teachers. Being the first born, they had high expectations of me in terms of reputation and behavior, therefore brought me up with a lot of strict rules and discpline and high traditional values that explains most of my personality and attributes today.
What I love most about Islam
Prayer is straight to Allah and not through prophets, and prophets are honoured and respected for having revealed the beautiful Quran to us and are rembered in all the 5 daily prayers. Secondly Islam gives direct guidelines of how to lead your life. These were the main reasons that made me to revert.
Things I'm looking for in a partner
I would appreciate a pious educated man who practices Islam, and a non smoker, It would be nice if he was a patient person, non-judgemental personality who is interested in developing his Iman.
You should message me if
