so after long patience, and plenty of dua and waiting, I have signed out from the single men's club,
As I have imagined in my younger days of practicing how my wife would be, my wife embraced Islam at an age of 17 and is americano. She embraced it right about the same time when I started practicing, ramadan 2002, subhan Allah wa mashaAllah she left everything for Islam and faced difficultied sticking to her deen.
Things were tough and not going well - without going into details- she saw the prophet sallah Allahu 3alayhi wa sallam, and he reminded her of Allah and that the way of this deen is tough and he talked to her about difficulties he salla Allah 3alayhi wa sallam faced in spreading the message. Oh and he told her she cant take off her niqab but infront of her husband :D and in the dream it was clear that we were getting married.
I thought I was naive when I was 17 when I got my first dollar, that I got as change from some money i had exchanged. I remember keeping it later on and saying this will be the maher (dowary) I give to my future wife, and thats all she would take. I always had kept it since then, since 2002 just for that special some one whom if she would have what am looking for would be very happy to take. I asked her how much mahr you want, and she was like "I dunno I dont care about that" I later told her bout my dollar haha, she was touched and she said she wanted it and nothing else, and now alhamdullelah she keeps it.
I told the sheikh who spoke in our cermony about her dream, he was trying hard to keep his tears and he joked about her being a companion of the prophet salla Allahu 3alayhi wa asalam, he gave me advice, on being nice to her, and that if I make her happy, Allah will make me happy.
إِنَّ الْمُسْلِمِينَ وَالْمُسْلِمَاتِ وَالْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَالْمُؤْمِنَاتِ وَالْقَانِتِينَ وَالْقَانِتَاتِ وَالصَّادِقِينَ وَالصَّادِقَاتِ وَالصَّابِرِينَ وَالصَّابِرَاتِ وَالْخَاشِعِينَ وَالْخَاشِعَاتِ وَالْمُتَصَدِّقِينَ وَالْمُتَصَدِّقَاتِ وَالصَّائِمِينَ وَالصَّائِمَاتِ وَالْحَافِظِينَ فُرُوجَهُمْ وَالْحَافِظَاتِ وَالذَّاكِرِينَ اللَّهَ كَثِيرًا وَالذَّاكِرَاتِ أَعَدَّ اللَّهُ لَهُمْ مَغْفِرَةً وَأَجْرًا عَظِيمًا
For Muslim men and women,- for believing men and women, for devout men and women, for true men and women, for men and women who are patient and constant, for men and women who humble themselves, for men and women who give in Charity, for men and women who fast (and deny themselves), for men and women who guard their chastity, and for men and women who engage much in Allah's praise,- for them has Allah prepared forgiveness and great reward[33;35]
may Allah make us of those men and women
