I agree i would never compramoise my faith for a man, i woudl rather stay single. but instead of remaining single i would move away, to a new community. there are pleanty of fish in the sea. there are lots fo practcing men, and unfortunatly sometimes live far away, but isnt it worth all the hassel, and marriage is a test, half our deen comes with alot of tests of its own.
I have that probelm in my own community of arabs. alot of single attractive men, who are ok to look at. but thats about it. lol
I am not compatible with any of them. my mother thinsk its fairly strange, she said to me as long as they fast, pray and pay zakat what is the problem. and i told her fo rme that is the bare minimum which means the brother will need to do alot more then that to actually make the shortlist lol.
so i know i cant and wont amrry any of the brothers from my community as we are not compatible, im lookign for soemone strong in dee, some one who can stimualte me intelectually, and challange my ideas and thoughts. not someone who doesnt want to discuss islam doesnt want to wake up for fajr, doesnt want to act like a muslim basically.
If that means ill be alone forever so be it, but i do know that there is someone out there for us, allah knows who is bets for us and who is made to be our partner, its just soemtiems we never meet them, maybe becuase we took a differnt path in life and our paths never crossed or maybe becuase we decided not to go to the mosque one day and on that day he was there but you werent.
There is a poem i read a whiel ago about this actuall matter, and it was quiet sweet in one part where it said that "if we don't meet in this life time then inshallah we will be togther in the life after death" which i thought was very sweet.
Anyway dont give up sis
