A very good question. In fact three, first is not marrying for for requirement, second is compromise on requirements, and thrid is why not now.
The answer to first question is--YES I will compromise on my requirements but definitely would like to get married.
Though I as single, I live with a highly busy schedule to grow professionally and personally, I enjoy and cherish it. I do everything on my own, Alhamdullaih, never felt any problem in cooking, cleaning and laundry work for myself. Actually, I dont need some to do this for me
If Mohammed SA can do it why not me.
I enjoy my single life, socially and financially free, comfortable, and working in a high profile company. On the other hand, I want to get married for sure and as soon as possible. The reasons are
1. It is sunnah
2. Allah SWT blessed me with al most everything Alhamdullaih and specially financial freedom and high profile contact, I am affraid of not being able to protect myself for a long time so ....
3. I strongly believe that Inshallah I can run a wonderful muslim family. I can give my childeren the best education in the world and make
them superb muslims, Inshallah.
Second question was about compromising at some requirements.
Alhamdullaih I kept them simple. For me
1. Deen -- Sorry!!! I can not compromise on this no matter what. If i dont get one who is religious (which is not possible now a days), I will wait. Hijaab, I consider it as a symbol of commitment to certain level. I can not go for someone who is not wearing hijaab. If someone wants to cover her face after marriage I would definitely stand for her, where ever I live or go Inshallah.
2. Beauty -- Before asking for Angelina, i check myself, I m not Brad Pitt so...
I would close my eyes and go for someone who is above average in looks slim and simple, with a descent height.
My looks are above average and I m little over average hight of a man and very sportive
so just look for similar. I think I can
compromise a little on this.
3. Education -- I m looking for university grad, if I get one that is excellent Alhamdullaih. Otherwise I can compromise to a considerable extent.
4. Social/ Family Status - I really dont care this
Alhamdullah we will make this on our own with help and grace of Allah, the Almighty.
The last question was about why not now..
Thats why I m here
Alhamdulliah I meet people check them on these lines. see thier intensions and move ahead. The moment I feel someone is close to my requirements Inshallah, I will go ahead. And consider her as the best I can get (more precious and beautiful than Angelina- atleast for me) Inshallah.
It was great writing this. Answering this made me clear what I m looking for Alhamdullaih.
Thanks to Jannah for a great question.. and Muslimah21, I 100 % agree with you.
