Your library is your portrait.

the reason why so many people prefer older men isnt because we have some sort of kink but because we know young teenage boys are a complete disaster that can only be salvaged by the sands of time

A handwritten note, scrawled in Arabic on a torn cigarette pack, was discovered on the ground last week in Pozzallo as migrants filed off a ship. It was from someone initialed “A” to someone else initialed “R.”

“I wanted to be with you,” read the note. “Don’t you dare forget me. I love you very much. My wish is for you not to forget me. Be well my love. A loves R. I love you.”

Asalamu alaikum before deciding to marry someone do u look at there past or do u let it go?


Walaikum Assalaam Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuhu,

With regard to his/her past you mean that a person has a relation with someone or did any bad act. It depends that if the person has left all the things and trying his/her best to become a better Muslim then there is no need to go in depth, it will only make the person uncomfortable. The first thing we should look for when marrying is how committed the person is to Islam. Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi was sallam) said, “A woman is normally sought as a wife for her wealth, beauty, nobility, or religiousness (adherence to Islam), but choose a religious woman and you will prosper. ” (Muslim) And he said, “A woman is married for four things, i.e., her wealth, her family status, her beauty and her religion. You should marry the religious woman (otherwise) you will be a loser. “(Bukhari) And he said, “The whole world is a provision, and the best object of benefit of the world is the pious woman. ” (Muslim)

The same holds true when looking for a husband, as the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu alayhi was sallam) said, “When someone with whose religion and character you are satisfied asks to marry your daughter, comply with his request. If you do not do so, there will be corruption and great evil on earth. ” (Tirmidhi)

“A man asked Hasan bin ‘Ali (radi Allah) “I have a daughter and people have proposed to her, so to whom should i marry her?”

He said, “Marry her to one who fears Allah, for if he loves her, he will honor her; and if he hates her, he will not wrong her.“”

[Gems and Jewels | Page 171]

As we look for spouse we make unrealistic expectations but the truth is that no one is perfect and we are made to complete each other. The important factor that we should consider that a person should be God fearing because if he/she is God fearing he/she will fulfill your rights completely because they know that he/she will be answerable on the Day of Judgment.

Following are the dua’s for marriage that you can recite:

1.Perform your obligatory prayer and after every prayer recite this dua you will get a good husband/wife when the time’s come in shaa Allah,

"Our Lord, grant us from among our wives and offspring comfort to our eyes and make us an example for the righteous." (Quran 25:74)

2.Rabbi inni lemaa anzalta elayya min khairin faqeer (Chapter 28, verse 24)

My Lord! I am needy of whatever good You Send down for me

So, what you have to do is after you read this verse a number of times; make sure to ask Allah (God) in a way similar to what follows:

 "Oh Allah! You have made every living thing in pairs. The sincere, beautiful and pious pair that you have created for me, please give it to me"

It is recommended that one recites this verse at least 10times and after finishing this dua ask Allah Almighty for a spouse that is kind, beautiful, soft hearted, pious, loving and a gentle soul mate. What you want in your spouse is what you should ask but if you don’t ask for piety or kind heartedness then don’t blame anyone but yourself.

3.”Rabbana aatina fi’d dunya hasana wa fi’l aakhirati hasana wa qina `adhab an-nar.” [O Lord! Grant us good in this life, and good in the next, and save us from the torment of the Fire] (Qur’an, 2: 200). Recite this dua’ with the intention of marriage as it is included in the phrase “fi’d dunya hasana” (good in this life).

4.My Lord, do not leave me alone and You are the best of inheritors. (Surah al-Anbiya` 21:89)

I hope it will be helpful. May Allah guide us all to the straight path.



I think what makes turning to God when you’re sad so powerful is that He already knows why you’re crying.


It’s important to make friendships that are deeper than gossiping and drinking and smoking and going out.

Make friends who you can go get breakfast with, make friends you can cry with, make friends who support your life goals and believe in you.

Oh Allah, remove from my life anyone and anything that takes me away from You and remembrance of You and bring closer to me anyone and anything who brings me closer to You and Your remembrance, aameen
