I know you await the day you to fulfill half of your deen (religion). You’ve heard it over and over again, get married, start a life but by the will of Allah, it hasn’t happened yet. I know you are losing hope because people are telling you you are getting old or “you are getting past your expiry date.” They also say to you, who will marry you if you get any older? Do they not know that our beloved mother, Khadija (may Allah be pleased with her) married our Prophet Muhammad (peace & blessings be upon him) at the age of 40? So, how could you listen to such falsehood? How could you lose hope? Do you not see that Allah says in Surah An Naba: “And we created you in pairs” [78:8] Do you not see that Allah has set aside someone for you? Why do you lose hope? Is it because your friends are getting married and you feel stranded? Do you think you’ll never be loved or no one will marry you? That is far from true. Hopeful potentials never worked out? Alhamdulilah (thanks to Allah), know that Allah protected you from a trial or tribulation that could have ruined you. You will not expire like milk nor will you die lonely.
Have hope in Allah, make du’aa and be patient, the individual Allah has saved for you will always be there. Allah has written our lives in the womb our of mothers, so just sit and relax, it’ll happen when its meant to be. Don’t be desperate and ruin your life by marrying anybody. Know that you as a Muslim should look for an individual with good Islamic qualities and characteristics. Does their best to follow Islam to the best of their abilities. Money isn’t everything. Good looks isn’t everything but the deen (religion) is everything. It is your ticket to jannah (heaven).
Don’t be hopeless but be hopeful. Have faith in Allah and know your du’aa (supplications) are not going unheard. Allah heard and accepted Prophet Yunus (peace be upon him) du’aa (supplication) from the belly of the whale, so what makes you think yours wont be fulfilled? It is only a matter of time but for now, smile and enjoy life. Take it one day at a time. Your marriage will happen when Allah wills for it no matter what others say, you will get married one day, insha’Allah.
