Being an American raised in strict Baptist faith..I lost much family and friends…i became Muslim in 2013…thankfully I gained dear friends who help me and my Arabic Quran came from Iraq and from those who became now my dear family….even though at times it is hard to live in a society as I do…I have never regretted one moment..I still have so much to learn…but I keep trying…and as you I am proud.

Marriage is not what everyone thinks it is. It’s not waking up early every morning to make breakfast and eat together. Its not cuddling in bed together until both of you peacefully fall asleep. It’s not a clean home and a homemade meal every day. It’s someone who steals all the covers and knees you in the face because the bed is too small for both of you. It’s slammed doors and few harsh words, fights and the silent treatment, it’s wondering if you’ve made the right decision.
It is, despite all of those things, the one thing you look forward to every day.
It’s coming home to the same person everyday that you know loves and cares about you. It’s laughing about the one time you accidentally did something stupid.
It’s about eating the cheapest and easiest meal you can make and sitting down together at 10pm to eat because you both had a crazy day. It’s when you have an emotional breakdown and your love lays on the floor with you and holds you and tells you everything is going to be okay, and you believe them. It’s when “Netflix and chill” literally means you watch Netflix and hang out.
It’s about still loving someone even though they make you absolutely insane.
Living with the person you love is countless fights about absolutely nothing, but is also having a love that people spend their whole life looking for.
It’s not perfect and it’s hard, but it’s amazing and comforting and the best thing you’ll ever experience.
Go ahead and share a picture of the person you love and copy and paste this, make their day.

#CelebrateMercy -— Rabiʾ al awwal 1438: Loving the Prophet (ﷺ)
Lady ‘Ā’ishah related that a man came to the Prophet (ﷺ) saying: “O God’s Messenger, I love you more than myself, my wife and children. When I am at home and remember you, I cannot wait to come and gaze at you. Though when I remember my death and your death, I know that when you enter Paradise, you will be raised-up with the Prophets. But even if I enter Paradise, I am afraid I will never see you.” The Prophet (ﷺ) did not answer him until the following was sent down to him, “Whoever obeys Allāh and His Messenger, they are with those whom Allah has favoured, of the Prophets, the highest saints, the martyrs and the righteous. They are the best of company.” [4:69]
Subḥān’Allāh, the concern wasn’t if he would end up in heaven, but if he would be close to the Prophet (ﷺ) or not.
