Have trust in Allah..everything has been pre-destined even our partners in life....tawakkal for the things that are beyond our human capability and He will help us facilitate to what we are meant to have...what misses us is not meant for us and what hits us is indeed meant for us..

It is the responsibility of a parent to make sure that their daughters are married when they are of age. Matchmaking should be a good suggestion if they could not find partners on their own.

There are two kind of Fate - One is Natural Fate, the other is Administered Fate. Finding spouse and making sure that our marriage works is Administered Fate.

Putting on hijab should start from within. Do it for Allah not for anything else. Then you will feel comfortable physically and spiritually.

Ahh but you see many of the reverts  don't have parents... or cannot find a Wali... folks, even Imams are opting out...

I say a game show! lol

Why blame just US, it happens in India as well. I feel  its better to be late than to move on with such minds since such thoughts are n't  limited till hijab, Its implies that such persons are n't really mindful of Islam.

Hope those are your views sister. {Not the saying of any sufis Smile} Am of the opinion that its mostly, so called in your words - "natural fate". To strive in life thru right means, is all that matters and accounts. Rest all is followed by fate. To have faith in fate is one of the components of belief.


Putting on hijab should start from within. Do it for Allah not for anything else. Then you will feel comfortable physically and spiritually.

Coming to the subject of discussion, hijab shud be wore for the sake of obeying the commands of Allah swt.  Dawah is naturally done when we wear it. Hijabis shud be conscious that they now represent not themselves or there family, but the religion they belong to. I know a woman who was intrested to know of Islam. She was in a meeting where she found other muslimahs. She moved only towards a muslimah who wore hijab to get her doubts clarified. Eventually, after her rapport for about 2 months with that sister , she embraced Islam. She said that she felt as this muslimah wears hijab, she must be more conscious of God and that made her talk to her.



Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: “All the descendants of Adam are sinners, and the best of sinners are those who repent."

Mashallah!!!

I so much love this line!!!!
This is what I call true faith, sobhanallah!!

Our clothing should be an outward manifestation of the deen we believe and practice in our heart and minds. We must be modest in the way we think, what we do, what we say, where we go, what we hear etc. On the day when we are made to stand in front of Allah, our body parts themselves will either testify for us or against us.

Our hijab must reflex our inner love of the deen and Allah and our determination to live a life pleasing to our Creator from Whom nothing is hidden.
