I am married.
Ahh I can still hardly believe it subhanAllah. I have been married for 4 months now alhamdulillah.
In Islam they say that "marriage is half the deen."
SubhanAllah I can really see why. Especially considering the VAST majority of my muslim interaction time is with my husband. All of my muslim manners are practiced with my husband, taking care of my home and husband is considered 3ibada, and we remind each other about Islam (enjoining good and forbidding bad).
InshaAllah I get ajr for being patient with my husband and for protecting and managing his home. I even get ajr for not letting random people into my house!
ahahahahahahahaha, it says "before marriage, after marriage"
SubhanAllah marriage is an excellent institution. We get help and company and emotional fuzzies and ajr and financial support and... other stuff.
Now don't get me wrong. It isn't all rainbows and butterflies... You have to work too. And you get PLENTY of opportunities to practice your patience. And a lot of times you have to put someone else's needs before your own.
But it's rewarding alhamdulillah. It is fulfilling.
I pray that Allah give you happiness in your marriage, or send you the ideal husband if you are net yet married ameeeen!!!
