♥ Marriage ♥

Hameedeh

2,308 views

Marriage is not easy. You have to get to know each other. You are used to doing everything your own way. Now you need to compromise. Share with each other. Give and take. If you take more than you give, it won't be as sweet. Do not expect more from your spouse than your spouse will need from you. Life is good. It's better when you are together. If you both do your best. 

 May your days be sunny, your nights restful, and your heart satisfied with the blessings that Allah has given you. Think Positive.

I just got back from a family gathering. We realized almost all of the couples there had been married over 30 years. We were being teased for being " lightweights" by the parents of one of the couples. They had been married 60+ years. We talked about how we'd all had our ups and downs, but we were all happy with our spouses in the end. It was a beautiful day.

May we all live long enough to celebrate our 60 years anniversaries.

Having a husband older than yourself is not a problem but there are things to consider before you make the decision to marry. A man who is older might expect you to listen to his advice and always do what he says. If you enjoy the attention and respect of an older man who will give you advice, plan everything himself and guide you to a better life, then your marriage will be pleasant. If you are an independent person who wants to plan your own activities, make your own decisions or don't want anyone to give you advice, you could marry someone who will let you tell him what to do.

Marriage depends on the intentions. Its the intention that affects the future of a relationship. Less and less people in the West are getting married which makes life harder for Muslims especially. Its all about intention.

My advice was for someone who is not married! Since you are already married, a book like "Youth and Spouse Selection" would be obsolete, because you have already gone beyond that stage. In your case, read the book "Principles Of Marriage & Family Ethics". See if you are doing the things that a wife needs to do in Part 1, before you ask if your husband is doing the things in Part 2. I'm sure that you are a smart sister and can make the effort to enhance the happiness of your marriage, and in return your husband will be likely to reciprocate toward you. Tolerate each other and adjust. Then depend on each other and cooperate more. Love must be maintained and increased. Allah help you.

Muslims believe that Jesus AS is a Prophet of God (Allah). We honor him and love him just as Christians do, but we do not ascribe divinity to him. Blessings come to us from our Creator and Sustainer (Allah).

      The Seventh Imam, Musa Ibn Ja'far Al-Kadhim AS was living in the Holy City of Medina, and while he was praying at the tomb of the Holy Prophet SA, he was arrested, then the tyrant Harun ar-Rashid kept him in prison in Baghdad for almost four years in a cell so small he could not stand up tall to say his prayers. On the 25th of Rajab, Harun had Imam Kadhim AS martyred by poison. Even his corpse was desecrated and taken from the prison and left in view on the Bridge of Baghdad. His devotees managed to bury Imam Kazim AS in al-Kazimiyyah (Iraq). Although Imam Kazem AS was living under complete oppression, he kept positive. May Allah SWT keep us all on the straight path and keep us positive.

      Am I not allowed to grow a little confidence?
      To get past my self consciousness?
       
      Why youse gotta restrict me 
      From getting rid of my insecurity
      Youse will never understand why I keep disobeying
      Youse may think I'm selfish, but I keep praying 
      Hoping for a miracle to pass by and change your minds
       
      I know that it's for my protection 
      But I'm old enough to depend on my own
      Everyday I keep staring at my reflection 
      Wondering when youse will leave me alone.
       
      But seriously though
       
       
      Am I not allowed to grow a little more confidence?
      To get past my self consciousness?

      I'm only pretty if I have enough likes
      I'm not so pretty if I only have five 
       
      I'm only popular if I have many friends 
      I'm only special if I start to follow these trends
       
      I only get noticed with makeup
      Without it I'm no longer recognised
       
      You need that flat stomach and those fine curves 
      So you choose to put yourself  through that pain you don't deserve
      Starving yourself till your rib cages begin to show
      You want to be like the rest, because your self esteem is so low
       
      Society is committing a crime
      With how they define beauty
      Girls can no longer be themselves
      'Cause they fear society's judgements.
       
      Society made you forget your true beauty 
      That lies beneath all those flaws.

      Tolerance is inherently moral and necessarily social. And it can only be applied to people who are different, people you wouldn't consider part of "your" group. It is taught, a developed moral characteristic that may become part of who you are. We aren't born tolerant though, and that is why so many groups of influence have tried to develop this concept of group. Fascism itself is based on it. Our natural intolerance spreads as the worst virus if there are no forces to put an end to it. This is what sociology, so far, has been able to appreciate in the concept of tolerance at a macro-social level, and it has its reasons.
      If tolerance is not natural to us, but rather "homophily" (the preference of those with similar characteristics: race, socio-economical class, ideology, etc.), then tolerance is a trait that we can only develop through education, and only if we find it any useful or right.
      In the Qur'an it was already pointed that we were created in different groups:
      "O mankind, indeed We have created you from male and female and made you peoples and tribes that you may know one another." (Surat al Hujurat)
      So I can just expect that for an early Arabic society this indeed meant a call for tolerance for a religion that was going to spread across many nations. It was useful. However, nowaday, this is not what we, as individuals, face. Living in a globalized world, being connected by the Internet and its very own culture, tolerance seems less and less necessary and useful. Ideologies and groups compete between each other, and a call for tolerance is against the efforts to reinforce that feeling of group. It isn't useful for many. Not to mention that tolerance is a highly difficult trait to acquire, as it requires great efforts of empathy. Ask yourselves to which point can you accept the different? And I don't mean their mere existence, most don't care about that. I mean tolerating someone different that is part of your life, in some way or another. We have always been taught to be tolerant when it has been useful, but not because it is good, because it is morally right. Because it is not among the interest of any group of influence. Groups, as the master of history and sociology of the Muslim world once said, Ibn Khaldun, have only one goal: power.
      That's why, even revolutions, that are supposed to be the fight for ideas, end up in some sort of fascism and/or dictatorship. Even when the people that lead them truly wanted free elections (modern history is full of examples of this, it is something we can't avoid). They are still necessary, though, for the progress of ideas.
      What happens, however, in our societies? In the West, tolerance has been imposed as something useful, but racism, mysogyny, LGBTphobia, etc. are still realities that many people even hate to discuss (many people attack feminism, for instance). In the Muslim world, tolerance died centuries ago, and an enormous amount of groups appeared. We are still reinforcing through our culture this intolerance, based on unreasonable discrimination: country of origin, skin color, studies, amount of money, gender, sexuality, beliefs, family/tribe name, etc. You can realize this inability to accept the different for instance in the topic of marriage, at what type of characteristic will people, parents, or ourselves if we have sons or daughters to marry, will look at. And it's not always the obvious (like don’t be racist). It is usually ideological. We can't accept other mentalities because we weren't taught about that, because the group we belong to doesn't want that.
      Tolerance isn't only about accepting black people, or trans people, or seeing women as equals. People will probably try to appear as tolerant in that sense, because it is useful for them. However, as a moral trait, these people are not genuinely tolerant, but conveniently civilized. Real tolerance is being able to respect others by their opinion, beliefs, lifestyle, and of course, biological circumstances. Accept them as long as you are not tolerating the intolerant.
      This conflict is paradoxical, and it is a well known paradox in social sciences (originally proposed by Karl Popper). The problem with tolerating the intolerant, as I said at the start of this entry, is precisely how fast and easily their intolerance spreads (because it is natural). As individuals and iA as free thinkers, we should fight to develop tolerance within ourselves and condemn intolerance even when it is present in those people who are part of "our" group (be it our racial "group", ideological, whatever). Intolerance isn't a joke, it's a social human and moral issue of high importance, and has always shaped our destiny.
      Thus, I can only advise my readers to dedicate some time to observe that aspect of their hearts, if they behaved in a tolerant manner, identify our errors, ask for forgiveness to the Most Merciful, and ask him to guide us and make us more aware of being tolerant when we are, again, tested in life. Remember to ask Him to guide me as well, iA.

      Please let me help you 
      Let me help you get this through 
      We share the same blood
      And I want you to be loved
       
      Look I know that you're depressed
      And I know that you're in distress
       
      But I wish you could open up
      Instead of always shutting up
      You choose to conceal yourself 
      And I still don't know why 
      sometimes I hate myself 
      For even having to try 
      To make you fess up 
       
      I know you don't want my help 
      Maybe I do suck at giving advice 
      But why should I leave you to silently yelp
      When I'm here for you, but you're just like ice
       
      I am always contemplating
      And always wondering
      Whether I've done more than enough 
       
      I want to be there for you
      But you keep pushing me away
      So I chose to do the same
       
      Please let me help you 
      Let me help you get this through
      We share the same blood
      And I want you to be loved.

      When I'm in pain you say it won't last
      But I see you still paining about the past
       
      When I'm in tears you tell me to keep smiling
      But I still see you curled up in the corner crying
       
      You tell everyone it'll be alright 
      But the space around you is tight 
       
      You tell everyone you're fine
      But I already know that's a lie
       
      It's never that easy to let go 
      That strong feeling of betrayal
      But one day they'll know 
      Just how much they left you in denial .
