Muslimcreed – As Muslim women, we all know that our society often treats us as second-class citizens – and the marriage problem shows it. Single, 30-something Muslim women are the only group of singles more likely to live with their parents than with a partner, according to Pew Research Center data from 2007-2012.
Why does this happen? Is it because we’re less attractive than non-Muslim women or that we aren’t making enough money? Or could it be that Allah has something different in mind for our lives than what the media paints it to be?
Understanding the definition of marriage in Islam
In Islam, Marriage is the only legal way to get married. It’s a simple contract between a man and woman, in which they both agree to live together as husband and wife. But there’s more to it than that. Marriage also has a spiritual meaning, as it’s seen as a way to please Allah and strengthen the bond between husband and wife.
The Ruling on Marriage Misconceptions
It’s a common misconception that Marriage , or Islamic marriage, is simply a contract between two people. In reality, Marriage is a sacred contract between two souls who are committed to spending their lives together in accordance with the teachings of Islam.
So why am I still single? Could it be that Allah is angry with me? I know there are many Muslims and non-Muslims alike who have concluded this based on media portrayals of Muslim women being suppressed by men. However, this is far from the truth.
The Qur’an makes it clear that we’re each granted different degrees of success as individuals and one such factor may include our marital status (or lack thereof).
The following verse from Surat Al-Insan says Successful indeed are the believers. Those who offer their Salaahs at night and at noon. In other words, it’s possible for someone to worship sincerely yet still not find love due to factors beyond his or her control.
The Reality of Being Single in Islam
It’s a common question that plagues single Muslims: why am I still not married? For some, the answer may be as simple as they haven’t found the right person yet. But for others, there may be a deeper reason. Maybe Allah is angry with them.
Becoming a Role Model as a Single Muslim Woman
I often hear my friends and family members ask me why I’m still single. They see me as a strong, independent woman and can’t understand why I haven’t been able to find a husband. While I appreciate their concern, I know that the answer isn’t as simple as they think. It could be that Allah is angry with me.
Are you doing everything else right but still single?
If you’re doing everything else right but still single, it could be that Allah is angry with you. It’s possible that you’re not meant to be married, and there’s nothing you can do about it. Or, it could be that you’re doing something wrong without realizing it. Here are some things to consider if you’re wondering why you’re still single
Dealing With Family Pressure
I grew up in a culture where marriage is considered the norm and anything else is looked down upon. As a result, I’ve always felt immense pressure from my family to get married. But, at the same time, I can’t help but wonder if there’s a reason why I’m still single. Could it be that Allah is angry with me?
What to Do When Life Feels Like Crap, But There’s Nothing Wrong With You
We’ve all been there. Life feels like crap, but we can’t pinpoint why. Maybe our job sucks, or we’re going through a rough patch in our relationship. Whatever the case may be, here are seven things you can do when life feels like crap and you can’t figure out why.
Handling Friends’ Questions
My friends often ask me why I’m still single. They’ll say things like, You’re such a catch! Why haven’t you been snapped up yet? or Is there something wrong with you? It can be frustrating, especially since I know they don’t mean any harm. But sometimes I can’t help but wonder if they’re right. Maybe there is something wrong with me. Maybe Allah is angry with me and that’s why I haven’t found a husband yet.
How to Move Forward in the Face of Adversity
No one said life was easy. In fact, we all face adversity at some point or another. It’s how we deal with that adversity that defines us as individuals. If you’re currently facing some tough times, here are a few tips on how to move forward in the face of adversity.
It’s important to remember that nobody escapes trials and tribulations in this world, so don’t think of yourself as being special for having them. Instead, take comfort in knowing you’re not alone.
Talk about your feelings with friends and family members who care about you; this will make you feel better and less isolated. Find out what has been going on in their lives too so they can do the same for you.
If there is someone or something specific causing your troubles, then try taking steps to remove those obstacles from your life. For example, if work has been stressing you out lately then find a new job that provides more stability and balance between personal time and work hours.
