arabella oolololl



I know it's the 21st century lol !

Next you'll tell me, you'll tell me I'm old enough to make my own decions (heard that line plenty of times before).

Does that mean that if we have values we should sacrifice them?

Confused..

Alhamdulilah allah has given me alot of blessings.

I am finding that meeting people for marriage in Australia is difficult.

Like other girls, I have had many people approach my parents. I haven't let them through the door because I feel they are not what I am looking for.

My friends have tried to introduce me to people, but it seems that the men they know want to get to know a girl before seeing her parents. My parents and I are traditional and like to follow the islamic way.

Any thoughts, comments or suggestions?


Well people don't go to your door to ask for ur hand straight away, rather they go to your door to get-to-know-you better cause they have an interest (Maybe recommended by friends or family friends, or have accidentally seen you somewhere)

Apparently theres some sort of disease in australia that makes expectations high. If you are one of those people who can go overseas and come back together, then that is an option. They don't ask much overseas and most would be more practicing and caring

We are one, but we are many,
And from all the groups of Islam we come,
We share a belief,
And pray to one god,
I am, You are, We are Australian Muslims

I am not against it.... my husband is from overseas. However, we met here. It does need careful consideration though ..... it would be highly dependant on the two parties involved.

It does depend on both sides involved you are right. But given some situations from certain people that they are in here, then what i was saying was they can start to look for options overseas.

What i mean by overseas is muslim populated countries and the country of your origin of course.

Salams,

Alhamdulillah we are fortunate enough to have the blessings of our creator ..ALLAH.

Pearl.. what a wonderful nickname, I'm sure your a real pearl sis but my comment to you is,,, it's hard to find the right partner anywhere in this world not just in Australia. You live in Australia and I recommend that you mix within our Islamic community and find Mr.Right ...right here in Australia.

You say that you are getting many proposals approaching from the door, isn't that the right way a man is surpose to enter. I suggest you allow these so called grooms to at least enter as a guest and a guest is the guest of Allah. Cause you said that you haven't let them through the door as you believe they're not what your looking for. Sis how would you know them if you haven't even let them in, that doesn't make sense. At times we may hear about the man things and make quick decissions but really they turn out to be nothing like we're told. I believe that you should let these men that are honest enough to come from the door than try to come from a window...lol.

Another thing you said.....My parents and I are traditional and like to follow the islamic way. Well sis if this is what you want then I suggest you let your parents have the first say and wait till that right person walks in your home.

Sis you got an older brother or uncle that could act as your Wali? Perhaps the fellas feel a bit too much pressure to impress, meeting with your parents there but might feel a little more relaxed if you have a meeting or two with a brother or uncle (or someone else your parents approve of as a Wali) there?

Just a suggestion,

Cat

^ tell me about it...

Ive heard many horrific stories of men from overseas coming here and marrying etc... and many nice ones... but unfortunately humans have a tendancy to remember the bad more often than the good. So its a no-go for me... Ya Allah.. ameen.

Edit: for OMG's post :P
