Nikah is such a commitment that changes our lives completely. Your spouse brings a whole new perspective of looking at the world. But when do we meet the right person? How long is the wait? When is the right time and when is it going to come? These are some of the general questions we often ask Allah in silence. We eagerly wait for the day to share our lives with someone. The day it happens becomes one of the most beautiful days. But what to do till you get answers to those questions?
Patience is the key. Yes, patience might sound very minimal but its consequences have a lot of weight. Before your Nikah, you need to train your mind as well as heart to remain patient. Your patience will stop you from indulging in any haram acts. Once you start practicing patience while waiting for the right person, you observe a lot of Sunnah of the Prophet (P.B.U.H.). You start to lowering your gaze, limit your interaction with the opposite gender, stop attending haram gatherings, and do not value any worldly relationships. With patience, you train your heart to wait for the Halal love. Love that happens after Nikah. Have you read the first Halal love in Islam? Click the link to read.
In today’s fleeting times, young Muslims are impulsive and do not pay attention to the small acts that turn into grave sins later. We should try to control our nafs and wait for the person that Allah has decided for us. Verily, Allah has made the best plan for us. And, when you will follow the Sunnah of Allah, He will bless you with the best of the best. Ameen.
