What would be your guys’ thoughts if I chose to get married…let’s say…next year
(I’ll be 18)
Just curious to get some general thoughts.
Being an introvert isn’t a bad thing, you just need to learn to live with yourself. Society says you’re antisocial and enjoy loneliness, but that isn’t true.
Who on earth enjoys being lonely? I mean honestly, has anyone actually ever read the definition of lonely?
affected with, characterized by, or causing a depressing feeling of being alone; lonesome.
There is a difference between enjoying loneliness, and enjoying being alone.
Coming Soon: I’ll Just Pray at Home - A Commentary on How to Live as a Muslim Introvert
As an outsider, a convert, I don’t fit in with the Arabs. I don’t fit in the South Asians. I don’t fit in with the Africans. And you all remind me of this. You remind me when you ask why I’m not wearing a hijab. You remind me when you go all haraam police on me.
Remember that we converts, we’re still babies in Islam. We’re still learning. You may know how to pray properly from birth, we don’t. You may understand Arabic, we don’t.
We’ve never fasted in the name of Allah. We’ve never been to an Eid celebration. We’ve never attended Jummah. For some of us, we’ve never dressed modestly.
It’s all new to us.
Don’t point out the mistakes we’re making. Don’t criticize us for not knowing. Don’t laugh at us for not understanding.
We spend Eid alone. We fast alone. We pray alone.
If you want to help us, invite us over during Ramadan. If you want to help us, give us tips not criticisms. If you want to help us, teach us, not laugh.
“People, I have discovered, are layers and layers of secrets. You believe you know them, that you understand them, but their motives are always hidden from you, buried in their own hearts. You will never know them - but you decide to trust them.”
