I hope to one day have enough knowledge about Islam to speak with such eloquence and conviction about it. Mehdi Hasan is indeed an amazing ambassador for the religion of Islam.

Anonymous whispered:
Salaam! I've heard that marriage is a gift from Allah. It completes your Iman. Is it possible that Allah is not happy with me if I'm not married yet? What should I do to please Him?


Wa alykum as-salaam!

Please don’t take this as me being rude, but I’m going to be to-the-point:

1) Chill

2) Have patience

3) Everything is a test from God, stop looking at things as “rewards” or “punishments,” both good and bad times are tests from God.

4) Focus on being a good person, here’s a “cliffnotes” version of how to please God:

"True piety does not consist in turning your faces towards the east or the west - but truly pious is he who believes in God, and the Last Day; and the angels, and revelation, and the prophets; and spends his substance - however much he himself may cherish it - upon his near of kin, and the orphans, and the needy, and the wayfarer, and the beggars, and for the freeing of human beings from bondage; and is constant in prayer, and renders the purifying dues; and [truly pious are] they who keep their promises whenever they promise, and are patient in misfortune and hardship and in time of peril: it is they that have proved themselves true, and it is they, they who are conscious of God.” - Qur’an [2:177]

5) Marriage is considered half of you Deen, but we should stop looking at this statement as simply saying that “by marrying someone, I’ve done half my duty as a Muslim.”

Instead, you should realize that marriage will be the ultimate test of your Islam. It’s easy to be nice to your friends, to the people at the Mosque, which are things we already don’t do by the way, but think about the people you see everyday. Do we give patience to those in our own home? Do we mistreat them? Scream at them? Huff and puff when they ask for our help?

Marriage is a huge test, so thank God you are not being tested until you are ready to take on such task.
