          gheyness :vomit:
          Some claim that u are like any one of us, But who can claim, to have visited the Arsh? We say bashr, but respect is also due. For mankind are like rocks, but a pearl are u. U travelled the 7Heavens, and ur eyes did not lie. For Jibril could not pass, but u, O Madani, glided by.

            An interesting follow-up question could be;

            Are you still married after marrying in either of those situations.

              Sensitive question, for some?

                The results, so far, seem very interesting. There seems to be many people that loved their partner even before they married each other. I think this refers to my thread about "LOVE MARRIAGES" and how people went about it, and made sure that the manner in which they stuck glue to their relationship was brought about. I believe itm would be really reassuring if those that voted yes could share their stories (how the marriage went ahead) in my thread which is located here. http://www.ummah.com/forum/showthread.php?t=168453

                  I didn't love my hubby before I married him, though I believe people can love each other before they get married. I also think love is overrated....:o

                      I think mercy, understanding, being considerate, kindness and wisdom are also important. Love is important, but people pin all their hopes on this one thing. Some people may love each other but they don't know how to express love or they lack so badly in other ways it doesn't matter if love is there anymore. People who want to be loved may know that their spouse loves them but he/she does not express it in a way where they 'feel' loved.

                        Kal-El i think your poll is quite misleading. What do you actually mean by "Did you love him/her before you married?"

                        • Childhood friends (grew up together) >>> Had the hot's for each other (and loved her ever since) >>> Got married
                        • Met her at university (developed some kind of love for her) >>> Got married.
                        • Engaged (developing love by writing love letters etc;) >>> Got married.

                        Am i making sense? :o

                              Although I knew and appreciated how good a muslim my husband was masha'Allah, I married him for love.

                              Luckily when I learned more and my iman grew enough to fully understand how a muslim spouse needs to be selected according to certain criteria, I didn't find myself disappointed. Alhamdulillah.

                              Romantic love as depicted in the Western culture/media is fed to us all since a very young age...so it can be difficult to escape that ideal, but a muslim should know better: a better, higher kid of love (that for the sake of Allah) which still includes affection, passion and closeness insha'Allah.

                              And this love is the absolute best because Allah SWT Himself puts the seed of it in us. How can anything else compare?

                              This love exists, so I hope young muslims and muslimahs won't fall for the rom com c**p, because that's selling yourself tragically short:(
                              "...Creator of the heavens and the earth! You are my Protector and my Guardian in this world and the Hereafter. Make me die as a Muslim,and join me with the righteous."12:101
                              Please as you read this, make du'a to Allah SWT to guide all those "interested in Islam" to take the decisive step.
