  • Who are you? (describe yourself)

    Assalamualaykum Ummah,

    So I went to a masjid this morning to inquire about marriage help. Alhamdulillah they have a program to help people find a spouse. They gave me a form to fill. On the form, after the usual stuff (name, age, occupation, etc) comes the core of it: who are you? (describe yourself) in about 20 lines. my mind goes blank, what should I write? Should I list my good and bad traits? Should I describe my daily ibadah, such as that I pray in masjid, pray the sunnah, etc? And about salary, should I write it? What do you think?
    I'm on a strict time management regiment and have to limit my time online. Therefore I have to reply selectively. Please don't be offended if I ignore your questions. :jkk:

      :wswrwb:

      I would answer the question just as how someone would want to know about their potential spouse. When you ask someone who they are, what is it that you think is important to know that would be put into consideration for marriage?

      I don't think salary is important to know, but it could be good to mention if you are able to afford a household, a family. To mention about your ibadah is not a bad idea, anyone would want to know if their potential spouse is praying and fasting.
      "Let the days do as they please, and be optimistic when destiny decrees. Do not despair due to the events of the past, for the events of this world were not meant to last." - Imam Shafi'i

            "I'm a wandering nomad. My journey and goals arduous but a journey I yearn to fufill for at journey's end lies half of my deen, a love only second to our lord and Prophet :saw:. For centuries have we sought this treasure but some have failed. May Allah guide mine".

              :salams:

              This is always the worst part and the most boring part.

              I tell them I'm dangerous and if they don't like it, then it really isn't my loss. But it is worded differently, maybe this is where I'm going wrong? lol not really

              It's so hard, I have nothing to say about myself (even my siblings don't lool), I'm very boring. And when I come across profiles that are very outgoing and active, I'm feeling a bit :-/ I am just a zombie.

              I think poetry would be lame, I'm sorry. Unless you do it properly, it has to be good, decent not dodgy and creepy. Don't be something you're not, and I agree with another post, be honest and be yourself. No point of pretending, after all you'll have to try to live with this woman FOREVER AND EVER AND EVER.

              All the best

              So, which of the favours of your lord will you deny? ~ Surah Ar Rahman

                I don't think the girls get to read it perhaps the whoever in charge of the program and the imam/walis do.

                  So the woman doesn't get the chance to know the background of the man before the imam get them to meet?

                    Do you think I have to mention my introversion?

                        So is reserved a code for shy when it's a female?

                          I signed up to a marriage site for the lolz. I remember finding it so hard to describe myself. In the end, I was like scratch this since I wasn't even serious about it in the first place hahaha.

                            Huh? :scratch:

                            introvert to me is someone who shares very little, a reserved person however is someone who is willing to open up but it just takes them time.

                              Seriously, do you read what you write? It comes across as something a toddler would write with crayons on the wall, except you have a keyboard.
                              Believe none of what you hear, and only half of what you see.
