As salaamu alaikum,

Brother Robin don't take this personally towards yourself but more so towards the understanding I am seeking to grasp by those who say things like this. Is there any love without ALLAH? Is not your love for ALLAH reflected in how you interact with others? So if a man wants to spend money to by his wife roses and chocolates....all that "lovey dovey" stuff with the intention of pleasing ALLAH by showing kindness to his wife...is this not serving ALLAH?

I just am confused because I am hearing this a lot from muslims...the 'screw the love crap'. Makes me feel as if we have full fledge fulfilled the prophecy of following the jews legalistic mentality of the earlier generations.

The many love we have today is ´´first sight love´´ and is not real love. Real love between a husband and wife grows when they start to understand each other, this can take years. It means that both and wife and husband both share islamic knowledge with each other, disscuss it, and at a point they agree with each other. How more they agree with each other, how more they find understanding and similarities with each
other. And this only increases, also the real love comes when both are working on imaan. Praying together, reading qu´ran together, and teach each other things. The things your talking about are indeed good. And shows your romance for your wife (Mash'Allah)

The fake love i´m talking about is like this and i've witnessed it in real life. This is not love but corrupt nafs. And this kind of love if you let it loose it will decreases your love for Allah. And this kind of love only focus on lust and your appearance.

I hope i explained it a bit.

Salaam

Ridwhan.

assalamwalaikum ppl but can I cut in for a sec? I can never hate people I love everybody for the sake of Allah SWT but I guess one of the reasons why people say screw the love crap is so no-one ends up in a "haraam-relationship" (like dating) because the word Love is so mis-used these day and also Love is a very VERY VEEERRRRRRYYYYY IMPORTANT thing in a marriage if there's no love in a marriage then that is not a real marriage its just two people just kinda put together but not bonded together and last time I checked LOVE was that beautiful bond. :)

I just realize my manner of speaking is waaaaaaaay different from most. We can be saying the same thing but people need to repeat what I say in their own way so that they can confirm it for themselves that their understanding is correct. This has been something I noticed a lot and increasing more and more lately.

No,i think its the matter of age and experience.You are right as well as Robin.

For me love is all about respect and caring.Getting married is not always rainbows and butterflies,It's compromise that moves two persons along.Otherwise the ghost of cute or IT-factor usually left of in a few days....!

@7:41


@ the beginning (I recommend the whole lecture.)

Imran Hosein interprets the description of Allah's words about man and woman's love for each other.

@Robin In Islam we recognize the marriages of non-Muslims, correct? Does this mean they do not have real love if they aren't Muslim? Just want to hear your opinion here.

Hmm well, word love this day is greatly abused. Also consider that this day and time people marry at a much older age especially in the west. They do that because at that time they finally ''know each other''.

But people marry mostly because of the love crap and this is the sad part. And those people don't marry for the sake of Allah and their imaan. They marry for their ego.

I ask because I was in a secular relationship with my wife before we took shahada. We had been friends since high school and dated before we took shahada. I loved her then, and I love her now, only more so now that the years have added to it.


So when are we going to see some new wedding pics?

Mash'Allah that's good, you see how older you are and how more you know each other, how more the love to each other grows, to gain that is what i mentioned in my first post here.

May Allah(SWT) bless your marriage life. Ameen

May Allah(SWT) let you both strive for the akhira. Ameen

Yes he is definitely right. the above quote of myself shouldn't even have been on here....it has nothing to do with this...was really I guess outwardly reflecting on a very reoccuring experience I've been having for about the last 2 years.

enough of my words....carry on with the wedding celebrations lol

I'm pretty sure our wedding only cost whatever it cost to buy the marriage license, the cake, and a little sadaqah into the poor box when it was over.


Rassoul Allah said "The less spent on wedding ceimonies the more barakah (blessings" sadag Rassoul Allah

Ill tell you where i come from weddings are a social event and have very little to do with the mariage itself. The average cost of a mid class wedding about a million dollars...the going rate for a 'high class society wedding' over $ 10 million....i kid you not!

And to prove the Prophet true, the 'official' divorce rate is 48% the actual divorce rate is 68% I was told this stat by a lawyer. We spend the most in the region on weddings and subhan Allah our divorce rate is the highest in the region....This is us slip sliding our way down towards the jaheleya we were supposed avoid.
Money is a responsibility and not a right...if its continued in squandering while other muslims cant eat, Wallah Allah will take it away and add a cherry on the top

So Be happy you are blessed, may Allah protect you from the eye and give you and you wife endless barakah and rizg! :)

We had a more of celebration for our families later....nothing like a bbq at a park!
