My final pieces of advice that I would like to add from myself, for anyone trying to find that special someone to marry are three fold. The first of them is to do your best to get closer to Allah, buy way of doing those obligatory acts of worship, and adding on top of them those non obligatory acts of worship. This is done to gain Allah’s pleasure.
The second is to make sincere repentance for and all sins. This way you will go into the next step with a clean slate in sha Allah.
The third step is to make as much du’aa (supplication) to Allah, asking Him to give you that which is good for you and keep you away from anything that may be harmful to your worldly life, as well as your hereafter.
Again, these are pieces of advice from your brother that you should really consider doing in all of your affairs. They are extremely important though, in this affair of finding a potential spouse. This is because all that comes from the idea of spending the rest of your life with this individual. Things like living together, safety, security, children and much more need to be considered. So be careful and make good choices, so as not to put yourself or others in harms way..
I hope this series has been of some benefit as a simple reminder to all of you. May Allah reward you all with good in this life and the next. May He give you pious spouses and offspring. May He make you all of those that He is pleased with and enters into Him Mercy. Allahuma ameen.
