Which One Do You Prefer?


Read this BRUTALLY honest article! (well, at least this is how the writer described it herself ;)

Debunking The "Pretty Woman" Myth: How Romance Novels and Films Delude Youth


"..So which one is it going to be, ladies?

Do you want the delusive, fair-seeming mirage, or the sweet-tasting but down-played reality?

Do you want the euphoric but temporary pleasure of lust and amore, or the more subtle but permanent love and companionship that is independent of youth and physical attributes, yet spans decades?

Do you want the kind of guy who will give you the giddy but short-lived haramrelationship, or the one who will give you the most phenomenally rewarding and long-term, halal one?

Wake up, girl! Do you really want to be the hottie that catches the eye of guys driving by in Lotus Esprits, or do you want to be the preserved gem – whose earnest prayers can change the decree of your Benevolent Creator – to find you the man who will treat you with the romantic love, kindness and respect that you deserve?

O wannabe “Vivienne”, you deserve much more than $100 dollars a night in a fancy hotel penthouse! اَعُوذُ بِاللّه

Strive to become the jewel that will make you deserve a palace of pearls in the middle of Al-Firdaus - the best place to dwell in, with the man who loves you unconditionally, under the shade of the throne of the One Who loves you both, for eternity.."

"O Ever Living One.. O Eternal One, by Your mercy i call on You to set right all my affairs.. Do not place me in charge of my soul even for the blinking of an eye (a moment).."

Ukhty Alima: Love Unveiled

Assalamu'alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh!

Here's an eBook that i want all of my sisters to subscribe [click below]:

By Ukht Alima Ashfaq

And here's her page I am Alima (FB)


Hope the glimpses of this eBook will give you the main ideas on what's happening here!

1. What is the Mysterious thing called LOVE?
" You need to know what is love is, so you can differentiate between LOVE and LUST. Whether it's BEFORE marriage or AFTER. Once you know what it's not-YOU CAN FOCUS ON ACHIEVEING WHAT IT IS.."

2. Marriage in Islam?
"Once you understand the importance of MARRIAGE IN ISLAM, your desire to get married will increase, and you will want to DO IT CORRECTLY in order to attain happiness within this relationship If you're married, you will learn the IMPORTANCE OF MAINTAINING THIS RELATIONSHIP in the good times and bad, as it's something that is emphasized in the Shari'ah and Allah wants the best for you.."

My comments: And here, in this part it goes on correcting your misconceptions on marriage. Marriage is not to just SATISFY one's LUST as many people think, alright? Not to be perceived as a one-day picnic where people just have fun for quite some time and leave after the 'picnic moment' is over! It's more than that. It's all about RESPONSIBILITY-beautifully and happily carried upon the married couples if they do things right.. :)

3. Mekka and Madina
"Two blessed lands, yet very unique and different in their own ways. Once you learn the importance of the other and give both its due right-life will be at ease.... Your marriage will be at ease!"


My comments: Beautiful analogy! Instead of having "Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus", now we have "Men Are from Mekka, Women Are from Medina".. How sweet! MashaAllah..

4. I Want You.... But I Fear Allah!
"This life is a test and you have to protect yourself. once you understand the importance of protecting yourself from falling into haraam, you will actively seek to stay away from this and success will be yours.."

I'm telling you this once again: YOU MUST SUBSCRIBE to this eBook. EnshaAllah you will benefit a LOT from here.. :)

"It's your choice. The life you choose to lead is due to the choices you make. If you make them right with the intelligence then you won't go wrong. If you're hasty and you go into a road without a calculated decision then you're setting yourself up for trouble.."

pss: Recall on what a wise man said to me once, "Marriage is no longer significant to many men today because the world is so corrupted-that they have all those means to get what they want, at anytime, anywhere.. So why should they burden themselves with responsibilities (marriage)?"

Allah musta'an.
Wallahu alam..
