Asalamu alaikum wr wb brothers and sisters,
I'm doing okay subhanAllah... I may be getting married inshaAllah...
I really need some advice. A pious brother I met in March asked to marry me and I said yes. Alhamdulilah! I'm so happy with him and I want to be with him inshallah. We have a lot in common and we're compatable masha'Allah!!
But my mom found out and read my txt messages and went through my phone and has ordered me not to see him. SubhanAllah... she was so angry and started yelling at me and I was scared. I didn't say anything though. She kept asking me where I met him and who was he and why would I get married.
What should I do? I hate to anger my parents but I don't want to give up an opportunity to be happy and please Allah swt inshallah. I love my family, I really do. But I want to live my life as a Muslimah and if they can't accept that then I'll be on my way inshaAllah. I'm 20 years old, and I can choose what I want to do, but they are so oppressive and controlling... The worst part is that I've never stood up for my rights...
I'm trying to stay positive about everything, but I feel so overwhelmed and afraid of what my family will do if they find out I'm still talking to Iqra... subhanAllah... Allah knows best if we're right for each other, and I'd be so happy to be his wife inshaAllah. If not, then Alhamdulilah anyway.
I'll give more details later inshaAllah. Please keep me in your du'as inshaAllah.
Salaam alaikum wr bw!!
Jazakh Allahu Khair
