Halal love stories are beautiful but mine is my favourite. He saw me on YouTube and now we’re getting married. #TrueStory

Future halal bae asked me when I’m blogging again, so I started this post while waiting on my beautician this morning.

But I’m jumping the gun. Let me rewind. He came across my hifth completion video on YouTube in January last year and saw someone he knew in it, so he contacted her. She told him I’m engaged. He contacted her again in January this year, after my ambiguous Facebook post:

She again told him I’m engaged. What happened with that guy was the typical story of boy and and girl want to get married but the parents say no, finish your education first. I was expecting to get married in December last year, but then I was asked to wait, hence this Fb post. The bottom line is that it was not meant to be. Even though we both felt positive post-istikhaarah, Allah did not facilitate it, which was His way of saying no; I have better plans for you.

I saw my friend (who was in the YouTube vid) at a wedding on the 2nd of July this year, she asked me when’s “the big day”. I broke the news that I’m not getting married anymore. She was like, “why didn’t you send out a BC?” Inside joke: I send out WhatsApp broadcast messages all the time of news and events, but I didn’t send out this message. Anyway, she told me this guy’s been asking about me. I checked him out on Facebook, coz that’s the first thing you do.

I had never been more convinced that it was not going to work out, but I firmly believe in giving things a chance. And look what happened.

How did I know he was “the one”?

There were many instances for me. Firstly, I was happy with all of his answers to my questions.

Another instance I just knew was when he told me, “I don’t need you to make me happy. And I’m sure you feel the same way.” I thought to myself, “Yes! Now that’s my man!”

Another was when I did something he didn’t like, which was reason enough for him to call it off, but he overlooked it.

I could go on, but I won’t. He needs to still believe he’s the lucky one in the relationship.

Gosh I feel like this blog post is all over the show. I still need to post the list of questions we asked each other. It’s in my holiday plans to update my blog, so please be patient with me.

With best of du’as for your worldly and Hereafter success,
