"• Today’s Key for a better way of Marriage is ” You complete me ”
I’ll be honest. There are some things about husbands do that really annoys wives and vice versa . For example, my husband is so tight with money he squeaks when he walks. That’s why I call him, “Squeaky.” He’s also a talker. That’s not all. We have different views on cleaning, driving, parenting, and well, just about everything.
Sometimes I want to scream because of our differences. Others times I’ve wondered, “Did I marry Mr. Right or Mr. Wrong?”
I wonder if you’re shaking your head in agreement because you’ve noticed the differences between you and your spouse as well.
Over the next few post, I’ll cover the four commitments of marriage found in Holy Quran. Believe it or not but there is a blue print to marriage designed by Allah. Marriage is His idea. Therefore, by following His instructions we can’t miss.
• Commitment One: Receive Your Spouse
No other living creature was suitable for Adam because Allah created Hawaa (a.s) from the rib of Adam, and brought her to him. Are you now getting what I am trying to say?! Hopefully Yes.
This truth was eye opening for me.
Allah made for Adam (a.s) exactly what he needed. The same is true for me. Allah gave me a spouse who, by his divine design, is suitable for me. To think other wise is to disagree with Allah’s provision for me.
Let’s face it. I’ve got gaps. He’s got gaps. Together we fill the gaps. Those things that aggravate me now once attracted me to my spouse. For example, I was drawn to the outgoing personality of my spouse because I was painfully shy. I never could keep my finances in order, but my spouse is great at it. He may be “squeaky” but I now feel safe instead of stressed. You could go as far to say through our differences we complete one another. His strengths make me stronger and visa versa.
So, how do I deal with those differences when they annoy me? I remember that my spouse is gift from Allah. He is Allah’s perfect provision for me. I must receive him as a gift by not focusing on his faults (or what irritate me) but the fact that his differences are filling in what I lack. When I start to become irritated, it’s not because my husband is doing anything on purpose. He’s simply being who Allah made him to be—a suitable partner for me. His differences are to better me as a person and us as a couple.
To get to this point in my marriage, I had to remind myself each and every day to receive my husband as Adam (a.s) received Hawaa (a.s) –as a gift. I must unconditionally accept his good habits and his bad habits. I must look beyond him to the Unique God who knows what He is doing–and trust He knows best. Receiving your mate is more than reciting it on your Marriage day. It requires an attitude of continual acceptance throughout your marriage with faith in Allah.
To conclude: You complete each other through your unique differences and weakness. In what ways have your differences completed each other? Make a list."

Tom Hurndall was a peace activist and an aspiring photojournalist. His photographs, alongside his journals, bear witness to the often terrible, sometimes uplifting, events he saw and experienced while living among families in Iraq, in a refugee camp in Jordan, and in the Gaza Strip. It was there on 11 April 2003 that he was shot in the head by an Israeli soldier while attempting to rescue a child who had been pinned down by gunfire. He died nine months later in hospital in London.RIP

I don’t understand Americas relationship with, & seemingly limitless funding to Israel- considering what Israel is doing to the Palestinians

A woman reaches under a block from the apartheid wall trying to hold the hand of her mother on the other side. Many families have become segregated after the Israeli occupation regime completed the construction of the wall which runs through Palestinian lands. This is just one of thousands of cases.

wethefishermen asked: There is a wonderful place called heaven and there is a horrible place called hell. Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life, not just a story I tell. There is eternal justice for the choices that we make. Repent and put your faith in Jesus for heaven's sake. We are sinners. We are guilty of our crime. The Son of God died on a cross to take our punishment and pay our fine. I tell you this because I love you and because it is true. Just know that this is all because I care about you.

I see what you did there,
You made it all rhyme
So I’d like to respond,
But I have little time…

I worship the Lord,
and say “He is One”
To whom we will return,
Once our time is done.

I also believe in Jesus,
Whom Peace Be Upon,
Though not like you do,
He is not God’s Son.

I do not believe for a second,
that he was punished for our crimes,
As Islam teaches about sins..
Whats your is yours.. and whats mine is mine…

Its God that we need to repent to,
His mercy is ever so Great,
Jesus was a muslim,
For that there is no debate.

So, I suggest you study islam,
and learn of its beauty,
that believing in the Gospels,
Is also every Muslims’ duty…

I thank you for your message,
But let me be clear,
I love Jesus more than you,
But its only God that I fear.
