Assalamualaikum everyone. May Allah bless you all.
We live in a very sexualy desensitised world, which really makes remaining steadfast a difficult task for our youth especially.
A major solution to this catastrophe is marriage…
Another test for our youth today is the cross pollination of values due to media globalisation.
As a result of this; we find our youth failing with marriage as the implementation of different cultures in their mindsets has led to a more fussier disposition on their part, and as such, the compatibility arena, which is a condition for the continuance of the marriage, has become a much smaller domain to work with and within.
Today little things as a girl/boy
Being a few years older/younger,
Being a few inches shorter/taller,
Having a complexion that is slightly lighter/darker,
Having a job that pays slightly less than expected, or a profession aside of being a doctor, lawyer, accountant or engineer,
Having a weight listing slightly under/over,
Having an accent of a particular genre,
Having a nationality of a particular class,
Etc etc etc,
Are all grounds for a marriage prospect being a non-starter/ consideration…
