My name is Ayah and I met my husband Rasheed on Muzz. He has 4 children and I have 3. He is a highway crew chief for the city and I'm the assistant director of a childcare center. We actually grew up in the same neighborhood just blocks from one another, but we'd never seen each other before I found him on Muzz.
I came across his profile and normally I would automatically pass on the ones with the blurred photos but I read his and loved what he had written.
When we matched and I saw his photos. I thought he was attractive and after exchanging a few messages we learned that we shared the same values, priorities, and interests.
We began to text one another, which soon led to us talking on the phone. We talked on the phone daily for the next 4 months. We spoke very candidly and got to know one another thoroughly. I was amazed how we could talk for hours upon hours. Sometimes it seemed like we'd be talking all day.
I inquired about Rasheed and everyone I talked to spoke very highly of him and confirmed what I could already see - that he was a great father, hard-working, and someone who placed the utmost importance on the deen and his relationship with Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala.
Finally, after talking for 4 months, we agreed to meet. We met for lunch with his best friend and his sister, and once I met him in person I was sure I wanted to marry him.
We continued meeting up every weekend while planning our nikkah, walimah, and future. We would go to the masjid, breakfast, lunch and the Sixers games. We'd take the kids to the playground and for pizza. I loved spending time with him and couldn't wait to become his wife!
We got married this past Ramadan and it was wonderful. He has a huge family and I have a small one so most of the people there were from his side but they embraced me and my kids immediately and made us feel welcome.
We had an amazing first Ramadan and Eid together. I love our big blended family and I'm so happy I found him on Muzz! JazakumAllahu khair!
