“Nikah (marriage) is my Sunna. He who shuns my Sunna is not of me.”
- The Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him)
Ever seen a coin? It has two sides, and that’s the only thing that makes it complete. The only thing that gives it value. If you were to go to a shop, and pay with a single sided coin the shopkeeper would reject it would he not? What’s a tail without head?
Similarly, what is our future without our past? The present is made up of the past. The future will be made of the present. Our past experience, mistakes, and decisions made us who we are today. Everything we learn, experience, and decide today will make us who we are tomorrow, will it not? And what about our goods and our bads? Our strengths and our weakness. One compliments the other, and in the bigger picture they all complete us as a whole.
It amazes me how Allah (swt) has created this world. Everything has a reason, a purpose and one thing appreciates the other. The best part of it all is that regardless of if we have a past to compliment the future, a good side with the bad, we are still incomplete until we find our second half. The soul mate. A partner that accepts our goods and our bads. Our past and our future. Our Strengths and our weaknesses, and loves us for who we are. And of course…complete the Big picture at the end. ;]
This one’s for you. Happy Wedding anniversary.
