My self-summary
Greetings to all!

I am modest, simple, sweet, playful, considerate, and even downright silly at times. I'm sorry, it's just the kid in me that refuses to grow up and just might be the part that keeps me so youthful. Lol :-) I have traveled around the world. I've climbed the Great Wall in China, saw the Forbidden City, participated in the Peach Blossom festival in Chengdu, been on safari in Kenya, relaxed on the coast of Mombasa, visited the gardens festivals of Bangalore, India and saw the beautiful hill stations near Chennai. I've been to Germany, France, and Amsterdam. I HAVE NEVER BEEN IN THE MILITARY. I have simply been blessed to see different places and it certainly humbles you and makes its seem foolish to have ever complained about where you live.

My intentions for joining this site were to increase my options of finding a potential Muslim mate but it's funny how we may plan but G-d plans best! It would appear that there are many Non-Muslim men here that are more cordial and respectful on this site then my own counterparts. Now how could this be?! If you are a Muslim, then I expect to be greeted as such, no exceptions!

Getting down to the nitty gritty! This is where the rubber meets the road.

DISCLAIMER: The paragraph below will serve primarily as a filter. So don't take offense if you do not fit the bill. As I am quite sure that there will even be many Muslim man that will not be likely candidates either, sadly...

I am a firm believer in modestly as I do cover, although this picture does not reflect this. Check me out under the name Nina on Islamicmarriages.com. I know that it's not just about your physical characteristics, it's also about your Niya (intentions). ;-).

Before you go judging a book by its cover. I pray five times a day. Give Zakat, I'm active in my community, and I'm also making my intentions to make Hajj. I know my Deen is tight. Please also be aware that I am an intelligent woman, born Muslim, not just by title, but sincerely in my heart. The Qur'an and Sunnah is my guide and I know that this way of life has already guaranteed my rights. If your not threatened by a woman who knows her Deen, then you may proceed.

Anyway I have no doubt that the most high will help me complete my Deen by sending someone sweet yet simple my way. Insha' Allah. I know what I want and I will not compromise my principals for a handsome face. I wish everyone the best in finding their mate. :)
What I’m doing with my life
Lately I've been doing a lot of reflecting...soul searching... if you will. I've had the opportunity to do great things in my life and I'm eternally grateful for these experiences.

I will say that almost every milestone in my life pales in comparison to having that person that loves you and will stick by your side unconditionally. Being alone sucks and I'm longing to complete the circle by finding my mate.

I would prefer someone who's not judgmental, or is caught up on physical appearances, mature, and young at heart. Beauty fades over time so a great looking inside (intelligent heart) is priority. A little adventure wouldn't hurt and you don't have to travel far to find it. Let's make the best out of this brief life so that we can look forward to eternal happiness in the next, if G-d wills! ;-)
I’m really good at
making other's feel comfortable. Laughter is what keeps us youthful, so it's okay to laugh and be thankful that it does't cost a thing for that! I know that we all crave attention as much as we like our space. Finding the balance is key because everyone is different. I also love to make select dishes because I know the way to man's heart. Did I mention that I also make a mean banana pudding that will have you licking you fingers and smacking Ummie at the same time?! I kid, I kid! Please do not contact me criticizing me about that statement. I love my Mother very much...its just a joke, I would never condone the slapping of anyone's mother! ;-)
The first things people usually notice about me
I could come off as being reserved or even shy at first however, when you get to know me, you'll see that I am anything but that. I like to make others laugh. When was the last time you smiled at someone...it just might lift their spirits or even make their day. After all it takes only a dozen facial muscles to smile while it takes over 40 to frown.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like spiritual books such as the intelligent heart & the pure heart, In the footsteps of the Prophet as well as a host of other spiritually enlightening books. On the more playful side I like Eat-Pray-Love, the time traveler's wife, motivational books, self improvement books, and books on healthy eating. As far as movies go I like all kinds, even documentaries. I am big fan of sketch comedy and comedians like Dave Chappelle and Russell Peters. Music is an universal language so I like good music of all walks. Food; some American, Indian, Mediterranean, thai, Ethiopian/Somalian, Vegetarian, raw foods, and many more. I love all types of food and I'm open to new food experiences.
Six things I could never do without
A good book.
Red vines.
My ipod
My warm Extra King size waterbed :-)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Things that effect humanity. There is not enough love to go around. Whether we want to acknowledge it or not, we are all connected as one human race, so everyone is effected. The proof of this is when tragedy strikes, you see people of all races pulling together to help one another and help sometimes comes from the places least expected. Don't let hate or fear keep you from a potential opportunity to learn something new.
On a typical Friday night I am
This is a special worship day. So the following would kinda apply to more of the weekend. I like to hang out with family or friends. I like to also strum my guitar, blog, have intellectual conversation. Ahhh the possibilities are endless... I really can't wait to combine my activities with what my mate would like to do. I live alone so I was thinking of taking up Muay Thai, that way, I'd stay in great shape and kick A$$ if needed. ;-) I can be super competitive so I love games. Whether its Xbox, boardgames, basketball, or just kickin' it, I'm sure to enjoy myself.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can sometimes be very critical ( a virgo trait) especially of myself but I am learning to let go and let live. Life is too short to ponder about things that are outside of my control. Besides, the One who created all things is the best planner so why should I fear anything besides him. I, by any means, do not wish to give off the impression that I am free of flaws. I am a work in progress. I consider myself a student for life. Therefore, I will seek and try to learn to live on purpose. The mercy is that many prolems do have solutions however, all will not be solved in an instant so patience is necessary. It is a vertue, not easily acquired...unfortunately.
You should message me if
you've made it through this book I wrote, not a racist, cultured or well traveled, if you guard your private parts as I do keep my goodies wrapped safely and out of reach. ;-) If your not suffering from any major cultural hang ups. If your intelligent without being arrogant. If your open minded, considerate and will always put G-D first. Also, if you take marriage seriously. If you love technology, love gadgets, but also knows when to shut them off to give me attention when needed!. ;-)
