Are the stars out tonight?

"It'll happen when you least expect it."

"When you meet the right person, you'll know."

Two of the eyeroll-inducing cliches most frequently emitted by the well-meaning and happily married.

But what are cliches except truth wrapped in overfamiliar phases.

I wasn't expecting it, then I met him and I knew.

That was in September and we got married last month, Alhamdulilah.

We sat side by side on the floor of the mosque. Recited our vows. The simple words that change everything. What was written, cannot be erased.
The air was heavy with the weight of the future. In this life and the next.

mabrook Safiya, I had a feeling that it must be something like that.

Your words were very touching "The simple words that change everything. What was written, cannot be erased.
The air was heavy with the weight of the future. In this life and the next. "

You are really talented and mashaaAllah your short words and sentencesare are always very expressive.

Barak Allah lakoma waa barak 3laykom waa gama3 baynakom fee khair ISA. (It is an arabic duaa that the prophet (PBUH) used to say for married couples. May God bless you both.

Dear friend, I am so, so, so happy for you!!! I understand these cliches, given that I'm living them myself. :)

Where did you meet? What was your wedding food? Will you have a honeymoon? Where will you live?

Forgive my questions, this is really exciting!

Best wishes for both of you. :)
