A Little Bit About Me
I hope you are well and in good health
My name is Esteban. I know it doesn’t sound very muslim so I guess some details would be welcomed: I’m a French student and al hamdulilah I converted to islam 6 years ago after a long spiritual journey.
I’ve just started a PhD on cancer research in London. Before that I did a MSc in computational biology and a engineer degree in computer science. I am passionate and ambitious about my work and dream of making the world better.
I don’t really know how to describe myself but I can say that I am sometimes compared to a unicorn: positive, innocent, gentle, good listener, supportive, easy going but also responsible. I also tend to be a bit shy at first, much less after I know the person better.
Umar ibn Al-Khattab said “A man should be like a child with his wife, but if she needs him, he should act like a man.” and this is what I would try to live by.
Apparently I’m funny, although it’s not always on purpose, I just have a weird mind :)
Hobbies include: reading, sports (mostly gym), watching movies/series/documentaries, spending time with friends, long walks in nature.
Islam is very important to me. I’ve been given the chance to see it from the outside, which is a blessing. I pray 5 times a day, perform my religious duties and try my best to maximise my good deeds while minimising my sins. I’m also eager to learn more about islam, so I regularly read, listen to conferences,… I recently started to learn arabic and tajweed.
What I Am Looking For
I think that choosing a life partner is different than choosing a new TV, therefore I won’t go with the typical shopping list of criteria and I’ll try to be a bit more poetic.
My model of a good relationship would be the one between our Prophet sws and Khadija. Despite their differences, they sticked together in the worst and best times, and had a common goal that they wanted to accomplish together. In addition they both had the most excellent characters.
Therefore I believe the most important things are how we can connect to each other and what objectives we can set together on this long journey. I would like a wife who would help me become a better person and would be a good model for our kids, and the same would apply to me.
Hence, I would like to marry somebody religious and educated, modest and with a good character as I think it would be easier to connect.
If you think there can be compatibility, feel free to drop a message ;)
In any case, may Allah give us all a good and virtuous spouse
