memonite replied to your post: I’m a student of knowledge as well. What do you mean by “prepare yourself”? wouldn’t it make sense to prepare if you were already obtaining knowledge while in the states? and why Al-Azhar? Why not Madinah University? Isn’t it the best? Would you go to Al-Azhar alone or with your wife (after getting married)?

Why wouldn’t you want to obtain knowledge from Madinah? While the school is funded by the Government, it’s not run by them

Yes it is. If anyone knows Saudi Arabia, it’s me.

The entire clerical opinions that come from Saudi Arabia are rooted in a collective groupthink that does not allow anyone to think outside the box in many realms that can and are a threat to the Saudi Regime. 

Every Arab country STRICTLY enforces a very restrictive curriculum in all its institutions that are more or less just a sample of True Islamic Scholarship.

The only place you want to learn in terms of Islamic knowledge is from a country where its men are truly free to teach without fearing for their lives. 

You can’t even give a Khutbah in Saudi Arabia without the Minister issuing it; I’m sure nothing in Al Madinah University goes under the nose of Al Saud’s approval.

My dearest Moment, from an early age I knew I was a romantic. It began when I was 6 years of age. Ms Pizzano. She was my first grade teacher. She was of Italian descent. There was just something about her. Maybe it was the way she smiled at me when I raised my hand to answer a question, or maybe it was because of her height. I just knew, I wanted to spend the rest of my life with her (or at least till the 5th grade). Unfortunately, my dreams and hopes were shattered when she told us she was set

Continued: To marry her boyfriend of 3 years. I experienced heartbreak at an early age. However, that did not deter me. As much as I loved Ms Pizzano, I also realized I not only deserved someone better, but also someone closer to my age. And with that, I set out on life’s greatest journey, to find true love

AWWWWWWWWWWW this is so cute!
Ms. Pizzano is probably as old as a dry cannoli  now and you have  yet to find your beautiful lady. You will, because you are an awesome one.
