Your spouse was destined for you even before this universe was created. Your soul has waited since then to reunite with its soulmate, and you will be united when Allaah has planned. And He has the most beautiful of plans. You imagine growing old with your love. I imagine jannah with mine. Its sweetness is far greater than the bitterness of having to be patient. Have faith in Allaah. He’s been saving your love for you - since before He created the world we know. And after He reunites you with your love in this world, may He reunite you in jannah, ameen.
What is marriage but the discovery of a best friend, companion, soul mate in the one who is now your family? What is marriage but pillow-fights, and sleeping in, and teasing, and arguing, and telepathically communicating, and often misunderstanding, but always forgiving and constantly cherishing every laugh, every tear? What is marriage but the discovery of your guide to jannah, and may you be their guide. Ameen. May your closeness bring you closer to Him, azza wa jal. May your heart find contentment and your soul find peace. Ameen. What is marriage, but a journey… With your best friend… A journey to jannah. And what a beautiful destination that is.
