I have decided to narrate some of the most inspiring love stories that no Tristan and Isolde or Romeo and Juliet can match in equality nor surpass, yes, the love stories of the greatest people that ever walked upon the earth, the Sahabah Radiyallahu Anhum.
When we hear them, we always think of their bravery, their faith, their good character, so much of beauty in them and so now, I want to increase that inspiration we get from them by sharing their soft side, their hearts towards their spouses.
I think its time for us to give a fresh way of inspiring our youth, with a sprinkle of halal love stories.
I personally believe that with the help of increasing the awareness by telling our sisters, or our brothers or our children about the love stories of the Sahabah Radiyallahu Anhum would actually help them change their perspective in “love” and I mean for a spouse, we have to really let them understand why there is no girlfriend-boyfriend concept in Islam, and with these stories I believe it will make them understand it in a way that we penetrate not their minds but their hearts by inspiring them.
I believe we have to deliver the reality of the concept of marriage in islam, through a way of how these novel writers, movie directors do, that from these “dying for the one you love, going to romantic places when you’re not even married to him or her” we present the “dying is only for Allah, we can only go to romantic places when we are halal certified couple” that through these hearts will not be broken from an illusion made by desire and lust.
In sha Allah I will be sharing one “long excerpt” every week.
And we pray Allah Azza Wa Jall helps us reach the hearts of our youth, the way these novel writers and movie writers did with them.
