Are you a Muslim Single and Ready to Mingle

Okay, first of all mingling in the Western sense is wrong in Islam. In the Islamic perspective, free mixing in wrong and I'm not advocating it. I'm sure we are all guilty of it even though we know it's wrong. I just wrote the title to catch your attention and if you're reading this then it worked. However, it's ok to talk to the opposite gender if you have good intentions but you should lower your gaze, especially Muslim brothers. As in Muslim brothers should not be looking at the sister below her neck. Remember brothers, the girl's eyes are above her chest, not on them. And when the sister walks away your eyes have no excuse of looking at their tushi.

Single Muslims of the opposite genders should talk to each other, because if they don't then how do you expect to find your potential spouse. Usually in universities is the best place to meet many people and many functions such as weddings, MSA gatherings, dinner parties, etc.
So you're single and waiting for that Sapno Ki Rani (dream girl) or your prince charming.  So here is the problem here, you are "waiting". Why are you waiting, I hope you are not sitting around because you are probably passing a lot of potentials by. You probably said no to a potential without realizing what you've done, but Allah (SWT) will help you find that person again if you two and your potential are meant to be. Don't be very closed up, go to functions and make yourself known. Tell your social circle that you are looking and the word will spread.

Have you made immense amount of dua to Allah? When you make dua, you have the right to make any dua you want, hence to marry anyone you want. But I strongly recommend you should make a dua to grant you what is good and a person who is good, and Allah only knows what's in the heart of the person you are interested in. Make your dua during fajr time and of course in Tahajjud prayer when Allah (SWT) is closest to Earth.

Here is a dua for guys to consider:
Rabbi innee lima anzalta ilayya min khayrin faqeerun

The translation reads "My Lord! truly, I am in need of whatever good that You bestow on me!"

For the Muslim sisters recite Surah Ad-Duha(93).


Waallayli itha saja
Ma waddaAAaka rabbuka wama qala
Walalakhiratu khayrun laka mina aloola
Walasawfa yuAAteeka rabbuka fatarda
Alam yajidka yateeman faawa
Wawajadaka dallan fahada
Wawajadaka AAailan faaghna
Faamma alyateema fala taqhar
Waamma alssaila fala tanhar
Waamma biniAAmati rabbika fahaddith
The translations reads:
By the Glorious Morning Light,
And by the Night when it is still,-
Thy Guardian-Lord hath not forsaken thee, nor is He displeased.
And verily the Hereafter will be better for thee than the present.
And soon will thy Guardian-Lord give thee (that wherewith) thou shalt be well-pleased.
Did He not find thee an orphan and give thee shelter (and care)?
And He found thee wandering, and He gave thee guidance.
And He found thee in need, and made thee independent.
Therefore, treat not the orphan with harshness,
Nor repulse the petitioner (unheard);
But the bounty of the Lord - rehearse and proclaim!
