Assalamwalikum dear kind sister, My question is related to marriage. I'm 19 and i live in a muslim country, a few months back i started the hijab and the abaya Allhamdulilah. I have recently received a proposal from America. The guy is a practising muslim and he respects my doing the hijab, i havent met him in person yet as he will be coming here in a month inshAllah i spoke to him on email just once. My worry is moving to America, living there with the hijab and abaya i think it'll be really hard not just that but following my deen in a non muslim country, i dont want any hinderence in my deen and inshAllah i also plan on doing the niqab in the future. Is it easy to live in a nonmuslim country? my other worry is living in a joint family considering the brother in law is also a na-mahram, I belong to a broken family my parents recently got divorced and ive never understood marriage. I do have a good feeling about this proposal in my heart but Allah The Almighty knows best. Jazakillah Khairun for your time and may Allah tallah bless you with the best of both worlds,Aameen :)
waiting for your reply.
lots of love, remember me in your duas. striving Muslimah.
