I have known someone for just about ten years now and have known I’ve always wanted to marry him, however I am getting older and nothing seems to be changing and I do wish to get get married now and have for some time. Perhaps there is some prayer you can recommend? It’s difficult, as he says he wants to wait for his brother and sister to get married first. However this may take a long time and I don’t see why it should stop me and him after all these years. Apart from that there are no issues. I feel it is now the age where I need that support of a husband and as a girl who is getting older it is worrying. I’m finding it emotionally difficult.
Tell him you will give him until the new Islamic year to marry you and otherwise you will move on, as 10 years is way beyond a reasonable time to make up his mind. Meantime recite Ya Fattah 100 times daily.
