Fear of loneliness shouldn't be a reason to get married. Mutual values and same beliefs and visions, admiration and respect for each other and love should be the only reasons to say "I do". Marriage is a beautiful thing, but to be beautiful in practice and not just in theory, both partners need to give… Continue reading Just a thought
My reaction to https://www.nytimes.com/2017/09/12/style/how-often-should-we-be-having-sex.html?smid=fb-nytimes&smtyp=cur&smvar=q3eg Human sexuality is a very complex thing and something we are the most vulnerable about.

Eid Al Adha is near. In just a few days. A feast of sacrifice, remembering Prophet Ibrahim who was willing to sacrifice his son, Ismael, after dreaming that he had received a message from Allah to do so.

It's been one of those days when strange feelings overwhelm me. I feel pain even though nothing really hurts me nor I lost someone precious to me... But, pain is there.
