Qinqin is Engaged!

Surprise! Surprise!

I still can't believe that my darling Syiqin is now someone's fiance. A couple of years ago when my friend, Rafidah, got married the rest of us had no clue when our turn would come. Syiqin was one of us who thought that we would be the last one on the list to get hitched. But finally, her jodoh came early than expected.

It's amazing how Allah works His wonders, isn't it? You may be feeling like you're not ready yet but suddenly someone knocks on your door to propose. This year I have witnessed many love stories – from someone who just broke up with her former boyfriend then met a sincere man to marry her, to someone who had been single for years then met her soon-to-be husband, to someone who is about to marry her longtime boyfriend. Each of them had to go through tough times before experiencing the happiest moment of their lives.

It brings me to a verse in the Qur'an in which Allah says,

For indeed, with hardship (will be) ease. Indeed, with hardship (will be) ease.
Surah Al-Insyirah 5-6

I'm so happy for Syiqin. She has finally found the man of her dreams! One night we had a group conversation talking about how fast time brought us to this day. We used to talk about puppy love but now – now we talk about marriage and children. I still can't believe it. I wonder what would it be like when we turn 30?

I'm glad to be a part of this friendship. To collect precious memories together is a privilege. One year spent with these girls in high school was filled with joy and excitement. And I can't wait to collect more memories with them, insha'Allah.

For us who are still waiting for our big day to come, I pray that may Allah grant us a pious, loving and caring spouse. May He ease everything for us.

To my beautiful Syiqin,
May happiness and love stick with you until the end of time. We love you!
