Pearl of Wisdom

to a man who asked, 'Do you consider all these creatures as people?' said, 'Exclude from among them those who do not brush their teeth, sitting cross-legged in a narrow place, one who interferes in matters that do not concern him, debates about that which he has no knowledge, one who acts sick without an illness, one who falls apart without a calamity, one who opposes his friends in matters of truth that they have agreed upon, a proud person who is proud of his forefathers but he is devoid of their good deeds, so he is like a heath peeling off its bark bit by bit until it reaches its core, and he is like Allah's verse: They are like cattle; rather they are more astray.'

Imam Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sadiq [as]
al-Khisal, p. 409, no. 9

200 marriage question - please help Salaam alaikum

I am a Shia girl of the age of 19 and very confused. I have always been against love and I considered my friends who were/are in relationships as fools lol.

Islam is my life. I have never thought of falling in love and never had feelings for a man so far. I was planning to complete my education (1st year of uni), get a job etc etc and then consider love and marriage whenever I am 'ready'.

However, I have this friend and know him for years. He recently told me he had feelings for me and he respects me. Plus he is Sunni, he knows I am Shia and he knows and accepts it. He admires Maula Ali (as) and the descendents of the prophet. He basically has everything I ever wanted in a man.

I realised I have feelings as well but I don't know what to do. I don't want this to lead to haram actions..

I feel so bad during praying and so guilty I don't know what to do.

My apologies if I wrote too much but I am really desperate. What shoud I do? I am in love.. Is it allowed as far as we don't touch and any other haram actions?

Many thanks in advance for your help.

Kind regards
