The expectation of receiving a response that is congenial to behavior against the spirit of Islam is unreasonable. Based upon my observance of the advice provided in this forum you will receive 90% compassion and understanding when advice is offered.
3:159 (Y. Ali)
It is part of the Mercy of Allah that thou dost deal gently with them Were thou severe or harsh-hearted, they would have broken away from about thee: so pass over (their faults), and ask for (Allah's) forgiveness for them; and consult them in affairs (of moment). Then, when thou hast taken a decision put thy trust in Allah. For Allah loves those who put their trust (in Him).
It is easier for someone to be more critical of someone they don't know and especially when the interaction isn't personal. Always accept the advice that applies and that which doesn't store it for when it does if based on Islam and not opinion.
There is no one in this forum that is any better than anyone in reality. The best among us are the most righteous. The most righteous are never condescending or self-righteous.
2:177 (Y. Ali)
It is not righteousness that ye turn your faces Towards east or West; but it is righteousness- to believe in Allah and the Last Day, and the Angels, and the Book, and the Messengers; to spend of your substance, out of love for Him, for your kin, for orphans, for the needy, for the wayfarer, for those who ask, and for the ransom of slaves; to be steadfast in prayer, and practice regular charity; to fulfill the contracts which ye have made; and to be firm and patient, in pain (or suffering) and adversity, and throughout all periods of panic. Such are the people of truth, the Allah.fearing.
I had a question for those providing love advice. When a Muslim loves a person you are not married or wasn't a relative that you knew before getting married how were you able to interact and fall in love?
