Assalamualaikum Cinta

I really admire couples who give off an aura of calmness and purity during their ceremony. Especially if the bride is sweet and demure, while the groom stands tall and ready to uphold the pillars of marriage in Islam. As I was witnessing the solemnisation of my cousin, Hafiz, an undergraduate of Al-Azhar University in Cairo, and his blushing bride, Izyan, both alumnus of Madrasah Aljuneid and Madrasah Al-Arabiah Al-Islamiah respectively, I couldn’t help but realise how beautiful and long-lasting a marriage could be if it was executed the Islamic way.

“And of His signs is that He created for you from yourselves mates that you may find tranquillity in them; and He placed between you affection and mercy. Indeed in that are signs for a people who give thought.” – Surah Ar-Rum, 30:21.

Here are some stills from their wedding montage video that will make you melt at their sweetness ( I know I did… :)) :

Very “Aku Terima Nikahnya” / “7 Petala Cinta” worthy scenes!

And I love how the videographer added beautiful quotes from the Quran in between pictures like this:

Such a beautiful couple, really. Congrats and welcome to the family, Izyan! The full video montage can be viewed below:


Let us all prepare ourselves to be the best muslimah we can, so that when the time comes, we are ready to stand by our husband’s side and accompany him on the right path, because as how our Prophet s.a.w. said, “When a man marries, he has fulfilled half of his religion, so let him fear Allah s.w.t in the remaining half.” – Al-Bayhaqi.
