There are several girls in our community who are single and finding the right spouse for themselves. Many times, the challenges of finding a good spouse can lead to girls failing to use their time productively before they get married.
While getting married is a big milestone in everyone’s life ,but it should not be our only focus. Our first priority should always be satisfying Allah (SWT) by worshiping Him. In this article we are sharing advises for you, which will help you maximize your free time before marriage:
Serve Your Parents As Much As You Can
Many women who have greater family responsibilities usually complain that they are not able to help their parents after marriage. We know there are several hadiths about the benefits of serving parents as Holy prophet PBUH said:
“Shall I inform you of the biggest of the great sins?” They said, “Yes, O Allah’s Apostle!” He said, “To join partners in worship with Allah, and to be undutiful to one’s parents.”
We should find opportunities to give our parents much needed time, especially if they are very elder and need more care and attention. We should always find time to fulfill our duties towards them.
Develop New Skill
Many girls feel that they do not get the opportunity or time to develop new skills after marriage. They do not have enough time to invest in their own talents and passions.
