I’m torn, should I marry the one I love or the one who follows deen?
I'm an English woman who has recently reverted to Islam and I'm really happy but I'm torn. I was with my ex boyfriend for 6 years (before I reverted).
We broke up because I reverted to islam and because he wouldnt marry me (it would be wrong for me to stay with someone whom im not married to). He is muslim but he doesnt practice nor does he really want to, well not yet anyway he says hes not ready, I really love him and I would love to be his wife as he has a good heart even though he is lost in life.
But recently a friend of mine whom i have known for years asked me to marry him he is a God fearing man who wants what I want in life we are so similar and we have the same understanding however my ex has also asked me to marry him.
I'm torn, do I marry the man whom I really love or do I marry the man who wants the same as me in life, ie to live the islamic way. My ex says he wants to raise his children the islamic way but he says he is not ready to practice yet where as my friend wants what I want and that is to live according to the Quran and the prophets sunnah.
Do I follow my heart and marry the man I love and make du'a for him and pray Allah guides him or do I marry the man who is already guided.
I'm really torn please brothers and sisters please give me advise.
