Asalamualaikum. I am a muslim convert who grew up in a non-muslim family. I currently live with my father. My family aren’t very religious. They believe in God- is all I am aware of. So far, I’ve never had any major fall outs with them concerning my belief. (However that could be because I pray in private. And I don’t wear hijab- which is something I pray Allah will grant me the courage to do.) But recently I’ve been really fixated on my desire to get married. But as fast as I think of it, I have to push it away. I do this because I feel like there’s no way I am able to get married under my circumstances. Those circumstances being that technically I don’t have a proper wali, I don’t dress islamically, and I don’t have very close muslim acquaintances who I am comfortable bringing this topic up to for help.
One major reason I feel like getting married is so that I can become closer to Allah by gaining a higher level of deen than what I possess now without a spouse. Becoming a married muslim woman to a practicing muslim man would give me incentive to wear the hijab without thinking too much of what my family would think…
How do I go about doing this the islamic way? Because I feel like there is a wall between myself and marraige that will never go away if I don’t do something. I feel stuck…
