Mariam & Abdul
(08 November 2004)
After remaining widower for exact three years, i realised seriously to have a companion, to share my lonliness, hence started searching few websites.
shaadi.com was the most effective sites, as, it has a wide range of candidates of all ages and from all the continants around the world.
out of around 200 contacts, 8 or 10, came of my choice, as being in the age group of 66 yrs. i wanted the life partner of over 50 yrs. of age, having no children liabilities, so it took a bit long, but ultimately, MARIAM CASSIM (ID CENEMA), from south africa, working in king faisal hospital, saudi arabia, responded, and being on the mutual requirment, we decided to meet,
a visit to riad, followed by a visit to dammam, helped us to understand each other, hence planned to get married on 30th sep.2004.
nikah ceremony was solemnised in jeddah, at the residance of south african consulate general, who very graciously made arrangements of the wedding at his residance, the nikah was performed at a colourful but simple ceremony by imam pandey from south africa.
thus a south african unmarried lady of 54 yrs., married to a pakistani man of 66.
two weeks after wedding were spent in the holy places of mecca and madina, giving us enough time and oppertunities, not only to understand each other, but to pay our shukrana, to allah sobhana o taala, for uniting two people of entirely different culture , having no barrier at all, on the marital life.
thanks and gratitude goes to shaadi.com team, as a whole for creating such a wonderful site, helping people of this global village to unite.
