I was a bit reluctant to tell the story of my transition but I wish my story can be an inspiration to people, Insyallah.
In January 2013, I was at the lowest bottom of my life.. 5 years of relationship ended with no closure. I was devastated and crying for months. I was drowning in my own negative thoughts and blaming myself for the break up. I used to wonder why I had my heart broken so many times and what can I do to mend my broken heart. Sleepless nights continues but eventually, Allah made me realized that it was caused by the hearts that I had broken before and the sins that I had committed all these years.
I began to accept the fact that everything happens for a reason and only Allah knows it. I understand that Allah has a better plan for me and maybe we are not meant to be after all.
I poured my heart out to Allah and was very ashamed with the things that I have done in the past. I forgotten about HIM during my happy days but now asking for HIS forgiveness when I hit the rock bottom.
I started to wear hijab in somewhere around Feb or March and Alhamdulillah, I felt so peaceful and serene. I prayed and prayed that I can meet someone that can make me want to be a better person. In May, my prayer was finally answered and God has sent me this wonderful man who uses "When" instead of "If" when talking about his future and how I fit in his plans.
We only met 3 times before he came to see my parents and asked for their permission to bring me to see his family. 3 months after the meeting, his family came "merisik" and we will be engaged in one month time. I have full trust in Allah and if he is my door to Jannah, I accept it with an open heart.
Alhamdulillah, Alhamdulillah.. :)
