"Is this playing , he is clearly not ready for marriage because he doesn’t have the means yet hence he should fast so Allah can provide for him so as to complete half of his Deen and be able to take care of his family."


"Even rent, a lot of questions to ask here. Most of the items are material things that can wait.
"Why not go ahead and pay her bride price let her remain with her parents."

@NMallami said:

"Pls don't be too eager to judge people, you don't know what he did and you also don't know how far he came to this point all alone, so if you think you can help him, just do it and you feel you can't just skip the comment section or just wish him a good luck."
