Update to my travel to South Africa, which I have had to change. I will be in South Africa for approximately 6 weeks for the law program starting in July , but I have already decided to stay awhile and explore the legendary culture and beauty of South Africa. I have lived both in Europe and The Muslim world, including living in Egypt for two years. I'm an American trained and educated attorney, with experience in criminal law, human rights,women's rights& international law. (I understand if you don't have a picture on your profile, however please do NOT contact me if you are NEVER intending to share a photo, I believe in equality in all things.) I believe we need to work on unity, peace, reconciliation and reform (Tajdid) among Muslims and stop fighting and harming one another and others. I am vegetarian, definitely a huge believer in eating to live,& fitness. I enjoy yoga, Pilates & martial arts. Intelligence, intellectualism, assertiveness&compassion are qualities I seek.The key to a successful relationship is communication,mutual respect,honesty,integrity &helping one another to reach and attain goals & ambitions.😊 I know most people don't read profiles,they just look at the pictures😊. But, I have included some quotes which inspire me on a daily basis.For those who do read profiles,who are feeling sad,or who are in pain,or in need of love,a hug, a smile,I pray the following words warm your heart,soothe your soul and offer these things from my heart,to yours,in the name of Allah.💗 🌹🌹🌹 "Prayer is the weapon of The Believers"- Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) “I searched for God in the Synagogue, and I didn't find Him, and then in the Church, and I didn't find Him, and then in the Mosque and I didn't find Him, and then in the Temples and Halls, and I didn't find Him. Then I searched for God in my heart, and there, is where I found Him." From the Sufi Master Rûmî "Out beyond ideas of right doing and wrongdoing, there is a field, I'll meet you there." From Rûmî "Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness,and many of our people need it solely on these accounts." Mark Twain "That in our darkest hours, an hour when you think you should give up,because the forces arrayed against you are so mighty, so powerful,& they look as though they have totally overwhelmed you,it is in THAT hour that your greatest opportunity for triumph is in you.And it is in that hour that most people give up the struggle and they never come to a victory over the forces that are now apparently overwhelming them." Hon. Min. Louis Farrakhan (From "Closing the Gap") "My advice to you is to be conscious of God & steadfast in your faith. Do not yearn for the world, & do not be seduced by it. Do not resent anything you have missed in it. Proclaim the truth,work for the next world. Oppose the oppressor and support the oppressed." Imam Ali (from his last will and testament) "Some people worship God for the purpose of His gifts. This is the worship of merchants. Some worship Him for the purpose of avoiding His punishment. This is the worship of the servants. Some worship Him as showing gratitude to Him. This is the worship of the genuine ones. It is the best of worship." Imam Ali "The Secret of health for both mind & body is not to mourn for the past,worry about the future,or anticipate troubles,but to live in the present moment wisely & earnestly." Buddha And from the Hadith: (from the Prophet Muhammad(PBUH) "Prayer is light, charity is proof, patience is illumination, and The Qur'an is the argument for or against you. Everyone starts out there day as a vendor of their own soul, either freeing it, or bringing about its ruin.

More About Me

Favorite Movie:

The Matrix, Star Wars, Marvel Films...Shawshank Redemption, Se7en, and other thriller and thought provoking films.

This is a very hard one, I would say The Holy Qur'an, The Bible-but in terms of other books, that are not spiritual, I enjoy reading a great man things, particularly things on African history.

Favorite Food:

Vegetarian foods, I do not eat nuts or mushrooms, and I try to eat and buy organic.

Favorite Music:

I am very diverse in my music tastes, I like all kinds of music, my favorite would be Jazz, but I listen to many things.

Dress Style:

I think my dress is upscale, the thing I know I need to work on is being a bit more casual at times. (but I am very comfortable in suits, even just relaxing and lounging)

Humor:

I have a good sense of humor

Hobbies & Interests:

Fitness-running, weightlifting, yoga, reading, researching, definitely travel-I have been traveling and living in different places since I was a little boy.

Travelled:

I have traveled to a lot of places in Europe, Turkey, the UAE, Canada, Egypt, (and lived in the U.S., Europe and Egypt)

Cultural Adaption:

I grew up living in different cultures and being surrounded by people from different cultures so I think I am very adapative

Romance:

You know, I think this would depend on the personality of the lady and the things that we click and gel on, so there is no "one set answer."

Personality:

I am an outgoing person, but I would describe myself as a ambivert

My Perfect Match is:

A woman who is intellectual, kind and compassionate who is curious about the world, and loves to travel.
