Marriage is one of the signs of Allah SWT, and oftentimes there are signs God is working on your marriage that you might not even realize.
If your Lord wants you to get married, he will show you signs, and make it easy for you to find a life partner, and get married.
Similarly, if you are already married, and facing some issues, still you will see signs that Allah is helping you to get everything fixed.
If you are not sure about these signs, this article will help you in this regard. Once you can realize these helping signs from Allah SWT, it will be somewhat easier for you to keep going.
Signs God Wants You to be with Someone
It starts from the pre-marriage stage. When you are about to get married, and looking for a spouse, there are signs telling you that you are getting help from Allah regarding your marriage.
1. Increase in Your Income
To maintain a family well, you will have to have a minimum amount of earnings to provide for the family. So, if you already have a job or you do a business, from which you earn a good amount of money or the amount is sufficient for a small family, consider it as the first sign from your Lord that he is providing you rizq for your spouse.
Now, it can happen that you do not have that much money or a stable job to provide the necessary stuff for your family. In this case, the door of rizq or barakah can be opened after you get married. Once your spouse comes into your house, Allah SWT will increase your rizq, and put blessing in your earnings.
2. Makes It Easier for You to Find Your Spouse
When you’re looking for your spouse through a marriage media or your relatives, things won’t be that complicated for you. You would find the right person from the right family and background as you were looking for.
However, that doesn’t mean those who struggle to find a spouse, don’t get help from Allah SWT in this regard. But having the right intention, keeping your priorities straight, and keeping it simple shouldn’t cause much delay if you knock on the right door to get your spouse.
