Has Allah already chosen woman for every man


Is it true that Allah has chosen a woman for every man in this World? If that is so then why there are so many single men in this world? I am not talking about boyfriend or girlfriend couples, there are actually some men who never have a woman. If Allah has created us in pairs then why there are so many men who never have women?


In the Name of Allah, the All-Beneficent, the All-Merciful.
Wa-Alaykum Assalam Wa Rahmtu-Allah,

Allah SWT has provided mankind with a choice…. so Allah SWT has created many things and provided us with a guide as to how ti use these blessings however it is up to us to use the guide and what has been created for us correctly. Our misuse of our blessings can cause an imbalance, if indeed that is what is happening.

But please also be aware that these balances change from time to time due to wars and disease and social standings ets. For example see chart 1 here where the number of men v women unmarried changes over time in the USA.
