I am 21 years old and I have hepatitis B virus….


I am 21 years old and I have Hepatit B virus. But alhamdulillah my liver is healthy I am just carrier of it. There are brothers who offered marriage many times. Whenever I felt this person is a good Muslim, can be a good husband, practices Islam, fears Allah, has knowledge. I then told them about my virus then they all started to refuse. This virus is given me by Allah then there must be a wisdom Alhamdulillah. So what step can I put next? Just some advice would be great for my case!


Assalamu alaykum warahmatullah.

Sorry to hear about your medical condition sister and I sincerely pray that this is somehow sorted and that you are able to have a wonderful married life.

So pertaining to your Question, since I couldnt advice profecssionally, I approached two doctor friends who unanimously agreed that your condition needs further medical evaluation, there is a possibility that your case is very mild and you might even outgrow it by not having any symptoms for life.

However some things that I can generally suggest for you is:

1- Accepting the fact that you have a minor medical condition. This can really move your vision into your future, you have to accept the fact that you can actually pass on the condition to your husband and your child(ren) to be. You may have thought of this already, since you are living with it, but do re-sit with the entire situation again and reshape your future.
This will really put your thoughts and feeling at peace and redirect your approach to the matter..

2- Everything is in Allah (AWJ)’s hands. There is not a single thing we are able to do for ourselves. In that case prayers for yourself is very important.
Make sure you actually ask Allah for a good husband, someone who will accept you, and not judge you by your medical condition.(although Alhamdulillah at this point you aren’t counted as one)
Besides this, you are still very young and have time to wait for the right match InshaAllah.

3- Since this is a virus, and is contagious, it’s not something that Allah made seprerately and then fit it into your system. Looks like it has been handed over to you either through your parents or the like. Whatever it maybe, Allah surely knows of it and will def give you the strength to go through Inshallah.

I hope I was able to answer the Question from a perspective you were looking for..
