True story of how this Nigerian and American met via Facebook, fell in love and got married in Nigeria

Salik and Rabiat

The love story of Salik H Alvi and Rabiat S Abubakar

 For many sceptics like me, it was a rude shock to actually meet a real life couple who met on social media.

 Facebook is a popular free social networking website that allows registered users to create profiles, upload photos and video, send messages and keep in touch with friends, family and colleagues. The site, which is available in 37 different languages, includes public features.

 Face book which was originally designed as a dating site has come to mean different things to different people. Asked how they met Rabiat says..

'Thank you so much for this wonderful effort sure I would love to share with you how we met and eventually got married
I can’t remember the exact day just that  I came across one of his posts on Facebook in one group called "understanding Islam " which he co-founded with Usman Bala Mohammed.
I said to myself ‘What a nice post and a great idea’. I inboxed him and asked him to add me to the group, he sent me a friend request and I accepted. thereafter he added me as a member to the group and even made me an Admin as we kept working together for the achievements of the goals of the group
As time went on we had chats about the group and even other groups on Facebook; we discussed and shared a lots of ideas about Islam and other facts of life.
We came to know and understand each other so well and knew the fact that we had so much in common and even had same problems in life.
Well we lived in different countries but the distance did not make us feel so apart because we made phone calls to each other, sent messages and even had video chats.

We were just friends and then we fall in love
I didn't believe him the first time he said I LOVE YOU
Believe me it took me a longtime to say I LOVE YOU TOO
To tell you the truth I tried to cut off  him off as many times as possible, but.......
The feelings became unbearable and it was not something I could get rid of.
As time went on, he proposed to me and I agreed and he decided to come to Nigeria after I sent him an invitation letter to apply for his visa
And lucky enough the embassy approved, he got the visa and he came for the marriage.'

What a great story I asked about his nationality and she said ‘Well he is Pakistan by birth but he is an American citizen now, he lives in Baltimore MD’
I am a Nigerian Fulani by tribe I am living in Dutse Jigawa State
On Salik’s part, this is what he had to say:

‘I thank the almighty Allah for allowing me and Rabiat in getting to know each other so well trusting and believing in one another without a single doubt despite the fact that I live in America and she is in Nigeria. This is a miracle indeed. Despite our distance we both found out that we are meant to be together. Just a small friendship turned into love despite our distance. I thank Allah for giving me the opportunity

If you had any doubts that True love could not be found on social media, here is your proof. we wish them well in their union..
