Khalid Al Ameri and Salama Mohamed have both become well-known for sharing light-hearted and inspiring content online, much of it being very personal to both of them.
Continuing to keep it real and raw with their audience, Khalid has opened up about the “lowest point” in his marriage and sharing his advice on how they overcame it.
Taking to Instagram and sharing a photo of himself and Salama with his 1.2 million followers, the social media personality reflected upon a quote by the Prophet Muhammed, “There is nothing like marriage, for two who love each other.”
Relating the quote to his own marriage, the social media personality and content creator explained that the best thing you can do in a relationship is to “silence the noise”.
He went on to explain that in his relationship he used to listen to the noise.

“For so long Salama and I’s marriage wasn’t our marriage, it was everyone else’s, it was relatives who told us what was best, it was ‘friends’ who told us what we should do come out the strongest amongst each other, it was people we didn’t even know that we were trying to be like because they fit in,” he said.
This eventually caused the couple to grow apart.
“We grew so far apart that we no longer knew why were together, it was the lowest point of our marriage, until we decided to try something new, and that was to put ourselves and our love for each other first, and everything else second,” he added.
Putting each other first and silencing other people’s thoughts around them was what turned things around for the couple. As Khalid simply said, it is their marriage and “nobody else’s”.
He finished his post saying, “We are the ones who wake up and go to sleep next to each other every day and every night, we are the ones who want to be together for the rest of our lives, just us together, with a love stronger that the noise of others.”
It’s definitely sound advice to live by.
