The age gap is an issue as 41. If it was five to six years even seven but past child bearing age is concerning. Yes you can still conceive as many women do in UK, but marriage for Arab men is to have a family. The age gap is a problem. If he was divorced with kids I would say unless you are very stunning as in Jlo looks Monica Bellucci level and told him you have not a lot then be very very very wary! Read up on family in Morocco as the gap is too too big. This is the same for the Middle East. However, there will be some exceptions which are true love innocent love. My father is Egyptian ten years older than my English mother all his friends married women their age. In Morocco the age gap is not normal or accepted in society if the lady is older. If five years gap and both have kids I'd say fine if he's modern and genuine. You are young still and dont rush please be careful!
