Temporary Wound/Permanent Scar

You might be hurt now but after sometime you will grow out of it. The wound will heal, but what you have said or done during that ‘hurting period’, is there to stay. The scars of your actions are permanent.

Do not let a temporary wound leave a permanent scar.

Islam, Veiling and Society

Isn’t it funny how the society says, “Do not judge a book by its cover.” But then it turns and go about judging the girls/women in cover.

What’s wrong with this, if a lady covers herself with a decent dressing or a dupatta or a scarf or hijabs and gowns or niqab? Huh?

Our religion, Islam, has a dress code for females.

And say to the believing women that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty; that they should not display their beauty and ornaments except what (must ordinarily) appear thereof; that they should draw their khimār over their bosoms and not display their beauty except to their husbands, their fathers, their husband’s fathers, their sons, their husbands’ sons, their brothers or their brothers’ sons, or their sisters’ sons, or their women (friends), or the slaves whom their right hands possess, or male servants free of physical needs, or small children who have no sense of the shame of sex; and that they should not strike their feet in order to draw attention to their hidden ornaments.

(Surah An-Nur [24:31])

Even with this knowledge, our people are so naive, so judgemental. Some are like, “Why she covers herself? Does she have something to hide?” While some go by, “When you have no flaw, why cover? Why not show your beauty to the world?”

I have a question for all those people,“Have you seen that food which is placed uncovered? All the flies, dirt, germs and numerous other filthy things find an opening to it.  Will you take a bite/sip knowing it has been exposed to the filthiness? Not without a doubt. Eventually, you throw it away. What a waste! But think, if you would have covered it, not because it has some flaw but to protect it from all that filthiness, would that have been better?

Similarly, a female covers herself, not because she has a flaw to hide but because it is her IDENTITY! She is protecting herself from every random/filthy eye to sit on her. She is displaying her faith instead of her body. Just tell me what is wrong with that?”

If a woman is free to show her body then why is she judged when she chooses to cover it?

I agree there are some who uses the ‘covering’ for ‘hiding’ purposes but who are you to judge? Are you perfect? I know you are not. Because we are humans and we are not suppose to be perfect. But one should always keep trying to be close to it. That’s why if someone decides to edge towards being better, don’t create hurdles in their path instead be appreciative. May Allah have mercy upon you and all of us. (Ameen)

Classy is when a woman has everything to flaunt but chooses not to show it.

May Allah help all of us to make ourselves a better person than we were yesterday. (Ameen)

Tips for Last 10 Days of Ramadan

Assalamualaikum,

I hope all of you, Muslim brothers and sisters, are having a great Ramadan. We are almost near the end. The last ‘Ashra’ has started, the ‘Ashra’ of seeking refuge from hell.

3-ASHRA

“O’ Allah, save us from the fire (fire of hell).”

(Ameen)

I would like to share some tips for these last 10 days. May Allah grant us the ability to achieve them and be victorious.

3 Awesome Tips for the Last 10 Days of Ramadan

  1. Give 1 dinar in charity everyday, so if it falls on Laylatul Qadr, you will be rewarded as much as if you have given charity everyday for 84 years.
  2. Pray 2 nafals every night, so if it falls on Laylatul Qadr, you will be rewarded as much as if you have prayed 2 nafals every night for 84 years.
  3. Read Surah Ikhlass, 3 times a day, so if it falls on Laylatul Qadr, you will be rewarded as much as if you have read Quran every day for 84 years.

Have a blessed Ramadan, until the last day.

Allah Hafiz

Shattered Pieces

There are days when

She herself is shattered into million pieces

But if she gets the chance to tape someone’s pieces together

She takes it

 

When they walk away, happy

A smile appears on her face

Only to be washed away by the thought

Will there be someone for her

Someone who can take time to patch her up

 

Looking at her shattered pieces

And the high walls, she screens herself with

She laughs a little

Her door opens to all

But she ain’t gonna step in just about any body’s house

 

Afraid to put herself out in the world

She keeps her shattered pieces to herself

You can tell, she ain’t feeling ‘on the top of the world’

But her lips her sealed…

Pick a Prop and Strike a Pose!

Props on stick are in fashion these days. Good for me! I get to try new ideas and people are happy with their props. 😉

I loved making these props. Though I did not get to keep much of them but still, when people accepted them with open hands, I was super excited 🙂 . I made face masks, dialogue balloons, mustaches, glasses, pirate hats, monster mouth and Dracula teeth (my favorite).
