I was reading a website called "Holla Back New York" where people who live in New York City can report harassment. They can submit location, time, pictures, etc. in order to shame the harassers and also to help others avoid that situation.

I came across **this** report and I just thought, wow... SubhanAllah, Allahu Alim.
*note* the post I linked to does have some foul language, fyi

This girl was being harassed and what did she do?!?! She wrapped her scarf around her head and shoulders to protect herself.

It's linked to the word "this"
Sorry, the color scheme might have made it hard to find. I'll try to make it more obvious!

SubhanAllah =O
It's in the Qur'an, the reasons why a woman whould cover herself and one of those reasons are "protection". And by protection, it's meant all kinds of protection, not only psychological, but even physical. Allahu Akbar. I'm proud to be a muslimah

lol. man. this made me chuckle. :-)islam is like common sense. there is no need for so many questions:why shud i wear a hijab? shud i wear one? when shud i wear one? why shud i wear one? it really does go with the fitrah. and if it goes with the fitrah then it must be the right thing.islam is just keep answering your conscience. simple. SubhanAllah!!!

Rubber said...

man, i love this post. it is so lol so practical.It is like a wakeup call to what islam is about:answering ur conscience. going with ur fitrah. nothing more.MAN I SO love this post. i dont care if i sound like a loon.this is how Allah teaches us. Through our experiences in everyday life. it isnt about conventions and rules...IT IS ABOUT WHAT MAKES U FEEL MORE WORTHY,THAT IS IT!!!!!!!!!!!so this is how we find the right path.pray for me, sis.

Rubber said...

Fatimah said...

@ Rubber: I went by that blog, and it was nice! Thanks for the reference. Ya, I wore my scarf around my cousin too, but they don't know I converted yet, lol. I'm sorry that you get that kind of stuff coming from a Muslim family, but inshaAllah you will have an easier time in the future. Maybe once everybody knows and it isn't like a "shock" anymore, people will lay off.

@ Fatimah: no problem, the pleasure is all mine :-D glad u enjoyed it sis!
