We constantly look at ourselves in the mirror, checking if our exterior still looks nice and presentable. If we would do the same for our hearts, we could taste the sweetness of Emaan.
This is one of those videos that makes an impression on you and actually makes you want to do something.
May Allah Subhanna Wata’ala give victory to Syria and its people and help us all!
Someone approached me on the Friends of Palestine stall and aggressively and condescendingly said: “Isn’t this the country that is always bombing another country?!?”
I said: “No, no, you’re thinking of America.”
I was taking the metro home today with a friend when this lady came up to me. “Why do you wear that?”, she asked referring to my niqab. At this point my heart was beating rapidly, I had a feeling she wanted to rip my niqab off and maybe hurt me.(My paranoia can be quite difficult to live with lol) I took a deep breath and nervously, but calmly explained why I wear niqab.
After hearing my explanation the whole atmosphere changed and she got *so* emotional and I felt so sorry for her. ”Even if you feel safe with your niqab on, you’re really in a much bigger danger. We live in Norway and norwegian men, white men, would love to see what’s underneath your niqab. Rape is something serious, and look at me; I’m dressed like this and I was raped. Can you imagine what they would do to you? I don’t want anyone to go through what I went through. Please reconsider your decision. If you were married, you’d have a man to protect you and he’d go with you outside, but you don’t and that’s why i’m so worried for you.” And she even cried, man!
Awww, this was so freaking sad and I just stood there and nervously laughed. Yes, I actually laughed! I felt so bad for her. And after her emotional little speech-ish thing she shook my hand and was like “respect”. She was so sweet, and I honestly wish I had more time to talk to her, but I had to go to the library before they closed… I could’ve given her da’wah and explain more. But khayr in sha Allah, I just hope she’s fine, she did seem a little bit intoxicated when she was talking to me… Allahu a’alam.
