Assalamualaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh,

While I was on the bus heading home I found that there was a considerable amount of noise. I mean this is typical on a bus, I am aware. However the source of the noise was not where you expected: boys. No rather it was a group of Hijabi girls. Now sisters I am aware the notion to be quiet like mice doesn't sit very well in modern, "feminist" society however we must be careful in what we are saying in public.

But I would like to point out that the reason why I did not expect girls to be making noise is because we as women are regarded as pearls and we have to protect our awrah , this however does not mean that boys are supposed to make noise, no it just means that as women we are supposed to have more modesty as we are , (lack of a better word) more alluring to men, that men are to us.

In general we, male or female should be conscious of what we portray Islam to be. Wearing a juba, or a Hijab identifies you with Islam therefore we as muslims should be careful and conscious of what we do.

This is just my observation...we as muslims are meant to portray peace and invite others to join therefore we must acknowledge that as muslims we are the representatives and what we do, people will take that as what a muslim is like. That means we have to behave in a certain way.  I know I know im generalising but there is an element of truth there right?

I'm aware sometimes we forget and that's normal so don't beat yourself up if you realise your just a little bit too loud, just turn it down a notch and maybe inform your friends aswell.. InshaAllah it should be in our heads that behaving abrasively is not how a muslim should behave like..

This goes on to ha'yaah (shame) we should be conscious of what we do in public and make sure we are not trying to draw attention to ourselves.

The Prophet (s) told us that eemaan (faith) has seventy branches, the highest of which is Laa ilaaha illa Allaah and the lowest of which is removing something harmful from the road, and he added, “Hayaa’ (having a sense of shame) is part of eemaan.” When we study hayaa’ in Islam, we begin to see clearly that its definition goes far beyond mere “modesty,” as it is often translated, but it includes a more broad definition that is probably more adequately translated as “a sense of shame.”

Happy music

Life takes us through so many hurdles, so many journeys so many discoveries of ourselves. Do we ever just sit and think about how we came to be the person that we are now? I know I have been through a whirlwind of different personalities, different phases, feelings, thoughts, dreams. However I have remained somewhat constant- what I admire about myself is that I believe in myself (not necessarily my abilities) but I believe and support my actions regardless, and ... I'm glad I have strong principles, I guess it makes me who I am. Despite what I've had to sacrifice for them.Over the years I've always wondered who I'd be. In fact when I was younger I would dream of how I would be when I was older. (Older being past 20's) I'd imagine I would magically transform into this strong, independent, accomplished woman. And it would somehow come to be at this magical transition to adulthood. Oh how I would tell myself it's not that simple. Life is not that simple. We n…

Capturing my heart

I've been watching 13 reasons why on Netflix. It's been an interesting journey of suicidal thoughts and the teenage angst in high school. I feel enlightened to a certain degree (bearing in mind it is for entertainment) I feel like the message Hannah passes on to Clay is very similar to the one Virginia Woolf wrote to her husband before she committed suicide. I can't help but feel there's so much tragic beauty to these notes, so much beautiful poetry. I've always said there's so much beauty to sadness.       But you need to be here if I’m going to tell           my story. If I’m going to explain why I did what I did. Because you aren’t every other guy — you’re different. You’re good. And kind. And decent. And I didn’t deserve to be with someone like you. I never would. I would’ve ruined you. It was me and everything that’s happened to me."

What im grateful for

I must say my post titled '23% complete' is one of my good posts, I don't know what's a bad post of mine (with no arrogance intended) maybe the posts where I'm not thinking enough or encouraging my readers to think more? Anyhow I've been at placement for about a week now and I can honestly say I've learnt a lot. I've learnt practical skills but that's not what I wanted to talk about. I wanted to talk about how grateful I am to be in a career where I can impact lives' daily, I sincerely hope I am helping others even in the smallest way. I am grateful to be able to listen to others who have not been heard by society for a long time, those who are deemed as 'old' or 'forgotten' , I feel privileged to listen and provide comfort. I am grateful that I can aid others in their difficulties and make them feel better, because everyone needs to feel better sometimes. I am grateful to be that someone who can make a difference when I had noon…
