Assalamu Alaikum

Sister Ummziba, Jazak Allah for you encouragement.  I will keep your words in mind as I go to this event.  I do plan to go, I must.  Inshallah it will be good for me.

PAZ, Khadija

jakazallah sisters, I ran into some other muslimahs in the walmart near where I live and even though I was in hijab and greeted them approprieately they looked at me as if I were crazy and then went on! I am of european descent and they were speaking Arabic and wearing Saudi abayas, so I am wondering if they speak English? I dislike being treated as if I were 2nd class in the muslim world, but ALLAH (pwt) knows best, and I will perservere!

Assalamu alaikum,

Indeed, do perservere, Sis Maryah.  Next time you run into some sisters, follow your greeting immediately with a question, for example, "assalamu alaikum, do you sisters live in this city?"  Perhaps the question will give them pause to stop and answer and a conversation can then follow.  Surely if they are out and about on their own they must have at least a minimum grasp of english.

It has been my experience that once a stranger knows you are in need of some help because you are a "new" Muslim, they can't do enough for you.  Insha'allah, you will soon have some Muslim sisters in your life to help enrich your deen.

Peace, ummziba.

Sticks and stones may break my bones, but your words...they break my soul ~

Asalamu Alaikum


I just wanna say I LOVE ALL REVERTS!!! :)

Mashallah, all the reverts go through true jihad... with uncountable struggles from family, friends, and society!

I admire everyone who reverts back to Islam! Makes me very happy to know that we still have brothers and sisters reverting despite the challenges, and yet we see born muslims who are led astray. Subhanallah.

So more power to the reverts! Allahu Akbar!  :)

Stay strong brothers n sisters!!! Inshallah, Allah will grant you Jannah Firdaus!  AMEEN!!!!

 
Ma'Salama,
Hamid
