Reblogging this once again because I am happy that this wonderful message reached a lot of people around the world. Muslims (and even non-Muslims) who saw this realized the true essence of hijab. It actually touched the heart of the readers. Mashaa Allah and Alhamdulillah.
Jazakallahu khayran to sis Yasmin Mogahed for making such a beautiful and explicit explanation of the role of hijab and women in Islam. ^^
You’re going to come across people in your life who will say all the right words at all the right times. But in the end, it’s always their actions you should judge them by. It’s actions, not words, that matter.
When you’re young, thunderstorms seem scary. Like the sky is angry at you. But now that I’m older, something about its roar soothes me; it’s comforting to know that even nature needs to scream sometimes.
