Sometimes I think I really want to get married but then I realize all I actually want is a wedding..
One time at the masjid my grandmother was trying to fix her hijab and a woman ran over across the room and snatched her scarf yelling “Your neck is showing! Astaghfirullah wear your hijab properly! Fear Allah” My grandmother was so upset by her grabbing on her like that and calling her out in front of everyone and nothing pissed me off more than that.
And that’s a perfect example of why we all need to take it down a notch because you drive people away when you’re overzealous and doing the most.
All I want is a pastry chef to live in my kitchen and make me cheesecake and baklawa whenever I want is that too much to ask
It bothers me when people say Muslims “gave” women their rights. It might just be me but I feel like rights aren’t things that can be “given” to someone, they already are there; they’re something we’re all born with. Islam reminded us simple human beings of that, the religion highlighted and demanded that those rights stop being overlooked.
"I think too much. I think ahead. I think behind. I think sideways. I think it all. If it exists, I’ve fucking thought of it."
I feel like we all have that one friend that blatantly lies on Facebook about what they’re doing or completely embellish stories and you just look at it like
