He said and I quote, “Don’t even THINK of any guy until he comes to your house with a marriage proposal!”
The fact that this particular brother is madly in love with a girl he can never marry is another story.
Some women fear wearing the hijab; they fear loss of their family, friends, job or their careers. Some fear the threat of violence. Some fear their failure to commit to hijab full time; fear is fear and is real to those who fear.
I was not born in hijab. In fact, I remember when I did not wear hijab. It is not in me to look down on a sister who does not wear hijab. I am no judge and my judgment is not the One that matters.
For me, I know it was Allah’s mercy alone that made it easy for me to hijab; I know that without Allah, it was much easier said than done. If hijab is a struggle for you, seek the aid of The One, Allah. He is the best to smooth your way.
Ya Allah, we are in need of You, and You are not in need of us. Help us to make the best decisions for our own sakes. Grant those who strive to please You, the courage and the strength we need. Ameen.
Do you know what Islam is?
It is indeed a religion founded on truth.
It is such a fountain-head of learning that several streams of wisdom
and knowledge flow from it.
It is such a lamp that several lamps will be lit from it.
It is a lofty beacon of light Illuminating the path of Allah.
It is such a set of principles and beliefs that will fully satisfy every seeker of truth and reality.
Know you all that Allah has made Islam, the most sublime path for the attainment of His supreme pleasure and the highest standard of his worship and obedience.
He has favoured it with noble precepts, exalted principles, undoubtable arguments, unchallengeable supremacy and undeniable wisdom.
It is up to you to maintain the eminence and dignity granted to it by the Lord, to follow it sincerely, to do justice to its articles of faith and belief, to obey implicitly its tenets and orders, and to give it the proper place in your lives.
