Hilaal khairan wa rushdin rabbi wa rabbuk-Allah

Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem A cresent of goodness and guidance .My Lord and Your lord is Allah
By the Qadr of Allah I chanced upon a young woman nearly one year ago , she said she had been reading the Quran and needed some answers , I enquired how did she come to have the Quran , she didnt answer that but said she had been drinking heavily and read in the Quran the verses forbidding intoxicants and said to herself [ I'm going to stop ] and she did , straight away Sabhan Allah. O you who believe! Intoxicants (all kinds of alcoholic drinks), gambling, Al-Ansab , and Al-Azlam (arrows for seeking luck or decision) are an abomination of Shaitan's (Satan) handiwork. So avoid (strictly all) that (abomination) in order that you may be successful . . Shaitan (Satan) wants only to excite enmity and hatred between you with intoxicants (alcoholic drinks) and gambling, and hinder you from the remembrance of Allah and from As-Salat (the prayer). So, will you not then abstain?. 5 :90, 91 It wasnt so much what she said as amazing as is that a girl from a western secular background can read one ayyat [ verse ] in the Quran and then go cold turkey [ abstain ] from something she knew was destructive to her mind , body and soul , it was the way she said it [ face lowered in shame and regret ] . How many of us who have embraced Islam or reaffirmed our faith after years in the wilderness , can identify with this , the life of shame , a life void of dignity and worthiness , for Allah did not create us to graze like mere cattle but created us for much nobler purposes Alhumu Lillahi Rabil Alaimeen 5 months later this young woman embraced Islam put on a hejab and started on a path of slavery , a total transformation , instead the appearance of shame has been replaced by a glow and a serenity only found in the submitting soul, only tasted by those who recognize what is already deep in their innate soul . (This is) a Book (the Qur'an) which We have sent down to you, full of blessings that they may ponder over its Verses, and that men of understanding may remember. 39:29 what is it that transformed a young beautiful women who's only idea of social life was to " party " because thats what society expects of her , to be at the service of any tom , dick and harry and sorry to put it in such a vulgar manner but it is the reality and we all know it . can the female soul ever be satisfied with a such denigration ? no indeed not , for it is beneath the dignity of the position Allah afforded to the daughters of Hawah as) [ Eve ] Indeed she saw something of higher value undoubtably , an awakening to her true self ,her natural instincts , her full potential , she wrapped herself in a garment of honor and calm so as to lower her gaze to protect her chastity , to leave off what displeases her Creator to what pleases Him and to reaffirm , using her intellect and logic that this creed is the only course worth living and the only avenue to obtain a life of dignity '\ inna hazzaa lahu Wal Fazlul ....... This surely is evident favour .....27 : 16 Away with the drollness , the emptiness of the illusionary pastimes, the habitual slavery to desires , that this and that will fix the aching needy heart , fulfill the wandering mind , nothing will fix it except obedience to Allah Most Gracious and you were on the brink of a pit of Fire, and He saved you from it. Thus Allah makes His Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.,) clear to you, that you may be guided. 3 :103 Despite the strict code of discipline and dress found in Islam in comparison to the laxness and "freedoms" drowning non muslim society , women of all persuasions , ages and nationalities flock to the Hejab and the Niqab in a time when virtually the whole world is against it ,when the western elite are informing us that its a sign of repression backwardness and domination by males and we women need to be protected and empowered . This concern for our welfare brings tears to our eyes as we have experienced this concern in Iraq and Afghanistan and Gaza when we bury our children , this concern is killing us ,literally. Those who have been expelled from their homes unjustly only because they said: "Our Lord is Allah." - For had it not been that Allah checks one set of people by means of another, monasteries, churches, synagogues, and mosques, wherein the Name of Allah is mentioned much would surely have been pulled down. Verily, Allah will help those who help His (Cause). Truly, Allah is All-Strong, All-Mighty . 22:40 Why are the transgressing rulers so afraid of a piece of cloth covering the face or is it whats behind the cloth that so greatly disturbs them that they must make ridiculous laws to ban the hejab and niqab , why does " men of power " feel so threatened by our head covers , what can a woman in a niqab do to them that makes them so paranoid , with all their might and their recourses and their superior way of life with all their freedoms and human rights ,if they had right on their side why are they so afraid of a woman in a niqab , we find it amusing if you think about it is ridiculous , the double standards are clear and we know them well for they are the tyrants of yesteryear the abusers and deceivers of today and the loser of tomorrow And let not those grieve you (O Muhammad [Image]) who rush with haste to disbelieve; verily, not the least harm will they do to Allah. It is Allah's Will to give them no portion in the Hereafter. For them there is a great torment. 3:176. And thats in a nut shell , is what its all about ,the twisted words and fake concerns are nothing but dust , its got nothing to do with our piece of cloth but to do with the fact that out hejab and niqabs are our armour are our defence mechanism against their life of absolute waste . A woman clothed to please Allah is in an impenetrable fortress no matter what happens to her she remains steadfast a slave to Allah and a rejecter of ignorant ungrateful mans' demands and is in confrontation with all that is Batil [ falsehood] No man or women who has not tasted the delights of faith in Allah Azza wa Jall can know that our coverings are our blood , are our breath and our soul , we will never give them up just as our steadfast sisters have done in the past , if we are deprived , alienated , fined , imprisoned , put to death for our coverings then so be it , we embrace the sacrifice . It is all in Allah's hands to do as He pleases and in Him we trust and turn in repentance , ameen No wretched ruler no constitution no law or value system will defeat us as we are the mothers daughters and sisters of heros , and we reject your attempt to reduce us to your level for our aim is to raise and have both this world and the next and that is the attraction that captures the hearts of women all over this earth in the barren fields of Korea to the bustling cities of Brazil women free themselves from the chains of man made methodologies and establish themselves on the path that leads to an exalted standard of character , a character of goodness and guidance , insha'Allah . Indeed there has been an excellent example for you in Ibrahim (Abraham) and those with him, when they said to their people: "Verily, we are free from you and whatever you worship besides Allah, we have rejected you, and there has started between us and you, hostility and hatred for ever, until you believe in Allah Alone," 60:4 Alhumdu Lillahi Rabil Alimeen maidservant Maria bint Ahl Adh Dhimmah [ daughter of Jewish and Christians women]


  1. Masha'allah sister such an amazing story with an amazing message of the strength and courage of the Muslim Women, and also about their willingness to sacrifice. Can any other woman compare to the Muslim Woman? I think NOT. May Allah protect all our sisters, Ameen.
