islam way

Associating the entire religion of Islam with terrorism or oppression is narrow-minded and wrong. For centuries, Muslims around the world have been responsible for scientific discoveries, works of art, and major technological advancements. There is a great deal of diversity in the way Islam is practiced by the 1.6 billion Muslims around the world, it is a vastly complex and diverse religion. Read more

As long as Allah is with you, don’t worry about those who hurt you.

ما دام الله يحفظك لا تحزن على أحد أهملك
As long as Allah is protecting you, don’t become sad over someone who dominates you.

وما دام الله يريد لك شيئاً فلن يقف في وجهك شيء أبداً.
As long as Allah wants something for you, nothing will ever stand in your way.

do you guys realize how amazing this clip and this whole relationship is. not only bc of the clear chemistry and adoration between these two pure kids but it’s the way they speak about their beliefs: a boy confesses why he gave up on some parts of islam to a muslim girl and he knows that the girl won’t judge him. and he doesn’t judge her.  they like each other and have a crush on each other, but better yet - they fucking respect each other. and to see islam presented in this way - in a new, complex way - in a tv show feels kinda fucking revolutionary and amazing to me, and im not even religious so I can only imagine how it feels for religious people!

10 Ways To Prepare Your Body Before Ramaḍān!


Some of us think we will suddenly be ready when Ramaḍān starts, but planning will make the transition a lot easier. The following are 10 ways to prepare your body for the month of fasting.

Food consumption: Begin with eating moderate quantities. Do not splurge on food because Ramaḍān is approaching. This will only increase your appetite and make it more difficult to fast.

Early breakfast: During Ramaḍān, we wake up early for Suhūr, the pre-dawn meal before the fast begins. It is important not to skip this. Start having an early breakfast from now to help your body get used to the earlier hours, especially if you are not much of a breakfast eater.

Do not snack: Get used to having three main meals - breakfast, lunch and dinner - and avoiding snacking in between. During Ramaḍān, you will have to get used to having two main meals, Suhūr and ʾifṭār. This way, you will only have to cut out one meal.

Reduce coffee intake: If you are a coffee-lover and do not want to have a pounding headache during the first few days of Ramaḍān, start reducing your caffeine intake now. Switch to decaf, one coffee at a time, until you are only drinking decaffeinated coffee, then cut it out altogether.

Wean off smoking: Smokers who enter Ramaḍān unprepared may experience various withdrawal symptoms such as irritability, anger, restlessness, impatience, and difficulty concentrating during fasting hours. To avoid this, reduce smoking during the day to mimic what will happen when you fast. It is also good to view Ramaḍān as an opportunity to quit bad habits such as smoking altogether.

Voluntary fast days: What better way to prepare yourself for Ramaḍān than through practice? Try doing a few fasts in the run up to Ramaḍān to help you adapt. This is also a great opportunity to make up for any missed fasts from last year.

Regulate sleep: If you normally sleep late and wake up late, start regulating your sleep from now, because during Ramaḍān you will be waking up early for Suhūr. You might also be sleeping earlier as a result. Alternatively, have an afternoon nap and sleep a little later. Whatever sleeping habit you choose, start to mimic it from now.

Stock up: Meal-planning before Ramaḍān can save you a lot of hassle, especially during the first week of Ramaḍān while you are busy adjusting. Prepare your menu for ʾifṭār and Suhūr for the first seven days, list the ingredients needed, and go grocery shopping now when you are still full of energy.

Local doctor: If you have concerns over your ability to fast for whatever reason, be it diabetes, high blood pressure or reflux, now is the time to schedule an appointment with your doctor. Check with your doctor if it is safe for you to fast.

vilde the snake went and told the pepsi max squad about elias calling sana a slave, the pepsi max girls calling sana a psycho, them all thinking they know about islam so much better than sana bc sana being on the bus means she’s not representing islam in the right way at all, noora and yousef 😷😷😷, sara backstabbing sana all this time. noora being super pretty but sana not bc she’s the outcast.

sana remove yourself from them all.

i’ve seen so much…..?? anger at the show for not showing Sana enough because it’s her season? and that it’s  all over the place and focusing on the other characters too much….

But honestly for me this season has been pretty good story wise. It’s brought up a lot of issues a young muslim girl may face and yeah she’s in a really shitty place right now and her friends aren’t being the best but…. it happens. Life happens just like this and in that regard skam has been right on the ball.

I think theres a very subtle literary device being used here in that the story is chaotic because it’s reflecting Sana. It’s reflecting the chaos of her identity. Sana doesn’t know whats happening and what she wants and what she doesn’t want, Sana doesn’t know what to think or who to confide in and so the story is all over the place, we dont know whats happening in the story and we don’t know what we want to happen or who is really in her corner.

Im upset for Sana too but I really don’t get the annoyance with the storytelling and anger at the ‘bad writing.’

anonymous asked:

This is just curiousty dont get offended.Being a women how can you believe in a religion which allows a 40 year old man to marry a 10 year old? Which does not give women equal rights in will? Which asks women to cover themselves so men dont get attracted? Which limits the rights of women to such a horrifying extent?

Women are not oppressed in Islam. Women have rights.

Women, through Islam, were given the right to owning property, conducting business, and fighting in war way before women in any other areas were.

Women have an extremely high status in Islam, we are treated like queens. 

We get taken care of, we don’t have to provide for our necessities. It is the OBLIGATION for the nearest male (husband, father, brother, uncle, etc.) to provide for us. We don’t have to do an inch of effort. BUT, if we want to work, if we want to provide for the household, we have total rights to just as the wife of the prophet ﷺ, Khadija ra radi Allahu ‘anha had her own business and provided for the family. 

When it comes to the age of Ayesha radi Allahu ‘anha when she got married to the prophet Muhammad ﷺ, most scholars believe she was actually around the age of 19. However, even if she was young, this was not an odd practice back then. In fact, the UK eliminated being married from the age of 11 just about a while ago, not too long from today. So if you want to go on that, UK is also a victim here.  

Women are given honorable rights, honestly, I believe Islam is far easier for women than it is for men. Men have to provide for the family, they have to pray in the mosque every Friday, they have to give a mahr (unless women excuse them from it) when getting married, and so on. All these, women do not have to do. Women even get a break from prayers and other religious obligations such as fasting every time they get their periods. How easy Allah is on us women Subhanallah. 

The prophet Muhammad ﷺ often encouraged for men to be of the best of character with their wives and not to mistreat them. A woman, in fact, came to the prophet Muhammad ﷺ complaining that her husband does not fulfill her sexual needs because he would spend the night praying, the prophet ﷺ reprimanded her husband and told him to leave the prayers at night and fulfill his wife’s needs. LOL, can you imagine?! 

Before Islam was revealed, daughters were buried and killed when born, Islam prohibited this and gave women rights they did not have before. We have the right to divorce and the right to educate ourselves to expand the list of rights.

So…how then do we not have rights or are oppressed? 

How are we limited? We are not? I live life just like any other woman, just more covered up is all. 

Also, what is wrong with covering up? Clothes were a form of advancement in the “Stone age.” We are at the peak of advancement. If you look through this analysis, it is those who roam around in shorter clothes that are moving far from advancement. 

Secondly, covering is less for men and more for our benefit. The point of covering is so that men do not objectify us, not for us to do any favor for men. Covering up forces men to marry due to deeper reasons than for the superficial surface. Covering protects a woman from lustful eyes and from being in danger. The notion of escaping beauty standards and from being objectified is far more appealing and liberating to me than to go around in shorts 🤷  (no hate, I’m not judging you all, just personal preference). We are dignified and respected, not objectified and disrespected.

So now you tell me, what’s wrong with the way Islam treats women with utmost respect, honor, and dignity?

Please do let me know your thoughts and have a nice day! 

Sometimes Allah Swt Shows Us The Brightest Lights When We Are In The Darkest Places.

The more I go closer to islam, the less I want to live in a western country (especially usa). 

I want to live in a place where I can really connect to people because we have the same beliefs and morals, I want to live in a place where I won’t have to explain why I don’t eat out even though I’m not vegetarian/vegan, I want to live in a place where I don’t have to keep making excuses for not attending “BYOB” and swim parties, I want to live in a place where we can all walk to the masjid, I want to live in a place where the city will be filled with salam, I want to live in a place where I won’t be judged for practicing my faith (which happens in many muslim countries too but at least I won’t be in fear of violence), I want to live in a place where I can pray where I am without fear, I want to live in a place where I can eat out without worrying if it’s halal, I want to live in a place where the adhaan calms the city, I want to live in a place where there are more resources to learn islam, I want to live in a place where elders will tell me stories of prophets, I want to live in a place where I can tell stories to young ones and enlighten them with the knowledge I have, I want to live in a place where I can wear my hijab without fear, I want to live in a place where we can celebrate Eid without holding back. My heart yearns for this. It really does.

anonymous asked:

Could you write about Sana x Yousef first kiss?

ok so.

I’ve gotten a lot of prompts requesting a scene between Yousef and Sana that include kissing, usually about their first shared kiss. And those are such sweet prompts about such sweet imaginary scenarios, but out of simple respect for both these characters and their faith, I cannot write them.

Sana and (probably) Yousef are muslims, and their faith has certain rules and expectations about physical touching and intimacy between men and women, especially premarital. I had an important - and educating! - conversation about this topic with @ohstarsishalldefy (as I’m not muslim myself) and she told me about islam’s ways and rules regarding premarital relations. Kissing and “traditional” western dating is kind of off-limits, and I have no doubt that Sana, as a devoted muslim - who even stated that her faith indeed is stronger than her want to get drunk and hook up - wouldn’t want to follow these rules. And I have no intention nor desire to change or twist that.

Now, I do hope and believe in this couple and truly wish they will have a future - and I know that writing their romance will be jus as fun still! - but I will not brush off their faith for my writing or bend their beliefs in order to make my fan fiction “better”. Islam is an important part of both Yousef and Sana’s life, and I support and admire that in every way possible.

I really, really hope you back me up on this and won’t be disappointed in my decision :) xx anna

I feel like ranting, so I'm going to rant at you if that's allowed? I was at a con last august, sitting in the con suite, chatting away with two nice ladies and a nice but slightly overbearing guy. The youngest of the other three was probably at least ten years older than me. I managed to casually mentioned my religion. 1/?

“The one lady asked what it was, and before I even could open my mouth again the other two were explaining it in ways I didn’t see as fully true, citing one or two other friends, and I couldn’t get a word in edgewise. So, I kept trying to speak and kept getting talked over, until the conversation moved on and it would’ve been rude to bring it up again. 2/?

“I was right there, and I’ve grown up in the religion they were trying to describe, but because I was 17, and happened to admit that I might not be the be-all-end-all for asking questions, my input was basically denied.  And even believing that all religions hold a portion of the truth doesn’t stop hearing my religion described as “Unitarianism if it had come from an Islamic perspective” from stinging way more than it should’ve. 3/3 Thanks for the rant, I guess you can delete these if you want.”

UGH HUMANS.

Some people just do not want to hear anything from people Who Do Not Have The Life Experience To Ride This Ride.  And it’s infuriating and shitty and does not get any less so with time, unfortunately.

(Example: I lost the ability to stay awake for twenty-four hours without serious negative consequences when I was sixteen, which was earlier than most of my friends.  I complained about this to my gaming group, at which point my forty-five year old GM mocked me so hard that it still stings.  “You don’t know about getting old,” he said.  Yeah, well, I knew I had lost something because of time, and that was enough for me.)

Those people were shits.  I am sorry you encountered shits.  It will happen again.  Sometimes age is a valid measure of things–but more often, it’s what you’ve experienced/learned.  I know eighteen year olds who get to explain pregnancy; I still don’t.  Listen to people’s experiences.  When people won’t listen to yours, remember: they are shits, and you can walk away.
