Why hijabis are strong

Each day we have to face discrimination, stares, and bold comments thrown at us. We have to stand our ground yet maintain modesty. We have to fight for ourselves and for each other.

I personally have not been a victim yet because of my hijab. But the world keeps getting worse and worse as the days go by.

We have to be strong for ourselves , for each other , and for the little girls looking up to us. You don’t want the little girls to see us hating to put on a hijab or niqab. You don’t want the little girls to hear us saying we wish we didn’t have to wear it.

We wear it for one purpose and only one purpose: to please our Creator. None of us are perfect. Some Muslim sisters don’t even wear hijab for fear of being harassed. If someone makes you feel ashamed because of your religion, you’re only letting them win by not wearing hijab. Don’t ever be afraid to wear the hijab or niqab because of someone (who’s irrelevant). You wear it because you serve a wonderful and merciful God.

A letter to Atheists

Who created you? Do not say your mother and father, but if you are certain of that, then who created them? Your grandparents, right …well who created them? And so on and so forth.

Who created the trees, the mountains, the sea and all its creatures? Who created all the layers of the earth? Who placed the stars in the sky? Who programmed all of our organs? Who programmed our heart to continuously pump blood, our lungs to continuously need oxygen, and our brain to process information? Yes that is their function, but who gave them that function? 

God. But you might be thinking which god.

Allah is the one and only god, the creator of the heavens and the earth. He gives you life, will cause you to die, and will bring you to life again in the hereafter.

Allah made everything possible. You believe in the Big Bang theory but you should believe in the one who caused it to explode. Nothing on earth or in the universe is just a coincidence. This was all in Allah’s plan. 

How can you explain DNA? There are literally instructions inside our body on how to create another person. How do baby sea turtles know to go back into the ocean once they hatch? How do caterpillars know how to build themselves a cocoon? It is Allah who programmed all of this. 

Allah is not comparable to anyone or anything else. Allah does not have a son or any partners that would be in relation to him. He is one. Comparing a person to Allah is underestimating Allah’s power. He created everything, he is not like his creation. If he were, that would take away from his uniqueness. He can not be a person. People have to eat, drink, sleep, and use the bathroom. Allah does not need to do those things for if he did, he wouldn’t be Allah. 

He is all knowing and most merciful. He hears and sees all that you do, and only you will be accountable for your actions whether they be good or bad. So it’s best that you do good. Allah hopes we obey him so we can spend an eternity in heaven. You don’t want to spend an eternity boiling in the blazing fire do you? Another question is why would Allah punish us by sending us to hell for eternity? Well what would you expect? He gave you a life long journey to search for him and turn to him and obey him. You did the opposite, so why do you think you should be rewarded?
