WARNING: Wearing the Niqab wipes out personality

Peace be with you السلام عليكم

Wearing the niqab might wipe out your personality according to Prime Minister Ahmed Nazif

What?! WOW. I didn't realized that the niqab had mystical powers that immediately removes all shreds of individuality once its put on. WOW. I think niqabs should come packaged with a warning like cigarettes and alcohol do. Men should really stick to politics and leave what we wear or not wear alone. The economy is in shambles everywhere but lets focus on the small group of women who actually wear niqab. HOW they got elected is beyond me.

WARNING: Niqab dangerous to self esteem and your personality.

The Jewish Burqa: The Frumka

In the name of Allah, compassionate & merciful بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ
Peace be with you السلام عليكم

Interesting video, apparently there is a trend among the Jewish community with the burqa. MashaAllah. If they want to wear it I support them, I believe that women should wear or NOT wear whatever they want.

Interesting video

I was moderating one of my many facebook pages and this video was passed along. I am still listening to it but again I am still in awe of non Muslim women wearing the hijab. Up until a couple of months ago when I started getting involved in blogging I didn't know that other women covered up. I knew Jewish and Christian women were told to cover but people interpret it and practice it their own way I didn't realize they covered almost exactly like us and even used the same terminology. MashaAllah for them as I find hijab a beautiful aspect of Islam and if they want to adopt it so be it. Who am I to judge?

I also like how she expresses herself and it makes SO much sense. People will ALWAYS find an excuse to victimize others. Whether it is through religion, science (the Bronx zoo once had a black man caged as an exhibit), culture, childhood traumas or what have you. So far I like the video, enjoy.

I have been wondering

So I was thinking of taking a daily picture of what I wear and post it on my blog. The thing is though that I am a niqabi so I wonder if Hijab Life is the right place to do it or if I should start an additional blog for it. I realized that because I am a mom of a toddler I dress messy both indoors and out doors and that should NOT be an excuse.

I feel that we give dawah in many ways and having a messy exterior makes your job a little harder. I also noticed I am happier when am presentable. I want to share and get feedback as well as having fun with my wardrobe again. Last time that happened I was a non Muslim reveling in my abs. Now am kinda on the pudgy side but not for long ladies! not for long!

I still haven't made up my mind so any suggestions would be awesome

Dear Chucks

I always wanted to wear my chucks with a blazer. I own ONE awesome blazer but it just doesn't fit right. Probably going to put it up for sale on HijabSwappers. I bought it for a job interview (pant suit) but the blazer didn't fit right but the pants were awesome.

Thinking of Spring

If I had the guts to wear colors this is what I would wear. I usually always end up in dark colors but that is because of laundry issues. nuff said. Also my community is big on the whole "looking like crows " bit but, whatever, to each their own. One day I tell you, I will wear this. (inshaAllah and if I grow a pair) ;)

Enjoy, watcha think
