Liberty

You look at me and call me oppressed,
Simply because of the way I’m dressed,

You know me not for what’s inside,
You judge the clothing I wear with pride
My body’s not for your eyes to hold,
You must speak to my mind,

Not my feminine mold,
I’m an individual,

I’m no mans slave,
It’s Allahs pleasure that I only crave
I have a voice so I will be heard,
For in my heart I carry His word,
“O ye women,

Wrap close your cloak,
So you won’t be bothered by ignorant folk
Man doesn’t tell me to dress this way,
It’s a Law from God that I obey,
Oppressed is something I’m truly NOT,
For liberation is what I’ve got
It was given to me many years ago,
With the right to prosper,

The right to grow
I can climb moutains or cross the seas,
Expand my mind in all degrees
For God Himself gave us LIB-ER-TY
When He sent Islam,
To You and Me…

Hijab Patterns 

As Salam Alikum readers 

Below are some links from YouTube for sewing your own hijab patterns, 

When it comes to wearing hijab I personally prefer one piece pull on and go hijabs as I am busy with small children and dislike pins as I always seem to poke myself with them .

The patterns are free on YouTube so I’m sharing a few.

And

And

Enjoy will in sha Allah post other patterns for Islamic clothing soon 

If you will wear Hijab you will not get Married.

If you will wear Hijab you will not get any attention

And the boys will like your classmate,

Who is without a Hijab.

If you will wear Hijab you will not get Job.

If you will wear Hijab people will not call you Beautiful.

If you will wear Hijab your Friends will Leave you.

If you will wear Hijab you will Look Old.

If you will wear Hijab you will be considered Out Dated.

WHAT ELSE DOES THE SHAITAN WHISPERS IN YOUR EARS, MY SISTERS??

Surely, Shaitan (Satan) is an enemy to you, so take him as an enemy.

He only invites his followers that they may become the dwellers of the blazing Fire” (Faatir 35:6)

A women is so much more beautiful when she is modest.

She is respected, and her body is not flesh to be leered at.

She has style, good character and etiquette.

She’s not seen for her shape but for her mind.

Her true essence is shown,

And she acknowledges her value and importance as a woman.

Modesty is beauty.. …………..

Ya Allah!

I turn to you and ask you to grant me a spouse that will lead me

To Jannah and please make me the same for him ..

Ameen ya Allaah

Muslim Women

I am a Muslim woman
Feel free to ask me why
When I walk
I walk with dignity
When I speak
I do not lie

I am a Muslim woman
Not all of me you’ll see
But what you should appreciate
Is that the choice I make is free

I’m not plagued with depression
I’m neither cheated nor abused
I don’t envy other women
And I’m certainly not confused

Note, I speak perfect English
I’m majoring in Linguistics
So you need not speak slowly

I run my own small business
Every cent I earn is mine
I drive my Chevy to school & work
And no, that’s not a crime!

You often stare as I walk by
You don’t understand my veil
But peace and power I have found
As I am equal to any male!

I am a Muslim woman
So please don’t pity me
For God has guided me to truth
And now I’m finally free!

ME AND MY HIJAB

ME AND MY HIJAB
You are so sadly understood
You draw so much attention to yourself
You have comforted me
As simple as you are,
You brought greatness with you.
You make me look different,
Cause me to stand out in a crowd
BUT YOU DO!
And for this I thank you.
You guard my modesty,
You make me unique
You make me lose my vanity,
And instill my humility.
You enjoin on me good
You help me to be strong
You cause me to defy convention
You make others think that for some reason
I have something to proclaim
You make me search for something
Deeper than fortune and fame
You keep my life in constant
In times of uncertainty and change.
You help me to believe
You open my eyes to the lies and deceit.
You teach me to be kind,
And never to cheat.
You soar in the wind with an elegance and charm
You say to the people, “This lady is a flag-bearer of Islam”
You tell me to pray
Wherever I may be.
You fill me with confidence,
You set me free
You make some people smile,
While you fill others with contempt.
You help me to know who is a true friend
You keep me in the company
Of those who truly repent.
You are my shield as I walk
Through the battlefield of life.
You protect me from evil and save me from strife
You identify my inner beauty for everyone to see
You say, “She’s got a lot of character to be seen with me”
You shelter me from the burning sun.
You save me from the cursed one
You protect me from those in whose hearts there is a disease
You continue to dignify my life with bounties like these
You are a faithful companion wherever I go.
You speak of a place with gardens underneath which rivers flow
Yes, you are just a simple piece of cloth which I wear everyday,
But you represent more good in my life
Than I have ink to say!
