Just because...

mood: Happy the weekend is here. :)))) 
craving: spending time with family.  It's Thursday, the weekend.

Salam Alikom (Peace be with you)  to all my Muslim readers and Hello to all my non-Muslim readers. It's the beginning of the weekend. YAY! I pray that all of y'all have a blessed weekend. 

Just because I am a Muslim woman, doesn't mean I don't have feelings.
Just because I am married to an Arab man, doesn't mean I am oppressed.
Just because I am Muslim, doesn't mean I gave up my culture.
Just because I pray to Allah, doesn't mean I pray to a different God than the Jews or Christians.
Just because I am Muslim, doesn't mean I am a terrorist.

Final whisperThis hadeeth was narrated by Muslim (145) from Abu Hurayrah who said: The Messenger of Allah (God) (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Islam began as something strange and will revert to being strange as it began, so give glad tidings to the strangers.”

Aww Sis - excellent and lovely post. Did someone change their theme/background? Hehe. I love it! This brought a smile on my face - even though I'm stressed and not feeling too well at the moment.

Yes, I love that hadith - not too many true strangers around, but may Allah (swt) make us one of them. Ameen.

Lots of love to ya Sis! <3
