Assalam o Alaikum, I was wondering... I always dressed modestly, even before I came to know truth. I do wear hijab (when I am able to)... My skirt is always to the ankle and sleeves are never short... but, should I cover my feet or is wearing flip flops ok? And should the sleeves be all the way to the wrist, or is below the elbow acceptable? Please help me on this. You sister, Sweetoo ALLAH AKBAR
Assalam Alaikum friends, I have told my father that I a muslim and that I wear hijab..he says that it is an embarresment to him.. I want to wear hijab everyplace I go, but in a small town, some former christan friend will see me, (I am sure of it) and ask me questions about me being muslim.
How do I respond to "Why are you muslim.." "You know Islam isn't truth..Christan is truth..", Your not coming to church anymore?"...
I don't want to be rude, but I don't want to get in a religious debate either. I already know what they are going to say to me if they see me in hijab. No matter what I say, I know that they will think of me as being deceived and not having truth...maybe even being possessed. I know how they think.. I don't want to give them a chance to insult Allah and Mohammad pbuh.. Do I just ignore these people and be rude or what?? any suggestions... ALLAH AKBAR
Assalam Alaikum, Sisters, is there any one in the New Orleans or Baton Rouge,LA area? I am surrounded by christans here and I need some support. I don't know and I don't have any muslimah friends here. If there is anyone out there who is a local muslimah and would like to befriend me, please let me know..Your sister in Islam, Sweetoo
im in a similar situation as well.. I just converted to Islam.. and no intetion of going back because that would make me a disbeliever, and I truly feel that Islam is the best religion. My parents basically my whole life have questioned of God's existence.. my father says that religion is for the weak, for people afraid of death. Something had to have created all of this, and I think God. My views are different of my family.. they are basically atheist? They do feel that there is something bigger than all of us, but they dont even practice any religion... Telling them is probably going to be very difficult, i dont intend on for awhile.. but, how i see it is.. it is better to believe than disbelieve, and that Islam involves true sacrifices.. and that your religion is a part of you but that does not change the fact that you are your father's daughter, that you are the same person, and that you still love him the same and that he should too... Best wishes to you. God bless. and remember that God is forgiving..
