Growing up in Afghanistan, the biggest thing we craved as a female youth was independence and education- but instead we got death or marriage. Your generation has the education and independence they need to thrive, but their thirst for marriage makes them take it for granted. Never give men importance. Conquer your youth and stay true to becoming the woman you want to be- because you don’t need a man to do so.

What are the pros and cons of wearing a Niqab while a college student? I'm thinking of wearing a niqab. Thank you! :) Hope you get better inshallah, may Allah bless you and your family

In my opinion I don’t think there are any serious cons to wearing niqaab to college. There is that one problem where people will stay away from you lol so you’re gonna have to make the effort to talk to people and let them feel “comfortable” around you. But not everyone feels uncomfortable/intimidated with niqaabis. And as for pros, wearing the niqaab does protect you from fitnah. Not 100 percently because you do gotta put in the effort too. I feel like I get more respect with the niqaab than I did with just hijaab. [Like I even had a yahudi boy let me go in the classroom before him. He was just like go ahead. lmao] So theres that pro too. Mainly, I wore niqaab because I didn’t wanna fall into fitnah and I think since we go to mixed colleges/unis that should be our biggest concern [maybe there are other bigger concerns just as this one but this is all I could think of right now]. Oh, and the biggest pro would be that we are being rewarded by Allaah for doing it for His sake. :) .. I hope I make sense? /:

JazakiAllaahu khayr :)

This is my first personal post on tumblr and it has to be for my home.  Asalam-alaiqum,  I am Sahar Wani from India, umm lemme do that again. I am Sahar Wani from the ‘Disputed land of India’ - KASHMIR (90% Muslim state).  I don’t think many people on tumblr must have heard about it, but you could google it 👆 The above picture is of my land which was 10 days back and is now.  We were hit by the worst flood in India since the last 50 years. The loss of lives and infrastructure is not known as it’s been 7 days and people are still stranded over the roof tops crying for help.  The worst hit areas would be  Rajbagh, JawaharNagar and Indranagar.  I live in Rajbagh, I’ve been living there for 21 years now. And my parents were in the house when the floods came in. They we’re saved by my helper (May Allah bless him forever and forever).  Our country INDIA (I don’t think we belong to India but…) was offered international aid from the UN and the WHO, and various other countries for the hospitals and the relief camps. But our government which recently changed, Mr. Modi as the PM of the country (This man was responsible for killing 1000’s of Muslims in Gujrat) has denied all the International Aid from the following countries  UAE USA Germany Australia and many more.  And his reason for doing so was that ‘India’ can take care of the facilities needed.  Well, my father is there and I get to know what is happening everyday and he tells me everyday not even joking or lying, he tells me he has not seen even one government official on the ground level. Only the Cheif Minister of the state was in the air throwing Bananas from the chopper in the FLOOD WATER.  No relief camps have been set up by the Indian government or the state government. Whatever is helping my people is the people themselves.
This is an appeal to all the following Muslim brothers and sisters to spread this news and help us with the International Aid.  Cholera cases has started to come in and the state has run out of medicines. Women are given birth on the streets as the hospitals are submerged and that too without any pain killers. Babies are dying as there are no ventilators available. Elderly people need medical help but the doctors are not available. People are DYING.  They are killing the only muslim state in Kashmir.
We need help and awareness.  I stay in Melbourne and I’m doing it on the behalf of my whole state. No one from my state has access to Internet and the awareness needs to be spread. I’m collecting funds and sending back home every week.
We all prayed for Gaza, let us join hands for Kashmir.  Let’s show the world, no matter how much they try to break us Muslims nothing is gonna tear us apart.  Make it bigger than ALS, this is not for the research this for saving lives of people in the moment.
May Allah be with us and with you.  #PrayForKashmir #PrayForHumanity unicefbbconehumanrightswatch
