I know it’s been a long time since I last blogged.I have been busy and I have my finals next week. But now to share my thoughts…
There are sooo many misconceptions about Islam and Muslim women that I decided to highlight in the coming few blogs..
As a covered and headscarf wearing Muslim woman myself I find it amazing that Muslim woman dresses generate sooo much controversy. I found why it is so from my non-muslim friend and she said she thinks we are oppressed!! That’s not true at all!! She asked me why I wear it? I said for dignity and respect. I could see she was shocked at my answer.Well, she was European. That was when I understood the need for Muslims to open up about their religion and share it ..otherwise people will never understand why we do certain things differently.
So, if you have any questions on Islam and Muslims, you can just comment on this blog and I will be more than happy to respond to you.
Now, to share something I felt personally.
I remember when I was not married and I was reading the Quran I just could not understand why the believing men get beautiful virgins in paradise and the believing women do not get something similar(I mean handsome males) apart from other luxuries that a women gets(being the most beautiful,breathtaking clothes,jewels etc.)
It was only after I got married(August 2014) I really understood the verse and was really in awe of God’s divine judgement. God created us and He knows better than anyone what men and women really want. That’s when I knew I do not want any other man other than my husband in paradise and as for my husband I always pray for him that he should get the most beautiful virgins.
This world is a test for the hereafter. What a man really wants is a beautiful woman and what a woman really wants is to be the most beautiful,and have flawless skin, hair and beauty, beautiful clothes, shoes, bags, perfume and jewelry(diamonds, gold, precious stones.)
So God promises that to his believing men and women that if they are good and true , they will get all that they desire for in the hereafter.
I also understood that why is God repeatedly promising beautiful women for men in the Quran, it is because the greatest weakness of men is a woman and He promises this to men who do not commit adultery and are good and kind to their wives etc.
That is why we Muslim women pray for our husbands to get these beautiful women because they are sooo good,kind and faithful and the most amazing husbands ever. Alhamdulillah!!(All Praise Be To God)
That’s all for this blog!
Assalamu Alaikum!(May Peace Be On You)
