Important! Please Read!

Before exploring my blog, please remember this: If you came here to sincerely learn about Islam, please be open minded. Let go of any ill-feelings, ideas, thoughts, impressions, etc. that you may have against Islam or Muslims, due to the media or judging a "Muslim."

For better understanding of Islam and Muslims, I suggest reading the posts in order starting from August with the label Introduction to Islam (scroll down and look to the right for blog archive for proper order (from bottom to top)).

If you are interested in learning more about Islam and Muslims and would like additional materials/information, please leave a comment and I will try my best to help.

*Information that reads "Sisters" is for females ONLY. Likewise, anything reading "Brothers" is for males ONLY. Whether "sisters or brothers" is mentioned throughout my blog or on another site, please respect the rights of other people, both Muslims and non-Muslims.

**I do not intend to argue or debate with anyone, everyone is entitled to their own opinion and beliefs. If something is personal, disrespectful, or offensive, keep it to yourself. THINK BEFORE YOU ACT! (this includes what you type) If you do not wish to learn about Islam or Muslims, but just want to start trouble, do it somewhere else, not here! (or better, don't start trouble at all) Haters are NOT welcome here!

Please leave comments or questions you may have regarding Islam or Muslims. I will get to them as soon as possible. Enjoy your time here!

The Muslim Woman "Unveiled" by Izdehar Albowyha

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 man’s slave
It's Allah's 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 mountains 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!
