Religious or Nonreligious? Muslim girls nowadays..


Its great when a Muslim girl starts wearing a hijab after years of being non religious, but as soon as a girl takes off her hijab and becomes “Americanized” with the short shorts and drinks in her hand, that’s when i lose respect.

I’ve seen many girls nowadays, who USED to wear hijabs. Now that they are in college they forget their religion. Hijabs gone, and the short dresses are out.

Its one thing when a girl actually starts becoming religious, and gets attached to her religion. But how do you forget it later?

Taking off the hijabs for some occasions are actually okay. But taking them off, to party and drink, which is both haram, and a disgrace.

If you wear one, and you want to party and drink, don’t pretend to wear one, and take it off as soon as the party starts. Put the drink down, put on some clothes that cover your body, and walk away.

Although, those who choose not to follow the path of Islam anymore, don’t follow it, but don’t go back to being religious when you turned your back on it the first time. Just saying.

Queens Woman Killed While Crossing the Street

Image taken from NY1 news


On Saturday evening, girl was walking with her mother on Hillside Ave, Jamaica. The girl walked ahead of her mom and left her behind while they were crossing the street. The daughter made it to the other side, while her mom was still walking behind. And just in a few seconds, a Nassau-County bus made a sharp turn and hit her mom before she walked all the way through. The daughter didn’t realize till after. Her mom died at the scene. Always be careful when crossing the street. One second can change your whole life. Although I don’t know who they are, my prayers go to the Bengali girl and her family. It hurts to even hear a story of anyone’s death. As they say in Islamic religion after someone’s death: Inna lillahi Wa inna ilaihi Rajioon.

Eid Prayer

By Sabreena


By Sabreena


Today was the holy day of Eid-al-Fitr. A muslim holiday which is celebrated after 30 days of fast also known as Ramadan. Ramadan is fasting for Mercy, Forgiveness, and Salvation for 30, sometimes 29 days. Fasting lasts from sunrise to sunset. During fasting, one cannot eat, drink, or smoke. After a daily fast, one breaks his fast during Iftar time, or feast.

During Eid, many people travel to the Mosque to pray. Where I live, there are too many people around the area to fit in one Mosque. So they decided to hold the prayer to the nearest High School’s field. There were as many as a thousand people in one field. Maybe even more.
