I think this deserves a standing ovation in front of the mainstream feminists who have constantly dehumanized and demeaned our existence as Muslim women by suggesting that we’re oppressed people. This deserves a standing ovation in front of the hundreds of men who have claimed that the religion of Islam does not tolerate liberated and free women (which is, of course, contrary to the teachings of Muhammad). This deserves recognition; Muslim women are participating in wrestling, swimming, shooting, and other physically demanding sports while wearing the physical hijab.
All of you are my role models; go kick me some misogynistic ass ladies!
“If Trayvon was a Muslim and walked into a masjid dressed the way he was when he got shot, how would you feel about him? If he walked into a masjid and there happened to be 2 dollars that were stolen or missing, who would be the first person that would be suspected of stealing? If he walked up to you and he was a Muslim and said I would like to propose to your daughter, what would you say to him?”
Think hard and long about this brothers and sisters. So much Racism within our cultures its easy to say ‘were not racist but—’.
A good Pakistani friend of mine were working at a Fundraiser when these two Jamaican boys came in and were playing with the Pony we had. She kicked them out of the fundraiser. Later on she reported it to the head organiser and said ‘I kicked these two black boys out. What were they even doing here? Its not like they are Muslim’.
I was shocked that she were saying this in front of me. I didnt say anything purely out of shock but it still stayed with me. I mean the fundraiser was for anyone. Muslim or non Muslim.
I’ve had many situations like this with my Desi friends. So please guys lets think twice before we speak.

Hakeem Olajuwon, the greatest blocker in NBA history, a 2x NBA Champion, 1x MVP, and 2x Finals MVP and also one of the greatest Defensive players ever in the NBA.
He was very well known for fasting yearly for Ramadan during the season. He was thought to play even better during Ramadan, a month in which Muslims abstain from drinking or eating.

Let’s clear up a couple of things:
The appropriate response to any guy who tries to hit on you randomly in the street is to yell “LOWER YOUR GAZE” and smack him across the face.
Organ donation and Blood donation is allowed in Islam.
As long as the organ is not a vital organ or will cause death.
I always thought organ donation was haraam!

No. White feminists. Stop.
Dear White Feminists™,
This is why nobody likes you.
Every decent human being on Earth.
I can’t even begin to stress how offensive it is to imply that, somehow, what I chose to wear is in direct correlation to my role in society and that by dressing a certain way, I don’t deserve the same role as someone who dresses differently.
Judging a woman by what she wears is the most naive, bigoted and shallow way to classify a woman. Our roles in society will not be compromised because of how we dress and neither will they defined by people who clearly have no understanding of the religion and the choices its followers make.
