Living through the eyes of rose-tinted glasses ~A sisterly reminder ~
May Allah guide us on our journey
to become true muslimahs and strive as mujahidah fiisabiilillaah………
My beloved sisters,
Let’s struggle to make our life bloom beautifully
enriching our glow with drops of love,
spreading our fragrance of humility, modesty and decency
as the true beauty of a true muslimah is not seen by eyes
but is felt by the heart
as the quality of being pleasing
does not seem to lie only in the physical feature of a woman.
In reality true beauty of a true muslimah goes beyond that.
The struggle to beautify ourselves externally
with the worldly colours without the sense of humility, modesty and decency
will only cause the internal colours of a muslimah to fade away……………
My beloved sisters,
Life is full of challenges
and not all roses,
but look at the positive side of each trials Allah make us go through.
so let’s look at life through the eyes of rose-tinted glasses
in our struggle to be true muslimahs
as the values gained will be beyond worldly purpose.
When the going gets tough, our dreams scattered,
there is always a way out
if we live through the eyes of rose-tinted glasses,
Ana uhibbukunna fillah ya akhawaatee
With love and duas always

*My special thanks to my beloved sister an-necim
for giving me the inspiration to write this sisterly reminder for the sake of Allah*
“And say to the believing women that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty; that they should not display their beauty and ornaments except what must ordinarily appear thereof; that they should draw their veils over their bosoms and not display their beauty except to their husbands, their fathers, their husbands’ fathers, their sons, their husbands’ sons, their brothers, or their brothers’ sons or their sisters’ sons, or their women or the servants whom their right hands possess, or male servants free of physical needs, or small children who have no sense of the shame of sex, and that they should not strike their feet in order to draw attention to their hidden ornaments. And O you Believers, turn you all together towards Allah, that you may attain Bliss.” (Al Quran 24:31).
" ...Then do you believe in a part of the Scripture and reject the rest? Then what is the recompense of those who do so among you, except disgrace in the life of this world, and on the Day of Resurrection they shall be consigned to the most grievous torment. And Allah is not unaware of what you do."(Al Quran 2:85)
“……And seek forgiveness of Allah. Verily, Allah is Oft- Forgiving, Most-Merciful.”(Al-Quran73:20)
