Muslim Eve\’s Ramblings

August 17, 2006

Shame on us

Filed under: Muslim Life — Me2 @ 7:57 pm

I’ve been inspired by some blogs I red today,, all
belong to muslims from other countries but arab ones,,, most of them
transfared into Islam,, I mean they were not born as muslims.In fact, this isn’t the first time to think & wonder about
their life, but having a 24 net connection gave me the chance to
search, discover & to be closer to them,, while I started to think
about my life & how to be stronger to face challanges,, but after
reading those blogs I wanted to talk to them face to face to tell them

Assalamu Alikom
Dear Brothers & Sisters..

I don’t know how to describe my feelings for
you,, I don’t know how to show you how much I’m proud of you,, I don’t
think that words can explain to you how great you’re & how much we
should feel ashamed of ourselves in here.People here are leaving Islam & transfering to other religions
or puting religion aside & forgeting about it, girls say wearing
hijab is a matter of freedom & it’s not
a must!!!! While you’re
facing the world with your prayers & hijab & facing the
challanges in your world calmly with a smile.. without complaining.

Now if someone asked me about the miracles of Allah,, I’ll tell him
to read your blogs, to discover muslims living out there facing trouble
all the time without fear & with no regret.

We’re so stupid to think that we’re going to Heaven just because we’re
I’m wondering,, what have we done to avoid Hell??? Besmellah
mashaallah…. I’m sure that there is a better heaven for you & you
know what…

  1. Since when did Mona Bauwens become a representative of Islam or Muslims. Another case of well-to-do secular Arab socialites pretending to be patrons of a community they dont belong to.

  2. I found the image I put here by accident ,, as you can see it’s old article, I don’t know who’s (Mona Bauwens), but I don’t have to know her to understand that she’s not the right example for the muslim woman.
    This’s the problem of the western media,, they offer readers/watchers some who calims to be muslims while they got nothing to do with Islam
    as sister Izzy Mo was talking before about in her post:

    In the book world, when it comes to Islam and Muslims, there is a huge gap. At the major bookstores, there are books written by non-Muslim writers. Now, this is okay if it is John Esposito, Karen Armstrong or Anne Marie Schimmel. But most of the time it is jobs by journalists (who don’t know arabic) or Muslim women who have issues with Islam and Muslims

  3. Salaam alaikum,

    Subhan’Allah, this is too sad. But you know what’s sadder. Non-Muslims were doing more to defend her right to wear jilbab than some of the Muslims. As Dr. Max said, Ms. Dana is a well-to-do lady with no connection to the Muslim community. As for folks leaving Islam, they leave because they can’t handle the demands of a God-fearing life. They want to follow their egos. But we wonder why when we abandon Allah’s deen that so many horrible things have fallen on the umma. Well, we abandoned Him so what do we expect? Allah is Just but that doesn’t mean we can do what we want and always expect mercy.

  4. Alikom Elsalam sister Izzy:
    You reached the exact point I was talkin about
    it’s very sad that people in here don’t understand

  5. Mona Bauwens is Jaweed Al Ghussein’s Daughter. former minister of finance for the PLO and Chairman of the Palestine National Fund.

    Jaweed Al Ghussein is my uncle, Mona Bauwens is my cousin.
    Mona is a very intelligent woman, her point was only to benefit the women of islam.

  6. if u say no 2 the covering then don’t be a muslim

    Comment by jabed miah — April 4, 2008 @ 1:12 am

  7. covering is not what makes a woman a muslim… or if u believe in it doesnt make u a muslim…and vice versa… only god can judge who is muslim..

    however, while i do respect ur your cousin Yacoub, her point doesn’t really benefit the women of islam but does just the opposite…just because we choose to wear hijab does not make us oppressed…and yes in the middle east there is much corrupt power and where hijab is wrongfully forced (hijab should be a choice…yes in islam we must wear it but it is up to the woman to wear it or not, to follow islam in this retrospect or not)…

    anyhow, there is nothing wrong with covering the hair, u see nuns doing it, same with jewish women… is it really that christian and jewish men are afraid of losing their power that they force these women to cover up?

  8. Ok number one
    this does not make sense
    number 2 yes we go to heaven because were muslims
    but not only for that a muslim does various things to become a muslim
    How dare you critisize our religion .and as a muslim how could you say no to covering up?
    that is not what muslims say or do , so then you wouldnt be a muslim , yes we have to cover up
    have you ever seen a picture with Mary in swim suites?
    You can still go to heaven being a muslim and not wearing hijab.
    but when you do , you do much less to go to heaven then not wearing hijab
    but you still get the punishment not wearing hijab

  9. Dear Omayma,
    Maybe you need to read my article again to understand what I mean
    you didn’t get my point at all & got the opposite
    if you read arabic I’ll translate it to you

  10. I happened to come across your blog and i want to congratulate you for being so truthful in your words :). What you said was so so true and more muslims need to realize that islam is a gift, not something to be ashamed of…I totally agree with the pride you feel towards these new reverts that have accepted islam
    Jazakallah khair 🙂

    Islam means copying
    what Prophet(P.B.H) teach us

  14. In The Name of Allah

    As an Iranian and Muslim woman I am proud of Hijab which has given me dignity and respect and high self confidence.Hijab is one of the most important orders presented in Holy Qoran in the Nur surate.

    God bless all who follow the ORDERS of Allah.
