Well I have been gone for a minute or so. I forgot my password so I didn't bother for a while and then it just came to me. I have been working on a new clothing website (for us fashionable muslimah). Working on some poetry and etc. My new venture is I would like to work on some children books. I have a daughter who is almost seven and loves the cheetah girls and Cinderella stories. So I would like to write about some young Muslim girls doing interesting things or a Muslim princess kind of story. I am sorry but don't comment and tell me there's Jasmine from Disney. The girl wears no scarf and her belly is hanging out. That's attractive to little girls and with all the other things out there it's hard finding something Islamic that she would love the same way. Although I embrace the hijab and love wearing it. My daughter who is only six does not wear it now (she does not have to right now) but being the only Muslim in her school covered does not appeal to her. There are a few other Muslims but they do not cover and neither do their parents. Where I grew up I would always see plenty of Muslims in passing, in my school, on there train. I mean I lived in New York City where there was a vast amount of cultures so no one really stared at me weird. Except during traveling times (rest stops) I will blog on that later.If there are any other Muslim parents dealing with the same issues hit me up. I would love to hear your suggestions

Walking the Straight Path

Walking the straight path
trying to find my way
I try every day
But it's hard
I try as soon as the sun comes up
But as it goes down I lose my way again

I will try again tomorrow
But I know it will just be the same
I need someone to guide me
To show me the way
I can't do it alone

I need someone to walk next to me
Not in the front or the back
But by my side
To guide me along the way
So when I fall off they pull me right back on the straight path

The sun has come up again
I will try to walk the straight path
And find help along the way
Someone by my side
To walk the straight path with me

To My Muslimahs,

I was just wondering what are some of the stupidest things people have asked you about your Hijab? Some people make me so upset with their ignorance. You would think in this day and time that educated people would know better; but they don't. I mean some people ask ignorant questions but some are curious and some are funny. Well I am going to share a few things that people have actually asked me;

First Question: Are you hot in that thing?
Like in 90 to 95 degrees weather they are not hot. Duh...Actually I am slight bit cooler because the sun is not directly on my back, legs, belly and half my rear. But OfCourse I am polite and just say NO.

Okay and my second favorite: Do you eveeer take that off your head?
First thing that comes to mind is Forever, ever. LOL. Again, I'd like to say I would be very funky if I did not atleast take it to wash it or me but instead I bite my tongue

My worst: Is there anything ticking under there? I said WHAT. I guess that and the look on my face made him walk quickly away.

But the most Funniest I ever got is when an old man came to me in a department store ask me if I just wash my hair because I had a scarf on. The funny part is that grampa was sincere. You all ways tell people are sincere or just ignorant. The reason he approach me was I was standing near the door and it was cold outside. And thought I would catch a draft with my hair all wet. LOL.

So I encourage you to post your worst, best, or funniest. Include your responses and your feeling.
Peace Sisters
