“O PROPHET! TELL YOUR WIVES AND YOUR DAUGHTERS AND THE WOMEN OF THE BELIEVERS TO DRAW THEIR CLOAKS (VEILS) ALL OVER THEIR BODIES (I.E. SCREEN THEMSELVES COMPLETELY EXCEPT THE EYES OR ONE EYE TO SEE THE WAY). THAT WILL BE BETTER, THAT THEY SHOULD BE KNOWN (AS FREE RESPECTABLE WOMEN) SO AS NOT TO BE ANNOYED. AND ALLAAH IS EVER OFT‑FORGIVING, MOST MERCIFUL” [AL-AHZAAB 33:59] ..................... I chose to wear the hijab for Allah, no one else. The decision was easy, the practice was hard. This is something many Muslim women don't want to discuss and fear that if they do give honest, true accounts that somehow makes them a bad Muslim. It doesn't. Allah swt puts barakah in your struggle especially if the struggle is for Him and Him alone. ..................... As a Muslimah hijab is my legacy, hijab is my destiny. Hijab is my marker to the world to say, here I am. A Muslim woman, unapologetic in the uniform that Allah swt bestowed on me. You wear what you like but I wear what Allah swt likes. Not everyone is at this point in their journey and I pray Allah swt makes it easy for you, Ameen.
You may not think your hijab is a big deal but there may be a sister looking at you thinking, "I hope to be like her one day. Firm in her obligations and proud of her legacy." Never underestimate the power and influence you have as a Muslim woman. The reason they try and oppress us is because they know how truly powerful and strong our Creator has made us, alhamdulillah. ............. You can read the full article over on christaljoan.com

QUOTE TAKEN FROM MY "WHY DIDN'T MUSLIMS ASK ME THESE 5 THINGS" ARTICLE.

In hindsight, there's a lot I wish Muslims would have asked me when I became Muslim especially in the first year. Not just about how I was getting on with the prayer, going to the mosque, hijab and things like that. Ultimately, I just wanted to connect with people.

I wanted a mentor that I could ask any question no matter how big or small. That's what inspired me to start the blog and ultimately go into coaching new Muslims. .................... The Prophet (saw) KNEW how to give tarbiyyah to new Muslims. He (saw) knew it wasn't just a one time thing or something that they only needed at the beginning of their journey but throughout. That's why so many Sahabah used to visit him and sit outside his door to ask questions day and night. He made himself available to the people in a way we could only imagine.
I hope the same will become of my coaching insha Allah. That sisters will feel comfortable coming to me with their worries and fears knowing that they will be loved and nurtured according to the Qur'an and Sunnah. .................... Islam started off a strange thing and again will become strange to the people, but that doesn't mean we have to become STRANGERS. .................... Spread the message far and wide, if you know any new Muslim sisters that need support please get them to email me at christal@christaljoan.com.
Muhammad Ali (may Allah swt have mercy on him) said "Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth."
So let's all be of service to each other insha Allah .............

“There is nothing that befalls a believer, not even a thorn that pricks him, but Allah will record a hasanah (good deed) for him thereby, or erase from him a sin.” Muslim ............ HARDSHIPS ARE A BLESSING
When we hit hard times, we often ask ourselves why. Why we're on the situation we're in. Why we didn't do things differently.

I've been there too. During my time as a Muslim, before I understood qadr (pre-destination) and the will of Allah swt I used to ask the same questions. So many sleepless nights pondering over those questions. Until I started to reverse those questions on myself.

Why did Allah want me in the situation I was in? Why did I need this lesson, whatever it may be? ............. 3 reasons why we experience hardship are:
1. Allah wants to provide us with taqwa
2. Allah tests us to increase us in rank because He loves us
3. Allah wants to remove our sins .............

Now THAT is some #MondayMotivation 😂😂😂

"You are worth much more than a commodity that is sexual." As a mother of both a son and daughter (insha Allah) this speaks VOLUMES to me.

We have to teach our son's to treat women as our beloved Prophet saw did and we must teach our daughters at act like the greatest women of all time. It's not unrealistic, it's not too much of a burden and we can do it!

Don't settle for girlfriends/boyfriends and illicit relations because of the society we live in. Think of the society of the Prophet saw when he came with his noble message. Men were divorcing left right and centre, committing zina and burying their daughters alive. Women were openly sexual, attracting men and the likes.
We can do this brothers and sisters but we MUST do it together insha Allah.

This popped up on my Facebook as a #throwbackthursday from when my blog was called ChristalBlogs just as I was listening to the morning adhkar.

Alhamdulillah ala kulli haal. Allah is definitely Most Merciful, Most Gracious 💜

If you know me then you know that Surah Ibrahim ayah 9 is like a life mantra to me!

Whenever I feel down or when life's sucking me dry, I think of the Prophets (as), I think of their trials, I think about the times that Allah swt has seen me through and I just have to say ALHAMDULILLAH.

Those are the moments of ease that come with the hardship. Those are the moments of respite we should live for insha Allah.

Switching to halal can be confusing for reverts or even born Muslims who aren't familiar with it as a concept.

Review of this coming soon insha Allah!
