“O mankind! We have created you from a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that you may know one another. Verily, the most honourable of you with Allaah is that believer who is the most God-conscious. Verily, Allah is All-Knowing, All-Aware.” (Qur’an, Al-Hujuraat: 13)
Last night I had the honor of attending one of the most refreshing, engaging and just overall intriguing sisters’ gathering that I’ve ever been to since being in Egypt! We were about a dozen women from 9 different nationalities: Germany, Poland, Greece, Iceland, Mexico, Singapore, Malaysia, America, Netherlands…and I’m telling you the vibe I got was just so positive and sisterly mashaa Allaah. I don’t know about you guys, but for me, it is so exciting to meet a person and just chat the time away about their culture, conversion story, and just life in general. I also love love love being in a room where just about every mom is speaking to their child in a different language! That’s how it was last night, subhaan Allaah! I’m getting chills just thinking about it, lol 🙂
I feel so blessed to have been a part of such a beautiful, colorful gathering. Even more blessed to be such a part of this beautiful deen. Alhamdu lillaahi rabb al-alameen!
Let’s stop judging each other and just love each other!
