Bism Illah wa as salaamu alaikum.
Alhamdu l'Illah! A space of my own for my thoughts, my ideas, my extremism to be voiced. This is big, and with it comes a big responsibility, for in expressing my thoughts and inner struggles, I must not cross the line. What I mean, and you can consider this a clear disclaimer, is that when I write about things I wrestle with in my mind and heart, I am not issuing any edicts - no fatwas-a-la-Mai. I'm simply stating how I think and how I perceive things.
I'm ALL about giving it ALL over to Allah and playing it safe by getting back to the lifestyle, etiquette, practices, and manners of the Prophet Muhammad, salla Allahu alayhi wa sallam. I'm not the sister who says, "Hey, just one children's movie with some music can't hurt." I'm the sister who says, "If it contains haram, then it there is no benefit to outweigh that." Yes, I'm tough...and it gets hard at times because those around me aren't on the same page in real life. But hey...that's what my bloggie blog is all about: Mai to the extreme!
Fi amaan Illah.
