Sorry bout the late reply Aliya and Kamran, i had to log off for a while.
I'm ok tho, just stressed cuz i have to decide what i want to study at uni by sept/nov time and i'm just strest about that. Nevamind tho.
Anyone who can view arabic channels, there's a programme now on Sharjah tv DON'T MISS IT
I dont understand why society cant just except people for who they are and who they want to be. I have a friend who is 11 and her family converted to Islam not long ago and i took her out today, just around town but i was furious that everyone stared at her and looked her up and down as if she was a disgrace.
It makes me so furious sometimes that some people are still amazed to see a muslim convert when Islam is the second largest religion in the world and still growing. Also, shes only young so she doesnt really understand whats going on around her.
But she will probably have to struggle with this issue for a long time yet, its a good thing thats shes a confident, strong girl and has Allah (swt) to guide her.
Sorry,about the venting but i have great admiration for all my friends and brothers and sisters who have turned to Islam and have to face this everyday.
Hope evryone is well
Its all ignorance and pride and it really ticks me off
I think a lot of people are really uneducated about Islam and thats where you get all the negative vibes. I agree that even muslims fall into that category because in todays society it is so easy for alot of us to get into the westernised way of living and dont really seek knowledge about Islam.
I dont know if this applies to anyone else but when i was younger you were just taught the Quran in mosque and other fard in Islam and then sent home. There was no teachings of the history of islam or the great women in islam. You were just told stories to be scared into reading your namaz. I guess that was one way to encourage namaz.
I just wish i leant to seek knowledge when i was younger and i still had the opportunity to go to Madarsa.
Now i'm stressed about deciding what to study at university when i would love to have just gone to Madarsa so i could pass my knowledge onto others.
I'm 21 btw. I'm not studying at the moment, i left 2 years ago after having a breakdown and then developing Bipolar. So eveything has been very mesed up. I'm hoping to do an access course in september to get me into studying and then go to uni. I'm not sue what i want to study, but i'm looking into teaching (primary/college Law/Biology). Stressed about deciding.
How about you?
I hope you do well. I'm considering LLB Law but i'm abit of a science nerd really, but i dont mind.
Good Luck! Take care
