Muslim sisters thirsting for Aladdin, love yourselves. The true (Disney) man you should be thirsting for is Shang from Mulan who actually goes to visit Mulan’s family before making any moves on her. MashaAllah, Li Shang, keep up the halaal.
When someone asks you to make Duaa for them or if you say you’ll make Duaa for anyone, it becomes an Amanah (trust) upon you. So fulfill it.
Sometimes people think their duas will never be answered. They think “what I’m asking is too far-fetched, I am too sinful, there are too many barriers.” Don’t they know that Allah (swt) is Al-Mujeeb? He is The One who Responds, regardless of how difficult your situation seems.
I prayed for Amr to come into my life. Sitting in my room alone, I would make this Dua consistently: O Allah, bless me with a righteous spouse who will bring me happiness in this world and the next, who will bring me closer to You and be a means of me entering Jannah.
That was my Dua, word for word.
And then Allah (swt) gave me Amr and he brought me happiness in this world, and he encouraged me to be closer to Allah (swt) both in life and in death. And if I am patient through the difficult trial of losing him, I do not doubt that The Most Merciful will reward my patience with paradise – that is His promise.
Allah (swt) gave me what I asked. Perfectly. Exactly. And without much effort at all on my part. It is not that I was without sin, or that there were no barriers – and it certainly seemed to be a “far-fetched” dua at the time. But I wasn’t asking my feeble and weak self for this gift, I was asking Al-Mujeeb who is able to do anything, and He responded.
I asked Allah for Amr and He gave him to me.
I asked Allah for happiness and He gave that to me.
I asked Allah for Jannah and He gave me this test to see if I am worthy. I pray that I am.
Far be it from Him to not give you what you ask, or better. Far be it from a believer to not trust that He will respond to those who call.”

It’s worth mentioning that hijab is an entire dress code that applies to both men and women and isn’t just a head covering. Muslims don’t have the monopoly on head coverings, people of all faiths wear them, and you’re welcome to do so as well. :)
002. If you allow your body to have control over you, you’ll continue to laze, make excuses, and waste your time. Learn to exert control over your body; discipline it and be consistent with your acts of worship, with your sleep schedule, with everything.
Anonymous said: I've just finished high school and have been wearing hijab for about a year or so now and have a primary school reunion coming up, any tips on how to stay confident in hijab considering they won't have ever seen me in it before? I know hijab is not about what others think of you and that one shouldn't be concerned with how others view them, but I feel this is a part of human nature... anyway would appreciate any tips and advice on staying confident and comfortable? xx
Honestly, whenever I see people I knew before hijab, I purposely act extra confident just because I know they have a certain mentality about hijab (I lived around people who weren’t fans of Muslims,) and basically prove their assumptions wrong by being even more confident in myself. Don’t take any negativity from people and stay smiling :) youll be fine inshaAllah!
May Allah forgive us, purify our hearts, cleanse our tongues and rectify our affairs. Ameen.

My friend and I are a cosplay duo, and it's our current project to cosplay every character from a podcast, Welcome To Night Vale. As it's a podcast, none of the characters have an actual image - it's all headcanon and imagination! My headcanon for one character is that she wears a hijab. However, I am non-muslim - would it be racist for a non-muslim to wear a hijab for cosplay?
So this is just my opinion on the topic, but I don’t think it’s a problem as long as you keep in mind the religious and personal meaning the hijab has to many people and you’re not doing it as a joke.
(Also, I love Night Vale and I think this is a super awesome idea. I’m interested to know which character you imagine as a hijabi?)
