“I’m among Muslims now but I’m still an outsider,” I think as I watch them.
I felt pity for the poor Muslim woman who had to “wear all that junk,” or “walk around in bed – sheets” as I used to call it
I was a modern woman, educated and liberated. Little did I know the awful truth.
It was when Allah guided me to Islam, and I put on the hijab, that I was finally able to step out of the society in which I lived and see it for what it really is.
We wouldn’t be too hard pressed to find ordinary women on the street who are more plastic than real! Indeed, in some circles, having multiple facelifts has become a status symbol: the more you have, the higher you are in the status rankings.
The status of mothers – and consequently that of women – is elevated to the highest position in Islam. The honor Islam has given to mothers is beyond that found in any other religion, ideology or culture. This is clear proof of the lofty status of Muslim Women.
