I hope you find a way to be yourself some day
I will wake up at three AM
And I will roll over
Into your arms.
You will rub my back
Until I fall back to sleep.
I will wait for that.
Anonymous asked: Muslim woman wears Hijab to be less noticeable and to stay hidden from the eyes of men. In America, women are more likely to have impure thoughts about men. So, because women in America are more likely to have impure thoughts, shouldn't men use something to stay hidden from the eyes of American woman? what our Islam says. please guide thank u
That is not the rationale as to why women wear Hijab.
The Prophet has discussed the issue of Hijab, but not in those terms.
The Qur’an commands both men and women to lower their gaze, and it seems that we are—collectively—guilty of passing our responsibilities off to other people to alleviate the guilt on our part.
At the end of the day, I am an Imam, and I do not understand the rationalization of women objectifying men or lusting after them in the same debased and horrid methods that men have unfortunately—and systematically—utilized on women.
The argument that men are afforded this space in this (and many other) societies and therefore to tell women to avoid this process would be to infringe on their autonomy is not something I find very convincing; it assumes that I agree with this space afforded to men, and the simple fact of the matter is that I do not.
I have spoken about my issue with men’s practices and their detrimental socialized methods of thinking about women, quite often, and more so outside of Tumblr, and it seems unfortunate that our discussions about what men and women should or should not be doing vis-a-vis Islam are actually discussed outside of The Qur’an and Sunnah, let alone the historical tradition of Islamic scholarship.
I’m going to delete this, because people don’t have reading comprehension skills and I tire of being misunderstood by those who cannot make distinctions, only inaccurate assumptions.
