Forty percent of Muslims say they have a college degree or more, compared to the 29 percent of Americans overall. Muslim women in America… are statistically likely as Muslim men to hold college or postgraduate degrees. Muslim women also report monthly household incomes more or nearly equal to men’s, compared to women and men in other faith groups.

Dr. John Esposito, The Future of Islam


Because we’re oppressed, right?

Because we’re married young and just have babies, right?

Because we’re subjected to a patriarchal faith, right?

Because we’re uneducated, right?

Right?

jesus-still-loves-me:

i’ve been on tumblr and followed some of you long enough to see that you’ve gradually changed your ways and become more sensitive and appreciative of others and try not to be offensive etc. (as i have too)

but then its like we can’t give other people that same space to grow and i see you guys attacking people that you don’t even know without having a conversation with them or even giving them a chance to understand exactly whats going on. they usually learn from it but i’m saying that we were never perfect to begin with and we’re still learning so just chill

also a lot of the time its easier to just inbox someone and explain why they shouldn’t do or say something and they usually listen without all the commotion

niqabiimuslimah:

Some people could be going through so much more than what you see..
They could be crying themselves to sleep, when all they show you is a smile..
There could be so much more going on..

Ya Allah, I don’t know their problems, but You do.
Ya Allah, grant them patience to endure their troubles and forgive them for their sins, Ameen.

Allahumma ameen.

Marriage isn’t something I’m supposed plan, while my academics/financial life/religious improvement are.

Please differentiate what can pop up in your life and what you need to work your ass off for.

In marriage, you will win every battle if you fight it together and you will lose every battle if you fight it against each other. In good times and bad, remember that your spouse is always your partner and never your enemy.
