|hushlovewhisper||12:03 pm - salaam and shalom, sisters :-)|
i'm so excited because i just joined this community, and i wanted to thank saturnic_tides the cool sister mod of the group for letting me come along for the ride- thank you, sweetheart!!! :-)
i've been a practicing hijabi Muslimah for nearly 3 years now, Alhamdulillah!!! i really feel that Islam, modesty, and feminism all go hand in hand with one another. i'm speaking of true feminism where equality among the genders is supported as it is wholeheartedly and completely in Al-Islam.
i also feel a special bond with the Jewish sisters who practice Tznius as we are sisters both in interfaith as well as in modesty. i have an older girlfriend who is Jewish and pratices Tznius, and we always wave excited and happy hellos and call out salaams and shaloms to eachother!!! :-)
i have lots more to say, and, Insha'Allah, i'll post more to the community in the near future :-)
Wa Salaam and Shalom Aleichem, dear sistas :-)
Ack! Forgive me for not commenting and welcoming you sooner.. :( I am so happy and thankful to have you, and all of our sisters, as a part of this community. I get membership requests every so often and it always makes me grateful that there is no shortage of faithful sisters who want to share that incredibly special bond with one another. Thank you and a very warm welcome to you - I do hope you enjoy your stay here!
