Salam Sisters,
Thanks for your kind words and encouragement. Love you all.
With Allah’s help and your support I will continue this labour of love.

I also want to let you know that I will be featuring sisters who don’t wear the hijab too. After all, they our sisters and we love them. Yes we love them!

I bring this up today because I watched this video and I felt really upset. Unfortunately, some sisters are not kind to others who don’t wear the hijab.

Hijab or no hijab, all Muslim women are my sisters. I respect them and don’t have time to waste on judging others, because I am busy judging myself.

I am interested in only one thing, to know what difference you are making in this world. We are beautiful Muslims as long as we follow the teachings of Prophet Mohammed, peace and blessing of Allah be upon him. We should be tolerant, love one another, be humble and do good deeds.

With that said, I wish to remind you and I of Allah Almighty’s words that teaches us how to behave as true believers:

O you who believe! Let not a group scoff at another group, it may be that the latter are better than the former. Nor let (some) women scoff at other women, it may be that the latter are better than the former. Nor defame one another, nor insult one another by nicknames. How bad is it to insult one’s brother after having Faith (i.e. to call your Muslim brother (a faithful believer) as: [“O sinner”, or “O wicked”]. And whosoever does not repent, then such are indeed Zalimun (wrong-doers). 
The Holy Quran, Chapter 49 Al Hujurat (ayah #11)

Astaghfirullah, I am ashamed that there should BE a scarf controversy.

There is no compulsion in religion and we are not to judge others because 1)we do not know their circumstances or what is in their heart and 2)everyone follow the path that Allah puts them on. InshaAllah we make dua that our brothers and sisters are on the right path, we remind our brothers and sisters in the best way possible, then we leave it to Allah subhana wa ta'ala.

Allahu alem.

Slms Amber, I am so glad you posted this beautiful post. I also feel very upset when others judge others.Who are we to judge? And scarf is not the 'main' thing in islam - observing hijaab means so much more.And, only God can judge who is a better muslim, so yeah, please let's re inforce the fact that hijaab or not, we are all sisters and we love each other.
Jazakallah for this wonderful post.
