Unique as I am

If there is one important thing you need to know about me, it's that you won't find many people out there like me. For instance, many people in our communities just want to be cool and have a fun life. I remember the days when I was one of those people. I used to just go to the masjid to hang out with my friends and play. But now I'm even prouder to say that I am a person that goes to the masjid to read Qura'n, to pray, to listen to lectures, and to accompany other sisters in doing the same. I am one of the only preteens I know that does this. My friends bug me alot to come and hang-out with them outside. I usually say no, for outside of the masjid there are many boys and no girls.

Basically I am one of the only preteens I know that:

  • Wants to wear the niqab

  • Is constantly asking questions about Islam

  • Is always thinking about death

  • Stays on the safe side of contraversial issues.

I feel this wave of strangeness when I'm around my friends. We are all Muslims, but not all of us are religious. It's sad how I have to feel this weird and different when I'm around my own brothers and sisters.

Unique as I am, I am Muslim. And no one can ever change that.

Asalamu Alaikum sister,

I was wondering if that was the picture of the mosque you go to :D

If so o_o then we might know each other (well technically, you're probably younger than me but I do go to MCA often)

You don't have to answer if you don't want to sister, but it would've been awesome to know you. You have such strong faith and I too used to go outside with my friends and just stand there talking (astagfurillah).

May Allah swt grant you peace and Jannah
