The message on the Keffiyeh

Assalamu Alaikum,

When I wear anything Black, White and Gray (escpecially when it has red on it too!), I don't wear just because it's the style, or becuase it matches my outfit; but I wear it because it has a meaning. To most people, wearing a Keffiyeh signifies supporting Palestine. But to me, each color has a meaning.
Black: The darkness of the time we're in right now
White: The promise of our pure future (Victory! Jannah!!)
Gray: The haziness of our Black-and-White past
Red: The blood shed during our Black moments
The Keffiyeh is a promising article of clothing that I'm proud to treasure in my wardrobe!!
P.S. Sorry I haven't written for looong!!

Mashallah that's beautiful to see so many meaning in one thing

I agree with malizea! Masha'Allah :D
May we all be granted Jannah

malizea: Yes SubhanAllah! There should be nothing in our closets that holds no meaning. For instance, our Abayahs mean modesty, our dresses mean more freedom around women, our hijabs mean protection...etc.
