Assalamu Alaikum to all you people out there,
I just wanted to let you all know I love you guys for the sake of Allah, and I hope you do too! Keep me in your duaa's and have a GREAT winter break!
Today, I was emailing one of my besties, and I wrote to her: "Your sister in Islam, Bint Khaled."
So I asked myself:
Ever WONDERED the truth behind the SIS and BRO?!!!
And then I spent like a while thinking over what it actually means behind the "sister" and "brother". So first of all, we all technically ARE sisters and brothers bioligically whether Muslim or non-Muslim, because our common ancestor is Adam (AS)!
Also, when you call another person your sister or brother, then you are technically refreshing ties with them and giving another proof of your certain closeness and affection to them. So that's why I'm beginning to use it a lot. But here's the weird part about the way I use it nowadays.
Me: "Teacher, the guys are annoying us!"
Me: "Teacher, the brothers are annoying us!"
lol. Then I never hear the end of it till like I graduate! It's kind of interesting how when I learn something so loved by all the scholars, and then I try to bring it to school, I get laughed at, and end up getting one degree down in my faith again! haha!
Yeah..so there are always complications along with trying to bring the Islamic renaissance back again!! ;P
May Allah help us all,
