i thought it's no one's fault if one get offended or being offensive enough on one's entry, views, picture and so forth. that's what a blog does, right? it appears as what the owners want to; to upload pictures as big as a mansion, to put as many gadget as it is usable in real life, and even some would rather be sarcastic in their words; well, either purposely to voice out their views on something or just to gain others' attention. (so to increase traffic and to increase money from click rate and ads. *btw, i joined nuffnang, just, just now. HEHE*)
as the saying goes, words are way sharper than the sharpest sword. in real life, every single life gets hurt. but in this matter, i try to be neutral because both parties have their own rights.

hijab and women. muslim women wear hijab because it is in keeping with the commandments of Allah. through Muhammad, Allah’s words are that women should be modest, and cover their beauties like their hair and their chest. at home among family and in front of their husband, muslim women are allowed not to wear it.
i come in peace, not offending anyone but to remind myself as well.
it’s been a journey yet it continues; this is not the end. let me reiterate that, this is not my final view on hijab. nothing in life is final. we are dynamic beings living in a dynamic world. things are always changing, slowly morphing from one form to another.
the only constant is Allah. i just might act differently to those beliefs at different points in time. probably because of thinking about too many things; life, death, afterlife, how the things work, bad vs good etc.
perfection is not something i strive for. it's a misguided goal (these are someone's words and i'm holding tight with them). so instead of trying to be the perfect muslim, i try to be the best i can be. it may sound like the same thing, but it’s not. perfection is a standard, unrelated to me but being the best of me is the goal that i can completely understand with every fibre of my being. because i know myself well.
i was created as i am with all my bad personality traits as well as my good ones. am i wrong?
"we just have to; open our eyes, our hearts, and minds. if we just look bright to see the signs. we can’t keep hiding from the truth. let it take us by surprise. take us in the best way, guide us every single day. keep us close to you, until the end of time."

well, he owns the points, the exact points. YES, this is from a 'HE'. now i'm start wondering what my male friends (nanti cakap boyfriends perasan pulak -.-) had on their minds, about hijab itself and of course those various kinds of hijab and shawls that hit the market these days which happened to become girls' favourite? well, i'm definitely not excluded.
they are undeniably addictive and something to be shown-off.

well, at least, i've read the post. sarcastic to be honest but we can change. we can still turn things around; well of course to the right path, to His only path.
"you say we're on the brink of destruction and you're right. but it's only on the brink that people find the will to change. only at the precipice do we evolve. this is our moment. don't take it from us, we are close to an answer."

just don't grab the moment and be so negative about some mistakes. mistakes? i supposed to. this 'HE' assumed all of the hijab-wearing-girls knew the exact definition of aurat and expecting every single stylo-hijab-wearing-girls-who-upload-500kb-into-their-blog to be offended and listen to his teachings, no, they're more likely to be 'advices'. i'm not mad, neither angry nor offended. i'm just shocked, to see the comments. now, let's just agree with john gray...
btw, i've read this. literally explains both genders' emotional needs anddd, COMMUNICATION STYLE.
see? women like to demonstrate their feelings by being allowed to relate problems without interference. but when men communicate, they like to get to the point, and generally only want to listen if they feel the conversation has a point; women enjoy talking for its own sake, and are happy to listen unconditionally. but how can Adam and Hawa get along? by love and respect. it's good to have our own opinions as long as we respect each other. let's just start with respect, then we'll bring the love.
now, maybe the point is; some women are not happy to hear those sarcastic words from this 'HE'. are you happy making people upset? no. and are you upset when people happy? no. so, let's call it a day. i'm really tired when it comes to adam and hawa. i just ask for your tolerance and compassion. i know this is hard to read especially when you're that hijab-wearing-girl kan? no worries, whether it's destructive or constructive, it's our choice to mind it or not.
but frankly, this 'HE' woke me up. thanks for reminding and it's fine with me. recall recall my tenth new year's resolution; keep on motivating myself. i can always improve, kan? ;)
insyaAllah, i'll continue to study Islam, hijab and life’s workings. i am a naturally dynamic being. we are dynamic beings. so, there's no one to blame, really. Allah's always watching me, and the rest of us :)
