Salaams fellow muslimah bloggers!

I am sitting at the library trying to study for my exam tomorrow and trying not to think about how hungry Iam but, Marshallah, my first week of blogging has been soo much fun!!I probably dont have many followers but Inshallah in time this blog will become resourceful to the new muslimah just looking for advice. I am grateful to those of you who took time out to answer my questions and respond, thanks so much. I have learned so much about being a woman in islam this week and its crazy! Who wouldve ever guessed blogging would be so fun and such a neat way to meet other muslimahs. So I just wanted to say thanks to all of you who have helped me out with your kind advice. Shukrain! :)

We are in the final stretch of ramadan and I feel horrible because I have soooo behind in my Quran reading so shame on me..I have a week to redeem myself so Iam going to double up on my reading and try to complete it by Eid. There is really no excuse for me to have not finished. I suppose its because I am sooo worn down and school is extremely demanding. Inshallah I will be able to complete this last week of ramadan with extra prayers and increased quran reading. After school today,I have to go to work and then I have to study but I still cant let all of these obligations keep me from doing what I need to do and what Allah(swt) is worthy of.

Hijab Advice?

I am currently searching for good websites to order hijabs and underscarves from and I find plenty,however, they are all overseas..If anyone knows any good sites that are in the US I would love to have the links.

Hijab tutorials

Here is a neat website I found that will walk you through the basics of wearing a hijab:


http://www.hijabsforyou.com/howtowear.html


Marshallah this is a wonderful article! It explains why to wear a hijab but it also has links to other articles that may be of some use to sisters thinking of wearing hijab like myself. I just dont know where to begin. I have began collecting them and I own quite a few. I am struggling with wearing them everyday..not because I dont understand the signifigance of it, but because I am taking some time getting use to the stares I receive when I do wear hijab. I know this is due to my lack of maturity in the religion what I suppose is understandable since I have only been muslim for 2 months.. The funny thing is when I see sisters in hijabs and niqabs I feel soo proud for them and I think to myself that is awesome! There is nothing quite like it.I just hope this phase doesnt last too long and I can spend more time wearing hijab as opposed to talking about it.LOL

ramdomness

Ok so this is my second day as a blogger and Im beginning to wonder if its more fun to read others instead of creating your own....I have so much to say and yet I do not know where to start however, what I do know is its rather late to be up since fajr is in a few hours..yikes!

Advice for the new Muslimah

Salaam,

My hopes is that this blog can become a reference for new muslimah's like myself..There is so much to learn about Islam, being a woman in Islam, and what to expect. However, Iam finding the road to knowledge more lonely than I had anticipated and wonders if there are others in my shoes? If so leave a message,lets try to learn from one another. Sisters with good advice please feel free to share your wisdom with us newbies..:)
