To the girls out there

Hi guys.

So someone asked me to blog. And yes, I'll fulfill your request through this post. Cheer up :)

Well, last week, I've been scrolling down my twitter and found this thread of Kak Dena's giving her thoughts on how disgusting people nowadays associating women's aurah to men's imagination. You know what, this post has somehow triggered my inner feminism to vent out. Thus, bear with me for a while throughout this post cus I'll be freely exposing my thoughts over this issue.

It started out when people are obsessively making the issue of how muslim girls should wear clothes that are syariah compliance goes viral. They are continuously talking sarcastically bout those girls who don't wear 'modestly' and make them a bad person in figure. In addition, they also expressed their harsh criticisms over girls who wear make up to be fake. They also had made a fuss over the issue of girls who don't want to do the dishes as those girls don't deserve to be a good daughter and a good 'future' wife at all. Omg, these bunch of people got no chill! They even commented on the way Yuna dressed and giving bad perceptions towards her after the incident of Yuna being hugged by Usher during their live concert. It gets worst day by day, as people view this as a big issue because they really think that Yuna has worsened the image of our beloved country and the deen itself. Okay look, there're things that I can agree with them on these issues but not to the extent THAT SAYING YUNA IS A TOTAL SLUT FOR LETTING HERSELF BEING HUGGED BY A MAN. God made us different to actually teach us to embrace and accept each other respectively. He didn't create human to fight with each other over petty things such as the differences in religion and culture. He made us come with flaws so we can complete each other. If you think that you are devoted enough to the deen, then that doesn't give you the right to look down on your acquaintances who do not perceive the deen the way you are taught. Do you why know why these bunch of netizens went overboard on Yuna's issue? IT IS BECAUSE SHE WEARS HIJAB IN WHICH A PERSON WHO WEARS HIJAB CANNOT COMMIT ANY WRONGDOINGS AT ALL. A PERSON WHO WEARS HIJAB HOLDS THE KEY TO THE PURITY OF THE DEEN. A PERSON WHO WEARS HIJAB IS SO PERFECT AS SHE IS SO SUPERIOR AND RIGHTEOUS IN THE SOCIETY THAT SHE SHOULD NOT HAVE ANY FLAWS AT ALL. Gdi! How can you put the value of your deen over a person who wears hijab?!!!!! Yes, wearing a hijab is A RELIGIOUS COMMAND but that doesn't mean all the religion values lie on the people who wear hijab. She is a human too, she makes mistakes, so as you. Then, who are you to judge her? Who are you to say that she conforms to a devilish act by letting it slide? It was such an  uncontrollable scene. Huh people are so quick in making judgments! 

Next is, the so called 'make up' fights. Ugh this thing is getting on my nerves since forever. Why are those men being very fussy and crazy over girls' stuffs?! They feel so superior to judge girls who wear make up. It gives them such a satisfaction I guess. No boy! That's not a satisfaction when you go freely talking bout other people's flaws,but we call it as an ego. She bought all the stuffs using her own money and she wears them on her own will. Not even bother to ask you to buy her those stuffs. You do not need to understand their interest over make ups cause you will not be interested anyway. Nevertheless how much you state your hates towards girls who wear make up, I know you'll still attract to those girls who are pleasing to your eyes. Beauty is subjective. So, stop all the nonsense! Girls, wear anything that makes you comfortable and confident. Ditch all the negative perspectives that people throw at you, cause you're worth than that! I love you girls!

  1. Girl, like I agree with you. If men or any other haters don't like what they see, what's the harm in saying it out nicely? Like civilized human beings? Because if they want to publicly humiliate other Muslims, then does that make them any better? I think NOT. Would their behaviour somehow bring those people to the right teachings? In fact, I'm quite surprised and disgusted how Muslims are so quick to judge, hate and attack on Muslim icons who are bringing our identity to the world, but can make petty excuses on idols they keep close at heart despite committing the same mistakes they keep close at heart. I think our people have to take one step back before acting on anything and zip it if they know it could add more fuel to the fire. There's always a better way to "tegur" others. Thank you for writing up this post!!
