Comments Welcome Good or Bad

Hey where are all of the readers' comments?

I'm gettin' squirly waiting for comments from the 39+ people I KNOW are out there reading this blog!

Say it loud, say it proud!

Whatever you think after you read my blog or the CiN Weekly article, I'd love to hear it whatever it may be.

I've already had a private email from a concerned friend - she saw in the pic the dolls behind me and was worried those were statues of Angles - haram (religiously forbidden) items. I assured her, they are in fact not angels, are ARE faceless...in case any one is wondering.

She also said a lot of sisters she passed the article on to in Qatar are reacting negatively (whatever that may mean) but I have no idea what they are thinking because they are not making comments here there or anywhere, wah.

Salam, it was a great article and very neat picture. Strange that anyone even noticed the statues... oh well..

Matthew 6:21 says, "for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also".

We see what we want to see.

Thanks and welcome Sarah!

Does anyone know what my first step is to digitally recording myself? I am technologically stunted:).

It's high time I make the much-needed trip down to the electronic shop and figure out how to do this. I have some cassettes of my music, perhaps the best thing to do is get one of those gizmos that converts analog to digital.

I *promise I'll get it up and running in the next 6 months!

I read a variety of blogs not just one certain style.
I notice some blogger just has one style or one items to blogg about. I want to increase my heart and mind.

Read about you in CIN Weekly and checked out your blog. I'm glad you posted the link to the Teamsters regarding Mexican trucking; I sent my objection. I too was raised Methodist and now I'm Catholic. Why did you become Muslim? (By the way, my Google account is linked to a blog I do for someone in India, not me. I'm a woman in Cincinnati; my web site is www.keithops.us.)

Hi, RH!

So, I'm curious. Why are picture books and photographs allowed, but not faces on statues?

Rockin' Hejabi said...

Welcome back Madcap! Good to hear from you:)

To be honest, I don't know. The whole statue thing seems pretty inconsequential to me. In my humble opinion, the folks that are preoccupied with faces on statues are totally missing the point. Sometimes I wonder if we're even practicing the same religion, but it's not my place to make that Judgement, only God can sort that stuff out!
To me, having a personal relationship with God is most important. The outer stuff like what I wear or how I shake hands can help to keep me in line (I can't buy beer in hejab! Good Nur!)...but the outer things certainly won't get me into heaven!

I just got finished reading your blog, which I found through Salihah's link on her blog, which I found through another blog I found through another blog I found through an MDC mama's siggy line.

Anyway, I've been fascinated by Islam for a while now, first started learning about it when I was in the Navy and my ship visited Bahrain, where I picked up a Qu'ran and some books about Islam.

Your story is an interesting one and I enjoy your writing. I'm off to read your new blog next!
