I'm trying really hard to read the Modul Penyelidikan Tindakan because our lec said she'll test our knowledge about this course - topic 1-7 -TOMORROW. Then; I must have gone crazy, I haven't even finish reading the whole module; I turned on my laptop and went straight to Youtube.
I've watched videos of how Muslims in Korea lived, of how halal food was there etc etc.
Then I stumbled upon this vid, of how non-muslim people tried wearing hijab, and they all look stunning. Believe me, I feel the happiest whenever I cover my head while walking outside. It makes me feel safe, don't you? And yes, choosing tudung / headscarf are exciting to do, since a lot of patterns, fabrics and designs have come to limelight recently. It's fashionable nowadays to wear hijab. But ehem bear in mind my muslim sisters, it's not fashion that we crown on our heads, it's Allah's will so that we keep on being modest, so always remember not to wear things extravagantly.
And then I browse through the recommended videos, so I watched this one [CLICK HERE].
The poems in the description touched me so much I feel it's regretful if I didn't share it here.
You look at me and call me oppressed,
Simply because of the way I'm dressed,
You know me not for what's inside,
You judge the clothing I wear with pride,
My body is not for your eyes to hold,
You must speak to my mind, not my feminine mould,
I'm an individual, I'm no mans slave,
It's Allah's pleasure that I only crave,
I have a voice so I will be heard,
For in my heart I carry His word,
"O ye women, wrap close your cloak, so you won't be bothered by ignorant folk",
Man doesn't tell me to dress this way,
It's a law from God that I obey,
Oppressed is something I'm truly NOT,
For liberation is what I've got,
It was given to me many years ago,
With the right to prosper, the right to grow,
I can climb mountains or cross the seas,
Expand my mind in all degrees,
For God Himself gave us LIB-ER-TY,
When He sent Islãm,
To You and Me!
MasyaAllah! Finally my week is worthwhile. And oooh yes - resuming revision!
