Anonymous said: Is manipulating energy haraam? I don't necessarily think it's magic. It's like, moving energy to heal yourself or others spirits or chakras and charging crystals with positive energy to give to people so positive things happen to them. or charging water for the same thing, and using natural herbs to heal physical ailments. it wont involve allah at all so i wont be worshiping him through it at all or anything like that.

Well, to be honest, as an ex-pagan, these were all things I used to do. It’s all based in magic rituals of ancient things. I know you do not have bad intentions but it’s still not best for us to do as Muslims. We should pray for our healing and our needs. We should say Bismillah before anything anything we do so it has the blessing of Allah. :)

Duas of those in need are some of the most powerful things on Earth.

As always though, Allah knows best. :)

My husband was like, “It seems to me that tumblr is for 20-year-olds like Facebook is for 13-year-olds, full of sappy quotes and photos.”

I was like “…But our sappy quotes and photos are cooler!” *sniffle*

I do! I believe it is high time we stop telling our co-workers that professionalism only has a straight-haired appearance. Are you tired of using heavy relaxers on your hair to achieve a ‘work-friendly’ appearance? Have you ever felt like you had trouble with gaining employment due to your natural…

13 Photos Proving Feminism Isn’t Just for Straight White Women

tuscanystuff:

A book that I suggest for anybody who isn’t a misogynist and enjoys Islamic literature is “Great Women in Islam”.

It’s very empowering to read these stories of previous women who took what they had and made something beautiful out of it. Each woman has her circumstances but they are all lovely…

Women’s Space in the Mosques of Toronto Photo Project

Masjid #12

Baitul Mukarram Masjid Islamic Society - Toronto

This masjid’s front door aren’t open the majority of the time. So, both men and women access the masjid from a side door where men go to the right, up to the main, large prayer hall, and women go to the left, into the scary, dark basement.

The women’s section is small here. There is a brother’s overflow area right next to it, with scary warning signs to not enter, to not open the doors, etc. The prayer mats provided are dirty and the carpet is even worse. It’s dark and there are no working lights in the actually prayer section, even though they did work in the hallway, which was weird. There was a small window that let in some light, at least, but it was still sketchy as hell. 

The women’s section also clearly was doubling as a storage section. There were massive portable prayer mats that were stacked at the front. I didn’t pray in jammat here so I couldn’t hear the speaker system. I’m hoping it was adequate considering that otherwise it wasn’t so hot for us women in terms of size and cleanliness or light.

There is no reason why mosques should keep inadequate prayer spaces for women. We are half the Ummah and we’re equal spiritually to any man. We should not be shoved in dirty closet spaces with little light. These prayer spaces would not be tolerated by the men so why do we sometimes tolerate them?

THIS IS IMPORTANT. 

wow.. the fucking story line. speechless. 

It’s such an important time for this film to come out.

It’s so easy for the film idustry to show people we fought against in the past as real people. But it’s something new to put a face a name and a story to the people that so many of us see as the enemy.

Please watch the trailer. This’ll stir up a lot of shit with the american public but I have a good feeling about this movie.

This will be really interesting. I want to see this when it comes out.
