There is more to life than just Islam. You were wrong for practically drawing me in with your hospitality, isolating me from my own family. My efforts in getting to know you was a total waste of time!
I hope one day you learn that you can't get through life being fake with everyone, in hopes of converting them to Islam just to marry your daughters.

"Dear Muslim Family & Friends...
I wish you didn't tralk about or bring up Islam, at least to me, anytime we're in the same presence.
'Yeah I already prayed!'
'I'm on my period, there's no need.'
'I'll wear looser jeans next time, I'm sorry'
Ideally, I of course don't want you following this terrible excuse of a religion, but that's jsut unrealistic.
I wish you didn't purposely subjugate me to this kind of stuff.

"Dear Muslim Family & Friends...
I wish you actually gave me a choice to wear or not to wear hijab. You only instructed me to wear it, but never gave me the option to take it off. And when I tried taking my hijab off, you sadly cursed at me instead... Please tell me how can hijab even be a choice!
You can fight for a woman's right to wear a hijab and also fight for another woman's right to NOT wear one if she doesn't want to - and you'd still be fighting for the same thing, a woman's right to choose.
October 3, 2022 - Protesting Iranian schoolgirls kick their pro-government school director out of their schoolgrounds. Students across Iran have been occupying their schools in protest after the death of Jina Mahsa Amini. [video]
The situation is currently so wild and messed up in my country, Iran.
The government wants ALL of the people to have strong faith in Islam. They force all the women to wear hijab, even if a woman isn't even muslim.
We do not want this in our country!! Everyone should be free to choose what they want to wear, if they want to be muslim or not and if they want to wear hijab or not.
A couple of days ago, Mahsa Amini who was just a normal 22-year-old girl and was on vacation with her family got arrested, beaten and killed by the moral security police, just because she wasn't wearing hijab.
If you see a young girl get murdered by some random person in the street, what do you do? Of course you go and tell the police. But now, in Iran, the policemen are the murderers who are killing some innocent people. WHERE CAN WE REPORT THEIR CRIMES???
Lots of people in Iran are demonstrating in different places now and we're getting united against this unfair situation. But that's not enough! Many people get killed by the police in these demonstrations and we can hear the sound of shotguns echoing in the streets.
You, the people who live in other countries that are safe enough, please be our voice! Please reblog my post or even share it on other platforms. Do whatever you can! Please don't leave us alone. All we want is just freedom and justice.
I feel stupid for asking this so im using anon, but how do you draw the hijab? Whenever I try it looks like an egg www
also, Ramadan Mubarak! May Allah bless you
Don’t feel stupid for asking! Drawing is hard no matter what you’re drawing, so don’t be afraid to ask for help^^ But honestly even I feel like the best of my hijabis look a little egg-like, and that’s okay!
This tutorial is already taking so goddamn long, so I’m just gonna link my coloring and shading tutorial I did a month ago 😭😭
Gosh, I hope what I wrote made sense 😅 But thank you so much for the well wishes! Happy Ramadan (Eid Mubarak at this point WAHHH), and the same to you, may you and your loved ones have many blessings!!
Hijab - a symbol of dignity, inclusion and liberty when it is chosen to be wore.
Hijab - a symbol of oppression and cruelty when forced to be wore.
It isn't about hijab, it's about choice. If I want I will wear it, if I don't I will not. No one can stop me from doing so. Forcing someone to not wear hijab is wrong, every person has a right to do so but forcing someone to wear it is equally wrong.
The condition in Iran is not to be taken lightly. Mahsa Amini, a 22 year old was beaten to death by the police because of not wearing hijab properly. People in Iran are protesting for their rights. Women are cutting their hair off and burning their hijab to show what they want. Internet services are shutting down so that the people of Iran cannot use their voice.
It is now our responsibility to be their voice. If they can stand upto their government without any fear, why can't we be their voice?
Hijab is beautiful when it is chosen to be wore but it's beauty dies when it is forced.
If a 14 year old can understand that, why can't the whole world do?
Studying at Tehran University in 1977: While many women were already in higher education at the time of the revolution, the subsequent years saw a marked increase in the number attending university. This was in part because the authorities managed to convince conservative families living in rural areas to allow their daughters to study away from home.
"They tried to stop women from attending university, but there was such a backlash they had to allow them to return," says Baroness Haleh Afshar, a professor of women's studies at the University of York who grew up in Iran in the 1960s.
"Some educated people left Iran, and the authorities realised in order to run the country they needed to educate both men and women."
Window shopping in Tehran in 1976: Before the revolution, the hijab was already widely worn but many women also chose to don Western-style clothes, including tight-fitting jeans, miniskirts and short-sleeved tops. "The shoes haven't changed - and the passion for shoes is in all of us! Women in Iran are no different from women the world over, and going shopping is just a means for women to get away from every day stress," says Prof Afshar.
Friday picnic in Tehran in 1976: Families and friends tend to get together on Fridays, which are weekend days in Iran. "Picnics are an important part of Iranian culture and are very popular amongst the middle classes. This has not changed since the revolution. The difference is, nowadays, men and women sitting together are much more self-aware and show more restraint in their interactions," says Prof Afshar.
Hair salon in Tehran in 1977: "This is a scene you would no longer expect to see in Iran - but even after the Islamic Revolution, hairdressers continued to exist," says Prof Afshar. "Nowadays you wouldn't see a man inside the hairdressers - and women would know to cover up their hair as soon as they walked out the door. Some people may also operate secret salons in their own homes where men and women can mix."
Bodyguards surround the shah in 1971: A young woman approaches Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi (far right) at a huge party marking the 2,500th anniversary of the Persian monarchy - the extravagance of the event was widely condemned by his left-wing and clerical opponents. "By this time, the shah was already very much disliked and some believe this image of excess and indulgence may have contributed to events leading up to the revolution eight years later," Prof Afshar explains.
Walking down a snowy street in Tehran in 1976: "You cannot stop women walking in the streets of Iran, but you wouldn't see this today - her earrings and make up so clearly on show," Prof Afshar says. "There is this concept of 'decency' in Iran - so nowadays women walking in the streets are likely to wear a coat down to her knees and a scarf."
Women rally against the hijab in 1979: Soon after taking power, Iran's new Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini decreed that all women had to wear the veil - regardless of religion or nationality. On 8 March - International Women's Day - thousands of women from all walks of life turned out to protest against the law.
Walking in Tehran in 2005: Not all women in Iran opt to wear the black chador, a cloak that covers the body from head to toe and only leaves the face exposed. Many prefer to wear loosely fitted headscarves and coats. "The real question is how far back do you push your scarf? Women have their own small acts of resistance and often try as far as possible to push their scarves back," says Prof Afshar.
Watching football from a Tehran shopping centre in 2008: Though women were never officially banned from watching men's football matches in Iran, they are often refused entry to stadiums and some of those who have tried have been detained. Before the revolution, women were allowed to attend sporting events.
SEPTEMBER 2022: Protests, after the Morality Police beat, arrested and then murdered Mahsa Amini — for the “crime” of improperly wearing her hijab (source) (source)
One of the Zuaiter family killed his wife, the mother of his children, with ten bullets. And there are people from the clan who are posting a video of the victim’s brother opening the killer’s coffee as evidence that there is no trace or problem between them after the crime because he said “wash their shame” and if he had not killed his wife, the brother would have been killed!!!!! And that the perpetrator's life continues as normal, and no one talks about the crime!!!!

Yesterday dawn, Saturday, March 25, at around 2:30, a horrific crime took place in the Choueifat desert locality. Zainab Ali Zuaiter (26 years old, Lebanese) and a mother of three children, was killed by her husband, called Hassan Musa Zuaiter (27 years old, Lebanese) from the town of Baalbek happened when the latter fired about ten bullets at his wife, killing her instantly. Soon, the security forces and criminal investigations came to the crime scene, and the victim, disfigured by a gunshot wound to the head and eyes, was transferred to the nearest hospital, covered in her own blood. General for the surroundings and relatives of the couple.
The circumstances of the crime
In the details, one of the residents of the area, a 55-year-old government employee, told Al-Modon that “the crime took place between two thirty and three in the morning yesterday, when the perpetrator, who works in several professions, most notably public transport, was sitting with his friends in a café.” A relative, to receive a call from an unknown person. Dazzled and pale in face, and clearly showing discontent and rage, the offender ran towards his nearby house, and after a few minutes we heard the loud scream. The witness added: "The husband fled with his three children, leaving his wife, covered in her blood and killed, on the bed, in their apartment, which is located next to the "Zaiter" supermarket. When the security forces arrived at the vicinity of the apartment, the husband and his family were hidden from view. This is while another neighbor suggested that the motive for the crime was “honor”, at the expense of the neighbor with whom Al-Modon contacted, refusing to disclose any other data.
While most of the residents near the couple's apartment indicated that the husband had been suffering from several nervous disorders for a long time, he could not bear to receive an anonymous call informing him of his wife's betrayal. They reported that the motive was that the husband searched his wife's phone (which had disappeared from the crime scene, according to security sources), and found pictures of her without a veil. This angered him, and made him kill his wife in front of his children, the eldest of whom is less than seven years old. While the husband disappeared from view, fleeing from the security forces that issued a search and investigation report against him, Al-Modon's security sources indicated that they are still examining the crime scene, the apartment, which was sealed with red wax.
The follow-up sources, who refused to mention her name, reported that the victim was buried yesterday, a few hours after her death, in the "Hay al-Salam" cemetery adjacent to the Choueifat desert locality, while the victim's brother, Hassan Ali Zuaiter, refused to hold the funeral, until he took his revenge on the killer. While the killer is still hiding from view, the fate of their three children is unknown. Most of those Al-Modon contacted tried to evade the answer, and even created justifications for the husband, “in his capacity as a victim of his wife’s betrayal and treachery,” hiding behind some stereotypical and repetitive scenarios that emerge at every similar crime, contenting themselves with saying that the killer with the intention of taking his honor is the authority of the truth. And his owner, who was stolen from him by force, at the hands of his wife. This is while it was difficult to communicate with the grieving and angry family of the victim, who insisted on taking their rights into their own hands.
It is noteworthy that Article 562 of the Lebanese Penal Code dealt with “honor crimes”, which allowed the perpetrator of this crime to benefit from the excuse that is exempt from punishment. i.e., whoever surprises his husband, one of his ascendants, descendants, or sister in the act of witnessed adultery or in the case of unlawful sexual intercourse, and kills or harms one of them unintentionally, while the perpetrator of the murder benefits from a mitigating excuse if he surprises his husband, or One of his ancestors, descendants, or sister is in a suspicious situation with another.
However, according to Law No. 7/99 issued on 20/2/1999, Article 562 was repealed and replaced with the following text: “He who surprises his spouse, one of his ascendants, descendants or sister in the case of witnessed adultery or in the case of unlawful intercourse shall benefit from a mitigating excuse.” So I unintentionally killed or harmed one of them.” Where the amendment dealt with the excuse excuse to become a mitigating excuse in addition to the cancellation of the second paragraph of the old Article 562.
This horrific crime, which has not been discussed so far, under the shadow of secrecy adopted by those close to the perpetrator and the victim alike for fear of shame and scandal, and with all its overlapping indications and suspicions, directly reflects the reality of rights in Lebanon, women’s rights in particular, rights It is dependent on popular chaos, security chaos, official connivance, legislative reaction in enacting fair laws, the absence of a legal, judicial and security deterrent for potential perpetrators, and even the dominance of defunct laws, such as “honor and revenge” and other social ills that spread in the northern Bekaa and the southern suburbs of Beirut, and have not been addressed to this day.
"iT's CuLtUrE nOt ReLiGiOn!!1!"
So they set out, until when they met a boy, al-Khidhr killed him. [Moses] said, "Have you killed a pure soul for other than [having killed] a soul? You have certainly done a deplorable thing."
And as for the boy, his parents were believers, and we feared that he would overburden them by transgression and disbelief.
So we intended that their Lord should substitute for them one better than him in purity and nearer to mercy.
Because of that, We decreed upon the Children of Israel that whoever kills a soul unless for a soul or for corruption [done] in the land - it is as if he had slain mankind entirely. And whoever saves one - it is as if he had saved mankind entirely. And our messengers had certainly come to them with clear proofs. Then indeed many of them, [even] after that, throughout the land, were transgressors.
Indeed, the penalty for those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger and strive upon earth [to cause] corruption is none but that they be killed or crucified or that their hands and feet be cut off from opposite sides or that they be exiled from the land. That is for them a disgrace in this world; and for them in the Hereafter is a great punishment
Whenever I tell you a narration from Allah's Messenger (ﷺ), by Allah, I would rather fall down from the sky than ascribe a false statement to him, but if I tell you something between me and you (not a Hadith) then it was indeed a trick (i.e., I may say things just to cheat my enemy). No doubt I heard Allah's Apostle saying, "During the last days there will appear some young foolish people who will say the best words but their faith will not go beyond their throats (i.e. they will have no faith) and will go out from (leave) their religion as an arrow goes out of the game. So, where-ever you find them, kill them, for who-ever kills them shall have reward on the Day of Resurrection."
A blind man had a slave-mother who used to abuse the Prophet (ﷺ) and disparage him. He forbade her but she did not stop. He rebuked her but she did not give up her habit. One night she began to slander the Prophet (ﷺ) and abuse him. So he took a dagger, placed it on her belly, pressed it, and killed her. A child who came between her legs was smeared with the blood that was there. When the morning came, the Prophet (ﷺ) was informed about it. He assembled the people and said: I adjure by Allah the man who has done this action and I adjure him by my right to him that he should stand up. Jumping over the necks of the people and trembling the man stood up. He sat before the Prophet (ﷺ) and said: Messenger of Allah! I am her master; she used to abuse you and disparage you. I forbade her, but she did not stop, and I rebuked her, but she did not abandon her habit. I have two sons like pearls from her, and she was my companion. Last night she began to abuse and disparage you. So I took a dagger, put it on her belly and pressed it till I killed her. Thereupon the Prophet (ﷺ) said: Oh be witness, no retaliation is payable for her blood.
Character Design tips when creating a Hijabi Muslim OC
Note: Sleeves or a head appearing is okay IN CERTAIN SITUATIONS. Like working in a garden and rolling up your sleeves OR going to the hair salon OR checking up in a hospital. In other Mazhab or fiqh, it's much more lenient and it's okay to show ankles or neck. (depends on country or Mazhab)
Note: Camel Hump hijab in certain tafsir could mean a haughty attitude rather than the camel hump shaped hijab, but there are also others that take it literally too, so it depends on the person.
September 2022 - Clashes broke out all over Iran between protesters and police, after religious “morality” police killed Jina Mahsa Amini, a 22-year old Kurdish woman for not wearing her headscarf correctly in their eyes.
