    I liked how you wrote this post because I do resonate with what you’re saying and I think a lot of people probably feel the same way. I think we sometimes forget as Muslims we’re all on our own path and we tend to forget this as we sometimes look down at others or others look down at us for where we are in life spiritually or assume where we are spiritually. Never let what other people say put you down or discourage you from persisting. Thank you for sharing and InshaAllah make it easy for everyone, we are all different, we all practice differently since we are all on a different path. (

    I agree, when I started doing simple common acts of worship such as praying on time, attempting to pray Fajr, going to offer Taraweeh and reading the Quran more frequently, I was mad fun of by friends and family and was called ‘shareef’ or ‘maulvan’ till today as if it’s something I should be ashamed of or is too extreme. They thought I’d turn out boring. I take comfort in the Prophets’ lives as well.
    I suppose each of us was taught Islam or found their way to Islam in different ways so their understanding of Islam and the conduct they should have differs. Definitely, one must only worry about what Allah thinks, not people. One God is more than enough. JazakAllah for this! I would’ve loved to read this especially when I was younger and struggling but nevertheless, it’s nice to know how far I’ve come by relating to what you’ve written 🙂


    Totally agree with you!! May Allah ease it for everyone struggling. The struggle is real and worth it! And yes Friends in DEEN are Friends Indeed! 🌸

    Have to say I didn’t lose many friends when I became more practicing and started wearing hijab and most of my friends were non muslim. They were very supportive of my decision and said the hijab suited me.
