What does H.I.J.A.B mean to you?

28 Sep

H- hindered! Held back from the pleasures in life.
I- indoctrined by the men in her life
J- juxtaposed with the women of ‘our’ society
A- anti freedom, anti feminist
B- Bored! Of her sheltered life and longing to be like ‘us’.

H- heightened! My status in islam!
I- intelligent, insightful and yes independent
J- jannah at my feet when i become a mother
A- Ambitious, like no other.
B- Brave. Brave enough to cover herself, in a society that allows women to exchange their bodies for wealth.
