"Negative body image is a problem for many women
and while hijab is shown to lessen this issue,
no one isimmune.
Of course our media feeds us unrealistic
Not only are models 20 pounds
underweight but they're severely airbrushed. But the
issue goes far deeper. Somewhere along the way we
came to believe that if we were beautiful enough and
skinny enough we would attain a perfect love. That
love is for women with clear skin, perfect figures and
"good" hair. Here's reality sisters: Stunning,
exceptional beauty doesn't make you more worthy of
love. It doesn't make the husband you marry treat you
like a queen. In fact research shows that when looks
are an important consideration in a decision to marry,
the marriage is 40% *more* likely to end in divorce.
Beauty is common. Not just because someone will
always be more beautiful or because it will eventually
fade but because it actually immediately fades with
familiarity. It stops mattering very quickly. And here's
another radical notion: Attaining human love actually
cannot and should not be a goal at all. It is rather a
fringe benefit of seeking God's love. If you work to
beautify your heart as a seeker of God, you will attract
the right kind of human love for the right reasons. This
beauty grows with time. It is fed with familiarity. It
deepens with the scars of life. And it's available to
everyone" "- @daliamogahedMogahed .
My Name is Annika (or Aisha) and I’m a 17 years old convert/revert from Germany.
When I was 14, I became interested in Islam. I had a turkish girl in my class and she spoke with me often about Islam and made some presentations about it. I always asked her some questions about Islam but she could not answer to everything. So I started to read the Quran and to read about Islam. I noticed, that I identify myself with Islam with time. Also I searched a sense for my life and the Christian religion wasn’t the right for me, I felt uncomfortable and I didn’t feel the near to God. In Islam I felt it and Islam also gave me to all my questions answers.
My friends took me to the mosque after some months and in the Mosque I felt so much love. My heart was so warm and everything felt right. I felt the near of Allah, it was so beautiful. Also I wore Hijab for the first time that day and I said I never want to take it off.
After some days I decided to convert to Islam Alhamdulillah even if it was a hard decision because I was afraid.
At 13.02.2017 converted to Islam at the age of 15. 3 Weeks later I started to wear Hijab.
To today I didn’t regret anything. Alhamdulillah for everything, Islam is the best what happened to me🌹
Allahu akbar! 😭💕 May Allah bless your life and hereafter 🙌
