A little help is needed

Salaam to all of you.  I pray you are all doing well....

I have been following Mrs. Khans blog.  She is a follower of mine and a new convert to Islam.  However, for some reason her blog does not show up when you click on her name.  She has posed some questions on some posts that I think merit a look at by you Sisters out there.  Like is hijab obligatory.  I know it is, but since I am new too, I dont have the "exact words" for her.  Can you all go over to her blog and help me out with some questions she has?  Its a very good blog of hers and she is genuinely trying to be a good Muslim, Mashallah!

Paris Hilton and Islam???

Shocked, but in a good way!  Alhamdulillah!  Do you think it's a Hoax?

Can we trust the calm???

Things seem to have turned to calm here in Bahrain.  Can we trust it?  It seems oddly strange to me.  I grew up in the Midwest and usually when the air became calm, it ended in one hell of a storm!

People have returned to the roundabout and there is a sense of jubilation and party like atmosphere.  One question I have....Would you take a child down to a protest spot where just days earlier your brothers, sons, husbands were shot at and killed??!(see the small child)

I am glad no one is getting shot at and I pray for a peaceful end to this situation.  I dont see it ending anytime soon as they are now calling for the King to step down.

May God watch over us and protect us all.

May God help us all...

Please pray for the people of Libya as they are being brutally murdered as we speak..  May God watch over and protect them.

As Salaam Alaikum everyone....

Today I pose a question for you.  Women traveling alone, without her mahram.  Is this acceptable in todays society?  How about in case of dire emergency?  Should a woman be able to travel to see a sick relative or attend a funeral without her husband having to accompany her?

I am so angry and frustrated as I sit here and wait for my husband to get leave so I can go see my mother in the United States.   She is very ill and in ICU. When I first got the call she was in serious condition.  She is stable now, but still not out of the woods. I was supposed to go last Monday but now am forced to wait as my husband can not travel with me for another few days.  I have already taken off from work.

I am 34 years old.  I have been on my own in life since the age of 17.  I was married before for 13 years.  I have traveled MANY times on my own and can take care of myself.

Have any of you encountered this?

I honestly feel like grabbing my passport and going.  I never thought I would be in this situation.  Helplessness.  I want to grab my passport and run.  I just may.

One year ago today I said yes to my husband...YES I WILL MARRY YOU......  The rest is history.  This year has been filled with ups and downs.  Things that I thought would never happen to me have.  Its funny how things have a way of changing your perspective on things.

I know this next year will be filled with a lot more changes and InshaAllah, I will come out of it a stronger, better person.

Now its time to focus on that baby issue!  :)
