November 01, 2023, 03:44:32 pm Zainab_M: Allahhuma ameen .. ameen.
November 01, 2023, 03:43:43 pm Ruhi_Rose: Yes .. making lots of dua everyday ..... watching those real life video clips, my face feels wet with tears all the time.  May ALLAH grant the best to these wonderful, brave & steadfast martyrs,  Ameen ya Allah.
November 01, 2023, 03:38:26 pm Zainab_M: Keep praying, praying a lot for Gaza. It's worse than a prison .. it's a concentration camp.  Children as young as 10 or 11 are having to care for their younger siblings ages 2, 3 and 4 becoz many have lost both parents.  It's a very, very, very tearful situation there.
October 26, 2023, 03:40:19 pm N. Truth Seeker: Don't forget to look up MV Blog Zainab's Lounge for our Gaza updates.
October 20, 2023, 04:24:44 pm Zainab_M: Right sister Heba.  Gaza hospital bombing has the fingerprints of Israel all over it.  For Israel this is no big crime.  They have done this and much worse many times in the past and intend to do the same and worse many more times in near future.
October 20, 2023, 04:20:20 pm Heba E. Husseyn: Catching Zionist lies isn't hard. Soon after Gaza hospital bombing killing and maiming hundreds, Israel was quick to accuse Islamic Jihad of a misfired rocket.  That didn't sound plausible because IJ does not have such sophisticated bombing devices.  Zionist lie was fully exposed when anglican archbishop of Jerusalem,Hosam Naoum,  said today that 3 or 4 days prior to boming Israel had warned Gaza hospital to evacuate. Yet CIA claims in its flawed analysis that the rocket did not come from Israel.  But conveniently does not explain how Israel could have known 4 days earlier that a "misfired" rocket from IJ was coming.  Yet on the basis of this flawed & bias analysis of CIA, Biden is comforting Israel he believes Israel didn't do that war crimes bombing.
July 29, 2023, 03:02:07 am Zainab_M: Yesterday was Ashura, Muharram 10, 1444 (July 27, 2023).  Read about this very tragic day and details of the world's greatest 7th century revolutionary: WHO WAS HUSSEIN.

Salams dear all.  This is interesting which I want to share.  Here is a painting portraying the aristocratic European society of mid 1800s by the German artist, Henri-Guillaume Schlesinger, well known and respected in Europe and Britain.  The art is captioned light heartedly with a spirit of jest, 'courtly scene with a maid.'  lol 😅   At present if such a painting was released with a similar caption, the West would call it 'sexual harassment' and the author would be booed.

Walaykom As-Salam and well observed Sister Ruhi.   I couldn't agree more.  Even though in present times immorality is far more in the western society than back then, the hypocrisy is also more.  This kind of art could turn its author into a social outcast and a tabooed misogynist.

Nowadays it would be taken as sexual harassment because the western culture commands that it's fine for people to share their beds with their colleagues after work hours.  So there's no need for dramatic courtship as the only gesture of permissibleness.  Back then the minds of the western society took a turn towards the gutters, and now they're fully dipped into the gutters.
