God has delivered me from boredom this weekend!
Instead of writing a complaining post I can actually talk about something interesting in my life! (My life is very boring)
Remember the Luncheon? It was a success alhamdulillah, and insha'allah we'll be planning more in the future with even more high school msa's.
As usual, I got there an hour late (Muslim Standard Time anyone?!)and the boy:girl ratio was roughly 1:10, that's pathetic ladies and gentlemen. I mean I'm not for excessive mixing (keyword excessive) but come on, where do all of the young muslim men go now a days? Most likely the mall or wherever else their parents let them get away with.
We had rice(briyani, bariis, whatever you want to call it), ice cream, chicken sandwiches, all halal! :DDDDD
Now the two groups were evenly dispersed with Sunnis and Shiites and although everyone hates stating what 'sect' they follow it's inevitable. I follow what I know is the right way, you follow what you know is the right way. Although most Sunnis would interject here with a "what you THINK is the right way". I'm a Sunni by the way and love all of my Muslim brethren and sistren.
Enough of Friday, TODAY I attended what I thought would be a nice sister gathering.
It was a sister gathering, but when I imagined quran reading and kumbaya around a crackling fire turned out to be a partay. We all danced to Indian, Arab and Somali music. Belly dancing ring a bell?
(Niiko is for you Naz) I loved the different ethnic backgrounds of each sister and how we all had one unifying belief.
The evening ended with a trip to the mosque and an all girls' basketball game in the dark. I suggest you try that one day and see how it feels when all the girls look the same in abayat.
Alhamdulillah for such a great weekend! Too bad tomorrow is work day and I have to do homework and other boring school-related activities.
