Iam Muslim Girl

I love my hijab
I love waking up in the morning and putting my scarf on.
I love feeling closer to Allah.
I love the respect that I get from men and women. Muslim or not.
I love that I feel beautiful because of what is inside my heart and mind, not because of how people view my fashion sense or body.

Sure, its hard sometimes.
Sometimes people judge me because I wear hijab.
Sometimes people dislike my choice to be Muslim.

But those are some of the reasons why I AM Muslim. 
Allah does not judge you by the things you wear. Allah judges you by the goodness in your heart.
Allah does not dislike you for choices you’ve made so long as you ask his forgiveness. 

Islam is peace.
Allah subhana wa-ta’ala is indescribable.

Heart of Muslim

Looking up at the sky, searching for Allah most High
He rejected the way of worshipping Gods of clay
Prophet Ebrahim knew that Allah was near
And that the heart of a Muslim is sincere

Under the hot burning sun, he declared God is one
Though with stones on his chest, his Imaan would not rest
The Muadhin knew that right would conquer wrong
And the heart of a Muslim must be strong

It's the heart of a Muslim through the guidance of Islam
That makes you fair and kind and helpful to your fellow man
So living as a Muslim means that you must play a part
Allah looks not at how you look, but what is in your heart

In our poor meager state, little food on our plate
Mother said she was glad, always sharing what we had
When I asked how can we share what's not enough
She said the heart of a Muslim's filled with love

He said its time you should know, you will learn as you grow
That some people around will do what's bad to bring you down
Father said to be a star that's shining bright
For the heart of a Muslim does what's right

So whatever you, make sure your words are true
Honesty is the best, because life is a test
Even if it hurts so much you want to cry
For the heart of a Muslim does not lie
