Eid 2017

A little message to my fellow Muslims all over the globe,
when we're celebrating Eid this year, don't forget those who can't eat despite Ramadhan ended,
remember those who has no home,
those who wear the same clothes over and over again because they can't afford new ones,
those who have wants to celebrate like us but has to defend their home from invaders,
those who has less than us,
those who are sick,
and those who has left us.

Celebrate in moderation. Create memories. Forgive and ask for forgiveness. And most of all, be thankful to Allah for giving us the chance for a great Ramadhan. Hope to meet this month again next year, Insya Allah.

p/s: Will post my Eid celebration pics soon :)

Daddies, your daughters adore you.

But..

Hmm, this type of posts always comes with a 'but'. If I want to say I'm writing this because of personal experience, that wouldn't be entirely correct. I bet most of daughters feels this, or have felt this.

Dad,
we adore you. But please don't get mad at us for things we've done nothing wrong of. If we are, sure. We completely understand. But please don't do it if we're not guilty.

Dad,
we adore you. But don't use sarcasm to get what you want. Just tell us nicely what you want us to do, and we'll do it for you. We grew up being told what to do nicely and politely, and we do the same to other people. To be told sarcastically by you is a pain in our hearts. Yet, we do it anyway. Why? Because we adore you.

Dad,
we adore you. But please listen when what you do is wrong or questionable. We listened to you when we was growing up, why can't you give us the fair chance, by just listening to what we have to say? It is not difficult, we promise.

One of the most messed up things I've ever watched is...

Recently, I watched The Handmaid's Tale, an adaptation of a book with the same title by Margaret Atwood made by Hulu Originals. It's about Offred, a Handmaid who's job is to bore children for one of the leader of the community of Gilead, Commander Fred Waterford. Mrs. Waterford is sterile, as most of the women in this story which is set in present time. Offred is one of many Handmaids. She was caught while trying to run away from Gilead with her husband and daughter. She is stuck in the house of Commander Waterford and forced to perform sex with him so she'd get pregnant. Women in this story doesn't have lots of rights, and some women hurt other women to keep them in line to do men's biddings.

It's messed up.

I don't what religion is behind the creation of Gilead, and I want to know. It's not Islam for sure. For those who thinks otherwise, Islam is a religion that gives women rights. Women can have jobs, have possessions, and learn. Women are docum…
