SHE WAS MY SISTER... Her cheeks were worn and sunken and her skin hugged her bones. That didn't stop her though; you could never catch her not reciting Qur'an. Always vigil in her personal prayer room Dad had set up for her. Bowing, prostrating, raising her hands in prayer. That was the way she was from dawn to sunset and back again, boredom was for others. As for me I craved nothing more than fashion magazines and novels. I treated myself all the time to videos until those trips to the rental place becames my trademark. As they say, when something becomes habit people tend to distinguish you by it. I was negligent in my responsibilities and laziness characterized my salah. One night, I turned the video off after a marathon three hours of watching. The adhan softly rose in that quiet nght. I slipped peacefully into my blanket. Her voice carried from her prayer room. "Yes? Would you like anything Noorah?" I said.

The mother with one eye.

posted by sehrii246muslimah on 15th February 2013 - 0 comments
THE MOTHER WITH ONE EYE! My mom only had one eye. I hated her… She was such an embarrassment. She cooked for students and teachers to support the family. There was this one day during elementary school where my mom came to say hello to me. I was so embarrassed. How could she do this to me? I ignored her, threw her a hateful look and ran out. The next day at school one of my classmates said, “EEEE, your mom only has one eye!” I wanted to bury myself. I also wanted my mom to just disappear. I confronted her that day and said, “If you’re only gonna make me a laughing stock, why don’t you just die?”
