Restoring an excellent thread by Shaikh Fusoos posted here on Sunniforum.
As much as we want to ignore it there are many cases of sexual, mental, physical, psychological abuse that happen in our community.
Girls as young as 10 have gotten sexually abused, touched, fondled, by an older cousin/brother, many wives are mentally and physically abused by their husbands, and many husbands are under heavy psychological pressure from their wives. This type of abuse destroys lives, then those shattered lives destroy other lives and the vicious cycle of abuse continues.
People hate their abuser and later on mimic the same abuse. Girls who are abused feel that is their only worth in this world and their natural talents and god given abilities are totally gone to waste. Abused people suffer a lot unnecessarily.
There are very few resources these people have to use for help, in almost every case the victim of these abuses feels embarrassed, humiliated, and scared to even talk about the abuse that happened to them. Many times all the victim wants is to just yell their frustration at what happened to them, just to cry out. They just want to open their mouth and say, "Look what happened to me." I want to create a place where these victims can come and just yell, just scream. This place is called Sayha. The loud yell. The scream. The terrible cry.
Insha'Allah this place will be available soon for people to come and scream about what happened to them, what they can do here on out, or maybe write a letter to their abuser telling them how it felt, or if they were abused and have gotten help to now come and tell their happy story, or just let out their frustrations.
Until it is open if anyone comes across this thread and wishes to yell and scream here anonymously or if you want to share your name you can do that also, it is totally up to you, but if you want to yell here feel free to yell here. This is your place to yell, scream, say what you want to say. No one will talk down to you. No one will lecture you. No one will read a list of guidelines and advice about what to do. No advice unless you ask for it. It is just a place for you to at least open your mouth against your abuse.
It takes a community to solve the community problems.
