Don’t name your daughter Sumayyah if you’re not willing to let her make sacrifices for her beliefs. Don’t name your daughter Aisha if you’re going to tell her she can’t learn and become a scholar. Don’t name your daughter Nusaybah if you don’t want her to fight tooth and nail for what she believes in. Don’t name your daughter Maryam if you don’t expect greatness of character from her. Don’t name your daughter Aasiya if you’re not willing to let her be a part of the fight against oppressors.
~ Asmaa Hussein ( (via rabbrakha)
I’ve never met a man who was stronger than me. Physically yes, of course, my arms are tiny little noodles, but emotionally and mentally? No. Women aren’t build stronger, but we are made stronger, forced stronger. Unfortunately through societies unnecessary hardships and oppression of women. We deal with violence, harassment, belittlement, and having our humanity stripped of us, and then we have to learn how to handle all of that and do it gracefully and learn how to protect our dignity and strengthen who are without the help of any outside forces since their all against us. Men can’t handle that. They just can’t. The world is build for them, when they don’t get their way, when the world isn’t what they assumed it should be, they dissolve, they break down, they don’t understand it and refuse to adapt. Like angry babies.
