Don't Mock Me Today Oneday I was collecting my children from school and there were a group of teenagers being cruel, laughing and shouting "Why are you wearing them clothes?", I smiled so calmly and to that I did say "Now be on your way your disrespect is all that shows". So they refused point blank to stop and continued to mock, I gritted my teeth as my jaw began to lock, "balti, curry, bud bud ding ding" as the group began to sing, people passing in the street also staring. I began to look down and then I just had to turn around, looking to them up that mound, "Do i look Pakistani or even Indian to you? My skin is white just like you", I shouted. After my reaction there was that silence, knowing behaviour like that can lead to such violence, I was happy and relieved my point was straight to their faces, so they'd know not to mock me in and around other places. Oh Allah forgive us if sometimes the arrogant causes the slightest bit of anger within us, help us to handle situations in a way that would please You most.. Ameen.
