    Masha'Allah nice poem.

    Poem written by : Maryam Elbenhawy




    I'm eyeballed from head to toe
    I notice this everywhere I go
    I look different because I am so
    I am a Muslim, and that's for you
    To know...
    I cover myself, including my face
    Others may see it as strong faith
    I follow what the Quran says, and
    desire to appear
    As the Mothers of the Believers did
    People still see me as weird
    Even the Muslims, they hide in fear
    But why feel ashamed from something
    That dignifies women of your faith?
    Why exploit the beauty that Allah has
    Ordained?
    True this is a kafer country,
    But should I fear not?
    Only from the One True Allah
    Who created me from a clot
