So many designs to send out and so many emails to answer.

Living in a house with no wifi is some other level torture. 

New house is awesome though, so alhamdulillahhh.

Anonymous: How did your family react to your septum piercing? What did your mum and dad say? I have a cousin who wants one sooo baddd, but she doesnt know how her parents will react. Its nice though!

I got it done spontaneously cause it was something I’ve always wanted but held off on because my sister always told me she thought I’d look bad with it.

One day I just got it pierced. Then I told my sister who surprisingly loved it. Then my mom accidentally found out and although she doesn’t like it, she respects it.

Our parents forbid us from certain things with the intention to protect us and better prepare us for the future. After many years of convincing them, my parents realize I am an adult and I can handle the consequences of my actions. And I wouldn’t do anything to jeopardize their trust.

At the end of the day you do what you want. But be aware of the consequences of your actions. And if that means dealing with angry parents, assess the situation. If you think it’s something they can handle and eventually get over, take the risk at your own caution.

If you think they’ll throw a fit and rage over the septum till your death, is it worth it?

I knew mine would understand, so I went for it.

If you’ve messed up the first part of Ramadan, don’t mess up the last part. Start now and don’t give up. Don’t mourn over the past. Concentrate on now! Make taubah, hold your tongue, and work hard to get closer to your Lord!

If you think about it, we’re all “Ramadan Muslims.” Each of us is trying to come closer to Allah more than usual, this month. Don’t hate.
