I feel so sore. And stiff. And I’ve a migraine that makes me feel like my head is the size of a watermelon. Can I wear a pillowcase as my Eid outfit ‘cause ya girl having a hard time getting out of bed.
where do u buy your clothes online for desi clothes ?
Honestly, my mom orders them all. She has multiple bookmark files of random desi sites. I don’t know how she finds them. She just texts me pictures of random outfits and I say whether I like it or not.
The two I can think of off the top of my head are utsav and cbazaar!
Ya Allah, please help us, please cure us of all our ailments, forgive us of our sins, for Muslim men and Muslim women, for believing men and believing women, those who are with us and those who have passed away.
Ya Allah, please accept our fasting of this month, please accept our prayers, please…
I understand that Eid is a celebration but why is it custom to dress extravagantly? I'm a revert and only have a few simple abayas as options to wear :/
Honestly, at the end of the day it’s not even the dressing nice that counts. Its being with family and friends and your loved ones, all coming together. Dressing nice is just a perk. I think since it is that one holiday we all rejoice, we try our best to make it awesome, and to some that means dressing up, it’s the one day of the year they can go all out and just be happy.
Do what you are comfortable with, work with what you have, years from now you’ll remember what you did and who you did it with, probably not what they wore :)
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?
