we are not normal.
“Be like a salmon. Swim upstream. Swim against the current.” – Advice from the Speaker at the Awards Ceremony at MIST Nationals.
Be different from the crowd. When all the girls are wearing mini dresses and booty shorts – wear your long pants and hijab. When all the boys are wearing shorts above their knees – wear the shorts covering your knees (to all you brothers who think it’s okay to tell us what true hijab is but fail to cover your knees ahem). And since people bash a lot on the girls – here’s for you boys: When all the others are wearing jeans normally – you fold them up above your ankles no matter how awkward it looks! Make it the norm guys – start a trend!
When everyone else in this western world is constantly pressuring you to do haraam – swim against the current – do what’s good, do the halal no matter how many obstacles are in the way.
