I am proud to be a Muslimah




I am proud of being a Muslim, because Islam, which is present as rahmatal lil'alamin, removes all forms of tyrannies that afflict my people and lifts my rank in human dignity. Because of the very high glory of Islam, I and my people are free from oppression as in the era of ignorance. In that era, where the birth of women was always considered a big disgrace to the family, especially the father. That is why they have the heart to bury my people alive and some have let live but in a low and despicable state.

I am happy to be a Muslim because there is no difference between us and the men, in terms of the scales of glory and the height of dignity in the sight of Allah subhanahu wata'ala. Because all of that is only distinguished in the name of taqwa. Allah subhanahu wata'ala confirms in His words:


"Whoever does good deeds, both men and women in the believer, then will we give him a good life and will give us a reward for them better than what they have earned." (An Nahl: 97)


We do not need to force ourselves to become men and enter the "region" of men only to be considered more noble, as taught by the notion of western emancipation. We women have their own duties, and our own way to reach heaven. The Prophet said: "If a wife has performed five daily prayers, and shaum (fasting) in the month of Ramadan, and keeps her cock from being haram and obeying her husband, then it will be invited: go to heaven from any door You like." (Narrated by Ahmad)
I'm proud of being a Muslim, because I'm not as humiliated as an animal. That's because Robbku's order teaches that women must close their genitals. Allah SWT said:


"O Prophet, say to your wives, your daughters, and the wives of the believers: Let them stretch their headscarves throughout their bodies. That is so that they are easier to recognize and therefore they are not disturbed. Allah is Forgiving, Most Merciful. " (Surat al-Ahzab: 59).


But as human as a woman, we also like decorating. But Islam teaches that we only become jewelry for our husbands, therefore we also decorate ourselves in their own homes and only for our husbands, not outside the home or in the middle of the road to be sold to bitches, men do not believe.


Relax I became a Muslim, because God taught the men to always appreciate and treat me and my family well. They are the men Who are the most glorious human beings of the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said, "Verily, among the perfection of Believers faith is the best of their morals and gentleness toward their families".
Umar r.a, friend of Rasulullah SAW, known to have a strong character even said, "It should be the husband's attitude towards his wife like a child, but when looking for what is there (the real situation) then he is a man."


I am happy to be a Muslim, because justice for us is guaranteed in Islam, even in matters of wealth. Allah SWT indeed determines that the share of men from obtaining inheritance is twice that of the inheritance of daughters, but this Shari'a is in harmony with the nature of men who are obliged to provide for and lead women. Thus, the Shari'a is fair and I as a woman need not worry. Even though women get a small share, women like me can enjoy themselves. This is in accordance with the following word of Allah,


"Husbands are the leaders of women, because Allah has preferred some of them (men) to others, and because they (men) provide a living from their property." (QS An-Nisa: 34)


There is still much glory of Islam that lifts me and my people as a woman. How is it that Islam justifies me and protects me as a noble woman? It is only Islam that I can make the best life guide, for me to inherit my offspring, and only with the calm of Islam and the cold of life becomes a woman feel. Then how am I not proud to be a Muslim?
