Maybe its the writing, maybe its the eloquence, maybe its the content, maybe its the passion, maybe its the unbridled unabashed exposure of a driven heart's ideal...but I am getting goosebumps.
One yearns to take the journey you wish for the witness and to love these 'ta marbootas' as you have loved them.on May 10, 2005 2:49 AM

There's no real point, but it doesn't matter. Lessons for sisters, many there are.on May 10, 2005 3:42 PM
"I'll let Haifa stand as a challenge to all sisters, because it seems that the sisters have lost "it", which is something I predicted three years ago, when I wrote about another 'Aroos for another Ali for another story"
Sisters have lost what it means to be a true women, very few have it, in America, the west at least.
Perhaps there are still some eastern women with this quality of 'idealness' or perfection you are referring to.
Many sisters have a bad mix of western feministic ideals(so called feminism) and a limited notion of islamic ideals(hijab, few sunnahs, qur'an, salah) but as far as spirit of sacrifice, devotion, and serving the family is gone: look at the high divorce rates.
women are mostly responsible for the high divorce rates in USA, they marry against their parents wishes and then divorce against everyone's wishes. They think they are on their own, their selfish endeavors knows no measure.
Br.Talal, I dont know whether you will ever find an ideal woman in this age or not in reality.
But keep writing brother....
Assalam u alaikum.
Hmmm interesting but we did not get any glimpse into what is it that makes Haifa unique or what sets her apart from the sisters of this dunya. Zayna is my favorite name and it has been copyrighted by me in my family so that no one else in my family can name their daughters Zaina, hehe. It is indeed a pretty name :)
Jazakallah khair and salam
"women are mostly responsible for the high divorce rates in USA, they marry against their parents wishes and then divorce against everyone's wishes. They think they are on their own, their selfish endeavors knows no measure."
Sounds a bit harsh dont you think? I dont think that all the blame of forgetting the sunnah can be placed primarily on one gender. Today's brothers arent exactly the shining likeness of the Companions either. Nearly all of us are screwed up and thats why we have trouble making marriages work.on May 11, 2005 2:16 AM
I am not particularly in a favorable mood at this very moment, so I will not add fuel to any sort of "fire".
But, I think I mostly agree with Br. Ahmed, he may sound harsh, but there is big reality to what he is saying, especially for us muslims in America.

as salaamu 'alaykum,
everybody's correct in this comment box. women are messed up...and so are men. there is no specific gender to blame cuz it takes two to tango. mothers should teach thier kids proper islamic ideals from the very first *day* of birth; and fathers need to provide a good example to their kids - halaal rizq/patience/financial support for family/salaah/adaab etc.
I love the name 'Haadiyah' -- its very feminine, has beautiful meaning...and it has a taa marbootah.on May 11, 2005 5:16 AM
