Well this is my first attempt at a blog... May Allah guide me on this journey. I have started this blog so I can post my thoughts on Islam and how it has changed my life.
Over the last few months I have come to make several changes in my life so that I can be a better Muslim. I left a job I had for 7 years because they were not very cooperative with my new religion. When I asked for a place to pray the HR department told me that they could not help me. I ended up finding conference rooms and locking the door, but I resented that they would not even try. Due to that I didn't dare wear hijab at work. I wore it everywhere else, but not there. I started to look for a new job and interviewed in hijab. I could tell when some places were shocked, but there was one place that didn't care at all... and after a $10,000 pay cut (waaa) I was free! Its been 2 months and I'm loving the fact that no man sees my hair but my husband!
I look forward to learning more and moving forward with Islam.
