“To them she wore the costume of the oppressed from distant lands and was the poster child of backwardness in a forward thinking world. To her, their faces bore the costume of the ignorant, and they were poster children for gross close-mindedness in an open-minded, ever changing world”
Umm Zakiyyah, Footsteps

“She needed to hear the reminder, the reminder that there was more to this life than her heart. Even if it could never be mended completely. She had her soul. She had the Hereafter. She had her faith.”
Umm Zakiyyah, Footsteps

“Latifah says don't stress too much though. She says if I'm patient, inshaaAllah, we'll all be together in Jannah.

But I do now.”
Umm Zakiyyah, Realities of Submission
