Control your anger.
Control your tongue.
Stop talking about other people, unless you are speaking good of them.
Give excuses to people.
Remember your own short-comings before you think of another person’s.
Pray during the good times.
Do what your mother says, help her out immediately when she asks you to do something.
Don’t argue with people when you’re right. Shut your mouth when you’re wrong.
Help those in need.
When people ask you to do things, do them, don’t procrastinate, they’re relying on you.
it’s the simple things, why can’t we do the simple things?

A few rights given to women in Islam, a good 1,400+ years ago, when women were viewed as completely subservient to men, and people practiced female infanticide:
- Owning, Managing, and Maintaining Property
- Custody of Children
- Access to Education
- Choice of Spouse
- Keeping One’s Maiden Name After Marriage
- Equal Participation in the Political Process
- Spiritual Equality
The United Nations granted women these rights in the Declaration of Human Rights. In 1948. When many countries still had not given women the right to vote. In fact, over a thousand years after the death of Prophet Mohammad (pbuh), in 1586, French Catholics were still debating whether or not women possessed souls.
I’m so sick and tired of people who don’t practice Islam telling me about my religion. You really think millions of women have been coerced into believing in a tradition that views them as subservient? Get real.
