#BlackMuslimGirlFly®  means so much. It represents a collection of characteristics we hold as Black Muslim Girls and Women. It comes from our daily practice of worship through living our way of life. Being a Muslim is more than the word “religion,” it’s a WAY OF LIFE. This is the meaning of the word “deen.”

*One of the characteristics we hold as #BlackMuslimGirlFly®  is PATIENT. How many times have we had to take a deep breath and say, “MashaAllah,” and keep it moving? How many of you can relate? I learned by watching my mother raise seven children. And, I’m still learning how to hold this to be true: #BlackMuslimGirlFly®  is also PATIENT.  Leave a comment if you can relate.*

“By the passing of time,

Indeed, mankind is in a state of loss,

Except for those who have believed and done righteous deeds, And advised each other to truth,

And advised each other to patience.”

The Noble Qur’an, Chapter 103 (Surah ‘Asr)
