Good Deeds #CalligrafistThoughts

"Do not regard any good deed insignificant, even meeting your brother with a cheerful face." ~ The Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him.

 Take a moment to break away from the distractions of this world and purposefully to do something for someone who you could get away with not doing anything for. Buy a gift, send a letter, help out with a chore, make a donation, anything that you know you can do that would make someone Else's day better.

 It's remarkable at times how little it takes to make someone feel good and special.

The Women Behind the “Modest Fashion” Revolution

With the first-ever International Muslim Fashion and Design Festival taking place in Toronto next month, hijabi style is having a moment. Jennifer Goldberg [Via - Flare.com] talks to five chic women on the forefront of the movement...

When was the last time your clothes made a religious and political statement? For women who don the hijab, a head covering that some Muslims wear as a symbol of modesty, religion is front and center in every fashion choice they make.

Muslim women may choose to wear hijab for any number of reasons, from strict observance to feminist statement—in her new book Laughing All the Way to the Mosque (Harper Collins Canada, 2014), Little Mosque on the Prairie creator Zarqa Nawaz writes that she first put on the scarf to rebel against her parents. But the head covering has also come under criticism for being a symbol of women’s oppression. The provocative activist group Femen have spoken out against hijab with their notorious topless protests. In France, women are banned from wearing headscarves [or any religious symbols] in state schools, and in 2013 the Parti Québécois proposed a similar controversial law for public sector workers.

Yet the world of hijabi style is growing—as evidenced by the first ever International Muslim Fashion and Design Festival taking place in Toronto in late August. This “modest fashion” revolution is thanks in no small part to women who proudly flaunt their chic headscarves and modest outfits on Instagram and YouTube. But these Islamic fashionistas have themselves come under scrutiny by some in the Muslim community, who argue that posting makeup tutorials and stylish selfies are not modest acts.

They asked five Muslim women who work in fashion how they experience wearing hijab in a decidedly immodest industry. Here’s what they told Flare Magazine.
My Sister Yasmine Yasmine Was one of The five "Hijabis" featured...

“The women in my family were the ones who taught me how to style my hijab. I remember when Salt N’ Peppa came out my older sister wore her headscarf asymmetrically. Some women pick their shoes out first, but I went through a stage where my outfits were styled around my hijab. Dressing modestly and wearing hijab has really made me so creative. If there’s a disaster on set, I think I’m one of the best people to have as a wardrobe stylist because all my life I’ve been working with clothing to repurpose or “hijabify” it, if you will.”
