Stress can be a postive

Chasing meaning is better for your health than trying to avoid discomfort.

On 29th July, two students were killed and 12 injured when a bus plowed into a bus stand in Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh. In a country where such deaths were frequent, this could have been just another body on just another day.

But the students of Bangladesh have had enough. Enough of the selfishness, corruption and rampant denial of human rights. They have taken to the streets to demand justice, order and law in a country where all three are rare.

Students of Bangladesh – I salute you and pray for your safety and success.
You make us proud. In the words of Kazi Nazrul Islam, Amra jodi na jaagi ma, kemne shokal hobe?

I was lucky to be chosen for a mobility engagement from EY that sent me to Bangladesh to work with an international NGO focusing on “Women’s Economic Empowerment through Strengthening Market Systems” WEESMS.

What Islam REALLY says about women UNMASKED! This sheikh says:
“You should ask the question, when men are married how can they teach and learn?
Because in Islam, men have the responsibility, not the women… In Islamic law, men have to provide accommodation and expenses. Women just sit around and do nothing. Women are free anyway! In Islamic law, women are free. It is men who should be worried and concerned about responsibilities post marriage. In Islamic law the duty of the house is for the men. That includes food. The women have only one duty in Islam and that is to teach. Ask any madhahb. And after marriage that becomes easier. Husband takes care of the house and women teach and learn – but we don’t recognise this!
When women do some of those work for us, when they cook your food – they are doing you a favour! And we never thank them! It is not her duty – it is your duty!”
*insert sacrcasm* No wonder it is incompatible with the western world!!!
Why aren’t lectures like this – that happen in almost every mosque or muslim gathering in the world – shown on TV?
All you need to do is broaden google searches and newsfeed settings to see the consistently amazing, knowledeable and overall badass women that have guided Islam and Muslims through millenia!
