Done watching the first episode of “Shanakht” a Pakistani drama. Thank you FF so much for suggesting it to me ^___^
It’s a story about a girl Quratulain (Annie) who is different from everyone. Different as in she is a religious person and no one likes the change in her. She got inspired by her friend Aisha and decided to become like her. Her sister Kashaf is totally opposite. Both sisters are like day and night. Annie’s father is supportive of her but not her mother. Annie has a cousin named Hashim. They both are university students. Hashim’s parents decide to ask for Annie’s hand and Annie’s family is also interested in Hashim. But what will be Hashim’s and Annie’s decision?
The writer chose a nice topic. Annie’s mother is a very, I don’t know how to define her. She is very strange. She wears a locket which has Allah written and she thinks by doing this she has become a true Muslim. What Annie is doing, is what a true Muslim does. But no one is appreciating her because in their circle on one dresses like her.
A special mention of Hashim’s friend. Whatever his name is. He deserves a slap actually countless slaps. He has such a cheap mentality. I want to strangle him.
I’m a proud Muslim and yes, I wear hijab and cover my face as well. I started wearing abaya since I was like 10. I remember when I visited Pakistan at the age of 14, everyone was surprised to see me. Why are you covering your face? I answered, because I like to. I don’t want anyone else to see how I look. Why would I show my face to strangers? Don’t you guys find strange when a random person stares and glares at you? I like who I am. When I decided to wear hijab, there was no opposition from my parents. Why? Because my mum does the same and I as a daughter am following what my mother does and it’s in my religion.
I used to cover my face in college too and a girl asked me, why? My answer was simple. I like to and its in the religion. The next day that girl came to college with her face covered. Everyone has their own preferences but when talking about Islam, you can’t make mends as you like. It’s a religion and its to be followed as advised.
Let me clear one thing. In Islam, you can marry your cousin and a man can marry four women at one time.
