Feeling bad about feeling bad

1 Comment

One of the things I’ve noticed since becoming a Muslim is that I now feel reluctant to say so if I am feeling a little down or just plain fed up. Why do I feel more reluctant now than I did before? I put it down to the expectation upon us as women – we feel perhaps that it’s wrong to complain about what Allah has given to us, and yet we are still human so why can’t we say so? Perhaps there is a lack of compassion in this regard in the community, or it is considered ungrateful to complain when there are others in worse situations.

Either way, I feel it’s important that I don’t lose myself – in my religion or in my family – so I’m putting it out there……today I feel horrible! My head hurts, my husband snored all through the night, I have a horrible rash on my legs and my unborn child is raging havoc on my body!!!!!

There. I feel much better. InshAllah things will improve. Make dua for me sisters. JAK, Noora xx

  1. Insha Allah, we will keep you in our prayers sister ;). I am expecting, too. It is a real challenge. After all we are human 😛 and life gets the best of us, too. Recite ‘Hawqala’ to facilitate inshaAllah, xo!
