    Asalamu alaikum, I was up at 4am crying, life is hard and people will hurt you if you let them. I made dua asking Allah for His Mercy, His Forgiveness, His Blessing, His Guidance and I found this lecture. I felt like Allah is as He says, All Knowing, I felt like His Deen Islam is a refuge and champion for women, and is perfect, and that He heard me. I have been searching for more than just poorly interpreted hadith about how women are the majority of the hellfire, that we are ungreatful, and defficient in our intelligence, and not as good as men. We are beautiful, we are imperfect, and we are jewels. Allah loves us even when some treat us like things less than dirt. It’s tough being a girl, but I wouldn’t change it for anything!!! Allah u Akbar x3!!!!!
