Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

so embarrassing, I can't believe I assumed

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
A few months ago I met a mom through my moms group. Its a Christian moms group, but open to moms of all faiths. This mom and I hit it off and today I invited her to attend mass with me. She looks at me odd like and says I hope you're not trying to convert me. I said I wasn't. She said you know Im muslim right? I said no. I just assumed she was Christian. But it makes sense. She was always asking religious questions that any Christian would know. But I thought it was because she's not from here. Anyway, im going to Juma? with her on Friday and she's coming to mass with me on Sunday. Im kinda looking forward to worshipping with her, but a bit nervous too. What can I expect? Should I buy a hijab to show respect?

Why don't you have on a scarf and  your neck is showing. Also I thought Muslim women didnt wear makeup

Quoting ABeautifulQadar:

Yes I cant believe I forgot to tell you to dress modestly too lol try to avoid anything too tight and make sure your legs and arms are covered to ankles and wrists. I have seen women in jeans in my mosque. I wear an abaya when I go. This pic is from our wedding celebration at home but this is what I would wear with hijab.

Its our choice. We are commanded in the Holy Quran to cover but not every Muslim woman does. Visit countries like Morocco and Egypt and there are plenty of Muslim women without one and wearing makeup. Is it a sin? Yes and Inshallah one day I will wear a hijab but right now I am not and its between me and God.

 I think this is awesome! I would love to have to go to different faiths. You are very lucky to have an open minded friend.

I know it is your choice, but I have heard so much about Muslim women dressing modestly, not showing their hair to certain males etc. IF the Holy Quran commands it and you disobey, then yes you have committed a sin. Just because others dont follow the command doesnt make it ok. you make Islam look like a buffet religion-I'll do a little of this, skip that and I think I will practice that. Why have you decided not to wear hijab? Oh and I know it is between you and Allah, but you put it out there to be questioned.

I would wear a hijab if I were going to a mosque, out of respect.

Typically I am very open minded, but there is no way I would go!

They also have slip on hajibs that are very retty.

I would love to buy one to keep, a nice pretty one with the pretty pin. I didn't realize I could just observe. I think that would be weird, i would love to participate. Are there certain prayers I should know? Will it be in English or Arabic? I know there are certain prayers we say in Latin, sorry if im asking a ton of questions.


Quoting ABeautifulQadar:

Thats kind of weird that she didnt tell you LOL I am Muslim and yes I suggest wearing a hijab out of respect.I dont wear hijab everyday but I do when I go to mosque. It doesnt have to be overwhelming a simple scarf draped over the head is ok and most mosques have them for you to use. I converted and was really nervous too when I first went! The men and women are separated men pray in front and women in the back. This way men are not looking at us inappropiatly when we all pray. Are you just going to observe or participate in prayer?
