What a day! At first they were doing an all white contest at work so Suleima put together an outfit for that.(She borrowed her sis-in-law's brand new shoes without telling her. Then her mother-in-law comes looking for Suleima on her lunch break because mother-in-law wants someone to go to a funeral with her. An old acquaintaince had suddenly died and her family was burying her within 24 hours as per muslim tradition. The family requested people wear white. Mother-in-law was so impressed with Suleima's outfit that she took off her abaya/jilbab and gave it to Suleima to wear and they stopped at local boutique and picked up another one for the mother-in-law. After that Suleima went back to work. (the place had a work slowdown so her direct supervisor gave Suleima the time off) Before she could take off the abaya/jilbab, our overall supervisor comes out of his office and says "Gee, its one thing to be a muslim but did you have to be all hardcore about it?" All hell broke loose as a flying milkshake exploded over said supervisor's head. Every other muslima in the place had exploded in anger. Human Resources spent 2 hours taking complaints. I don't know who threw the milkshake but I'm glad they did though. Now the jerk had to change his shorts and sleeveless mesh t-shirt with his underarm hair sticking out. And this fool was complaining that Suleima was too modest? I told him that he needed to find a jilbab ASAP except it would be an insult to the jilbab and while he was at it he needed to shave his underarms and get some Sure! How Gross!

Fascinating story... We should be free to wear what we choose...whether it is niqab, abaya, or a bikini. Allah gave everyone free will... and the choice is supposed to be a free will choice. Allah wants people to have the freedom to choose to live for Him or not to live for Him. Otherwise why have a severe punishment prepared for the people who choose wrong?
