“Every time someone says we don’t need feminism anymore, things like this come to mind. Due to insufficient dowry this young girl’s husband lacerated her face with a razor blade.” (Gwalior - India) - ph. Adrian Fisk

"A few years ago, I got a call on my cell phone from a twelve year old child from my village. He was calling me from a bus stop. He’d taken a bus into the city alone, and he was calling me to ask if I could help him find a way to go to school. Both of his parents had died of AIDS, and he had no money for tuition. I told him to stay where he was, and left work immediately to pick him up. At first I was very mad at him. He should not have travelled alone. But then I looked at him and I saw myself. I’d also been desperate to go to school after my father was killed, but we had no money. So even though I was suffering myself, I told him I would try to help him. My salary was not enough, so I tried many things to get the money. After work, I went to the landfill to hunt for recyclables. But after I paid to have them cleaned, there was no money left. Now I’m trying to make bricks. I have a small operation in the village to make bricks, and I sell them in the city. It doesn’t make much money, but it’s enough to pay tuition for the boy and three of his siblings.”

Some people preach about Islam in a way that makes one feel like they must be perfect - free from any sin, no mistakes, and not an ounce flaws. We’re human, remember that. Perfection is an attribute that only God Himself can possess. And this is why God will always be much more merciful than us, because He comprehends that we are weak while we expect people to be free from all flaws.

Never be afraid to apologize to your child. If you lose your temper and say something in anger that wasn’t meant to be said, apologize. Children need to know that adults can admit when they are wrong.

This is so, so important.

“Last year I was in Vegas for my birthday. We were staying at a hotel where people on the VIP level have separate entries. I got on the VIP elevator with my family, all women, because we had gotten a VIP suite on the 27th floor. There was an elder white woman on the elevator, and she started gripping her purse closer to her and started inching away from us. She thought we were following her. She got off at the 26th floor, and as she did she seemed surprised that we could afford the 27th floor because we were still going up. I pulled out my room card as she was getting off, and her expression changed [when she saw it] and she was just shocked. I thought maybe it was just in my head, but after we got off my mom said, “did you notice that woman staring at us?” So it wasn’t just me, the lady was actually frightened at first and then surprised. But it’s ok, it happens all the time.”
