High-class Muslim sisters.
I am Your Classy Muslim Sister, a 28-year-old Muslim sister of Moroccan descent living in the Netherlands. I am also the oldest child in my family, which makes me the classy older sister to two younger siblings. Being the oldest daughter, a Muslimah, and growing up in western society, has taught me much about western elegance. The western version of elegance is beautiful, but for a Muslimah, it misses one crucial aspect: modesty. As a Muslim woman in a very Westernized world, you could say that I almost live a double life. I think many Muslim women can relate.
THE EXPERT at being ‘High-Class’ & Having High Self-Worth
The ‘High-Class’ Muslimah Expert
As a Muslimah, it is important to know your own boundaries, respect yourself, and know your own worth. It is also important to have some non-negotiables in place. Not just when it comes to marriage, but also in any other setting, such as your friend group. People treat us the way we let them treat us. Women tend to score higher on something called agreeableness. Being agreeable is a good thing in a sense. Agreeable people are seen as more trustworthy, straightforward, altruistic, compliant, modest, and tender-minded. Having said that, it also makes us easier to walk over. You are allowed to take up space and sister, if you don’t like the food that is being served, you can always send it back and get something else. Be high-class. Do not just accept everything from others. Stand your ground because you’re not being difficult, you’re being smart.
The Muslim sister Expert @ knowing my own worth
Muslim Sisters are the prize! Know your worth and know what you deserve. And most importantly, be okay with being alone. I truly believe that it is better to be unmarried and to be doing your thing than to be married to someone who’s no good for you. You are fun. Kind. Smart. Beautiful in your own way. Most importantly, you are loved. You might not always feel loved If you are Muslimah, and you truly believe, you are loved. Allah loves you. Your brothers and sisters in Islam love you. You are worth everything. Now it is time to believe and trust in your own worth.
Feminine Rediscovery for Muslim Sisters
I was taught to cook, clean, take care of children, and be a woman who serves. The duties of a wife were known to me when I was a little girl. Personally, I’d like to have known more about the Islamic rights of women. My mother tried, but she didn’t know all her rights either. We need Islamic Feminine Education.
Allah made us women first. We often forget that we are wives and mothers second. That is why I created Your Classy Muslim Sister, and why I want to be yours. I want us to enjoy the nicer things in life, I want us to love ourselves and reach our potential while still being modest Muslimah’s. I want us to be high-class. To live abundantly. For the sisters who wish to marry, I want you to marry a Muslim man you can be proud of. A man you can love, respect, and have a family with (if that is one of your goals in life). I want us to have all those things, and that is why:
Before we start, I want you to know that I and the other women who write for this blog, are not imams, nor Muslim scholars. We share our opinions about many topics. On Islamic topics, we do our research. We cite sources and make sure we are not spreading nonsense. Did you, however, find something that was not factual? Please share, we genuinely wish to spread knowledge as part of our personal journeys to becoming better Muslim women.
