Beauty of a Queen

With my Niqab

Some are mesmerized by the beauty of a diamond

While others are tantalized by the appearance of a shiny star

Muslimahs

Queens

Elevated to a status unlike any other woman

Unforeseen for most women in the 6th century

Treated like property to be traded and exchanged

Held at a worth less than a penny

Held at a status of nothiness

Muslimahs

Queens

Truly an example for others to emulate

Women of opinions

Women of choice

Women of power

Women of status

A time in which women were told they were less than queens, treated like slaves to men, not given the right to financial independence, not given the choice to choose her husband, choice to divorce, choice to be alive because she was female….

Muslimahs

Women of status

Women of  Status
