White lies

Is there a time when lies are okay? 

Hijab, as I've written before is a lot more than covering your hair. Everyday is a new chance to increase the quality of ones hijab. Most of us wearing it, whole hearted chose it, for the same purpose. Yet we wear it differently, growing and developing in our own pace. One thing I'm struggling with nowadays is "white lies", I find myself in some situations where I patch things up with lies. I just realised yesterday how it all started. It's not that I lied everday about everything but sometimes to make things easier, I chose to lie. 

"It happens sometimes, but she makes other good sallads". This sentence made me realise why I started using "white lies" even though I don't believe in them. I've been nagging about being a lier since last night and most of those suffering from my naggings says the same thing, "Everybody lies sometime". I have to say, it was comforting knowing that I wasn't alone, atleast for a second. But it also made me once again remember that a lie is a lie, weather black or white. Lying kills honesty and honesty being dead you will never get to really know.

I got a turba from Irak, Karbala today. It feels as if I'm celebrating the challenge of staying away from lies. There's truly no gift greater than the ones that holds a meaning. My treasure is almost complete, only the book of knowledge, the Holy Qura'n left, for me to become rich.

I've gotten these objects from 3 people filled with the love of God(swt) and Ahlulbayt (A.S) It makes them extra valuable. Hopefully a Holy Qura'n soon will follow to complete the picture.


  1. Beautiful!
    I guess a lie is a lie but the truth is sometimes giving a white lie saves alot of heartache and doing it doesnt mean ur a bad person. I guess what Im trying to say is that you shouldnt beat yourself up to hard about it and instead just try to do better in the future!
    Great post btw!
