“Muslim Girl- The Plight of Sisters” by Awil Jama


Here is another poem by my friend Awil Jama. Many people liked his previous poem that I shared at my blog as a part of the Reviving the Muslim Youth series, which is here “Somali Boy.”

Much of what Awil Jama says here can be equally said about the plight of the Muslim Brother. However, I do hope that he would write another poem only on the Plight of the brothers, inshallah.

Enjoy reading it, Jazallah Khair –Awil Jama.

  1. Muslim girl engulfed with materialistic possessions
  2. latest trends: Iphone, Ipod, Ipad, Imac.
  3. Running for attention and acceptance.
  4. Leaving traditions and modesty- like recyclable ideologies.
  5. Trapped in a society that favors immodesty, fornication, and seductive music lyrics.
  6. Subservient females whose lust are money and men.
  7. Losing Muslim identity like quick sand,
  8. replaced by westernized definition of happiness and success.
  9. Befriends wicked and fake Muslimah missionaries
  10. to the calling of trouble and destruction.
  11. Late night texting, partying and alcoholic drinking.
  12. Ciroc & Grey goose chasing, cigarette & kush blowing,
  13. club hopping, hookah bar chilling, one nighters and morning hangovers
  14. Acceptable virtues and routines,
  15. unislamic but grand delusion of fun and happiness.
  16. Lacking strong parental guidance, easily peer pressured
  17. into streams of dating and loving insecure boys who
  18. secretly sin and publicly lie.
  19. Victims of bad childhoods, abuse, neglect, loneliness and confusion.
  20. So they prey upon women’s kindness and love,
  21. good Muslim men hard to find and often
  22. left to settle for less and less
  23. than her potential and self worth.
  24. Muslim girl obsessed with fashion and appearance,
  25. torn between the hijab and stylish hairdos,
  26. on and off with the hijab as she pleases.
  27. Muslim weddings, business meetings, job interviews, and shoppingmalls.
  28. Blind to religious modesty and self preservation.
  29. Dresses to please herself and potential bystanders.
  30. Skinny jeans, booty shorts, miniskirts, tight jilbabs, high heels, and convertible hijabies
  31. fit for all occasions just not Muslim occasions and Eid celebrations.
  32. Foreign to the Qur’an and Hadith,
  33. but glorifies and obsesses over
  34. gossip magazines, movie stars, tv shows, and rap artists.
  35. Muslim girl- master of disguises fools even the wise.
  36. Lying about whereabouts, always citing the Masjid, MSA meeting, & Muslim conferences
  37. but always with the in crowd partying and hanging out.
  38. Living the good life, not minding the consequences just partying and chilling,
  39. bumping to Drake and Lil Wayne, full time groupies loving from a distance.
  40. Wishing deeply to be loved and appreciated, searching day and night for her
  41. true one; sadly looking for him in all the wrong locations.
  42. Muslim girl lost in a digitalized world, her means of socializing
  43. Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Myspace, Skype, and Text Messaging
  44. Living in a World Wide Web phenomenon.
  45. She finds comfort in intangible relationships,
  46. 2,000 friends and followers, popularity sooths
  47. the sleepless night, tearful cries, broken heart,
  48. regretful lies, actions and desires.
  49. Muslim Girl praying for better nights and days,
  50. to be herself and not others
  51. to be like Aisha, Khadija, and Fatima
  52. not Beyonce, Nicki and Taylor.
