Eid Mubarak from the Dahir Sisters ❤ Ig// Thedahirsisters :))
A completely un-Sana-ish squeal of joy escapes your mouth and you punch the air with your fist. But then you remember who you are and clear your throat and take a few deep breaths. Play it cool, Sana!
His voice is cheerful and broken at the same time, but the smile spreading on his face is so warm and gentle you can’t help smiling back.
I was 18 when I met her in a college library five years ago.

I began performing my daily prayers, I stopped smoking and I quit some other nasty habits.
I left my notebook at home that day and needed paper to write on for a homework assignment. In search of scrap paper, I looked to my left and there she was…

We knew we wanted to be together but our family’s approval would be challenging to attain.
“When is he coming?”, Elias asks, making you shove him slightly, biting your lower lip.
White girl wearing booty shorts and a crop top: I feel SO hot. I could start melting any moment now. Me, wearing a top with an extra full sleeved one underneath, a headscarf, and jeans: hahahaha ya u could
“So what?”, you snap at him, unable to stop yourself from smiling at the thought of seeing Yousef later.
He tries to come across as indifferent, but the warm look in his eyes betrays him. “You’re the one who told me Yousef is the best guy you know.”
You just finished your Salah when your heart jumps a little for no apparent reason. Rushing over to your desk to grab your phone, you almost laugh at yourself. It’s exactly 17:25, and you can feel your cheeks blush and your heartbeat accelerate. Trying to breathe steadily, you just stand there, staring at your phone, feeling more like an idiot with every passing second.
Yousef presses a hesitant kiss to your hijab, and you can’t help but smile to yourself. Gosh, how can you be so cute? But then you remember you’re still at home, with Elias next door, and that’s what makes you gently disengage yourself from Yousef.
Having checked the flight schedules way too many times that day, you know Yousef must have literally texted you right after his plane touched down, and that thought makes you smile so hard your cheeks almost hurt. You take a deep breath and then type a text back.
“Welcome back”, you murmur quietly, and Yousef’s quiet laugh reverberates in your chest, making your knees go weak.

Three and a half years ago, she became a Muslim and did so because she felt it was the truth.
We did this for the sake of Allah and held on tight until now because of the belief that we would shatter stereotypes, pave the road for others in our community with the same challenges and of course, fulfill half of our deen.

She began researching Islam in depth, attended prayers in mosques and befriended many Muslims.
For a few seconds, both of you just stand there, smiling at each other like idiots, not knowing what to do. But then, Yousef sighs and walks up to you, hesitantly wrapping both arms around your shoulders. You bury your face at his neck and put your arms around him, too, breathing him in.
Elias just shrugs and grins broadly. “Hey, I could give you shit for dating one of my friends, just remember.”
After the video is over, you discuss it with your brother for a while, almost forgetting why you sat down with him. But then, the doorbell rings and your insides turn to ice.
Elias turns on his heel and checks his phone. “40 minutes”, he remarks, and you almost groan again. “You could join me to watch our latest video, that will make time pass a little faster?”

Yousef stares at him and then nods wordlessly, looking back at you.

You nod at him and then gently push him out of the door, closing it behind you. “Definitely . Let’s go!”
“Hi”, you breathe and throw a sideway glare at your brother. Get lost, damn it.
You study his face, trying to find evidence that he’s pulling your leg. When you don’t find any, you cross your arms in front of your chest and give your brother the tiniest of smiles.
Elias rolls his eyes and groans dramatically. “Sometimes, I just want to know how my sister is doing, Sana!”

This is not a very flattering angle for me, nor is it a flattering photo. I also look fat. But it’s kinda cool I guess, idk.

The door opens and Elias peeks into your room, an unusually shy grin on his face.
But then, just as the time code on your phone changes to 17:26, a message bubble pops up, making you gasp involuntarily.
“I’m free tonight. Gotta drop off my bags at home but I can pick you up at seven?”

The heart of a mother is a deep abyss at the bottom of which you will always find love and forgiveness.

Looking down at your feet, you let out a soundless “faen”, but a high-pitched giggle makes you look up in shock. Elias is leaning in the doorframe, still giggling and pointing at you.
It took many years for her family to accept that she wasn’t being brainwashed into accepting Islam and that she wasn’t falling into a trap.

But when you hear the front door open and Elias’ and Yousef’s voices as they greet each other enthusiastically, you decide to give up. With a groan, you open the door to your room and run across the apartment to the hallway.

She was a Christian and I, a Muslim. She didn’t understand how anyone could follow Islam, a cult of falsehood, oppression, sexism, violence and terrorism.
We knew we’d be married one day, we could see it in our minds and that we’d do it with the approval of our families.

Your brother grins again and inclines his head. “I guess I did.”
Soooo. Whenever i wear an abaya, I dont wear anything except for a bra and undie underneath

Just when your heart is back to beating at a normal pace, there’s a knock on your door, making you frown. The only person who usually knocks before barging into your room is your dad, and he’s definitely still at work. So you hesitate for a second before calling: “Yes?”
The video is pretty good. The boys discuss Isak’s and Even’s relationship and what it was like for them to come out. Elias does a pretty decent job of explaining how he never understood why anyone’s love for someone else could be wrong and the proud smile on Even’s face while he listens to him makes your heart soar.
“Are you alright, little sister?”, he asks, and now you’re worried. Your brother is never this nice without a reason, and usually, the reason for him being shy means either trouble or big trouble.
Right after you send the last text, time slows down until you feel it’s not passing at all. You try to take your time changing into your favourite white linen pants and black T-shirt, scrutinising your dark green abaya for any spots and then hanging it at the back of the door. Then, you consider putting on a white hijab for the occasion, but in the end, you settle for a simple black one, deciding you don’t need to make it too obvious you care about what you’re wearing. After fixing your make-up – only nude lipstick and a little mascara – you sit in front of your mirror, trying to calm yourself down.
“Historically headwear has always been used to oppress women” this couldn’t be further from the truth and I say this from my experience as an African. Whenever we buy fabric to Taylor our clothes, a piece is always cut out to be used as a headwear. Our outfit ain’t complete if we don’t have a beautiful scarf wrapped around our head in all sorts of fancy styles, if you want to look bomb you simply gotta put on your crown, it’s not something women/girls are required to do for the sake of covering up it’s just fashion for us. Please realize that different cultures have different things they view as oppressive, tying a turban or wearing caps is equally common to african men, their outfit also ain’t complete without a headwear if you watched bp you would have seen it but let’s move on. I once showed my friend a picture of the royal dressing from my culture and she looked at the “emir” ( sort of like a name for the king of the old empire) and she said is he a virgin lmao. Yes I am Muslim and I choose to wear the hijab but covering the hair isn’t something that is always a religious act, it’s as natural and normal as wearing pants for some of us.
You throw a thankful glance at him on your way back to your room, where you lean against the door and take a few deep breaths. For Pete’s get a hold of yourself.

“Are you hungry?” you ask him, and Yousef’s already broad smile gets even broader.

“Fuuuuck” you mumble, and adjust your hijab hastily, feeling your cheeks heat up. Elias laughs and puts a hand on your shoulder.
At the exact same time, I was a medium for her to see an Islam that was different to what the media promoted.
“It’s good to be back”, he whispers and puts a hand to the back of your head. “I missed you.”

I asked her for a single sheet of paper to use and she gave me three. I was in love.

Your brother suppresses a chuckle and bumps your shoulder with his on his way past you, and then you’re alone with Yousef.
But Elias puts up his hands in a defensive gesture, shushing you. “No, Sana, everything’s alright. Mum’s with her friends and dad’s at work, as usual, stop freaking out.”
Seeing Yousef for the first time in two months makes you stop dead in your tracks. He looks so good. Your crush is wearing white jeans and a black t-shirt, and for once he left his snapback at home. Which isn’t good because it makes you want to run your fingers through his hair and you can’t think about that, not with your brother standing between you and Yousef, grinning like a fucking idiot.
So when Elias is about to walk off to the living room, you call after him. “At seven.”

You narrow your eyes and cross your arms again. “Elias, I don’t need you to play matchmaker, seriously!”
He wrote it in his text before, but hearing him say it is so much better. You pull him a little closer and lean your head on his shoulder.

It took many years for my family to get over their fear that a white girl was manipulating me and simply acting like she was a Muslim so I could fall into her trap.

You get to your feet and walk over to him, feeling panic rise in your throat.
“My sister is in love”, he states, and you throw your hands in the air and open your mouth to contradict him, but since he didn’t’ even ask you decide it’s no use.

That’s exactly what happened last weekend. Both of our family’s were at our wedding and couldn’t be happier that we found each other. Alhamdulillah.
However, my competitive nature kicked in and to prove this white chick wrong, I began reading the Quran…

Alot of guys freak out when they find this out, and i just wanted to know if other ladies do this too. I know alot of women who do this, but who doesn’t do this is my question!
We recognized this and grounded ourselves in good old patience.
The laugh that escapes you is not as mocking as you wish it was. “Yeah, I don’t think so.”
Truth is, I never knew how to respond to her criticisms about Islam because I wasn’t practicing my parents’ faith at the time.
Allah made her (not a Muslim) a medium through which he would call me towards Islam.

You scrunch up your nose after hitting send. Too desperate? But you barely have a minute to panic before you get another text.

Over the next year of being in school together, we had many conversations and found we had a lot in common. We both valued family, altruism, happiness, spontaneity, and living with purpose.
You think about it for a moment and then decide that you may as well kill ten of forty minutes this way. Throwing up your hands in a surrendering gesture, you follow Elias down the hall. “Fine.”
Elias smiles back at you, looking pleased with himself. “I told him you can’t wait to see him again, you know, so you should thank me.”

And just when you think your heart can’t possibly beat any faster, another message comes in.
The two of you smile at each other for a moment, until you remember to check the time. It’s only 18:13 and you let out an involuntary groan.

“We got Isak AND Even to join us this time, it’s really awesome!”, Elias adds, and that actually piques your interest.

Elias’ grin grows wider, and that’s when you realise why he’s here. He knows Yousef is coming home today.
Elias clears his throat and pats Yousef’s shoulder. “Be good to my sister, eh bro?”
I know I know, it’s at least one month too early, but I couldn’t resist … I just had to write about Yousef coming back from Turkey and Sana not being nervous about it … like, not at all .. @isakthesnake this is for you, cause I haven’t updated my AU in ages and I want to make you smile today
“None of your business”, you retort, but your brother just shakes his head with a slow laugh. You hate him and love him at the same time. It doesn’t matter that he annoys you to no end and makes you want to kick him on a daily basis. At the end of the day, you know you can rely on your brother and his love for you is real. You trust each other and have each other’s backs, and that’s pretty damn amazing.
