The Difference between Girls and Boys

This morning, while picking my niece up from school, My sister and I were discussing the differences between boys and girls.

One of my niece's girlfriends was crying because some girls didn't want to be her friend. It was while giving her some tips and lessons on dealing with friends, that i remarked about how soft the heart of a girl is.
Think about it, how easy is it for us to cry when we are hurting or even worried? How quickly can we feel sympathy for others? How soon do we feel guilty when we hurt others? Allah (SWT) in His infinite mercy has created us this way. And women truly are a different species from men.

Now I know some men are more in touch with their feelings than others. And I know that other men are unnecessarily harsh, but I also know that the heart of a woman is unlike anything imaginable.
I cannot fully comprehend why it is that we live in a society in which being soft and emotional is a bad thing! Why is it that the fact that we can cry so willingly is seen as a form of weakness? I don't think it's a weakness, I think that its a strength really. I mean, imagine a woman who couldn't cry. Imagine a woman that wasnt soft and emotional. Imagine a home devoid of  the loving touch of a woman. Imagine a world filled with only men.

Men and women were created differently. They compliment each other in the most wonderful ways. What the woman can pride herself on, the man may be lacking. And man's natural Allah- given abilities are not found in women. This is the true beauty of all our differences... that together, two separates, two counterparts, make a unified whole.

Truly, Allah Most High is certainly the Most Wise and All Knowing! Alhamdulillah.


  1. Salaam alaikum dear one, Just dropping by to say رمضان كريم, May Allah make your fasts the fasts of those who fast sincerely, Inshallah. Barakallah feek.

    I hope to see you inshallah when I am down in JHB over Eid.

  2. Dear reader from Sweden. Next time you feel the urge to go about making rude comments about honourable people, please do so in your own space.

    I deeply urge you to find some reading material on Islam and the beloved Messenger of God (Peace be upon him) in order to expand your knowledge and unshackle your mind. By reading material I dont mean a newspaper (aka propaganda tool) but rather something unbiased. Free your mind from the illusion that people have fed you... it will do you some good.

    Furthermore let me state that the Blessed Prophet (Peace be upon him) was sent as a mercy for all mankind- not just muslims! You will have to stand, on an overwhelming day, in front of your Creator and account for the things you said about His beloved Prophet (Peace be upon him). Don't say you weren't warned. Because I, along with all the readers, are witnesses.

    If you want to hear the truth, email me at silver6has@gmail.com. I'll be more than willing to let you in on the reality of this world and the reality of our beloved Messenger (Peace be upon him).

  3. P.S. the original comment from the reader from sweden had to be deleted since it was far too rude and profane, and most certainly unworthy, of being displayed on the blog of a proud muslimah, (or anywhere for that matter).
