I'm Fatima and I'm trying this new thing called "Being a better Muslimah" or whatever.
Just going to take it slow and use this blog to remind me of who I am...I mean besides a cynical lesbian Harry Potter addict.
To be gay and Muslim, at times, people will say that it is an oxymoron. But in actuality, it’s a formulation that shows the diversity within Islam; that people can be a variety of backgrounds. The Quran says to look to the nature of the world. And from that, you can see the diversity and understand that Allah’s understanding of the world and the universe in which he created is full of diversity; but you find the oneness, the tauheed unification of all, through those various diverse aspects.
