Its funny and true......... read it and find out inshalah!

Saying salams to the opposite gender on campus is actually quite the
trivial issue. Some scholars say that men should be required to initiate
the salams to the sister while other scholars say it should be sister that
should start off with the salams.

The following scenario looks at a common incident through different points
of view and what exactly is going on inside the minds of a sister and a
brother (in Islam).

Sister's Point of View:

**sister walks out of exam hall**

Oh my gyad, that chemistry test was so easy! I'm sooooo happy for finishing
my last exam. This is the happiest day of my life! LOL!

**a brother exits from opposite exam hall**

Oh, WHO is that? Is he Muslim? He has an ugly beard ewww. He looks scary.
And WHY is he walking this way? Oh my God he's headed straight towards me!
Okay, be calm… it's all normal. Just be polite and make eye contact and…

BROTHER: Assalamu Alaikum

SISTER: Walaikum Musalam

OH MY GOD. He just said salams to me! No way it must have been to someone
else. Wait, but there is no one else around. OH MY GOD IT WAS FOR ME. But
why? Why would a random brother just say salams to me? It just doesn't make
sense. I've been wearing this hijab for ages… so why the salams NOW?

Hmmm, this brother looks like he's almost done in under grad. Isn't that
the brother who got into med school? Wow he's so smart mashAllah. Why would
someone like that say SALAM to me? Was he just trying to be nice? Hmmm.

OR maybe he was being MORE than nice. Yeah I think that has to be it. OMG
no way. Does he like me??? I've never seen him before but I sometimes study
in the science library so he probably saw me. Why wouldn't he say salams to
me then? Maybe he was waiting to become more secure in his field before
saying salams to me? I think that must be it. He is no doubt scouting
people… of course.

This is soooo weird lol. But mashAllah he's a good looking brother. I'm
sure he's pious. That beard looks good on him mashAllah. I wonder if he's
talked to his parents about me yet? I hope his parents will like me. I'm a
nice girl though. All the aunties love my personality lol.

But if he lives far away then I might have to move close to his parents'
house because his job will probably be around there. Oh man the change in
life will be sooooo hard to get used to. I wonder if he's going to live in
his own place or if we're going to move in with his parents? I wouldn't
mind living with his parents ONLY if they're open-minded. Uffff I hate
close-minded people. I want to have nice in-laws.

I hope he wants a simple Nikkah. I can't stand all that extravagant crap
that goes on nowadays. He seems very simple and down-to-earth though
mashAllah. Definitely my kind of man. I wonder how he is with kids. I don't
mind having kids but he better not be the type that wants like 50 kids. OMG
that would so suck. 3 is a good number. I like the names Bilal , Mariam and
Ayesha. InshAllah it'll be in that order.

I wonder if he's very science-y. I don't like when people are too
science-y. I think our kids should do anything they want as long as they
are successful. Bilal would make a good social worker I think.

He seems like the type that would always compliment my cooking, no matter
how bad it is lol J I hate guys who think women belong in the kitchen. I
think he'll help out once in awhile too. He seems so gentle and delicate
hahah.

Wow I hope when Bilal grows up he'll let me and that brother live with him.
I don't want to go to any retirement home! No inshAllah that brother will
instil good values into Bilal. But OMG should I wait until he says salams
again? I'm sure he'll make the first move.

Brother's Point of View.

**brother walks out of exam hall**

Wow. I think I failed that exam. I haven't shaven for days because of these
stupid exams. I look like a werewolf. Stupid science. I think I'll switch
into political science next year… I can't take this. Hey is that a hijabi
over there? Hmmm I think I should be polite and say salams.

BROTHER: Assalamu Alaikum

SISTER: Walaikum Musalam

Man, I'm hungry. I wonder what's for dinner tonight? Hopefully spaghetti.


so wot u think???:okay:

As-salamu Alaykum,

LOL, that was funny. I think that is the way we are about everything. Women tend to over think simple matters... no offense to anyone. I'm a woman and I think we should be real about our differences (between the sexes). It's not a bad thing to think things through. It's just a waste of time in certain situations.
