  • A Dialogue Between a Flower and a Pearl

    i would like to share an email recieved today: :)

    One day, a brilliantly beautiful and fragrant flower with attractive colors met a pearl that lives far in the bottom of the sea and has none of these characteristics.

    Both got acquainted with each other.

    The flower said: "Our family is large; roses and daisies are members of the family. And there are many other species that are various and countless, each has a distinctive scent, appearance.etc."

    Suddenly, a tinge of distress appeared on the flower.

    "Nothing accounts for sorrow in your talk; so why are depressed?" The pearl asked.

    "Human beings deal with us carelessly; they slight us. They don't grow us for our sake but to get pleasure from our fragrance and beautiful appearance. They throw us on the street or in the garbage can after we are dispossessed of the most valuable properties; brilliance and fragrance" The flower sighed.

    And then the flower said to the pearl: "Speak to me about your life! How do you live? How do you feel it? You are buried in the bottom of the sea."

    The pearl answered: "Although I have none of your distinctive colors and sweet scents, humans think I am precious. They do the impossible to procure me. They go on long journeys, dive deep in the seas searching for me. You might be astounded to know that the further I lay, the more beautiful and brilliant I become. That's what upraises my value in their thought. I live in a thick shell isolated in the dark seas. However, I'm happy and proud to be in a safe zone far from wanton and mischievous hands and still the humans consider me highly valuable"

    Do you know what the flower and the pearl symbolize?

    The Flower is the UnHijabed Woman and the Pearl is the Hijabed Woman.

      sweet, I shall refrain from stating the (obvious), if unintended, little flaw in the story
      ...sermons from this minbar come with tongue planted quite firmly in cheek.


      "Let your boat of life be light, packed with only what you need -
      a homely home and simple pleasures, one or two friends,
      worth the name, someone to love and someone to love you,
      a cat, a dog, and a pipe or two, enough to eat and enough to wear,
      and a little more than enough to drink; for thirst is a dangerous thing."

      -- Jerome K. Jerome
      (Three Men in a Boat)

                As cute as this little story is I find it uncomfortable that people talk about muslim sisters in that way, yes they don't wear hijab but they are still muslims.

                  i dont think the story implies that those who dont wear hijab are not muslims.

                    I didn't say it did.

                    Muslims are not garbage, even if it was a metaphor no one should be reffering to anyone in that way
