Salam!!
I’m so excited for this post. I loved the previous one about the Hercules Caves but this one is also a favourit since I love the cozy place… CHEF CHAOUEN! The blue and white city. It’s so pretty! The majority of the houses are either white or blue, or blue AND white. The small city is placed on the mountains with a nice view of the nature close by. Enjoy the pics and the mixed vlog (above)! 🙂

Beachday is the best day!

Moroccan blogpost!
Ahh my sweet, oh so sweet homeland. Just thinking about that place brings me instant happiness. A lot of people wonder how I can be there for so long, like this summer (2 months), and I’m like .. You have to be there to understand but at least I’m going to try to post different blogposts showing you how relaxing and nice it is there mA.

One of the best parts of the trip is definitely the beach, that’s what this post is about. Morocco’s beaches, at least around Tetouan where I live, are so nice. Especially Kabila. The feeling of pure relaxation happens there. I wake up, eat breakfast and go to the beach. The music in the background while chillin, the cold water underneath the burning sun and a cold drink in the heat. Omg I miss it so much! Nothing tops a day at the beach.

To finish a beachday of in a proper way is definitely to go eat an awesomesauce meal afterwards lol. I always end up eating shawarma or a hamburger! Not only do I have travelfever now but I’m also hungry…

BURKINI BEING A THREAT…

So this is a post I definitely did NOT see coming, I never thought I would write about this subject, neither now nor in the near future (or ever)! As some of you have read through the course of the last three-five days, France has banned a full body swimsuit for muslim women called Burkini. Just writing that sentence makes me cringe. And the even weirder and crazier part is the reason behind the ban. According to the mayor it is because of the tension caused by the latest violence and terrorist threats. According to them it has nothing to do with racism, they banned it for safety reasons and for people’s security… How dumb is this?

So much of what I wrote above is wrong on so many levels. How can they link the burkini to terrorism? How can a piece of clothing be a threat? How can Burkini decrease the level of security? How can they decide what women should wear to the BEACH? How is this even a topic of discussion?!

– One of the problems is ofc that they can link islamic clothing (in other words Islam) to terrorism openly without it being an absurd and non tolerant thing. It has become normal to talk ill about muslims and ban muslims from things they have the right to act on/do (I know creapy). They can say “Their clothes should not be allowed, it is dangerous/not safe” without it being a problem when it infact means: muslims are dangerous. The signal this sends out is that muslims aren’t welcome to the beach (and other places) and that if you are covered you can be a threat. How is this signal OK to send out?

– Another problem is that people yet again try to decide what we should do or what we should wear. They try to tell us who to be, how to act and how our identities don’t matter unless we follow their rules. This for me is super confusing. All muslims in the west must have read or heard that none muslims (who think they know it all) don’t comprehend how (some) muslim  men can decide what muslim women should do or how they should dress and yet again we have the same people (not all of them ofc) telling muslim women what to wear. How twisted is that? Apparently me and my fellow sisters are oppressed because we are forced to wear the hijab by others (which is not true ofc), and they think by forcing us to dress a certain way they are helping us… They are the ones oppressing muslim women by taking away their rights do be who they want to be and dress how they want to dress.

I’m so tired of the “what should muslim women wear” discussion. If my sisters don’t want to be half naked while swiming, they shouldn’t be forced. If my sisters want to cover up, they should be able to. And if my sisters want to be free, let them be free. Stop trying to set us free from a decision we freely made!! Stop trying to label us. You do you, and we are going to do us and just keep being awesome. 🙂

If you made it this far, kudos to you.
Until next time in shaa Allah! ❤

Sooo… I’m free as a bird! Summerbreak has officially started for me alhamdulillah and it feels amazing already! 🙂 Summerbreak for me means getting out of the country lol so I can’t wait to leave after Ramadan with my bestie and experience another amazing trip with her inshaAllah. Right now I’m looking through my Dubai pictures, aaahh how I miss it!

– Best beach outfit ever!! The clothes never soaked up the heat too much and the clothes dried up pretty fast. Printed outfit from H&M.
