I am Muslim survivor of domestic violence. I’ve been told that I’ve made myself look like a victim or that I seem like I “can’t let go”🙄 (I assure you, I’m happily moving on). Let me just respond thank you for your concern.
I don’t post or share my journey for attention, sympathy, favoritism or drama. Domestic violence is a problem that won’t go away if we continue to sweep it under the carpet. We need to change our response to survivor’s inshallah. We need to remove the stigma and shame from the victim and place it where it belongs with the perpetrator. We need to break the cycle of domestic violence.
I post and share memes, lovely sayings, Qur’an quotes and hadith, strength , self care and self love, surviving narsissistic abuse posts, and raw personal story so that not only I may heal through them, but also others beautiful sister’s who choose not to be so open with their personal war may find healing in them as well.
Therefore when you think in your head, “I wish she wouldn’t post her story so publicly”…. five more sister’s are sending me private messages thanking me, supporting me, encouraging me, loving me, and sharing how much my posts are inspiring them to just keep going inshallah.
Domestic violence will not go away if we refuse to deal with it. Silence hides violence. I am raising awareness to help break the cycle of domestic violence inshallah.
Everyone who has lived in domestic violence has scars. We were all cut in different ways as every perpetrator is different. Some scars are big, some are small. Some are old, some are new just as they all came about in different ways.
Your method of dealing with your wound isn’t going to be the same as mine. You might heal silently, alone or with just a few in your circle that is your choice inshallah .
I’m a very open book who hopes to bring awareness of domestic violence and childhood abuse through a public journey and honest testimony inshallah.
One of my favorite lessons through this process has been “Those who mind don’t matter. And those who matter, don’t mind.” Alhamdulillah those who know my intention love and support what I’m doing.
I am proud of my scars as I survived Alhamdulillah. They’re just badges I’ve earned from the wars I have won Alhamdulillah. I will show them off with intention of helping others heal and breaking the cycle of domestic violence inshallah.
The sisters group is growing providing support to help sister’s achieve their goals inshallah. We have a wonderful team of moderators and are now global Alhamdulillah.
We have a sister’s sales group for sisters to advertise their services. The aim of this page and the group’s is to remove the silence around Domestic violence. For sisters to form a sisterhood with love and compassion towards each other inshallah.
I’ve come a long way. I’m healing and I’m happy mashallah. I’m excited for my future and what Allah (SWT) has in store for me. That doesn’t make my scars any less visible or sharable… it just proves to others that theirs can heal too inshallah!
May Allah protect all individuals who are suffering from Domestic violence.
