Right before taking this photo a German family bought me a meal from Hardee’s, just to be nice, and a sweet boy gave me a cold bottle of water to go with it. It was great. After I finished, the call to prayer echoed in the streets and we rushed to get to the Prophet’s Mosque. On my way, this man was cleaning the streets and kindly took the trash from my lunch and smiled. He was confidently cleaning the streets and picking up trash, like a boss. It was very honorable. So I told him I wanted to snap a picture, this one was the candid one. #PeopleOfMedina

I’ll be sharing stories and all tonight at 8:15 PM EST on ustream.tv/channel/justsayhello-with-noor

Anonymous asked: Um no. Islam does talk about the niqab. Islam says hijab is mandatory (stop trying to change what Islam says - even if you're not a hijabi yet. Work your way up to wearing it but stop saying it's not mandatory) and niqab is an extra length of covering and being modest but it is NOT mandatory.

Did you seriously just say I’m not a hijabi? Cool.

Anonymous asked: Salam, did you know that the hijab style looking like the camel hump is haram? I know it's not your fault if you have really long hair but you should just avoid the high ponytail to avoid any haram
