Raising Muslim Children in America Especially During the Holiday season.

Having my son in a public school and teaching him religion Islam is sometimes a difficult one. He is only seven and very intelligent. I explain to him that we don’t celebrate Christmas. He is ok with that because we have our holidays that falls in its own time. I am happy that he doesn’t ask me for a gift and things of that nature. Even though I tend to get him a lot of gifts during this season because a girl loves a sale.

Him being in public school, they are doing Christmas like things. So a few weeks ago, his school had story time; they had sent the permission slip so the kids can get tickets to attend. Me and my silly self didn’t really thoroughly look at it. The day of I went to look at the paper just to be reminded of the time it begins. So as I looked on the paper, I read there will be a surprise guest. Soon as I saw that, I was like this special guest has to be Santa.

When Adam came home, and of course, he is so giddy and excited about this story night because he will be going to school at night in his pajamas. I let him know if it’s about Christmas, we will be leaving. He understood that I could tell there was a hint of annoyance.

When we got there the story was ” Frosty The Snow Man ” I was ok with that. I am not so strict like how I brought up. When my parents were young parents, I’m pretty sure we would have been out of there. But as they are getting old, they focus on other things in Islam. I also think when parents become grandparents, they are different. Those people you knew growing up that you called parents flip the script on you.

They had an art craft, which was to make a snow globe. It was more of a paper snow globe. I let Adam participate in the activity. I just took off the part that said ” Christmas of 2019″. Adam, of course, was like, “huh,” but I explained to him there is nothing wrong with making a snow globe, let’s just take off the Christmas part. So when the kids were done with the crafts, the teacher said there is a surprise in the gymnasium. I told Adam, ok, it’s time to go. We aren’t staying to go to the gymnasium. He pouted and asked, can we just check. I took it into consideration, but I would have put MONEY up that the surprise was old Saint Nick himself in that gym. Guess who was right? I was, so the ladies who I guess was helping with the day seen we were dressed and walking past the gym. One lady said, “oh, why are you leaving ?” The other lady said, “oh, you’re leaving to beat the traffic ?” I said no. This is where I should have said yes, smiled, and walked away. No, I always have something to say. I told her the reason, and I said, oh, we don’t celebrate Christmas, so there won’t be a reason to see Santa if we don’t believe him. Why did the ladies say, ” Aww!” Like poor child. I just rolled my eyes said goodnight get home safe and walked away.

That was so annoying to me. Why would these women do that, more so say that in front of my child. Don’t try to make him feel bad or don’t feel sorry for my child due to our religious beliefs. There are SO MANY people who don’t celebrate Christmas. There are Afro – American who do Kwanzaa. There are Jews who do Hanukkah. Damn, there are even Christian like Jehovah witnesses who don’t celebrate Christmas. So why don’t school Pta’s/ Staff keep that in mind. It’s not just little Muslim boys and girls in schools that don’t celebrate Christmas. There are so many other religions as well. Some kids can really be affected by that and go home crying to their parents. Who has to deal with that ? The parents, not the ignorant staff members who are just one note.

Etiquette

So I was invited to attend a wedding between two coworkers. I knew about their wedding ever since I had started the job. I did not expect to actually be invited. Side note my husband started working for the company about four months ago and is pretty cool with the groom. Anyways back to the story. We get invited to the wedding via the wedding planner. She told the bride it was not the proper etiquette to invite someone this late. This late meaning about a week before the wedding. I know there had been some cancellation and since things were paid for might as well try to still fill those spots.

Now as I had stated before, this wedding was between two coworkers. So it’s not uncommon you would probably have a good amount of coworkers there because of work being the second home as much as we work.

It actually saddened me to see how many people who RSVP to the wedding who didn’t show up. Is that a reflection of the support these so-called friends show? Or is it just selfishness that you RSVP yes but don’t show up knowing that you were paid for. Should the bride and groom expect an outstanding wedding gift from those who didn’t attend and there were many who didn’t actually show.

This is just heavy on my heart because I was able to be blessed to witness their union. I find that to be very important. Being married isn’t easy it’s a test every day, but it’s totally worth it if you are married to someone who is willing to work with you. It also makes me reflect on who is an actual friend. In my opinion, my actual friends would be supporting me getting married. But her that’s just me and my little thoughts. I wish them the best in their marriage. 💕💕💕

A little Something about Me

My name is Asiyah. I am currently 28 years old living in the Savannah Ga area. I am a mother of two children. As I write this I laugh out loud because this sounds so formal or dating app-ish. I decided to start this blog just so that I kind of have an outlet to express myself. I don’t feel like I am a strong writer but maybe this blog can help me tune up my skills in writing. So as I stated before I have two children one wonderful boy who is in the first grade and a baby girl who is currently 10 months.

So in my little blog I guess I will be telling those who read it how a day in a life of a mom is. I joke with my friends that I want a Kim K or should I say a Kim West life. But do we really want her life in retrospect ? I personally just the finical part of her life. With that being said my blog will also be telling you about my side hustles I do to make a little extra cash. I currently work in retail. The cellphone business to be exact. I hope yall enjoy my blog and I will looking forward to yall interacting with me ❤
