He said, She said

This excerpt of a blogpost by Sister On a Mission shows us the metaphor in our communal prayer.

“There is wisdom and a primer for society in the way the prayers are performed. Men in front, protecting, serving and leading their families and communities. Women bringing up the rear - disciplining, nurturing and teaching the children, making sure they don't fall out of line or out of love in the community, and protecting them from the back-door dangers of the world - like doubt and negative peer pressure - with unflinching love and care. And the young men and women in the middle - secure and protected from all sides while they learn and grow into mature adults who will take their complimentary places in the community when they come of age.”

Salam Sister ummahzy,
Nice to come across your blog.
I was reading on Azly Rehman's blog, where you had left a comment which pretty much resonated my own thought.
I clicked on, leading me to all three of your blogs.

Reading on, made me pretty much interested of things you passionately write on.

Your Bro in Islam,
