I am going to step out today.
She wasn’t strong enough to hold me.
She felt too much, hurt too much, gathered broken pieces that didn’t belong to her.
She’s a thief of pain and sorrow.
She’s the shadow, always appearing when the Light hits me.
I don’t want her…
I’ll let the Light surround me and drown her out.
Force her to fade and be swallowed by the brightness.
Let her rest in the silence of my frail faith and welcome the deafening sun.
Today, I am going to step out and leave her behind for Good…



Khadijah Rising launched in 2013 to empower Muslim Women (and Men) of all ages and walks of life with the beauty and Truth of Islam. It is a call for Sisters (and Brothers) to realize that change for the better is possible, but not without Allah SWT and not without complete submission to His Will and Commands, Insha'Allah.

“For Muslim men and women, for believing men and women, for devout men and women, for true men and women, for men and women who are patient and constant, for men and women who humble themselves, for men and women who give in charity, for men and women who fast, for men and women who guard their chastity, and for men and women who engage much in Allah’s praise, for them has Allah prepared forgiveness and great reward.”
[The Noble Quran 33:35]
