One day Khadija went to Rasheeda’s house so that they both can complete the university assignment together. Rasheeda’s Mother open the door, Khadija said “Asalaam Walikum Humaira Aunty! How are you today?” Rasheeda’s mother ignored the salaam and made an arrogant face and went towards the kitchen.
Khadija was not quite shock of her mother’s behavior because she always greeted her in that manner. Anyhow as time passed they both graduated. Now they both decided that they should start a new business together regarding embroidery designs of hijabs. Rasheeda started to wear hijab during her friendship with Khadija, in which her mother objected her no to wear it but as a true women of faith this was the only command she had to disobey. As time passed Rasheed’s mother hatred towards Khadija was growing bigger and bigger. Now she decided that Rasheeda’s should stop doing these orthodox business and get married. Soon arguments started regarding her business and wearing hijab on regular basis with her mother. The fight went to that state where her mother threaten her that she is going to disown her if she doesn’t stop doing business with Khadija and wearing hijab. One day her mother went to Khadija’s house to tell her straight on her face that she should leave Rasheeda alone. While Rasheeda’s other was waiting outside of her house to wait for Khadija to open the door she had a glance from a main window and she was shocked . She saw Khadija ‘s mother was lying on a couch while she was paralyzed and Khadija was helping her to take her medicines. Seeing all this Allah(Great) put a soft corner in Rasheeda’s mother that she was wrong about Khadija she always thought that these girl who wear hijab and follow Islamic ideology are selfish. When Khadija opened the door Rasheed’s mother hugged her tightly and took all her words back that she used to target her over the years. On the bright side Khadija told her the good news that her daughter Rasheeda made a great strategic plan to run their business and also poor girls who need financial help can be successfully helped. Listening to all this Rasheeda’s mother was feeling proud and also depressed because of all the harsh words she said to her own daughter. Rasheeda entered the drawing room as she was working with Khadija so she was in her house. She hugged her mom, while her mother cried and told her to forgive her.
