      More about the Aceh Province law — It doesn’t just “affect women” — it’s absolutely detrimental to their human rights. The law will make adultery punishable by stoning! (Among other disgusting things.)

      To Safiyyah:
      I really liked your message about women attending the Eid prayer.
      I took the Shahada a week before Eid and the first time I prayed in the Masjid was yesterday for the Eid prayer. It was in Derby, England. A lot of women were turned up and were there for a purpose. It was so beautiful, I felt such peace like I had never experienced before. I can honestly say that as long as I am physically able, I don’t ever want to miss the Eid prayer at any stage throughout my life.
