Between Obligation, conscience, beliefs and desire

Blogger Safa's blog was nominated last year for a Brass Crescent Award in the Best Female Blog category. Over the past few days, she's had some tumultuous changes in her life; she's a 35 year old woman with 5 kids, whose husband wanted to take a second wife. Rather than accept her fate, she is divorcing her husband, and is writing about it in real-time. The agony and betrayal, her relationship with her children (eldest, age 12), and of course her rock-solid commitment to Islam and the strength that faith gives her to face it squarely with courage, all are on the page laid bare for all to see. Be witness to her bravery and faith and read her story now.
