Um yeah, sure that's what I meant!

A'salaamu alaikum ya'll. As I posted earlier, my husband and I are in the market to buy our first house insha'allah. Please make du'a for us.

I called a realtor today to ask about a certain property for sale and she asked to meet with me. I was explaining that we have specific requirements with our home loan due to our religion. Here is a transcript of that conversation:

Realtor Lady: Oh you have special religious requirements? What religion are you?

Me: (Had already said Muslim but guess she didn't hear) "Oh we are Muslim" thinking her cell phone didn't pick up on that word the first time.

RL: "Oh that's ok, don't worry."

Me: (Uhhhhhh ok.)

RL: "Blah blah blah let's meet at Solomon Pond Mall on Monday. Is that good for you?"

Me: "Yep that will be great. Well I'll be the one with the headscarf on so you shouldn't get too confused." (grinning)

RL: "Ohhh yes and I am sure you will be BEAUTIFUL with it on. Just BEAUTIFUL."

Me: ( Uhhhhhh ok.... )

LOL I guess because it's kind of awkward for HER she was transposing her feelings onto me. Nope, wasn't apologizing, just making my little joke that I will stand out amongst all of the non-headcover wearing folk that will be at the mall.

Oh my, oh my. Funny stuff.

LOL!! Reminds of the saying"If you don't know what to say, don't say anything" She didn't have to add all those extra words. Oh well maybe she will learn something by meeting you :)

It's funny I find when some people aren't so used to being around Muslims they are either rude or overly nice.

Salaam my sisters! You know, I think she even said, your beautiful headscarf but I can't remember for sure. lol

Honestly what was going through my head was... you have no idea WHAT I look like. And I am NOT a snazzy dresser. lol

Insha'Allah I can teach her at least that Muslims don't have to fit into a mold; we come in all shapes, sizes, hijabs ;-) and colors!
