Anyway we went to the library a few weeks ago and I wanted to share the pics with you. Oh right, I wanted to touch on this issue. A couple of beautiful sisters I "know" through the blogosphere have posted recently about their thoughts regarding online privacy and photos. I totally respect their decisions as well as their reasoning. Both sisters are against showing their photos and especially those of their children online. Here's my take:
Obviously I do post pictures here. Yes, I will admit I am proud of my children but that isn't why I show their photos. I just love to share my life with others. When I was a new Muslimah I reallllly wanted to know how Muslims, typical Muslim families, lived. What they were like, what did they eat, how did they spend their spare time. Yeah it might sound crazy but believe me there is a lot of interest in this. :-)
|Aaminah talking to the little buddy.|
I also love developing relationships with other Muslimahs who live near and far. When I see a glimpse of their world, and they of mine, it makes me feel closer. Also my Muslim sisters who live far away can keep up with Aaminah here; I don't have the energy to make a separate blog!!! ;-) Abu Aaminah (her biological father, NOT to be confused with A, her Baba!) has this blog address so he has the option to view her photos and accomplishments.
|She realllly loves the guinea pigs!|
As far as safety issues are concerned I am not worried about any repercussions from showing photos online. We go places; the bank, the library ;-), the grocery store. I have actually had someone snap my pic before with their camera phone. :-( Yeah, right? I didn't say anything because I couldn't be 100% sure but from the way they were staring, whispering, laughing, and pointing and clicking in my direction... yeah. lol Pretty sure.
|Everyone loves bead toys!|
One sister pointed out she tried to protect her photos and yeah, it's almost impossible. Plus time-consuming. I don't like the idea someone might take my photos (especially of my family) and do something... unsavory with them. However, I don't feel I am endangering myself or my family by posting them.
|Love her little fake smile. lol|
May Allah protect us all from the shaitaan and the evils in this world, amin.
