Islam is not only a blessing it dignifies the human being. This is so plainly displayed on my brave sister Ameena Mathews in her acceptance speech on BET:
وَلَقَدْ كَرَّمْنَا بَنِي آدَمَ وَحَمَلْنَاهُمْ فِي الْبَرِّ وَالْبَحْرِ وَرَزَقْنَاهُمْ مِنَ الطَّيِّبَاتِ وَفَضَّلْنَاهُمْ عَلَىٰ كَثِيرٍ مِمَّنْ خَلَقْنَا تَفْضِيلً
“And We have honored the Children of Adam and conveyed them on land and sea and provided them with good things and preferred them greatly over many We have created.”
May Allah bless and preserve her and her family.
