WOW! When was the last time I was on here??? I feel bad about neglecting my blog for so many months…let me try and make up for it πŸ™‚

A few months ago, I read an article in the local Muslim newspaper: The Muslim Link. It was an editorial about Muslim women buying Coach purses. I found it to be an interesting article and understand what the sis is trying to say. Sadly, I think that some people took it the wrong way after reading some comments people left about it.

I think the sister is just reminding her fellow Muslimahs about materialism (which affects us all). I don’t see this as an attack on anyone, and think maybe some people just over analyze everything. It’s true that these purses cost an arm and a leg, and the money can definitely be used for a better cause.

    didnt get to read the article yet but i also think buying $300 purses is a waste of money…Then again, I don’t like shopping either lol.

    I’d rather spend that money on something useful.
