My Instagram Share: Me and Books

Standard

Salam dear readers,

This is me sharing with you some of my Instagram posts, which have books in them.. I really love posting on Instagram and I like sharing that with you.. So without further ado, these are the 5 selected photos:

#julywithcj Day 7: Books that melt your heart. These books gave me different beautiful feelings, and they will always be ones of my favourite books. In this picture, I’ve put only the books that I have in the moment. There are so many more, but either I gave them to one of my friends or I’ve got them from the library or from one of my friends, so I don’t own them in the moment. What are some of the books that melt your heart? #me #reading #books #bookstagram #bookphotography #bookworm #morocco #marrakech #instalike #instagood #beauty #photography #photooftheday #colors #الحمدلله #watch #Antigone #littlewomen #harrypotter #thegreatgatsby #pens #candles #read #كتب #اقرأ #كتبي #lire #livres #kaoutar_chahbane

#My Instagram Share#: My Hijab

Standard

Salam dear friends,

This is to share with you what I often post in my Instagram.

#Me-and-Hijab

#HijabToMe ⏩⏩⏩ I’m posting this to support @huffingtonpost initiative to introduce hijab, its diversity, and its beauty. Why do I wear hijab? Why am I so proud of wearing it? And what does it represent to me? Hijab is my way to show that I am a Muslim, and that I am proud to be. #Hijab is my way to show that modestey does not limit creativity, intelligence,  and confidence.  What really limits those is ignorance. My hijab is my way to fight against stereotypes. My hijab in an everyday reminder of who I am, and why I’m Muslim. It’s even a daily reminder of the reasons of my existence. Hijab is my way of showing my respect and love of my #religion and my #identity. Wearing hijab does not mean ’oppression’. On the contrary, it’s a very high/beautiful form of liberation. It’s part of my confidence and personality. I love wearing hijab. I love being a Muslim, and I will always be a proud to be one. Being a Muslim means that I respect my Islamic believes, values, and way of living. It also means that I respect/accept every other human in this earth, their believes, and ways of living. That’s what wearing hijab means to me. I don’t normally post my pictures,  but this is an exception, and it’s for a beautiful reason. The picture is a #tbt to my graduation day last #summer #2015. #me #being #muslim #muslimah #islam #morocco #marrakech #hijab #love #reading #books #bookstagram #photooftheday #photography #المغرب #اسلام #الحمدلله #women #حجاب #beauty #salam #kaoutar_chahbane

I will try to post more often insha’ALLAH, after finishing the exams and the endless tasks and presentations 😉 I have many posts that are already written, but for some unknown/known reasons, I was not able to post them.. It will happen, I promise, insha’ALLAH 🙂

Talk to you soon insha’ALLAH.

January__March: Top 4 Books I Read.

Standard

Salam dear readers,

I hope you’re doing great.. In the past 3 months, I read a total of 19 books.  Although I did not enjoy many _most_ of them, but still, 19 is a good number for a start.It’s also much better than the same time last year. I wanted to include 5 books in here, but I decided to talk  about 4 only.

Three Men In a Boat

(((( Read the Instagram caption ))))

I’ve just finished reading this book. It took me awhile to read it, but I read most of it in the past 3 days, so I think that is a good thing 📚📚📚📚📚 “Let your boat of life be light, packed with only what you need – a homely home and simple pleasures, one or two friends, worth the name, someone to love and someone to love you, a cat, a dog, and a pipe or two, enough to eat and enough to wear, and a little more than enough to drink; for thirst is a dangerous thing. ” ☺📚☺📚☺📚☺ I give it a 4 ☆ out of 5. At first, I thought of giving it 3,5 but it’s worth more. It made me smile, laugh, and think. It is full of knowledge, and it just brushes up my British history knowledge. At some point, it can seem hard to follow, specially with the heavy description of London streets, rivers, and monuments. But it’s just a unique book. I don’t know why, but while reading it, it keeps reminding me of Charlie Chaplin and all those silent funny movies. I imagined the characters as those actors with their outfit, hats, and all those beautiful characteristics. It is also based on real events that the author and his friends experienced, so that’s definitely a plus. The book shows that the author is a man of experience, that he knows what he’s talking about, that he has a very smart sense of humor, and that he’s wise. I really recommend this to all of you dear readers, especially to the ones who like a good funny British classic. 🔭📚🔭📚📚🔭📚🔭 That's it… I’m going to go back now to reading my other Arabic book 😊☺😊 #me #reading #books #bookstagram #bookphotography #bookworm #morocco #marrakech #instalike #instagood #beauty #nature #igreads #currentread #whatareyoureading #boat #classic #كتب #اقرأ #كتبي ر

Guns

My favorite read of the February , this very very short book was a gift from myself to my mind. In short, it talks about guns in the US, precisely. It is brilliantly written, it doesn’t take time, and you (all of you) should go and read it now.

Communication Across Cultures

I had to read this book for a class assignment. We were assigned to read the book, give a summary in Arabic, and translate a part of it into Arabic, along with other things. This was a very useful read. It takes time, but it is worth it. I had to read some chapters 3 or 4 times to avoid misunderstanding or misinterpretation; but again, it was worth it. If you are a translation student or just interested in translation, I would highly recommend this.

عائد الى حيفا

I actually didn’t like this book at first, meaning the first pages. I’m glad that I didn’t stop there. While progressing,  I liked every aspect of the story. The dialogue was so strong and powerful. You can actually sense all the feelings the author wants to convey, and I like that. If you’re an Arab, if you can read Arabic, and if you like a short books (it’s 76 pages long) that makes you feel, read this one.

“أتعرفين ما هو الوطن يا صفية ؟ الوطن هو ألا يحدث ذلك كله.”

That’s it for today. Talk to you soon insha’ALLAH.
