N-O W-O-R-R-I-E-S

The hijabi sat on the edge of the seat. She liked to do that. It was easier to get off the tram, as opposed to taking the window seat and having to push past people when she wanted to deboard. Two people sat across her. There was no one sitting next to her. She also liked wearing dark colours, this hijabi.

She noticed a woman with some baggage come near. She was obviously going to try to maneuver her way to the empty window seat. The hijabi, to save her the trouble, shifted to the empty space beside her, making room for the lady.

The hijabi looked up.

“T.h.a.n.k.y.o.u.”

The lady said it oh-so-slowly, paying attention to the pronounciation of the letters, making sure it all came out nice and clearly.

“No worries.”

The hijabi looked away, quite amused.

Why the Outbackbedouin?

In a time where one is unconsciously impelled to the influences and cultural norms of the western society it inhabits in. In a land down under; where a relatively newly established nation welcomes the coexistence of freedom and opportunity whole heartedly. In a community where Islamic ideology is as diverse as the colours of the spectrum, four young ladies strive to exist.

They are the outbackbedouins; Bedouin in the sense of a nomad with no attachment to either this life or any one group of Islamic thought. However, free thinking and knowing they are not, as these combined is only a fallacy.

They are merely searching for no more than companionship in their self imposed obligation to communicate their thoughts and possessed knowledge from the Quran and the Prophet to the world, not only for the greater good of spreading the deen, but to uphold their own.

So join these ladies when you’re in the quest for inspiration, enlightenment, public debate, entertainment, or nothing more than a place to transmit knowledge of truth; that is Islam.
