I had an idea i wanted to rebirth, actually Sketched Soul had an idea i wanted to rebirth. Amirah Couture recently put up a post on Instagram which reminded me of a swap i once participated in hosted by Sketched Soul. It was an amazing idea to help build sisterhood, especially since Islam is about being one Ummah.
Prophet Muhammad (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “The similitude of believers in regard to mutual love, affection, fellow-feeling is that of one body; when any limb of it aches, the whole body aches, because of sleeplessness and fever.” [Muslim]
We already have that love and affection towards each other because of Islam. We have this amazing bond. Inshallah this swap is meant to personalize that bond and make it even stronger by sharing personal gifts!
“Exchange gifts, as that will lead to increasing your love to one another.” [Al-Bukhaari]
WHAT YOU WILL DO:
I will start the swap by describing 4 gifts vaguely, and leaving my email address. Below is an example of how it will work:
PERSON A -something natural -something yummy -something purple -something tiny My email: email@example.com --------------------- PERSON B I choose something yummy -something that smells sweet -something shiny -something that grows -something round My email: firstname.lastname@example.org --------------------- PERSON C I choose something that grows -something that stretches -something sour -something bright -something soft My email: email@example.com
Once you leave your comment in the comments below:
-Email the person above you and let them know what you chose.
-Then wait for a person to comment below you and contact you.
-Please try to send out the gift within 2 weeks of being contacted.
-Email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) when you send out your gift.
-Email me once you receive your gift.
-I will update this post as the gifts are sent and received and we can watch our sisterhood grow!
Disclaimer: This is a swap to help strengthen our sisterhood so if you participate please do not leave anyone hanging. You will be banned from all future activities.
