Swimwear for Islamic women has come a long way, and now includes some great styles, with amazing quality. Most garments are high-end, with specially designed fabric to be lightweight and water repellant.
The values of the Quran hold a Muslim responsible for treating all people, whether Muslim or non-Muslim, kindly and justly, protecting the needy and the innocent and “preventing the dissemination of mischief”.

It is astonishing that some people who invoke God by this noble name live their lives in contention and hostility towards the world.

When I was younger and much more naïve, I used to desire the world to become a place where all Muslims lived in an idyllic utopia; where everyone was righteous, got along well, never got angry or argued with another, and never harbored the slightest of ill will in their hearts...
