“I divorced my husband several years ago. I do not need a man in my life to take care of me. I am perfectly capable of taking care of myself. In Islam, you’re not supposed to get divorced, but some people, like me, still do it. I am looked down upon in the community and am seen as a bad person. I don’t care though. I like the freedom I have given myself by divorcing my husband. I work hard and am proud of the way that I am able to take care of myself.”
How could we pray?
Pray for those who are shunned or shamed by the Hui community because of their decisions or lifestyle. Pray they will have an experience like the Samaritan woman at the well.
“幾年前我跟丈夫離婚了。我的生活中不需要有男人來照 顧我。我完全有能力照顧自己。在伊斯蘭教中，你不應該離婚，但有些人，就像我一樣，還是離了。社區裡的人看不起我，他們看我是一個壞人。但我不在乎。我喜歡離婚給自己帶來的自由。我 努力工作，也很自豪我有辦法照顧好自己。”
