Smile, it’s a sunnah!
I’ve come to the conclusion that irrespective of my sisters not returning my smiles and looking at me weird, I’m still going to smile. And Inshallah I am going to offer them Salam whether I know them or not. I figure these are small things I can change and adopt for the better, so why not?! After all, out of all the sunnah acts prescribed to us, smiling is the simplest. And it’s actually better for me, my mood and Iman than anything else!
