But first a fatwa about liars that some people should read:
Lying is the source of all evils. It is the negation of faith. It can never exist in a person who has true faith in Allaah Almighty. It is universally condemned by all humans with a minimally sound nature. “Verily, truthfulness leads to righteousness (birr), and righteousness leads to the Garden. A man speaks truths until he is written with Allaah as a truthful person (siddeeq). Lying leads to wickedness (fujoor), and wickedness leads to the Fire. A man lies until he is written with Allaah as a liar.” [Al-Bukhaari, Muslim]
Liars will end up in the Fire.
As Salaamu Alaikum, XX,
Insha Allah, you will receive this mail. I’m trying to reach out to some of the regulars from the blog. I just want to let you know why the blog shut down.
A few week before shutting down, I had received an email from Lah, saying she knew my real identity and that of my husband and was going to the police about polygamy. She’s an ignorant fool. I know the laws and the system. Prior to it, she had been harassing me by way of email, as I wouldn’t allow her on the blog. When she came to the blog, writing civilly, I allowed her to stay. Note: She was writing from XX but lied saying she was writing from Pakistan.
I then began to receive posts from some guy name “Bob” who said he knew my husband’s and my identity and threatened to contact my husband’s employer to get him fired.
At that point I decided to temporarily shut the blog down for a while, which I put a notice on the blog to that effect. The next day I visited Fiona’s blog. Low and behold my real name is on it, my husband’s name is on it, an article from the newspaper about my husband is on it, so is my Facebook page and Google plus page – oh, and the obituary of my husband’s mother.
I immediately contacted my wali/bestess who took everything associated with polygamy off the internet. I shut the blog down completely.
I suspect my husband’s ignorant, uneducated wife revealed my name out of spite not knowing they’d investigate and find out about him, as well. Anyhow, he won’t believe she did, but what else is new when it comes to that straight up kaffur liar.
Nonetheless, I read some of Fiona’s blog, only to find that Kim also known as “unchained” on Fiona’s blog and Jenny also known as “happy” on Fiona’s blog had their hands in the investigation of me.
I contacted Jenny by email and tell her that I’m aware of what’s been going on and I will take the article that is in the newspaper online (that a commentator from our blog sent me months ago) will put it online with her comments and expose her the same as she has done me. Well, Jenny insist it was “C” who did it and told me to do this, that and the other. She said she’d email Fiona, and will ask her to remove the information. She sent Fiona a weak email asking her to remove the information, as my family and I were being threatened. Fiona asked Jenny why I hadn’t contact her (Fiona) herself. Jenny emailed me saying she didn’t know how to answer. I only said “Thanks” to Jenny and it ended there. Note: I have no intention of doing what I said I’d do to Jenny.
Well, there you have it. I will not re-open the blog, at least not until my husband retires, which won’t be for another three years.
XX, I felt you deserved to know what happened. You’ve been a wonderful sister and I can’t begin to thank you for all your input on the blog. I am blessed to know you. I pray the best for you and your family. Insha Allah, we’ll stay in touch.Much salaams!A
