A lady on another blog told a funny anekdote, she failed to recognise her friend as she walked by…
Her friend was angry!
These things will happen….

Maybe her burka’ed friend didnt recognise her! Maybe she was too busy listening to her ipoooo. Maybe she was actually a man.

Or maybe her fast was getting to her. Coz it sure as hell is getting to me today.I manned up and only had a glass of water.

I am so regretting it now!

LOL.

It actually has happened to one of us, rather surprisingly!

Seriously, this has happened to me before. How did you know?

Suggestion though, the cartoon should say “why didn’t you give me salaams?”. These women NEVER just greet each other with a “hello”….big no no.

What would happen if they greeted each other with a watcha saying, safe, or proper gangster salutaries.?

jman, welcome to my blog, all first-time commentators have to be moderated before their comments can come through. Three of your comments were in spam, maybe because you add your link again at the bottom of your comment, that is superfluous, if people are interested in your comments they can click your name.
It’s the hijabi who didn’t recognise the niqaabed lady. Can you blame her?
A glass of water! That means making up later!

Haleem, well, if you insist on going fully veiled, and don’t wear a name-tag, you can’t complain if people don’t recognise you!

sabiwabi, I understood the lady was a western convert, or revert, maybe that’s why. Or maybe she said salaam, it was just a funny anecdote and I saw it right in front of my mind’s eye, and just had to make a drawing! 😀

jman, ah, ehm, you didn’t subscribe to a saudi blog, you subscribed to a Dutch blog with saudi friends…..
You can’t have read enough of the blog! 😉

Oh, and that shameless advertising of your own blog borders on spam according to the clouddragon blogrules!
desist sir!
or madam….

loved the snowman ice-cream

Ha. I actually came across it whilst searching for Saudi Blogs. I admit though I must have missed the Dutch part of your blog. Unless that is when you are talking about horses. Those pretty pictures are definately not of Saudi.

As you have officially told me not (although i wish you hadnt) i will stop putting a link to my most brilliant blog. 🙂

Keep up the good work.

You know what I love about this drawing? It so REAL! Their expressions are so clear! I mean, for a niqabi to actually be able to convey whatever she wants to convey and in a drawing too, is just amazing work!
I like your handwriting by the way 🙂

btw everyone i would like to turn everyone’s attention to a program on the bbc. The Frankinsense (or whatever) trail. The woman is currently going through Saudi Arabia. Catch it on iplayer if you can!

LOL! It has happened to me too and I have to do the guessing game if it’s someone whom I haven’t met for ages!!! It’s so annoying!

Aafke,
If she is a western ‘revert’ she would have more arabic in her speech! And she would not accept a ‘hello’ anyway, only salaams! LOL Especially if she was wearing niqab.

It’s as if eyes can tell who you are! 😀 I’ve always wondered how niqabis recognise one another.I thought it must be thru the size or the smell or even body language if they can see one under all that clothing!

Beautiful drawing once again.I think I’ve to give a unique nickname rather than parroting everytime I see your awesome drawing or painting 😀
