"She's different from any other woman because she's the Administrator of a big mosque in Amsterdam. A very unique position not just in a Muslim world but also in Europe." said the Ekspresi section of a local daily, Harian Metro, 2 days ago.
I am so proud of this young lady. IMHO she's the first female administrator of a mosque that I've ever known. Normally the admin of a mosque is a man but this lady has broken the rule and proved to the world that a woman can managed a mosque, a big one at that.
She's still quite young and at her age I am still a green graduate looking for jobs and not matured enough to face the world. Yet, she's already managing a mosque in a country where Islam is not the main religion. Where Islam is still look upon as a threatening religion but I believe that more and more European embracing Islam each day.
Sis Yassemine, all the best to you sis! May Allah bless you in your worldly life and the Hereafter. Even though we are living far apart, I feel like you are just a neighbour.
