This Episode Dua and Afroze talk to Areej, and how her divorce made her a stronger woman, how it was the best decision for her children and her life. Areej’s story is both compelling and heart breaking. From migrating to the US from Palestine at the age of 18, to fighting for her motherhood amidst her divorce battle, Arreej’s story is one of triumph, grief, ambition, and persistence. Dua and Afroze highlight a message that they’ve always stood by, that w woman’s divorce does not define her, but it certainly shows that a woman worth does not entail the tolerance of emotionally and/or physically abusive marriages. Areej’s story embodies just that as well as how Islam can be weaponized in order to control a woman in a marriage.
