I am Little Red Hiding Hood

Everyone's been asking me about Little Red Riding Hood. It started with Shariq, a student in the Arabic course I TAed on sunnipath, asking me if I knew that my name means The Little Red one. That reminded me of Little Red Riding Hood. And then today on our way to Jabel Hafeet, Jeewan told me to look up this video:

My name means redness, or the little red one.
I can be an Arabic verb
or the Little Red Riding Hood in Hoodwinked.
My name was Aisha (ra)'s nickname given to her by the Prophet (pbuh).
And I wish I was the Little Red Riding Hood struggling for my brothers and sisters.
