It’s World Hijab Day! Hijab is a commitment and confidence that’s built out of love for Allah (swt). It’s Allah’s command, my duty, and my akhirah.
Wearing hijab is a choice I made last year. It’s not my weakness. Neither am I oppressed. I wasn’t forced by my father, husband or my brother to wearing a scarf on my head. On the contrary, actually. It’s still taking my husband some time to actually get used to seeing a hijab on me. However, he says he will not come between me and Allah 🙂 and respects my decision.
I started wearing the hijab the moment we left home for Umrah last year. Once we were done performing the rituals, my husband thought I was going to take it off at the airport on our way back. He asked me to at the airport and it’s still on! You see, it was never forced on me. My decision, my choice for Allah.
If you are someone who never met a hijabi, or think hijabis are oppressed, let me tell you something. Judge me for what is in my mind, my character, and my goals and ambitions. Not what I’m wearing on my head. My hijab doesn’t stop me from being who I am, what I want to do or where I want to go. It doesn’t stop me from reaching my goals. As an added benefit, it saves me from bad hair days, although I run into bad hijab days sometimes!
Every year, women both Muslims and non-Muslims are openly invited to wear a hijab for the day on February 1st in order to better understand the reasoning behind wearing them. I invite all my friends to wear your scarf as a hijab for a day and take sometime to better understand the reasoning behind wearing one.
In order to celebrate World Hijab Day, you have a chance to give our Moroccan Dream scarf for FREE to someone you love. You can keep it too, we won’t mind.
