Isn't Mary the mother of Jesus/Isa. shown everywhere wearing the hijab, even in paintings, statues of her? I wish I'd said, "How is Mary the mother of Jesus any different? How is it that you can respect her so much, yet you don't respect me?"
It has been slightly more than a month since I made the promise to Allah (s.w.t) that I'd be in hijab for good. I've come far from being concerned about physical appearances because I can now see the glow (Nur) in the faces of the women who are truly at peace and joy with their faith, and that is the most beautiful appearance of all because it shines from within.
You judge me by what's on my head, So convinced by the rumors which the channels spread. You call me imprisoned, you call me oppressed, merely because of the way I'm dressed. How little do you know about with what I've been blessed.
Hijabi fashionistas are becoming really popular in the world nowadays, with different styles and trends of hijab due to differences in taste, culture, and such. We converts have our own little world of trends, creatively developed to adapt ourselves to the transiting phases of becoming a full time hijabi.
