Here’s a little story about my hijab.
I know this may sound weird but .. I Love My Hijab. Like seriously I love it.
I know that most girls complain about it, in fact they give up on it and decide to take it off. But I never had second thoughts about taking it off. When I decided to wear it, I was in year 5. I think I was 11 back then. I wore it on a very special day. I wore it on my Birthday.
My dad asked me what I wanted for my birthday. I told him I wanted a hijab. He was extremely proud of me but he kept telling me “Maie, you’re too young. You don’t have to wear it now. If you wear it now there’s no going back. You can’t ever take it off. Ever. ” I replied “ I know what I want. And this is what I want.” I know if I didn’t take that decision back then I wouldn’t have been the person that I am today. Hijab shaped my personality, my attitude, my way of thinking. Everything! People keep constantly underestimating the power of hijab. Hijab is respect, honour and dignity. Its beauty that is concealed and only the ones that appreciate it see this hidden beauty that lies right beneath their eyes. I just wish people can see hijab the way I do. I wish people can love hijab the way I do. And I know that I don’t dress up properly but I’m on the road to do so. With just a little faith and a little commitment & inshallah everything will turn out fine.
Happy 8th anniversary hijab ♥
