After I started studying more about Islam I soon found out about the obligation of hijaab. At first, I was very worried about what people would think if I suddenly started wearing a scarf on my head. I kept on making du’aa for Allah to help me to wear the hijaab. Then slowly I realized that what other people thought didn’t matter, and what really mattered was what Allah thought of me. so I started wearing the head scarf. At first people were a little shocked, but that soon died down. After wearing hijaab, I felt more comfortable and confident. The hijab reminds me of my life’s purpose everyday. It prevents me from living in the reckless way I was accustomed to. It gave me a new sense of self-respect.
