I wear hijab in secret

By Juliana (MN, USA)

I actually wear hijab in secret. I am Christian and Cherokee from Minneapolis, MN and it is not widely accepted here. It is unlikely to receive support from friends and some family. Therefore, I only wear hijab when I know I will not run into them.

I feel so much more comfortable covering up. Hijab has been speaking to me for a long time and World Hijab Day is the first day I will proudly wear hijab in front of friends and family. I am hoping I can find the courage to continue wearing hijab happily and proudly for many days to come after. It is hard without support, but I think I have found truth in hijab.

I am such a better person when I am wearing it. I am constantly reminded to pray and be kind. I hope this day can help someone else find the joys of hijab as I am finding now.

  1. My family accepts it, my husband does not. I feel empty without it. I’m not “allowed” to practice openly. I’m reduced to prayer when he isn’t home, or while I shower. Allah should not be loved in secret, Sisters. WE NEED TO BE STRONG.
