Hijab is a beautiful display of faith and modesty and it is the environment around us that can make us feel like it is not.
It’s not the fact that you’re a Hijabi that’s making you stop doing certain activities or hang in certain places. To all intents and purposes a piece of fabric can not hold you back from doing anything.
It is the environment. It is in fact the SOCIETY.
If you can’t swim in hotels because the Burkini is banned (Like it is the case in Tunisia, A MUSLIM COUNTRY, let us not talk about the western world ), it’s not your fault! nor the Hijab’s! The problem exists within the society.
Hijab was never and will never be a limit.
But let’s face it sometimes we can not change the whole society all at once. Thus, we should pay close attention to our surrounding. “Your vibe attracts your tribe” they say, however the way around is also correct “Your tribe attract your vibe”.
Motivational speaker Jim Rohn famously said that “we are the average of the five people we spend the most time with.
Sometimes your closest friends, your family, classmates.. and even people you follow on social media that can influence you to see the hijab differently, to see it as something that’s stopping you from having fun or to even make you feel like you’re left out.
No matter how “thick-skin” you can be, consuming “western” digital content everyday can make you feel less stylish and less fun.. Once you realize that, you’ll be mindful of what you feed your mind daily.
When Allah the almighty made the Hijab Fard (mandatory), it was for our own benefit and we will eventually be rewarded for it. So next time you put your Hijab on remember that you’re putting a verse of the Quran on.
