I need feminism because too many people still don’t realize that if women have the right to choose to wear miniskirts and tube tops, we also have the right to choose to wear head scarves and hijab.
I think every woman need to wear the hijab for a day at least once in their life time.
Why? Because I think it’s a very enlightening experiences that women- especially in this time we live in- should know or have. It’s more than a religious identity more than anything you think hijab/vail is. Do you think you’re strong enough to go out as who you are and not how you look like? For us Muslims wearing hijab is a very great deal, although it unite us in some kind of universal sisterhood that make an amazing connection between a complete strangers, although that is really beautiful, the decision to wear it now in this terrifying world we made, is very challenging. Alhamdulillah that I’m in a country where not wearing it is what looks/feels strange, every time I read a sister story in my dashboard or a book or blog.. it makes me think again and again not only how lucky I am to have my right without a fear, or how lucky they are for the ajr for their jihad inshaAllah, but also how it is now truly and literally carrying Islam on your head. No one now recognise the hijab as anything else but Islam, although Judaism, and Christianity have the concept of covering the head aka the veil/hijab. let me at the end of this …-I don’t even know what this is lol- quote something :
"That’s when this warm feeling buzzes through you and you smile to yourself, knowing God’s watching you, knowing that He knows you’re trying to be strong to please Him. Like you’re both in on a private joke and something special and warm and extraordinary is happening and nobody else in the world knows about it because it’s you’re experience, your own personal friendship with your Creator. I guess when I’m not wearing the hijab I feel like I’m missing out. I feel cheated out of that special bond." __Randa Abdel-Fattah.

When asked about her Hijab by Journalists and how it is not proportionate with her level of intellect and education, she replied:
“Man in the early times was almost naked, and as his intellect evolved he started wearing clothes. What I am today and what I’m wearing represents the highest level of thought and civilization that man has achieved, and is not regressive. It’s the removal of clothes again that is regressive back to ancient times” - Noble Laurette from Yemen, Tawakul Karman
|Why Muslim girls have to wear hijab?|
Have to? we don’t have to! we choose to wear it.
You see Anon, we believe that women have the right to be seen not as an objects or some kind of a show to whoever want it/or not!.. in this world good things are hard to find and you know why? because we my friend lost the power to see them! and not only that, but we also have created masks and created a universal specifications that tells you -through the media- how to look, what to wear, how much to weight..ect.
But be honest for a second, what does “the inside voice” tells you? forget about religions and society and trying to “impress someone” and try to look like the girls in magazines all that.. just think about someone you love.. now I don’t know if you’re a guy or a girl but if you’re a girl picture yourself meeting “the one”, and if you’re a guy picture it the other way around. what do you want that girl to be wearing?
You’ll say it’s not the same! well, is the head cover really your problem? I don’t think so.
And you know?.. Muslims wearing this or that wasn’t an issue before Islam haters decided to make it so.
