Assalamu ‘alaykum brothers and sisters,
I would firstly like to mention that I came to the religion of Islam a few months ago. Before Islam, I hated the life I was living because I was constantly being chased by men and would just want me for my beauty. Before I accepted Islam I had this one scarf that I would always put on and would look into the mirror and admire the scarf. I always had a thought running in my mind of how would it feel to wear this outside every day. Then I accepted Islam and I wore the full hijab straight away and subhanAllah, I cannot explain how honoured and protected the hijab had made me feel and still does until this very day. I walked around with a smile on my face because of how safe I felt. Before Islam, I wouldn’t really dress in an appropriate manner and I would always be getting chased and stalked by strangers on the road. I never really felt happy inside because I was living a fake life of oppression that we see on the TV and in the magazines. Where women sell their bodies and have no shame to expose their bodies making it on the front page of every newspaper and every magazine. All for what? Just to get the attention from men. Alhamdulillah, Allah took me out of that and carried me to the light of Islam. A light that will always be in my heart and will inshaa Allah NEVER fade away because wallaahi I feel so scared to go back to that life which, I’m telling you, is something which you don’t even want to taste. Alhamdulillah, sisters we have this great opportunity to cover ourselves and keep our hearts free from these diseases and the ills of these disgusting society in which we live in. Let’s not be afraid to show that the hijab is what makes us real woman. It gives us honour and dignity and allows us to walk around with no evil thoughts going around and to please our Creator. May Allah keep us guided and protect us from all the corruption in this society and keep our hearts pure. Ameen .
- masha’allah all these stories on this website are so beautiful. firstly, i’ve always been a muslim alhamdullilah. last week i went on this website and read all these amazing stories about converting, wearing the jilbaab and wearing the niqaab. subhanallah, it was when i fell in love with them that i really wanted to go get a jilbaab & niqaab. i told my mum that i wanted a jilbaab and she was really keen on the idea alhamdullilah. so i got my jilbaab & started wearing it. on the same day i brought a niqaab but didn’t tell my mum, because i knew she would say “what about school” or “your only 15, wait after marriage” subhanallah, for years my mum has disliked the niqaab, but seriously it didn’t bother me. i’m only on this dunya to impress the creator, not his creations. so i was wearing the jilbaab for 2days when i decided i wanted to go visit a family member and wore my jilbaab and niqaab. as i was about to leave the house, my mum saw me as i was avoiding her, she looked at me and shook her head. then my sister saw me who is a year older and said “you serious” subhanallah, these comments and actions didn’t affect me as i know Allah (swc) will be with me. i went to my cousins house and she said to me “no; you ain’t going with that niqaab thing” i said “no, i am; hurry up let’s go” as i quickly fixed my niqaab in the mirror, her mum saw me and said “no, that’s too much take it off” i got upset subhanallah and thought, if everyone’s against it & my own family members ain’t supporting me, then take it off. i took it off i went out. subhanallah, no-one understands how much i absolute regret the fact that i took it off after few ridiculous comments. that night, when i came home; i went straight to my room without talking to anyone. yesterday, it was friday, jummah kair masha’allah. as i put on my jilbaab and niqaab my mum said “and where do you think your going” i looked her in the eye and said “friday prayer. she looked at me said nothing. i went with my jilbaab and niqaab and prayed. i came home with a big smile and was never happier. it didn’t bother me at all that i’m the only one who wears a jilbaab and niqaab in my house, because its all for Allah (swc); and wallahi them stupid comments on the side would never matter if you put your full trust in Allah the most gracious the most merciful and he will guide you. one last point, seriously, seriously, i’ve NEVER felt safer in my life whilst wearing a jilbaab and niqaab; & masha’allah the area i live in, masha’allah, the amount of jilbaabis & niqaabis. nothing more can make me happy than practising the deen of Allah and dressing the way he wants us to. May allah (swc) forgive us all & guide us to the right path. Ameen.
