At the age of 11, when every Muslim around me was fasting, I was unable to be a part of this due to health issues. Depressed, I decided I wanted to do something else to please my lord, I knew that hijab was obligatory. However, as no one other in my family wore the hijab, it had never been something which I had thought I would do. Being only 11 when telling my family, they claimed I was too young, I would get bullied. But when I explained it would only be for a month, they agreed.
The hijab when I first put it on was difficult. People called me ugly, others stopped communicating with me.
Today, At the age of 20. I am still wearing a hijab. It never came off after that Ramadan. Hijab was the right choice for me. It defines me, it allows others to know I’m a Muslim – and when I am about to do something haram, the hijab serves as a reminder for me.
Now my sister is at the same stage as me, finding her way with the hijab. Hijab can’t be forced, it’s a choice and believe me the right choice. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. Where are the most precious pearls found- under the sea, hidden. Gold? Deep in mines. The best of things are hidden, so protect yourself. Stay modest. May Allah give us all strength to follow his commands and grant us Jannah in sha Allah, ameen. Love you all for the sake of Allah SWT.Comment
