7 Reasons Why I Love Wearing the Hijab | thesewist.me

As my fellow hijabi sisters around the world celebrate World Hijab Day I decided to share 7 reasons why I love wearing the hijab.

7 Reasons Why I Love Wearing the Hijab | thesewist,me

1. It’s my identity

It is part of who I am and believe it or not being a hijab has played a MAJOR role in who I have become. At the age of 16 I was one of the first of my friends to wear it, I shared my hijab story for those interested. I never saw it as a burden to me it was simple, a commitment that I am making to my creator. It doesn’t really involve anyone but myself which I believe is where the beauty lies just like prayer it is between you and Allah.

2. No bad hair days

Well I might have bad hair days but no one would know LOL

3. Present my true self

Wearing the hijab in addition to it being and act of worship it is teaches us to be modest. Although it may seems like it is a cloth on your head well it isn’t. It is a form of modesty, by concealing our physical beauty and letting our inner beauty (kindness, compassion, positivity) and our mind define who we are, not our looks.

4. Constant reminder of who I am

That I am a muslim and that I have a huge responsibility of wearing it as I am representing not only myself but my religion. To have that kind of responsibility is HUGE especially in the times that we are currently living in.

5. Makes me feel safe

I don’t really know how to explain this but subhan Allah that is how I feel..

6. Ablility to make a difference

Alhamdulilah the ability to inspire muslim women to wear it and own it.

7. Challenges me to be creative

Dressing up modestly is a daily challenge! So wearing the hijabi pushes my creative fashion sense to find pieces that I can put together to suit my style! Yup the struggle is indeed very real but grateful that there are many designer lables now offering modest fashion for women like us.

  1. There are many benefits of wearing hijab. It protects your skin from sunrays. It protects your hairs from dust. And it protects a lady from bad attentions. Actually these are three most important things of a modest female’s life. Thus as a Muslim lady you should wear it in all those countries where they are not banned.

  2. E.L.M says:

    There is only one reason why I wear hijab: To show my faith/ devotion to Allah.

    I was told by a friend that I don’t have to be Muslim to wear the hijab (they thought I was just reverting because of the fact I enjoy wearing it). I was like “No way, I want to worship Allah even if I couldn’t wear Hijab for some reason.”
