My hijab

April 30, 2013

My hijab allows me to leave the shallow notion that a woman’s worth is the equivalent of her physical beauty behind.

My hijab allows me to be heard, not seen.

My hijab allows people to appreciate me, not my physical appearance.

My hijab frees my time to focus on issues that matter instead of spending it fussing over my hair, and touching up my make-up.

My hijab allows me to concentrate on what I am doing at school, or work, not on who is looking at me.

My hijab doesn’t care what my hair looks like.

My hijab doesn’t care about my make-up.

My hijab doesn’t care what I have on today.

My hijab knows that I am much more than “another pretty girl”.

My hijab doesn’t care if I go to the gym.

My hijab doesn’t concern itself with the wrinkles that are slowly forming around my eyes.

My hijab doesn’t care about my age.

My hijab liberates me.

My hijab is beautiful.
