In support of the hijab

February 2, 2016

How about the hijab being liberating? How the touch of material can make a woman feel her own femininity, the pleasure of a love heightened -Yusra Warsama, Poet & Actor during her performance in Kenya.

Here’s my hijab

I actually heard about the World Hijab Day (February 1st) on Kenyan radio yesterday. After seeing the call to experience the hijab for a day, here’s what….

I am a spiritual woman, not religious and definitely not Muslim. I have Muslim family members though. And while we do not agree on everything Islam teaches, I support hijab-wearing. But not forced hijab-wearing-only by choice.

And here’s the thing, I like wearing the hijab occassionally too. For me, its more than just about religion, it is culture (Very similar to the head-scarves we have always worn as Africans but can’t wear to some places of work today). It is beautiful too, even fashionable (When you see all the different types and colours available).

Here is to letting them be who they are because #iamtolerant and the world needs their difference, their beauty, their mystique.

 

all the way

me going all the way 😉
