I Am A Hijabi And I Am Not A Terrorist

Hijab is a symbol of modesty it includes the way a person walk, talks, looks and thinks.

It is basically an identification of a Muslim lady. Being a muslim we should be thankful to Allah who has gifted us a very peaceful life. Islam suggested that the body and head of a muslim women should be cover.

Verily, men who surrender unto God, and women who surrender, and men who believe and women who believe, and men who obey and women who obey, and men who speak the truth and women who speak the truth…and men who give alms and women who give alms, and men who fast and women who fast, and men who guard their modesty and women who guard (their modesty), and men who remember God much and women who remember – God hath prepared for them forgiveness and a vast reward.

Surat al-Azhab (33:35):

Some Muslim women living in the Muslim countries think that if they would wear a hijab, it would mean they are conservative and backward. There are many Muslim women living in non-muslim countries who wear hijab in colleges, universities, and offices despite strict restrictions.

During the inaugural match of the 2016 Under-17 Women’s World Cup Tasneem Abu-Rob and Rand Albustanji, two of Jordan’s starters wore headscarves on the pitch. They became the first players to wear a hijab at a FIFA-sanctioned world tournament.

Hijab in Europe, worn by Muslim women, has become a symbol of the presence of Islam in western Europe. In several countries, the hijab has led to political controversies and a legal ban. Austria, Denmark, France, Belgium, Latvia, and Bulgaria have recently banned hijab. They have justified this ban as anti-terrorism measures. In France, women will have to pay 150 euro as fine for wearing hijab in the public spaces.

Being Muslims, we should raise our voices against this ban of hijab. Everyone should be given the freedom of practicing its religion freely in any part of the world. It is not an opression or any cultural clash . It is a choice. It is relief. It is protection. It’s part of me. And it is part of the culture I belong to and it is part of my religion.

Hijab is my choice. It has never restricted me from thinking freely or living freely. I do this to please Allah — my creator. I wish He writes my name on the list of those people who are dear to Him.

In the history of islam, Sahabaas suffered a lot in the hands of non-believers but they remained to stick to their values and at the end, Allah rewarded them with His blessings. Like any other act of worship, Hijab is test and trial for muslim women living in European countries and also in Pakistan elite class . Allah (SW) said:

“Do people think that they will be left [simply] to say: We believe! And they will not be put to the test?”

Be patient. It may be hard and tough living at a place where people have no concept and understanding of hijab but keep your faith in Allah, all hardships will fade out.

We always follow the western fashion and trends now let them follow ours.

    Masha Allah dear sister in islam. A very good and informative article. Just wanted to add that in belgium its the niqab that is banned not hijab. Isnt hijab and niqab different? Just wanted to understand better. In belgium and several european countries a woman cant hide her face but can cover her head and full body.
    May Allah protect all our muslims sisters in islam around the world ameen ameen ameen

    Hijab is a dignified dress code and a part of our cultural and religious values. I see many people, particularly “progressives” trying to delegitimize the value of the Hijab and modesty in our society. Much respect to the women who bravely hold onto their Muslim identity.
