25 years in hijab: Why I wear hijab

  • This year also marked 25 years since I started wearing Hijab! Yes, I realize that’s longer than some of you have been alive!
  • I was 11 when I started wearing hijab. No one forced me. My parents didn’t have to bribe me or encourage me to start. Something about covering myself for the sake of Allah just seemed so natural, how could I not wear hijab?
  • I guess since i’ve worn hijab for most of my life, I never bothered to count exactly how many years its been since I became an official “hijabi”. Wearing hijab has felt like a second skin to which I never gave any thought, until today.
  • People often ask if starting hijab at such a young age ever became an obstacle in pursuing my goals or ambitions? They wondered if I felt scared to go out in Hijab in NYC, post 9/11. My answer is always no.
