Bismillah,

We Muslimah have many stories about hijab.  What is your point of view?

I was insulted, called a traitor, ridiculed, followed around, spat on, stared at.  So many things to say.

It identified me as a muslim to my sisters in Islaam.  We met, talked, got to know each other, or just smiled with a greeting glad to see someone else like us.  In the end I discovered that culture and racism are strong, and that the whites stick together, the paks, the indians, the malaysians et cetera.  Other people might have found true sisterhood, and that is wonderful.  But ours was confined to boundaries set by the cultural norms from each culture.  The hijab united us in small ways, but not cross-culturally enough to form the bonds of meaningful friendships, usually.

no e-mail.  sorry.

 

Al-Hamdulillah (From a Married Muslimah) La Howla Wa La Quwata Illa BiLLah - There is no Effort or Power except with Allah's Will.

Well in the country I live in, I look up to women who actually can go out in public with a hijab on.  In different states here, it's like Islam is one of the main religions.. but, in the other state, it's like being an alien or an outcast.

Assalamu alaikum,

Without email, you still can communicate each other via PM facility on this forum. It works just like webmail at yahoo etc, please try.

Wassalam,
Adji
