    Posted: 13 March 2011 at 11:46am
Salam, hello, I'm a non-Muslim female who has always been curious about Isalm. I'm wondering how it feels to wear the hijab, especially as a revert for the first time?. I'm trying to learn more about Islam, possibly with a view to reverting. I've read discussion about the hijab many times. I'm wondering how it feels to wear it?. How does it feel removing a part of oneself from public view? and did your social interactions change?. Thanks

Well it feels special that you feel you are not for general view to all ppl. I have been wearing it for 8 years now, I dont feel socially shut away.. and by time you will feel it isbecoming part of you....

hi.... when i was 9 my dad forced me to wear a scarf when i would go to school i hated this but had no choice otherwise my dad was going to beat me i would enter the gates of school imbaraced and the only muslim girl ppl stared at me this made me feel ashamed i was forced to wear it for three years later i got use to it it was like part o my flesh i began to love it just like that and whenever the school kids threatened to pull it off i would cry and feel so hurt i wore a trouser to school not a skirt so that was a start when i turned 13 i was told to wear hijaab so i wore it and whenever i would go out i felt shy but as the years went by again i got used to it now to hell with what everybody thinks i love my scarf and hijaab and i will wear it even if im the only one i just simply cannot live without it honestly hijaab makes me feel humble whenever im sad or upset even if im in the house i put on my hijaab and it makes me feel better its like lighting up a cigarette and then feeling at ease because of it ,,,, alot of my friends felt imbarassed when i would go out with them coz of my hijaab so i told them straight i dont like you anymore your not a true friend if you dont accept my hijaab and i ended alot of so called friendships, i got so use to hijaab i began feeling comfortable sleeping with it ,,,,

I love the Hijab!
 
Although about the first month wearing it it was not smooth sailing
Since i reverted to Islam when i was 18 in a western country people were "Shocked" i was covering myself up because i had a body and hair woman would "die" for.
haha...
 
Personally
The hijab make me comfortable, like i have Islam wrapped all around me.
It reminds me I am a muslim.
I have a husband and i dont want others looking at me. I love my husband. I love Islam.
My body is my business.
 
Socially
I hated it. Children looked at me, teens my age looked and laughed and pointed, middle aged men are the worst, staring, gawking, rude old men.
 
but then I think, they are looking at my hijab, not my hair, neck, shoulders nothing. and that made me happy, more confident.
 
Islam gives woman a VOICE, not a "body"

salam !!!!!
it really feels special and descent after ur used it , if one understands wat faith means then she wd nt go in for what the public wd say hence deen says or the quarn chap 24:31 states "and tell the believing women to lower their gaze and protect their private parts and not to show off their adornment except that which is apparent.........." really their is a reward for that in paradise. sometimes its not abt wat u feel but doing the right thing.


thanks !!!!!!

Asslamu Alaikum

Muslim women are enjoined to "draw their veils over their bosoms and not display their beauty" except in the presence of their husbands, other women, children, eunuchs and those men who are so closely related to them that they are not allowed to marry them

The term Hijab, includes not only dress and covering the body, but methods of behavior before members of the same and/or opposite sex, promoting privacy for females and prohibiting loose intermingling between males and females, and thereby encouraging modesty, decency, chastity and above all, respect and worship of Allah.
