First Time in Hijab
by Salimah

Before I took my Shahadah, I played with the idea of covering my head quite a bit.  I didnt know how to wrap so I just tried anyway.  My family (I lived with them at the time) did not know my intentions to become Muslim.  Mash'Allah.  I took a pashmina and wrapped it as best as I could, using youtube videos as a guide. Alhamdulillah!  I went to a local store and put the pashmina on in my truck and walked into the store.  Mash'Allah!  I noticed how people looked at me and I realized that it was not about the way I had wrapped, it was the fact that I was covered and sort of an oddity.  Alhamdulillah (a stranger!!!!).

From that point, I located a local garb shop and asked the sister that owns it to show me how to wrap and Alhamdulillah, she showed me!  From that point I have learned different styles.  I did not really like the I supplimented some of my wardrobe and used the maxi dresses that I had with cardigans to cover my arms.

I had to find my own sense of style within hijab...I was quite unsure at first, Mash'Allah...but now I would not know what to do without my hijab! Alhamdulillah!
