I WAS WEARING HIJAB WHEN I WAS YOUNGER. AS I GOT OLDER I LET OTHERS INFLUENCE ME AND I TOOK IT OFF. I TOOK MY SHAHADA LAST YEAR AND IM HAPPY TO BE BACK IN MY ISLAMIC WEARS. AS A WOMAN WE NATURALLY WANT TO LOOK BEAUTIFUL, AND I FOUND BEAUTY IN MANY OF MY MUSLIM ATTIRE.I FEEL YOU DONT HAVE TO WEAR BLACK AND BLAND COLORS AS LONG AS YOU ARE COVERED, AND YOU ACT ACCORDING TO THE SHARIAH YOU ARE OK.

I think people like you are inspiring to other muslim women, and I wish I could be more like you. Inshallah Allah will give me the strengh to wear a hijab like you.

Thank you first for remaining true to the teachings of Islam despite the change of people's attitude towards you. Just remain so Allah 'the Almighty God' is with you no matter how you are.
