The Very Best of World Hijab Day #FreeInHijab

The Very Best of World Hijab Day #FreeInHijab

It’s another World Hijab Day! This year, founder’s have been asking hijabis to help in “Breaking Stereotypes, Shattering Boundaries” by sharing pictures of themselves with the hashtag #FreeInHijab.

Here are some of our very, very favorite contributions from around the world both breaking stereotypes and just doing enough by unapologetically being themselves.

“Like in everything in life you can choose to make your hijab a barrier or you can choose to let it free you. I don’t call myself a hijabi Basketball player or poet because I allow my skills to speak for me. This is how I’m free in my hijab. It is part of me but does not define me.”-Asma Elbadawi, Sudan & United Kingdom . . . 👉Please take a selfie holding a sign with the hashtag #FreeInHijab.

“When I started wearing the hijab at 10 years old, it wasn't all rainbows and butterflies. I got sarcastic comments from my friends and my relatives who think hijab is a sign of backwardness. They started telling me that I could not achieve anything in my life. I was prompted to cover my hair at the encouragement of my father, who said that he would be very proud of me if I did. I loved making my parents proud. When I entered into college, I was the only girl who was practicing hijab. I got bullied by several classmates; they often teased me in a mean way that I cover myself because I catch cold as I am sick. As I’ve grown older, my relationship with my hijab has changed. I started wearing it to make my parents proud, but it has since developed into an act that's far more special and divine. As time has passed, I started getting respect for my hijab. I have been working as an Assistant professor of mathematics for last 6 years but no one had ever told me to remove it because they also respect it.”-Fauzia Raza, India . . . . 👉Please take a selfie holding a sign with the hashtag #FreeInHijab.
