Going to the beach as a hijabi? Here’s a guide for everything you need! From burkinis to lounge reading to breathable hijabs, we’ve got you covered (pun intended)!
1. A sturdy beach bag and towel
Your beach towel can even double up as a prayer rug!
Don’t forget a kimono for lounging poolside!
3. A wide-rimmed sun hat
4. Sunscreen, SPF Lip Balm, and flip flops!
5. Seaside reading..
My weekend poolside reading – this book is so good I finished it in one afternoon – you MUST read it if you haven't already. It's simple yet so profound; here's one of my fave quotes: "People are afraid to pursue their most important dreams, because they feel they don't deserve them, or that they'll be unable to achieve them… It is said that people who are happy have God within them. "Everyone on earth has a treasure that awaits him," his heart said. "We, people's hearts, seldom say much about those treasures, because people no longer want to go in search of them. We speak of them only to children. Later, we simply let life proceed, in its own direction, toward its own fate. But unfortunately, very few follow the path laid out for them- the path to their Personal Legends, and to happiness. Most people see the world as a threatening place, and, because they do, the world turns out, indeed, to be a threatening place." #TheAlchemist #HHpicks #HHreads
6. A breathable hijab
You know it’s not a legit beach day without them!
8. And lastly, your choice of halal drink!
