“In 2019 I still remember, during Ramadan, I used to see a grave in my dreams. I would see a burning, blazing grave and I could see myself in the grave. I didn’t see the empty grave, I saw myself,” she said in a video on Instagram.
“I felt this is the sign that God is giving me that if I don’t change, this is what my end is. That got me a little anxiety. I still remember the changes that were happening. I would listen to all the motivational Islamic speeches and one night I remember reading something so beautiful.”
Sana began to cry as she added, “The message said that you don’t want your last day to be your first day of wearing hijab. That is something that touched me so deep.”
She further said, “The next morning I remember I woke up and that was my birthday. I had bought a lot of scarves before. I put the cap inside, wore the scarf and I told myself I will never remove this ever again.”
Sana and husband Anas Sayied recently went on hajj together.
She expressed her happiness on going on the religious trip as a changed person and said, “I am happy that now that I am changed, I would not go back and remove my abaya (hijab) and throw it away.”
Before this hajj, Khan had completed her three Umrahs post her marriage. She recently launched her own YouTube channel called Sana Khan Vlogs to document her travels.
