When making the decision to wear the hijab for the first time, you must also remember that Satan will be with you every step of the way whispering his insinuations to make you resist wearing it altogether. Don’t let Satan win.
Make the Choice to Hijab
For a Muslim, choosing to wear the Islamic headscarf is sometimes an inner jihad one wages against herself. The perceptions of society, as well as close acquaintances, also weighs heavily in the decision making process. It’s no secret that the media often portrays Islam negatively and the hijab is a garment that immediately defines a woman as a Muslim. Many Muslim women have very real fears of not fitting in, being ridiculed in public or even being barred from attaining an education or finding a job.
The hijab has come under great ridicule in many parts of the world where it has been banned in countries like France, Spain and Belgium. Regardless of the controversy stewed by the enemies of Islam, the hijab is a beautiful garment and is a mercy from God Almighty. By making the choice to wear the hijab, you are representing the Islamic faith and serving as a beacon of light for other Muslim women who struggle with choosing to wear the hijab as well.
