I am telling you a secret,
A secret of wearing hijab
Keep your mouth close and
Just know that
Hijab is not a symbol of oppression; it’s a symbol of obsession.
It’s a symbol of love, faith and honesty.
When a girl wears a hijab,
She is judged, threatened and abused.
Why? Why this should happen?
Whereas hijab is a symbol of beauty.
It’s a symbol of peace.
A girl sees a hijab as her beauty.
Beauty in faith,
Beauty in honesty,
Beauty in integrity,
Beauty in virtuousness.
Yes, all these quality are in ONE!
In one…and we call it hijab.
We choose to wear the beauty
And who are you to judge?
Hijab is like a small room
A believing woman hiding her beauty inside it,
Sees her beauty inside it.
Hijab is a symbol of beauty.
A symbol of beauty of a Muslimah (a Muslim woman)
Spends her days and nights obeying Allah
Wearing hijab to hide her beauty
From the evil eyes
And she does it only because she
Sees the beauty in hijab.
Those sisters who see the beauty in
They always wear it,
They always obey that symbol of beauty,
That symbol of decency,
That symbol of chastity.
Why the world should judge those
We, Muslimahs, just need a simple explanation,
Why can’t they see the beauties lying in
The hijab – a symbol of beauty-
Is only seen to those Muslims
Who truly see the beauty in it,
Who know what it really feels
Wearing a hijab and
We, Muslimahs, see the beauty in hijab,
The beauty of hijab is indescribable,
It is difficult to explain,
It needs to be felt, not written,
It means to be understood,
And It requires love,
Faith and honesty.
Hijab is a symbol of beauty,
We choose to wear that beauty
Every single day
Every single night
We choose to wear it
And we are proud of it!
Hijab is our choice!
Hijab is our pride!
Hijab is our beauty!
