Better Awareness. Greater Understanding. Peaceful World.
World Hijab Day is recognition of millions of Muslim women who choose to wear the hijab and live a life of modesty.
Naza Khan who bring up World Hijab Day aim to spread awareness and promote tolerance by inviting women (non-Hijabi Muslims/non-Muslims) to experience the hijab for one day.
That is the main Idea of World Hijab Day. So why would you want to celebrate it? I have some reasons why I would really love to.
- Celebrating the fact that you are Hijabi. Wear hijab for every single day, you could say this to yourself as reminder (no matter whatever reason or motivation the first time you wear hijab) “Alhamdulillah I wear hijab, I please Allah and I am precious woman because of that InshAllah” I would like to say that words to myself for my own encouragement which can bring me happiness and satisfaction for doing the right thing.
- Supporting our fellow Hijabi out there, we tell them “Hi Sister this is me, please keep doing this with pride, I’ve got your back, we all in the same boat! Just ignore them who say bad thing to you because of your hijab. May Allah reward your struggle.”
Why I said ignore them? Because they do not know or do not understand the great value of being Hijabi as we do, ignore them and do not blame them back. But when it is hard to keep silent and you do not want to ignore them who harassing us as Hijabi, then acknowledge them nicely;
Speak good or remain silent
- And for non-Hijabi sister, this is encouragement for them as we are welcome them and will never ever stop waiting for them to get Hidayat from Allah and joining us to wear hijab, let us say “It is okay Dear, wearing hijab is not a bad thing at all, don’t worry in fact it will give you peaceness, give you an identity and take you closer to paradise InshaAllah. I am here for you whenever you willing to put the hijab on I always ready to give you support and help”
- Create world awareness. It is extremely important that we are spread the beautiful Islam to the world to fight against islamophobic. We will show the world that we are Muslim and Muslima, we love peaceness, we wear hijab to please our God and there is no need for us to harm other non-Muslim.
That is what I’am thinking Sister, lets spread the beautiful Islam together, you and me, to make a peace world through many ways including World Hijab Day
