“I come from a strong Catholic background and at the beginning of this year, I accepted Islam as my religion. It is the true religion of God, this I know. I did…n’t wear hijab straight away but now I embrace my hijab because it shows the world that I love my Lord.
My hijab is not a burden, nor is it designed to offend or impress. It is a token of my faith. I wear it to please my Lord.
At first, it was different wearing hijab. I noticed people acted differently towards me. Some people were negative or hostile towards me, but not even they could make me remove my hijab. It is not them I am trying to please. In my hijab, I feel beautiful and protected.
Allahu Akbar (Allah is great)!” -Jordan from New Zealand
