Al hijab jamil (الحجاب جميل) : Hijab is beautiful
I’ve never experienced something bad wearing the hijab, although I’ve had people ask me why I cover my hair, and if it was my decision to wear it. These questions are not shocking to me, but I do know close friends, their mothers and other Muslim woman who have experienced discrimination. There is a pressure to be accepted by society. My hope with this project is to normalize the hijab. I want to share the hijab not only as an Islamic concept, but as a personal and cultural expression of identity.
