Ogni donna ha il diritto di scegliere

Every woman has the right to choose

Salam alaykum,

I have been wearing the veil for 13 years.

I came to Italy at the age of 9 and wore it when I finished high school. I hadn't succeeded before: I was afraid of the judgment of my classmates, of how it could change my life. I was really afraid of the judgment of others.

At the age of 16 I had become very close to Allah and I had the desire to wear it, but as I said, I was afraid of turning my life upside down , that my choice could influence my friendships, the judgment of my teachers and my classmates.

So I had to wait 2 years before wearing it. I swear to you that those 2 years were endless, because I really was very close to Allah . I applied many ʿibādāt and when I went out without a veil I felt "naked", even though I always had my hair tied up and covering clothes. I didn't feel protected.

And here I open a parenthesis:

NEVER judge Muslim girls without ḥijāb! Because we cannot know their intentions, their path, and what their hearts hide.

Coming back to us, as soon as I finally took the state exam, that same summer I put on the veil. Alhamdulillah!

Even though my father was against my choice, he didn't support my choice and that hurt me a lot . Because he should have been proud. But that's water under the bridge.

Obviously I'm proud of my choice. May Allah accept our intentions and actions.
