Un'esperienza di fede e identità

An experience of faith and identity

Esselamu alaikum,

I'm one of the many [halaline] who follows you on social media, I'm here to tell my story regarding the decision to wear the veil. I put it on at 17 (last year). In reality, the idea of ​​putting it on had existed years before, but people in my family told me that it was too soon and that I would regret it , as I would later change my mind. But [Elhamdulillah] was not like that. Then, once the final decision was made, everyone was close to me and proud of this choice.

Going to school,

For the first few days everyone looked at me with a certain interest.

They asked me how it worked: who could see me without a veil and who couldn't? They also asked me if a certain color should be worn for the veil. And then there were those who asked rather questionable questions, but those are still there.

Despite this, I am very happy I made this decision . But there is only one thing that often makes me uncomfortable: many times I am unable to match outfits that are appropriate for school and the Islamic dress code. I wouldn't want to spend a lot on it, but I would still like to have a proper, yet beautiful style. But I know that in sha Allah [that is, if God wills] this will be created gradually. After all, I haven't even had the veil for a year.

Thank you so much for giving me this opportunity, and giving me a voice about it.

Esselamu alaikum ❤️
