Why hijabis are strong

Each day we have to face discrimination, stares, and bold comments thrown at us. We have to stand our ground yet maintain modesty. We have to fight for ourselves and for each other.

I personally have not been a victim yet because of my hijab. But the world keeps getting worse and worse as the days go by.

We have to be strong for ourselves , for each other , and for the little girls looking up to us. You don’t want the little girls to see us hating to put on a hijab or niqab. You don’t want the little girls to hear us saying we wish we didn’t have to wear it.

We wear it for one purpose and only one purpose: to please our Creator. None of us are perfect. Some Muslim sisters don’t even wear hijab for fear of being harassed. If someone makes you feel ashamed because of your religion, you’re only letting them win by not wearing hijab. Don’t ever be afraid to wear the hijab or niqab because of someone (who’s irrelevant). You wear it because you serve a wonderful and merciful God.

Islamophobic.

Islamophobia is something I’d never dreamt would happen. Why are people afraid of a religion that they know nothing about? Donald Trump has made it publicly “OK” to bash anyone of the Islamic faith, or anyone Arab for that matter- religious or not! Why is this happening? Why aren’t people taking the time to research and discover for themselves what this beautiful religion is all about?
Christianity and Islam are both Abrahamic religions. The Quran and Bible share similar stories and some of the same people appear in both. Abraham, Moses, Noah, Adam, Jesus, etc. are all found in both books. Shocking, right? Or did you really think every other word in the Quran is ‘bomb’?
Jesus is mentioned more times in the Quran than Muhammad. Muhammad is not mentioned in the Bible by name. He is being referred to, he was not born yet. Jesus basically says there will be one more Messenger after him to spread the word of God, and that is it. Muslims believe Muhammad is the final messenger, Jesus preceding him.
Mary has a whole chapter named after her in the Quran. Mary, the mother of Jesus. We Muslims believe she is one of the best of women to walk the Earth. Why isn’t there a chapter in the Bible dedicated to her? Hmm.
The Bible has several different “authors” and was written down many years after the events took place. How do we know things weren’t left out, added in, or even exaggerated? The Bible has been changed many times throughout history. If this is the true word of God, what human feels so entitled that they can change the word of God? The Quran has never been altered since it’s revelation 1400+ years ago.
Christians worship Jesus. For what reason? They believe he is God, and also the son of God… crazy concept right? The father, son, and holy spirit are all one person, so 1+1+1=1 . Jesus has never said, “I am God, you must worship me”. Jesus can not be God. Jesus was born, he had to eat, sleep, drink… all of the humanly functions that God does not have to do. All the powers Jesus had, came from God. If God had to eat, it would mean he is a human like us, which he is definitely not. God is something our minds can not comprehend. God doesn’t need to drink to re-hydrate, he doesn’t need to sleep, he doesn’t need to shower, or anything that us humans have to do. God has no partners, he has no one that is comparable at all.
Islam teaches peace, modesty, respect, discipline, charity, sacrifice. It does NOT teach us to bomb each other, like what the media portrays. Please, research credible sources and discover for yourself what this beautiful religion is all about, and my God guide you to the straight path.
