This is a day declared for all women all over the world to celebrate her hijab.
Her modesty and dignity standing in unity with hijabi’s of the community.
With no fear we continue to declare….
This day, upholding our right, without a fight…..to wear it!
We have our voice, It is our choice!
It’s our freedom and protection, a step in the right direction.
Guarded like a precious jewel, a treasure beyond measure.
We were commanded by the Creator of the Heavens and the Earth to guard our modesty, which allows the women to be free.
It’s in the Torah and the Injil and also in the Qur’an.
Study the History from which it was spawned.
This is not about religion. This is not about a color or race.
We stand in solidarity all over the world and every place.
This is about respect and honor to Lord of all the worlds.
For all ladies and girls…..
respected women of the cloth.
As she should be going forth.
Those who oppose it have a problem with the commands of the Almighty.
Don’t frown, the hijab is our crown, and in it we’re free.
Hijab covering is our way of showing the Most High we obey…..
It is a command and we pray for those who don’t understand.
Some of us are forced to wear it. Some of us are forced to take it off.
I don’t know why, so many hating on the cloth.
Some of us are harrassed and hated and they violently grab.
But here in the Great United States of America New York City pink & pretty
We are Free in Hijab!
Come February 1st 2019, it will be a celebration, on NYC Hall steps 12noon – 1pm Jummah.
We are celebrating World Hijab Day once again.
Nazama Khan will be there in sha Allah along with Madinah Abdul-kareem….. who were harassed and victimized for their hijab…..to share their stories of why we need this day to stand in solidarity with eachother.
Our hijab has a meaning and a purpose.
We invite you to come join us on this day for a positive cause.
Some women are forced to wear hijab, we pray for her.
Some women are forced to take it off, we pray for her,
Some women are free and happy to wear their hijab and not be ridiculed or hated on for it.
But we still have a problem and we have a voice…it’s our choice, it is our dignity and modesty at stake here.
Respect our right to cover, respect our choice of protection.
As Madinah shares her story on World Hijab Day, you will see why she chose to not retaliate but rather educate.
In the USA today we are Free In Hijab!
Suggestion: if you can’t make it to the City Hall Steps, wear a pink Hijab in solidarity with us.
Thank you, and may you have a blessed day -Chaplain Jamillah
