“Why did you start wearing hijab?” It’s a question I get often when meeting a Non-Muslim . I always tell people that I believe that every Mohajaba wears her hijab for various reasons. Some wear it to abide by the values of their family. For others they wear it as a coming of age symbol. For some it has become a fashionable trend and finally for a most, like myself it was simply just time. I remember, going into my mother’s room, opening her drawers of colourful hijabs and carefully placing them over my head. Of course I had no idea what to do with it after that but I just wanted to see what it might look like. I’d often put it on the same way I saw my mother do it and walk around the house.
