#My Instagram Share#: My Hijab

Standard

Salam dear friends,

This is to share with you what I often post in my Instagram.

#Me-and-Hijab

#HijabToMe ⏩⏩⏩ I’m posting this to support @huffingtonpost initiative to introduce hijab, its diversity, and its beauty. Why do I wear hijab? Why am I so proud of wearing it? And what does it represent to me? Hijab is my way to show that I am a Muslim, and that I am proud to be. #Hijab is my way to show that modestey does not limit creativity, intelligence,  and confidence.  What really limits those is ignorance. My hijab is my way to fight against stereotypes. My hijab in an everyday reminder of who I am, and why I’m Muslim. It’s even a daily reminder of the reasons of my existence. Hijab is my way of showing my respect and love of my #religion and my #identity. Wearing hijab does not mean ’oppression’. On the contrary, it’s a very high/beautiful form of liberation. It’s part of my confidence and personality. I love wearing hijab. I love being a Muslim, and I will always be a proud to be one. Being a Muslim means that I respect my Islamic believes, values, and way of living. It also means that I respect/accept every other human in this earth, their believes, and ways of living. That’s what wearing hijab means to me. I don’t normally post my pictures,  but this is an exception, and it’s for a beautiful reason. The picture is a #tbt to my graduation day last #summer #2015. #me #being #muslim #muslimah #islam #morocco #marrakech #hijab #love #reading #books #bookstagram #photooftheday #photography #المغرب #اسلام #الحمدلله #women #حجاب #beauty #salam #kaoutar_chahbane

I will try to post more often insha’ALLAH, after finishing the exams and the endless tasks and presentations 😉 I have many posts that are already written, but for some unknown/known reasons, I was not able to post them.. It will happen, I promise, insha’ALLAH 🙂

Talk to you soon insha’ALLAH.

Happy New Hijri Year

Standard

Today is the first day of the new Hejri year.

We as Muslims celebrate this event every year in a nonspecific time. The Hijri year commemorates the Hijra, or emigration of  the prophet Muhammad peace be upon him, and his followers to the city of Medina in 622 CE.

This day is very special to all Muslims around the world. The Muslim year during which the Hijra occurred was designated the first year of the Islamic calendar. Ali suggested that it should begin from the date on which the Muslims migrated from Mecca to Madina. some suggested that the era should begin from the date of birth of Prophet Muhammad. After discussion, Ali’s suggestion was agreed to.
