Assalam! For my first blog I plan on going back to where it all started. Trust me when I say that no one including myself knew that I will start covering my hair at the age when I did. I belong to a religious family where each and every member of the family offers Namaz, recites Quran, basically adheres to the five pillars of Islam, Alhumdillilah. Dressing up was always a personal choice for us, we were never questioned for dressing a certain way. Since childhood we were narrated Hadiths, verses of Quran, we were taught what was right and wrong but it was for us to decide the preachings that we wanted to inculcate in our lives. This back story is to let you know that the decision to wear or not to wear a head scarf had to be my own and no one else’s.
