A Hijabis Life & Times


My view of life as an African American Muslim. Striving to be more than my label suggests. Striving to be closer to Him, Allah(swt).
No filter needed • I needed an accessory so I showed a friend my scarf for EID and THIS is what she came up with. I πŸ’š it. Since that outfit did not pan out I will wear this arm candy’s compliment on Friday night to the sister’s EID dinner @busboysandpoets . Tap for deets. #nofilter #eid2014 #eidspam #armcandy #buylocal #supportsmallbusiness

Tap for deets. My photographers are away @ camp. #cuteandcovered #challengeaccepted #abayagang #wearitwell #ramadan

I need a new photographer • I made the decision to only wear abayas about 4 years ago. Being a plus sized muslimah it fit me well, hiding things that needed to stay hidden πŸ˜‰. Wearing an abaya is a way to be the most modest. I especially like to wear them to the masjid. Since I am working at the masjid this week this abaya is great for all the moving of tables, chairs and serving the believers. For #theabayachallenge tap the photo for deeds. #cuteandcovered #fashionablymodest #urbanhijab #pearldaisyltd

#TBT • my throwback is not just the visual but the emotional. January was THE first time I had ever seen the Kabah in real time. Not pictures, not paintings, not postcards… But standing near/next to/ and in it’s shadow. It’s like He(swt) was holding my heart….subhanallah. A heart that has been torn, broken, disregarded, ignored, made irrelevant… Just not loved. I found peace in this space, with all my fellow believers. Although outside this space brought pain… Right next to this… My heart was happy. #ummrah2014 #intheshadowofthekabah #weteyesfullheart #fullwithfaith #ksa #tawaaf
