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).
Back on the grind• I took #theabayachallenge to work. I wear them all the time @ work. My boss actually rewrote the dress code language in our handbook to include religious and or ethnic dress. 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 😉. 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

Emotional overload

Last night I believe I emotionally vomited when I should have been sleep. I crude about the pain and hurt that still resides in the recesses of my brushed heart and ego. But as I cried I also pulled up the wall. The wall that is thick enough to protect me from any man’s bull shit. The wall that will keep me single and celebrate… Constantly wanting to be held and protected as a man should do for a woman. The tears and the wall seems to walk hand and hand right now.

TBT• 5 months ago I took a trip that has solidified my faith. I walked where He(saws) walked, I prayed where He(saws) prayed….. I was in the hands of my Lord.  I will never forget the experience. The knowledge I received, the friends I obtained and the sins I erased (In-sha Allah) are immeasurable. #umrah2014 #medinamyheart #stillbeaming #ohthelove
