World Hijab Day; People writes...

 

 

Majestically she walked pass

Romantically she was gazed at

Consciously she counted her steps

Intentionally not to cause chaos

Strong in Hijab she reminds herself.

 

Obeying her Lord's Commandments

Was never an issue to contend

From creatures who fail to be submissive

Just because they want to be attractive

Strong in Hijab she reminds herself.

 

What's the essence of life after all?

Am still going to wear the Hijab and all

It's never going to be a thing of choice

But a thing of no-choice in death after all

Strong in Hijab she reminds herself.

 

Since death doesn't differentiate the the old from young

Strong in Hijab I have to be from now

For I Don't know who is next

Strong in Hijab I have to be from now

For I know too well it isn’t an apparel of compulsion

Strong in Hijab she reminds herself.

STRONG IN HIJAB

 

Because I obey my Lord

I am strong in Hijab

Because I seek to please my Lord

I am strong in Hijab

Because I follow the pious women

I am strong in Hijab

Because my desires I suppress

I am strong in Hijab

Because I try to be my best

I am strong in Hijab

Though my society may stifle me

I am strong in Hijab

Because I try to Keep my faith

I am strong in Hijab

Because I stand for the right of my sisters’ too

I am strong in Hijab

Because we are Hijab Advocates

We are strong in Hijab

HIJAB: MY FREEDOM

 

To be liberated

Is to be free from longing eyes

That place me as an object of pleasure.

Hijab is my freedom!

 

I am free from the

Entangling webs of Shaytan.

That wish I accompany him

To the fire of regrets.

 

You say my dressing is barbaric,backward

But I wear not the leaves that unclad my nakedness.

What can be more modest than

The commanded modesty.

 

I am liberated for I am not

Subjected to the plague of civilization

That pull souls to the pit of disobedience.

Hijab is my success.

 

Hijab is my dignity, my uniqueness

I am different, made to stand out. Hijab

Grants me freedom in the righteous way

The armour that shields me from sins.
