Today was the first time in a while that I’ve gone out in niqab. Since I lost my niqab like a week or so ago, I didn’t wanna go to the store to get another one because I would obviously have to go buy it.. without my niqab. I had to wait for my husband to go buy it for me. Alhamdulillah the brother who works in the store helped my husband pick out the one I wear. Anyway… so today I went to shoprite and walmart. I was anxious, but determined to wear my niqab into the stores. I just didn’t pay attention to people much, and when I felt myself getting nervous, I just talked to my daughter to distract myself. As we were getting out of the car to go into the grocery store, my daughter asked, “Why you don’t want people to see your face?” Lol.
Thuhr salat came in right as I found a parking spot in the walmart. Shaytan was whispering in my ear the whole ride there and my resolve was weakening, but after making du’a in salat and putting my trust in Allah, I flipped it down. Good day.
