About

I’m 26, married, and have 3 beautiful children. I have been muslim for 7 years now alhamdulillah (all praises are due to Allah). I strive to implement the Qur’an and the sunnah of the Messanger Muhammad, sal Allahu alayhi wa salaam, in my everyday life, as it was understood by the salaf (pious predecessors).

This blog is about my everyday joys and struggles with wearing niqab (face veil). Enjoy!

  1. Asalamalakum!!!!! omg you are only 23, and already married with three kids! MashaAllah!!!!! so lucky you are. i just found your blog and love it! nice to meet you btw.

    • Firstly, I wear the niqab because it is pleasing to Allah and I want to do whatever I can to bring myself closer to Allah. Secondly, I feel wearing the niqab is a protection for me. From men looking at me lustfully or desiring me. I feel only my husband deserves to see my beauty. Thirdly, it imitates the modesty of the wives of the Prophet Muhammad s.a.w.

      • I understand all your points except one. Isn’t it sexist to assume that men will look lustfully at you, though? (Not intending to be rude, it’s just a little hurtful to me as a man for a woman to think she has to cover herself to get me to focus on her as a person). Further, if you can’t be dissuaded from this, don’t you think men will just sexualize your voice?

      • I don’t assume that every guy is looking at me in a lustful manner, but the reality is that some men do. Just as you lock your door at night, not thinking everyone is a burglar, but some people are and would take advantage of you not taking precautions to protect yourself.
        My voice is my voice, I can’t cover that. All I can do is not speak in a soft manner so as not to entice a man.
        I don’t cover myself just for the man because he has a moral obligation to lower his gaze, but if the man should try and look in an inappropriate manner, I know I’m covered and stopping this from happening. I wear niqab for ME. It gives me privacy, confidence, protects my dignity, and reminds me that I’m a symbol of Islam and should therefore represent my religion well. And as I said, all of these reasons are after the most important reason. I wear the niqab for the Pleasure of Allah.

  2. Excellent response! Only one comment I have to make: I don’t find a soft female voice sexy. In fact, just the opposite. I find that a strong confident female voice is the sexiest. Therefore, you’d better not meet me or someone like me (believe me, many men don’t actually want a pushover wife) because you might just entice us 🙂

  3. Assalamu’alaikum Sister,

    InshAllah may Allah SWT ease your quest on the path towards Jannah. Allhamdhulilah, i represent an organisation in Sri Lanka that publishes an Islamic Lifestyle magazine called the “Halal World”. InshAllah, just wanted to find out whether you would be interested in contributing to our magazine?

    JazakAllah Khairan

    • Wa alaykum salaam. I’m sorry it has taken me so long to respond. There was a hurricane in my stsate, so I had no power. I would love to contribute to your magazine.

      • Assalamu’alaikum Sister Kazemah, May Allah SWT protect the Ummah from His Wrath for indeed He is all knowing and all forgiving. InshAllah I hope you and your family is out of danger – May Allah SWT make it easy on all those who have suffered calamities. InshAllah I pray that all is back in order? would you have an email address or do correspond via your blog?

        Aakif

  4. Assalamu ‘alaykum,
    I’m glad to have come across this. Wearing the niqab can be challenging at times…but really, all it requires is a desire and commitment to please our Lord, Allah (subhanahu wa ta’alaa) and follow in the footsteps of the Prophet (salla Allahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) and his companions.

    Jazak Allahu Khayran! 🙂

  5. Asalam alaykum warahmatullah Kazeemah, How are you? Hope all is well. It’s been a while. Although we’ve never met, I truly love you for the sake of Allah. I found your blog a few months back and it was really refreshing to read your down to earth posts.

    InshaAllahu ta’ala a group of sisters would like to start on online lounge (blog + niqab shop) for niqabi sisters to find inspiration, encouragement and useful tips and advice on issues related to young muslim women who wear the niqab. (of course all sisters are welcome too). Right now were looking for sisters to interview as part of the inspirational niqabi section. The interview will be in a written format and you can choose to remain anonymous if you wish. We hope to have various articles and lifestyle blog type articles too inshaAllah

    I really hope you will be interested on hopping on board and it would be lovely to have you as part of our team. If you’re interested please send a response to hijab-rack@live.com
    I pray that Allah swt purifies our intentions and allows this to be for His pleasure alone. Ameen

    Lots of Love
    Team niqabie

  6. Salaam alaykum mashallah I love reading ur blogs
    It keeps me in high spirits
    I am 27yr married 4 kids lol I haven’t got any practising sisters I want to start practising but no help
    Any words of of hope
    Salm

    • Wa alaykum salaam. I’m sorry for responding so late. Thanx so much. That means a lot to me. Words of hope…. What gets me through anything is prayer and du’a. Allah is there when no one is and He’s always listening and knows your struggles like no other. Is there any masjid near you?

    • Wa alaykum salaam. I lovedddd it. Alhamdulillah, I saw a sister wearing this style and liked it so much, but didn’t know how to replicate it. Well, now I do. Thanx.

  7. Salaam alaikhoum. Insha Allah I hope to wear a full face covering (eyes included) niqaab soon, however I am confused. Where should the opaque material of the main niqaab cover too with regard to the size of any eye slit; as pictures I have seen appear to vary as to the size of the eye opening, not only from top to bottom but also from side to side? The object of any eye screening veils is to hide the eyes from unrelated men, but what takes precedence, the hiding of ones eyes or ones own vision – i.e. If two layers, for example, allows one too see ok, but still reveal a feint outline of ones eyes to non-mahram males, should one add an additional layer of veiling to remove this feint outline, even though this makes it harder for the wearer to see? I ask this as one person has said that when they wear their eye-screening veils down they find that their vision is cut by about 40%, but another one has said that the lady should only have 10% (or less) of her vision remaining when she veils her eyes?

    • Wa alaykum salaam. I’m sorry it has taken me so long to respond. I can only speak from what I personally like, which is I like the eye slit to go to the sides more because I find it gives me better vision and is more comfortable, as a small eye slit will sometimes pushes my eyebrows down and I feel the niqab in my eyes when I blink. I have worn the eye veil on occasion, but I will say it was hard to drive with it on. I hope this was helpful.
