Lansing, MI

The Capitol Building

An Eid Celebration

SAM_2430For this Eid (Muslim holiday) I wanted to go for Maleficent meets Jon Snow. I ordered a grass green dress from Etsy and of course it didn’t fit. I freaked out. Then quickly ordered this lace one from F21. The crown, I got from Charming Charlie’s. My new fave accessories store.

SAM_2370A close-up of all of the fashionable goodness. Just simmer in it for a while.


I was the designated photographer for the day. I had to capture all the queens in their royal glory.

SAM_2443Here’s a close up of her turban styled by me. I loved her Sailor Moon inspired crown.

SAM_2389Lamiah’s color combo is appeasing to the eye. And check out the pearl belt detail.

SAM_2410I love playing around in turbans. I just made this one up.

SAM_2418My little sis also slayed in a mint and white color combo.

SAM_2391This photo screams confidence.

SAM_2402A close-up of her neck-piece. It’s all in the detail.

SAM_2421Shanni’s Arabian train was everything.

SAM_2445We all #Queen together.

SAM_2451Had to end the day with a few usies.

SAM_2457Hey there, beautiful.

Over pizza, a friend and I talked openly about hijab and sexism we’d experienced around it. 
Many people assumed that because I wear hijab it means I’m married. Hence, the idea of a woman wears hijab for a man and not herself or for God. 
She shared a story about going to a club with her hijab and being told that she shouldn’t be there by random Muslim men because she was hijabi. She bluntly replied, “Neither you or I should be in the club as Muslims.” Her story triggered me because I too had been through the same scenario. In addition to that I remember when my ex used to constantly tell me that I didn’t love God enough or I wasn’t Muslim because I doubted wearing hijab. But the chick he ended up going out with, during our marriage, was a non-hijabi 🤔 
My friend said something that resonated with me. “If it’s so easy to wear hijab, then why don’t men do it? They won’t. Because it makes them visible.” Being visibly Muslim, for some of us, isn’t easy. To wear or continue to wear hijab isn’t always easy. So, why are we so harsh on non-hijabis? 
When I went to California this summer, I decided that I was going to wear a bathing suit and ditch my hijab. For so long, I always wondered what it’d be like. Although, I felt guilty for showing my body as a Muslim I also felt empowered because I had the choice. And that I was very much so still Muslim whether I was covered or not. 
As a Muslim woman, I applaud you for wearing hijab, but I also understand if you aren’t there yet. Not all Muslims come in one size fits all. 
What are some common misconceptions about Muslim women that you’ve heard? What’s your take on hijabi vs non-hijabi? And anyone can chime in on this discussion ☕️
