“I am 19 years’ old, I wear my scarf and niqab because I chose to. What people say has never stopped me because God’s affirmation is more important than anything else for me.
It is true that my outfit is black and thick, and I also know that I feel the heat more than anyone else, but my faith is so strong that I take the heat in this life for the sake of hell.
In the same way that people are free to wear what they want, it would make me happy if that freedom isn’t taken from me and my clothing is accepted.
What makes me sad is the fact that most of the criticism I get is by people of my own gender and they are women!”.
