The Hijab Threat

Salaams and Salutations Ladies,
I've been busy..too busy to blog. But know that I'm in the process of taking pics of garments I've already purchased. Waiting for new ones to come in the mail. I am also buying for the Beautiful Ummah Trunk Show. Lot of nice hijabs from the US and Malaysia will be coming in soon (excited!!)

While I was enjoying YouTube hijab tutorials and skimming over hijab blogs I came across this video on Hijab Style. The post there was about Rabia Z's documentary about the Hijab Threat. Hijab Threat?? (looks around like: who me?)

Evidentally people/the world is afraid of HIJAB? A 45 inch piece of cloth is scaring millions..hmm, that's a pretty powerful piece of cloth!! I mean there is the hijab ban in France and in Turkey. Talk of hijab bans in other European countries. I never KNEW cloth could be so...intimidating.

After seeing this video I understand the reason why there are SOOO many hijab/Muslim fashion bloggers and YouTube Muslimah out there. We NEED to be here to combat the crap others are throwing around about hijab/Muslims/Islam. UmmAminahHonest and I are working with Modern Mary on a collaboration event as we speak! Basically helping Muslimah's with the complete style: modest fashion, hijab and make up/skin car (for those who wear no make up).

So I can't WAIT to see Rabia Z's documentary. I'm sure I'll laugh, I'll cry and I'll shout a TAKBIR! or two.

B Beautiful,
Umm Amirah
