What is World Hijab Day? What is the Hijab?

 World Hijab Day was founded by Nazma Khan and takes place on February 1st every year. World Hijab Day is an open invitation to both Muslims and non-Muslims to experience the hijab for a day. This is the fourth year of World Hijab Day and I think it’s a very important event to participate in. 

There have been mixed views about World Hijab Day but I really love the concept of it. Sometimes all you need is that courage to try it and you never know- it could change your life. So for Muslims who have always wanted to try it but never knew where to start, this could be a great chance for you. Non-Muslims can also experience the hijab for a day and really get a feel of what Muslim women go through on a daily basis. World Hijab Day doesn't just give you a feel of what Muslim women go through but it also removes any misconceptions people may have, regarding the hijab and Muslim women.

In my opinion I believe it’s a really good experience for everyone to try. If this sounds interesting then I encourage you to read ‘Invitation to Hijab for a Day’ on the World Hijab Day website. The post summaries what the hijab is, what World Hijab Day is all about and the post puts everything together really well and most importantly it’s an invitation to you all. 

What I decided to do
 As most of you know my blog is mainly focused around sharing and bring more awareness about real-life situations. So I decided to ask my Muslim friends if they would be interested in answering some questions about their experience with the hijab. I want to quickly add that the response I got was over-whelming and I did ask in the last minute so you can imagine how hectic it's been. I thought this would give knowledge to many of you who want to find more out about the hijab. I asked all of the ladies the same questions because I wanted to get their answers. All of the ladies are from all over the world so it gives you all a chance to really read about their journey and their experience. It also gives you a chance to compare their answers and see how different they all are from one another and how encouraging and positive they really are. 

I hope this gives you a real feel of what every Muslim women goes through and how unique we really all are from one another. Please do go and show all these amazing women your support and love because they all really do deserve it.

Let me know in the comments below what you think of World Hijab Day.



  1. I LOVE what you have done here Ramsha, I have just had a read through of all the posts and I have to say all the different perspectives and thoughts on it are incredible. Such a brilliant idea for you to raise awareness in a way that I don't believe has been done before, the way you have done it makes it so relevant, relatable and easily understandable for our generation, featuring different people we can connect with.

    Because so much of the time, people fear what they don't understand or have awareness about.

    I can honestly say I took something different away from each post. Thank you.
