New Hijabi In Da House!

I recently met Zainab Rizvi at the HijabiTopia Iftar dinner. She is a friend of Nicole's. At the dinner, Zainab informed us that it was her second day to wear hijab!!!

We could not believe it because she came in with the most stylish hijabi outfit and looked absolutely amazing!

And what is more amazing is that Zainab courageously made the decision to start wearing hijab at an important stage of her life. She recently got engaged! Most girls would be scared to make such a big change in their lives when they are getting ready for one of the most important days of their lives. Zainab said she was considering it for a long time. Like many Muslim girls, she would wear it to the mosque or prayer and would feel really guilty taking it off afterwards.

She says "my mom asked me what I was waiting for and I couldn't come up with one single good enough reason".

All of us at HijabiTopia are excited to have Zainab join us in this journey.

Let's give a shout out to Zainab... Zai-na-bbbb we are so proud of you for starting to wear hijab. We think you are a Beautiful Hijabi and look forward to featuring you on HijabiTopia!

Congratulations to Zainab!!! You Did It!!!
