So I wore hijab to the pharmacy today, this was a different site than yesterday. I got a few compliments on how pretty I looked and I wondered did they think I was just making a fashion statement?? Eventually someone said to me " are you muslim?" and I said yes even though I think its inappropriate to ask me this. He then replied, I would have never know. This was such a wake up call to me and it made me feel horrible. I dont know exactly what he meant by it and he didnt say it mean or anything but still, he was surprised that I was a muslim. This made me think a lot about my behavior and how I carry myself. Am I carrying myself like a muslimah even when I do not wear hijab? Perhaps thats the significance of wearing hijab because it makes you be in remembrance of Allah (s.w.t.) at all times. When I am in hijab I do carry myself in a different manner, I watch my words,what I watch on tv,or what music I listen, I watch myself to avoid backbitting and participating in useless gossip and more. I am seriously having a rude awakening this week. I can admit that when I am in hijab I am a overall better person. Alhamdullilah the light bulb has finally turned on!!! However sisters, this doesnt mean I dont miss my hair sometimes. I think the key to being a successful hijabi is having confidence. Something I didnt have before when I wore hijab and it was like a hardship on me. But this week I have woken up excited about wearing hijab and I even ordered $100 worth of scarves and pins and undercaps from a store called star scarves?? I will post more about that later. I feel so different this week.Proud to be muslim,proud to have on my scarf. This is the firs time I have felt this. Make duas for me that this continues and I continue to wear hijab. Salaams

WOW so salaams everyone, its has been way to long.I will quickly update you with whats going on with me. I went to NYC and had a blast. We went to a bunch of cool( but expensive :( ) restaurants and I did a bunch of shopping. I was gone for an entire week and I stayed in 3 different hotels ( long story). I had soo much but at the end of the trip I was ready to come home. Too much living out of a suitcase! I came back to cold weather and lots of school and it was hard to deal with so I have been down.....but alhamdullilah, the sun has been out all week and the weather has been beautiful and my mood has improved substantially. I need help increasing my deen which has been teetering and I need to read more quran and put more time into islam. I am sure this is what is lacking in my life. I feel soo much better when I am learning or listening quran and I have been so busy I have neglected my islamic studying. I had to wake up early this morning and let me tell you, losing that hour of sleep really kicked my butt!!! The good news is that now it will be light until about 730, so thats awesome. I wanted to go to tanning today but today went by so fast, I didnt get a chance,maybe tomorrow. I went to work and then came to my parents for dinner and now my mom is making brownies.....yummy....I will eat dessert, watch my sunday night tv shows and then drive home. I am tempted to sleep here because Iam soo tired but since I am soo tired I really want my comfy pillowtop mattress... I will see you soon...I cant wait to catch up with the blog world and sorry I havent been commenting. I love you all for the sake of Allah.
