A day in the pharmacy..Hijabi first day!!!!

A day in the pharmacy
A day in the pharmacy - by Inspired Muslimah on

This is pretty much what I wore to my internship at the pharmacy today...and I wore hijab too!!! Alhamdullilah today is the first day I ever wore it at my internship.My coworkers and patients were all nice, no smirks or comments or staring. I guess I assumed because I have a large jewish clientele that it may be problematic but everyone was pleasant. I made my intentions to wear it to work all week and when I woke up this morning I made my prayers and went to work. I am tired of being a coward. Alhamdullilah today was a nice day!!! Allah Akbar!! I hope tomorrow is just as nice. I am at a different site tomorrow so I will keep you guys posted with the details but today is the first day I wore hijab and I didnt feel forced it actually felt right...can I be on to something??? Time will tell. I am not sure what came over me but lately I have just wanted to start wearing it constantly. Make duas for me as you know I have struggled with this in the past. I downloaded the quran reader to my iphone and now in my idle time instead of surfing the web I try to read a few verses of quran...just to keep me in remembrance of Allah at all times. I guess I am tired of struggling with these things and maybe Allah is answering my prayers to make it easier on me. Alhamdullilah!

Oh hey I love this post! I'm a Pharmacy student too so that's a really cool thing to hear! How is the interneship going? That's a gorgeous set and in sha allah you will find it easier to wear hijab in the future. I'm finding it really hard right now mostly because it's being forced on me.. although he should know I'll wear hijab for God and not for him. Anyway it looks like you have great style and I'm sure the hijab will look totally cute on you!
