My hijab protects me.
Dear america, I am not a terrorist.
Dear america, I am not oppressed.
Dear muslim men, I won’t submit
To what you think is appropriate
For me to do, as a woman
Dear muslim women, we need each other.
This is a sisterhood.
We have to stay strong.
To whom it may concern
God forbid I remove my hijab
But if i ever do, it’s not your place
To attack me
To act like I’m less
Because of it.
To everyone watching and reading
My hijab is a protection
My hijab is a symbol of faith
My hijab is an easy ID, I am a Muslim.
My hijab is a big part of who I am
But again, it does not define me.
