Lets begin with my hijab story, I wore hijab at 8 years old as I was "encouraged" by my father. I never really understood hijab until I started meeting other hijabi's in high school. I never really complained about it until I started getting attention from men. That pretty much made me think thaf hijab is pointless, well for me anyway. This attention was definately to do with lust and I've even had random men physically touch me astagfurallah. My hijab is pretty average - I wear maxi skirts a lot except for uni days when I have to run for the train etc. I've even been to the mosque in an abaya and no make up and have had non muslim men and muslim men approach me. So I am confused - whats the point of covering my hair if it's not working for me? We live in a society where "mandems" love hijabi's as they are "full of surprises". To be honest I only pray every week or month so hijab does nothing for me. Obviously it's meant to limit the attention but sometimes I just want to blend in and get no attention - lust or no lust! The only reason I probably still wear it is because of the respect I have for my parents and their "reputation". Any advice on how I can cling on to my hijab?
