In the Name of God بسم الله
Salam, I'm a convert and at first I really liked wearing hijab but recently I've started to hate it. There's so much pressure on sisters to observe perfect hijab and honestly I don't think I can do it. I hate that I'm made to feel like others that all I am is a sexual object and a temptation for men. I hear sisters saying that hijab for Allah but I just see it as something that keeps men happy. Why is it that men are free to dress how they want, talk how they want and do what they want with no pressure but if I raise my voice slightly I'm considered immodest? I feel really sad I wish I could be like Bibi Fatima (as) and Bibi Zainab (as) but I don't want to live my life to please men and feel oppressed. I don't know what to do, I really want to stop wearing it because its making me so sad.
