Assalamo alaikum. I wanted to share what inspired me to wear the hijab. Although for me, the hijab was actually a reason I converted to Islam! 

I was raised in what I considered to be a conservative catholic home and had always attended catholic schools. So I didn’t know much outside the catholic faith and I thought I was happy. I went off to uni and it wasn’t until then I started questioning everything. I met a group of Muslim ladies, who I thought were just beautiful Masha allah with their hijabs. They had this shyness to them which I had never seen in ladies before. I got to know these ladies and the more I know about the hijab, the more I was convinced Islam was for me alhamdulilah. I converted to Islam in January, and in February I started wearing hijab alhamdulilah.
