Zareen Shah is Zhijaab
My journey with the hijaab started around 2007, and I’ve never looked back since. What was meant to be another drive to work, actually was a close encounter with death. It was after that, that I simply couldn’t look at life the same way. I knew then, as I do now, that I could never truly appreciate my existence in this world without building a closer relationship with my Creator.
I found a lot of my answers in my life when I made the decision to put on the hijaab. My journey with the hijaab has made me more spiritual and it has become a constant reminder of what I should and should not do. That by no means, makes me the ‘ideal’ Muslimah. I have my own personal struggles that I deal with on a constant basis along with the temptations that I have fallen into and those that I have resisted from.
Nothing in life is Black and White. I am constantly evolving, learning, falling apart, rising, strengthening and softening through my journey in this Dunya.
I decided to start a blog to reach out to those that needed some inspiration, support, and comfort in their journey of wearing the hijaab and the daily struggles that came with it. I also wanted to show that being modest doesn’t have to be boring. I hope that my love for traveling, food, fashion, life and social issues will give you a better perspective into the life of a hijaabi.
