im shy to reveal my name. i've got a question. I've been wondering why you dont wear a hijab? :) you seem close to islam thus it would be appropriate maybe. Also, what is your nationaly if i may ask? cant see it from your face :)
I don’t know that the appearance of interest in a religion says much about a person’s relationship to hijab, much less the religion, or how they think in general, but I try to be close to Islam.
I try my best to take an evenhanded approach, I apply what I can with what I have, and I learn how to recognize my shortcomings. I fail a lot, and sometimes I feel as if I’ve accomplished something. I’ll admit that I have often directed my focus to other areas where I found improvements to be most pressing, and I’m honestly not always sure that I have given certain things enough thought.
The straight answer is that I don’t feel as if its the right time given constant shifts in my thought, understanding and relationship to Islam. I feel secure in my feelings about the faith, though I do not feel secure in all of my reasoning and what I know. I realize that some people don’t agree with my outlook, but I can’t really apply their context to my own and vice versa. Despite the community-oriented aspects of Islam, I still view a great part of religion to be deeply personal. With all of that said, I really respect, admire and will always protect a woman’s decision to wear physical hijab.
Also, I’m American, but half Moroccan. Its difficult to determine nationality from an icon.
