The Secret Hijabi


I would like nothing more than to tell you exactly who I am, but I have found that being so young, I don’t really know who I am yet. All I have right now are hopes and dreams of who I want to be. So with Allah (SWT)’s guidance I am still just a work in progress.

I often describe myself as a collection of odd and contradicting characteristics, and I feel that’s how best I can be described. I am still learning, I am still moving and with each day I change a little, I become better, I learn more, my mind opens more and by Allah’s mercy I grow closer to him, Alhamdulillah!

So here is what I can tell you for now, I am 23, I am a woman, I am a Muslim, I reverted/converted when I was 17, I am Sinhalese, I live in Sri Lanka and I adorn the hijab in secret (unknowingly to my parents and family). Hence the name the Secret Hijabi.

The purpose of this blog initially was for me to be able to reach out to other reverts, share my stories, learn from them, share my knowledge of Islam, and also to log in my day to day thoughts and experiences of what happens in my ‘secret’ life. I would say it’s still more or less the same, the only exception being it’s more about my thoughts now, less about teaching Islam. I don’t really have anyone to talk to about all the things that I go through, and sometimes, I believe, being anonymous helps share stories. So here I am, sharing my stories and welcoming yours.

Everything I write is an argument or discussion I have with myself, it is a reminder to myself first and foremost, and it comes from my heart, and in no way do I intend to offend anyone with what I say.

I am so happy to meet each and everyone of you, and I really hope you enjoy reading. Thank you for coming in to my life πŸ™‚
