Muslim Women

Although different forms of the hijab and head coverings are starting to make an appearance in fashion, let’s still remember the daily struggle, abuse, and discrimination Muslim women face on a regular basis because of their faith and what they stand for.

Hawzah News Agency – Bella Hadid, a Palestinian-American model, is no stranger to using social media to advocate for causes dear to her heart, and she recently posted a series of powerful Instagram posts in solidarity with hijab-wearing Muslim women, in which she spoke at length about the rights of women who choose to wear the hijab, the discrimination they face, and the need to put an end to it. She also told the story of Hoda, a young hijabi who was abused, and demanded justice for Hoda and other women who had been assaulted in the same way.

Her first post features seven Muslim ladies happy and dressed in vividly colored Jacquemus outfits. As contemporary fashion trends such as the balaclava gain popularity, Hadid encouraged the audience to “remember where the hijab resonated from and why it is so important to Muslim women worldwide”. She also added “Although different forms of the hijab and head coverings are starting to make an appearance in fashion, let’s still remember the daily struggle, abuse, and discrimination Muslim women face on a regular basis because of their faith and what they stand for”.

In her second post, she chastised those who question women’s abilities to play sports or study while wearing the hijab. The model emphasized that it is ludicrous for men to control women’s body-image decisions in the twenty-first century. “The egocentrics of a man to think for even for one second, that they have enough validity to make decisions for a woman in 2022, are not only laughable but actually sick in the head.” In addition, she urged nations such as France, India, Quebec, and Belgium, as well as any other country in the world that discriminates against Muslim women, to reconsider whatever decisions they have made or are considering making in the future about a body that is not their own. And ended the post with “it needs to stop”.

In her third post, she demanded justice for Hoda, a 17-year-old hijabi schoolgirl from Otago, New Zealand, who was assaulted and abused earlier this month and was hospitalized after three other students reportedly took her hijab off and beat her. “It makes me angry and sick to my stomach. we need to change this mindset of immediate judgement. Teach our friends, children, parents, families that wearing a hijab, being Muslim, or being anything other than white in general, does not equal being a threat or different than anyone else. Teach them to love before hate. To educate before judgement. To protect before bullying.” She captioned.

Bella Hadid is one of the most popular supermodels of her generation, and she is known for being outspoken on social media. She frequently wins the internet not just for her outstanding fashion sense, but also for her educational and awareness-raising postings. Hadid even stated in 2017 that she is a “proud Muslim” who stands up for her “Muslim sisters,” and this is clear as she has been quite vocal about Islamophobia and Palestinian rights as well.
