Great article about wearing niqab in the US.

Don’t read the comments….they are headache inducing for the most part.

I don’t wear niqab but I think it is a wonderful thing for those who choose to wear it. I wear hijab to feel closer to Allah (swt) so I can understand how spirituality can influence dress.

One of my favorite place is a community on LJ called modest_style. It’s a place where women of all manner of belief and come together to talk about dressing modestly. Yes, there are secular and even atheist women who dress modestly, some dress not much differently from me. Some are even more conservative in dress than I am.
