World Hijab Day / Dia Mundial del Hijab

  • IslamInSpanish Centro Islamico 6200 Highway 6 South Suite 101 Houston, TX, 77083 United States (map)

Assalam Alaikum / Peace Be Upon You All!!

IslamInSpanish Centro Islamico is excited to particiate in the 2017 World Hijab Day. For many people, the hijab is a symbol of oppression and segregation. By opening up new pathways to understanding, we hope to counteract some of the controversies surrounding why Muslim women choose to wear the hijab. 
This is an open invitation to both Muslim & non-Muslim to experience, understand and learn more about the hijab as we share our similarities. 

The evening will consist of the following: 
- Share verses from our holy scripts on modesty & hijab
- Share our Hijab experiences
- Non Muslims Women Try Hijabs for the 1st time
- Light snacks and refreshments (please feel freel to bring something to share)

“World Hijab Day is not an act of worship but rather an effective way to create global awareness of the issue that is being attacked unfairly.It has achieved some great success already. Alhamdulillah.” - Mufti Ismail Menk

“I believe the concept of bringing attention to the modest attire that Islam encourages women to wear is something extremely positive and beneficial, especially in today’s fashion-obsessed and scantily-clad societies. Allah created us to love modesty, and modesty is a part of faith. Projects such as the ‘Word Hijab Day’ help us spread these values and showcase our religion in a positive manner.”- Dr. Yasir Qadhi 

We ask our Muslim Sisters to please brings a non Muslim guest to share the evening with us. Invite your neighbor, co-worker, friend, family. We are looking forward to an evening of #Sisterhood!
