I finally migrated

I finally migrated on 1st January 2012 @ 7 Safar 1433 Hijrah; Sunday.  I was longing to migrate for quite some time yet i couldn't find the strength nor the perfect reason.  It was a scary yet exhilarating decision to make.  Scary in the sense that my hijab has become my identity.  Whether i can continue for the rest of my life to hold on to this identity.  I hope i have the strength and faith for it.

At the office, i'm at ease wearing pants and skirts, back in the old days...i wore only skirts.  In fact i was the only Muslim woman who wore above knee length skirts. Bermuda and shorts are my weekend attire.

I remembered the look that my mother in law gave me when we first met.  Funny betul but those were the days.  I was in my low cut tight hugging tees with a three quarter jeans. And she was like eyeeing me from the side of her eyes.. up and down..Hehehe..

Funny how the transformation gives me a clearer idea of what people think about me all those years..

Casual onlookers will give me a nod, some said "Alhamdullilah".  
Some congrats, full of handshakes and i even got huggies :-).  
Tiba-tiba terasa besarnya rahmat hari tu.  
May Allah bless them all.

Well a few have some says...

  • "Nasha, i expected you to be the last one to wear tudung!"...Emm...stunted, teruk sangat ke aku ni
  • "Nasha, you're such an open minded person, how come you change?"...I cover only my head, my brain is still the same. [Wow, is this the way how most people think about people who wear hijab? I need to change this perspective!]
  • "Did your husband you force you to wear?"...Nope, decision made by myself, for myself
  • "You look baiknya!" Wow, was i that bad all those years? Was i that wild?

Its been 28 days and and I don't regret my decision.  It's odd when you get older other people's opinion of you don't matter much anymore. 

I believe that what comes from Him can be nothing less than the best.
