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.
