Hafsa in Canada sent out an email reminding all of us to be proud of who we are and not to compromise our deen of Islam.
Oh yeah - and Hafsa is only 9 years old.
Here is her email to us (will you please put this on Facebook for Hafsa?):
My name is Hafsa and I am 9 years old. I go to a public school in Ontario, Canada.
One day, I went down the hall with my friends and saw a poster on the wall, it said, "Crazy Hair day", don't forget to make your hair crazy.
My friends got excited and started talking about how they were going to do their hair.(what type of make up, colour etc).
They asked me, if I was going to participate?
I said NO! I am a Muslim and won't take my hijab off.
On that day, everyone made their hair crazy, but I didn't.
One of my classmates said, "Aren't you upset for not participating in such a fun day?"
I said "No, I am proud to wear hijab and be a Muslim. "
Please remember....BE PROUD OF WHO YOU ARE AND MAINTAIN YOUR IDENTITY.
Hafsa, in Canada
Thank you, Hafsa.
