Well today I decided to take my journey one step further today and wore the hijab. Yes I was going to the mosque for the mid afternoon prayer and well to be respectful I decoded to would go attired properly. So my daughter and I dressed modestly and put on the hijab. Then we went to run a few errands on the way to the meting. Lets just say i was a bit surprised by a few of the reactions I got considering that I live in Toronto.
- bank teller- what is that garb you are wearing? and why? haven’t sen that on you before.
- my landlord who I bumped into- You are thinking of becoming what!
- Muslims sisters- smiles and greetings!
- a Muslim Brother who I had a conversation with after we were done talking: It is so cool to see you wearing it I wished more of the sisters did.
I will write more later about my experience at the mosque.
