My name is Neelam Hakeem (@Neelam_) and I’ve always struggled with covering my hair because I’m obsessed with cute hair styles and I thought that covering it took away from fashionable looks I used to go for. My opinion changed drastically on #MuslimWomensDay as I trolled trough the hashtag becoming spellbound by the beautiful Muslim women and girls who slayed with extreme prejudice, modestly. It was at that moment that I decided to commit to modest fashion.
I also wanted to, as a black woman and M.G.T., to possibly make a difference like the girls I have seen that inspired me. So I decided, with the help of Allah, to try to push and promote my modesty and be an example like the women and girls who changed my opinion on modest fashion. By Allah’s Grace, all the love I’ve received from my sisters and new extended sisters of the faith has kept me striving to keep it up. I now know that you can be pleasing to Allah and pleasing to the eye at the same time. Modesty is real beauty!
My favorite inspirational Muslimahs are:
