We all know that there are so many people out there who openly detest our Niqab but it’s a comfort to know that there are still a few people who actually respect it. Here are a few tweets I've got on our Twitter page from non-Muslims and it’s so great to know that non-Muslims encourage our Niqab too. May Allah guide them to Islam and bless them with goodness!
I just remembered a wonderful Niqab experience. It actually didn't happen to me- it happened to my sister but I was there to witness it. We were on our way to my Aunt’s house and there were a few security checkups on the way and our vehicle was stopped.
An army officer asked for the identity cards of all the passengers on the vehicle. While he was checking, he asked for my sister’s ID and after he noticed that she was a Niqabi, he put his hand over the place where my sister’s photograph was. Subhanallah!
What an amazing form of respect he displayed! I’m absolutely certain that that officer wasn't a Muslim and to know that he respected the Niqab and more importantly- the Niqabi… It’s really something worth saluting!
To all those non-Muslims out there who respect our Niqab, we respect you! I pray that Allah guides them to the light of Islam and I make a sincere prayer here that for that amazing show of respect from that army officer, may Allah guide him to Islam and bless his life with goodness!
