About

Welcome to Hijabi Life, a Muslim lifestyle blog about being Muslim in America, food, fashion, beauty, and parenting. As a Muslim American in social media, I felt like we have a void of Muslim lifestyle blogs. Where do I know how to accessorize my hijabs and where the good halal eats are?

On a more serious level, we need a forum to discuss things like Muslim marital issues, raising kids and most importantly, how to be a dignified Muslim in America.

I hope you enjoy reading my blog because it’s a love story about you: Muslims living in the U.S.

    • Thank you so much for your blog. I’m not Muslim but my boyfriend’s family is and I’m in the process of finding a gifts for them. I was feeling overwhelmed over purchasing hijabs online for them and knowing really where to start. Your blog has helped me so much… it’s candid, inspiring and wonderful resource. Many thanks πŸ™‚

  1. Salaam sister, wonderful blog! I noticed on your Instagram that you are also an attorney. I am a law student and am wondering how you are balancing hijab and the legal world. I would love to know as I hope to one day wear hijab as well. Thank you!

    • That is amazing! I don’t practice law any more, but I work as a social media/marketing professional. I have to say Alh, the hijab has never hindered my career path but I have faced some hurtful comments in the public sphere. But the positive comments always seem to outweigh the negative. I hope you keep in touch and are inspired to do great things. Remember, the hijab helps us move in the public realm so we can use our brains to help our communities iA. I make dua that we can all help our Ummah with our talents.

  2. Salaamualaikum, I’ve just started up a blog and just come across yours! it’s exactly what I thought was missing over here in the UK and Insha’Allah I hope to be as successful as you in discussing trends and fashion, but all whilst keeping the faith of Islam at light!

    • Ameen! I am so happy to see you trying to fill a void in this Ummah with your blog. May Allah (swt) bless your efforts sweetie. We need more girls like you iA!

    • Thank you Saman! I will definitely check out your Facebook page and see if there is anything I can buy for an upcoming wedding inshallah. πŸ™‚

  3. Mashaallah, I love your blog! I’d love to collaborate with you on a blog feature- I am part of an up-and-coming project entitled Coming of Faith. The project is very unique, as we ask real American Muslim women to tell us about their own personal struggles and realizations in coming to their understanding of the Islamic faith. It’s linked in my username, but I’d love to hear from you on whether you’d be interested in either sharing your story of faith or a potential collaboration! πŸ™‚ much love!

    • Thank you Laila! I will email you right now as I would love to share my experience for this project. πŸ™‚ Thank you for reading this blog. I sincerely appreciate everyone who takes the time to read and comment.

  4. Assalamu-Alaikum!

    You have done a lovely job with your blog…love every detail that comes together to present what you feel passionate about. I also love that you’re taking a stance for all the muslimahs out there. Currently, I am only a student and so I don’t share parenting or love and marriage topics however, it still is enjoyable to read your posts in those sections–but I can relate to other contributions you make i.e. beauty, fashion, etc! I also am a blogger and infact a newbie blogger… would love if you could check out my website, fusionsofelegance.blogspot.com and would love a follow/shoutout on ig @mehakr93! πŸ™‚

    • Salaams my lovely! I have gone on IG and given you a little shout out. I hope you like it. Thanks for reading πŸ™‚

    • Wsalaam my lovely! I most definitely will check it out and add you to the blogs I follow. Sorry for the delayed response. Thank you for the kind words!

  7. Asalaamu Alaikom Sister,

    I believe you mentioned that you have completed Hajj? If so, could you give tips/recommendations for those going this year, insha’Allah! That would be great πŸ™‚

    JazakhAllah πŸ™‚

    • Wsalaam my lovely! Mashallah you are going on a very special voyage indeed. I intended to complete Hajj during my first year of marriage, but Allah (swt) is the best of planners. I was unable to go because I got pregnant and would have been in my first trimester if I had gone. That being said, there are countless resources for anyone who is blessed to go on Hajj. My first recommendation is to take weekend Hajj classes. This option may even be offered in your travel package. Here is another great resource for you too: http://productivemuslim.com/tips-for-a-productive-hajj/ Please don’t forget to make dua for all of us who haven’t been invited by Allah (swt) to go yet! I wish you the very best inshallah. ❀
