Some things will never change in the world of the hijabi. That includes the never ending weird questions we’re asked. Here are 5 of the weirdest questions I’ve been asked as a hijabi:
- So uh … are you allowed to wear a hoodie on top of that?
Where do I even begin, of course I can. I literally wear a hoodie all the time and with the hood up! Granted, I rarely look as nice as this Muslim sister!
- Can you even get a tan with that thing on?
First off, it’s called a hijab. And trust me you can get a tan, there’s even the hijabi tan where your face is tan and the areas under the scarf are still pale.
- So do you have ears?
No, definitely no ears under there. Ha! Actually, I’m listening to a podcast as we speak. Definitely have ears, boo.
- So do you sleep with your hijab on?
While I do occasionally take naps in public with my scarf on, that’s definitely not the case at home.
- How do you listen to music with your scarf on? Can you even?
Haha! As someone who loves music, I live for my wireless headphones hidden under my hijab so I can always have music playing in the background.
All in all, hearing the questions people have about a hijabi’s life is always hilarious because they really don’t take into consideration that we’re basically all the same.
