Top 5 Weirdest Questions I’ve Been Asked as a Hijabi

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.
