So i shopping in the gap and little boy seen me and would not stop looking....i mean he was following me lol if he wasnt a little boy i would call the police lol

But i knew why he was looking b/c my face was covered so i jus waved at him (so he would no im not a ghost) and kept shopping

 Well why did i do I feel this tug on my overgarment and its the little boy with his mom...oh boyyyyyy

So his mother says my son would like to ask u a question (mashallah she was very nice), of course he was very shy and acted as if he didnt want to but he mom said go ahead ask her

So the little boy said with his hand over his mouth, Why is your face covered? So i stated b/c i want to be modest.

Whats i forgot i was talking to someone that was about 6 then i said because i dont want men to see my pretty face...his mother laughed

So then the little boy said "im not a man can i see"......lmbo

since we were towards the back of the store....i got low behind the racks and lifted my Niqab up...well this little boy said..."ooollll chocolate"......

me and his mother both laughed so hard....i then said to the mother i guess you know what your daughter in law  will look like...she laughed so hard

But the best thing this little boy said was....don't worry i can keep a secret, i seen your face. i wont tell anyone lol

subhan Allah who made us all born Muslims.  Mysha Allah.  What a beautiful way to be introduced to the Muslim woman.  This little boy will grow up knowing that under that nicab.. lives a beautiful creation of God.  alhamdulliahir Rabbil Alamin.  May Allah reward you sister for teaching him this valuable valuable lesson. May Allah guide him to Islam with full knowledge and his Mother too.

Bet she got a surprise of her life. LOLLOLLOLLOLLLLLOL

Mashaa allah what a cute story... He sound so cute.


I was at a place with my sister friends....we were eating out. and 3 of us wore Niqab... (myself included)... We lifted up our niqabs to eat and the waiter said OOoo I see why they wear those things... (We looked at each other, puzzled and think he was going to show his butt) his friend said what..why... he said they are pretty, I thought only ugly Muslims wore that thing... but they are really cute.... we put the niqabs back down and ate with them down....

Although I do not wear it anymore some/many people have misconceptions about the niqab.  TY for sharing your story about that sweet lil boy.... what a sweet heart he was...
