" The Muslim community to the non-Muslim probably looks rather uninviting and hostile nowadays. And that is mostly at the fault of the issues we have with one another over social media. The Mipsterz video blew up the internet due to it’s popularity as quickly as it was shot down due to it’s criticism. All those hijabis in that video have contributed to the Muslim communities in great ways that people obviously don’t know about, yet they’re so quick to judge. They have an identity, and yet, they’re modest in all categories. They inspire me and they’ve inspired many others, so learn to put aside your ignorance and understand these girls and what they do to reach out to our communities. The attack on hijab has gotten so old. Rather than encouraging girls to wear hijab, we shoot them down with negativity and undeserving hatred. It might not occur to people that hijab’s first form of modesty is that of character. And brothers, let me tell you five words that might be a shock to you regarding this matter: You don’t know the struggle… So it’s not an issue for you to discuss or have a say in because your identity as a Muslim man is nowhere near as difficult to maintain as that of a covered Muslim woman in America. I have been wearing hijab for 12 years and even I haven’t, and will never, get used to the daily struggle I endure. The stares, the whispers, the laughs that I get, I’ve even been harassed at my own job because of it. Especially being that I live in a town where there are almost no Muslims or diversity in general. I still struggle to wear hijab, but I go to sleep at night, renew my intentions, pick myself up by the boot straps and move forward because the struggle doesn’t get any easier. We need to stick together in our community and be encouraging. We need to look out for each other in a dignified and sincere manner. May Allah make it easier for all of us to see the good in others and put aside our ignorance to better ourselves and our communities. Ameen. "
