Thorough article explaining from Qur'anic scripture and the original Arabic language, what is meant by Islam, hijab, and khimar. Photo from the article.
Another newbie Hijabi blogging at Muslima Maria. She writes: "When you put on a head scarf you are sort of forced to look at yourself without any of he masks you carry with you day to day, you are forced to look within - and I think that is the underlying reason why it is so hard to do." I think that is the way it is with anyone who is trying something like headcovering in the beginning.
