New Muslima Posted on Tue, Sep 12, 2006 23:20
I'm a new shahada and I am the only source of support for myself and my daughter, so I have to work or starve. The problem is I can not wear the hijab to work. I do not smoke or drink, or any of those things, but I know being uncovered must look really bad to people in my area. When I go to work, I'm uncovered, when I go to Masjid, I'm covered. Some Muslims in the community where I live won't even speak to me. I don't know what to do. What does one do in this situation?
