WORLD HIJAB DAY 2016
Thank you to all the participants who attended World Hijab Day in Singapore and Tokyo on 31 Jan 2016. Alhamdulillah, a total of 160 participants had registered, 50 of whom were non-muslims and muslim converts.There were so many non-hijabi / non-Muslim participants and all were so eager to try on the hijab that at some point during the workshop session, there wasn’t a single head which remained uncovered. Insha’Allah, we hope that everyone has benefited from this event, and realize the true meaning of hijab: a vessel of Islamic modesty and submission to Allah.
We are deeply humbled and grateful for all the support for our very first event, and we ask for your forgiveness for any shortcomings during the course of organizing this event.
The organizers in Tokyo and Singapore would like to thank the kind sponsors who have generously provided hijabs and da’wah materials:
