From the author of Amina‘s Voice, Under My Hijab is a celebration of the diversity amongst Muslim women. A young girl observes the different ways the women in her family wear the 🧕 in public and in their professional lives. A shout out to the illustrator Aaliya Jaleel, who illustrated this book while a student in college. Very impressive! 😮😍

Now this is a delightful book that celebrates the different ways Muslim woman choose to wear a hijab (including choosing not to wear one, like the author, except maybe certain situations). The art is bright and happy too. #bbrc #A2Z:U

A young girl moves through the day with the women of her family and her friends, showing them with their hijabs in public, and without them in private.

A note from the author at the end explains how the hijab is worn as an expression of faith for Muslim women, and how some women (like the author) choose not to wear hijab based on their interpretation of Islamic religious requirements.
