Smh everyone is focusing on the wrong thing in this video, make up? Really? She’s a hero but y’all wanna find something “wrong” just to push her down. Grow up please, she’s gorgeous mashallah and May Allah protect her.

Edit: Alhamdullilah, Thank you all for the likes and understanding what I mean. But please do not argue about stuff that we don’t need to bring up, let’s be open minded and respect each one and other.

An interesting story. I would like to know more about her mother. She sounds like a brave woman to divorce her husband and go to America permanently. That's a risky thing in any strongly religious community.

I literally think you're are an amazing young woman. I look up to you. As a westerner I admire your culture and religion and I wish I had more Hijabi friends to learn from. You ladies are amazing and beautiful and many of you completely empowered.

Am a muslim and i just get worried every single day about the muslim sisters in the west . because they are the target of the media and the culture of the west . From Africa and i will always do dua for all the muslim sisters . we care for u and we pray for u from Africa . And the war on islam makes them the most vulnerable .
