Assalam’Alaikum ( السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته)
I want to share something funny and ignorant act that I faced because of my hijab.
Few days ago I had gone to the Doctors office with a friend, to get her MRI done. She wanted me to come inside with her, as she was scared and didn’t know what is going to take place.
So we went inside and the guy (Asian looking man maybe in his 30’s) asks me if I have any metals on my head!
Excuse me? Metals in my head? I laughed at him. He looked at me and I realized he was pointing at my hijab.
My friend, who is not doing hijab, responded that I don’t have any metal in my head.
I was so surprised about his ignorant and lack of knowledge. But I realized, maybe I am the first hijabi he has seen in his life!
