world hijab

February 1st, 2013,  marked the first annual World Hijab Day in recognition of millions of Muslim women who choose to wear the hijab and live a life of modesty.

WNYMuslims is very excited to be participating in the 2nd Annual ‘World Hijab Day’ this February 1st! With help from Buffalo ‘World Hijab Day’ Ambassador Jenece Gerber,  WNYMuslims is ecstatic to be planning great things for the event, inviting all to learn more about the Hijab and modesty as it ties into the Muslim faith!

We are inviting all non-Muslims and Muslim females who do not wear the hijab, to try a headscarf for the entire day of Saturday, February 1st, 2014. By doing so, we hope to facilitate discussion and education while dispelling myths and misconceptions regarding the hijab.

As a part of our special plans, we are asking for community members to donate new hijabs (headscarves) and hijab pins for our event! We are also looking for volunteers to help us with our planning!

For the exciting day WNYMuslims will have a table at the Walden Galleria with Hijabs, available for mall goers to try on the beautiful pieces and see how they look, while learning more about the beautiful faith and story behind the veil! From 10am-7pm!

All are welcomed to participate!! Join the Facebook event HERE!

Special thanks to Diamond hijab USA for donating some of their lovely pieces for the event!

Please call us at 716-923-4386, and/or email at wnymuslims@wnymuslims.org for more information, and visit www.WorldHijabDay.com for more on the initiative!
