Sports Hijabs!

Sports HijabsThese sports hijabs on the market have varying designs, but they agree on at least two things: Hijabs should not deter their wearers from playing sports, and Muslim women should go out and lead active lifestyles. There’s still considerable controversy surrounding hijabis in sport – the 2007 FIFA ban on hijabs (recently lifted) and the case of Saudi Arabian Judoka Wodjan Shahrkhani, who was almost banned from competing at the Olympics, are just two examples. Hopefully these well-designed, comfortable and safe hijabs will help to ease the transition to full acceptance of hijabi athletes by sporting bodies and associations. With that in mind, let’s get out there and get active! As the old saying goes, there’s no better time than the present. Source: Aquila Style Magazine
