The Sisterhood of the Traveling Hijab



UPDATE: The Sisterhood of the Traveling Hijab has a blog that is opened to all sisters. The blog is private, so if you'd like to join please send an email to heejabee@gmail.com or sisterhood.online@gmail.com The sisterhood is opened to all sisters regardless of where they live. You can participate in the game if you live in America, Europe, Asia or Africa! So, please email me if you're interested. The more, the merrier!

Do you want to be part of this game? Sisterhood of the traveling hijab. This is a way for us to stay connected and share something in common.

1- I will get a notebook/scrapbook
2- I will write about something I wanna share about me or where I live, or my family....+Put my city's postcard
3- I will buy a hijab online
4- I will send you the notebook+hijab
5-When you receive it,you can keep it for a week,write about something you wanna share, something that happened to you when you wore the hijab,.....
6- Wash the hijab, mail hijab+scrapbook to the next person on the list
7- Let's see how far the hijab will get and how many places this hijab will see.

Let me know if you're interested to be part of this project. I will create a separate blog about it if enough people are interested. We can all be in different parts of the world, this Hijab will be the symbol of our sisterhood. Our special sisterhood connection!

Rules:
1-The first time you receive the scrapbook, you will paste a postcard about your city.
2- You have to be willing to mail the scrapbook+hijab to the next person on the list regardless of where they are located.
3-You have to wash the hijab before sending it to the next person on the list
4. You have to wear the hijab that week
5. Only the people on the list can wear the hijab. You can't let your friends and/or family wear it if they are not on the list.

that is a pretty cool idea!

erin said...

Very interesting :) I'm in.... What kind of hijab do u have in mind? I find most square and al-amira too small (ie not covering enough), so maybe a shayla is best? As long as its big enough cus also some shayla are too short or not wide enough.

hijabee said...

Khadra,
Yeh that's what I thought too lol. Anyone is welcome to participate

Erin,
We will choose the hijab together, something that everyone can wear easily. After I create the other blog, our first task will be to choose a hijab that everyone likes. I'm fine with a Shayla:)

Yasmin said...

This is a great idea and a great way for all us sisters to connect on a different level. Im definitely gamed, so count me in. I think a shayla would be best too.

Um Bilal said...

I am really excited about this.
Let's get started.

Diali said...

Millz said...

NiDa said...

Lolz I wouldn't want to be the last sister to see the hijab after it has been washed for soooo many times :P !!! I'll be in if you put me on first haha -joking....

Empress Anisa,
Unless you're moving in the Moon, you will still get it inshAllah lol.

Nida,
U're funny, part of the idea is to actually see how the hijab progresses so if you get it first I think it will be kinda boring lol.

Aalya said...

I didn't join up for the traveling hijab but I cannot see that blog anymore...I was just wondering why not? If you are not participating can you not just see the 'progress' ?? Was looking forward to reading about the hijab's travels around the world

hijabee said...

Aalya,
The blog has gone private. I've had different posts where I asked people who wanted to still follow the blog to send me an email or put their email address on the comment section so I can add them to the list. The reason for the blog going private is because siters will post pictures of themselves wearing the hijab. As a precaution,we just don't want those pictures to be out in the open and be copied or distributed. So if you'd like to follow, again you're welcome just leave your email on the comment section or send it to me @ heejabee@gmail.com . Thank you!

Something to save the hijab going missing in the post is to make sure that everyone sends it recorded or trackable so it definatley gets to the next person safely insha allah.

Beauty-Queen said...

wow i wish i could participate :(

Girls' Islamic Classes' Teacher said...

SubhaanAllah, this is such a cute idea!

This is what should be done, keeping the identities of the sisters anon, you should take a photo of the hijab, scan the book, and publish it online so all of us can read it. And should ask each sister to sew a button on to the hijab to represent herself so everyone can keep count of the sisters and it can be pretty and unique!. hehe

What do you think? I'm so curious what everyone wrote and this way the book can always be kept safe, etc. =) Or each sis that gets it, can send the scan/photo of her post to you, online too.
JazakAllahu Khairun!
