Sign of the Times: Our Local Hijab Store
I’m out yesterday afternoon and my eye was caught by a new hamburger place. I love nothing more than a good burger, with a slice of cheddar cheese, preferably with purple onion, but any will do. So, I see this place, pull in and then notice on the sign, right below the hamburger place’s name is…the new Hijab Boutique in our community. Yup…a store specializing in the garments worn by observant Muslims who practice a stricter form of Islam. The Hijab refers, specifically, to the garment that covers a woman’s head and hair, but also to conservative clothing all but a woman’s hands. Here’s an article on it.
Well, there you have. Here in what could not be a more stereotypical middle class community in the middle of the Midwest, we have a Hijab store. Here are the pics:
