"As a woman, Islam tells me, I’m not here on display and my body is not for public consumption. I’m not to allow anyone to reduce me to an object. I am a soul, a mind, a servant of GOD. I don’t worship beauty standards, and don’t submit to fashion sense. My submission is to something higher. My worth is defined by the beauty of my soul, my heart, my moral character, and so when you look at me, that character is all you should see, NOT my body. With my veil I put my faith on display, rather than my beauty, because my value as a human being is defined by my relationship with God, and so I cover the irrelevant, and when you look at me, you view me only as what I am, a servant of the Creator."
