An idea to change the world
Posted on April 20 2018
That’s what it starts with. An idea to solve a problem that has been nagging me for a long time. Add a lot of determination, sleepless nights, amazing collaborations and lots of dua and I find myself here: one day before the launch of a business I created with my beautiful daughters.
I never imagined the outpour of support I have received from my family and the community, Alhamdullillah. Even support from outside the community! Or the amazing friendships that I have gained, and the many more awaiting, insha’Allah.
The most exciting part has been watching my 12-year-old daughter, Hana, blossom into such a Girl Boss and realize how much talent she has and how much of an impact she can (will) have on her fellow Girl Bosses, and insha’Allah, the world! Together, we have created Leena’s Hijabs.
Leena’s Hijabs empowers and inspires Muslim girls to celebrate their choice to wear the hijab. Our seasonal premium collections are crafted with the finest quality fabrics and highest attention to detail.
Working very hard behind the scenes to prepare for our launch, we introduce our first three collections, Alhamdulillah!!
Hana’s Prints Collection: Hana’s beautiful watercolour paintings have been printed on a modern jersey fabric, bringing to you a unique hijab unlike anything you have seen before. Girls will love how soft this material is and they can choose from either artwork print: pink floral or purple hearts. But really, why choose when you can own both?
Fancy Hijabs Collection: We have created a line of fancy hijabs made from a collection of glamorous materials, just in time for Ramadan and Eid! You can choose from gold textured fabrics to silver shimmer materials. These materials are so fancy, we have already received numerous requests to purchase them before we have even launched. We have a feeling these will be selling out quickly!
Casual Collection: This collection is the original line made up of the softest, easiest to wear, jersey hijabs. From the basic black and whites, to the popular blush and lavender, to unique pink camo prints.
Last but not least, my most favourite part of the collection: Customization. What other way to really make a hijab extra special for that extra special someone, than to customize the hijab with their name and/or special icon.
Go ahead, buy a hijab for that future Girl Boss in your life. Inspire her to reach her dreams. Empower her to choose to wear the hijab and be a leader in this world of followers. We ask Allah (SWT) to give us the strength to remain steadfast, our actions pure and may He bless this Ummah!
The online store officially launches on April 21 and you can purchase a Leena’s Hijab through the leenashijabs.com website or the @leenashijabs FB and IG shops.
