Sabr- to be patient, persistent, and persevering. As Muslims, through the Qur’an and Sunnah, we are taught the importance of being patient and having perseverance, even in moments of adversity. What better time to utilize these skills than during a global pandemic. Despite the chaos, turmoil, and uncertainty going on in the world today, remaining calm, having faith, and continuing to be strong is crucial. During difficult times, having sabr is key to overcoming hardships.
How will someone accomplish anything without perseverance? It’s not easy to persevere and stay patient, but with practice, embracing the true meaning of sabr, can become second nature. With all that is going on, remembering to persevere can be difficult for most.

Every business owner has a lot of priorities to juggle and managing how to balance all of these priorities is definitely an art form. If you follow me on social media, you know that not only do I own and manage Striving For Modesty, I am also the owner of Striving For Clarity and Flawless Academy. Alongside all of this, I recently joined the leadership team of an all-women travel company, Girls LOVE Travel as their Community Development Manager. On top of all of this, I still have my #1 job of being a wife and mother.
Happy World Hijab Day. World Hijab Day started as an initiative to encourage non-Muslim women to wear a headscarf for a day in solidarity with Muslim women. Since it's inception, many Muslimahs have used this day to share their stories behind why and how they embraced Islam. Below are links to a collection of stories from amazing Muslim women around the world.

It has been 9 years since I started observing hijab and Alhamdulilah, I can confidently say that that decision is a major reason for where I am in my life today. If there's one question that I am constantly asked, it's "Why do you cover your hair?"
The Striving For Modesty team has been working incessantly over the last few months to relaunch SFM and make it a modest clothing brand that we know you’ll love. We factored in our ideas and all of the reviews and opinions that you’ve given us.
