walaikum salaam,

Are these Muslim kids or non-Muslim kids? Hmmmm if they're non-Muslim kids like at your school I found the easiest way is to say "I like wearing it... Do you like wearing certain things? What's your favorite color?". Haha seriously it works because they usually don't have any questions after that. If I tell them "oh it's for my religion or modesty" they don't know what those things are and they just ask why... I dunno u could try different things and see what happens Wink

Jazak Allah Khayr for the response Sister Jannah -

The majority of students are non-muslim... Even when grown-ups ask I kind of stumble through the answer.. One time I told a man that I wore it so other Muslims can send their salams to me.. WTH?

A billion years ago when I was a saturday girl at a womens dress shop, a little girl came in with her dad and asked him, 'daddy why is that lady wearing that on her head?' he told her to ask me. I told her I because I was having a bad hair day, her dad laughed and she seemed to accept the reply.

I don't think you need to get heavy and meaningful about it.


I like Sr Jannahs reply, or you could say because its part of my religion...but that gets complicated.


And somedays, I do feel very glad I wear hijab, because when one does the school run at 7:30am one does not wish to spend several hours before hand sorting ones hair out!


Wassalaam

And when My servants question thee concerning Me, then surely I am nigh. I answer the prayer of the suppliant when he crieth unto Me. So let them hear My call and let them trust in Me, in order that they may be led aright. Surah 2  Verse 186

salam

can't you just say that "I wear it because I am Muslim" ?  is the word "Muslim" too big of a concept for the kids you teach?

take care
