    In Jersey City, NJ, USA is right outside NY, BY and has thousands of Muslims. The women wear the hijab everywhere. No job can tell you not to wear any religious clothing. My Muslim friends are hip hop types, urban peeps with knowledge of music and art and sports. It's hard for me to even imagine a government telling people to remove their hijab! How infuriating. I'm an atheist married to a jew. My best friend is Christian and my husband's best friend is Muslim. So around here, we all get along. Peace to you !!!!!

    I just don't get the hashtag - unless it's meant to be ironic. You do a series where you meet specifically non-average Muslim women- travel to do so - and still call the series #YourAverageMuslim? They aren't even average for the UK and UK Muslims are not even close to average for the entire Muslim population. You're western, liberal - more British than Muslim. The "average" Muslim woman in the world would not be allowed to behave the way you do. There are many places in the world where a Muslim girl choosing to emulate you would likely suffer beatings or something very much worse for just being so generally disrespectful of Islam and Sharia.I just don't see how you can refer to yourself as an "average" Muslim based on how differently Islam is practiced by the majority of the Muslims in the world.

    "Social change"...define please. It sounds like you just want to change the world to suit you're dumb beliefs... paid for by the monster George Soros. You're freedoms come from western liberalism, they will go when Islam is the dominant culture. Choose one, we can't have both.

    'Muslim men' you're literally generazling all of us into the same category... its quite hypocrytical considering the main topic of conversation is the sterotyping of the Hijab! I for one couldn't care what you wear, that's between you and God. Having sisters growing up I've always respected how they wanted to dress as it's not my place to say whether they should be wearing Hijab or what not.

    Yes!!!! Mental health is so important!! I’m doing an Msc in Health Psychology and one of my projects is based on Women in prison. I’m hoping to work with post natal and pre natal depression, I think depression as a whole in the Muslim community is looked down at!

    One of my mum's cousins has been suffering from depression for 16 years. Everyones solution is the same pray more, read the Quran, go Ummrah all these religious solutions. The most stupidest one everyones says is someones done black magic on her or she's got a jinn inside her. It's so frustrating trying to argue with elders over this because they twist your words to make it seem like your saying something blasphemous. I 110% agree that mental health is completely overlooked in the Muslim community, awareness definitley needs to be raised.

    I completely understand what you mean by the club scenario and I 100% agree. That's what I was saying about it should 'stop you' from doing other things too such as dancing in public etc etc , the whole modest approach ygm , like there's a limit to everything as what you can and can't do

    So true Dina and fed up with being an « exception » because I’m a muslim mum of 4, wear hijab, dress cool, own my company, only European origin and I know I’m average to us but to some none muslims or to the media, I’m « an exception »

    I completely object to you describing advice given to someone to pray as BULLSHIT. Whilst I agree mental health issues are not discussed without a stigma in our communites (All communities, not solely muslims), and it's important to help such people in different ways rather than just spiritual guidance, your labelling of it as "..shit" was vulgar and extremely distasteful when referring to religous advice, and generalised and trivialised all such advice. A person should be helped physically emotionally spiritually and economically, and there were many better ways of you having clarified this. A note to keep in mind when referring to aspects of religion through your public platform in future. All the best.

    Well I dont really watch this girl but I keep getting her videos in my recommendation feed. So I guess I will give my 2 cents, 2 of some of principles of islam is Amr bil Mahroof ( Commanding the good): To call people to do good deeds and Nahi anul Munkar (Forbidding the evil): To stop people and call people away from evil deeds. So please women and men if someone tells you what you doing "haram" dont get offended give the man a benefit of doubt that he telling you that to give you advice as fellow muslim not as a misogynist and vice versa. You do you boo but dont get upset when someone tells you what you doing might be "haram" and "unislamic". As for people who calls others "haram-police" then what are you haram advocate?

    My friend and I break so many stereotypes, I am Christian and she is a Muslim Hijabi. I've been friend's with her only for a week but she's brought me back into my faith with God and it's so nice for me to have someone to talk to me about religion. I can ask her to pray for myself or people I know and she can ask me and I will. I really like being able to talk to someone about my faith and not have someone look at me like I'm crazy or blow it off like it's no big deal or get annoyed (when they bring it up)

    So true about mental health in the muslim community!! I know some people who are devoted muslims yet still suffer from mental health issues like anxiety. I believe prayer may help to not make it so severe, but it doesn't cure it. You'd still need professional help along side spirituality. I also think that the negative image of muslims doesn't make it any easier for muslim women especially those who wear hijab. Almost all the hijabis I know are scared and anxious when they go out. That alongside your personal issues is just such a big burden and can really weigh you down.

    As someone who suffers from anxiety praying 5 times a day isn’t necessarily a cure I would say it helps calm you down in the moment . Prayer always makes you feel peaceful but it isn’t the cure to mental health . People often always forget that God can answer your prayers and anything is possible with having faith in God. God has the power to cure our mental health .

I agree with you 100% on Mental Health in the Islamic community and as a student studying Psychology I'd love if yourself or anyone browsing the comments knew of someone/organisation that looks into working with people around this topic. I'd be happy to listen and take part in something that can change others lives.
