I love your message about telling young people not to grow up too fast. I 100% agree with that! I am a little sad, though, that you kept saying you were "chunky" or that your cheeks were big. I think you were absolutely beautiful! Plus we can't always control those sorts of things, anyway. My sister has battled an eating disorder for years because she worried about how wide her face was. There are more important things! Easier said than felt, obviously. :)
It's quiet ironic how there are many people commenting and questioning on Dinas faith because of the attire she's wearing. The majority of you probably don't pray at all, go out or even worse and the funny thing is that it's the men having the audacity to complain. I know many Muslim girls that cover up for show and are a far cry from being a Muslim. You can clearly see the baggy clothes she wears, the scarf around her neck and her own style of hijab. We are in no position to judge. So sit back and watch or remove yourself.
@Rebecca Rahman pppp
What’s wrong with her attire? She looks modest?
I don't think they're questioning her faith her faith has nothing to do with wearing hijab (her not wearing a hijab for example makes her lacking in certain area yeah but it doesn't affect her faith) hijab should cover certain areas if it is not then it's not called hijab, you're just wearing modestly.. hijab should cover neck, all hair, and ears plus people shouldn't judge her but they're ought to advise her or at least acknowledge that this is not a hijab do other little girls when they decide to wear it they wear it correctly ..
Baggy clothes. Lol
Rebecca Rahman You literally just judged people’s praying habits loool hypocrite much??????
this is like the evolution of dina's hijab
geisiel cesar Islam is not evil, it’s beautiful. Sadly the people that follow it are evil.
The evolution: from correct hijab to turban to tak hijab off lol
She took the hijab of so you really should delete your comment
That was hilarious. I actually don't take a lot of pictures just to not be embarassed years later.
For me it's not fun, I found it embarrasing of how "stupid I was"
+Chadia Lamrani no one in the world looks like you , you are unique . your beautiful xxx 💏💟
Haha same 😅
Dina you're giving me hope 😂😩
Im 19 right now and so many people that I went to school with look so grown up now and look stylish with cool makeup and here I am looking like a 14/15 year old girl haha And even tho sometimes I get upset when I see pics of people my own age who look grown up and amazing, I know that one day I will shine!!♥ Haha but no seriously, I think everyone "upgrades" in there own time. Some in their teens, some in the twenties etc Just a matter of patience and finding yourself :)
Dear Dina,I am not muslim, I am a christian 21 year old girl but I am about to adopt a lot of the islamic faith as I am now reading the Qu'ran for the first time.And I understand exactly how you feel and how you react to these old pictures because in my oppinion it is normal to change a lot during the puberty and I went through a similar process.But what I really don't get is why half of the muslim people here just take note about 3 centimetres of hair shown on her forehead.Guys, she didn't feel comfortable back in these days, she had an eating disorder, she felt fat - and she wore her hijab in another way.And?Really, what is wrong with you muslim guys that you think you can judge any girl or woman on her hijab?Does hijab mean she has to wear boring clothes and feel uncomfortable?I read in the Qu'ran it is not allowed to judge because Allah forbids it - are you muslims so far about your own religion?Really I am thinking about saying Shahada, the more I read in the Qu'ran, the more it changes my personality and my faith.But when I think about wearing the hijab I already feel nervous and you know why?Because people like you!It is hard enough to wear this scarf in these times and that the western civilization judges hijabis as suppressed women or worse, so we really don't need more judgement from the Umma itself!Please think about it and be kind and understanding.We say in Austria: Clean your own house, before you start with another.Greetins from Austria
Sunna Followers Can you point me to the verse in Quran that says women must wear hijab? I have read the Quran and I don’t remember reading that.
"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life" John3:16
xX33ZoEe33Xx ı really admire people like you
xX33ZoEe33Xx You amazing well said.
Moral of the story: the glo up is real keep going everyone 😂
You are so beautiful mashallah😍
We are of the same generation. I took a lot of selfies for MySpace when I was 15/16. I'm always surprised when I see how grown up teenagers look these days!! Side note: I love how you're wearing your headscarf in this video. It looks really good :) x
Aww this video was so cute! For me, I went through a dying my hair bleach blonde phase and even tho when I look at the pics now I can see all the streaks where I couldn't reach my head. I feel sorta happy I went through my awkward stage and can be happy with who I am now. I do wonder in a few years time will my kids look at what I call 'Style' now and laugh at me!Silly that people are criticizing Dina for comments on how she said she was 'Chubby' regardless of what she was like or what happened. Its more important that she is happy now. Being able to say 'That was me' and 'This is me now' takes courage and Dina did it all while making us laugh!
This should be called a roast. Haha. You actually looked fine in 99% of the photos.
Thank you for sharing your pics. Its so refreshing to see how you looked in your 16\early 20s. I was a late bloomer too on make up and fashion but I'm so glad i allowed myself not to grow up too early x
I find it really discusting that at the end all comes to hijab and modesty. There are A LOT of other virtues that a girl can have and may be more important for Allah, like kindness, compasion, diligence and so on. But all MEN care is that the woman shows or not her body.
MsVio99 It has a lot of different names, but whether it's hijabi shaming or slut shaming, men in every part of the world attempt in some way to control what women wear and blame women for the bad sexual behavior of men.
MsVio99 thanks, finally someone says this
MsVio99 exactly. ❤️️
Such fun to watch! It's great to see how much your sense of style has evolved. You're a beautiful person Dina...because you don't take yourself serious. I'm the same way! If you saw my throwback photos..they would make you chucke too!
Dina you're amazing ! I'm a recent convert and you inspire me everyday. love your style and your personality thanks for sharing with us all sister. masha'allah 💞
Omg Dina I absolutely love this video. Honestly I know exactly what you mean about kids growing up too fast. I'm 23 now Alhamdulillah and I just learnt how to do my make up because it's so mainstream now. My youngest sister however is 19 and knows a lot more about fashion than I did. Lol. They don't know the struggle. The struggle !! Sigh. I miss it though. Love this video. Thank you xxx
I think every hijabi ever has that stage where they have the most voluminous and biggest hijab style that goes on for months until they realize it looks crazy! Guilty af
Ok And? HAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA my mom also told me not to do that but i always felt like it looked better that way. But looking back at it, i am so embarassing 😂😭😂
Nope. I always thought it was weird lol
I thought alot of the editorial photos were brilliant! My fave had to be the "Dina Tokio inspired by Chanel". And there was a Muslimah fashion designer who used a big turban style also. I forget her name.But I really liked the hijab style you started wearing whilst visiting Venice. InShaAllaah young women will take a page from your book and love themselves more.As a teenager you were confident and secure in yourself.You was "feelin yo-self".You had your own style and you wore it well. And that's a good thing.Thanks for the trip down your memory lane.P.S. Those straight brows you sportin in some of the pics are back.I call'em the Queen Amadala(Star Wars) brow.And they're making a comeback.
Loved this video.. Made me chuckle all the way through. I can definitely relate to this Dina and sure girls are growing up way too fast nowadays xx
This made me laugh so hard. I'm 34 now and when I look back on how I used to think and act as a teen I cringe sooo hard. My friend and 8 used to pose and take pictures of each other and thing we were straight outta vogue haha
thumbs up if you think dina should do an advice video for teens and not growing up too fast... or advice videos in general i think she would be great at it!
Lol292 Yeah I think they have issues.. not all inventors are white people and back in history, Muslims invented a LOT of things
+Excalibar Eclipse I think you need to check urself up, like seriously u have some serious issues.
I love this video and it's such a great idea! You're so right how we all go through this phase and its great to see how your creativity has progressed Amazing :)
thank you for talking about your self discovery of your race and identity in highschool I'm pakistani american and I went through a period in my third year of highschool where I was really faith oriented and proud of being muslim. Hearing about your talking experience was really nice so thank you!
Love this color scheme! The lip color brings it all together. I think I'm going to say that for every. single. video. Anyway, the Venice style was actually pretty cool, in my opinion.
Hey Dina, you should totally do a reactreating old pictures/looks/outfits, it would be so cool! xx
I love that you did this it's completely adorable. I must say though, I have found none of your pictures embarrassing. My pictures on the other hand, GOOD LORD lol love you Dina!
You're awesome Dina. I'm almost 22 years old and when I look at pictures in middle school and even high school I ask myself what the hell was I smoking lol(never actually did drugs nor do I now). But it's so refreshing now to look and compare with kids now days. Thanks for sharing. As always bless you, your husband and your baby.
Dina I absolutely think you ARE genius!!! you brighten my day all the time!! xx
Assalamu'alaikum Dina. I only discovered you this year, so it's great to see the older photos of you, particularly from back when you first started blogging. Lovely of you to share them too.Thanks for a great video.
Actually loved this video!! The way you got Sid to take some of those pics of you 😭😂 you're so hilarious!! Beautiful then and beautiful now, masha'Allah Xx
OMG DINA I LAUGHED SO HARD LOL thanks for putting this video up it really made me feel a bit better about how bad i look on a day to day bases :''D
honestly. people. get over yourself. stop telling her what way to wear the hijab. its ok because its her style. we cant digest it coz its different. if u dont like it dont do it. atleast she is doing something. i am a muslim i dont even wear a hijab. she wears a scarf. evrybody has their own thing. u can already see enough comments about her hijab. it's not important for everyone to jump in and start commenting about it.
If all is your choice then what is the place of Allah subhanahu wa taala I. Yours..how do you say you obey Allah and messanger.... That is what a Muslim does right
But I see you wearing hijab in your photo and you look nice
sana iftikhar Good point! Mashaalah
Well said Sunna :)
I love Dina 😂 the fact that she can laugh at herself now
LOL I love how she says, " I thought it could have gone in bloody vogue." like that's unrealistic. I have actually seen pics like that in magazines. Beauty standards are really not the same everywhere and I just looooooovved some of these pics, honey. Your beauty is so versatile and that creativity is so much better than any vogue beauty standard.
YOUR BEST VIDEO TBH BY FAR! I laughed so hard at this:) Thanks Dina for giving me hope:)))
You're so funny!! And so right for setting a good example for young girls who follow you, especially as like you said the role models of today are the Kardashians and the Jenners. Think the key thing is to be able to look back and see how we blossom and stop striving for a perfection created by the media 💕
loved this video! you were sooo cute dina- and i was exactly the same- esp about the scar under your neck and having it tight 😂😂you and sid will make wonderful parents in shaa Allah, yes its hard but its sooo much fun too 😄
This video had me about finished! Love you Dina, your banter is just the best
Love you Dina. Your style is so inspirational to young British muslim girls... keep smiling and may Allah grant u all the happiness and bless you with a healthy little baby (Ameen )
LMAO this video made me laugh (and kind of feel better about myself) because I did a LOT of those styles when I was growing up (I think we're the same age)I cleasrly remember the "Spanish" style era LOLAlso in your Hijab story video you said that when you first started to wear it, the main style was to wear it in a rectangle with one piece pinned to the top and I wore exactly the same style when I was in 6th, 7th, and 8th grades lmao
thank you SO much for the reassurance!!!! I'm turning 18 this year and literally everyone i know is extremely gorgeous and popular with over 1000 insta followers, just because of their looks and style. it makes me really depressed because i am no where near being so put together!
This actually makes me feel better about myself lol. I'm 16 and seeing other people my age look so pretty and look hot and look waaaayyy older than 16.. Just makes me feel bad but now I know I'm not alone. Do a video on this topic?
This is so awesome haha!! Going through old photos is the best!! 😂
Hi Dina, I just wanted to tell you how much I agree with you. Girls, keep being girls ! And honestly, I've never felt so much beautiful and confident now I've reached the 30 Milestone ! Dont worry girls, aging is cool !
Ahhhh Dina 😂😂😂 You brave soul lolYour pics brought back memories for me. Im 24 and back in my teen days, i too hardly wore much makeup and my hijab style was cringe. I deleted all my pics from those days because i looked so atrocious 😂 I agree with you, these young girls should enjoy their youth and not rush to look older and overly obsess over their appearance. Although we looked a bit funny back in our days, atleast we were happy xx
I laughed so hard :)) You're hilarious Dina! And u made me feel better for not growing too fast! ;)
None of these are loser-ish or embarassing in any way, shape or form. I actually found them to be fairly sweet and heartwarming. Not everyone starts out big, perfect or a fully-formed individual. You have to work your way up and evolve. That's why this video was so cute - it showcases the growth of a person.
Don't worry ladies! Everyone eventually "glows up" if you know what I'm saying. I'm actually thinking of doing a similar video like Dina's here because I have too many embarrassing photos too :)
Haha loved this video. It remembers me my beggining as a hijabi. When i look back i tell to myself how is that possible lol Gret video. Bless you
Your so funny Dina! Love all your videos. Please could you do a back to school makeup look? That would really help me. Thankyou and love you nd your channel!😘
These are no where as bad as my old photos! and Dina you were not chubby! you were and are so beautiful! Ma sha Allah! Loved this video....made me laugh ahaha :)
I'm just imagining how awkward it must be for girls who wear those hijab styles to watch this...
Kept cracking up, this is so hilarious. More your commentary than the actual pictures. Loved it.
"DONT BLOSSOM TOO FAST"I couldn't agree more! I looked a hot mess in my teens it's only now in my mid 20s that I'm like "Yasssssss, look at what God did!" :D HAHAHA Xx
Never laughed so hard in my life ! Dina you are so hilarious .
i love you! so straight up ,honest and inspirational ! xxxx
Oh man Dina, watching your videos make me realize how harsh people are to themselves. I'm just as I'm just as harsh to myself when it comes to beauty and weight. But you really were such a beautiful young girl. 👌👌👌👌
You're so funny Deena! Still pretty Ma Shaa Allah in your younger days
towards the end , its getting more and more funny 😂 thanks for making my day dina HAHAHAH!!
I feel like it would be the best thing if Sid was to do this video and react to his old photos!
This is way too funny you made my day Dina😂😂
When I tell people I bought my first make up product at 19 they are always surprised!! And I too thought I was the bees knees :P I used to put bronzer on my cheeks instead of blush because I thought that made me look like a bronze goddess :')
You are my new fave! 😂❤️ Loved this video. So genuine.
haha love this video! I don't feel so bad for all my awkward pictures now!
That's not embarrassing, dear..that was the correct way to wear hijab I think :)But, yeah.. u still look gorgeous now with all the things you have chosen..Allah bless you :)
yes...it WAS correct hijab..
Tria Noviani A lot of those weren't "correct," but just fashion choices.
I'm a man and you have reallly inspired me to wear a hijab. Thank you xx
Funny I actually look back on my photos from my teens and early 20s and wished I looked like that now (although I was not particularly confident then or now)!!! :P I get that you are a fashionista and your looks/image are very important to you and your career but it is kind of sad to see you put yourself down so much (even with humour) as a lot of people can only dream of being as gorgeous as you are even in your old photos. I get that it's supposed to be humorous though....and as we all know... it's what's on the inside that matters!!! :)
Thank you for this. I needed cheering up and you did exactly that! :)
hahahahahaha this is so good! I watched you from the very beginning, and when I first started wearing hijab, I copied your style, with the homemade loofah hair volumize (a tutorial of yours in fact), half way through the day the volumiser had slipped off and was dragging my scarf back as well as making it sag, it looked like voldemort was trying to escape!
it looked like voldemort was trying to escape!Hahaha.. this really made me laugh out loud :P
hahahaha.... voldemort trying to escape.. exemplified it perfectly.. lol
@Nisa N lmao! that had me laughing for a solid few mins lool.. voldermort escaping did it lol
@Lovely Mocochang Don't worry about it.
@Nisa N that's not hijab that she is wearing now it's only fashion you can tell by the difference between her old look and the now ones because hijab should cover all the neck and hair too only the face is showing
you look good in your teen photos dina. thanks for sharing tha with us
Loved the vid Dina, every night I have to watch a vid of urs before bed. Cant believe how different you looked before... and definitely not chubby! Always beautiful, always a unique sense of style
I had to pause the video to write this -- yes! I am 22 now, so only couple years younger than you are, and I feel like when I was 12, 10 years ago, I was still playing with my younger brother and his friends (no girls my age in the neighbourhood), riding bikes, running around, and at that time I JUST started to look around for some makeup, I would usually only wear a little bit of mascara, a sheer lipgloss or a lipbalm, and maybe a little concealer because I have quite dark undereye area... I wore tomboyish clothes. I never thought it was strange, but nowadays girls that age, around 12-13 dress, and behave way too mature. I think they might miss out a lot.
Totally agree with you when you say girls are growing up so fast. When I was 18 I looked nothing like the mass of today's 18 year-year-olds. Also... those bandanas were totally my past as well XD
Loved it! So true how are styles change but we loved them at every stage of our lives
I don't know why you're embarrassed of these pics! You looked cute!
HAHAHA! you made my day! totally love you! you are great and should be super confident, you are gorgeous and incredible!!!!
you are so funny!!!!! you had me cracking up the entire video!! Don't listen to all the hateful comments, you do you boo boo
Sooo funny, youre the best Dina! Youve changed allot, it was nice to see that gradual transformation from girly (age appropriate) cute to sophisticated/classy cute.
I literally can't breathe from laughing right now. Old photos are the actual worst, so embarrassing!!!
I actually think that you looked really cool and stylish in your old photos just as you do now. I like them gangster ones with the bandanas and the hat. you remind me of me. some of these old looks you could bring back. that intricate makeup was bomb too. these old photos make me love your style even more.
Nice to see you were so proud and 'bees knees' when you were growing up! you are still young, so it was hardly even a decade ago, so you are growing. I hope you keep on pushing yourself an being as original as you can, try not to put yourself down in your comments, even if you are doing so in humor, be kind to yourself.
i find your Old photos very sweet and lovely. mashallah. please dont ever be ashamed of who you were as that is who you are and how you got where you are today. i love watching you and your husband. may Allah reward you. inshallah
Enjoyed this video! Something really fun about looking through old photos xD The great thing about facebook xD
You are so right about the ages and how we should take our time to develop/grow up. I thought exactly the same, how Kylie Jenner looks so womanly (but fake obviously) at such a young age. And when I was at that age I knew shit all about make up or looking 'sexy'. Lol. And I think you look absolutely beautiful in all your pictures! I wouldn't call any of them embarrassing 😂
lmaooo I loved this video so much respect for you to upload your old pictures xxx
Would love a makeup tutorial on this look, beautiful!
You look like 30 different ethnicities throughout these photos 😂😂
You was beautiful then, and still are. Wouldn't be who you are without old dina! Always funny to look back and old styles but you was never fat!!! xx
Lmao that was hilaaarious but it's very brave of you to show all these photos it shows how much you have grown up as a woman xoxo
I find it amazing how your parents are from different backgrounds and the fact that your mums English and you still wear a hijab, wow. There's a lot of muslim girls in my area and they don't wear one, each to their own I guess. Not that there's anything wrong with not wearing one js
Let's not call all tissue wrapped around ones head a hijab. Please.
Alexandra lol what the hell, at what point did i say i have a problem? i said i found it amazing, please read things properly before you jump to co conclusions
Asma Shah there is nothing wrong with her wearing one either! Let her do her own thing. She's not telling you how to live your life.
ya and kurdish. why??
+Sara Hallo what do u mean??
Im sick of everyone judging hijabis?who are u to judge lmao hijabis cant breathe without getting judged mind your own business
Tara Almosa a true Muslim can do yt what made u think that if u wanna be a true Muslim u can't do yt
listen mate if you disagree with what she is doing then go mind your own business in some other place. ppl can do what ever they like. if you wanna be a really true muslim you shouldn't be on youtube any way go do itikaf in a mosque or something
I think we've all gone through different hijab stages (to which many are very embarrassing). I cringe every time o looked at my old pictures haha
Lmao. Loved it! You can really see the growth in your journey! Keep up the great work!
DINA you look so cute aha and your reactions were to funny 😂😂😭, I'm sure your baby will be so beautiful inshallah!
lol Dina you did pretty well compared to some of our throwback pics 😭
this woman,,,, keeps a smile on my face
After reading all those comments, I feel like I need to say that you are very beautiful Dina and that the way you wear your hijab now doesn't make you any less modest. I've seen a few videos of yours and you're not wearing any tight close any more, we can't see your 'body'. So who cares if we can see a bit of your roots or your neck, or your wrist. The important thing is how you feel about yourself. You are married, in a healthy relationship with a man you didn't "date" to be a good muslim and who wanted to marry you from the beginning. I think you are very respectworthy, very beautiful and giving a good image of islam. You're doing this on your own choice, on your own terms and we can see you are a happy hijabi.
sorry, there are rules to wear hijab properly. And you CAN'T ignore them. It's mandatory to cover the whole hair, neck and chest. Even a strand of hair is a sin if you let it shows. Yes i can know which cause sin which isn't because we have a 'guidebook'. it's pretty sad she's moving backwards... she wears hijab correctly then... but now...
Are you a muslim. No you arent PROBABLY. The hijab needs to cover ALL tje hair and you cant show the neck either. Its not like oh ot doesn't matter iys only a little bit. This is not a hijab. A hijab is for modesty and inner beauty this doesn't show modesty. Anyways ots her choice and you're free tp write whatever im just telling you the right thing.
I honestly don't think you looked chubby in any of your photos. I definitely think you have a nice face. Not just saying that. It just takes time to develop our personal style x
desde mexico, gracias dina eres una inspuracion para ser mejor. saludos.
