The Mothers of the Believers

Success is something everyone strives for in this world, but what we sometimes forget to recognize is that the true meaning of success can only be defined by the Creator. Allah sent our Prophet (S) as an example of an ideal character that his ummah (community) should follow in order to achieve everlasting success. And specifically for women, our Prophet (S) mentions the four best women to ever live, Khadijah bint Khuwaylid, Fatima bint Muhammad, Asiya bint Muzahim, and Maryam bint Imran.  Khadijah (AS): “She believed in me when all others disbelieved.” - Prophet Muhammad (S) referring to his beloved, Khadijah (AS).  Our Mother, Khadijah (AS), was a very successful businesswoman amongst the Quraysh, being characterized as resolute and noble,...

The Hijab Style Guide

There are millions of styles to choose from when it comes to wrapping our hijabs, but here are some Veiled Beaut inspired ideas to get you started!

Renewing Your Intentions

Each and every one of us lives with a purpose that shapes our actions, and more importantly, our lives. Once we discover that purpose we begin to work towards implementing the necessary actions needed to shape our lives to align with that same purpose. However, we sometimes forget to be mindful of our intentions as we try to shape our new world.

Clean out everything that you don’t wear anymore and choose a generous way to repurpose them. Make space for the items that empower you and make you feel...

Happy World Hijab Day!

Veiled Beaut is proud to celebrate World Hijab Day! Today, we acknowledge the lifestyle chosen by millions of women around the world. Alongside this, it is an opportunity for ALL women to walk in the shoes of hijab-wearing women with the intention of promoting religious tolerance and understanding from Muslims to non-Muslims alike. We are proud to encourage this year’s motto, “Unity in Diversity” by speaking about gaining opportunities as a professional while observing hijab.    We want to have a fair chance, just like everybody else, and to some hijab can be seen as an obstacle to the opportunities we seek. We’ve all been there, and we understand these hurdles all too personally, but along the way we’ve come...

NY Modest Fashion Expo

Salaam, VB headed to New York this past weekend to attend the first ever NY Modest Fashion Expo. The expo took place on Sunday from 12-6pm hosted by Al-Shams Islamic Apparel and showcased over a dozen Muslim brands. Attendees had the opportunity to shop, get to know these brands better, and of course, enjoy some refreshments. Although VB didn’t set up shop for the day, we explored, networked, and did some shopping of our own. We wanted to take a moment to highlight this event because although the turnout was great, there wasn’t much buzz around the event. Muslim women have been making strides to make the lives of American Muslim women easier, however, they just don’t get the same...
