Lenten Post #3: Dalia Mogahed and why she wears a hijab

For Post #3, I’d like to share a video of Dalia Mogahed on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah. Among other topics concerning Muslim Americans in this country, Dalia shares why she wears a hijab, and a few other thoughts on the hijab that I found interesting. Yes you will have to sit through a commercial. Sorry. And yes the video is 6 minutes long. But trust, me it’s informative. In fact, Dalia is a good person to listen to if you’d like to find out more about the Muslim American perspective. She can be found pretty much all over the internet and on every major national news channel.
