    Hi guys,
    I'm an atheist but a group of Muslim girls have set up the hijabi challenge at my university, which involves non Muslims wearing a hijabi and writing down how they feel while wearing it. I did it and I really liked how pretty I looked, and lots of people wanted to take photos because I looked really good.

    So my question is: would it be offensive if I wore one occasionally, as I'm not a Muslim? Or would it be seen as solidarity and acceptable?
    Why on eath would it be offensive? If it looks good den rock it

    You tried the hijab for a day thing too? I never picture myself doing something like that, but somehow it found me.

    It's not offensive for a non-Muslim to wear hijab. It isn't only a religious accesory, it's also cultural.
