    Hi,
    I've got an interview at a Birmingham branch of McDonalds. I wear the hijab and was wondering if its gonna be a bit awkward? I've never seen a hijabi working at McDonalds tbh

    No it's fine, it's the same as a sikh wearing a turban.

    You should be proud of wearing one. It's what Muslim females should do.

    Lol. Even though I wear the hijab, I don't think its something Muslim females 'should' do. It's a personal choice, it shouldn't be compulsory

    Yeah, I know it's a personal choice. But I verge the personal choice towards wearing it (thus the moral choice 'should' - not compulsory), to follow the life of the ladies during Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W)'s time. Surah Al Ahzab - Verse 59.

    I've seen plenty of McDonald's workers wearing a hijab. You can never count against individual bigotry, but McDonalds seem like fair employers on the whole
