  • Hijab at the airport


  • #2
    Wa alaykum salaam!

    Great questions, not silly at all.

    Metal pins for me have never gone off. I looked this up once but only certain types of metals ring and if they do they just swipe you over and send you on your way.

    Only time I ever got physically pat down was because I decided I wanted to bring sour patch kids and it went off in the machine so they had to test it for drugs. Apparently it's the sugar. May have been an excuse and it's profiling, who knows. But I got pat down, didn't remove hijab though, they just run a hand down your neck. Did have to pull down niqaab.

    I wore black on passport. Can't go wrong there lol.

    Overall I've traveled a lot but alhamdulillah never faced issues really. Just be confident and friendly as possible, give into reasonable requests even if you might feel they're picking on you. Don't anticipate problems but while in America I always save the info to CAIR or other orgs that support Muslims with lawyers etc.

      a while back in the news it showed a hijabi women was interrogated when she went into usa and shes a us citizen
      they strip searched her
      and it was even more embarressing for her due to her having female hygiene products

        Wa alaykum assalam sis. I wore a black hijab on my passport pic. Any color is fine, as long as it's not the exact same color as the background. Hijab is so mainstream. There is nothing to be worried about sis. I've traveled with niqab several times and I've never faced any problems.

          Hijab is fine no one will ask you to take it off. American airports can be extreme though from what i've heard.
          شَكَوْتُ إلَى وَكِيعٍ سُوءَ حِفْظِي
          فَأرْشَدَنِي إلَى تَرْكِ المعَاصي
          وَأخْبَرَنِي بأَنَّ العِلْمَ نُورٌ
          ونورُ الله لا يهدى لعاصي
