Salam everyone, I have been wearing hijab for more than 10 years, I wore it even since I was 9 years old and now I am 17. As girls get older they like to experiment e.g trying out new styles and colours and materials etc. to be quite honest I have never once looked into the mirror and said "I look really nice with hijab" I understand we are doing it for Allah and that is all that matters but surely we should feel confident within ourselves. Anyways to my situation I have been buying so many scarfs, trying different colours and different styles and I know this may sound absolutely ridiculous but I keep thinking my face looks fat! Every time I look into the mirror I think I look ugly and fat, what is wrong with me? I don't want to feel like that! Please help me.

Aoudou billahi min a shayton arajeem bismillah arahman arahiym. Sister your face is beautiful masha Allah . Its Satan who whispers in your ear these things. Seek refuge in Allah from the accursed Satan. also be careful of what trends you follow. Wearing shariah hijab is best.
