Pregnant hijabi raps to celebrate Muslim women

A pregnant hijabi’s rap video on celebrating Muslim women who wear the headscarf has had support online, though some conservatives are against it.

Hijab and rap – do they mix? One woman certainly thinks so.

Syrian-American Muslim poet and activist Mona Haydar, 28, put out her first rap song, Hijabi, on Muslim Women’s Day earlier this week.

And the unique music video has received a warm response, with people using the hashtag #hijabiXmona to show their support.

However, some claimed it contravened Islamic values.
