Salam, so like i said i am sorry but i only want answers from muslim females/males. I have been confused about wearing the hijab ever since forever i am 17 years old and my parents told me it is my choice if i want to wear the hijab or not... but they explained to me that it is a must in islam but they won't force me to it. Aside from my parents every time someone dies i get influenced so much i start thinking about what if it was me right now how will i meet god with all of my sins and not doing what he asked me to do like wearing the hijab... the only thing that honestly keeps stopping me is my friendpool and environment i grew up around all non hijabis even though i live in saudi arabia so i am always afraid of the fit in part but i keep reminding myself that they are all of no use when i die.. i am really confused what do you think i should do? i am also gonna study for uni in Canada this year so keep this in mind and i have talked to two hijabis that i trust a lot. one said sometimes i regret choosing to wear the hijab because if i am not careful i feel like i am sinning so i told her but women in america are currently going out without their hijab and they wish if they could and she said yes exactly and then that makes me thankful for the ability to wear it. the other girl completely supported me and said i should definitely wear it even if i go to america what do you think?

Definatly not a sin to not wear it. It's really a choice for you. Sure it's good to wear it because you'll then keep traditions but it is not something you are required to do
Also in Canada you can wear it with no issues, no one ones minds in Canada. A lot of women wear hijabs in Canada
You can always try and stop and keep trying or not. It doesn't have to only yes or no.. try and see how you feel2

to be honest, it's all depends on yourself. nobody forcing you to wear it, and it never a force. if you're ready to wear it, just wear it. for me, it's just a transition of yourself, as you know, once you're wear the hijab, it's not only about covering your hair, it's actually you're wearing an image of Muslim lady, so it's a self control I can say, it's control you from bringing bad image or reputation as Muslim lady, but trust me, it never stop my passion - to travel, to be successful, to be tough , you can be anything. it makes me feel closer to my faith and make me a better lady. that's my personal opinion.
I do believe everyone can be a positive and kind-hearted person, regardless what they wear. it's the heart inside you that matter, not your appearance. If you think you're ready to wear it, congrats. if not, don't force yourself. God knows what's inside every people3
