Hi! Um, I'm not Muslim, but I have a question, if that's okay. I'm a cashier, so I interact with a lot of people daily. Yesterday, a woman came in and she had on a blue hijab and a black garment that I think might have been an abaya (I didn't get a good look, it was a really busy day and I had a lot of people to take care of). I thought that the hijab looked really beautiful, especially how it contrasted with her other garments. Would it have been okay for me to tell her that, or no?
YES!!!! You are more than welcome to compliment a Muslim woman on her hijab or abaya. We love compliments on our outfits just like everyone else :)
