I answer to the King.

“With my veil, I put my faith on display — rather than my beauty. My value as a human is defined by my relationship with God, not by my looks. And when you look at me, you don’t see a body. You view me only for what I am a servant of my Creator. You see, as a Muslim woman, I’ve been liberated from a silent kind of bondage. I don’t answer to the slaves of God on earth. I answer to the King.”

-Yasmin Mogahed
