Who is the Girl in the Wine Red Scarf?


Recollected in tranquility. 




Follow the girl behind the wine red scarf


ThEre is only the future to look forward to

When I started this blog, I had the intention of empowering people- especially young girls. I wanted to talk about issues that matter in society, reflect on what I had experienced and give tips or advice. 

With the grace of God, I started this blog because I wanted to give people a different perspective, especially since I am a Muslim and a girl wearing the hijab. I would like to give many thanks to God as He has given me so many blessings and gave me the courage to start this blog and the perseverance to continue doing so. 

I would also like to thank everyone for all the love given through support and motivation for me to keep on blogging. 

If anything, I hope my blog brings a smile to your face or comfort in your heart. 

-The Girl in the Wine Red Scarf. 

Salaam, Peace. 


The Liberation of wine

Pashmina blended with the softest silk,

It's colour of wine so sweet

But so sinful,


My Loyalty to God.



It dances in the wind so freely

But secured are

My values,

My identity.


'Modern' is the society.

And 'backwards' is I,

The girl In the silk pashmina,

Wine red scarf.


But Liberated I am,

To know I can be


With just inner beauty

And to


Wonderers of my outer beauty.


So Who Are You To say I am 'oppressed'?

And Who Are We To 'believe' the media?


Don't look at me.

Look into me;

For I am a girl


With her silk pashmina,

Wine red scarf.
