“Yet she belongs, finally and truly, only to God. The hijab is a symbol of freedom from the male regard, but also, in our time, of freedom from subjugation by the iron fist of materialism, deterministic science, and the death of meaning.

Drifting here and there, I did not know whether I rode on the wind or the wind rode on me.”
