Citing her blog, Felexia said that in the recent months she was determined to wear the hijab (veil), even before she was a Muslim in her heart.

“Until now (3 July; it is currently 6am after the Shaur), I have been a Muslim at heart. What’s left is just being officiated as a Muslim of paper and in front of 4 witnesses…I have gone through many trials.


“But Alhamdulillah…I have receive tremendous support, which has touched my heart, and this positive support is what contributed to me acting rightly,” she wrote.

She wrote that she is blessed with a mother who has blessed her decision to embrace Islam.

“My mother said that I have changed for the better. Mom says that I have matured and I have finally grown up.

She said that since she came to know Islam, she has been more accepting, calm and that she is easily thankful for a humble life.

“Throughout the seven months I have worn the veil and known Islam, I have cried a lot.

“Not in sorrow, but in the sense of regret of my previous life and I feel that I want to repent,” she wrote.
