i am a 23 year old girl who has recently started wearing abaya to campus. my parents at first did not support this and it has been hard as they pass comments that do hurt alot. i have been wanting to wear niqaab but they are against it and they feel that i am overdoing it, my heart desires it but i do not know how to go about bringing them to understand why i want to wear it as i feel these changes that i have implemented in my life would inshallah influence my younger sisters to follow as well. i have graduated recently and have to start work so that i can pay back my bursary, as i am in a male dominated field i feel that by observing niqaab i would feel safer in the work place. is this the right way to feel?
please can you advise me to how i should go about it and are there any verses of the quran that i can use to aid my views please.
