    Breast Cancer Awareness Month
    In 2004, a group of female students in Columbia, Missouri wore bright pink hijabs to their high school, hoping to challenge stereotypes of Muslim women and highlight breast cancer as a cross-cultural issue. Breast cancer is the second most common kind of cancer in women.

    About 1 in 8 women today in the United States will get breast cancer at some point. The good news is that many women can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early. A mammogram – the screening test for breast cancer – can help find breast cancer early when it’s easier to treat.

    Breast Cancer Awareness is a chance to raise awareness about the importance of early detection of breast cancer. Make a difference! Spread the word about mammograms and encourage communities, organizations, families, and individuals to get involved.

    The Columbia students established Pink Hijab Day - This special day typically takes place on the fourth Wednesday of October. With this day falling in the midst of the Holy Month Muharam, the Al Ahad community will observe its Pink Hijab Day on Thursday October 8th.

    The purpose of the day is threefold as established by the Pink Hijab Day website:

    Hijab – To encourage those who are curious about Muslim women and about hijab to ask Muslim women about what their hijab means

    Society – To encourage Muslim women to participate in various community improvement projects because we are a valuable part of the fabric of the societies we live in. One of these projects is the effort to find a cure for breast cancer

    Health – To encourage all people to maintain their health by getting regular screenings and to increase knowledge about preventative methods.

    Men are also encouraged to wear Pink on this day too.
