Female work colleague: So how does your husband like being married to a white girl?
Me (baffled by question): Well, he likes being married to me very much.
The thing is, my husband's actually pretty light-skinned, as are most people in his country, so it's not as if we sit on the sofa next to each other, comparing skin tones and singing "Ebony and Ivory".
Other questions which are annoying are the ones where people are trying to find out his legal status. A firmly stated "Yes, he is legally allowed to be here, if that's what you're getting at", usually silences that one.
Aside from that, everyone has been very positive, Alhamdulilah. Although I had someone at work I hadn't met before, say "I see you've taken your husband's faith (In a tone of voice like I'd caught syphillis from him). It was quite satifying to show her my work ID (showing me in a hijab) and saying "I've been Muslim for two years now, actually".
The longer I am Muslim, the better it feels to be one, Alhamdulilah. One of the good things about it, is that those around you have gotten used to you being Muslim. Work colleagues know you don't go out drinking and won't go to works parties, it's accepted.
Being tolerated, is not the same as being accepted, that this who you are, what you believe, how you want to live your life.
The acceptance from your family can be harder to obtain, because deep down, they may wish you weren't Muslim. It's hard knowing that those you love want to change something that feels so essential to you.
The last time I visited my parent's house I noticed two new photographs, my wedding photographs, showing me, their daughter in hijab, with her Muslim husband. In pride of place for for all to see. It was then, that I felt accepted.
