Or in some cases even a muslim country (eeehhhhhm, my morocco experiment *rolling the eyes*) !!!
Here are some nice practical tips on how to get a good start with wearing the niqab insha Allah :)
"Veiling is the tradition of Muslim women. Since its prescription, the prophet’s wives, daughters and other believing Muslim women have strictly observed it. Today, the Muslim ladies keep it up. When you wear full hijab (covering of the head, neck, chest, face, hands and feet) in a non-Muslim country, there is no doubt that you are Muslim. A Niqab is a veil which covers the face of a woman.
Study the Daleels, the verses of the Holy Quran, the Hadith and the traditions that back up your view about Niqab, then you can share them with others.
Make yourself familiar with the benefits of Niqab and the disadvantages of unveiling.
Understand the hardships that might arise from wearing Niqab.
Discuss your decision with someone else, such as your parents or best friend.
Practice wearing Niqab in your home or other private places. You may find it difficult to breathe or see in Niqab when you first start wearing it.
Start wearing Niqab, make Dua and ask Allah to help you wearing it.
Get in touch with other Niqabis you meet.
When you are passing another woman, smile, make good eye contact, and greet them. Set a good example for all Muslims.
Be nice to people who serve you (i.e. cashiers, waitresses, etc.).
Get to know your neighbors. Greet them when you see them out.
If your parents are against the Niqab, discuss with them. Try to convince them that you have the freedom to choose the opinion that you believe to be correct.
Don’t judge other muslimahs that do not wear Niqab or Hijab.
Don't wear eye veils at first, as you get used to having on niqaab and are comfortable with it, then you can start making the slit more narrow.
Be prepared to answer questions about the Niqab or possibly recieve rude comments or stares. Show them you are a nice person, and make them regret acting rude."
