'All American Muslim' Explores The Hijab Dilemma (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

What's life like as a Muslim-American?

A new eight-part series on TLC, which premiered Nov. 13 to 1.7 million viewers, tries to answer that question by following the lives of five very different Muslim-American families. The show, "All-American Muslim," was filmed in Dearborn, Mich., a suburb of Detroit that's known for it's large Arab-American population. It promises to go "inside the rarely seen world of American Muslims to uncover a unique community struggling to balance faith and nationality in a post 9/11 world," according to a press release.

The upcoming episode highlights Samira, who is struggling with infertility. She wants to start wearing her hijab again to bring her closer to God. It seems “to wear the hijab or not to wear the hijab” is a regular inner conflict amongst Muslim women.
