What Was It Like Going To Prom When You're Muslim?

Or, in some cases, not being able to go.

Prom is one of those classically American things that every kid looks forward to.

But when you're Muslim, it can sometimes be a struggle.

So we want to hear your prom stories for an episode of BuzzFeed's podcast See Something Say Something!

Maybe you had to have an impromptu tailoring session on the night of prom to make your dress more halal.

Maybe you slayed all the haters with a fire look and they crowned you Prom Queen.

Or maybe your parents wouldn't budge, and you spent prom night at home watching movies with your other friends who couldn't go.

Whatever it is, we want to hear your stories! Post them in the comments section below or email us at for a chance to be featured in a future BuzzFeed Community post or episode of See Something Say Something!
