It was a moment Laila Al-Marayati wishes she had back.
Standing outside the Islamic Center of Southern California in Los Angeles following Friday prayers, a male worshipper approached and chastised her for not wearing a headscarf.
"If you were a true Muslim," he snapped, "you would keep your hair covered."
Al-Marayati, a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles-based Muslim Women's League, was taken aback and too shocked to be able voice her anger.
Looking back, she wishes she could have given him a piece of her mind.
"And if you were a true Muslim," she would have told him, "you wouldn't be staring at me."
