Hijab is not Hijab

prophijab

Salaam sisters, friends, and readers,

There is hijab and there is hijab.This picture below shows perfectly what is proper and what is not.

Sisters, I hope I do offend any of who are trying to wear the hijab. If you decide to wear it, do it properly and in Modesty style. If your plan is to start slowly before going full-blown (Not burqa full-blown), do it conservatively.

Do not misunderstand me, before I started wearing hijab properly, I wore it the improper way too. In order to succeed, you make mistakes along the way. You learn as you continue to read Islamic literature and from family and friends that are most advanced in Islam than you :).

In the next video, you will get some great insights. I hope you like it. Do not take offense to it and see it through.

Even myself is at fault. I have worn bright hijab before. We can perfume ourselves and wear these things between people who are considered mahram (blood relatives and our husbands). The problem comes when we pontificate ourselves around people who have no business in seeing us. I just needed to clarify this about the video.

I hope you liked my little post. I am planning to talk about the Literate mind next! 🙂

Illiterate

What do you Muslims and non-Muslims sisters and friends think of Hijab?
For the sisters that wear the Hijab, what is your opinion on this post?
For the sisters that are making their way slowly to Hijabe Nation, how is journey so far? Do you need any help?

Sincerely,

    As-Salāmu ‘Alaykum (^_^),

    There’s a fundamental misunderstanding and misconstruing about the hijāb – what it signifies and what it entails – amongst Muslims. It’s often mistaken for the headscarf, which it’s not; it’s a practise.

    Salam Alaikum, Nice piece of article you have here. I definitely believe hijab should be worn properly and frown at the use of just headscarf. however i’ve come to understand the plight of women who want to wear the hijab properly but are prevented from doing do by their jobs or some other circumstances. We definitely cant asked them to quit their jobs; they need to fend for themselves and their families. How can we help such sisters? or rather how do we not judge those sisters

      Wa aleikum salam sister. Jazak’Allah khair for reading this. I believe that dua and praying for our ummah are the only solutions. Allah helps and facilitates the opening of doors. And also, hijab doesn’t make anybody more religious. It’s in the heart and the actions. So, judging should stop. People need to worry more about their after life instead of worrying about others. That said, every building block (ethnic head wraps not camel humps) we take in wearing hijab is a step in the right direction and Allahu alim :).
