Wearing Hijab In The Proper Way

Hijab in Islam, is basically a “dress code” for Muslim women in public. Many perceive hijab as “traditional” & a form of oppression; but truth is, hijab protects & safeguards women from harassment! The wisdom behind hijab is to minimize sexual enticement & most importantly, it's a form of obedience to our Lord, Allah.

Take hijab as your pride & Insyallah, you will become a better Muslimah

#1. The most basic form of hijab is to cover the whole body, except the hands up to the wrist. Take note that hijab isn't only about covering your head with a headscarf but it’s about covering your body too! A hijab isn’t complete until both requirements (head & body) are covered

#2. A proper hijab requires one to wear loose clothes in order to avoid “showing” those beautiful curves! The Prophet (pbuh) has warned us that women who are dressed yet naked (i.e: tight-fitting clothes) will receive harsh punishment in Hell (nauzubillah)

#3. Think that headscarf or long skirt of yours is solid enough? Look again, it might be transparent & people are able to see the shape of your hair bun or legs! Whatever material or fabric you put on yourself; make sure they aren't transparent!

#4. Ladies, keep your attire or outfit simple & modest! There’s no need to be flashy in order to attract the 
attention of others! Most importantly, it should be free of anything that may lead to arrogance, self-conceited, pride & riya’. As ladies, we are to display Allah’s blessings upon us in our clothing but do it without going to the extreme of wastage or extravagance

#5. “Are you a girl… or a boy?” Is the type of question other people shouldn’t be asking when it comes to an individual & we should avoid it at all costs! Dressing up/looking as the opposite gender is dangerous to self, as it challenges the pride & it brings confusion to others. So ladies, be proud of your girly self! :)

#6. Why bother dressing up the others (i.e: the unbelievers) when you, as a Muslimah, have your own identity to be proud of? By imitating them outwardly, it might lead to imitating them inwardly (beliefs, characteristics). Muslim ladies too, have their own style and fashion to be proud of! :)
