How to Hijab: Step 6/7

Salam!

Bismillah

Step 6 is getting that hair covered! I know most people think this is the most important step of hijab, but really all of the other stuff is much more important! Imagine throwing a scarf on your head while still wearing a t-shirt and jeans... makes no sense right? The loose clothes are much more important.


NOW WE FINALLY HAVE HIJAB!! We are wearing loose and concealing clothes, our hair/chests are covered, and you can't tell our body shape.

When donning your scarf, look for options that COVER YOUR CHEST!!

I know you will be temped to try out that new Turkish style, but girl that doesn't fulfill Qur'anic requirements!

And say to the believing women that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty; that they should not display their zeenah (charms, or beauty and ornaments) except what (must ordinarily) appear thereof; that they should draw their khimar (veils) over their bosoms and not display their zeenah except to their husbands, their fathers .... and that they should not strike their feet so as to draw attention to their hidden zeenah (ornaments). (24:31-32)

Did you read that? Clear as day it says COVER UP THOSE BOSOMS with your veils!

So do it.

I'm embarrassed to admit this nowadays, but this is what I did when I first started wearing hijab!! Astaghfirullah. I didn't really know much about hijab except that you had to cover your hair! Then at some point I started thinking, Hey, Shouldn't my clothes be a little looser? Shouldn't my shirts be longer?, etc. So I started buying new clothes to better fit hijab requirements. And now, alhamdulillah, I am going to try to start wearing abayas/jilbabs full-time soon.

I agree. A woman wearing a long skirt and loose top with no scarf is much more modest and attracts less male attention than a woman in a tight top and jeans with a hijab stuck on as an afterthought.
