Hijaab should be loose, not tight so that it describes any part of the body.
The purpose of clothing is to prevent fitnah (temptation), and this can only be achieved if clothes are wide and loose (hijaab). Tight clothes, even if they conceal the colour of the skin, still describe the size and shape of the body or part of it, and create a vivid image in the minds of men. The corruption or invitation to corruption that is inherent in that is quite obvious. So the clothes must be wide.
Usaamah ibn Zayd said: “The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) gave me a thick Egyptian garment that was one of the gifts given to him by Duhyat al-Kalbi, and I gave it to my wife to wear. He said, ‘Why do I not see you wearing that Egyptian garment?’ I said, ‘I gave it to my wife to wear.’ He said, ‘Tell her to wear a gown underneath it, for I am afraid that it may describe the size of her bones.’”
(Narrated by al-Diyaa’ al-Maqdisi in al-Ahaadeeth al-Mukhtaarah, 1/442, and by Ahmad and al-Bayhaqi, with a hasan isnaad).
Highlighting the choice of Hijaab being a legitimate right of women, politically empowers them and exposes the falsehood being propagated by the secular extremists that the hijaab degrades women and is forced upon them.
It is not the cloth that opress the woman, it is the ignorance about Islam!
A sister wrote once : “I watched a video lately about … how to tie a Hijaab!!!!!
YES! Now there is an “art” of tying the Hijaab, and it’s not al Hijaab al shar’i (the Islamic Hijaab) of course, but this is a “stylish” Hijab which shaytan beautify it in front of them and whispered them to wear it!!
It comes with different colors and looks! Yes!
There are different ways to wear this “Hijaab”:
There is one with layers, one with big flower(s) one the side, one with very attractive colors, one with accessories, one which looks like camel hump, one which sparkles, one with golden and silver design, etc, …. and many many others which take much time to be tied. Unfortunately, many sisters spend hours watching videos to learn the “proper” steps of tying this kind of “Hijab”!! Some others even go to hair stylish (in some Arabic countries) to tie these scarves (in “special” occasions) and pay money for that!
The funny thing is that these “Hijabs” attract attention more than the natural uncover hair does!!! But is this the Hijab Allah ordered Muslimat to wear in Qur’an?!!! Does this “Hijab” please Allah? Of course not!!! Why does Allah order Muslimat to wear Hijab: to attract eyes or to protect her from them?! If the scarf the Muslimah wears isn’t loose enough and does not cover her arms and chest so what will be the purpose of wearing it?!! THINK!
Hijaab will close only for you the doors of Hell….
if you wear Hijaab wear it properly and if you don’t then I’m not saying sisters who don’t wear hijaab is going to hell as that will be very ignorant statement, and it is obligatory on our sisters to wear it and we make dua for the sisters struggling instead of looking down at them. This article is just a support to those who are being oppressed and mocked at for wearing the hijab. Some sisters wear hijaab and don’t pray, some don’t wear hijaab but pray and some sisters wear the hijab and pray, so aim to wear the hijaab and pray always.
May Allah Subhan wa ta’ala bless all our sisters, you guys are the back bone of this Ummah so hold tight to the rope of Allah Subhan wa ta’ala…
?Aameen ya Allah?
