For me a bad hijab is no hijab at all.. and worse than that
is the muslim girl walking around pretty much naked, not covering anything of
her body. now im not talking about her faith or her love for Allah SWT, so i
dont need everyone commenting on 'even though she may dress like a hooker,
doesnt mean she doesnt love Allah, we dont know what is in her heart,
im just talking about dress here. some people wear niqab, others wear hijab,
others wear a half-hijab style (bangs etc), while some wear no hijab but still
wear modest clothing... then there are the other types of muslimahs... who wear
skanky tight clothing, short short skirts, bikini's.. you name it. now im not
one to force hijab on anyone, i myself believe hijab is a process and we all go
through different stages and level of our hijabiness, but there is no excuse
for a MUSLIM WOMAN to walk around looking a "street worker" if you
know what i mean. if you dont want to wear hijab then thats your choice, but
you can still look modest without hijab.
these two following girls are muslim. i think it is disgusting to be walking
around on a stage, naked like this, reprsenting Islam and their respective
Islamic countries at the same time. remember i am not talking about their 'no
hijab' choice, im talking about the fact that they are completely nude while
telling the world they are muslim. No one asks to be a role model, but with
girls like this walking around, giving out the wrong idea to younger muslim
women and girls, i think it will be increasingly difficult for women to don the
hijab when so many muslim women have succumbed to the "i have to look sexy
all the time" thinking that is going on.
not attacking girls who dont wear hijab. i have seen many who dont wear hijab
but still manage to look modest, covered and beautiful as muslimahs. even
non-muslims manage the look. for example take non-muslim celebrity Jessica
Alba. No hijab but still looking fabulous, stylish and modest in everyday
you are not ready for full hijab then try these looks....Half hijab and very
modest... one very beautiful look on the road to full hijabiness.
every muslimah is at different level of hijab conciousness and readiness. i fully
understand and respect that, but as muslim women i think we need to find a
limit in what we can and should wear and know when "too little" is
indeed too little.
these pics make me very mad...as a woman I feel it degrades
all women to just pretty little dols for men's pleasure...as a muslim it goes
against modesty ordered by Allah to both genders..men & women
& finally as an Egyptian...
I really like your sense of fashion, but with all due respect I find some of
your blog entries to be extremely judgemental. Whether you agree or disagree
with another woman's way of dressing doesn't really matter.
As Muslim women we should always believe in the right of every woman to choose
what she wants to wear or not to wear. How can we fight for a woman's right to
wear hijab in countries where this is forbidden in certain positions, and at
the same time not let a woman choose to wear a bikini?
Every man and woman on this planet should have the right to choose what to wear
or not to wear. Before we judge anybody else for something WE BELIEVE to be
wrong we should remind ourselves of all the wrong things that we do OURSELVES.
Just had to get that off my chest.I know you won't agree, and you don't need to
respond to this, but I've been debating whether or not to say something for a
while, and this blog entry really went to an extreme in my opinion.
No hard feelings though.
thank you for posting these half-hijabi looks!I thought i'd look stupid dressed
like this,cause i don't want to wear full hijab,but want to dress modestly,and
this looks good
this is my blog. i am not speaking for anyone else. so of course i am going to
be judgemental on here because all the things on this blog belong to my
opinion. if you find it offensive and cant handle it then dont come on here. it
is your choice to come on here or not. and i was saying muslim women have the
right to wear what they want but we should have limits. i dont think any muslim
can agree that bikini, although it is a human right to wear it if chosen so, is
suitable in any way for muslim women. that is my opinion and as it is my blog i
will of course state my opinion. all i am trying to do is show degrees of
hijabiness and what we should steer clear of. im actually laughing at the fact
that you think i am being extremely judgemental by saying muslim women wearing
a bikini is unacceptable. would you tell Allah that a muslim has the right to
choose to wear a bikini in public? and as i said firstly in the post...
"now im not talking about her faith or her love for Allah SWT, so i dont need
everyone commenting on 'even though she may dress like a hooker, doesnt mean
she doesnt love Allah, we dont know what is in her heart, etc"....
im just talking about dress here."
.....im not judging personality, character as a muslim, faith, love for Allah,
piousness... im judging ONLY the dress code. i dont see that i went to an
extreme in anyway. im not one to advocate the bikini in anyway... and as a
muslim woman i can in no way relate the choice and freedom to wear bikini to
the choice and freedom to wear hijab.
think about it this way... if your daughter went out in the
street or a beach in a bikini, with all men looking at her like a piece of
meat, would you just keep your mouth shut and not say anything because you
didnt want to be "judgemental" and because as a woman she has a
choice to wear what she wants? there is no way i would keep my mouth closed.
sometimes being judgemental is for the best.
Well said Ange.
What do you think is better:to wear tight clothes and a
scarf,or to wear long skirts and not-so-tight tops and no scarf?
the sad thng is, you put those two models in hijab, and i
bet they look far more beautiful than in those bikinis.
Anony#1: of course i would have to go with the looser clothing option. but
proper hijab is better than both.
Anony #2: i agree SOOO much. the bikinis make them look cheap. hijab makes a
woman look so respectable
Nina: the point she is making is it is WRONG for MUSLIM
women to choose to wear a bikini. Not for a woman to have the freedom to choose
oh....ditto ditto ditto ange, WHY do you need to justify
yourself when we ALL know its the truth. BOO HOO to choice, or freedom or any
other blah blah, I am not the best example of a hijaby and my nafs struggles
with clothing but at the end of the day i dont ever DENY what Allah has
ordained for us as women, GET OVER IT AND JUST ACCEPT!!!
Equally brothers' shouldn't wear speedos, stubbie shorts or
go out of their way to be sexy or cool like wearing silk ties or gold jewellry.
"We don't want to see your short-shorts"
Salam Ange,I so agree with this post.Lolz Celeritas also
has a good point!
Baba Ali said that ryt? "We don't want to see your short-shorts. No one
wants to see your short shorts!" haha ha...
I actually see it differently than Nina. I actually liked
the way you put your opinions into words. Although I don't agree with *all* of
them, I thought the way you expressed your thoughts wasn't judgemental. You
have your opinions about things and you're fully free to express them,
especially in your own blog!
