• I am not Muslim: A lot of girls are wearing the hijab in Australia now, but some of them appear to be doing it to fit in with their friends, because they don't wear the modest clothes that usually accompany it. I have seen very tight jeans, midriff tops etc. I don't care one way or other, but I would have thought that wearing the hijab said something about your inner values.
  • I really could'nt give a rats, I read somewhere on an article that if you don't join then you die. How unfair is that?
  • i know a teacher at school who is a muslim and she is a very nice person - she wears a hijab but doesnt cover her face with it only her head - but she still is very religious
  • I can think of a time I saw a women who was wearing a Hijabi but was not very religious. Her family forced her to wear one. She also got in trouble simply for knowing males in school. Once I made the terrible mistake of calling her home and saying I was her friend... I had no idea there was anything wrong with what I said until I saw the look on her face. So there you go.
  • Every religion has traditions and followers who make decisions regarding which practices work for them and which do not. Being judgmental is not my job.
  • Personally i think hijab is more of a cultural thing, rather than relegious. I know some girls from the middle east that'll wear a hijab but not meet all its requirements such as being humble & modest. Also, wearing a gucci hijab kills the purpose lol. But then i know some Asian muslims who dont cover their head, but are modest & relgious as hell. Soo is it a common stereotype that when you see a hijabi, you think anything this persons involved in must be innocent? I mean, i got some stories to tell that'll rattle the core of all hijabis.. but i wouldnt feel right telling them lol. In final thoughts, i think people who wear the hijab and dont respect it should just not wear it. It should be left as a relegious thing rather than cultural, cuz when it cultural...they forget the true purpose behind it.
  • Hijab is a religious obligation, and guess what hijab is not just for us females. What I mean by that is that that guys should be covering the parts that awrah (not to be seen by other than one's spouse). So if someone was being offered a Hanes brief/boxers modeling job, that wouldn't be, islamically, a proper job. Anyhow, back to the topic at hands, which is sisters' hijab. What's the purpose in discussing this? We all know that many people wear it for cultural reasons and for fashion. I mean there is yo-yo hijab. See-thru hijab. Brand-name laughable YSL, Armani and CK hijab's. What's up with all of that? Putting hijab on when one isn't required to like when reciting or listening to the Quran, but not all the time outside. That's my favorite. (Sarcasm) How does talking about this benefit one? A better question would have been how has your experience been in talking to these people? You know I was slightly silly like some sisters, these days, showing some of my hair from the front..that nonmuslims used to say oooooooh you're showing your hair. Looking back, I feel ashamed of myself. What was I thinking. I think it was the peer pressure. That was years ago though. If you're gonna wear it, wear it properly and for Allah. Don't be two-faced. p.s. There is no compulsion in religion. There is a difference between being assertive reminders and forcing. To me force is when someone threatens to kill you for doing or not doing something. Therefore, I doubt that they were literally forcing her. Some people don't know how to advise. All of us have done that at some point, but just because you don't like how something is said, also does not mean that you stop wearing hijab or only wear it when they're around.
  • Historically there were women in Arabia during the early days of Islam that were not covered (Khalifa Umar bin Khattab'period). These days women are walking around half naked or nearly naked on the streets and some actually wear more clothing at the beach than on the streets. I do not think that it is just to bicker about the way a sister wears a hijab but we should congratulate her and have some patience with her because if we had to cover our navel to our knee all the time would we do it? Also imagine how much stares and oppression that some sisters get for wearing hijab and the last thing they need is brothers making them feel bad too. Education is the answer ~!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There is no compulsion in religion so let them be aware of the ayats that pertain to hijab and then it is their responsability. If she is wearing a hijab but stripping in a bar, then if she is in fact a muslima obviously she is not a good one!!!!! A brother should not be in that bar anyway but if he was maybe he could help the sister get a better job if she needed money that badly. We as men have our lower natures ruling our selves and women are following our examples we like to see naked women, we turn our eyes from our wives in hijab to look at girls in mini skirts and we think that that the muslim women are not aware of what we do. Another thing is that in the middle east record producers mostly men are helping women in sexy clothing become superstar singers everytime you turn around and some of their music videos are worse than non muslim music videos in terms of being overly sexy. So if a sister is wearing a hijab when most of the actresses and musicians on TV are not lets give her some credit and with patience and understanding help her to overcome what her shortcoming is. As long as we guys prefer the women of the world (if you know what I mean) to the women of the next world and we let our sexual natures rule our lives we will not find many women respecting us. On the contrary if we truly feared God and conducted our lives accordingly women would respect us even if they did not agree with us. Mind you wearing a hijab does not make someone a muslima and if a muslima a hijab is not what determines piety or at least it is not exclusively a sign of piety in Islam. Many muslim women do not wear hijab at all because it is not part of the practice of their family/culure and some wear it kind of half stepping because they think that or they are told by other muslim women that men do not want women in full hijab or if they do they are not nice men but only oppressive cruel men. Hey I am not making this up-Girls actually say this! Another problem exist which is muslim men who say they are muslim but realy destroy the reputation of Islam by their actions. Then there are the drug dealers (guys) walking around in traditionally Islamic head dress and some go furher than that with clothing, and there are those who say they are muslim and believe in strange things that are so foreign to Islam it makes you wonder. The solution is for muslims to be muslims sincerely and let the non muslims know what Islsm is an is not. Then common sense will tell them that people are people whether male or female or muslim or non muslim there are good and bad people everywhere. No matter what no one will succeed in making Islam go away or make it look bad to the extent that it will dissapear so lets concentrate on correcting our own selves and others will notice the difference by our examples.
  • Although some sisters due cover because of cilture that is because they are also ignorant of the religion. Islam is not based on opinion, or choice. That is why we have the Quran and sunnah so that we know what we can and can't do. The prophet )saw) said the ummah will be divided into 73 groups, 72 of which will go to hell, when asked which is the group that is going to heaven he said those who are upon what I am upo and what my companion (sahaba) are upon. So whoever thinks that they can change religion simply because times have changed or fashion in the west has changed should repent and turn to Allah, their reward is with him and not the disbelievers. After all why should a muslim care about the opinion of those who going to hell? Yes it's hard. Of course it is, Islam came as something weird and it will end as somethign weird, but we must remember that we are doing it in search of Allahs pleasure since he is the only one that can punish or reward us. I became a mUslim 3 years ago, and yes it's a jopurney and I thank Allah Subhanotalah for giving me enough time to improve myself. Islam is submission, it's not choosing to do what you agree with and leave what you don't. Allah tells us we will be tested, are we goignt o be like like Iblis/ shaytan/ the devil who was the first to disobey Allah when commanded to prostrate? what if these sisters die tomorrow? even if they don't change or improve it is out responsibility to let them know what they are doing is wrong because we will be asked about it. It's wrong for them to go out as the prophet (saw) said dress but as if naked, messing up the reputation for other modest sisters. I didn't go from being an all american girl in mini skirts to my abaya and niqab to have men holla at me like before. Allah has put the muslima in high place full of dignity and respect, so are these men and women to put our status down? I think over all people today are too concerned with this life and on't fer the day of judgement enough or don't believe they will die years from now when they plan on improving. It's sad to see that usually the religious and practicing and truly knowledgable muslims are those who convert than the ones that were raised here. ZI come from a life outside islam and did EVERYTHING and I can honestly say Islam is BETTER if only everyone could see. Why is it that peopel who are raised as muslims don't see? I struggle evryday giving my family dawah, the idea of them burning in heel kills me, But Allah guides whiom he wants. Brothers and sisters if you feel that you can't obey Allah in anything and everything because the devil temps you with the opposite sex, with fashion, peer pressure etc then leave this country. We must live this life as the prophrt (saw) said, as a traveler. If you are just passing by a town why would you buy a house there? So if we are just passing by this life on our way hoem which is heaven why are we planning so much for out future here and now the future of judgement day?
  • "...a hijabi woman who ws not very religious?" i don't know what is or isnt religious, so let me make that clear up front. i HAVE seen hijabis who wear extremely fashionable,sparkly, dazzling, colorful, tight, and very beautiful clothing/make-up/scarves/jewelry, etc....i couldnt help but think "wow she looks beautiful" or "LOVE the way she wears her hijab" also made me think of when i read in the koran (an interpretation, so i'm not an expert) the whole modesty thing and how a woman shouldnt draw attention to seemed wearing hijab so beautifully, feminine and fashionable was a contradiction of what it was supppose to do?? dont know if this helps, but this is the only time my curiosity regarding hijab was piqued
  • I am no a Muslim, but I think that to wear the hijab is to respect it - if a girl had no reverence for it, surely she wouldn't bother at all? As to modesty,that's a matter of intent and one blessing of a western society where faces are seen, is that its pretty obvious if an individual is immodest in their soul; brash or proud or self involved. To quote another religion, all things are pure to the pure in heart. The clothing displays modesty but doesn't create it and two girls could be dressed identically with completely different intent. The most irreligious woman I saw in a hijab was actually in the full black burqa. She was bustling younger Muslim women up the road in Lewes High Street in England and she was being aggressive and impatient and bossy and nasty. She swanned into a shop like she was wearing a truck instead of a robe, completely aware that she was aiming for small gaps and brushing people out of the way. She seemed to be looking down on everybody. THAT is immodest, to my understanding.
  • I have never seen a Muslimah wearing a hijab but not respect it. If she were disrespectful she would not be wearing the hijab in the first place. "They abuse their privilages and responsibilites as a modest Hijabi," where has you seen this? References please.
  • If a sister is wearing Hijab but not respecting it then she's not respecting herself, is not likely to get respect from others and is damaging the respect that other sisters get from observing proper hijab.
