  • i do.. why? because Allah has stated so.. there are a lot of reasons why.. give it medical, technical, spiritual, sanitary, sosial reasons, etc etc.. it's hard to explain even one single point in writing just enough to get the intended message across.. yes, at times i do feel like taking it off.. when n why..? when people of the same religion treat me badly.. and it happens often no matter what the gender is.. it makes me question and think: - "what went wrong?" - "is it me, or is it the person, but it definitely could never be the religion.." - "why are they doing this and that?" When at home, i wouldn't say i took it off.. i'd rather say i didn't put it on.. === edit === In the pic below, i'm the one on the right-hand side. The one with glasses. Btw, am from Kuala Lumpur, and yes, that's an F1 car in the background. That's my friend on the left-hand side. i'd say she dresses much more better than me. P/S: Dont' get me wrong up there. i was complaining about the ethical behaviour and not religious behaviour. === ===
  • Yes, His commands do not put a burden on anyone for the Creator Knows the creation Best. People in hellfire want a glass of water. It will be hottest there. The less the skin is covered the more it gets hot. Bedouins in the deserts aren't half-naked. This is why culturally even their guys cover their heads--to keep them cool. No one is saying wear a wool or leather hijab in the heat. Wear something that is one-layered, light weight, which isn't see-through. Choose a fabric that breaths rather than polyester or silk. We can't play games with this way of life by picking and choosing what suits our desires. Hijab isn't just for when you're feeling cold and it's not for hiding a bad hair-do either.Keep wearing hijab for Allah because Paradise has a price.
  • Since I started wearing my hijab, I have never ever considered taking it off. From my point of view if you are considering taking it off, you are not ready to wear it. Allah does not force us to do religiously acceptable things, whatever we choose to do is for us to show our devotion to Allah, the Allknowing. He knows our thoughts, so there is no reason to wear a hijab if you want to take it off, your hear is not in it and Allah knows this. For me hijab has never been a burden, it is a blessing from Allah to keep me safe from the evil eye. There is always the pressure to be modern and wear small clothes to look "beautiful", but tempting men may give a woman pleasure for a while. What happens on the day of Judgement when Allah asks what have we done to please Him? A few years ago I used to consider wearing hijab and burqa a bit old-fashioned, but I see successful muslim sisters wearing hijabs proudly and being respected for what they are. What comes to the hot weather, it is a test, not a burden. It's the same as fasting during Ramadan when it's hot - would you consider not fasting only because you are thirsty?
  • I'd post this in a question, but I'd rather post it here: Why do you wear a hijab? I'm honestly curious.
  • Yes, I wear hijab (but not all of the time). When studying Islam, I read the ayah and the interpretations (tafseer & ahadeeth) that commanded the woman to cover herself. Do I ever feel like taking it off? Yes, and I do. I am a weak creature. I don't like confrontation -at all. In the States, I sometimes feel like there is just too much bias against Muslims. Wearing the hijab doesn't make things easy. When I feel threatened, I remove it. However, when I travel outside of the US, I usually wear it comfortably.
  • A few sisters talk mainly about their hijabs here: http://shahadanet.jeeran.com/a16.htm http://shahadanet.jeeran.com/a17.htm http://shahadanet.jeeran.com/a18.htm http://shahadanet.jeeran.com/a19.htm you might find something interesting/informative.
  • yes i do wear my hijab.i wear it because your suppose to if your a christain or a muslim in the bible and quran it says a women should aways cover themself to keep men from lusting them.and yes i do feel like talking it off somtimes because i am a black women and as many black women to do they get there hair done and i just somtimes want to show it off,but its just something about wheni but it on i feel strong proud like i can do anything me personally i just think and know allah wants whats best for use and its better then going to the hell fire.
  • well...it's comforting to know ignorance abounds in all religions. I not longer feel wierd about leaving christianity, because Islam supports my decision to leave.
  • I think this video addresses all the points raised in your question Wearing hijab Why and why not Desire to remove it An imposed burden Does it feel hot Do you feel forced to wear it They sound quite happy, free, positive, confident and articulate. ..
  • i personally wore the hijab because i was nagged to do so, i respect it and i understand it however i dont like it, i dont see it as nessacary, i wear it in a stylish way as possible becasue as much as some might say it doesnt hold you back, it does, maybe it holds you back from wrong things too but many times ive applied to work even in muslim countries and i have been turned down because of it, yes at the end of the day god and paradise are more important than a job, but i find it really hard to deal with :( apologies if i have insulted anyone i dont mean to at the end of the day i am muslim too and wouldnt change that at all.
  • just a comment: i'm not muslim, but i have worn a hijab a number of times (long story, don't ask) and i actually find it quite comfortable in hot weather. they are made to be light. if anything, it protects your head from the sun. even as a non-muslim, i can't really think of many situations in which a hijab would be a "burden." i know many girls who wear the hijab (who *are* muslim) and they play sports and etc... no problem. people don't realize what it's actually like unless they do it, i think.
  • Dear sister i would like to point to the fact that Mother Marry is illustrated with a hijab on even in christianity. Further more, we all know that jewish women in the time of the tyrant pharoah all wore hijab and covered their body.The ? is supposed 2 be y didnt Jesus or Moses (Peace Be Upon Them) oppose "hijab" if it were lessening or degrading or a sign of oppressing women? Surely, if Moses ( Peace Be Upon Him ) didnt oppose it and then Jesus ( Peace Be Upon Him )did the same; there must be some kind of wisdom or moral use of the hijab.Nuns in a church cover themselves ,and i bring this up to point to the fact that hijab isnt an Islamic or Arabic tradition; but a moral tradition. Hijab is a way 4 women to protect their privacy ( body ) from the lust of men. It is disgusting and grose to even think of people yanking or having sexual fantacies about u or any other lady; but becuz boys see how " hot " or " sexy " u or any other lady might be, it is disappointing to admit to the reality. The above clearifies what i mean when i say " Hijab is a way 4 women to protect their privacy( body ) from the lust of men ". U bring up the weather saying that if it wear hot u dont think God would burden women with Hijab. Well, if we follow ur logic women would walk naked tommorow hiding behind the " weather " excuse.
  • in most middle eastern countries, a woman can be arrested for failure to dress properly
  • as salam alaikum everyone muslim or non-muslim. as a muslim convert it has taken time to learn everything.i became muslim before marry my husband from pakistan.I know to wear hijab when praying but i didnt know if it was obligatry.my pakistani in-laws are religous but they dont wear hijab.i questioned myself well maybe if they dont it means its not obligatry but i read quran more and the life of mohammad p.b.u.h.what i never know intill i read the prophet p.b.u.h said that woman should only show there hands and face.so what does that say?my pakistani in-laws young lady show there arms to.when i go to weddings it feels like they show there daughters off.if u know what i mean.only a couple of girls wear hijab and im proud of them.anyways back to what i was saying.hijab to me has brung many good things.i feel so protected in my life.1 thing still i do not wear hijab at work.i feel not ready yet.anyways i cover everything and wear a scarf over my bossoms and just tie hair in a bun.anyways when i work in petrol station.like now cos its hot 9 out 10 girls are near enough naked.when there filling up there cars they dont see what i see.men drawling over them with there dirty minds.some woman love this atention but when there old it will go and they will get sad.thats what this world is about being beautiful 24/7.woman are pressured to be this way.my respect goes out to everyone wearing of not wearing hijab.May ALLAH help thoughs how need strength.sorry for any spelling mistaKEs im disleqic.lol.XXXX
  • Yes i wear the hijab at the moment but i want to take it off because i always get made fun off and it makes me feel unconfident and insecure and paranoid that people are laughing at me therefore i tend not to go out and i don't like living in fear. However, of course i want to please Allah and not be sent to hell however i believe that wearing the hijab does not necessarily make you a good person becuase you can be that without wearing it and you can go to heaven even if you don't wear it because if you do other good deeds such a praying then you can still go to heaven what do you think?. i wdo also really respect and admire peopla who wear the hijab as it makes them strong people because people deal with hassle due to it but still continue to wear it.
  • i don't feel taking it off. actually, i think its cool to be different, to be unique so i don't care what others think !
  • I am a Muslim woman, but I don't wear it unless I'm praying. I believe in dressing modestly because in Islam, everyone knows you aren't allowed to dress like hookers. I wouldn't if we were allowed anyway. I have reletives who wear it and reletives that don't. I pray when I can, and I follow the Ten Commandments. The thing is I can't read or speak in Arabic, so reading the Quran would be difficult. I fast too. Besides what if there was a girl wearing the Hijab,(hypethetical here)and she wasn't following other laws and rules in the Quran? I beleive it depends on the person.
  • It`s not Allah who is posing the burden but the men of Islam who care not a fig of the feelings of the woman.
  • Never presume to know what Allah thinks.
  • Islam only requires that you dress modestly and cover your cleavage. Anything else is simply medieval Middle East culture and nothing specifically to do with Islam. To Illustrate, Druize, Zoroastrian and Jewish women all wear veils and did so well before the birth of the Prophet(pbuh). The Hijab comes from a by-gone era when women were the property of men. This disrespectful attitude is out of touch with modern reality and out of line with the teachings. Muslim women wear Hijab because of the insecurity of male leaders. The excuse they give is that it protects women from rape. This effectively exonerates men from responsibility for self-control. In some cultures women are actually punished for being raped! That is the background culture of the Hijab. How can this stupidity end? Only with women sticking up for themselves. Western women standing up for themselves brought them the vote and if enough of us say "no" loud enough the horrible hijab will be in the bin of history next to the chastity belt.
  • besides - some men tell me they find the hijab sexy - so that defeats the point anyway throw it in the bin

  • I just started wearing one. Anything that is worth anything requires dedication. I understand the "hot" factor of the Hijab but the rewards from wearing the hijab far out way any of the discomforts. Try to see the positives of fulfilling Allah's wishes and whenever you feel discouraged or uncomfortable remember the reward Allah will give you for your dedication and determination. Being a Muslimah is not easy especially in rural areas. Pray for strength.At least we don't have to worry about bad hair days :) Peace and Mercy of Allah be upon you.
  • there is no specific surah in the quran that specifically tels a muslim to cover her HEAD...however this is a silly issue..with all of the things wrong with islam..a woman choosing to cover or not cover her head is her own business
  • So you're telling me you can say Mohammad got his information from an angel,Gabriel, but it wasn't from Allah? So how did Gabriel get the Quran? From a newspaper? I don't appreciate the disrespect as I had asked you to not refer to me as doll, therefore I will no longer respond to your comments. Mohammad being illiterate is not propoganda. Read this: 007.157 "Those who follow the messenger, the unlettered Prophet, whom they find mentioned in their own (scriptures),- in the law and the Gospel;- for he commands them what is just and forbids them what is evil; he allows them as lawful what is good (and pure) and prohibits them from what is bad (and impure); He releases them from their heavy burdens and from the yokes that are upon them. So it is those who believe in him, honour him, help him, and follow the light which is sent down with him,- it is they who will prosper."
  • Anyone who answers this question take a minute to observe the interaction of me and a very rude person named mystical. Read the comments and tell me what you think. I'm curious to know if he was as disrespectful as I think. I'm not interested if you agree with either him or me on the issue, I just am in awe someone could be so disrespectful. I need some feedback, leave me a comment. Muslimahs out there,how would you have dealt with it?
  • yes i wear the hijab , because this is the religion i chose , because i love it and because i love the way it makes me fell no i don't feel like taking it off at all hot !! what is hot ... Islam is stronger than that .. Muslim used to fight while they were fasting i live in country where it's goes up to 120.2 degree Fahrenheit and i didn't stop me
  • It's written in the Qur'an for women to war hijab. Do you not want to obey the rules of the Qur'an?
  • I am a revert of 5 years and have been wearing hijab for 2 years now. I do take it off only in one situation which could be considered as wrong. When I am with my family even when my little cousin who is male is around I leave it off, our culture cousins don't marry and I remember clearly the day he was born so I fear no risk there. Also it's cooler in the summer now then it was when I wore mini-skirts and tank tops.
  • For the ones who ware Hijab, where in the Quran does God order you to cover your Hair? As we know, to be a true submitter (Moslem), ones have to submit to God only by following his laws (Original Quran, Bible, and Torah). And if you associate the Hijab to God's Laws, you have to have your prove from the Book, or you are associating Lies to God (the greatest Sin of all)
  • May peace be upon all of you whos searching for answers.Praise to the lord.Bismillahirramanirrahim.First of all,yes I do wear the hijab,Ive just started it a few weeks ago.Now that I have it on,I dont have any intentions of taking it off,but sometimes the whispers of Shaitan do get the best of me.But Alhamdulillah,until now I have never taken it off('cept when Im home alone,or wif other sisters).I wear it because I want to please our Lord.Its just like when we're trying to please other human beings,surely we would do things that would please them wouldnt we?For example,a daughter would send flowers to her mother to please her mother,or a worker would invite his boss to lunch to please the boss(if he's luck,he might even get a promotion).I wear the hijab as I wish to please God and in hopes that He will place me in paradise with other mu'minun.InsyaAllah.I have faith in Islam,in oneness o God,and I trust His words and His sayings (Holy Quran).Why do I trust God?Because I believe that He is the Creator of All.The Almighty.And surely a Creator knows Best 'bout His creations. Just like an inventer of a machine would know best about his invention better than anyone else.Ask Bill Gates about Microsoft and Im sure He has alll the answer.As for hijab,there is a few verse in Quran which commands the women to wear a veil etc.It can be found in Surah Al-Ahzab and An-Nurr,for give me if I am mistaken.So,God has commanded women to put on their veils...Surely He has His reasons behind this.As a human being,I have no right to claim that my knowledge is any better than others,especially compared to Allah,the ALl-Knowing.But He has also grnted me wif a brain and heart,to search for answers,to think and to understand alhamdulillah.I can give a few answers insyaallah.And I think its mostly because God knows how it is not easy for a man to control his lust especially towards the oppsite sex. So He asked the women to cover themselves in order to make it easy for men to control their lust.Imagine a woman in bikini,a woman well covered and a man or a raper trapped in a room.Who do you think will most likelyget raped first?...My dear brothers and sister..GOd has grant us with brains.Think for a second...Its all logic isnt it?Maybe if all the women were to cover themselves properly,insyaAllah,there wont be as many crimes (mainly rape etc) as today.. And I do prefer people to judge me for who I am inside,evryone always says that its the thought,the heart that counts.Its how we are on the inside that matters,not how we look on the outside.Right?.Cause that wouldnt be fair,to anybody.And God is Fair.Besides,the outside beauty would fade sooner or later,but the inside beauty..It stays on forever,insyaAllah.:-D.Sisters and brothers...would we prefer for people to love us for what we are?or how we look like?...Wallahu'alam..:-)
