Happy World's Hijab Day to my Muslim sisters!

Every 1st of February is the official World's Hijab day! Happy World's Hijab Day my sisters!

Let's stay modest.....Masha Allah.



    1. May Allah forgive you.

  2. "On the one hand, any woman who wears the hijab must, by the logic of secular reason, be oppressed. On the other, if she makes too much of the rhetoric of choice to justify her wearing it, she misunderstands precisely what the rhetoric is for. The logic of choice, of the market, of the right to pick between competing products cannot be used to justify the decision to wear what one likes, if one chooses something that indicates a desire not to play the game."

  3. if we are to allow wearing the hijah, please specify the color. Black is a no no. To the Chinese black is associated with death. Can a patient request that he or she not be taken care for by nurse wearing black hijab. The colour of the hijab should be in harmony with the colour of the nurse uniform...idiots

  4. “O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to draw their cloaks close round them (when they go abroad). That will be better, so that they may be recognised and not annoyed. Allah is ever Forgiving, Merciful.” (Quran 33:59)

  5. Hijab does not equal Islam. For example, Senegal is around 90% Muslim, but women wear their hair uncovered, or an African headscarf which does not cover all the hair.

  6. i am a muslim n i have been wearing the hijab for the past 12 yrs...since i was 12.


    i feel protected
    i feel dignified
    i feel closer to God
    ppl around me respect me more
    Guys know that i am a no-nonsense person
    Only the good i attract
    i have not experienced any sort of dirty stares, unwelcomed touches in public transport or anything ever.
    People give way to me when i walk :)
    i match my hijab to watever i wear
    so many colors,designs n styles...i never get bored
    i dont hv to do my hair
    i dont hv to carry a comb
    i feel special as i stand out from other women, thus i noe that im special :)
    i feel happy and satisfied that this is a simple thing i can do for my beautiful religion,Islam.

    its a little too hot smtimes.
    i get ocassional headaches.

    Thats it.Honestly, thats all abt it! :)

    In response to ..
    'but I feel sad not to see womens hair, as it makes a person look very nice to see their hair and all it´s beauty....'

    Alot have askd me abt revealing my hair and im sure my fellow hijabis wld hv the same experience as well.
    i came across the following in an article and since then i say this to every1 else.

    Women are regarded as diamonds in Islam.We are very special and one of God's dearest creations. You cant leave diamonds on the streets for every1 to see.Its very special and expensive.Only the deserving will have the rights to see, touch n own it.Likewise, women cant be left for every1 to see.Only the rightful are allowed to.That is their father,sons,brothers..etc(men whom she cant marry) and the husband.

    this is one of the best ive heard.share it arnd.i hope ive shared enuff knowledge :)

  7. Zainab you are drunk! Hijaab is NOT an ordinance in the Quran.

    The **COMPLETE** dress code in the Quran is given in 24:31 and it does **NOT** translate to hijaab.

    Those who advocate hijaab as an ordinance of Islam, refer to 33:59 and interpret it with hadith which is nothing beyond fabrication and lies.

    33:59 also doesn't translate to Hijaab. Moreover the CONTEXT of 33:59 makes it highly conditional.
    "God Alone, Quran Alone"

  8. As a man was passing the elephants, he suddenly stopped, confused by the fact that these huge creatures were being held by only a small rope tied to their front leg. No chains, no cages. It was obvious that the elephants could, at anytime, break away from their bonds but for some reason, they did not.

    He saw a trainer nearby and asked why these animals just stood there and made no attempt to get away. “Well,” trainer said, “when they are very young and much smaller we use the same size rope to tie them and, at that age, it’s enough to hold them. As they grow up, they are conditioned to believe they cannot break away. They believe the rope can still hold them, so they never try to break free.”

    The man was amazed. These animals could at any time break free from their bonds but because they believed they couldn't, they were stuck right where they were.

  9. Veil is nothing but a symbol of liberating a women from unwelcoming gestures, responses, comments and acts. I feel more secure with my headscarf on and yes it tells the rest of the world that my body is my own business. It is my freedom to choose my dress code and yes I started wearing it by my own choice and I have recently completed my Med School with my veil on. The system oppresses me by putting a ban on my freedom. It's all in the mind and not in the piece of cloth I wear!

  10. Almost a decade ago I rebelled against family and societal dictates when I refused to cover my head up. I would have answered an emphatic Yes at the time. Perhaps because I have grown, and grown to respect individual choice a lot more, I am not very sure it is a sign of oppression anymore. Free will does include a choice of clothing eh? But of course, if a veil is an outcome of coercion I am likely to cry 'Oppression'. But when a woman embraces a religion or even a social order which necessitates a veil, it is best to support her choices, different though they may be from my own

  11. I love wearing hijab, it's become as normal to me as wearing a shirt. I don't see any problem with people wearing what they want to wear. The only problem is when it is mandatory or banned.

  12. Superb infographic. A silent revolution is taking place. Women across the world are rejecting an ideology which objectifies and sexualises them, which has the libertated for the pleasure of men, sexualised as a commodity and objectified as an asset. As opposed to liberation and a pseudo-feminism which associates sexual liberation (often anarchically so) with freedom of the mind and spirit, women everywhere are coming to a realisation that it is precisely those societies which do the most harm and have the greatest hypocrisies.

  13. the veil is a symbol of oppression against the woman's body no matter oq say the contrary, it was created with the goal of covering the body considered sinful woman.

  14. Zainab...sometimes i think yiu are a little mad. Trouble is that for many Muslim women they are not given the OPTION to wear the hijab... or not. It's mandatory and if they rebel and wear more conventional clothing they risk beating... or worse.

    That, my friend, is oppression.

  15. And the reason why you support opression is what Zainab? I hope your co wives dont give you candidaitis and herpes with your hijab abi na jahib

  16. There is always a mentally disturbed person who defends nonsensical religious "demands"...Zainab is one of them

    1. Zainab na u didnt know? She was once a patient in Damaturu Psychiatric hospital. Her Dr. is Mallam Shehu Musa. The Koran only states "covering your body modestly". It does NOT explicitly or implicitly mention covering the head of a woman. Such a conclusion has been drawn by so-called Moslem scholars who have basically put words into the mouth of God himself.

    2. Are you serious? No wonder....I have not read the Koran but read somewhere that it teaches to keep the face uncovered. One would suppose the niqab is contrary to its teaching.

  17. So Zainab is a survivor of mental illness, thats great. Salaam, great piece sister. Being a hijabi Muslim in this part of the world is not easy. Atleast their hostility towards hijab is unmasked. Wait till you enter the professional world and hear the passive hostility in the forms of demeaning, ignorant questions. Though, the questions asked do give us a chance to explain hijab to people who do not know much about it. Good luck on your job search :)

  18. So Zainab is not well, ayaaaa!!!

  19. But the last I checked, reverend sisters wear something pretty similar to the hijab na....make una take am easy o....loool

  20. Hahahahahaha...Zainab you always wake up your army of soldiers with posts like this....they all keep quiet until something like this is posted. Hmmmm, interesting
