il HijjaB il Cool
I recently did another freelance cartoon that i enjoyed drawing. It shows the different hijab styles. The "modern" shakira/ britney hijab and the right muslimah hijab.
Recently i feel there is a misconception of the concept of hijab. You find a girl with her boyfriend holding hands, exchanging kilmat fi bo2 ba3d :S.
Missing prayers that is IF they pray at all. I see all sorts of styles the funniest to me is the one with the high boots and short skirt! lol come on girlies?
Fakhdeh = 3awra
Oh and there is another new style of hijjab where the girls raise there hair up so high under the hijjab.(the Camel-Hump Look).
Or even add weird things under it to make it puff up and they put the hijjab on just enough to cover the Jabal on their head and ofcourse there is always the perfectly blowdryed "ghurra" bangs that shows.
It's not just about covering skin its also about not wearing something so tight that it seems like it was sprayed on you. It is not about bringing attention to yourself.
I am not in a place to give lectures to anyone. But it is also my duty as a muslim to deliver this message to the world.
Hijab is not just a piece of cloth on your head. It is an honor. It is a flag telling the world you are a muslim. Your actions now represent ISLAM. So please think twice before you become the reason people have more and more misconceptions about hijab.
The clothing must be thick enough so as not to show the color of skin it covers or the shape of the body.
The Prophet (SAW) said that in later generations of his ummah there would be, "women who would be dressed but naked and on top of their head (what looks like) camel's humps. Curse them, for they are cursed." (Muslim)
" صنفان من أهل النار لم أرهما بعد : رجال معهم سياط كأذناب البقر يضربون بها الناس ، ونساء كاسيات عاريات مائلات مميلات على رؤوسهن كأسنمة البخت المائلة ، لا يدخلن الجنة ولا يجد ريحها ، وإن ريحها ليوجد من مسيرة كذا وكذا
May God help us all always to live up to the name of ISLAM.
