16-03-06, 10:44 AM
After some very good suggestions from some of the brothers and sisters in the counselling room, this post is brought to you...
We want to know why you wear the Hijab?
What gives you the strength to do so?
Do you understand the other sisters when they say that it's hard?
Despite all the negativity, fear and intimidation, how to you manage day in, day out to still have it on?
Let this post be a kind present from all the sisters who are strong with their Hijab to those sisters who have not yet worn it or are a little shaky when it comes to the Hijab.
So lets hear it? What do you gals have to say?

Dearest Outspoken respected sisters and brothers, Salam alyakum.
I am one of those sisters that you would refer to as not being strong with my hijab due to the fact that I took it off 3 months ago.
Dispite my reasons for doing so I think there are a few fundamental aspects that one should realy look in to before taking the step of wearing the hijab or even continuing to do so.
1) WITH OUT INNER COMMITTMENT, THE OUTER APPEARANCE IS
2) YOU MUST ALSO BE PREPARED TO ACCEPT THE ADDED RESPONSIBILITY OF BEING A VISIBLE REPRESENTATIVE OF ISLAM.
3) WHEN WEARING THE HIJAB IT SHOULD MAKE YOU FEEL PURIFIED AND PROTECTED AS IF YOUR IN ALLAHS COMPANY.
I very passionately believe in these 3 fundamentals. And thus feel that if there is a flaw in any of these things whilest you are wearing the hijab or considering to do so, stop and revaluate the sittuation you are in, address it, lay your cards on the table so to speak. Cause you will only be fooling the people around you not your self and especialy not Allah.
So I guess, in response to your poll I would agree that a women should wear the hijab when she is ready!

plz i dont want to offend anyone when i say this, but i think we are starting to use strength and world issues and other things a little bit to easily as an excuse for not putting on the hijab.
Whether we want to do it or not WE MUST it is an obligation, i spose in comparison none of us really want to change dirty nappies but it is our duty to our child to do so. Well it is out duty to ALLAH to wear hijab.
i do think that a parent should start a girl at maybe 7 or 8 to be able to get her used to it.
ive heard people say im to young, i wanna get married first, i cant wear it because of work, none of my firends do so y should i, lets be really honest with ourselves are we that obnoxious or stuck up that we cant cover up for the sake of ALLAH swt
WHAT IF you die tomorrow what would ur excuse be.
every day we make decisions about what to wear what is so hard about adding a few pieces of material to our wardrobes.
LETS STOP MAKING EXCUSES AND FULFIL OUR OBLIGATIONS

The hijab is not just a few picese of clothing that you put on for the sake of Allah, it goes beyond that and may be if sisters relased that, sisters would not make the hijab look like a joke.
There is a reason as to why Allah has told the beliveing women to wear the hijab. Not just to cover there buety, as a matter of fact women with the scarf are just as buetyful as any other women. Wearing the hijab is making a promise to Allah that you will follow his comands, and represnt him in a manner that is of highest of standards.
And so if a women or a young girl is not there yet, thus praying 5 times a day, fasting, having manners which is in accordace to ur deen, why should she be placed in a position where she is told that she must put it on because it is an obligation. So are all the other farits.
Please sisters don't put the scarf on thinking that this is the first steping stone in plactising ISLAM, there are many other farits that you should try and perfect, before you represent our deen, especialy in a kafar soecity.
Would'nt all muslim women want to see the hijab be represnted in the right manner that Allah meant for. It is not a fashion statement, it is not just the covering of the skin, it is not something that you just wear, there is a meaning behined it and a change of life style to which you must adhire to when you put it on.
Not just wearing it and ridding in cars and hoping to pick up boys, or wearing it so attractivly and going to Bankstown Square and trying to flirt with the opposite sex etc ect ect.............
Think before you do it............., because it means alot..............
Its not a joke or something you can have fun with, it is our deen that you are represnting.
i put the scarf on 7 months ago cause every1 told me it is so easy and that ill love it
but i hate it with a passion sometimes i wish i could turn back time or just take it off but i promised myself that once its on it never comes off and alhumdulilah iv stuck to its been very hard and depressive but thats my sacrifice to allah and even though ii dont like it im getting use to it and i truely believe that there is no such thing as being ready i used to say that but if i didnt get that sign from allah (long story: i had an accident)then i know that it would have never came on i was and still am a girly girl but it was hard because my make up my hair and my fancy clothes were my favourite things and when i put on a scarf i had to stop that i cried for months but i still kept it on but it proves that i wasnt ready but i put it on

wow, now that's a rare find.
Tabarakallah, how often do we hear stories of struggle, passion, courage and commitment like that - not on TV, not in the movies, not for a lover and not for this dunya.
But for the sake of Allah.
Be proud of yourself sister. May Allah accept your deeds and count you as a righteous slave because you're an inspiration
Had we all struggled like that, we'd be somewhere else.
Alhamduallah ive now had been wearing the hijab for like 4 years now, but at first when i had put it on, i found it really difficult. I recall walking through the corridors of the school and people staring at me of surprised thinking that i would never put it on as i was a fun outgoing dancing girl who loved dancing to the passion...I felt the teachers changed towards me, felt like the whole world was against me except my muslim peers who supported me and told me you have joined the group cause they also wore the hijab....Another thing what i have notice by putting on the hijab...i was no longer being harrased by guys anymore and was more respected then ever Alhamduallah..Let me tell ya sisters its the best feeling to have being respected by guys...
However now Alhamduallah im much happier with it on then without it cause i realise girls with hijab on are more beautiful then girls without it, its all about modesty subhnallah where Allah SWT is protecting us from Evil men looking at us in bad ways.
However for the girls without hijab on.. May Allah SWT guide you to the right path inshallah and inshallah meet in paradise Firdos cause surely this life is temperary and the hereafter is for ever lasting.
i UNDERSTand how much some females are not used to wearign the hijab lets say when they are a teen or teenager, because tis a strong commitment and deed that she has to carry on for her life. i personally think that it is our parents' responsibilty to guide us to the straight path, isnt that the role that ALLah has givent o all parents. A responsibility that they must withhold and succeed in. My mother has raised me with the hijab and becuase of dat i am used to it. i have been wearign it since 1st grade, im nat tryin to brag here im tryint o make a point: parents' should teach their daughters about the hijab, and tell them what it is, from a yougn age. If parents do not, and you reach puberty it is the girl's responsibility to do what she gotta do. Learn about islam and the purpose of hijab. educate yourself and make a decision.
