Have you ever thought about how much time you likely waste deciding what to wear in the morning? It’s probably made you late to school or work more times than you can count.
We waste so many precious moments concerning ourselves with frivolous details. An outfit will not change the world, it probably won’t even change your day.
This is not to say that fashion isn’t important, as it has an immense impact on culture and, in turn, the direction of society.
Indeed, fashion is where art, culture and history intersect. If we look at the 1960s, for example, the way people dressed was very much a reflection of the counterculture movement and the anti-establishment sentiments of the era.

She walks down the street covered up from head to toe. Her many layers and loose clothing have you very confused. It’s warm outside. Most people are wearing shorts and t-shirts. Yet, you find this particular woman, going against the norm and sticking out from the rest. In America, where one is “free” to do, say, or even wear anything, why would a free woman choose to dress this way? It’s a logical question.
Dear sisters, do you know that so much of the whole world actually “wears Hijab?!” YES! The earth is surrounded by the atmosphere and ozone layer. Fresh fruits have peels on them. The sword is preserved in a sheath. An ink pen would dry without a cap. We put paperback and hardback covers on our books. A pen would be thrown away because it became dry and useless without its cap. An apple without a peel becomes rotten. A banana without a peel would change colors. And a woman is a beautiful flower which every one wishes to pick so she should cover herself with the beautiful hiijab. Subhan’Allah, the world is wearing hijab, what about you?
Yet another ‘ban the burqa’ debate on tv featuring 2 muslim women. It is good to see the moderator takes a fairly neutral stance, and doesnt favour one side over the other. Once again, we see an uncovered woman, Mona Eltahawy, with a distorted sense of reality try to force her personal opinions on the whole world, and it is great to see that she is completely dominated by a woman wearing a niqab. Hebah Ahmed not only dispells all of her false arguements, but also raises some important points that clearly make her the winner of this ‘ban the burqa’ debate.

The color most pleasing to Prophet Muhammad (Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) was green, while some said it was white. With respect to clothing, the Prophet (peace be upon him) encouraged men to wear white in numerous hadiths. Thus, according to the sunnah, it is preferred to wear white, as well as black and green. [Ibn Abidin, Radd al-Muhtar]
While wearing a green turban is not a specific sunnah, wearing green garments in general is from the sunnah, so one could wear a green turban to fulfill that.
It is important to note that the Prophet (Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) himself wore different types of clothing from different places, and of different colors and designs, not just one style or color, though there would be nothing wrong if one chose to did this.
Roberto Maroni: If the virgin appears wearing a veil on all her pictures, how can you ask me to sign on a hijab ban law?
It’s Amazing to see the Mother of Jesus Mary always wearing the Muslim Womens Hijab in every picture that people try to paint of her. That must tell you something, it’s an obvious in your face fact that the blessed mother of Jesus, She definitely wore Hijab.
Muslim women are also so blessed to be following her footsteps not only in the Hijab and her modest dress and behavior but also in her Worship, because it’s also another obvious fact that Mary didn’t Worship her Un-bornand then born Son Jesus but she Worshiped the one who Created Jesus, God Almighty Allah. Say Alhamdulilah! (All Thanks to God).

The Hijab Diaries: Part I | Part II
Because I started wearing my hijab in the beginning of this past summer, a thought that was always in the back of my mind was how people in school would react to the change I’d made. How would acquaintances and friends treat me? Would the people I had previously had problems with mock me?
