    Ten Excuses Of Muslim Women Who Don't Wear Hijaab

    Salamz guys!!
    got this in my email to share with all of u here .. something to think about and a message and answers to several questions

    Excuse One: I'm not yet convinced (of the necessity) of hijaab.

    We then ask this sister two questions.

    One: Is she truly convinced of the correctness of the religion of Islam?
    natural answer is: Yes she is convinced for she responds "Laa ilaaha
    illallah!" (There is no god but Allah), meaning she is convinced of the
    aqeedah, and then she says: "Muhammadun rasoolullah!" (Muhammad is the
    Messenger of Allah), meaning by that that she is convinced of its
    or law (sharee'ah). Therefore, she is convinced of Islam as a belief
    and a law by which one governs and rules their life.

    two ;Is the hijaab then a part of Islamic Law (sharee'ah) and an

    If this sister is honest and sincere in her intention and has looked
    into the
    issue as one who truly wants to know the truth her answer could only be:
    For Allah ta'aala, Whose deity (Uloohiyyah) she believes in has
    wearing hijaab in His Book (Al-Qur'aan) and the noble Prophet ('alaihi
    wa salaam) whose message she believes in has commanded wearing the
    hijaab in
    his sunnah.

    What do we call a person who says they believe in and are content with
    correctness of Islam but who nonetheless does not do what Allah or His
    Messenger have ordered? Certainly they can in no way
    be described as those whom Allah speaks of in this aayah: The only
    saying of
    the faithful believers when they are called to Allah and His Messenger
    judge between them is that they say 'we hear and
    obey' and such are the successful. [Soorah An-Noor 24:51]

    In summary: If this sister is convinced of Islam, how then can she not
    convinced of its orders?

    Excuse Two: I am convinced of Islamic dress but my mother prevents me
    wearing it and if I disobey her I will go to the Fire.

    The one who has answered this excuse is the most noble of Allah's
    the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam) in concise and
    comprehensive words of wisdom: There is no obedience to
    the created in the disobedience of Allah.[Ahmed]

    The status of parents in Islam, especially the mother, is a high and
    one. Indeed Allah ta'aala has combined it with the greatest of matters,
    worshipping Him and His tawheed, in many aayaat.
    He stated: Worship Allah and join none with Him and do good to parents.
    [Soorah An-Nisaa 4:36] Obedience to parents is not limited except in one
    aspect, and that is if they order to disobedience of
    Allah. Allah said: But if they strive with you to make you join in
    with Me others that of which you have no knowledge, then obey them not.
    [Soorah Luqmaan 31:15] The lack of obedience to them
    in sinfulness does not prevent being good to them and kind treatment of
    Allah said afterward in the same aayah: But behave with them in the

    In summary: How can you obey your mother and disobey Allah, Who created
    and your mother?

    Excuse Three: My position does not allow me to substitute my dress for
    Islamic dress.

    This sister is either one or the other of two types: She is sincere and
    honest, or she is a slippery liar who desires to make a showy display of
    "hijaab" clamoring with colors to be "in line with
    the times" and expensive.

    We will begin with an answer to the honest and sincere sister. Are you
    unaware my dear sister, that it is not permissible for the Muslim woman
    leave her home in any instance unless her clothing meets the conditions
    Islamic hijaab (Hijaab shar'ee) and it is a duty of every Muslim woman
    know what they are? If you have taken the time and effort to learn so
    matters of this world how then can you be neglectful of learning those
    matters which will save you from the punishment of Allah and His anger
    death!!? Does Allah not say: Ask the people of remembrance (i.e.
    knowledgeable scholars) if you do not know. [Soorah An-Nahl 16:43].
    therefore, the requirements of proper hijaab.

    If you must go out, then do not do so without the correct hijaab,
    seeking the
    pleasure of Allah and the degradation of Shaitaan. That is because the
    corruption brought about by your going out adorned and "beautified" is
    greater than the matter which you deem necessary to go out for.

    My dear sister if you are really truthful in your intention and
    determined you will find a thousands hands of good assisting you and
    will make the matter easy for you! Is He not the One Who says: And
    fears Allah and keeps his duty to Him, He will make a way for him to get
    (from every difficulty) and He will provide him from sources he never
    imagine [Soorah At-Talaaq 65:2-3]?

    With regards to the 'slippery' one we say: Honor and position is
    determined by Allah ta'aala and it is not due to embellishment of
    and show of colors and keeping up with the trendsetters. It is rather
    due to
    obedience to Allah and His Messenger (sallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam) and
    holding to the pure law of Allah and correct Islamic hijaab. Listen to
    words of Allah: Indeed, the most honorable amongst you are those who are
    most pious. [Soorah Al-Hujuraat 49:35]

    In summary: Do things in the way of seeking Allah's pleasure and
    entering His
    Jannah and give less value to the high priced and costly objects and
    of this world.

    Excuse Four: It is so very hot in my country and I can't stand it. How
    I take it if I wore the hijaab?

    Allah gives an example by saying: Say: The Fire of Hell is more intense
    heat if they only understand. [Soorah At-Taubah 9:81]

    How can you compare the heat of your land to the heat of the Hellfire?

    Know, my sister, that Shaitaan has trapped you in one of his feeble
    ropes to
    drag you from the heat of this world to the heat of the Hellfire. Free
    yourself from his net and view the heat of the sun as a favor and not an
    affliction especially in that it reminds you of the intensity of the
    punishment of Allah which is
    many times greater than the heat you now feel. Return to the order of
    and sacrifice this worldly comfort in the way of following the path of
    salvation from the Hellfire about which Allah says: They will neither
    coolness nor have any drink except that of boiling water and the
    discharge of
    dirty wounds.
    [Soorah An-Naba' 78:24-25]

    In summary: The Jannah is surrounded by hardships and toil, while
    Hellfire is
    surrounded by temptations, lusts and desires.

    Excuse Five: I'm afraid that if I wear the hijaab I will put it off at
    another time because I have seen so many others do so!!

    To her I say: If everyone was to apply your logic then they would have
    the Deen in its entirety! They would have left off salaat because some
    be afraid of leaving it later. They would have left fasting in Ramadhan
    because so many are afraid of not doing it later, etc. Haven't you seen
    Shaitaan has trapped you in his snare again and blocked you from

    Allah ta'aala loves continuous obedience even if it be small or
    How about something that is an absolute obligation like wearing hijaab?!
    prophet (sallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam) said: The most beloved deed with
    is the consistent one though it be little.Why haven't you sought out the
    causes leading those people to leave off the hijaab so that you can
    them and work to keep away from them? Why haven't you sought out reasons
    causes to affirm truth and guidance until you can hold firm to them?

    Among these causes is much supplication to Allah (du'aa) to make the
    firm upon the Deen as did the prophet (sallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam).
    Also is
    making salaat and having mindfulness of it as Allah stated: And seek
    help in
    patience and the prayer and truly it is extremely heavy except for the
    believers in Allah who obey Allah with full submission and believe in
    promise of Jannah and in His warnings (Al-Khaashi'oon). [Soorah
    2:45] Other causes to put one upon guidance and truth is adherence to
    laws of Islam and one of them is indeed wearing the hijaab. Allah said:
    they had done what they were told, it would have been better for them
    would have strengthened their faith.
    [Soorah Al-Baqarah 2:66]

    In summary: If you hold tight to the causes of guidance and taste the
    sweetness of faith you will not neglect the orders of Allah after having
    to them.

    Excuse Six: If I wear the hijaab then nobody will marry me, so I'm going
    leave it off until then.

    Any husband who desires that you be uncovered and adorned in public in
    defiance of and in disobedience to Allah, is not a worthy husband in the
    first place. He is a husband who has no feeling to protect what Allah
    made inviolable, most notably yourself, and he will not help you in any
    to enter Al-Jannah or escape from the Hellfire. A home which is founded
    disobedience to Allah and
    provocation of His anger is fitting that He decree misery and hardship
    for it
    in this life and in the Hereafter. As Allah stated: But whosoever turns
    from My reminder (i.e. neither believes in the Qur'aan nor acts upon its
    teachings) verily for him is a life of hardship and We shall raise him
    blind on the Day of Resurrection. [Soorah Ta Ha 20:124]

    Marriage is a favor and blessing from Allah to whom He give whom He
    How many women who wear hijaab (mutahajibah) are in fact married while
    who don't aren't? If you were to say that
    ' being made-up and uncovered is a means to reach a pure end, namely
    marriage', a pure goal or end is not attained through impure and corrupt
    means in Islam. If the goal is honorable then it must necessarily be
    by pure and clean method. We say the rule in Islam is: The means are
    according to the rules of the intended goals.

    In summary: There is no blessing in a marriage established upon
    and corruption.

    Excuse Seven: I don't wear hijaab based on what Allah says: And proclaim
    grace of your Rabb [Soorah Ad-Dhuhaa 93:11] How can I cover what Allah
    blessed me with of silky soft hair and captivating beauty?

    So this sister of ours adheres to the Book of Allah and its commands as
    as they coincide with her personal desires and understanding! She leaves
    behind those matters when they don't please her. If this was not the
    then why doesn't she follow the aayah: And do not show off their
    except only that which is apparent [Soorah An-Noor 24:31] and the
    of Allah subhaanah: Tell your wives and your daughters and the women of
    believers to draw their cloaks all over their bodies [Soorah Al-Ahzaab

    With this statement my sister you have now made a shari'ah (law) for
    of what Allah ta'aala has strictly forbidden, namely beautification
    (at-tabarruj) and uncovering (as-sufoor), and the reason: Your lack of
    wanting to adhere to the order. The greatest blessing or favor that
    Allah has
    bestowed upon us is that of Eemaan (faith) and hidaayah (guidance) and
    them is the Islamic hijaab. Why then do you not manifest and talk about
    greatest of blessings given to you?

    In summary: Is there a greater blessing and favor upon the woman than
    guidance and hijaab?

    Excuse Eight: I know that hijaab is obligatory (waajib), but I will wear
    when Allah guides me to do so.

    We ask this sister on what plans or steps she will undertake until she
    accepts this divine guidance? We know that Allah has in His wisdom made
    cause or means for everything. That is why the sick take medicine to
    health, and the traveler rides a vehicle or an animal to reach his
    destination, and other limitless examples.

    Has this sister of ours seriously endeavored to seek true guidance and
    exerted the proper means to get it such as: Supplicating Allah sincerely
    He stated: Guide us to the Straight Path. [Soorah Al-Faatihah 1:6];
    company with the righteous good sisters - for they are among the best to
    assist her to guidance and to continue to point her to it until Allah
    her and increases her guidance and inspires her to further guidance and
    taqwaa. She would then adhere to the orders of Allah and wear the hijaab
    the believing women are commanded to wear.

    In summary: If this sister was really serious about seeking guidance she
    would have exerted herself by the proper means to get it.

    Excuse Nine: It's not time for that yet. I'm still too young for wearing
    hijaab. I'll do it when I get older and after I make Hajj!

    The Angel of Death my sister, is visiting and waiting at your door for
    order of Allah ta'aala to open it on you at any moment in your life.
    said: When their term comes, neither can they delay it nor can they
    it and hour (or a moment). [Soorah Al-An'aam 7:34]. Death my sister
    discriminate between the young or the old and it may come while you are
    this state of great sinfulness disobedience, fighting against the Lord
    Honor with your uncovering and shameless adornment. My sister, you
    race to obedience along with those others who race to answer the call of
    Allah tabaaraka wa ta'aala: Race with one another in hastening towards
    forgiveness from your Lord and Paradise the width whereof is as the
    width of
    the heavens and the earth. [Soorah Al-Hadeed 57:21]

    Sister, don't forget Allah or He will forget you by turning His mercy
    from you in this life and the next. You are forgetting your own soul by
    fulfilling the right of your soul to obey Allah and proper worship of
    Allah stated about the hypocrites (Al-Munaafiqoon): And be not like
    those who
    forgot Allah and He caused them to forget their own selves. [Soorah
    59:19] My sister wear the hijaab in your young age in opposition to the
    sinful deed because Allah is intense in punishment and will ask
    you on the Day of Resurrection about your youth and every moment of your

    In summary: Stop presuming some future expectation in your life will
    occur!! How can you guarantee your own life until tomorrow?

    Excuse Ten: I'm afraid that if I wear Islamic clothing that I'll be
    as belonging to some group or another and I hate partisanship.

    My sister in Islam, there are only two parties in Islam, and they are
    mentioned by Allah Almighty in His Noble Book. The first party is the
    of Allah (hizbullah) that He gives victory to because of their obedience
    His commands and staying away from what He has forbidden. The second
    party is
    the party of the accursed Shaitaan (hizbush-Shaitaan) which disobeys the
    Merciful and increase corruption in the earth. When you hold tight to
    adhere to the commands of Allah, and among them is wearing the hijaab -
    then become a part of the successful party of Allah. When you beautify
    display your charms you are riding in the boat of Shaitaan and his
    and partners from among the hypocrites and the disbelievers and none
    could there be as friends.

    Don't you see how you are running from Allah and to the Shaitaan,
    filth for good? Run instead my sister to Allah and follow His way: So
    flee to
    Allah (from His Torment to His mercy). Verily I (Muhammad) am a plain
    to you from Him. [Soorah Adh-Dhaariyaat 51:50] The hijaab is a high form
    worship that is not subject to the opinions of people and their
    and choices because the one who legislated it is the Most Wise Creator.

    In summary: In the way of seeking the pleasure of Allah and in hope of
    Mercy and success in His Jannah and throw the statements of the devils
    people and jinn against the wall! Hold tight to the legislation of Allah
    your molars and follow the example of the striving and knowledgeable
    of the Believers and the female companions (radiallahu 'anhum ajma'een).

    In Conclusion

    Your body is on display in the market of Shaitaan seducing the hearts of
    men.The hairstyles, the tight clothing showing every detail of your
    the short dresses showing off your legs and feet, the showy, decorative
    fragrant clothing all angers the Merciful and pleases the Shaitaan.
    Every day
    that passes while you are in this condition, distances you further from
    and brings you closer to Shaitaan. Each day curses and anger are
    toward you from the heavens until you repent. Every day brings you
    closer to
    the grave and the Angel of Death is ready to capture your soul.

    Everyone shall taste death. And only on the Day of Resurrection shall
    you be
    paid your wages in full. And whoever is removed away from the Hellfire
    admitted to Al-Jannah, is indeed successful. The life of this world is
    the enjoyment of deception (a deceiving thing). [Soorah Aale 'Imraan

    Get on the train of repentance my sister, before it passes by your
    Deeply consider my sister, what is happening today before tomorrow
    Think about it, my sister - Now, before it is too late!
    Life became all Gray! But NOW i have decided to paint it all over again.

          yes his article is longer than any hijab
          i ever seen


            According to a column in Insaf, a number of girls students out in Swat for excursion wore jeans and sang Indian songs among themselves. They even danced on Indian tunes which the columnist found most shameless.


              Very good article Nia baji, thanx for sharing.

              and rvikz, what an intensive research you have done there to quote from some insaf newspaper. O' how pathetic. Come on, you can understand the wisdom for wearing hijab; it's not that hard. OR you are Mayn Na Manoo personality.

                  Missing the point bro/sis, as long as the clothes cover the body do not reveal the body's shape and are not tight, they are allowed.So english clothes which cover the body and with any type of head scarf(which covers all the hair) are allowed.

                    not really .... shalwar kameez and dupata.... that is the beauty of women...
                    her beauty has to be hidden from stranger men .... thats the way it was given to us...and thats the way it should be but ... several sisters of islam sighh dont follow it the way they suppose too
                    Life became all Gray! But NOW i have decided to paint it all over again.

                    I Tawt I Taw A Puddy Tat


                      nice article..


                        I have seen many Arab women in long skirts with a scarf. Is it ok. What about jeans and t shirts with scarf?

                        Get Back to Where you Once Belonged!



                          ok people..some of us guys are gettin confused between "hijaab" and "jilbaab",
                          now what someone posted earlier was that as long as the body shape is not being revealed, asin; not tight, not transparent..then yeah your salwar kameez shoud be fine, but now days you kameezah have these long slits right upto your waist, short arms, fitted clothes, real bold attractive clothes that ain't sufficient, this is why you see some girls wearing "jobba's" or "jilbab's" = long coat-type dresses right up to your this is like a over-coat; it covers and conceals our modesty.
                          beatle you were asking about jeans..personally speaking; NO, because argue or whatever jeans are deffinately gona show the shape of your legs, be it baggy or not baggy, that why it's advisable to wear a jobba or a long coat or whatever on top of'em.
                          hijaab is the head-scarf, for those of us who don't wear hijaab, or are half-hijabbies, asin wearing a parna with a "litt" coming out or our "cheeer" showin', well...what can i say..if even one strand of our hair is exposed; our namaaz is not kabool, so how the heck is our studyin', mingling, walkin', talkin, living without hijaab in maujood'gee of a non-mahram jaiz! (allowed)


                            Especially in western society you think you will not fit in with the rest if you wear the islam dress code, therefore i was reluctant. however i became a little wiser at the age of 19 and realised that i am different to them and should not be like them or try to fit in with them. i think it is when you really understand your TRUE identity it makes it easier to wear the islamic dress code, which i do. Allah (SWT) mentions in the quran something like the kuffar will never accept us even if we try to be like them-that made it a little easier for me to be my true self.
                            As for the jilbaab, this is something i wear too. this is because in light of the quran and hadith the women used to wear a dress with a barrel shaped bottom-that means a long dress. i think it is not wrong to wear silwar kameez or english clothes as long as it meets the requirements. however from past experiences wearing silwar kameez or english clothes made men look and follow me, and therefore i went back to the true islamic dress and found no hassle whatsoever.

                              rvikz, a woman is like a precious gem and should be concealed in that way. if you expose a gem all kinds of people would like to have it. so what is the better way of looking after this gem but to cover it modestly.
                              i totally understand your different opinion but i know if you read about hijab or understood the wisdom behind it society will have less problems than it does, including, rape, prostitution, adultry , fornication, abortion and many other consequences men and women could bring through exposing their bodies.
                              Lets not forget that the quran does not only tell women to cover their modesty but it also tells men to cover it too.
