    Posted: 07 October 2005 at 10:38am

As-salam Alaikum Brothers and sisters,

I have not been on this site for quite some while now due to my busy life and practising of islam.

I just want to let you all know that since February 2005 Marsh-Allah I have been wearing the hijab and Veil this was this biggest and best decision I have made in my life Alhumdulillah.

I was born christian and converted to islam 5 years ago since then I have been learning about islam and when I first became a muslim I said I would never wear hijab/veil not understanding the meaning of wearing it I hate to say I criticised it (what a mistake).

As my faith and knowledge has grown stronger I decided that women wearing veil must feel something putting in it on so I decided to read up on it.

I only had to read the following to change my mind:

"O Nabi! say to your wives, your daughters and to the women of the Mu'mineen that they draw over their jilbaabs (outer cloaks or burqahs). that (i.e covering themselves with jilbaabs) is the least (minumum requirment which they should adopt) so that they be reconized and not molested (by shameless people of loose morals)    -surah Ahzaab, aayat 33

I now feel that since wearing the veil I have my own space and freedom before men would look and stare ,look in a way that I knew was wrong by wearing veil I feel I am telling them leave me alone this is my space this is my freedom in this world I do not to want to be strared and looked at except by my husband.

My parents both follow christian religions and when they asked me why I wanted to do such a thing I say like I say to all the other people (I did it to please Allah )SWT

Also I have stopped wearing perfume Allah SWT is more pleased of your natural smell than he is for you to wear perfume and attract male attention.

For anybody who is thinking of wearing veil Insha-Allah pray to Allah SWT who insha-Allah will answer your prayers, and when questioned you only need one answer YOU ARE WEARING IT TO PLEASE ALLAH.

Wa-Salam sister Aliya

Rahmadan Mubarak

O Nabi! Tell your wives, your daughters and the women of the believers to draw over them their Jilbaabs. (33.59)

Wa Alaikum Assalaam Warahmatulahi Wabarakatuhu,

Masha Allah ya ukhtee,


May Allah reward you ameen. I am very happy for you and that you are happy with your decision. I also made that decision, believe me it was not easy but alhamdulillah I am also happy. My mother has a very hard time when she sees me put it on, but I do not wear it around her because she is older and I don't want to upset her. Allah knows my intention. Where my Mom lives there are many elderly people so whenever we go to visit we just push it back in the car before we enter the building so not to scare them.

Its sad that people are afraid and they are because of the media and all the rubbish that is said about us, but alhamdulillah we have been able to give dawah to the ones that question us and even my Mom talks to them about Islam may Allah guide her and all of them ameen.

I wear my veil to please Allah that is it, and He Will be the One to Judge me on the day of judgment so it dosnt matter what anyone else thinks. On that day each and every one of us will be standing "Alone" before Allah and not a single person can help the other.
And Allah Knows Best.

Keep making dua for your parents sis, never stop. Baraka Allahu Feeki ameen

Your sister in deen

Salam Sister,

I am so happy to hear that another sister has chosen to wear the Hijab, as i do and i was one to say i would never wear it as well, but we should never say never because Allah knows everything and we know nothing.

My family also are Christians and asked me the same question and i replied because the qur'an tell me to and i want to make Allah happy.

All things i do is for Allah and Allah alone.

I can't tell you how happy you have made today knowing that another sister has taken another step in nowing and embracing islam more.

Your sister in Islam,

Carla(aishia)

I have not converted yet.  If I'm not mistaken the hajib is supposed to cover your ears.  What if you have a job where you talk on the phone?  Should you wear it not covering your ears?
God has the final word and is the only judge.

Covering face
while goin for work
while goin to school
or when going for a party (wedding birthday party not going to disco or pubs)
lets imagine a

a girl in veil coming home from work walkin on a foot path coz the poor girl doesnt has a car and has to work she has no choice and the climate is very hot summer 50 degree (in gulf countries temperatures do go on that limit )
has difficult problems in breathing
black cloth has made situation worse
NOW THIS HAS HAPPENED IT IS TRUE tell what you think the girl should have done this what she did
she removed her veil n was able to breathe a little better n felt more comfortable she tells if she wouldnt have removed her veil she might have fainted
so all brothers and sisters please tell how far is veil compulsary in islam
tell me a verse in quran where ALLAH ALLMIGHTY tells women to cover their face and go out i know one thing ALLAH doesnt wants to make the religion difficult for us IT IS WE WHO HAVE MADE IT

As I wear the veil myself she could of just lifted up off her mouth to get a breath of fresh air or if she knew the weather was going to be warm she could have druken some water to cool herself down.

Salam sister...whose telling her that she MUST wear black? Islam allows any colour.  If I was in a Muslim country and considering the warm climate I would most surely wear coloured...

Salaam

Even though I wore all black and niqab in the middle east in July, and I didn't feel a difference when I wore all black and when I wore colors. The only place niqab was annoying was mid-day in places that were more humid than the rest of the country. But eventually you just get used to it.
