As Salam Alikum Readers
Here’s some more hijab styles to try.
HijabDress in black got it all covered up
They think I’m oppressed
But really who’s depress?
I wear to express…
The true color I posses
So the time has come for me to confess
Stop the stereotyping
I don’t like them fancy dresses
Or public presses
To hear me loud and clear
As my modesty speaks without fear
Bismillah Ir Rahman Nir Rahim As Salam Alaikum,
Oh Muslimah wrapped in beautiful garments in this life varying in shades of black, blue, brown and the likes
When your soul is called back to your Lord you will once again be wrapped in the most beautiful garments of white!
Oh Muslimah death is inevitable and even if you were to hide in the highest of mountain tops, death will reach you.
Even if you were to seclude yourselves in your homes, death will reach you.
Even of you are the most pious and righteous amongst mankind, death will surely reach you! This is a reminder for myself first and then you.
So, Oh Muslimah while you still have breath in your body, while you still have time
(Insha allah) to accumulate good deeds, while you still are healthy and have wealth to give in charity, do that which will benefit your souls,for verily death will reach you and your deeds are written in your book and
Allah never forgets and He never breaks His promise and He is Oft-Forgiving and Merciful and He is the Only One that sees and hears all things.
When you force yourself in the depths of the night to get up for Tahajjudd.
When you cry out to Him for your sins, when you give charity in secret, when you help another Muslim in need, when you beg for His forgiveness for the sins you do openly and those hidden, the ones you remember and those you may have forgotten.
Oh Muslimah turn to your Lord in sincere repentance and from this day forth, from this hour on do the deeds that will earn Allah’s pleasure and will save you from the punishment ,
On a Day when we all will stand barefoot, naked and uncircumcised, alone begging for Allah’s mercy and forgiveness.
Praying our good deeds out weigh our bad.
Praying that those whom we wronged has forgiven us in this life, because you will be held up.
Know for sure you will be held up on the bridge not knowing if you will enter the hellfire or Paradise because you and another believer have not reconciled.
Know that you will be held up on the bridge if you wronged another believer and have not repented and have not asked for their forgiveness.
Know that you will be held up on the bridge if you have slandered or backbitten or stole or harmed or cheated or any of the other misdeeds will do to one another.
Oh Muslimah, May Allah forgive us all and aid us in this life with our affairs!
May he increase us in eeman and rectify our hearts and intentions.
May He put love and mercy in our hearts for one another, before the Hour comes when there will be no more time to repent, to forgive, or to cry!
Her long, thick, shiny black hairFell against her back.
Her rich, copper skin
Gleamed in the sunlight.
Her slender figure outlined,
With her soft voluptuous curves.
But when she stepped outside,
She became a ghostly figure of the night.
Nothing more to the people
Than a dark, shadowy figure of oppression.
But she showed them.
As she walked down the street,
People made way,
Men lowered their gazes in utmost respect.
And others whispered,
As she held her head up high,
With pride in her belief
And showed them how oppressed she really was!
While they whistled at their women,
Looking them up and down as they were
pieces of meat to be inspected?
She pitied their savage ways.
As she walked into the arms of
Her only love,
Where she was transformed,
Into her beautiful self,
For only his eyes to see.
The more a Muslimah is modest , the more stranger men won’t dare to look at her.
They will see in her the woman who is obeying her Lord, a woman they should respect.
So they will feel ashamed of their selves by staring at her
Hijabi woman should respect the Hijab she is wearing, as well
And should remember that it’s not just a piece of clothe on her head
But it’s the symbol of her chastity, a symbol which distinguish her from all other women in this world.
What do you see when you look at me,
Do you see someone limited, or someone free?
All some people can do is just look and stare,
Simply because they can’t see my hair…
Others think I am controlled and uneducated,
They are so thankful that they are not me,
Because they would like to remain ‘free’,
Well free isn’t exactly the word I would’ve used,
Describing women who are cheated on and abused,
They think that I do not have opinions or voice,
They think that being hooded isn’t my choice,
They think that the hood makes me look caged,
That my husband or dad is totally outraged,
All they can do is look at me in fear,
And in my eye there is a tear,
Not because I have been stared at or made fun of,
But because people are ignoring the One up above,
On the Day of Judgment they will be the fools,
Because they were too ashamed to play by their own rules,
Maybe the guys won’t think I am a cutie,
But at least I am filled with more inner beauty,
See I have declined from being a guy’s toy,
Because I won’t let myself be controlled by a boy,
Real men are able to appreciate my mind,
And aren’t busy looking at my behind,
Hooded girls are the ones really helping the Muslim cause,
The role that we play definitely deserves applause,
I will be recognized because I am smart and bright,
And because some people are inspired by my sight,
The smart ones are attracted by my tranquility,
In the back of their mind they wish they were me,
We have the strength to do what we think is right,
Even if it means putting up a life long fight,
You see we are not controlled by a mini skirt and tight shirt,
We are given only respect, and never treated like dirt,
So you see, we are the ones that are free and liberated,
We are not the ones that are sexually terrorized and violated,
We are the ones that are free and pure,
We’re free of standard’s that have no cure,
So when people ask you how you feel about the hood,
Just sum it up by saying ‘baby its all good’.

I feel there are certain ways children should dress and this is my way no one Else’s way feel free to agree or disagree , I really don’t care .
Showing the knees in both boys and girls is tacky and immodest should be avoided.
The length of a dress should be at least below the knee or longer ankle length is preferred. When one sits down one should make sure that dress is draped over legs and ankles if need be one may use a small lap blanket to cover legs and be modest
- Sleeves should cover shoulders and the older one is the longer the sleeves once one is 5 years old they should not be wearing short sleeves unless in the privacy of their own house, 5 to 11 years old, from 12 years to adult one should wear long sleeves whenever they are out of the house.
- Undershirts and underwear should always be clean and free of holes and stains , If you are embarrassed to show them then don’t wear them. Underclothing should fit comfortable and not pinch or ride up . Once a girl develops breast she should always wear a Bra .
- Bras should fit and be comfortable not ride up pinch , pull or bulge if it does any of these things then it is to tight
- Shorts for boys should fall to just below the knee , wearing pants would be preferable as they are more modest.
- Pants should be clean hole free and fit comfortable they should not ride up , pinch or be tight , if too long then fold into cuffs at the ankles or ask your mom to do a quick hem on them. Girls may wear pants that are loose , if the pants are tight then don’t wear them , stretch pans may be worn under dresses and long shirts .
- Shirts should not have faces or ugly pictures on them , girls should avoid wearing shirts that have prints on the chest area as it brings attention to that area.
- Dresses should fall below the knee and always wear either tights with dresses or short that fall below the knee, Tights should either match the dress or go with the outfit as should the shorts under the dress, young girls less tan 6 years old may wear dresses shorter than knee length as long as they wear shorts that fall past the knee.
- Skirts should be long loose and free flowing never form fitted or tight.
- Girls: Jilabas/ Abaya/Tunics and Kurta Tops/Salwar Kameez/Caftan may be worn over a core outfit, a core outfit is underclothes with tee-shirt and stretch pants or tights.
- Hijab should always be encouraged , once a girl has her monthly cycle then she should start wearing hijab full time when out of house
- Boys :Salwar Kameez/Disha Dasha/Long Kurta Shirt/Abaya/Thobes, Caftan/Jilabas / Kufies and hats should be encouraged to wear as it is more modest.
- Swimwear should be modest: for Boys shorts below the knee along wit a tee shirt. Girls tee shirt and below the knee shorts until age 11 then swimsuit should cover from wrist to ankles with a hijab attached
- Socks should always be clean and hole free , if wearing dark pants wear dark socks, light pants light socks .
When choosing shoes always make sure that your toes are comfortable and that they don’t pinch pull or hurt your feet if your feet hurt then the shoes are wrong for you.
- Sleepwear / lounge wear should be comfortable and modest it is ok to wear short sleeves but only in the privacy of your own house .
A word of advice if you are in doubt if something is modest then don’t wear it
