Just to note for many sisters who aren’t aware of what proper hijab is, it’s the covering of the entire hair, neck, and chest. Hijab means wearing lose clothing so that your body shape is not visible.
Truly it is a test when we decide to put it on. For any sisters who want to wear it …mentally prepare yourself for the test. People will make fun of you, they will joke about your past, they will tell you it doesn’t look good on you, and it is better to take it off. Know that all of their comments are from Shaytaan. Shaytaan will do whatever he can to make you remove it. However, we must be strong. We must remember Allaah is testing us to see if we are truly sincere in wearing the hijab or if we are just doing it for show and tell.
If we are sincere then in’sha’Allaah we will be patient when the test comes, and make massive du’aa to get through it. We will find new friends to be with who will support us, and not put us down.
And if our jobs make it tough for us, then we will look for better positions who will respect us as women and not as objects. Who will respect us for who we are and not what we look like. Who will respect us for our talent and not what our hair or body looks like.
Allaah tell us in the Qur’aan: “Verily, in the remembrance of Allaah do hearts find rest” (The Qur’aan Chapter 13: Verse 28)
Ya Allaah may you make it easy on all of the sisters who are coming to this path and journey for your sake only. Ameen. May you give them strength, patience and perseverance to keep it on for you alone. Ameen. May you make them a light, noor of who represent Islaam. Ameen! May you give them the best character and manners, and make them amongst the righteous whom you love. Ameen!!!
