Get This Doubt Off Your Back: Hijab - Normal Or Abnormal?

Recommended Posts

Misconception # 1.


When you're the only one trying to maintain your hijab in some place and all the other women are looking odd at you...

Suddenly one of them comes up with a big friendly smile on her face and chats you up. And after a while she comes to the point and asks what's on every one else's mind too:

"So, you've been wearing all this veil and stuff  ever since you grew up?"

"No, just a few years back."

"Oh, so before that you're normal like us?"


It's really sad to hear comments like these made by our own Muslim women. Since when have  blatantly going against the Quranic verses become "normal?"

Folks, wearing hijab and veil INFRONT of non related men (non mahrams) is OBLIGATORY for women, it's not optional. So don't look down on those who stick to the Islamic dress code, they're normal. Trust me.

Islamic values don't change just because the people stop following them. Right remains right even with NO ONE doing it! 


“O Prophet! Tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to draw their cloaks (veils) all over their bodies. That will be better, that they should be known (as free respectable women) so as not to be annoyed. And Allaah is Ever Oft‑Forgiving, Most Merciful” [al-Ahzaab 33:59] 


Appearing in front of non related men without hijab is something "abnormal" in front of Allah, His Messenger and all the Companions. 


And my those sisters who are ridiculed for wearing hijab, be strong and be of a good cheer! Allah appreciates you even if the world doesn't.


*Islam started as something strange and will return to being strange. So glad tidings to the strangers.*
