    Default HIjAB-NAQAAB is not a piece of cloth on your head

    In The name of Allah,The Most Merciful,The Most gracious

    Assalam-O- Alaykum,

    I Hope InshahAllah this note will help sisters to understand the true meaning of “HIJAB“ or "NAQAAB"".

    Just because some of the sisters have their head covered, they think that the requirement of Hijaab is fulfilled. They don’t realize that wearing a Hijaab requires much more than just covering your head.

    Actually, if you think about it, Hijaab is the way you talk…..the way you walk….the very way you carry yourself. In fact, Hijaab is an attitude in itself. Its a whole way of life.
    Allaah says:

    “And say to the believing women to lower their gazes, and to guard their private parts, and not to display their beauty (zeenah) except what is apparent of it, and to extend their headcoverings (khimars/Kaaff) to cover their bosoms (jaybs/Galla-Gereban), and not to display their beauty except to their husbands, or their fathers, or their husband’s fathers, or their sons, or their husband’s sons, or their brothers, or their brothers’ sons, or their sisters’ sons, or their womenfolk, or what their right hands rule (slaves), or the followers from the men who do not feel sexual desire, or the small children to whom the nakedness of women is not apparent, and not to strike their feet (on the ground) so as to make known what they hide of their adornments. And turn in repentance to Allah together, O you believers, in order that you are successful.” (Surat-un-Nur: 31).
    some sister says

    Well, my head is covered. What more do you want?

    If you look carefully at the ayah, it clearly states that the head covers (khumur/kaaff) should be drawn over the neck slits (juyoob/Galla-Gereban). Khumur is the plural of the Arabic word “khimar” and Kaaff is a Urdu word which means a headcover. Juyoob is the plural of the Arabic word “jaiyb” and Galla,Gereban is a urdu word ,which refers to the neck slit (of the dress).

    Yet, some sisters just cover their head with something, and think they are fulfilling the rights of Hijaab, although part of their hair or body is showing, or their whole neck and chest area are exposed. Actually, that was the way of the women of Jahilliyah.

    Al-Qurtubi said: “Women in those days used to cover their heads with the khimar, throwing its ends upon their backs. This left the neck and the upper part of the chest bare, along with the ears. Then Allah commanded them to cover those parts with the khimar/Kaaff.”

    So secure the scarf well around your face, covering your neck/chest area, and keep those half sleeves and capri pants for your Mahrams
    Sorry.…tight jeans and short shirt just don’t cut it

    You can’t wear tight jeans and a short shirt with a piece of cloth on your head and think this is Hijaab. Nor can you wear anything else that is tight, describing the shape of the body in any way, even if it is long. The Prophet (Sal Allaahu Alaiyhi wa Sallam) said:

    “In later (generations) of my ummah there will be women who will be dressed but naked. On top of their heads (what looks) like camel humps. They will not enter into paradise or (even) get a smell of it.” (Muslim)
    If it is see-through, its NOT Hijaab

    To be honest it's quite common and now become a fashion here.

    Girls would wear hijab (Cover their heads) but then everything else is visible as because of tight and figure hugging dress.
    Everyone is welcome

    What about make-up and perfume???

    Wearing make up is also part of the zeenah that Allaah orders us NOT to display. So if your head and body are appropriately covered yet you are wearing bright red lipstick or dark eyeliner such that people confuse between you and a raccoon….uh sorry, that’s not Hijaab. And keep those nice fragrances for the home, between you and your husband. That’s part of Hijaab too, even if you are going to the Masjid.

    The Prophet (Sal Allaahu Alaiyhi wa Sallam) said:

    “Any woman who puts on perfume and passes by people so that they can smell her fragrance, is an adulteress.” (al-Nasaa’i, Tirmidhi: hasan by Albaani)
    Tinkling Jewelry and Jingling bracelets

    ‘Loud’ and tinkling anything, be it jewelry, bracelets, clip-clopping shoes, little bells on clothes, you name it, if it jingles or makes noise, it is against the principles of Hijaab, because it attracts attention to the one wearing it.

    That is what is meant when Allaah orders us in the above verse…

    “not to strike their feet (on the ground) so as to make known what they hide of their adornments.”
    No laughing, joking, or hanging out with non-Mahrams

    Some sisters assume that since they are properly covered, its okay for them to sit around and talk, laugh, joke, etc. with the men, but that’s not right, even if he is ‘the Shaikh’. Allaah says:

    “. . . then be not soft in speech, lest he in whose heart is a disease should be moved with desire, but speak in an honorable manner.” [al-Ahzaab:32]

    So talk to them when there is a specific need, and in a manner that is not necessarily rude, yet it is polite but firm.

    Staring at the brothers or ‘checking them out’ is NOT Hijaab

    Allaah orders us to “lower your gaze” in the above verse. Why? Because a single ‘look’ can say more than a thousand words. So, even if you are properly covered, keep those eyes down, conduct yourself with ‘Hayaa’, and avoid ‘fitnah’

    ‘Chatting’ on the internet/phone is not part of Hijaab, either

    There is no such thing as “we’re just friends”. Talking to non-Mahrams is wrong even if it is through the internet or telephone. There are too many stories of illegal relationships, fornications, broken homes, extra-marital affairs and runaway brides to even mention. That is why in Islam anything that leads to haraam is also haraam. Allaah says:

    “Do not (even) come close to fornication, for it is an indecency, and its way is evil.” (Surah Israa:32) Be careful, even in the way you walk

    Remember, you are not a runway model displaying the latest fashion. Walk with modesty and hayaa and you will be respected. The Prophet (Sal Allaahu Alaiyhi wa Sallam) said:

    “There are two types of the people of Hell that I have not seen yet….women who are clothed yet naked, walking with an enticing gait…..” (Muslim).

    Don’t shake hands with non-Mahrams. Its part of Hijaab

    It is not permissible to shake hands with a non-Mahram, because the Prophet (Sal Allaahu Alaiyhi wa Sallam) said:

    “For one of you to be stabbed in the head with an iron needle is better for him than to touch a woman who is not permissible for him.” (at-Tabaraani saheeh by al-Albaani).

    And no, it is not rude to refuse to shake hands with non-Muslims. Simply politely explain that its part of your religion and they are very understanding.
    Stay away from the men’s areas

    I see many sisters entering the Masjid from the men’s entrance, or standing idle in the hallways or where there is a chance of unnecessary mixing with the brothers. What for?

    Don’t we have a separate entrance for ourselves? Why do you think Allaah ordained the Hijaab in the first place? To avoid fitnah, by reducing temptation and separating the genders.

    “The Prophet (Sal Allaahu Alaiyhi wa Sallam) said to the women on his way out of the mosque when he saw men and women mixing together on their way home: ‘Give way (i.e., walk to the sides) as it is not appropriate for you to walk in the middle the road.’ Thereafter, women would walk so close to the wall that their dresses would get caught on it.” (Abu Dawood)

    Hijaab is also to conceal your sister

    Although some sisters wear the Hijaab themselves, they forget that they cannot talk about another sister and her beauty in front of their own husbands, brothers, etc. Remember, part of your Hijaab is to cover your sisters ‘awrah’ as well.

    The Prophet (Sal Allaahu Alaiyhi wa Sallam) said:

    “No woman should mix with a woman and describe her to her husband so that it is as if he can see her.” (Muslim)

    May Allah guide sisters,and protect them from all kind of evils.
    ((Ameen)).

    HIjAB-NAQAAB is not a piece of cloth on your head
    I am one of your sisters and honestly feeling very embarrassed after reading this note. Not because of other girls on how they wear scarf, doing it the right way or not etc. etc. but about myself…I don’t even wear scarf(not proud of that) and I know there isn’t a good enough reason not to do…but inshallah soon.. but I agree that wearing scarf for many girls is more like fashion it’s very IN…and today you can’t say that a girl who is wearing scarf is more religious than a girl who doesn’t. Have seen many examples and if we gonna discuss about hijab then many things come in..it will be too long…can also turn this and say the same about muslim men having long beard and think they are very religious but the way they stare at girls..Toba toba..it’s too disgusting..just because some girls don’t wear scarf they don’t have the rights to look secound time at the same girl…you do see that very often…it’s like a girl who don’t wear scarf is kind of “halal” for them..hehe
