Wearing a hijab is a very personal choice to most women. They chose to wear for a number of reasons. Some wear for religious reasons while others may wear the hijab as a cultural practice. When you are ready to wear a hijab you might want to do a bit of research for ideas to come out with your own style. More of this later.
What is a Hijab?
Hijab is an Arabic word that means “to cover”. The most common name for a hijab is the headscarf. In Malaysia we call it a “tudung”. Wearing a hijab or tudung should be accompanied by loose, non-revealing and modest clothing. This is the correct way of donning a hijab and that is the religious way.
So when you are ready to wear a hijab:
Do some research and do the following:
- Take advantage of the social media, for example, look at Instagrams and Facebooks . Get ideas from them and from YouTube and hijab fashion blogs.
- Create your own styles. Wearing a hijab need not be conservative and drab. You can still be fashionable but still maintain your modesty.
- Ask hijab-wearing friends for advice and visit hijab boutiques.
- Don’t worry that you may not fit in with the crowds when you are ready to wear a hijab. You will be amazed that more and more women are turning to hijab. The sight of Hijab-wearing popular and glamorous artists in Malaysia is becoming very common.
Soon you will be coming out with your style. Today’s hijabis are spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing a hijab. There are numerous hijab styles ranging from long scarves to instant and pinless hijabs. Hijab boutiques, both physical and online shops, offer a wide range of hijab styles.
So when you are ready to wear a Hijab be thankful that you are ready to please Allah SWT with your decision.
