View Full Version : Hilarious Hijabs!!!

Hijab is Arabic for protection and cover. Some people put alot of effort into their Hijab, yet it serves no purpose. I am referring to the pointless Hijab that some girls wear.

The first pointless hijab is referred to as the headband hijab. It is a band of fabric approximately 4 inches wide. It covers the back of the head and allows all the hair to be exposed. It doesn't serve much in terms of modesty, but atleast it comes in handy in case of an unexpected tennis match!

The second pointless hijab is the dupatta, also known as the Saran wrap hijab.It covers all the hair, but it is totally transparent. Again, it doesn't serve much in terms of modesty, but it keeps the hair nice and fresh!

The third type of hijab is known as the Mickey Mouse Hijab. It is when a girl wears a black scarf and tucks it behind her ears so that her ears stick out!

We now move on to my favourites- the yo-yo hijabs:
The first yo-yo hijab is the scarf that keeps falling down and needs to be constantly pulled back up...up, down, up, down, just like a yo-yo.

The second yo-yo hijab is also referred to as the convertible hijab. This type of hijab is predominant at any type of social event i.e an Aqeeqah, Bismillah party, Ameen party, Wedding, etc.

This is when an Imam or Qari comes up to the microphone and starts to recite the Qur'an. At this point, all the convertible hijabs come up...until he says..."SADAQALLAHUL ADHEEM". I'm not sure, but apparently, in some cultures that translates to "OK SISTERS, YOU MAY TAKE OFF YOUR SCARVES."

I'm sure this may seem odd, but what's even funnier is when people do not anticipate the recitation of the Qur'an at a social event, and are forced to be creative and use accessories such as purses to cover one's hair!

I was surprised to see a woman hold her purse over her head as "HIJAB" ......as if the multitudes of men surrounding her are not a good enough reason to wear hijab, but some guy reciting du'a compels her to hold her purse over her head. Her friends were more creative...one friend used her dinner napkin!

I was also laughing when I saw the communal hijab-two or morw girls dropped under one dinner napkin during the recitation of the Qur'an. Her other friend was still more creative...she used her coffee saucer on the back of her head. I wasnt sure if it was hijab or Yamaka. I didn't know if she was a Muslim or a Jew. I felt like going up to her and saying: "SHALOM ALAIKUM, SISTER"

And, people should remember that hijab is not just a protection from guys, but from a girl's nafs (ego) as well. IT should prevent girls from having to spend hours infront of the mirror doing her hair. But unfortunately, you see girls in front of the mirrors for hours doing their hijab as they would do their hair, with all sorts of elaborate braids and the like. I wanted to go up to a sister and say: "IS YOUR HIJAB NATURALLY CURLY?" I also felt compelled to go up to another girl and say "PARDON ME, BUT IS YOUR HIJAB NATURALLY THAT COLOR OR DID YOU DIE IT?" Well, the point is that some people make an effort to wear hijab, but it is futile, because it is not fulfilling its pupose. It's like using an umbrella with holes in it. Hijab is used for protection from guys as well as from the girl herself, and should not be used as an accessory or for beautifying one's self!!!

So it is not enough to cover yourself, you have to look ugly as well?

I am interested in why you have posted so many articles on hijab. I mean of all the issues in the Muslim world, this one seem disproportionately important. How much of the Quran or Hadith is devoted to the Hijab? How much of this Forum is? How much of your time is? You reckon the answers are about 1 percent, about 20 percent and about 99 percent? Don't you think there are some more important issues you could be concerned with? Well obviously you do not, but may I ask why you think this is so important? Muslims are out there drinking and gambling and smoking. And sitting on the dole. Isn't that important too?

Well this whole internet thing must be problematic for you, but I will let it pass. You misunderstand my question. I am not asking how much of your time is spent wearing it. I was asking how much of the Brother's time was spent trying to defend the wearing of it. Look at this Forum. It is packed with people all talking about the hijab. How much time did Muhammed spend talking about the hijab as opposed to, say, poverty and justice? Why do you think that so many people care so much more about hijab than starvation in Niger?

Yep that is.
Then where are the threads on it? Is there one single thread here on why Muslim men should not drink and how important it is to make them stop?

Muhammad (saw) emphasized on the importance of hijab so much that his daughter Lady Fatimah, before dying told her family to bury her using something like a casket. (In those days, during the Pagan times, coffins were not used. Dead people were left open)

May I ask whose words they are (and why Muslims are ignoring them)?

And may I also ask what did you mean? If you were explaining you must have had something in mind....

What is the source for this claim? And how is that related to hijab?

Are you telling me it is forbidden to see the outline of a dead woman?

I think the author (whoever he/she may be) meant to say that when a woman is educated, she is able to educate her children. Thus, if you educate the women of a nation, they will in turn educate their children, the nation's next generation. Hence, you will be educating a nation? That's an obvious analysis of the sentence, but I don't think it was meant to suggest women are more powerful than men.

Why is that?

I do not think you should not waste your time on hijab. I am wondering why this is so much more important to you than, say, unemployment and crime among young Muslims.

Since you wrote that Muhammad (saw) did not preach much about hijab, I was showing you how much importance Islam has laid on hijab.

And i would appreciate it if you would stop telling me to remind you of your own words

All that are important true.
But some philosopher said," educate a woman and you educate the bation", I am trying to educate the mone about hijab and hence if they correct themselves then hopefully the whole nation will be corrected through them.

We have Somalis here. Drought is about to kill thousands. How many threads on dying Somalis? How many on Hijab?

Am I the only one who thinks that the priorities of some people are a little odd?

Now this is not to say that hijab is not an important issue. But it is really more important than, say, relief for Somalia?

Hijab is more important then we think most women think lets first do this then wear the Hijab and some women say "Well i pray 5 times" as if that compensates for the Hijab.

In the Quran Allah SWT told Muhammed pbhu for his women to wear the Hijab and "All believing" women.

From this you can see that to be a believer in Islam you must wear the Hijab.

HeiGou raises an important question here. Should the hijab not be way down the list of important issues?

The notion stems from the emphasis Islam places on honoring the mother and giving the daughter a good upbringing, because they will be the future mothers of the nation. As one scholar pointed out, the mothers are the first and most important schools (sources of education) of the nation. Thus, we understand the Prophetic statement, Paradise lies under the feet of your mother (Musnad Ahmad, Sunan Ibn Majah, Sunan An-Nasaa'i) to be emphasizing that paradise comes from the serving and honoring our mothers, the women of the nation. Likewise, the Prophet Muhammad pbuh said Whoever cares for three daughters, gives them a good upbrining, marries them to good husbands and treats them with compassion, their reward will be paradise (Sunan Abi Dawud). And Whoever had a daughter and does not prefer his son over her, Allah will admit him to paradise because of her (Mustadarak Al-Haakim).

As for why the emphasis on hijab, it is an issue that many people have misconceptions about, and needs to be clarified. As for the plight of Muslims, this will change once Muslims return to their religion.

Peace.

no really think about it. Puttin on makup and cosmetics doesnt make you any cleaner, it jus makes u "ehhem luk better.... AS IF!!!!". But shavin/cuttin hair etc is a form of cleanliness becoz the unmentionable areas are said to be dirty. Therefore dirtiness must b shaved.

waxin and stuff is not allowed, as thats modifying and not cleaning :)

Don't you think there are some more important issues you could be concerned with? Well obviously you do not, but may I ask why you think this is so important? Muslims are out there drinking and gambling and smoking. And sitting on the dole. Isn't that important too?
Allah ordered wearing Hijaab in Kur'an so that we women are safe from men's looks,
Submission to Allah SWT requires that we put Him before ourselves. That we put our desires second to His desire for us. That we acknowledge that He knows better than we do what is right for us.

The Quran also tells us to obey the Prophet (sAas) as well as Allah SWT (see for example Surah an-Nisa ayah 59). It tells us that if we have faith we will take the Prophet (sAas) as the judge of any dispute (Surah an-Nisa ayah 65). It tells us that when both Allah SWT and the Prophet (sAas) have decided a matter it is not for a Muslim or Muslimah to have any further say in that matter (Surah al-Ahzab ayah 36). It tells us that what the Prophet (sAas) has given us, we should take and what he has prohibited to us, we should refrain from (Surah al-Hashr ayah 7). And it tells us that the Prophet (sAas) has been sent not just to deliver the Quran but also to explain it (Surah an-Nahl ayah 44).

So, what do the Quran and Sunna say about hijab? There are two ayat of the Quran that deal with hijab. These are Surah an-Nur ayah 31 and Surah al-Ahzab ayah 59. Let's look at what these ayat say, and how the Prophet (sAas) has explained them.

Surah an-Nur ayah 31 says:

Wa qul li al-mu'minat yaghdudna min absarihinna wa yahfazna furujahunna wa laa yubdina zenatahunna illa maa zahara min haa wal-yadribna bi khumurihinna ala juyubihinna; wa laa yubdina zenatahunna illa li bu'ulatihinna aw aba'ihinna aw aba'i bu'ulatihinna aw abna'ihinna aw abna'i bu'ulatihinna aw ikhwanihinna aw bani ikhwanihinna aw bani akhawatihinna aw nisa'ihinna aw maa malakat aymanu hunna aw at-tabi'ina ghayri ulu'l-irbat min ar-rijal aw at-tifl alladhina lam yazharu ala awrat an-nisa wa laa yadribna bi arjulihinna li yu'lama maa yukhfina min zenatahinna. Wa tubu ilaAllahi jami'an, ayyuha al-mu'minun la'allakum tuflihun

And say to the faithful women to lower their gazes, and to guard their private parts, and not to display their beauty except what is apparent of it, and to extend their headcoverings (khimars) to cover their bosoms (jaybs), 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 the faithful, in order that you are successful
Surah al-Ahzab ayah 59 says:

Ya ayyuha an-Nabiyy qul li azwajika wa banatika wa nisa al-mu'minin yudnina alayhinna min jalabib hinna; dhalika adna an yu'rafna fa laa yu'dhayn. Wa kana Allahu Ghafur Rahim

O Prophet! Say to your wives and your daughters and the women of the faithful to draw their outergarments (jilbabs) close around themselves; that is better that they will be recognized and not annoyed. And God is ever Forgiving, Gentle.

Together, these two ayat lay out seven commandments for Muslim sisters:

"to lower their gazes"
"to guard their private parts"
"not to display their beauty except what is apparent of it"
"to extend their headcoverings to cover their bosoms"
"not to display their beauty except to their husbands or their fathers..."
"not to strike their feet (on the ground) so as to make known what they hide"
"to draw their outergarments close around themselves"
It can be seen that three of these commandments relate to behavior. These are:

lowering the gaze
guarding the private parts
not striking the feet on the ground so as to give knowledge of what is hidden
Lowering the gaze means not looking at what is forbidden to be seen of others. Guarding the private parts means that only the husband is allowed to see or touch them. Not giving knowledge of what is hidden means not posturing or strutting around so as to jangle hidden jewelry or make men think about hidden body parts. All of these are part of what Allah SWT has commanded in regard to hijab


According to the Quran and Sunna, hijab consists of modest behavior in lowering the gaze, guarding the private parts, and avoiding showing off, and of modest dress. The modest dress includes a headscarf and must cover all of the body except the face and the hands. Outdoors and in open public places, a long coat (jilbab) should be worn in addition to the modest dress commanded by Surah an-Nur ayah 31. Each of these obligations is clearly set out in the Quran and has been explained by the Prophet (sAas).

Not really because I could start listing all the funny things Westerners think and I'd still not be done by this time next week.

It is a big issue among Muslims as well. So it is not just when dealing with us that Muslims care. It is the first thing pious people start with, it is the first thing most men seem to talk about.

Well the point is that some people make an effort to wear hijab, but it is futile, because it is not fulfilling its purpose. It's like using an umbrella with holes in it.

HIJAB!!!
HILARIOUS HIJABS

The author of this article "Observations on Hijab" is unknown.
It is however, thought to be written by a brother.
Funny as it is, there are a number of lessons to be learnt...

It has been my personal observation that some Muslim girls and women do not realise the significance of hijab. Hijab is Arabic for protection and cover. Some people put a lot of effort into their hijab, yet it serves no purpose. I am referring to the pointless hijab that some girls wear.

The first pointless hijab is referred to as the headband hijab. It is a band of fabric approximately 4 inches wide. It covers the back of the head and allows all the hair to be exposed. It doesn't serve much in terms of modesty, but at least it comes in handy in case of an unexpected tennis match!

The second pointless hijab is the dupatta by asian women, also known as the Saran wrap hijab. It covers all the hair, but it is totally transparent. Again it doesn't serve much in terms of modesty, but it keeps the hair nice and fresh!

The third type of hijab is known as the Micky Mouse Hijab. It is when a girl wears a black scarf and tucks it behind her ear, so that her ears stick out!

We now move on to my favourites - the yo-yo hijabs:
The first yo-yo hijab is the scarf that keeps falling down and needs to be constantly pulled back up.... up, down, up, down, just like a yo-yo!

The second yo-yo hijab is also referred to as the convertibe hijab. This type of hijab is predominant at any type of social event, i.e. an Aqeeqah, Islamic talk wedding, etc. This is when an Imam or Qari comes up to the microphone and starts to recite Qur'an. At this point, all the convertible hijabs come up... until he says "SadaqAllahu Atheem." I'm not sure, but apparently in some cultures that translates to "OK sisters, you may take off your scarves."

I'm sure this may seem odd, but what's even funnier is when people do not anticipate the recitation of Qur'an at a social event, and are forced to be creative and use accessories such as a purse to cover one's hair. I was surprized to see a woman hold her purse over her head as "hijab"... as if the multitudes of men surrounding her are not a good enough reason to wear hijab, but some guy reciting du'aas compels her to hold a purse over her head. Her friends were more creative... one friend used her dinner napkin. I was also laughing when i saw the communal hijab- two or more girls dropped under one dinner napkin during the recitation of Qur'an. Her other friend was still more creative. She used her coffee saucer on the back of her head. I wasn't sure of it was hijab or Yamaka. I didn't know if she was a Muslim or a Jew. I felt like going up to her and saying "Shalom alaikum, sister."

And, people should remember that hijab is not just a protection from guys, but from a girls' nafs (ego) as well. It should prevent girls from having to spend hours in front of the mirror doing her hair. But, unfortunately, you see girls in front of the mirror for hours doing their hijab as they would do their hair, with all sorts of elaborate braids and the like. I wanted to go up to a sister and say "Is your hijab naturally curly?" I also felt compelled to go up to another girl and say "Pardon me, but is your hijab naturally that colour, or did you dye it"?

Well the point is that some people make an effort to wear hijab, but it is futile, because it is not fulfilling its purpose. It's like using an umbrella with holes in it. Hijab is used for protection from guys as well as from the girl herself, and should not be used as an accessory or for beautifying one's self.

Any way, that's it. If any one disagrees with me or is offended, then you are disagreeing with the teachings of Allah Subhaanuhu wa Ta'ala.
