What, throw your stuff off. those muslims who do that had no care in the first place whether they wore a hijab or jilbab or not

I wouldn't work at all, you have family who support you, dont ya?

No job is worth compromising your deen for...

I find you very immature. No idea of what to say when sisters are around and what's more, a very sad fill of humor.

"hijaabis maybe asked to strip"

Just a question, would your mother slap your face in once or twice if she found out you said this to respectable sisters? Don't tell me it runs in the family.

Sigh..

Except I didnt say it to a respectable sister did I, I said it to Minaz, and if you havent clicked already, me and him go to the same sarcasm school...

:)

And hey, Im sorry you feel that way, and hey, Im sure we can leave insulting families out of this...

Gosh, you still don't get it do you.

There are sisters who will read that. What will they think, what a dirty minded little immature boy you are?. Seriously, don't you care?

Delete it. It's not cool. It's not funny. It's not sarcasm. Remember, jokes and pranks are ok in Islam, so long they don't go over the "hayah" limit.

That is just sad. Its not worth giving up your deen for some job. If I had this problem, I'd look somewhere else. And you should keep looking elsewhere cause you might find a suitable working environment that's halal for you. I know sisters who work in such conditions so I'd suggest that you keep looking.

Subhanallah

Once while i was at work this sister stopped me she wasn't wearing hijab. Just trouse and long shirt with her little kid in her push chair. She gave me salams and looked at me up and down.

She said do you work here?

I said yes

Your manager allows you to wear this?! i.e my Hijab

I said yes Alhamdulilaah.

Alhamdulilaah she too said

All of a sudden she started to cry :(

I said sister why are you crying? And by then i was getting really worried because this other manager was coming towards me :omg: and i was thinking what is he going to think?! Why is the customer crying? :omg: Subhanallah.

She said i took off my Hijab to get my job and ever since i feel really guilty. Then she went into this long story about her manager. Not that i want to bore you with it.

Taking off your hijab to get a job is not worth it walaahi. You'll forever feel this guilt that that siter felt. Allah is All-Mighty and we should put our trust in Him.

"And whosoever is conscious of Allah, He will make a way for him to get out (from every difficulty). And He will provide him from (sources) he never could imagine. And whoever puts his trust in Allah, then He will suffice him. Verily, Allah will accomplish His purpose. Indeed Allah has sent a measure for all things." (Quran: 65/2-3)

I think the muslima should choose her religion over her job

Sister, why not try working at a hospital? That's what me and my friend are doing this year... We're allowed to wear hijab and een niqab if you want to and there's loads of muslims there... Plus, all you have to do is little stuff, like put away papers in the right folders, type up stuff, make badges for the security people, etc. Plus, there's no discrimination which is why many muslim girls in new york work and do community service at hospitals... This is just a suggestion by the way.... :)

Asalamu aleykum,
Sister when your looking for job, you have to consider everything...You have to remember that as a pious muslimah there are certain which we can work in such as bars, night clubs and so on. So if your in need of a job, you could probably find a telemarketing job, or customer service or even work for an islamic organization. I'm from Toronto, and if you lived here I would be more than happy to find you a job but since you live in the states thats kinda of a problem. May Allah help you on finding a job and Ramadan Kareem to all.

Ramadan Mubarak.
MasaAllah, you sisters have strong Iman. May Allah keep us on the Straight Path and increase our Iman. Ameen.
A friend of mine from Masjid told us about this brother here in Atlanta. He is very strict in following the Sunna. Everything from his cloths to his attitude reflects what Muslims should be. However his boss was reluctant regarding this Islamic appearance. The boss told him to wear regular cloths to work. There were other Muslim brothers working with him in the same company. When they heard this, Alhamdulilah they also started dressing according to Sunnah to support the brother. Eventually the boss gave in.
May Allah help us to unite this way to help each other for His cause forever. Ameen.
