Assalamualaikum and good morning to all dear friends and readers.
I was reading a local magazine about the current fashion trend among the local Muslimah which is the Sexy Hijabi Fashion. Here's the cover of the said magazine.
These days there are more covered Muslimah compared to 10 years ago. Alhamdulillah. It means that Islamic teaching especially about covering ourselves has been widely accepted by the Malaysian Muslimahs. This development also has attracted the fashion designers worldwide to create more fashion for Muslim women which they called Muslimah Fashion.
Of course there are designs which I think really Islamic and follow the Islamic dress code. However there are too many creations or clothes that said to be 'Muslimah Fashion' but sadly not Islamic at all. They can varies from tudungs, dresses, pants, skirts, baju kurungs, jubahs and so on. They will make you look sexy when you wear them.
Figure hugging or tight fitting blouse, matched with a lycra instant tudung and complete the assemble with a skinny pants or skinny jeans - you can see that every where in Malaysia. Do not bluff me by saying that your aurah is covered. No... No... No. You are only wrapping yourselves with clothes not covering it.
Look at this cartoon spread inside the same magazine,
Don't you think you've seen this kind of fashion out there? Use our mind and reflect. Yes, we've seen this kind of fashion in many places. Sometimes people wear leotard or tights and top it off with a knee-length dress and a tudung. Please dear Muslimah, let's cover our aurah P R O P E R L Y.
There's no point wearing clothes like this. It's a waste of money, a waste of time and the biggest waste is your DIGNITY. Everyone can see how small, how big, how thin, how slim, how fat, how tight and all the how that you can think off when speaking on human body.
Let's get back to the right teaching about our dress code. We can wear ANYTHING, as long as it does not show our body shape, does not show our skin and does not show our personal adornment in front and at the back (breasts, hips, bottoms, thigh - you know them.)
Before I forget, do not wear jubah with cutting. Please... the cutting's purpose is to shape your body. That jubah would not help in covering our aurah but helping to disclose our figure to others. Wear something loose without cuttings. Save our body from searching eyes insyaallah we will also save our iman.
A reminder for all of us, women of Islam.
