Assalamualaikum and good afternoon to all my dear friends, readers and visitors.
I keep thinking about a comment that was left under one of my latest Polyvore's style creation. It was quite long but the message is clear, the writer wants me to explain my reason for stating so boldly that this kind of fashion is not hijab.
Let's read her message once again. Shall we?
is it ok if u explain why some of the sets are not hijab? this will make people understand why it is not hijab. and i agree with you on this set. i remember seeing a girl and her mom at the mall and they are both wearing hijab. the mother was dressed fine, but the girl was wearing tights and a mini skirt. i got so mad. i know i don't wear a hijab, but i would never wear anything that short in public. only in front of my husband. i respect the women who wear the hijab right. and practice islam everyday. and they do good things with their attitude and their actions. some muslim women who wear a hijab smoke argilla and/or have boyfreinds, they go out at night with their friends. some women just have a bad attitude and are mean to everybody. that is not islam. anwayz, nice set, just please explain in each set why the sets you made are not hijab so that people can understand.
Firstly I'd like to thank the owner of the message who called herself by the name rollout4490 in Polyvore.com and I haven't written any reply to her yet.
Actually I created 3 sets which have the 'This is not hijab' wording on them. My intention for those sets are to include them in my entry in Keluargaku Sayang on the Aurah topic. I do not want to insert a real model photo so I made a few sets to portray the real thing. As I was in a hurry, I do not write any explanation in Polyvore because immediately after the sets were ready, I posted them in this (Cerita Pasal Tudung) entry.
Okay, I'm going to explain my reason for saying they are not hijab. First, let's read this 3 translations of ayah 31 from Surah Nisa' in our holy Qur'an,
YUSUFALI: And say to the believing women that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty; that they should not display their beauty and ornaments except what (must ordinarily) appear thereof; that they should draw their veils over their bosoms and not display their beauty except to their husbands, their fathers, their husband's fathers, their sons, their husbands' sons, their brothers or their brothers' sons, or their sisters' sons, or their women, or the slaves whom their right hands possess, or male servants free of physical needs, or small children who have no sense of the shame of sex; and that they should not strike their feet in order to draw attention to their hidden ornaments. And O ye Believers! turn ye all together towards Allah, that ye may attain Bliss.PICKTHAL: And tell the believing women to lower their gaze and be modest, and to display of their adornment only that which is apparent, and to draw their veils over their bosoms, and not to reveal their adornment save to their own husbands or fathers or husbands' fathers, or their sons or their husbands' sons, or their brothers or their brothers' sons or sisters' sons, or their women, or their slaves, or male attendants who lack vigour, or children who know naught of women's nakedness. And let them not stamp their feet so as to reveal what they hide of their adornment. And turn unto Allah together, O believers, in order that ye may succeed.SHAKIR: And say to the believing women that they cast down their looks and guard their private parts and do not display their ornaments except what appears thereof, and let them wear their head-coverings over their bosoms, and not display their ornaments except to their husbands or their fathers, or the fathers of their husbands, or their sons, or the sons of their husbands, or their brothers, or their brothers' sons, or their sisters' sons, or their women, or those whom their right hands possess, or the male servants not having need (of women), or the children who have not attained knowledge of what is hidden of women; and let them not strike their feet so that what they hide of their ornaments may be known; and turn to Allah all of you, O believers! so that you may be successful.
And let's also read the Islamic dress code,

So... do you think I need to explain more? I think this is enough explanation for my claimed on those sets. I can make more but those 3 are some examples of what some of our sisters out there are wearing. It's rather difficult to advice others especially on their attire more so when they claimed it as hijab.
I hope this post manage to answer th friend's comment on my Polyvore set.
