No subject seems to receive attention as the way women dress in Islam πŸ‘ŒπŸ’―
The way women dressed during the time of the Prophet (SAW) is wayy different from now because many muslim females have the belief that this is a “modern world ” & they have to evolve in “style” too πŸ’­

In the modern world that we’re in, dressing modestly as Muslim females without being made fun of , is a big challenge .
There are many hindrances preventing Muslim women from dressing the way Allah has ordained βŒπŸ“πŸ“. Most of it going down to the issue of peer pressure & having a sense of belonging.

Many of us girls, want to dress the way our non muslim friends dress & what we see on television πŸ‘€πŸ‘€

The thing is ,we don’t think about the Hereafter, we just think about the
” present “moment we want to live. But is that what’s really important ?No‼️

I know changing overnight isn’t going to happen, even I am struggling with the same problem.

But what we should always keep at the back of our minds is that , no matter how we dress & how we’re appreciated or enjoy being the centre of attention for the opposite gender, surely we’ll die one day & make account for our deeds to our Lord πŸ’―πŸ‘Œ

In Quran 24:30-31 , Allah tells Prophet Muhammad (SAW) to teach us the importance of modesty . When we dress well , we make it easier for the male species to lower their gazes , which is what’s right .

And don’t we feel more comfortable ? When half you body isn’t up for display ‘Come & Buy Market ‘ πŸ˜•

Sometimes, we feel overwhelmed when we see someone wearing a Niqab & I think it’s one of the reasons why people shy away from dressing as ordained by Allah .

I can say that for people like me who are still adapting, or even those who just want to start , taking it slow is the best way to not feel overwhelmed . You’ll get a hang of it soon . Be convinced & you might be wearing the Niqab soon ,In Sha Allah ☺️😊

Modesty doesn’t have to be difficult . Make sure you follow the conditions of wearing the proper hijab & STAY CLEAN ALWAYS πŸ‘ŒπŸ’―β€ΌοΈβ€ΌοΈ

Just because you’re wearing hijab now doesn’t mean you should be dirty .

May Allah guide us & make pleasing Him easy for us . I pray Allah keeps us steadfast in this beautiful religion . Ameen πŸ˜ŠπŸ’œπŸ’ž
