Ok so for the girls that wear hijab, we all make mistakes. And it’s ok to make mistakes. But let’s try to fix these mistakes. Here are 9 things we may be guilty of.
- Hair visible:
The most popular and a major mistake. The point of our hijab is to cover our hair. I know the hijab looks prettier showing the roots of our hair but we all know it’s not right. It completely confiscates the purpose of wearing the hijab. Your hair colour and texture is not a mystery anymore, all the guys/girls know it. Some girls don’t show their hair on purpose, sometimes the hijab slips and this is why you can wear a ‘Bandana’ AKA ‘Amta’ AKA ‘headband’. This keeps the hijab in place and your hair fully covered.
- The Carina body:
I’ve seen a lot of girls wear a Carina body as a shirt. The problem with that is that the Carina is super tight on the body making your body parts visible. The purpose of the Carina body is to be dressed under the shirt, not become the actual shirt.
- Skinny jeans:
I think most of us are guilty of this one and that includes myself. We all know it’s not right for a Hijabi to wear skinny jeans yet we all tend to ignore it. Your jeans don’t have to be SUPER tight, you can get ‘skinny jeans’ 2 sizes larger than your original size in order to avoid tightness around the thighs. As for the waist, you can take the jeans to the tailor to adjust the waist area. Or simply replace them with Boyfriend Jeans!
Moreover, I’ve tried to replace skinny jeans with skirts and dresses but that can’t apply to every occasion. There are days when you are going to places that involves going up the stairs, walking a lot, or simply a windy day and that’s when you can’t really wear skirts and dresses. You have to wear something comfortable and are easy to run around with. The looser the better.
- Tight skirts and dresses;
- Sleeves rolled up:
The reason behind girls rolling up their sleeves is because of the heat. I know, tell me about it. You feel a slight breeze enter that area hahah. But let’s try to roll them down a little.
- Jeans rolled up:
Most girls that wear turbans show their necks, hair, chest, arms. I have seen this one girl that wore a turban and with a turtle neck shirt and a scarf wrapped around her neck. She looked good. Because she was fully covered. But most girls just can’t keep it halaal.
- Transparent clothing:
Chiffon shirts especially are sort of see-through. Which means everything underneath the blouse is visible. That’s when Carina Body comes to use. Or simply pick a different material for the blouse.
- Transparent hijabs!
There are some veils that are transparent.
- you can wear a headband underneath it.
- or you can pick a different Hijab material.
It’s ok we all make mistakes. Now that you’re clear on what your mistakes are start writing a plan on how you’re going to fix them. Things come one step at a time.
Just start with Bismillah.
