For the sake of fashion...

"Why are you dressed like that?"

"What? This?"

"Yeah, that!"

"What's wrong with it? Don't you like it? It's the hottest trend at the moment.  Nice, isn't it?"

The "wow" trend nowadays: volumised hijabs like the hump of a camel,
exposed neck area, thin & see-through fabrics, tight-fitting clothes
that revealed the shape of body, make-ups and heavy accessories 

I feel terribly frustrated. The world has changed a lot in the past ten years. This so-called "hottest trend" is slowly poisoning the new generation's mind and lifestyle. What are they thinking? Why are they willing to go against Allah for the sake of fashion? Is it worth it?

Women in Islam are special. They are highly ranked and respected in the society. Do not degrade and humiliate yourself by wearing inappropriate clothes. What you wear and how you behave will really tell something about you. Do you remember Julia Robert playing hooker in "Pretty Woman"? How was she treated by the retailers when she wanted to buy some 'respected' clothes with all the people surrounding her looked at her like she's one dirty bi*ch? You see, even in a society that legalise prostitution and pornography, women wearing skimpy clothes are "cheap sale".  So why would you, born as a Muslim, want to be just like them? How do you value your dignity then?

How can you claim that you are a muslim when you dress like this?
This is not fashion, this is a disgrace!

Wearing a hijab that resemble the hump (back) of a camel is strictly forbidden in Islam,
but sadly this is the trend that is spreading fast like rapid fire amongst muslimahs.

.Abu Hurairah narrated that the Messenger of Allah (peace be on him) said. "I will not be a witness for two types of people who are destined for the Fire: people with whips, like the tails of cows, who beat the people (ie, tyrannical rulers who are the enmies of their own people), and women who, although clothed, are yet naked, seducing and being seduced, their hair styled like the tilted humps of camels. These will not enter the Garden nor will its fragrance even reach them, although its fragrance reaches a very great distance. (Reported by Muslim).

Astaghfirullah! Dear parents, take care of your children and don't let them go astray.
How could you stay silent and just let your children drag you into the fire of hell?

O! Muslimah! We have been reminded now and then by the ayahs in the holy Quran about the importance of wearing modest clothings and covering ourselves with hijabs. We know of the consequences for disobeying Allah. Let's look ourselves again in the mirror. Are we properly covered up?


  1. Really good article Masha'Allah, may Allah swt reward you. :)

  2. sobhan Allah I am a new hijabi (ilhamdol'Allah) and this article (sent by a friend of mine who is also new to wearing the hijab) has helped in making me realize what hijab is all about

  3. Dear anonymous 1 and 2,

    Alhamdulillah, I am glad the article is helpful to you both. The world we are living in is getting older and older, we only have each other to remind ourselves, and that, of course based purely on Al-Quran and As-Sunnah. I pray all of us be granted the light of hidayah from Allah and may He protect us from the fire of hell. Na'uzubillahi min dzalik.

    Thanks for visiting this blog. I hope you like it. Wassalam.

  4. very nice jazakALLAH for clearing the concept.

  5. Dear Aamna,

    you are always welcome to ask or share anything about Islam here with me and the rest of the readers. ;)
