Wearing hijab – Compulsion, option or willingness?

Share this article:

Salam to all,

Male or female. Please participate and discuss.

What do u think based on our Muslims people nowadays?

If we see it as compulsion, why is it so?

If its an option, probably its the modern options, fashionable one or the preferred one

Willingness – Please share how many people are willing.

My point of view:

Islam is appropriate for all ages. So there’s no changes in which age u are. As a matter of fact islamic dress is appropriate for modern and civilized people too

Please share about the constraints of getting job due to Hijab. The main reason i create this topic is because of this. I heard from a friend saying something like below

Muslim women report that the issue of attire comes up most often in
the initial interview for a job. Some interviewers will ask if the
prospective employee plans to wear the scarf to work. Others may
inappropriately inquire about religious practices or beliefs. Sometimes
the prospective employee, feeling pressure to earn a living, will take
off the scarf for the interview and then put it on when hired for the
job. Modest dress should not be equated with incompetence.

Let us bear in mind the verse below :)

[Chapter 24, verses 30-31] Also, “O Prophet! Tell thy wives and
daughters, and the believing women, that they should cast their outer
garments over their persons…that they should be known and not
[Chapter 33, verse 59]

PS: I am not an ustaz yet to discuss on this however we should remember one thing on what Umar r.a said “Its not important who says it, the content is what we should pay attention to

First of all I would like to say thanks to Bro Fazlur and Sis Rehan for your support! The first reason for wearing hijab is because it is a command from God (Allah). We can have some Muslims who unjustly or ignorantly deny the illegality of drinking alcohol, eating pork or even committing major sins like stealing, murdering…etc. This does not mean that such things are permitted in Islam! In Islam it is very easy to detect or judge whether a certain ruling is mandatory or not, by going back to the major sources of Islamic legislation. This we technically… Read more »

Thought of sharing this. Posted by someone unknown

Behind the veil I am the queen..
I have a body that nobody seen..
Many people think I am oppressed-
And wonder how I got myself into this mess..

My veil is my cure..
And makes my heart pure..
It earns me my love from Allah my Lord..
And makes me strong against any sword..

Behind my beautiful veil lies..
My savior from the temptation of guys!
‘Behind my veil,’ I begin to say..
‘Is where I shall forever stay!’
