WorldHijabDay is a day we set aside to
educate and share with non muslim & muslim
hijabis the experience of wearing a traditional
scarf the islamic way for one day... Muslims
women wear these scarves/ veil to cover their
hair and necks when in presences of most
There are many misconceptions about
Muslim and their culture. Displays of modesty
and devotion are often mistaken for cultural
oppression or extremism.
Its a challenge to learn something new and
different. We really aim to combat the ignorance & negative associations; by showing the world the true essence of Hijab and positive side of it.

World Hijab Day is not a celebration. It is not a
festival. It is an awareness drive aimed at
educating, encouraging and breaking down
barriers as to what "hijab" is all about.
-This awareness drive gives the opportunity to
those who have yet to build the courage and
give the much-needed push to take that
significant first step. It also provides a platform to those who are misinformed and have misconceptions about the hijab to clear their doubts and seek clarification.
-For those who are inquisitive as to what the
hijab is all about, this awareness drive will
hopefully allow you to get a firsthand feel of it."

By Sarah (Australia)
Coming from the country side in Australia, I was never exposed to Islam. I knew nothing aboutit. I thought of it as an oppressive religion, whenever I heard about it. It wasn’t until I went to Malaysia, that God guided me in ways I never expected, Subhan’Allah.
I learned that Muslim women also have rights,
which were legally given even before the West
did. Meeting impressive women like Sisters in
Islam and Marina Mahathir, also inspired me to
divulge into Islam more. I found that I could
have a career and be a Muslim. However, it
wasn’t until a year later, I reverted,
Islam is a beautiful way of life to praise and
worship Allah as One God every single day.
While it is not easy to explain to friends and
family, I wouldn’t have it any other way. I did a
lot of research and interviewed many Muslim
and even non-Muslim women on why women
choose to cover up. I also learned a lot from
my Imam and his wife, who taught me it is for
women to be recognized more for their
intelligence, not be as exposed, to this
sometimes, overly sexual world and to keep
your beauty for your husband.

By Na’ilah (Japan)
I was born Muslim but never worn Hijab as my
parents never asked me to wear it. Also, my
mother wasn’t wearing it either, so I used that
as my excuse for not wearing it.
I always had this weak desire to wear Hijab. I
was not even sure if I was ready for it. I thought
I’m young, pretty (lol) and loved fashion a lot
and thought the style of Hijab would make me
look boring. I always envisioned Hijabs to be
triangular in shape and it gets pinned by the
chin with a safety pin and on the body, wear
only Abaya (a full-length outer garment). That
was the image in my head.
Nonetheless, things changed on June of 2013.
I was completely depressed, unhappy with my
own life and with myself. Nothing made me
happy. I came to the conclusion that I needed
to turn myself back to Allah Almighty to have
blessing and a peace of mind.
To show commitment to Allah (SWT) I chose to
wear Hijab, however, I was strongly encouraged by my mother because she started wearing hijab too, Alhamdulillah!

Hijab, one more part of wardrobe we wear more than other women.
I started with this modest way of dressing
during my teenage years (the period of our life
when we recognize our ideals). Back then I felt
brave because of hijab. It kind of made me be
more aware of the world and the people around me.
It really gave me some power and confidence
because the idea of hijab is like some self-help
book, which provides you with lot of ‘must do’
in order to become better!
Now, the people who do not like the idea of
wearing a head-scarf cannot imagine me
without it. They like me more this way. I
wanted to tell my story about how my hijab
affects me and the people in my life. They love
it. So I am sure I am doing the right thing.

By Shahina Bint Islam ( Birmingham, UK)
I’ve always known hijab to be an obligation
and an Islamic duty for Muslim women. Yet,
never felt confident enough to observe it as I
thought I was not ‘ready’. However, I loved and
envied sisters who covered themselves,
Masha’allah, they had a strength and
humbleness that I didn’t possess.
I started reading the Qur’an properly (English
Translation and Arabic Tajweed) and started
questioning life and death. Also, started
attending Islamic lectures, finally started
praying five times a day, without missing Fajr

By Juliana (MN, USA)
I actually wear hijab in secret. I am Christian
and Cherokee from Minneapolis, MN and it is
not widely accepted here. It is unlikely to
receive support from friends and some family.
Therefore, I only wear hijab when I know I will
not run into them.
I feel so much more comfortable covering up.
Hijab has been speaking to me for a long time
and World Hijab Day is the first day I will
proudly wear hijab in front of friends and family.
I am hoping I can find the courage to continue
wearing hijab happily and proudly for many
days to come after. It is hard without support,
but I think I have found truth in hijab.
I am such a better person when I am wearing
it. I am constantly reminded to pray and be
kind. I hope this day can help someone else
find the joys of hijab as I am finding now.

FROM A MODEL TO AN HIJABI
I was a playboy model, a playboy bunny, and
winner of FHM Malaysia’s most wanted woman 2013
But I left all my glitz and glamour modeling life
for my hijab. Because through my hijab, I found
that I am more than just my body, my vital
stats, or sexy poses in the magazines…
But most importantly, I found peace and Islam.

IS WORLD HIJAB DAY BIDA'H
Answered by Mufti Ismail Menk: NO
We cannot base global ideas only on our own
situation. We must deeply consider what is
happening to others too. Hijab is being banned
in a growing number of places. People are
misinformed regarding hijab. Democracies may soon vote to ban it based on majority view.
This had happened in some places. We need to educate them. If we don’t educate them we will be guilty of allowing misconceptions to grow without doing anything meaningful to educate and create positive awareness.
We can ask them to enroll to a one day school
can’t we? We can ask them to attend a seminaronce a year can’t we? We can ask them to distribute pamphlets can’t we? We can ask them to try it out and see how they feel can’t we?
There is no special salaah or thikr or ibaadah
but merely a one day school where pamphlets
are distributed, tables are set for street dawah
and people have the chance to clear their
misconceptions first hand and have a feel of
the hijab first hand.
|Re: World Hijab Day Nigeria -( Lagos) - 1st February 2015 by DMainMan: 6:25pm On Jan 31, 2015|
If you follow what’s happening in other places
you will appreciate the need to educate the
masses and encourage Muslims who have
succumbed to various types of pressure to
abandon what they believe is a duty or who
haven’t built the courage to adopt it yet etc
Those who call it a celebration, have failed to
see the light. Bid’ah is the last word to be used
because it doesn’t fall under any category of
acts of worship. It is merely a “means” of
educating, so the time and duration can be
worked out according to the convenience of all
parties to create the biggest impact. Such as a
school’s timings and duration of lessons and
number of pupils in the class and and and.
No celebration or partying.
No food and drink.
No sweets and chocolates.
No extra Qur’aan or prayers.
No acts of worship.
Only educating and awareness.
Street dawah tables at malls and stalls and flea markets every weekend have the same concept but on a smaller scale.
May Allah Almighty grant us a deep

My experience with the hijab!
I've had wonderful moments since I made the decision to start wearing the job, it wasn't fun at first.
I thought of those worldly things I had to let go of, like those tight-fitted dress and mini skirts and i said to myself would I still look attractive if I stop wearing those but it wasn't as hard as I thought. Ever since I started using the hijab I haven't felt more happier in my life, I can't even imagine my life without it.
The hijab has reflected in not just my appearance but my behavior as well, I'm more conscious of my utterance both in public and in private places. It's been such a pleasant experience!
I urge you the non-hijab wearing Muslims and the non Muslims to seize today's opportunity as a challenge to have a feel of the hijab and get your own first-hand experience. Ma salaam!

O gaaa oooo
DMainMan:O gaaa oooo
Brother abeg forget. All this your story is part of what the religion says I bet it with u with time it will become a celebration all will b for the fun of it. Why does the prophet stop some things is just because of d end result most things that av a good beginning which ppl bliv is truly good not within the ambient of religion but being cultivated into it always end in the wrong path.
Instead of dis nonsense day it should av been a parenting thing questioning them on why they av failed in there duty in child upbringing not this so called day.
I shake my head for this present muslim generation
The prophet saw said:
I advise u to fear God the exalted and d glorious, and to heard and obey ur leaders. Stick to my sunah and d way of well guided successor who are on the right path clench to it with the back of ur teeth and BEWARE OF INNOVATIONS (in religion) because each innovation is heresy and each heresy is a deviation from the right path (al-tirmidhi)
And on the issue of u saying is not an act then its what will it not b called ibadah moreover under what religion is it been carried out is it not Islam so y are u saying don't call it this don't call it that so far its been carried out under the religion of islam it must be within the tenet of islam my brother is an INNOVATION.

Nonsense! This is how maulud nabiyy started. From awareness to festivity. And some people will now start clamoring for holiday for this trash. And the worst part is that you won't see anything Islamic in the gathering. Follow the Qur'an and the Sunnah strictly and the deen will become easy and you enjoy your life.
