Indian Hijab Style

The colourful world of India is where we're going for the next instalment of around the world hijab style. Although similar to Pakistani fashion which I have already done a post on, there are some key differences between the two countries trends.

I dug up a lot of photos for this post so I will only post my favorites..

First, well I haven't seen one of these before - an Indian sari with a hijab, lovely! That red is so vibrant and bold:

Indians certainly heart their patterns and colours, this mum has thrown them on like it's no ones business and the end result is quite stunning, I like the material shes tossed over her head:

Aw, I wonder why they're sad.. at least their hijabs are nice though, I love polka dots!

This has to be my fave pic, the colours are wonderful and that bright orange dress is great for the beach:

Here is a beach outfit I put together, inspired by these bright, vibrant tones:

Indian Hijab Styles

One scarf, 3 styles from 3 Indian school girls:

I found quite a few Indian hijab photos so I have put the nicest ones together:

I really like the loosely wrapped goldy coloured one too, so pretty ^-^ And last but not least, Muslimah pals praying together, cute hijabs!

This post was done by the request of JaLpArI, hope you liked it! :D

It's interesting that in India alot of women both Muslim and non-Muslim wear veils over their heads and faces. They also practice purdah even if they are not Muslim.

thank you thank you thank you :)

you see that gal in the last pic, the one who is at the left... that's how most of us pray, especially those who dont wear hijab,... coz, if we r wearing hijab, we wudn need to wrap the dupatta round the head.... i too prayed in the same way, before i started with the headscarf... i coveed my hands, though...

now, ther's a litl questn i'd ask you...
plz help me in this one...

you see that pic of the lady with her baby??? shez wearing a salwar kameez, but her dupatta doesnt cover her chest.... dyu think that is ok???
i mean, we indians are very particular bout the chest being covered with the dupatta...but, dyu thinnk if the shape isnt very obviously visible, can we keep it round the neck, or one sided??? i wil link a pic, so that you may understand....

How are they praying without their arms covered enough? They are only making dua in the picture, it's ok, but if they were praying fard, obligatory prayer, salah (namaz), it would not be valid (it is not acceptable, for prayer you must cover all the awrah properly and the forearms are the part of al-awrah. No excuse. I'm sure they only wear their headscarves for prayer, too. Most of Pakistani Muslim women do not even wear any hijab at all, do not observe any purdah, at least those living in the West. But even in Pakistan I've seen as many unIslamically dressed women everywhere, as fully wraped in burka's and niqabs... lol

Jalparl: As long as the chest is covered with loose clothes its okay to not pull your headscarf down to cover it. In the time of the Prophet (S) the womens dresses were often low cut at the chest which is why they were told to pull their headcoverings down to cover themselves. with the pic you sent, you would have to cover the upper chest area with the headscarf but if the top is not tight on you then you wont need to pull the scarf further down to cover the breasts. Its really pretty by the way! :D Zaenab xx
