Request: Niqab Summer Style

Requested by niqabi Yasmeen, this post is about trendy summer style for niqabis. I think maxi dresses and skirts are a general must for hijabis and niqabis in the summer and I don't think that you should limit yourself to black abayas with black shaylas and a black face covering.. Speaking of which, I found some niqabs available cheaply from this site in almost every niqab colour under the sun, so no excuses :D

Actually, this abaya and niqab combo is rather nice, I like how the hijab is flipped over the head so the pattern is at the front:

Here are two outfits I put together for a niqabi in the sun, they can obviously be worn by hijabs and non hijabs too:

I love the maxi in this next one:

I hope these styles have helped! Sorry it's short I'm very sleepy lol :D

Islam is about modesty, and muslim woman´s beauty is in her heart and behaviour, not in provoking fashionable clothes shown on this web site. I am sorry sister, I guess you may do this from good will.. but really try to think. How much you want to be in paradise and how manz beautiful clothes you will have there if you give up such clothes in this life. Inshallah make duaa and ask Allah to guide you the right way to enter paradise. I wish to all muslim women to be proud of themselves and their beauty and cover it modestly. Allah with you.

Ameen, however I am not of the belief that colour is Haram. Also could you please use a name other than anonymous?

Thank you

im a young sister living in the west and i personally feel none of this is necessary, hijab is hiding beauty nd unveiling it, the pictures of the women in niqaabs and jilbabs r disgusting, thy are skin tight and each body part is visible!!!!!! LA HAWLA WA LA KUWATA!!! im not saying u shudnt wear colour but u r deforming the beauty of the veil and contorting it into horrible foul clothing!! we are not like the non muslims, we have honour and dignity!!1 MAY ALLAHH BLESS AND GUIDE US ALL ameen

very disturbing to see how muslims are trying to lose their deen to the way of the non muslims

Ya RABB ASTAGHFIRULLAH

To hidden veil (name is kind of redundant, but anyhow)

God made colours, no? Why would it be forbidden to wear them? That's *your* personal preference. Also, it's not really your right to judge others, is it? Focus on perfecting yourself, please, and honestly there are plenty of other peoples' websites you can leave your critical comments on...perhaps you can save your admonishments for Lady Gaga, not the owner of this wonderful blog :)

Mariam: Are you deluded?

Why are you denouncing someone who's correcting another (with valid justification) on a specific religious topic?

Change the world and ideology starts by changing one person. Save your Lady Gaga recommendations.

A topic about Islam, decorated with images supporting alcohol, drugs and prostitution isn't valid. Likewise, a topic about Islamic dress depicting modesty in an outfit that is not at all modest, is quite a schoolboy howler. Islam recommends modesty and humble human beings.

Sheeeeesh Anon, why don't you try making a hijab blog with ZERO slightly tight pics or whatever on it? Anyway you're meant to combine these things and wear them properly, as is made very clear on the blog.

Sarah: Thank you! I am getting very tired of having to defend myself on this blog :/

Assalamu'alaikum,

To the ladies who like to criticize: Mabruk, you are a significant motivation for many people to turn away from Islam. But I guess that's less important to you than criticizing a fellow Muslim. I pray for the figurative veils to be lifted from your eyes. May Allah swt help all of us.

For hidden niqab. Marshallah. For red rose.mariam stylish muslimah (loool.ur name gives it all away.) Get some basic knowledge then challenge hidden niqab. Y shouldnt u wear colours go and research the ahadith of rasooll pbuh. Sister if ppl directing u in the right path and advising u with good makes u feel.as if u want to leave the deen of Allah SWT then check ur imaaan.

Ammm..... It doesn't matter what any of u say, loud colors and tight fitting clothes is haram for women, and for the intelligent ones I wont have to explain why, as for those women who think otherwise, ur jus looking for a way to bring in the western with deen, and that doesn't mix; it's like oil and water.... , and for the sister who says she has to defend herself, u won't have to if u speak such confusing statements. And yes Allah made colors, but he also created alcohol and other haram stuff, including the pig; so does that mean ur going to indulge in it. Think before u speak. Allah created everything as a test for muslims; not for us to enjoy and make merry. Its either u make he sacrifice as a PROPER muslim woman, or u educate yourselves first.

Anon: Where do you live? In the West or in your own country?

Lol its entertaining how shallow minded ppl can be. All i can say is, do wat u do and il do what the PROPHET AND HIS WIVES TAUGHT me to do. Unlike u i don't change rules to fit my lifestyle, cuz thats no where in Quran or hadith. Instead i fit my lifestyle into the laws of deen, cuz thats the way to jannah. Other than that, u need to educate yourselves more about islam's TRUE teachings, not want u want it to b, in order to look modern. Islam is not modern, its simplicity and modesty. Instead i should ask u..... wHERE ARE YOU FROM ?!?? Yes islam is easy, but only for the ones who want to live just like the unbelievers because u feel intimidated by them. I am from the west, fortunately I'm not influenced like the weaker ones.

StylishMuslimah said...

Yes I will do what I do, and you can do what the Prophet (saw) and his wives told you to do, like go around calling people you don't know 'shallow minded' and 'weak'. I didn't know he did that but then again, I guess I need to go and educate myself!

Salam :)

Jazackallah. Wasalam :) oh and that was a general statement but if u took it to heart well.....

StylishMuslimah said...

I'm not the sort of person that gets offended if people point out something I do is wrong. I am totally open to criticism, at the end if the day I want to be a good person, but what I take to heart is the way people say things.

If you or anyone else thinks they know more about Islam than me, thats fine, you probabyl do! I know nothing, I accept that. But if you really want to get through to someone that you think is doing something wrong, it's better to say it politely, they're more likely to listen to you.

Salam

Im sorry but i was not intending to be offensive to you or anyone in particular, as i said it was generalized statements, and as i read before, im not the only one making such generalized statement, so y only argue wih me. Saying things such as shallow minded and weak are not harsh aswe hear them used in speeches an bayaans , and as i said, if u decided to take it as a personal statement, that was not intended and thsts totally up to u. We are here to defend islam and let othermuslims know how we're so eaily fooled and think what we're doing to keep Islam is just enough and right, when it is actually not.
Nobody in Islam knows too much .... But understanding a person's point without taking Personal insult to it , is the key to self improvement. Jazackallah this discussion was empowering. (Im signed off to messages)
