Just to get some things straight

In light of some recent comments made across this blog I want to set the record straight on a few things:

1. This blog is not intended to tell you how you should or should not wear your hijabs, or doing anything else for that matter. Quite frankly, I don't care if you choose to walk around in a headscarf and a mini skirt or a full-on tent.

2. I personally dislike the niqaab, I think it is unnecessary and purely cultural - I will always hold this opinion so please deal with it somewhere outside of the comments section.

3. I don't hate Jews or any single group of people. I do hate anyone that oppresses another human being, be they Jewish, Muslim or anything else.

4. If you feel that music, style, perfume, makeup, colour and/or non-abaya-wearing hijabis are haraam, don't tell me about it. I have better things to do than read and reply to your essay.
 
5. If you feel that my blog is haraam because I am encouraging people to "copy kafirs" and wear "haraam clothes", don't tell me about it. I have better things to do than read and reply to your essay. Like figure out which colour stilettos will best go with my jeggings that day.

Hehehe agree with everything but niqab point. While I think I find it rare to find non-cultural niqab wearers, I do believe there is a basis for niqab (not necessarily an affixed veil but covering one's face) in Islamic evidence. Not enough to make it fard, but certainly enough to describe some benefits to the practice:)

But I still think people affixed to these things should remember your "remember to pray?" post. Alot of people concerned in small insignificant details forget major ones. Like salat;)

Peace:)

I say go with red leggings.

Sabina: You are so talented in makeup mA! I love your blog!

beingFab: That would be awesome but fatwas only ever seem to be made about women not being allowed to do things.

OPNO: Yes, there are definitely more important things.. Like say, I don't know, the pillars of Islam maybe..? :D

Red? I like it :) Thanks man!

not being rude ukhti but niqab is not cultural at all
if people don't want to witness "HARAM" then they should simply not read your suff.
simples .

In your opinion it's not cultural, in my opinion it is 100% cultural.

Wow! just discovered your blog! your amaazzzing! you sound alot like myself,and i love what you were saying,people are so judgemental. I think your Awesome and wearing clothes which make you feel beautiful,comfortable and is still within the boundries of hijab doesnt make you a kafir,or a copying them. people need to get there facts straight and FYI it is haraam to judge! love to hear more on your blog
