I’m posting my comment here too before ppl start rioting in the comments lol this kinda sends the wrong message though, bc covering the face is not obligatory and this infographic makes it seem like it is. and the bottom left (blue outfit) is fine except the pants shouldn’t be tight. as long as it isn’t tight then having pants and a long dress/tunic is modest, kinda like salwar kameez where you cannot see the outline :) edit: adding on, you have to consider cultural norms. for example if you go to a country where everyone wears a burqa, you should wear a burqa to blend in and not attract attention to yourself, but if you wear a burqa in say a western country, you’re going to actually stand out!! really important to consider culture :)

You're wrong. Covering the face is obligatory. The clothes are the bottom are un-Islamic. Even shalwar-kameez is un-islamic to be worn outside, and according to scholars not allowed since shalwar is a trouser. Any trousers is haram for women unless they are under the abaya/jilbab and cannot be seen by others. You're wrong about the culture. You wear what is Islamic, not based on cultulre. If you are in the west then you still have to cover completely. Anything short of western clothes and lack hijab is going to stand out, so that logic makes no sense.


jennagem

this is your opinion but it is a valid opinion (actually majority of scholars) that hijab doesn’t require face to be covered. it’s even said that the face veil isn’t allowed during hajj according to some hadith. these kinds of posts make achieving hijab seem impossible, and Islam is simple

Majority of scholars of the Salaf say the face has to be covered.


Shahid9s

Even the real scholars who said that face veil was not required, believed that it was only under certain conditions when there is no fitna, no such condition exists today for them to say it's option. Even Sheikh Albani, who believed this, had his wives and daughters cover their face because no such condition exists. And this was before media/internet we have today. Face veil as a separate cloth is not allowed during ihraam (hajj/umrah) but the Prophet did order the women to pull down their head covering to cover their face when non-mahram were present. That is what the wives of the Prophet did during hajj. Hijab is not impossible, only those who don't want to practice will claim so. Simple is simple, its not difficult to cover the face.

Well youre not a woman so how can you know their experience or know that this is a simple matter? Many women I know complain about the heat when wearing the khimar during the hot days of summer. Can you imagine how difficult it would be for working muslim women if they were forced to wear the niqab during a hot and humid day? Muslim men who only know how to give dictates derived from their own flawed interpretations of Islam to make womens lives harder need to have a little bit of empathy and maybe lower their gaze before asking women who are already more covered than the average man to cover up their faces.


Shahid9s

Being a woman does not give them a green light to oppose what is Islam. Their gender or experience does not generate Islamic knowledge. The Prophet was a man, so were the Sahaba, and their descendents who taught Islam. The women in Arabia lived in the desert without any A/C yet they covered themselves. They actually did physical labor outside too yet they did not remove their correct Islamic hijab. What you presented are not valid excuses. Nor what you said is valid at all or not sinful. It was Umar (r.a) who desired that the wives of the Prophet did hijab, and it was Allah who revealed the verses of hijab after that, and it was the Prophet who taught these verses to the Muslims, and it was those Muslim men who had their womefolk cover, and it was those Muslim women (including the wives, and daughters of the Prophet) who covered themselves (incluidng their face). It is them all you accuse of lying and "deriving flawed interpreation of Islam". People like you need knowledge, not empathy from the "evil" men.

Youre an extreme minority. Ive never heard any of my Islamic school teachers or shiekhs say that the face is awrah. Maybe you'd be at home in Afghanistan.
