Hijab Event 2013 - Hijab I'm In Love

Women and fashion are undeniably two things that cannot be separated. Of late, there has been a rise in the trend of fashionable hijabs. While this is seen as a positive development for hijabis, these alleged hijab whose initial purpose was to act as a clothing to cover up a sister's aurah, has turned into something that no longer truly represents the ideal image of a Muslim woman as portrayed by the Quran and sunnah.

“And stay in your houses, and do not display yourselves like that of the times of ignorance (jahiliyyah)...” (al-Ahzab, 33)

Prophet Muhammad SAW said:  “The woman is ‘Awrah, when she leaves [her home] Shaytān (satan - may Allah curse him) looks at her.” (at-Tirmidhi)

This main objective of this program is not to discourage all sisters from trying to cover themselves, but it serves as a platform of knowledge-sharing in gaining better understanding of the true definition of hijab and protecting a woman's aurah.

Prophet S.A.W said: “Haya comes from Eman; Eman leads to Paradise. Obscenity comes from antipathy; and antipathy leads to the fire.” (Sahih Al-Bukhari) A Muslim woman feels shy to do anything that would displease her Lord in any aspect. She has haya in her talk, she has haya in her gaze, she has haya in her clothing, she has haya in her walk”.

This event took place on the 2nd of February, 2013 at Masjid Asy-syakirin, KLCC with no charge at all.  We would like to thanked our generous sponsors and everyone who has made this event a success.  We do hope to see you again with an even meaningful and fun Hijab Event in the years coming, inshaallah.
