I have always been fascinated by women wearing Hijab. I have been curious as to how to wear it, how does it feel to wear it and how would I look like if I would wear it.
For us ladies, our hair is our crowning glory. And our appearance is usually affected by our hairstyles. But what if we wear head covers? Will we look the same?
A hijab is a veil worn by some Muslim women in the presence of anyone outside of their immediate family, which usually covers the head and chest. Some women who follow Islam choose to wear the hijab as their religion and their God tells them to. The word ḥijāb in the Quran refers not to women’s clothing, but rather a spatial partition or curtain. The term can refer to any head, face, or body covering worn by Muslim women that conforms to a certain standard of modesty. Hijab can also be used to refer to the seclusion of women from men in the public sphere, or it may denote a metaphysical dimension, for example referring to “the veil which separates man or the world from God”. There is an exception to the men who are related to the woman ( their fathers, uncles, grandfathers, nephews, brothers and husbands). to be more specific any man that women cannot have a romantic relationship with. in this case,not wearing Hijab in front of these men are acceptable. – Source: Wikipedia
Yesterday, because I had so much time in my hands, I watched video tutorials on how to wear a hijab. I took my scarf and followed the tutorials however, though the size of my scarf isn’t enough, so I was only limited to two different styles. And here it is.
I still want to try wearing a hijab for one whole day just to know how it feels. I just don’t know when and I don’t know how I’m going to do it. I might give a shock to all my colleagues here if they see me running around with a head cover.
If you are wondering why I wanted to do this (to try wearing a Hijab), I also don’t know. I just get these kinds of ideas in my head, and sometimes, I just have to do it to satisfy my curiosity.
PS. I wonder why, on all her images, Mary (mother of Jesus) always had a head cover.
