Styles of Hijab

Hijab Styles

Evening/Special events require someone to dress in a sophisticated and elegant way-that’s why it is good for all of us to have at least one classy outfit to wear just in case we might get invited somewhere in the last minute.

Although I believe nearly all of us, women, have more than five classy dresses in our wardrobe, when it comes to elegant and embellished Hijab, many fail to wear something that suits to the event, dress and of course, personal choice.

Maybe you don’t mind wearing an embellished Hijab filled with rhinestones and lace, while others want to keep it simple even when wearing a classy dress. But one thing is for sure, the styles below suit nearly everyone.

-Maybe dark colors don’t flatter you, but this gorgeous green classy hijab would totally match with your personality. Decorate it with beautiful rhinestones such as the ones in this picture.

-While rhinestones might be great, there are also small embellishments such as these cute bows which I think suit to young girls.

Nude Hijab colors are the definition of class and elegance and nothing better than a nude satin embellished hijab can make you look perfect for evening events.

Cute bow, leopard prints and golden shimmery hijab all in one. Although it is super cute I find it a bit over the top to my style but hey, this might look great on you!

-Very easy and trendy. perfect to wear daily also.

-I love embellished Hijab as well as it’s color. Really lovely

-You can use a simple brooch to style your hijab also. It doesn’t have to be just crystals and shimmer;you can keep it simple with a brooch and look stunning!

Different Types of Hijab

Types of Hijab

Most people think hijab is only for women. In fact hijab applies to both men and women. It can also apply to places or inanimate objects like a home or property.

Hijab for Men

Hijab does not only mean “head scarf” or the traditional long dress muslim women wear. The word “Hijab” literally means to cover up or hide. This can be applied to many different things including our body.

According to Islam, men must cover their bodies from the navel to the knees. The clothing also should not be so tight that it defines the private parts of our body. The clothing must not be see-through either to to be considered to be “hijab”.Types of Hijab

We already know how Hijab can be applied to what we wear, but it doesn’t stop there.

Hijab can also apply to what we look at with our eyes. So a man lowering his gaze when he sees a women, is also a type of Hijab.

Hijab for Our Homes

Our homes should be a place of privacy and security. Another type of hijab can apply to our property and our privacy.

For instance using drapes or curtains to cover our windows is a type of Hijab. A closed door protects our privacy and provides us with a type of “Hijab” as well.

What is Hijab? A guide to Hijab

The current climate with the acceleration of consciousness of Islam within Muslims and non-Muslims has resorted to a better understanding of what identifies a person as a Muslim.

What is Hijab?

The meaning of the word Muslim means “one who submits [to Allah]”, therefore the identity of a Muslim is one who adorns themselves with the Commands of Allah Shown by the beloved Prophet Muhammed (Peace Be upon Him).

There is a misconception that the external attire or clothing of a Muslim is relevant in identifying a Muslim, this is an incorrect assumption. A Muslim adheres to any actions as a means of attaining the pleasure of Allah and this is magnified if this fulfillment is done according to the Sunnah (Prophetic Way) of the beloved prophet of Allah (Peace be Upon him).

Therefore if a person wears a certain attire or clothing that is a traditional Islamic practice then this is because it is a Sunnah of the beloved Prophet of Allah (Peace be upon). In a popular Islamic magazine it was stated that a ‘hijab’ is the identity of a Muslim. This would be an incorrect definition as ‘hijab’ is a command of Allah and a command that serves specific purposes.

Let us look the definition according to Wiki, in light of the Islamic history:

Hijab or ħijāb (حجاب) is the Arabic term for “cover” (noun), based on the root حجب meaning “to veil, to cover (verb), to screen, to shelter”

In Islamic scholarship, hijab is given the wider meaning of modesty, privacy, and morality. The word used in the Quran for a headscarf or veil is khimār (خمار).
The Quran instructs Muslims to dress in a “modest” fashion. The following verses are generally interpreted as applying to all Muslim men and women.

Why do Muslim Women Wear Hijab?

In the following verse, Muslim women are asked to draw their jalābib (when they go out), as a measure to distinguish themselves from others, so that they are not harassed.

As can be seen from the above, Allah makes an explicit explanation about what is the definition of ‘hijab’ and the correct attire or clothing to be worn when outside the homes and that the adherence of it is a command of Allah and it should be reserved in this light.

However the modernists have manipulated the understanding of this and resort to believing that the ‘hijab’ is the noun for the headscarf. How does this sentence fair in a conversation, ‘I have to put on my screen [hijab]’ and then someone puts on a headscarf?! The worst thing is in regards to the adornment of the body whilst having a headscarf on.

Women of all ages, and more so prevalent within in younger women and children are putting on a headscarf but yet not at all conscious about displaying other parts of their body in what is in a sexual provocative manner.
