Respect and Advice

I have seen a lot of blogs about hijab fashion and what constitutes hijab and what is a hijab no no. I also noticed that in order to prove a point a picture of a sister who is not dress properly is used. I think that is disrespectful and we shouldn't do that. Personally I would be so devastated if I were to see one of my pictures from when I took my shahada out there for display. We should encourage sisters to dress properly but not with ridicule.

We use sites like polyvore to make hijabi sets but why can't we use them to create the 'look' that is a no no? we should also add a note to it though otherwise ppl might think its ok.

Like skinny jean phenomena happening you could use a set above instead of using an ACTUAL hijabi and as a result humiliating the sister. After all what is the purpose of your post in the end? t o educate sister to proper hijab or to be fodder for backbiting?

You're actually so right! I've never thought about it like that when I've saw those posts.

those fellow bloggers probably share the same view. i don't think it is malicious it is just misinformed.

Tuttie -- I understand what you are saying.

we are often so critical of each other as sisters and it sad, especially for those of us living in the west where society is not too supportive. It's even more critical that we support each other and provide constructive criticism to help bring each other up, and then by extension our whole ummah is lifted, not just put each other down like little girls on the playground....

Excellent post! And I can't agree more with what Dust n Roses said. We should be less critical & be more supportive of each other. It's tough enough to be a muslimah in this day & age.
