"If you want to be holy, if you seek meaning in your life, start looking into your own life and attacking your pride in all of its many forms. God will give you extraordinary light and the ultimate reward of holiness. For your holiness relies not on what you do, but on what you allow God to do through you. Have courage. God will perfect you."
It was narrated from Safiyyah bint Shaybah that ‘Aa’ishah (may Allaah be pleased with her) used to say:
When these words were revealed – “and to draw their veils all over Juyoobihinna (i.e. their bodies, faces, necks and bosoms)” – they took their izaars (a kind of garment) and tore them from the edges and covered their faces with them.
Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 4481.
Wearing hijab is tough, it may just seem like something I wrap around my head everyday but honestly sometimes it’s a drag. I feel so bad for even saying that but it’s true. Sometimes it’s such a struggle and I just don’t feel my hijab at all. At the end of the day hijabis are normal girls too, we have hair and we want to show it off as well! I do miss the feeling of the cold crisp wind through my hair, the various hairstyles or colours to show off and so on. I have struggled with my hijab and often debated with myself as to why I’m even wearing it, I mean just by wearing a hijab doesn’t make me perfect does it? I often have conversations with my husband about the meaning of hijab and what his opinion on it is. Yes I cover my hair and dress modestly but I still have many many flaws. Being hijabi doesn’t mean you’re exempt from doing any wrong, I’m guilty of many things and sometimes I sit back and think Sehrish you’re wearing a hijab but why aren’t you praying on time? Why aren’t you making up your missed fasts from Ramadan? Why aren’t you practising patience? Like what the hell is wrong with me?! I get so guilt-ridden and need a right kick up my backside to change, change for the better, for myself and for my Lord. I wear my hijab for my faith, my identity and if I was to leave my home without it I’d feel incomplete, it’s so difficult to explain but that’s what it feels like, it’s a major part of me now and I’m so glad I took the decision as a mere teenager to wear it and I’ve never taken it off since alhamdulillah. May Allah swt grant me strength to maintain my modesty and hijab for the years to come InshaAllah. It’s so special to only have a select few men know what you look like with your hair out. My father, brother, my beautiful nephew and most importantly my husband. They all know the true Sehrish and honestly if my husband can accept me looking like an absolute hobo with my hair a major mess then I know he’s the One. Alhamdulillah for such a beautiful preservation of women’s beauty. It’s amazing how much of a difference your hair can make to your appearance. And yes I do miss having my hair out but I wouldn’t remove my hijab for anything or anyone 🧕🏽❤️
