Why Should We Wear Hijaab?

1- You please Allaah. You are obeying the commands of your Lord when you wear the hijaab and you can expect great rewards in return.
2- It is Allaah's protection of your natural beauty. You are too precious to be "on display" for each man to see.
3-It is Allaah's preservation of your chastity.
4- Allaah purifies your heart and mind through the hijaab.
5- Allaah beautifies your inner and outer countenance with hijaab. Outwardly your hijaab reflects innocence, purity, modesty, shyness, serenity, contentment and obedience to your Lord. 6- Inwardly you cultivate the same.
7-Allaah defines your femininity through the hijaab. You are a woman who respects her womanhood. Allaah wants you to be respected by others, and for you to respect yourself.
8- Allaah raises your dignity through the hijaab. When a strange man looks at you, he respects you because he sees that you respect yourself.
9- Allaah protects your honour 100% through your hijaab. Men do not gaze at you in a sensual way, they do not approach you in a sensual way, and neither do they speak to you in a sensual way. Rather, a man holds you in high esteem and that is just by one glance at you!
10- Allaah gives you nobility through the hijaab. You are noble not degraded because you covered not naked.
11- Allaah demonstrates your equality as a Muslim woman through the hijaab. Your Lord bestows upon you equal worth as your male counterpart, and gives you a host of beautiful rights and liberties. You express your acceptance of these unique rights by putting on the hijaab.
Allaah defines your role as a Muslim woman through the hijaab. You are a someone with important duties. You are a reflection of a woman of action not idle pursuits. You display your sense of direction and purpose through your hijaab. You are someone that people take seriously.
12-Allaah expresses your independence through the hijaab. You are stating clearly that you are an obedient servant of the Greatest Master. You will obey no one else and follow no other way. 13- You are not a slave to any man, nor a slave to any nation. You are free and independent from all man-made systems.
14- Allaah gives you the freedom of movement and expression through the hijaab. You are able to move about and communicate without fear of harassment. Your hijaab gives you a unique confidence.
15- Allaah wants others to treat you – a Muslim woman - with kindness. And the hijaab brings about the best treatment of men towards you.
16- Allaah wants your beauty to be preserved and saved for just one man to enjoy – your husband.
17- Allaah helps you to enjoy a successful marriage through wearing hijaab. Because you reserve your beauty for one man alone, your husband's love for you increases, he cherishes you more, he respects you more and he honours you more. So your hijaab contributes to a successful and lasting marriage relationship.
18- Allaah brings about peace and stability in the society through the hijaab! Yes this is true! 19- Men do not cause corruption by forming illegal relationships because you - the Muslim woman - calm their passions. When a man looks at you, he feels at ease, not tempted to fornicate…

So a Muslim woman in hijaab is dignified, not dishonoured, noble, not degraded, liberated, not subjugated, purified, not sullied, independent, not a slave, protected, not exposed, respected, not laughed at, confident, not insecure, obedient, not a sinner, a guarded pearl, not a prostitute…

Cute Bling For Spring

Why Should we Strive to increase in Knowledge?

Shaykh Uthaymeen(Rahimahullah)said,"There is no doubt, the more a person increases in knowledge, naturally he increases in learning and differentiating the truth from the falsehood, and the harmful from the beneficial, and like this he reaches a level whereby Allaah bestows understanding upon him.
This is because taqwa is a means for strengthening understanding, and strong understanding assists in increasing knowledge.
So you see two men memorising an aayah from the Book of Allaah, one of them can extract from it three rulings, whilst the other is able to extract more than this, according to that which Allaah has blessed him with in understanding."

The Wise man does not Argue

Hasan Al Basri said,"The wise man does not argue or seek to overcome with stratagem rather he propagates his wisdom. If it is accepted he praises Allaah and if it is rejected he praises Allaah."

Yes, I stay shining
