Assalamualaikum to my Muslim brothers and sisters, To Mr AbuLolo, Why so angry when I said about prayer garment? Are you a True muslim or just an HYPOCRITE? Or just using Muslim identity for your Evil PROPAGANDA. In greeting, you prefer to use the word HI.A True Muslim prefer to use the word Assalamualaikum to greet the other Muslims. Why are you afraid or shame to use the word Assalamualaikum? In your comment you prefer to use the word God, why not using Allah. Are you ashame or afraid to use the word Allah. Even non-Muslim use the word God or Lord. So, when you want to use the word freedom in Muslim dressing code, may be you could ask Allah to give freedom to the Muslim women, just for your benefits and desires. May be you could ask freedom from the Christian priest to give freedom to the Christian nuns, who wear so modestly, cover their heads, wear long sleeve and seldom wear bright colours. May you could tell the Christian Nuns no need to cover their heads with veil in church because the Christian Priests are their Father. ONLY STUPID PEOPLE ARE EASILY INFLUENCED BY ABULOLO.

Hi, God bless your soul and enlighten your mind. One thing every muslim agrees is that you can pray to God in any color. Another fact that everyone agrees is that prayer is a communication toward GOD and you can conclude that your relationship to GOD is more important than anything else and I believe if GOD was aware of any harm in color he would make a statement on that. Unfortunately lots of people have started to come up with recommandation which does not always go along with GOD's words. You need to be very careful not to follow the fools and find the truth. My recommandation is: God wants us to be brothers and sisters. If someone stands in the mosque looking at your wrest and face or any other section of your body, he/she is defenetly no muslim. So don't give your freedom to none-muslims as freedom is the only thing distingushes God from Evil. God may enlighten your soul Your brother, Abu Lulu

Assalamualaikum to my muslim brothers and sisters, Dear sister (Author), Congratulations for choosing Islam for your last destination. You are the choosen and the bless ones by Allah. Sister, you could pray in the mosque or at home. But the rewards will be more if you pray together with other muslims in a group or jamaah. There is no specific colour for the praying, but white is the most recommended. Try not to choose bright colours, afraid that these colours could distract you or the other muslims from concentrating their praying and and what they recite in praying. In praying every parts of the woman body must be covered except the face and the hands. The woman wrist must be covered and the face chin must also be covered because these are parts of the aurat which could not be seen by others. The prayer garments must not be transparent where the skin body could be seen. When you are doing the prostration or sujud, your forehead (your skin) must touch the ground or the prayer mat. That meant when you do the prostration or the sujud, your forehead must not cover with your hijab. In south-east Asian country, examples like Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, our prayer garments for woman is about the same. Mostly white in colour, loose (not tight) and comfortable. But is used only during praying. But after praying, most of them removed the garments and retain the inside garments as usual Muslimah clothings and hijab. Example of this praying garment, I think you could browse to the topic or blog of sister muslimahjkt in topic 'tests of Allah'. It showing a child praying at the praying mat. It is a very cute picture..... This garment is not compulsory but is just a guidance. My advice, please gain knowledge in Islam, how to pray, fast, etc, etc,.......so that you could fulfill your duties as a good muslim. If there is no beginner classes in your area, you could get help from any good muslims to teach you all these, the acting and also the recitation in praying and etc, etc..... May Allah bless you and give your the ease and strength to fulfill your duties as good muslimah,Amiin. Your sister in Islam.
