I got this article from my best friend...... ================================== Hijab (A Piece of Clothing) "Yeah, I just got on the bus and I'm on my way home. Okay, Ami, Allah Hafiz." I slip my cell into my bag. A girl in a yellow tank top and dark blue cut-offs comes and sits into the seat beside me. "Ugh, I hate taking the bus, especially in this heat," she says. I nod and smile. She raises her eyebrows at the cloth wrapped around my head. "Aren't you hot in that?" she asks. The girl shoots another question. "Why do you wear that thing on your head anyway?" I fiddle with the clasp on my bag. I wonder what I should say. Why do I wear Hijab? The word ''Hijab comes from the arabic word "Hajaba" meaning to hide from view or conceal. Proper Hijab means loose clothes. Many people now a days think that if a female is wearing a Hijab she is an extreme Muslim. Where as that believe is completely wrong. Hijab does not only applies to clothes. It is a state of mind, behaviour, and lifestyle. Hijab celebrates a quality called Haya (modesty), a deep concern for preserving one's dignity. Hijab refers to the covering dress that Muslim women wear when they are outside their homes or in the presence of men not closely related to them. It identifies a Muslim woman as a person of high moral standards to reduce her chances of being harassed. In present days society has made women's desire to become `perfect objects'. The entertainment industry pressures teens to believe that for clothes, less is better. In schools and professional environments, women are more often judged by their looks or bodies. Hijab forces society to judge women for their value as human beings, with intellect, principles, and feelings. A woman in Hijab sends a message, "Deal with my brain, not my body!" It frees a woman from the pressure to `fit in'. She does not have to worry about wearing the right shade of eyeshadow or the right kind of jeans. A very good example of Hijab can be given as such that we all try to cover something if its precious. Like a pearl. The pearl, has been given a very tough and rugged Hijab - oyster shell. It protects it from sea animals and keeps it sparkling and shining inside. Thus, Hijab is not a symbol showing how extreme that female is as a Muslim but, it shows the desire to be protected like a pearl in its shell. x---------------x----------------x

to wikkid Salam...hii man!! hijab is not a cloth which u use and no meaning of it. As what its writen in holly Qur'an surah al Ahzab 33. OPEN that if u r muslim and READ it. Its not ordinary cloth, only choosen person who can wear that, coz Allaah has given her hidayah. This hijab is not to close hair only, but all part of woman body and of course based on adab to wear hijab. My question for u: Are u muslim?

Assalamualaikum, Mengutip article yang mbak tuliskan di blog ini bahwa hijab bukan sekedar berpakaian yang melindungi seluruh badan tapi juga melindungi pikiran, berprilaku dan gaya hidup...akhir-akhir ini saya melihat wanita muslim mengenakan hijab sebagai trend dan gaya hidup namun sikap dan prilaku masih seperti non muslim sementara banyak wanita muslim yang sangat ingin mengenakan hijab namun situasi dan kondisi belum memungkinkan baginya untuk mengikuti perintah Allah. Btw, lucu sekali putri kecil ini. Apakah dia putrinya Mbak muslimahjkt. Terima kasih. Wassalam, Yanti.
