Wanita dan HIJABNYA

assalamualaikum, im back~

hari ni lemon nak share pasal hijab yakni tudung. sesungguhnya, wanita2, sangat, sangat bertuah kerana Allah mmenyuruh kita menutup aurat. tersangat amatlah banyak faedah kita pakai tudung ni. tapi sayang ramai yang suka slh anggap bahawa tudung ini adalah sejenis penindasan, walhal tudung adalah satu lambang kebebasan sebenarnya. lemon tak nak cakap banyak, tapi lemon nak share je pengalaman orang lain, yg dlm keadaan lebih susah nak tutup aurat.

sebelum tu, kenapa kita pakai tudung ? ni ha antara jawapan nyeeee

To Please Our Creator

Muslims recognize God Almighty as the grand creator and supreme authority over the universe, and hence the religion He has sent – Islam – is a complete way of life for us. 

Taking a Stand against Female Exploitation

Since the beginning of time, women have always been exploited. Known for our gentleness, delicateness, and beauty, women are often used as mere objects to attract men or sell products and services. Unfortunately, today a woman's physical beauty is likened to a man's trophy, to be shown off to the whole world. 

A Source of Protection

Of course, it is the men who are to be blamed for harassing women, yet the woman who fails to realize that dressing in a way which is so strikingly appealing (particularly when working in a male-dominated environment) is only asking for trouble is part of the problem as well. Regardless of where the blame lies, there is only one way by which a woman can guard herself against such evils, and that is why Hijabi women conceal their beauty in public as much as possible.

Preserving Our Beauty

Regardless of age or marital status, every female loves attention and being cared for. For most women, satisfying that need comes from compliments of others in private and public. Muslim women who conceal their physical points of attraction in public only seek that attention from their loved ones in private. The logic behind this practice is almost convincing enough to experiment.

To Be Judged for Our Worth, Not Our Appearance

Often labeled as oppressive, many fail to realize that the Hijab truly empowers every female with the ability to control how she is treated and respected in society, her safety, and who deserves to see her beauty, all while making a statement against female exploitation. A woman who observes the Hijab is freeing herself of society's immoral and disrespectful expectations of her

dialog ni walau pnjg pun sgt menarik. baca2
A converstion among muslim sisters

"I'm so tired."
"Tired of what?"
"Of all these people judging me."
"Who judged you?"
"Like that woman, every time I sit with her, she tells me to wear hijab."
"Oh, hijab and music! The mother of all topics!"
"Yeah! I listen to music without hijab…haha!"
"Maybe she was just giving you advice."
"I don't need her advice. I know my religion. Can`t she mind her own
"Maybe you misunderstood. She was just being nice."
"Keeping out of my business, that would be nice..."
"But it's her duty to encourage you do to good."
"Trust me. That was no encouragement. And what do you mean `good` ?"
"Well, wearing hijab, that would be a good thing to do."
"Says who?"
"It's in the Qur'an, isn't it?"
"Yes. She did quote me something."
"She said Surah Nur, and other places of the Qur'an."
"Yes, but it's not a big sin anyway. Helping people and praying is more
"True. But big things start with small things."
"That's a good point, but what you wear is not important. What's important
is to have a good healthy heart."
"What you wear is not important?"
"That's what I said."
"Then why do you spend an hour every morning fixing up?"
"What do you mean?"
"You spend money on cosmetics, not to mention all the time you spend on
fixing your hair and low-carb dieting."
"So, your appearance IS important."
"No. I said wearing hijab is not an important thing in religion."
"If it's not an important thing in religion, why is it mentioned in the Holy
"You know I can't follow all that's in Qur'an."
"You mean God tells you something to do, you disobey and then it's OK?"
"Yes. God is forgiving."
"God is forgiving to those who repent and do not repeat their mistakes."
"Says who?"
"Says the same book that tells you to cover."
"But I don't like hijab, it limits my freedom."
"But the lotions, lipsticks, mascara and other cosmetics set you free?!
What`s your definition of freedom anyway?"
"Freedom is in doing whatever you like to do."
"No. Freedom is in doing the right thing, not in doing whatever we wish to do."
"Look! I've seen so many people who don't wear hijab and are nice people, and so many who wear hijab and are bad people."
"So what? There are people who are nice to you but are alcoholic. Should we all be alcoholics? You made a stupid point."
"I don't want to be an extremist or a fanatic. I'm OK the way I am without hijab."
"Then you are a secular fanatic. An extremist in disobeying God."
"You don't get it, if I wear hijab, who would marry me?!"
"So all these people with hijab never get married?!"
"Okay! What if I get married and my husband doesn't like it? And wants me to remove it?"
"What if your husband wants you to go out with him on a bank robbery?!"
"That's irrelevant, bank robbery is a crime."
"Disobeying your Creator is not a crime?"
"But then who would hire me?"
"A company that respects people for who they are."
"Not after 9-11"
"Yes. After 9-11. Don't you know about Hanan who just got into med school?
And the other one, what was her name, the girl who always wore a white hijab…ummm…"
"Yes. Yasmeen. She just finished her MBA and is now interning for GE."
"Why do you reduce religion to a piece of cloth anyway?"
"Why do you reduce womanhood to high heals and lipstick colors?"
"You didn't answer my question."
"In fact, I did. Hijab is not just a piece of cloth. It is obeying God in a difficult environment. It is courage, faith in action, and true womanhood.
But your short sleeves, tight pants…"
"That's called `fashion`, you live in a cave or
something? First of all, hijab was founded by men who wanted to control
"Really? I did not know men could control women by hijab."
"Yes. That's what it is."
"What about the women who fight their husbands to wear hijab? And women in France who are forced to remove their hijab by men? What do you say about that?"
"Well, that's different."
"What difference? The woman who asked you to wear hijab…she was a woman, right?"
"Right, but…"
"But fashions that are designed and promoted by male-dominated corporations, set you free? Men have no control on exposing women and using them as a commodity?! Give me a break!"
"Wait, let me finish, I was saying…"
"Saying what? You think that men control women by hijab?"
"Specifically how?"
"By telling women how and what to wear, dummy!"
"Doesn't TV, magazines and movies tell you what to wear, and how to be `attractive'?"
"Of course, it's fashion."
"Isn't that control? Pressuring you to wear what they want you to wear?"
"Not just controlling you, but also controlling the market."
"What do you mean?"
"I mean, you are told to look skinny and anorexic like that woman on the cover of the magazine, by men who design those magazines and sell those products."
"I don't get it. What does hijab have to do with products."
"It has everything to do with that. Don't you see? Hijab is a threat to consumerism, women who spend billions of dollars to look skinny and live by standards of fashion designed by men…and then here is Islam, saying trash all that nonsense and focus on your soul, not on your looks, and do not worry what men think of your looks."
"Like I don't have to buy hijab? Isn't hijab a product?"
"Yes, it is. It is a product that sets you free from male-dominated consumerism."
"Stop lecturing me! I WILL NOT WEAR HIJAB!
It is awkward, outdated, and totally not suitable for this society ... Moreover, I am only 20 and too young to wear hijab!"
"Fine. Say that to your Lord, when you face Him on Judgment Day."
"Shut up and I don't want to hear more about hijab niqab schmijab Punjab!"
She stared at the mirror, tired of arguing with herself all this time.
Successful enough, she managed to shut the voices in her head, with her own opinions triumphant in victory on the matter, and a final modern decision accepted by the society - but rejected by the Faith:
"Yes!" - to curls on the hair - "No!" - to hijab!

"And he (/she) is indeed a failure who corrupts it [the soul]!"
[Holy Quran 91:10]

"Nay! You prefer the life of this world; While the hereafter is better and more lasting."
[Holy Quran: 87:16-17]

"You are the best community (Ummah) raised up for (the benefit of) humanity; enjoining what is right and forbidding what is wrong and believing in Allah."
[Holy Quran: 3:110]

sebenarnya, terang lagi nyata  byk sgt kebaikan pakai tudung, cuma mungkin kita x jelas, sebab kita x alami kesusahan bila nak bertudung ni. kalau muslim lain yg kat luar negara semua diuji dgn mcm2 persoalan dr non-muslim, dan mereka juga ala2 diboikot gitu. 

haa, nak tau x ? ada buku yg dikeluarkan dari UK rasanye, btajuk does my head look big in this ? ttg seorang remaja yg mula bertudung pastu dia lalui plbagai cabaran lah. ni bukunyeeeee

When sixteen-year-old Amal decides to wear the hijab full-time, her entire world changes, all because of a piece of cloth...

Sixteen-year-old Amal makes the decision to start wearing the hijab full- time and everyone has a reaction. Her parents, her teachers, her friends, people on the street. But she stands by her decision to embrace her faith and all that it is, even if it does make her a little different from everyone else.

Can she handle the taunts of "towel head," the prejudice of her classmates, and still attract the cutest boy in school? Brilliantly funny and poignant, Randa Abdel-Fattah's debut novel will strike a chord in all teenage readers, no matter what their beliefs.

sori la banyak pulak nak share. sekarang, moh tengok video ni pulakk. best sangat seorang arab ni bsyair tentang wanita btudung ni lah. jemput tengok~

ha tengok ni pulak, ceramah ringkas tentang wanita bhijab

sori banyak in english, sebab lemon suka tengok cabaran dorg ni sume nak betudung di negara luar, beza tak dgn negara kita ?

last but not least, xde masalah sebenarnya nak btudung, mmg tidak mudah nk mnjaga aurat kita sebaik-baiknya, tapi kebaikan yg kita tahu akan dtg dari menutup aurat ni inshaAllah memudahkan lagi kita untuk menjaga aurat sebaiknya.

plus, menutup aurat ni bukan menghalang kita dari berfesyen pun ke ape kan. leon tgok skrg mcm2 fesyen yg keluar untuk memudahkan wanita muslim menutup aurat. sekarang dah ada, shawl bidang besar, blaus2, cardigan2, and dresses yg longgar dan labuh, betul tak. contoh yg kita boleh tengok, macam denakamarulbahrin tu ha, elok je tutup aurat, tp bergaya what.
sila usha blog die~ 

ha, setakat tu je lah rasanye. byk sangat dah bebel ni~

sharing is caring :)

Tapi,berhati-hatilah pilih hijab yang betul2 ikut syariat...

nak tanya,betul ke hijab yang selalu orang indon pakai tu menyerupai perempuan biara?

Bagi saya,memang serupa kerana ia mendedahkan bentuk dada wanita.

Apa pendapat anda????

eh tudung indon yg mcm mane rupa ni ? yg pin ketat kat leher ke ? emm, bg yg betul2 memahami pakai tudung ni, ye x buat gtu, sbb mmg ade rupa biarawati pun. tp bak kata ustz zul, bg yg x brape tahu, kalau dia dah pakai tudung tu, walau ape fesyen skali pun, kira molek lah. nt bila islam betul2 dilaksanakan kat negara kita, baru tegakkan cara pemakaian yg betul, skrg aim utk mengajak org pakai tudung dulu.
