    Re: Jilbab

    sorry i dont live in UK but i get mine made. i used to buy them before but theyre such a rip off as binty said.

    wat u should do since u want one like right now is just buy a simple one from the store and buy material to get a few made. its not a rip off to just buy one.

    i got 2 more tailored just a couple weeks ago but the lady didnt make the sleeves right so make sure to be specific wen giving measurements.

    Masha-Allah, sis, thats really good to hear
    Ummm, the easiest way u can get one is to get it made, just buy some material and give it to ur tailor. Although i doubt it'll be made by monday...so ur only other option is to buy one.U should find it in any islamic shops. I agree with the others though, they are quite pricey...Heres the link to Hijab shop, u might find some u like in here.

    Dont worry about it sis, i know how you feel. i started wearing it last summer, none of my friends at college wore it. i was scared at first because i thaught everyone was going to stare at me and I didn't want to start wearing it for a while and take it off again but alhamdulilah i've not looked back ever since.
    If like me you always get late for college, just leave your PJ's on under your jilbab and no one will know.

    That's what I did. I bought one from a shop called 'Sakina' which was next door to Shepherd's Bush tube station. It was cotton and cost me about £30 but that was a few years ago I dunno if they've increased the prices.

    MashaAllah! It's great you want to start wearing it. If you live in an area where other sisters cover too then they shouldn't be that surprised. If not...then let them react how they want, you have made the decision and the right one indeed!Alhamdulilah.

    the best way to do it is buy material like the other sisters said. But since you want to wear it on Monday it would make sense to buy a ready made one. Where abouts do you live sis? Do you have any islamic shops near you?

    may Allah reward you, and make it easy for you!Aameen.

    if u live near whitechapel there r two shops that sell alright ones: 'Al Furqaan' and 'Madinah' they r priced about £20 each not bad.

    oh wow, i remember the day i started wearing abaya i was really happy and eexcited.

    may Allah accept our deeds and purify our hearts. Ameen!
