  • Ever been to a wedding where...

    As soon as the Imam announces that he'll read a dua, all the dolled up auntyjees (that arrived uncovered in the first place) and their daughters pull up their see through dupattas halfway over their heads. As soon as the dua is over they pull the dupattas back down again, like the coast is clear now, even though the room is half filled with men

    Well to people who don't usually cover, it's not about covering, it's just about showing respect, and from their point of view by covering their heads during the prayer they are showing respect to the religion.

    It's much like how sikh women cover their heads when they enter their temples and hindu's do the same I think too.

          Yeh I have and I find it a tad annoying..

          Who says you have to wear something on your head when Qur'aan is recited anyway?

          Its just ignorance and something for the individual to feel a little bit better about themselves.

          We know that to respect the Qur'aan is to follow its teachings.

          May Allah (SWT) guide them and all of us.

              ohhh the yoyo hijab....

              The yo-yo hijabs. The first yo-yo hijab, also known as the Benazir Bhutto hijab, is the scarf that keeps falling down and needs to be constantly pulled back up....up, down, up, down, just like a yo-yo. The second yo-yo hijab is also referred to as the convertible hijab. This type of hijab is predominant at any type of social event, i.e. an Aqeeqah, Bismillah party, Ameen party, wedding, etc.

              This is when an Imam or Qari comes up to the microphone and starts to recite Qur'an. At this point, all the convertible hijabs come up...until he says "Sadaqallahul atheem". I'm not sure, but apparently in some cultures that translates to "ok sisters, you may now take off your scarves". I'm sure this may seem odd, but what's even funnier is when people do not anticipate the recitation of Qur'an at a social event, and are forced to be creative and use accessories such as a purse to cover one's hair. I was surprised to see a women hold her purse over her head as "hijab"..as if the multitudes of men surrounding her are not a good enough reason to wear hijab, but some guy reciting du'a compels her to hold a purse over her head. Her friends were more creative...one friend used her dinner napkin. I was also laughing when I saw the communal hijab --> two or
              more girls draped under one dinner napkin during the recitation of Qur'an. Her other friend was still more creative. She used her coffee saucer on the back of her head. I wasn't sure if it was hijab or a Yamaka. I didn't know if she was a Muslim or a Jew. I felt like going up to her and saying "Shalom alaikum, sister". And, people should remember that hijab is not just a protection from guys, but from a girl's nafs (ego) as well. It should prevent girls from having to spend hours in front of the mirror doing her hair. But, unfortunately, you see girls in front of the mirror for hours doing their hijab as they would do their hair, with all sorts of elaborate braids and the like. I wanted to go up to a sister and say "Is your hijab naturally curly?". I also felt compelled to go up to another girl and say "pardon me, but is your hijab naturally that color, or did you dye it?".

              Well, the point to remember is that some people make an effort to wear hijab, but it is futile, because it is not fulfilling it's purpose. It's like using an umbrella with holes in it. Hijab is used for protection from guys as well as from the girl herself, and should not be used as an accessory or for beautifying one's self. Anyway, that's it. If anyone disagrees with me or is offended, then you are disagreeing with the teachings of Allah
              subhanahu wa Ta'ala.

                Re: Ever been to a wedding where...

                well i went to my uncle wedding (this was back home) all the gals in my family were the jilbab and the scarf. i thought they would cover on the wedding day but they didnt wen it came to the wedding day they took off everything. then wen the wedding was over they covered up again. and another thing men are very protected with gals e.g daughter, nieces. but when it came to the wedding day my uncle pushed me to the men side so i ate with my uncle, i was so embrassed. and also they let the men see the bride with her make up and her dress (which had short arms) then after the wedding my uncle told her to cover up ( but it was ok to show her beauty on the wedding day) some ppl man i would expect more from a muslim country.

                its really sad when you see muslim like this you feel like doing somthing, but in our culture the young arent meant to teach the elders. it brings tears to my eyes our beloved prophet did so much for us and yet we dnt care.

                may allah guide us ameen

                    i'm not sure,

                    if it's because of respect then why do it when the imam comes in? and how is that showing respect to someone?

                    if it's to show respect to Allah then why not do it all the time?

                    tbh i think it's more a cultural thing, similarly how so many people cover their heads for prayers claiming its sunnah!, as far as i know the Prophet (s.a.w) didn't cover his head in salah, rather it was covered all the time!

                    and anyway shouldn't these things be segregated?

                              Isn't half a scarf covering someones head better than no scarf covering the head?

                              I sense a bit of "i am more religious than you are" going on here.
