There are several different reasons why Muslim girls wear hijab. However, we have to realize wearing hijab is to maintain the modesty not only by our clothing, but also by our gaze. Wearing hijab for the right reasons will make us feel satisfied with ourselves. We should wear proper hijab to obey and please Allah (swt). Once we realize for what purpose and for whom we are wearing hijab, we will feel comfortable wearing it and we will be protected from all evil eyes.
In addition, we should wear hijab for ourselves because this way we will know that no one is forcing us to wear it, and we will not feel guilty or unsatisfied. When I used to go to High School, I knew a girl who used to wear hijab to show her parents. She used to wear hijab when she leaves the house, but she takes it out on her way to school. This way no one will never realize wearing hijab is not to make our parents happy instead it is Allah (swt) who we have to make happy and impress him with our deeds.
Furthermore, there are few girls who wear hijab so their parents can stop nagging Astakfirullah!!! I am a hijabi and I have many non-Muslim girls ask me question why do I wear hijab? Allhamdullilah I can answer them I wear proper hijab because I feel safe and protected from all evil. However, girls who wear hijab to stop their parents from nagging wouldn’t really know why they wear hijab which gives a wrong signal to a non- Muslim who is seeking knowledge of Islam. However, some people are curious and they will try to find it out from someone else, but what about those who aren’t that curious? When we wear hijab, we make identity which becomes our personality in front of non-Muslims. If we Muslims are in a crowd standing, anyone can glance at us and say we are Muslims. Allhamdullilah!
I remember a quotation from an anonymous source which reads “We all know that every precious thing is protected and covered like jewels and diamonds. Similarly, Allah (swt) consider muslim women as precious as diamonds”. 🙂
