Ramadan is the ninth lunar month of the Islamic calendar seen as sacred by Muslims for which they refrain from eating, drinking and sexual activities from dawn to dusk for 29 or 30 days — depending on when a new crescent is sighted.
It is celebrated by more than one billion people worldwide. Ramadan is the first significant Muslim festival to fall during the Coronavirus lockdown.
In compliance with physical distancing by health authorities as means to check the spread of COVID-19, the Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA) has urged Muslims to shun congregational gatherings by staying at home.
The Blessed Month of Ramadan is a time of spiritual renewal for our Muslim brothers and sisters. It is a time for them to fully benefit from the many divine gifts that have been offered to the worshiper during this most special month.
In the spirit of the season, I will be celebrating our Muslim sisters and their fashion styles, especially in the use of Hijab.
In Islam, it is required of the female to dress modestly while encompassing modest virtues. Modesty is the means to all beauty. The hijab is something very personal to a Muslim woman as she wears it in obedience to her religious convictions. It is a symbolic piece worn by religious women of Islamic Faith.
Hijabs are also fashion accessories for women of Islamic faith. It is being wrapped from the head to the neck region of the body and they definitely love and appreciate this symbolic piece.
The number one rule for Muslim women when it comes to fashion is to cover their body appropriately; modesty and decency being their watchword.
With hijab styling, we’ve come to learn that modest fashion is so much more; it doesn’t have to be boring and it can be as chic as you wish it to be.
Fashion however doesn’t mean you can’t be modest. You can combine the two to create an awesome result.
Wearing hijabs has not hindered the trendy Muslim women to set their mark strongly in the world of fashion as well. Many international brands have recognized the hijab as an integral part of women’s dressing and introduced it in their product brands to cater to the Muslim niche. For women who love wearing designer or branded hijabs, one of the most interesting news lately was the launch of a beautiful floral hijab by the world-famous brand, Micheal Kors.
Hijabis as Muslim ladies who wear the hijab are called, also love to be trendy as well as observe their religious duty of being covered up. They want to look chic and stylish in them. And it’s justified of course, why shouldn’t hijabis follow the latest style trends?
I believe this is where a true fashionista is born. Even with restrictions, it is commendable that they still achieve an enviable fashion sense.
There are so many prints and materials used for Hijabs. We love how it’s used for religious purposes but still give one a unique and lovely look.
There are different ways you can rock Hijab; it doesn’t have to be boring and it can be as chic as you desire.
