The Hijab and Its Functions

Assalamualaikum. Hye.

This entry is about hijab. Hijab is the dress code for muslims, men and women. However, in this post, I stress more on women and the jilbab (headscarf).

The hijab is not only a piece of cloth for a woman to put on their head. It means so much more.
Hijab is the symbol of faith. The universal way to silently, wordless, and humbly say "I am a muslimah, and I am proud of it."

Hijabers are protected. Although they are not becoming literally invulnerable (of course a piece of cloth won't protect you from a gunshot, for instance) but there is a protection upon them. At least we believe it comes from GOD himself, as the muslimahs are doing the jihad of upholding the sanctity of the Deen. They are burning under the hijab. Sweaty, sometimes suffocated, but they endure it. Even a man won't be able to hijab himself. Indeed in some occasions, the muslimahs are way stronger than the man.

So find the best reason for you to stay hijabed. Muslimahs, your role is big. Everyone has their part in Deen. Just remember that. The men jihad with their flesh and bone. Yours are unique. One of the jihad for women is to observe the aurah properly, as it requires more than just brute strength. It is a war of grace and beauty. The muslimahs nowadays are so fragile that they forgot how Allah already set them up high and free, but they degraded themselves. Putting themselves at lowlier places and bound to the slavery of fashion and trend, some even refuse to obey the command to wear hijab. Some are against those who preach about it. Some even compare between the hijabed and the not hijabed. All leads to fragmenting of the strength of the muslimahs, and it directly affects the whole deen.

Here are some functions of the hijab, apart from it's major role as to obey Allah.
  • Rather than wasting your money with hair vitamins, UV protector, et cetera, just put on a hijab to shield from harmful UV rays.
  • When I was 17 years old, I joined an expedition to hike Mount Kinabalu. The ustazah told us to get a snow cap. One boy said "If we buy a lot, we might get lower price. So boys, give names to me, and girls give names to her." The ustazah said "No need. For the girls, the tudung is lebih dari cukup dah."
  • Sometimes it takes about 20 minutes to set up your hair. Even hours to get a new look at the saloon. But just 5 minutes to wear a hijab and you'll be gorgeous, without having to show our skin.
  • If the wind is blowing hard, and your hair ends up like the Lion King, it won't happen if you put on a hijab.
  • On burning hot like hell sunny days, you don't have to worry people seeing your sweaty back or wet armpits if you wear hijab.
  • Hijab can help you save on make-ups.
  • You don't have to worry about your shape if you wear hijab with loose clothes. You will still look as pretty even without showing your body off to public.
  • Being secured in hijab raises your confidence. Try it.
  • There is no better way to look demure and sweet, than to have only your face revealed.
  • Less is more - Emma Watson.
  • Hijab is a safe way to dye your hair. It can be multicolor, with or without patterns, and vibrant. It even allow you to change appearance 10 times a day.
  • A rock chick playing guitar is cool. A hijabed rock is even cooler. Yuna is one example.
  • Hijab silently says "DON'T TOUCH ME!" so you are safer than those who are not hijabed.
  • Hijab, when equipped with needles and pins, is an excellent mode of weapon for girls to self defense. Just prick the guy who tries to touch you.
  • Bad guys don't mess with hijabed girls or ladies. Even if, they will feel shy for it.
  • A not-hijabed-before girls will receive compliments and prayers when they start to wear hijab. People will be happy for them and God is pleased. 
  • A hijabed-before girls will receive smiles and silent curses when they started to remove hijab. People will be unhappy because of them and God is not pleased. 

  • The simple hijab works best. If the hijab is too tremendous and stylised, the desired outcome may be dysfunctional. So don't be excessive with the hijab. Wear as the syara' requires, not as the trend or fashion requires. 
So please mind to use the hijab. It is special gift from God to the muslimahs.  Also, it's a special order. None of any kind of creature in this universe are created so beautifully that they have to hide their beauty with hijabs. Only women. So take it as a mission. Fulfill it, and be glorious.

If you ever see a muslimah with hijab is doing bad stuff, remember that the one to blame is the woman, not the hijab.

Kalau Putih Jangan Selapis

Assalamualaikum. Hye.

Walaupun aku selekeh, aku bukanlah buta fesyen langsung.

Sekurang2nya aku tahu perihal warna, which is kalau lelaki nak pakai pink, pastikan kulit tu tak gelap dan wajah juga tidaklah terlalu macho, misalnya. Kumpulan Jambu agak kiut memakai pink tapi mereka hanya dua orang, dan ada nama. Jangan kamu tiru buta2 saja.

Kadang2 aku rasa macamla aku pakai elok sangat nak kompelin2 orang lain kan tapi nak buat macam mana la lagi, kalau dah nampak sangat jelas dan ketara, pakaian tu tak ubah macam selapis kain yang diletak atas kulit secara sia2. Orang indon kata percuma. It supposed to be more than just a piece of cloth on the skin.

Nak solat misalnya, pakaian kena betul2 pakaian. 

Macam biasa di masjid sewaktu solat jumaat, aku akan duduk di belakang seseorang yang pakaian dia ada sumthin wrong. Nak salahkan takdirkah? Haritu pakai singkat dan ketat sampai nampak encik bon. Kali ni nak cerita pasal warna putih pulak.

Wahai penjubah2 / pemakai2 putih, putih itu suci. Warna yang sinomim dengan islam. Nanti di mekah masa ihram pun orang banyak pakai putih. Jadi tolong jangan bagi impression tak elok dengan baju/jubah putih.

Mesir ini panas (Malaysia pun) dan bila panas biasanya terang benderanglah. Warna putih pula, kalau kain tu nipis, dan kamu tak pakai apa2 di dalam, memang jadi wayang kulitlah. Logiknya, kalau boxer kamu orang boleh kira ada berapa jalur, maknanya kamu tak pakai seluar di dalamlah kan? Dan bila orang boleh nampak kesan bulging singlet kau bila kau tundukkan badan semasa rukuk atau sujud, maknanya jubah kau itu nipis. 

Aku tak tahulah adat kebiasaan di mesir macam mana. But it's not nice to watch stuff like that. Especially bila kau rukuk cepat dari aku, maka aku akan nampak boxer kau tu. Walaupun aku pandang bawah, confirmlah nampak jugak sebab field of view mata manusia normal macam aku bukannya takat 30 darjah je. Lebih dari itu okies?

Pakailah t-shirt, dan seluar. Tak pun kain pelikat ke apa. At least kalau nampak kotak2 dari bontot ke kaki, orang tahu kau pakai kain di dalam. Dan itu tidaklah geli. Kalau orang perempuan dilarang memakai yang jarang2, I suppose orang lelaki pun sama. 

So kalau malas nak pakai berlapis2, jangan pakai putih.
kalau nak pakai putih, jangan selapis.

Still, kalau kau tebalkan kain, putih tetap akan membenarkan cahaya menembusinya. Termasuklah apa warna sekali pun yang blended dengan putih. Pink, cyan, violet, hijau muda, dan lain2. Aku rasa pakai selapis lagi di dalam is the best solution. Kalau kamu rasa buruk kalau orang nampak corak t-shirt yang tah apa2 di sebalik jubah, maka pakailah t-shirt putih. Seluar panjang warna putih pun wujud dalam dunia ni. Baju Lady Gaga yang punyalah macam haram tu pun ada dibuat orang. Takkanlah setakat inner clothes warna putih kamu tak dapat cari?

Bayangkanlah, di depan kita ada orang pakai jubah putih. Sejuk mata memandang. Sekali dia bangun berdiri, nampak bentuk kaki dari tapak kaki sampai ke kelangkang. Pastu ada jalur2 di area gluteal. Tak ke kau rasa Eeeuuuww?

p/s :: Apa status solat orang lelaki yang pakai jarang sampai tembus ke dalam? I mean, kalau perempuan pakai jarang dikira tidak menutup aurat, lelaki pun samalah kan? Aku tak sure. Siapa tahu bolehlah share.

Thanks for reading. Bye ;)

Speech : Like You Will Have It Soon

Assalamualaikum. Hye.

Seriously, I never thought someone to be called a leader will have the heart to say something as much as this. It's weird. Why in the god's name he made such statement? Benci sangat ke?

So as to justify, I might not agree with neither the government nor the opposition, but I am surely against this. BERSIH or PATRIOT or whatsoever people that might want to show anything, just get on with it. Let's see what will happen to this nation.

Stupidly spoken. Congratulations. Oh yes what say you if we translate a song? The song is same. Lyrics only.

My nation,
The ground is spilt with my blood
People live in unity and prosperity
Bless and happiness is given by the God
Our King, safely throned

KAHKAHKAH sounds so silly...

I think it should be more like this ...

My damnation
the blood is pouring on the ground
People live in suffering all around
Prosperity is going down and drown
Our leaders, what the hell are they doing now?
Prosperity is going down and drown
Our leaders, what the hell are they doing now?
