Open Letter To Fashionable Muslimah.Take Note


A beautiful Open Letter indeed. Please share this around!

Dear Hijabista, Hijabister

I am writing to express my concern over the portrayal of 'hijab' women in
your magazine. I believe in the concept of modesty accompanying the
muslimah attire (the hijab included) is a fundamental core one must
embrace. The Hijab is not a replacement of the 'hair' we cover. The hijab
isn't just a cloth or layers of cloth on your head. It comes with a
package. Of intellect, manners and adab. It is a symbol of the believing
women, her 'modesty'- A sign of dignity and pride. Your magazine bears no
sign of 'modesty' and I say this clearly, this is definitely very WRONG!

Portraying hijab women and "doll-ing" them up like models in Vogue but then
only to cover her hair is an absolute disgrace and mockery to us the
believing women. What more the women and cover girls who allow themselves to
be exploited as an object and fool themselves into thinking they are on
their 'Deen' and pleasing Allah by just covering their hair... How can you
even think you are pleasing Allah with all that make up, ridiculous styles
whilst purposely showing off your beauty and body.

Your magazine just as the likes of vogue and cosmopolitan has NO
intellectual nor spiritual dimensions to it except to brainwash and create
an unnecessary desire to the 'hijabisters' to own more and more stuff. In
reality, a real, true believing women DOES not need to display her
adornments to entice others. The believing woman has self confidence that
what is INSIDE her heart and MIND will indeed be of much more value than
all the silly bangles, sunglasses, shoes and handbags you bombard the
pages of your magazine with.

Your magazine corrupts young, sincere minds into foolishly thinking that
they are more beautiful with more shoes, accessories or ridiculous tudung
styles they do not need.

The best garments as the Quran states is Taqwa. And tell me where, in which
page of your magazine do you propagate this message? None, not one I'm
afraid. It is clearly a consumer driven magazine casting a spell with
women, where one will then start to wish on owning and buying or to 'copy'
the 'Photoshop-ed' girls you portray.

I am afraid you are only destroying the hijab sisters filling their minds
with superficial beauty. Please take a sincere step back and help many lost
sisters out there to care more about diseases of their hearts instead of
merely emphasizing a message of "what is important is how you look and tie
your tudung'

    Betul. Setuju. Majalah yang hanya bertuliskan 'Hijab', 'Muslimah' tapi salah cara. To be honest aku kurang gemar dengan fashion turban tu semua. Nampak tak cantik. Maaf lah. Kadang2 kat insta, blog & mana2 pun tengok fashion sesetengah model,blogger muslimah agak terlampau. Sama2 kita fikirkan.


  1. yup... really agree with this post...
    Ia boleh mengundang salah faham tentang adab menutup aurat bagi kaum wanita. Risau gak... boleh jadi ia menjadi platform utk menarik lebih ramai wanita utk tutup aurat tapi dari segi lain ia tak melepasi syariat yg ditetapkan... :)

  2. Setuju sangat. Saya tak berhijab tapi saya faham apa erti hijab dengan sempurna. Bukan ketat, mekap tebal, baju nipis and nampak leher. Kena longgar, tutup dada and baju tak jarang. Fesyen turban sekarang ni obviously utk non-hijab, bukan for hijabista. Huu sorry terbanyak cakap padahal diri sendiri tak sempurna -_-

  3. tahun lepas gary pegi buat dance show kat international islamic fashion show. serious tak sangka design islamic macam tuh.. ada yang tak tutp aurat pun but still consider as islamic fashion.. hhmmm...

  4. betul! kadang kadang tengok certain muslimah bertudung terlalu over sangat sampai kita boleh terfikir. ni nak berfesyen ke nak berhijab. tak salah berfesyen tapi ada had laa :)

  5. Setuju jgk. Dlu suke tgk jgk tp makin hari nmpk makin pelik..,moga kite tak ke arah yg pelik tu.. Bertudung tp nmpk leher nmpk dada. Sigh* btw thanks for sharing :) suke tahap infiniti surat nih

  6. cantik memang cantik. tapi kdg2 over sikit. make up laa yg paling.....

  7. Couldn't agree more Najihah, fie beli Hijabista for only twice. Sebab fie rasa kandungan sama je, model semua pakaian agak kebaratan, tudung berlapis lapis. Tak menunjukkan apa yang sepatutnya ditonjolkan. Setuju dengan Moss, turban? Oh please, obvious dada.

  8. dah pakaian sendat, tudung xtutup sempurna.. hurmm, nk ckp lbh² pun xbrani
