first and foremost i will say that i chose to wear hijab. and i choose to wear hijab be cause i fear my lord. you have received lot of great ans. but i am going to paint u a picture so that you can see.
i use to date a lot, i had this one guy drive around the block just to see if he could get my #. Men use to try to talk to me ,ask me for my #, offer to buy me things etc... all be cause i am a tall thin drink of cool refreshing glass of water ( he said it not me(lol). ) back in the days when i had no knowledge of Islam i use to party like a rock star. well one nite there was a bar fight and man was it ugly and it started because the guy i was dancing with kept pulling @ my skirt. (the skirt was very ,very short) but what he didn't know is that i wasn't there alone, me and a few of my male family members would often go there on the weekends (well to make a long story short they kicked the do-do out of him all because of me & my short skirt. now that i am on the deen os islam i see some of those men and because i am dressed in hijab(they don't know it is me) the say excuse me sister, not sis or shorty.
they move out the way to let me pass and they give me respect. now true they should have done this from the start but whorespesct some one who dersses like a street walker?
i have been married 3 years t a wonderful man and i will admit when i met him i thought that he wuold be like most men, out to see if he could have sex with me. my hubby is every thing i was looking for.we don't fight about anything,he makes sure that i have every thing that i need,and he gives me most of what i want with in reason. men treat women acording to what they see. there are many types of women you have : A working woman or jerry springer watching woman. you have an modest dress woman or the mini skirt wearin,club hoppin,take any man buying her a drink type of woman there are many kind but reailty is that men only take home one the other one is just, something to do.
now to adreess the issue of the heat ( i still own the skirt).we oa should i say i wear short short for my hubby(in the house) but when i go in to the public i wear hijab. you may think that i look hot but what you didn't know is that i dont have on clothes(say yes to underwear).the garment that you see are made up of very thin fabrics. but because you didn't know you assume that they were hot and heavy. and i swa that some one said that we (men &women are told to lower our gaze) this is true. and my hijab is like comeing outside in my sleep ware (soft and moveable)
now i wold like to fill you in on something did you know that not just muslim women are supposed to dress in hijab?
