Hijab and Misconceptions

Many misconceptions related to the concept of Why Wear Hijab (Islamic covering for women) are the result of false customs and traditions, due to the absence of sound Islamic Creed, that lead to many baseless worries and obsessions. These misconceptions include:

Hijab is worn when the woman gets old: When the woman reaches a certain age and all her children are married, she starts paying attention to herself, performs Hajj, and adheres to the worship of her Lord. It is as if she knows in advance when she will die! It is as if she is certain that during that period she will be able to perform acts of worship that she was not used to performing before! It is as if she is certain that she will be able to do what she did not do before. How true is this proverb which says: “What has always been, always will be.”

Why Wear Hijab stands as an obstacle before a woman who is looking for a husband: According to popular belief, most suitors prefer a woman who exposes her adornment over the woman who is veiled. Even if the suitor is somewhat observant, he hopes to urge his fiancée to wear the Hijab after marriage so that he would attain the reward. However, this is not a general rule, even if it occurs in some cases. A woman who looks for a husband should know that “ Birds of a feather flock together.” When she abandons the Hijab, those who propose to her will not have the required level of religiousness and piety. In a Hadeeth (narration), the Prophet sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam ( may Allah exalt his mention ) said:

When a person proposes to you (matrimonial guardians to marry women under your guardianship) and you approve of his religiousness and morals, you should marry him; otherwise, there will be temptation on earth and widespread corruption.” [At-Tirmithi]
