Muslimah Fashion Show

On Saturday, December 27, 2008, we went to Fun Muslimah Fashion Show.
The organizers (Muslimah Scouts and all the sisters), especially sister Matiniah, were doing very well job.
Thank you very much for inviting the girls.
Alhamdulillah, the kids were really enjoying it.

I think the "Muslimah Fashion Show" is also good dakwa. We need this kind of event to help our generation to practice the religion because religion is our way of life.

Alot of people, especially non Muslim, do not know that Muslim cloth is part of our religion. We need it because of Allah's command. The verse of 59 of surah Al Ahzab urges muslim woman to wear the jilbab. A jilbab means the outer garment over inner garment to guarantee that the body is covered and does not show or shape any part of her body.

"O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughter and the woman of the believers to bring down over themselves (part) of their outer garments. That is more suitable that they will be known and not be abused. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful."
Surah Al-Ahzab (33:59)

We need our muslimah's cloth as covering up our beauty, as our praying garment, as our outer cloth. We also need our good characters and manner, too.
Muslim woman should wear jilbab to remain modestly attired in public. We can look beautiful with our hijab and muslimah's cloth.

Insha Allah, with this Fashion Show, the people (Muslim and Non Muslim) will learn and understand that muslimah's cloth is part of our religion.

We knew that Allah's command is to make our life easy and safe.
Allah knew which is the best for us.
Let's teach our kids to wear the Muslimah cloth since they are young as soon as possible.

Some of other conditions about muslimah's cloth are:

  • it should be loose.

  • it should not be transparent.

  • it should not become attraction.

  • and it should not resemble the clothing of men.
