The “New Hijab” styles

scarf headscarf


I just want to put a disclaimer before writing this that I am in no position in judging or refuting ayone who does this or has a strong feeling towards this, i am only here to know what is right and wrong and hear some of your thoughts on this and decide for myself.

Lately, I have been thinking to myself and seeing with my own two eyes the different types of Hijab styles there are in the world/social media, and one that i find pretty strange is the one where a sister wears the hijab but does not cover the front part of her hair? Is this permissble in Islam?, i have tried researching but have not yet found my answer for this. I fear to speak out to the young generation about this as the usual responses I get is "its my choice" "you're no one to judge and comment this i can wear it the way i want, i pray 5 times a day you cant judge me" however i am not judging, all i want is a simple answer whether or not this style of head covering is permissble or not.

If its possible please comment with authenticated research.
Jazakallahu Khairan.

I hope i have not offended anyone, that is purely NOT my intention to do so.

  1. It's not allowed and you're not judging anyone. Whoever said that you're judging tell them to read the book of Allaah and the rules and limitations on hijab. If they don't agree they can complain to the One who laid down the rules (Allaah).

    • Assalamu Alaikum.

      I agree with you, I just feel this hurt feeling when I see young sisters solely to follow a fshahion statement or a 'public figure' subhanallah May Allah guide them and us all Ameen.
      Thank you for the comment.

  2. It is not allowed.
    There are certain conditions and requirements of hijab.
    These type of styles that you are referring to are contradictory to the concept of hijab. Hijab is a crown of a Muslimah which is meant to conceal her beauty.

    And your question is necessary, I don't find it offensive at all.
    Thank you for raising it.

    Your Sister in Islam

    • I hope that's not the way you talk to girls because you could possibly set someone back and they won't wear it at all and possibly start thinking there's also no point to pray if not covered. People that are weak in faith or don't have much knowledge will behave this way unfortunately, and they don't need you throwing shade. They need love and proof.

      • Rebel, I approved your comment after editing it heavily to remove all the insults. Your tone is not appropriate for this website, and not an appropriate way for one Muslim to address another. I've placed you on mod status. If you can't be polite, I'll ban you.

      • I believe the original poster asked what the Islamic position is on hijab, not for an opinion - that is what I have provided, from the little knowledge I have.

        I have provided the Islamic position, not my opinion.

        Apologies - as it seems you have been offended by my response for some reason.
        Not my intention at all.

        Your Sis in Islam

    • Thank you for your comment! Was pleasent and helpful to read, these topics are very delicate and must be handled with care if not many people do take offense I'm not too sure why. But jazakallahuKahir sister for the comment really appreciate it.

      Assalamu Alaikum.


  3. Aselam o alaikum @ Wael/ other editor,

    Apologies as I am aware that this should not be posted here, but I'm unsure where to post it.

    I would like to address something to you, how can I contact you on here privately?
    It is quite important and I would appreciate a response.

    JazakAllah khayr

    Assalam O Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa baraqatuh sis ❤ ramadan mubarak
    May you get the best out of this month.
    The whole purpose of hijab is to cover your hair, your assets. They are all wrong and I hope Allah guides them but something tells me they do it on purpose. Why are they even wearing hijab if it covers only half of their hair? Obviously they are wrong and unfortunately it's becoming a tradition among so many western muslims. There is no use of wearing a hijab which shows all your hair, and if that's not enough, they do their best to resemble kafir wearing tight clothes and all. Plus they use it as a beauty boaster, wearing makeup and purposely tying their hair in high buns, not sure if that's the term. THERE'S EVEN A HADITH ABOUT THIS: Holy Prophet SAW said: "There are two types of the people of Hell that I have not seen yet: men with whips like the tails of cattle, with which they strike the people, and women who are clothed yet naked, walking with an enticing gait, with something on their heads that looks like the humps of camels, leaning to one side. They will never enter Paradise or even smell its fragrance" Sahih Bukhari
    That's what he(saw) means when referring to 'camel humps', just google turban hijabs if you don't get it. And i'm not talking about those who style their hair in a bun before wearing hijab, even I do that, but I don't do it to look beautiful. It just makes hanging around in a hijab much easier and comfortable, especially in the heat and I don't tie it THAT high nor do I pull my hijab around it over and over to make it seem even bigger. And about the makeup, I guess its slightly better than being basically naked with a 'hijab' on.
    I hope that clears up your confusion 🙂

    • Assalamu Alaikum.

      I agree with you sister, some may have their reasons of doing it that way, many may do it purposely or just for fashion statement only Allah knows. Lately, I have been going through my social media and all i see is companies portraying these clothing which are tight fitted and where the body shape is visible I honestly believe that people don't understand the lengths of the reasons of wearing such clothings like this. Make up is a whole other story, in my opinion the way Allah has created that is the way you should show to other people, why hide it under all those layers of foundation and other substances? Are you that ashamed ? it hurts me just typing this but it is the truth about this generation now. JazakhallahuKhair for the comment sister honestly. May Allah cherish you and your family inshallah.

      Maliha..a xx
