For today  it’s about being a veiled girl in the society. People have the mind set that when you are veiled you are uneducated or doors are shut for you among other. Which is false. It only discourages people, girls not to obey Allah’s order thus living in the wrong life.

By veil I mean Hijabi, niqabi or even just wearing clothes that covers your entire body as mentioned in the Qur’an :

وَقُل لِّلْمُؤْمِنَاتِ يَغْضُضْنَ مِنْ أَبْصَارِهِنَّ وَيَحْفَظْنَ فُرُوجَهُنَّ وَلَا يُبْدِينَ زِينَتَهُنَّ إِلَّا مَا ظَهَرَ مِنْهَا وَلْيَضْرِبْنَ بِخُمُرِهِنَّ عَلَىٰ جُيُوبِهِنَّ وَلَا يُبْدِينَ زِينَتَهُنَّ إِلَّا لِبُعُولَتِهِنَّ أَوْ آبَائِهِنَّ أَوْ آبَاءِ بُعُولَتِهِنَّ أَوْ أَبْنَائِهِنَّ أَوْ أَبْنَاءِ بُعُولَتِهِنَّ أَوْ إِخْوَانِهِنَّ أَوْ بَنِي إِخْوَانِهِنَّ أَوْ بَنِي أَخَوَاتِهِنَّ أَوْ نِسَائِهِنَّ أَوْ مَا مَلَكَتْ أَيْمَانُهُنَّ أَوِ التَّابِعِينَ غَيْرِ أُولِي الْإِرْبَةِ مِنَ الرِّجَالِ أَوِ الطِّفْلِ الَّذِينَ لَمْ يَظْهَرُوا عَلَىٰ عَوْرَاتِ النِّسَاءِ وَلَا يَضْرِبْنَ بِأَرْجُلِهِنَّ لِيُعْلَمَ مَا يُخْفِينَ مِن زِينَتِهِنَّ وَتُوبُوا إِلَى اللَّهِ جَمِيعًا أَيُّهَ الْمُؤْمِنُونَ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُفْلِحُونَ

And say to the believing women that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty; that they should not display their beauty and ornaments except what (must ordinarily) appear thereof; that they should draw their veils over their bosoms and not display their beauty except to their husbands, their fathers, their husband’s fathers, their sons, their husbands’ sons, their brothers or their brothers’ sons, or their sisters’ sons, or their women, or the slaves whom their right hands possess, or male servants free of physical needs, or small children who have no sense of the shame of sex; and that they should not strike their feet in order to draw attention to their hidden ornaments. And O ye Believers! turn ye all together towards Allah, that ye may attain Bliss.

(24:31)


Yes both Amiah and Saaima are veiled girls, yet they achieved heights Alhamdulilah.

Educated and working ladies they are living the rightfully life while being just same as non veiled girls.

Disclaimer notice: We ain’t perfect in any way. Yet we are striving our way through the worldly life.

I am sure many among you, many must have heard of that sentence ‘University is not for Hijabi people’ ‘University is not a place for girls’ and all that stuffs. It is of common knowledge that Mauritians are still conservative about some aspects of life and university being one, but that does not mean that everyone of you is just the same.

It is true that it is told in the Holy Quran that the best place for women is her house. Saaima has been to the university while being a veiled girl, respecting her way around, she proved that if you know your way around and trust yourself then you can step into the university life. It is also true that a woman can work as far as it does not break any Shariah rule, being in her limit.674daa963119371feeeeaf8038ee0206.jpg


I somehow don’t understand the logic of those who say that women should not work yet in some occupation they would want a woman to do the work.

I got a clear cut example for you people:

‘If girls ain’t allow education which mean ain’t allow to study further for example to be a doctor, and you are one who insist to be seen by a female doctor, well am sorry for you, girls ain’t allow education thus could not be doctors obviously, so deal with the male doctor itself.’

Sisters out there, strive your way out and get the education you require, you want. However kindly know your limits and stay within. With duas and staying focus, surely you’ll make it.

Amiah is a veiled lady and she is educated as well, unlike Saaima, she opted for an online course for her study field was not available in Mauritius. This again proves if you want to do something you’ll make it.

Working is totally halal as far as you remain in the limit, you don’t attract the attention of men. If you are a married person, then you must look after your husband and the need and wants of your children. The job in itself must not become a priority over the husband and children.

Hijabi yet working completely as anybody else. Wearing our hijab we go to work, wearing our hijab we work, wearing our hijab we return from work.

Hijab has at no point in life been a problem to us. Yes people will be back biting. Yes people will be judging. Yes people will be giving you names. Yes people will be saying unpleasant stuffs to you or about you.

Even I faced some problems related to my hijab, I was the first one in my class to wear and my friends thought that I was wearing it because of family pressure. They thought that my father was being a strict father. I had a hard time trying to clear all these misconceptions. I was the one that wanted to wear it and wear it with pride, I did!

Hijab has no age. When you feel that at this point of your life, you’ll wear hijab and cover properly your body parts, you are ready and you’ll wear it correctly your whole life, then you can wear it. However, you must not mind these people.

To come back to the above ayat, I wish to clear another misconception:
“…they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty; that they should not display their beauty and ornaments except what (must ordinarily) appear thereof; that they should draw their veils over their bosoms and not display their beauty…”

It is clearly mentioned that women must

  1. “guard their gaze”. This means that one must not check out men while walking or stare at some decent persons.
  2. “draw their veils over their bosoms”literally means that you must cover your chest. Today hijab has become more of a fashion than an asset to attain perfection in Deen. While wearing the veil, you must abide to some norms. You can’t go around simply covering your ponytail and you say you are covering your head. Likewise, you can’t wear tight leggings and blouse at the same time wearing the scarf. Another common type of hijab wearing is that you cover your head while your neck is full on display. Surely you are making a fool out of the Hijab, the commandment of the Quran and Allah.
  3. “not display their beauty and ornaments” means that to be chaste and modest you don’t have to let everyone know how beautiful you are. If your mahram acknowledges of your beauty, the world does not have to get to know of it.
