I found this article on daily news Egypt about an allerged trend; that more and more egyptian women struggle with wearing their hijabs, and eventually end up removing it. Read more here.
Personally I feel like more and more girls and women of Egypt is putting on the hijab, but I could be wrong. Or maybe this is just a side effect of people putting on the hijab in large numbers because of the society, without being convinced about the importancy of the veil, and then end up denouncing it after some years, as something that doesn’t feel right.
I don’t have a problem with sisters not wearing hijab, they can be much better people than your average hijabi or niqabi sister. It’s just sad to see some sisters take it off because they are not convinced, and because they feel the double standards of the society. I believe that veiling for the sake of Allah (or even just wear really modest clothes), can help us on our way to become better, stronger muslims, but it doesn’t help at all if you don’t strive to work with the inside – who you are.
What’s your take?
