    Hi. Forgive me if I’m totally wrong, but I’m a bit confused:

    If you’re a follower of Allah, it’s in many cultures considered to be your duty as a woman to wear a hijab. The hijab’s purpose is to cover up the woman (the word hijab means cover, veil). If you just the Qur’an by the letter, then it’s fine to make hijab look good or even sexy (a red hijab in a smooth fabric framing in a pretty face with dark eyeliner looks really good), but doesn’t it destroy the whole purpose of the message of the Qur’an? Following the Qur’an and the hadiths by the letter doesn’t make anyone good muslims. Only interpreting the words of Allah and living by the intended message from him is the right way.

    By the way, I’m an unbeliever, a so-called infidel, and even I see this hypocrisy.

    Hi there!

    There is a text that reads that Allah is beautiful and loves beauty. There is nothing wrong with wearing colors. You are right when you ask if the purpose is to cover up – We should dress modestly, not with tight fitting or see-through clothes. The hijab shouldn’t be sexy, but there are no such things that say that one can’t make the hijab look “good”(ofcourse it depends on what you put in the word “good”).

    We follow the words of God the best way we can, wearing the hijab (or not wearing it) is not what makes you a good Muslim (or a bad one).

    By the way, I don’t see you as an “infidel”, many of my friends are non-Muslims.

    I guess we agree then, I’ve seen girls with tight clothes and hijab here in Oslo, and thought it was a bit weird ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. basbousa says:

    Jhonny; We agree on that one. Still, I’m not the one to judge those girls, they might have good intentions in their hearts.

    this is one hijab “how to do” that i actually got ! i found this one easy! i liked it althou the vid dint play for me, it says the vid is no longer available. i dunno if i wud try it but i found it cute. ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. basbousa says:

    Habayeb, I’m glad that you got it right. I just don’t understand why the video won’t work for you?!?!

  7. Looking “good” or “pretty” doesn’t always mean “sexy” but sadly, “sexy” has become such the norm these days that being pretty or looking good kinda gets wrapped up in the whole “looking sexy” thing.

    What is Moroccan abaya???? I’m intriqued!

    Today it was cool enough that I wore my long light-green velvet dress (kinda like a jilbab in a way?) over light-brown pants and a light lavendar head scarf ~ though I didn’t get it pinned right and it looked a bit sloppy. But I was so happy to finally be able to wear one of my new scarves without fainting!!

    Today I got my two “Kuwaiti Twist” hijabs which is basically the “Amira Hijab” underscarf with a long rectangular hijab attatched to it and you wrap it about and it’s very lovely ~ they are fantastic but one of them is a really too tight around the throat. I might take the scarf off and sew it onto another Amira Hijab underscarf that isn’t too tight… This is a lovely style though and I like it! *Grin*

    In Bosnia, today it was sooooooo terribly hot, I think around 40 degrees…using more than one hijab –
    mercy please….. ๐Ÿ™‚

    There’s only one thing I wonder about. In a lot of other countries they’ve banned hijab. Why do we see an increase of that in Norway?

  10. Salaam!
    OH MY GOSH! thanks soooo much for posting that!! I have been looking EVERYWHERE for how to wrap a hijab with all the layers and such! This just made my day! .. no, my month!

    ps. that girl in the vid is sooo cute! I love the way she wrapped it – you can count on me to spend like another hour infront of the mirror trying to put this hijab style on – but this time, i may actually get somewhere ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I love it ya ukiti. Keep it up, insha’Allah.

  12. Jana says:

    Yeah I posted this style a while ago, but haven’t actually got round to doing it myself! I prefer to wear an al-amirah, and then drape a chiffon shayla around loosely, and use just a straight pin at the top. Kind of like a make shift Kuwaiti, but looks better – I hate having the shayla conneted to the neck!

  13. basbousa says:

    Jana, sorry, didn’t know that ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
    Anyway, I do the style about the same way as you ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. Jana says:

    Nooo I didn’t mean it like that lol. Just that there are so many styles, after I try them out for the first time, I never seem to come back to them. I usually stick to a couple that I do allll the time… time for a change me thinks!

  15. Hey there! Wow, you posted another video of mine again :D. That is awesome hehe. And by the way, I looked it up at and the fatwa for hijab is that it’s perfectly okay to wear hijab in colors or artistically, just so that it does not appear “unusually” attractive and is within the boundaries the hijab itself.

    :). I’m so glad everyone liked my video!! ๐Ÿ˜€ ENJOY ^_^

  16. basbousa says:

    Madiha, I did post one more video. Keep it coming girl! Love your work!

  17. Thank you :). oo Can the other girls give me links to their blogs, I’d love to see them as well :).

  18. basbousa says:

    Hey Madiha. You can find links to many other blogs on the right side of my blog, and you can click the names on some of the comments ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. Thanks! :). I posted other videos besides the hoodie and spanish wrap ones. My lastest one is an elegant princess wrap :). Just click my name! :).

    hi, i’m new wearing hijab, is there any simpler way to wear hijab?
    in my country there are ready to wear hijab…..very easy , sweat absorb. Like wearing a t-shirt. But i like to try new style….

  21. D Alhaj-Abed says:

    Salam all, this style is my personal favorite. It really works well on all types of face shapes and it’s slimming too. Make sure not to show your neck

  22. jihane says:

    kl kl kl kl kl lol im jihane and u do have other hejabs please?

  23. ZahMuslimah says:

    I really like the video you posted. I have been so trying to find new ways to wear hijab. I see nothing wrong with making it pretty as long as it’s modest. Go head girl!

  24. samiya says:

    i think it is ok to wear pretty hijab styles as long as it isnt too eye catching because that would demean the whole point of it but one bow or flower or a pattern or sometthing that isnt too extravagent is okay in my opinion but ofcourse allah knows best

  25. Missmujahida says:

    I just wanted 2 say that it is true you shouldnt make ur hijab tht attactive outside but different styles are allowed in islam but it depends what you do with them e.g. wear that specific style at a wedding or a special occasion..:)

  26. Salwa says:

    yeah allah loves beuty but not to the western kuffar standards, which means put on slap, bat your eye lids, wear bright colours. its forbidden to attract men and attention. so yeah i agree with the first person, soem people make a joek of the hijab, when we knwo the practice of teh prophet the best muslim who ever existed so who are these girls to say he was wrong?? astagfirallah. they mock teh sunnah and the quran. astagfirallah. isnahllah allah will guide them to true islam. islam of teh soul and heart not of the body, not if your hijab looks “hot” this is shallow and not islamic in any shape way or form, of course im not saying they are not muslim they just dont knwo what islam is, theya re sort fo lost still.

    anyway, this is posion to new hijabies to see, and for young girls to watch. i wouldnt let my daughter wear hijab like this, she wear it proerly or not at all. becuase if you wear it the way you are with make up and fashion in mond then you dont get any reward and what is teh point of wearing it then??? hmm soemthign for the confused sisters to think about. just here to open peoples eyes to what hijab is. revist the hadiths about the women of islam in the time of the prophet SAW. they wore black, they wore clothing that covered them… they were described as a group of black crows as they wore black all over that covered everything even face.
    practice islam dont practice fashion sisters!
