Yes, even more hijab tie styles..

So I’m pretty sure this will be the last post featuring hijab tie styles from Marwa Hamed’s book. If you don’t want to learn some very strange looking stuff, that is πŸ™‚ Here are four more, and as before, you need to click the thumbnails for a better view.

That’s it from Marwa Hamed’s hijab style guide. Tell me which one you like the most??

    The real art in this style os to keep the 2-3 scarves in place intact and looking good all the time one is wearing them!
    The styles looks great. I would wear them to a festive occasion or to a girls’ night out.

    I might actually try one of these for our all-women-parties in an organisation I work for, related to making Norwegian and refugee-women meet… Somnetimes we have parties, but I dont feel comfortable without hijab, because there are non-muslims there, but these might work great with my somali outfits,actually. Or some turkish turban-style.

  3. For novices like me who have at least six thumbs per hand, this book is kinda difficult ~ the lady always skips out on the first step!

    I discovered that there are TWO kinds of hijab scarves, the squares and the rectangles. Doh!! Thankfully I had already ordered “shayla” styile rectangle hijabs and the first ones arrived yesterday. They work really well for a simple wrap-and-flip around my head and neck!! The square hijabs are a bit more of a challenge. (For now…)

    I’ve been trying to organize my scarves today ~ not an easy task as they *all* like to fly off of the bars of my multi-hangers when I remove one scarf hahahaha! So I’m using clothes pins to keep them on the hangers. I live in an old house without closets… where will I hang the hangers??? Oh boy… it’s beginning to look like a festive bazaar upstairs!

    Re: Clothes organization – I’ve discovered that’s it’s pretty much pointless to try to organize or hang our clothes. The cats pull stuff down from the hangers and sleep on them. Seriously. One of them has an absolute fetish for my shoes, to the point that I have to keep my black velveteen interview pumps in the box and on the top shelf to keep her from sleeping on them. We have strange cats…

    As far as keeping scarves organized… Hmm… Everything I can think of puts undue stress on the fabric. Surely someone has a gadget for this?

  6. Kathleen says:

    And those styles look way too complicated. I’d end up losing scarves or tying my hair into knots along with the hijab.

    Re: Organizing scarves: I’ve just started doing something a local import store where I often find scarves does. She uses plain plastic shower curtain rings over some sort of bar (you can find something if you go to an organizing/closet store, or even just put the rings around the straight cross bar of a wooden or plastic hanger). Just thread the scarves through the ring and voila, as they say. I happened to have an old kimono rack so now mine are all reasonably tidy in a spare room. Best solution I’ve found so far but I’d love to hear others– I am so not a “fold neatly at the end of the day” girl!

  8. Wow!! That shower-rings-on-hanger idea is a fantastic one! Hmmmmsie…

    I’ve found a solution for the “layered look” that works for me without making me overheat: underscarves! I can easily wear two of them layered one on the other and then I pin the scarf further back ~ it looksl ike I’m wearing two or three scarves when in fact I’m cheating hehehe! I leave my fringe out most of the time just in case I end up doing something un-Islamic. I don’t want to accidentally make Muslims look bad. I’m going for hijab but at the same time I don’t want to have people saying, “What’s that Muslim doing?!?!?!” I’ll probably wear a prominent cross necklace to help folk identify me as Christian because we eat pork and walk a dog and, well you know ~ we engage in several non-Muslim things that could give the wrong idea. Also, with Ramadan coming I’ll be eating and drinking during the day which could give a very bad impression as well!

    Last night I tried a glittery dark pink underscarf + regular soft pink beaded scarf with fringe out and my husband really liked it! He said, “You do look almost Muslim though…” I said, “Husband, no matter *what* style of headscarf I wear, I’ll always ‘look Muslim’ because sadly women in the West have stopped wearing the scarf and the Muslim women are about the only ladies with scarves. People are just going to have to deal with it!!” Seriously, I’m determined to embrace hijab (in its fullest sense!) regardless of which tongues wag. Now I see that even modesty can be beautiful and feminine rather then dowdy and frumpy!!

    i have always been fascinated by non-muslim women who veil. Ofcourse not the sickos out there, who has fetishes and such, but religious women who wears similar to the hijab out of conviction. I meet several catholics, jewish women or women from protestant denominations who covers because of the Bible. I find it interesting, in a world that “gives it all away” like some singer say in a Nasheed (religious songs in islam). I found many covering nonmuslims on ‘s forum.

  10. Oh wow… I’m totally dominating this blog with my comments!! I hope all of you can find it in your hearts to see I’m just flooding with joy and enthusiasm! For years all I could find were very severe hijabs… or head coverings that were far too “Amish” for me. And now it’s like God opened a huge door on so much color and beauty that is also MODEST. I am so happy because I know God wants me to be modest but I hated being so frumpy and dumpy. It really bugged me because dressing sloppy in baggy men’s clothes etc is so un-womanly.

    Muha, it’s sad that Muslim women are about the only women (except old women in like Eastern Europe…) who wear scarves in the West ~ because veiling is a universal dignity for all women! *Grin* It’s double-sad that now veils are looked at as “religious extremism” and thus a terrorist threat but I have so much confidence that with all of this modest , colourful, fun hijabi fashion coming out of Asia and the Middle East there will be many eyes that are opened.

    The hijabs, underscarves, and glittery hijab pins that I’ve ordered are starting to flood in to the house!!!! I just received a heavy sack a moment ago that contained my order from 2Hijab ~ the hijabs are colorful and fun and the pins are to die for!

    I also received in this order the most recent Egyptian Hijab Fashion magazine AND the best find of all: the entire 2007 collection of this magazine bound up in one hefty 240 page magazine!!!!! A treasure trove of inspiration! This Hijab Fashion magazine is good quality stuff ~ made with thick paper, heavy covers, and beautiful full-color photos. I highly recommend it to everyone!!!!!

    Basbousa, I hope you never stop posting on this blog!! While you inspire women to embrace hijab I’m going to join you and take up the torch and do my best as well. Even if women don’t rush out and buy hijab scarves and kaftans, maybe they’ll see that modesty does not have to be ugly!!

    Here’s to hijab! *Grin* May God be praised!

    CC, We enjoy your comments πŸ™‚ And I’m so happy that you managed to find a lot of veils and accessories you like. Congratulations with the newest purchases πŸ™‚

    Shower rings? BRILLIANT! I was thinking along the same lines, but with those screws with a hook on the ends things, in a board. But AFAIK, they don’t make a complete ring, and the ends would catch fabric. You can tell that I’m not exactly a feminine kinda girl – present me with a problem, and I go to the hardware store to fix it!

    β€œO you Children of Adam! We have bestowed on you raiment to cover your shame as well as to be an adornment to you. But the raiment of righteousness, that is the best. Such are among the Signs of Allah, that they may receive admonition.” (Quran 7:26)

    β€œAnd 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 therof; that they should draw their veils over their bosoms and not display their beauty except to their husbands, their fathers, their husbands’ fathers, their sons, their husbands’ sons, their brothers, or their brothers’ sons or their sisters’ sons, or their women or the servants 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 you Believers, turn you all together towards Allah, that you may attain Bliss.” (Quran 24:31).

    β€œO Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to draw their cloaks close round them (when they go abroad). That will be better, so that they may be recognised and not annoyed. Allah is ever Forgiving, Merciful.” (Quran 33:59)
