October is the month of breast cancer awareness, and with that in mind, I want you all to consider wearing a pink hijab this October 29th in solidarity and support of the women batteling this horrible cancer.

The Pink hijab day initiative started in North America,  but this year we can make it an international event. Breast cancer is an issue that can affect all of us, so lets fight it. No matter where in the world you are, put your pink scarf on October the 29th.

  22. Think Pink Bahrain in association with the PWA organsied 300 female students at the Pakistan School in Bahrain, to form the shape of the ribbon whilst wearing pink head scarf’s. This was the highlight of our 2008 campaign, and was in line with Global Pink Hijab Day on the 29th of October.

    • Nasima says:

      In South Africa, I initiated a campaign via the organisation I work with to sponsor over 4000 pink Hijabs to schools and clients. This intiative was very successfull and well received by the media and public. I further went to sponsor a High tea, with a local cancer association and again we sponsored pink hijaabs, the response was so great that we had many organisations requesting us to sponsor hijabs on the day. I would like to work with individuals in other countries this year in the same regard so we can share ideas. Please contact me. Salaams to All of you.

  29. Ahmed says:

    Asalamuwa alaykum. May Allaah make it easy for those with any form of cancer and cure them, aameen.

    Before we jupm up and think something is a good idea to do, we musy first see if is something that will be pleasin to Allaah and in line with the sunnah of His final Messenger salalaho alayhiwasalam. I would be interested in a qs being ask to the orthodox sunni scholars who are known to refer to the understanding of the first / early muslims. The qs shud be on thie issue of cancer and using this method to increase awareness amongst women and others.

    Women in Islam are permitted to where different colours but this shouldnt be to attract attention. Tabaruj is something the classical scholars warned against and is mentioned in The Quran.

    If i understand correctly, yhe aim of this campain is to attract additional attention thru the pink colour, appart from showing you are a believing woman. I believe this wud be incorrect but Allaah knows best. Allaah says in The Quran “As the people of rememberence if u dnt know…” So we shud ask before acting. In Islam knowledge proceeds action. For example, we dnt gues how to pray salaht then pray it in our own method because we think worship is a good idea, and then after wards seek how it is to be performed within the islamic guidlines. similarly, we shud find our if this pink hijaab day is permitted.

    Please reflect on this. please take care.. asalamuwa alaykum
