I noticed in your profile picture you are wearing a hijab (ma sha allah) however I also noticed that your arms were showing! Just passing on knowledge from sister to sister but us girls must cover up our bodies to keep our modesty intact :)
Wallah, you don’t even follow me.
Having my arms covered in a photo doesn’t make me modest, and it definitely doesn’t define my faith nor my strength as a woman.
There are women who wear hijab and make pornos. There are women who wear hijab and drink alcohol.
Yet you come to me, and tell me to be modest, because I show my arms, in a picture that is literally 80x80 pixels? You must have been staring at that picture mighty hard.
Modesty and wearing hijab isn’t all about the headscarf, dear, and I pray to Allah swt that you don’t believe that it is.
You can modest in your dress but filthy in your mind, actions, and soul.
And dear, I most certainly am not filthy.
The hijab is not the most important part of being a Muslim woman, but it is certainly the most visible. In a time when Islamophobia only seems to be on the rise in the West, a practice that is so personal and diverse has become a warped and misunderstood part of a flat and monolithic picture of Muslim women.
