This is SO Disturbing...

Salaam alaikum wa rahmat Allah wa barakatuh everyone, insh'Allah you're all well and are in the best of health and the highest of iman!

So, before I continue, I'd like y'all to watch this short little video:

Okay, now did that give anyone else the creeps? I just want to say that personally, I don't wear flower clips or anything extra under my scarf, but I do tie my hair in a bun at the back of my head, and it does create a noticeable bump ('cause, well, I have a lot of hair, and that's the only way I find comfortable to wear my hair under my scarf...I can't stand feeling things on the back of my neck...I've had people tell me to braid my hair and tuck it into to back of my abaya...ickkkkk I would not be able to stand, bun it is for me). I also want to state that I've read evidences from both sides both saying that the flower clips or adding extra is haram/not haram...and quite honestly, I'm still not sure where I stand with the issue...but I do know that personally, I'm not comfortable wearing them (but, honestly, I don't have beef with sisters who do so modestly...modestly being the key word here).

Now, with that disclaimer over, I do not find anything modest about this style whatsoever. In fact, I find it really disturbing, because at the end her head ends up looking 5 times bigger than it was before. Do people really walk around like this? Alhamdolillah I've never seen this in real life, neither in the U.S. nor Morocco...and I kinda hope I never do. To top it all's a MAN styling her scarf (what's up with that?). Does anyone else find this wrong on so many levels?


  1. That looks really weird. Plus it just looks like a log or something, not round like it's supposed to be lol & It is pretty large :p

  2. @Amal: Yeah, I think you hit the nail on the head there when you said it looks like a log, lol. I actually watched one of the related videos where they do another style with a flower clip, and it looks more normal. I sincerely hope that this "log" of fabric being stuffed under one's scarf will not become a trend.

  3. They're speaking Lebanese which means they're most likely Shia & I believe they don't have adding that extra in the Hijab as Haraam. it also says how to wear Hijab for a party not everyday, but yeah despite it being haraam or not it looks wacky. :/

  4. @Zainab: Jazak Allah khair sis for clarifying...I'm glad that this style would be reserved for parties and not just walking to the grocery store lol. However, it doesn't really make it any less disturbing to me...Allah did not make people's heads that big for a reason lol XD
