I got a new niqab today and managed to cheer up enough to put it on with some make up ❤️
A nonbinary Arab person wears a black full niqab and khimar with pink trim. The left photo is a close up, showing the head and shoulders, while the right is a full body shot. On the left you can tell they are wearing cat eye eyeliner.
On the right the khimar almost reaches the bottom of their abaya, which is rose with a section of beige at the bottom. In this photo they are standing in front of a pond with lot of small palm trees nearby, and a lawn chair.]
Considering to wear a khimar* full-time (or at least 75% percent of the time in sha Allah). Any lovely sisters got some advice on how to start, dealing with criticism,being in a non-Islamic country etc.? Just hearing from you guys is a motivation! Feel free to message me 💕
*with khimar I mean a big sort of headcoverage from head to waist/knee with a abaya or long skirt underneath it.
Niqabis? I give them so much respect. They go through so much for Allah swt. We need to be strong enough to achieve it. They give up the freedom of letting the breeze hit their face in extreme heat. They give a different message, that you don’t have to show your face to interact. Your face is just skin, it doesn’t expose your occupation, or your level of education, or your wealth, and so on. They send the message that you don’t have to see someone’s face to love them, you don’t have to see their face to respect them…
