khimar

2

I got a new niqab today and managed to cheer up enough to put it on with some make up ❤️

[image description:

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.]

If a #Muslim goes out of his house and says:

بِسْمِ اللهِ، تَوَكَّلْتُ عَلَى اللهِ، وَلَا حَوْلَ وَلَا قُوَّةَ إِلَّا بِاللهِ

❝Bismillah, tawakkaltu ‘ala Allaah, wa laa hawla wa laa quwwata illa Billaah.❞

❝In the name of Allah, I put my trust in Allah, and there is no power and no strength except with Allah.❞

It is said to him: ❝You are #guided, taken care of and #protected.❞

So the devil keeps away from him so much so that another devil says:

❝What can you do against a man who is guided, taken care of and protected?❞

[Abu Dawood 5095; #Tirmidhi 3426]

Khimar question

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…

Menurut saya, tidak ada beda antara sebutan/panggilan ‘cewek’ dan ‘akhwat’.
— 

Selama ini orang-orang mendeskripsikan ‘akhwat’ sebagai muslimah yang berkhimar lebar, ‘wow’ luar-dalam, dan sudah ngaji di sana-sini.

Padahal bisa jadi banyak sekali perempuan yang tidak berkhimar lebar, namun amalan-amalan mereka sangat mempesona dan kedalaman ilmu syari'at mereka membuat kita iri.

Saya rasa, setiap perempuan yang beragama Islam berhak dipanggil akhwat.

Jika orang-orang memanggil atau menyebut saya sebagai ‘akhwat’ hanya karena khimar saya yang lebar, maaf. Maaf, saya hanya perempuan biasa, yang tidak ingin dibebani oleh ekspektasi.

Bismillah…

Banyak selogan yang katakan
“Bangga sebagai Muslim”
“Bangga Berhijab”
“Bangga Berniqob”

Intinya “Bangga”, sekedar mengingatkan saudariku bahwa segala ketaqwaan kita sungguh atas Kehendak Allah. Tiada daya dan upaya kita tanpa izin Allah.

Mungkin lupa, maka aku kutipkan ayat yang indah ini:
“Dan Allah tidak menyukai setiap orang yang sombong lagi membanggakan diri.”
(QS. Al Hadid: 23)

Wallahua'lam
