I was reading one of my fave blogs, it was about her intention to cover her head and she's facing a dilemma in committing her intention.
My opinions here would be a little too strong for certain people, but it is really bothering me not to voice it out. Sorry.
Why do I cover my head at first place?
I remember my first time covering my head was after I've reached puberty and I felt that I have no choice because I believe God is always there for us, watching us. I believe it is sinful not to cover our head.
In the present time, I'm still wearing hijab (However, my hijab has gotten shorter as time goes by, ;D) and I'm not planning to take it off any time in the future. InsyaAllah.
When talking about covering our head, it is related to the activities that we do daily. Which means here, what we wear influences what we do.
I know wearing hijab can be very deceiving which these people might have more serious social problems, but think of this way, those people at least they have escaped from the sins of showing their hairs to others. What say you about this?
I'm so sick of people mocking upon this matter. And for the worse, using this matter as the excuse for not covering up. Each piece of hair is counted here. What do you say about this?
I have seen a lot people who have changed from wearing hijab to uncover their heads and become more daring than anyone else. I bet there's something inside them from long time, that has been begging to be unlocked. And once "the inside" has been unlocked, it went out of control. And the only key to unlock "the inside" is by uncovering their head.
I'm saying this because once they "unlock the inside", they can dress up and act wildly, they are the next good girls gone bad which is something that they are proud of apparently.
For those who are considering to cover up, please don't look upon those people who has unlocked the inside. Look upon the good things of covering up, your sincere intention. And the only intention which is acceptable is because of Him.
God has given us lives and beauty (the girls), so we need to show some appreciation towards Him.
Covering up is not option, it's our obligation as women. No matter how hard it is, consider it as a sacrifice towards Him.
This is what I've been holding onto for all this while. Or else, I would have gone bad too! I love to dress up and become wild but I put everything aside because I know I'm not that weak and I won't give this kind of vanity a chance.
There are a lot of matters that I'm facing as I'd stumble a lot of times and I regret each time and still struggling right now. I really want to become a good Muslim and bring the name to world for others to admire.
I want to become a better Muslim each and every day. I really do. I'm talking here now as a very weak human being as I always got carried away with this modern life. However, this can't be the reason because everything starts with ourselves, bad things won't happen if we didn't start it.
I'm sorry if this sounds too provocative and please don't get me wrong as if I sound like I'm saying that I'm good because I'm wearing hijab. I'm not, I'm far away from good, and this is something that is bothering my mind when it comes to covering up, and I would like to share it with others. A little too harsh I know, but truth will always hurt. That's life, isn't it?
What I've learned back at school in my PAI subject was that, we should have always the feeling of fear towards God, because that's the only way for us to avoid doing the bad things. And I'm trying my best to hold tightly to it and I admit IT IS NOT EASY.
However, for those who are considering to cover up, consider this line, "the road to hell is paved with good intentions".
These intentions alone are not enough. Work towards it and always doa because that's our powerful weapon. InsyaAllah.
For some people, they are fine with doing other good deeds accept for covering their heads, and would put so many considerations to cover up.
Well, we'll never know when will God take our lives. I hope that helps.
And we all have to remember, heaven ain't cheap.
Well, if only you're planning to go there one day. Like me.
