If I wear a Hijab with Western clothing that is fashionable is that wrong?
by Shaykh Salim Ghiza
Wearing Hijab is an obligation in Islam. The purpose of the Hijab is to show modesty. The same principle applies to all the clothing and therefore any clothing which would either reveal the body or is tight whereby the curves of the figure would be displayed then this would not be allowed, whether the clothing is Western or Eastern. If the clothing does not contravene the Shariah then it is allowed. For example, many girls wear the Hijab but then wear tight jeans whereby the shape of their posterior, hips and thighs is clearly visible - this would not be allowed.
However, if a sister wore jeans but then had a long top on or a Jilbab covering the curves of her body then this would be perfectly acceptable.
Ofcourse, Allah (swt) knows best
