Thu, 16 Oct 2008 19:56:26 +0100 that\'s good. sayuri Fri, 31 Oct 2008 10:10:10 +0100 ? I am a Muslim woman and I converted after being raised in the Episcopal church. I\'m not sure where you are getting this idea that there is no such thing as \"Muslim\" fashion. Women who wear the hijab want to be as fashionable as the next woman! You seem to contradict yourself many times. You say Muslim women are not supposed to wear ornamental clothes; this is simply not true. Even the most modest of Muslim women likes to wear clothes with colorful beads and embroidery. And you say that we are supposed to look drab and not call attention but then point out the variety of hijab fabrics and prints? I don\'t know where you got your information from but you should do more research. anne Sun, 02 Nov 2008 00:32:26 +0100 Morden Clothing! [size=medium][/size][color=navy][/color] I just converted to islam, yet I was unaware of the clothes(what I mean I didn\'t know about the Fashionable Hijabs,and many more) Since this transformer I have realized by going to the masjid that muslim siter\'s have there own style.Also, in most country you will see sister\'s wearing \'Jibab\' or \'Niqab\'. Furthermore, you have clothing for and women,and children. Just not any clothing but Mordern Islamic Clothing.Next to that, you have all these fashionable clothes ( Hijabs, Hijabs Pins).Even through, I wear the Fashionable Hijabs and Pins however I do dress modersty but it not islamic clothing Lisa C Mon, 10 Nov 2008 10:40:40 +0100 Muslim Women Fashions I basically agree with the article. I converted to Islam about 20 years ago after being raised Baptist and then coverting to the Catholic religion before I found Islam. For Muslim women who practice their religion and believe they need to follow the directives for how they should dress the need not to show their shape is imperitive. However we also have to consider that many women in the U.S. have to work because they are single, their family did not accept their conversion and will not help, or due to the cost of living they have to work. Not all women work but many have to. So covering one\'s face may not be an option. This however doesn\'t mean that one has to dress as a dowager. If you look at the countries where Muslims make up the majority you will see they dress in accordance to their culture. So many American Muslims wear sheath type clothing (dresses without a skirt attached or defined waistline) that meets the guidelines of no shape or skirts/pants with long straight tops that hides their shape. This doesn\'t mean the clothing is unattactive for I have had women at work tell me they wished they could dress as I do. However, as the articles states we should not wear perfumes or articles of clothing that will draw sexual attention to us. Just dressing differently will bring attention to one\'s self, so in the western society it is impossible to follow the guidelines of Islam and not be noticed. If we want to wear something that is form fitting, it is worn in the house for our husbands. Then if you need to run to the store and don\'t want to change clothes a cover is put over the top and one does what is needed outside the home. I do have some concerns when i see clothing that is suppose to be for Muslim women that has rhinestones and is flashy for it does not meet the guidelines of your religion unless she is going to cover the garment when she leaves her home and then takes the cover off while at a party that just has other Muslim women and small children attending. Overall I think this was a good article. Eman Tue, 09 Dec 2008 11:54:23 +0100 I\'m doing a research & i need kinda more information about what Islam clothing . -leslie(; Wed, 11 Feb 2009 16:45:04 +0100 There is no compulsion in religion. Fashion in Islam is not prohibited as long as its not flashy or showy. Simplicity and Chic designs are fine. Unline the Amish we can wear all colours and designs as long as they are modest and do not show the figure (not skin tight). Hope this helps. Sanam Wed, 16 Sep 2009 01:53:14 +0100
