When does a woman take off her hijab?
When Muslim women become very old, Allah removes the need for hijab from them.
That is – they reach an age when no one is interested in marrying them.
In the Holy Quran, Allah Ta’ala says,
وَالْقَواعِدُ مِنَ النِّسَاءِ اللَّاتِي لاَ يَرْجُونَ نِكَاحًا فَلَيْسَ عَلَيْهِنَّ جُنَاحٌ ََنْ يَضَعْنَ ثِيَابَهُنَّ غَيْرَ مُتَبٍرِ
And old women who have no interest in getting married. There is no sin if they take off their clothes (hijab) without showing beauty. (Surat An-Noor – 60)
The meaning of this verse is –
When Muslim women get older and have no interest in marrying them because they are too old and do not have the physical strength, and they are not interested in getting married, they have no difficulty in taking off their clothes.
Hijab is meant by cloth. That means they will be able to keep their faces and hands open. Because no one is interested in marrying such women.
But the condition is – they can not show beauty by wearing beautiful clothes. Facial beauty will not be able to take any action. For example – using antimony in the eyes.
Is it haram to take off your hijab?
It is obligatory for a Muslim woman to wear the hijab when going out. It is haraam to leave the house without hijab from adulthood to old age.
So the girl who takes off her hijab will definitely be involved in haram. You will have to answer it in the hereafter.
However, it is not obligatory to wear the hijab before reaching adulthood. A girl will be considered an adult as soon as her first period begins.
Similarly, when a woman grows old, she can take off her hijab. It has been discussed above.
In front of whom is it legal to wear hijab?
It is lawful to wear a hijab in front of one’s mahram man. Below is the list of mahram men.
There are 14 mahrams for women
4 people like father
5 people like brother
- Your grandfather
- Own grandparents
- Own grandson
5 like a boy
- Brother’s son
- Sister’s son
In front of them, the mahram woman will be able to express her face and the wrists of both hands. It is not forbidden for them to disclose it.
The story of a girl wearing a hijab
I’m Sarah. Age twenty years. I was born in the Arabian Gulf. I believed that the hijab was not important in the Muslim lifestyle.
My mother wore hijab herself but she never forced me to wear hijab. He thought the work should be done voluntarily.
Otherwise, I will stop wearing the hijab as soon as he is out of his care. I think the argument is somewhat correct.
I went to America for higher education after completing my secondary education. One thing I noticed there was an extraordinary Muslim community.
I saw that they were practicing Islam in a completely different way than the way I was used to.
We didn’t have to worry about our faith in the Arabian Gulf and how to believe in God.
So I had no idea what it was like to live in a mixed society with people of different religions.
I realized that the people of the Gulf did not practice pure religion. What he did was a mixture of religion and culture.
There are many things I realized – what I thought was Islam. In fact, they are social culture or cultural beliefs and they are in most cases extremely wrong.
I learned that pure Islam is not what I grew up with, it was full of nonsense. The set has long been part of our culture. The only source of teaching in pure Islam is the Qur’an and the Sunnah.
People in America used to ask me various questions about Islam. Most of the time I couldn’t answer their questions.
As a result, I started browsing various Islamic books and the internet – hoping to learn pure Islam.
My condition was like that of a person who has never heard of Islam before. I learned a lot that I didn’t know before.
The story of a girl wearing a hijab – When does a woman take off her hijab?
I started going to the mosque. There I started talking and discussing Islamic issues with many brothers and sisters.
All the sisters in the mosque except me wore hijabs. Everyone except me was American. They were very generous with me. That’s why I respect them so much.
I started thinking and started dreaming a lot about wearing my hijab. and suddenly began to experience an unfamiliar feeling – and that is that if someone looked at me, I began to feel disgusted instead of enjoying it.
I felt like a picture of myself with no brain or heart. Finally, I decided to wear a hijab.
It was the biggest decision of my life. For the first time in my life, I felt that I was a strong man.
I act according to what I believe. I don’t care what people around me say or how they look at me.
The first day after wearing the hijab was the most beautiful. I have never felt so happy in my life as I did that day.
I have always wanted to enjoy this life in the world to the fullest. But then the time came to stop him and I did.
After a while, everyone started looking at me with respect in a way they had never seen before.
Everyone started believing in me because they knew I was a good person. What gave birth to this idea among them? – Hijab.
I can go anywhere now and no one looks at me in such a way that I am a picture or a lifeless doll.
