Braided Hijab


I love this gorgeous braided hijab, but I'm still trying to figure out how it's done. It looks fantastic! If anyone knows how, let me know!

Salam,

That is very cute! I would also like to know how to do that style. Thanks again for the fabulous blog. I just bought a tunic yesterday based on your suggestions.

Thank you for your sweet comments!

I think I'm going to have to sit down one day and experiment with a scarf or two and see what happens :)

There is a post on my blog how to tie Malaysian hijab and to do this look you only wrap one peice around the neck and braid the three reminaining and make sure to pin them with a strong broach. It is an easy to do look if you see how to tie Malaysian hijab.

I did this for around the house one day but it kept coming down. Hmm I guess the brooch is key.

Thanks for the post.

this is a picture of Inneke Koesherawati, an Indonesian artist and the face of Shafira muslim fashion (an Indonesian muslim boutique), so the hijab style probably one of Shafira's technique. You can ask on the website http://www.shafira.co.id/shafira.asp

Hayah said...

Thanks for the tips girls! I'll have a go and see what I come up with!

Assalam-alaikam Hayah,

This is very pretty - but looks like hard work. I wonder if I could do this first thing in the morning with the kids all going crazy. Also I have to make wudu at work so this would take ages to get on and off. Maybe nice for a special occasion though

lale said...

it is permissible for women to make wudu by wiping over the hijab as it is permissible for men to wipe over there turban

Hayah said...

In short - no it's not. The water must reach the front of your head. And where does it say men may wipe over their turbans?

lale said...

yes it is, but u have to wipe over ur forehead underneath the front and still wash ur neck and ears by putting ur hands underneath,but u do not have to untie it. there is severel references, heres just 2 its all in the hadiths:

1. I saw the Messenger (peace_be_upon_him) perform ablution. He had a Qutri turban. He inserted his hand beneath the turban and wiped over the forelock, and did not untie the turban.(Volume :0 Book - 1 / Purification (Kitab Al-Taharah -C0147)

2.The Messenger of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) performed ablution and wiped over the stockings and shoes.(Volume :0 Book - 1 / Purification (Kitab Al-Taharah -C0159)

Hayah said...

Thanks for the ahadith lale. But they don't say you can wipe OVER the hijab/turban. Water still has to reach the front of the hair, as it says in the first hadith. The second hadith only applies to the socks in certain situations.
