As-salaamu `alaykum,

JazaakAllaah khair, these are great. Covering chest is an essential part of Hijab.

I like these styles. I wish the instructions were in English. Maybe I'll have my friend translate...

Jana said...

UmmM, you're welcome!

Anon 1, thank you :)

Dilshad, do you mean the actual hijabs?

Sharshura, glad you liked them :)

Mouna, you're welcome! Layering is the best way to use up those shaylas!

Carib Muslimah, maybe one of my Malay readers could kindly oblige? :D

dear frens...

i'm a malaysian. since i have been checking this blog almost everyday, i'm really impressed with all the entries. mabruk jana!!

perhaps i could translate the third picture:

1. wear a black cap ( u may need the hard cover at the front in order to keep the shayla's neat). then take 2 different colours of syalas. put them together, with one of them a quater shoter than the other one.
2. put the syalas with one of the side (left) shorter ( a quater shoter than the other side) and secure them at the back of your neck with small safety pin.
3.nicely pull the longer side (right)of the syalas to the front and to the center of your head.
4. secure with a pin
5. take the left side of the syalas to the front and secure them again with another pin.

I am also from malaysia and proud with your collection of Malaysia style of wearing hijab. Since princessanna has translate no 3, let me translate no 1 and 2.

1. Wear black cap. Use 2 colors shawl. Put it on your head with the other end longer than than another one. Pin under your chin.
2. Pull the longer end to the opposite side of your shoulder. The shorter end to the opposite shoulder. Insert to the side of your jaw and bring it to the back. Use pin to make it look neat.
3. From behind, bring to side of your ear and use pin.
4. Use big size brooch as an accessories (visit my website to get brooch with free shipping - sorry this is the advertisement only.:) )

Picture no 2.
1. wear black cap and shawl and use pin to make it neat. Make sure the left side longer than the right side.
2. Put together right and left end behind your neck and pin.
3. Arrange end of your shawl neatly so its not look inflated.
4. Pull the longer end to the front and then up around your head.
5. Use pin to make the shawl on your head look more neat.
6. Use brooch with gemstones for amazing look (advertisement again - check my website)

He...he.. don't be angry. Its a good advertisement..
