Ask A Question About Islam And Muslims

Asalamu Alaykom,

You should marry the spouse who is most religiously compatible with you.

Not wearing hijab openly is an act of fisq and is a sin. One must remember that such a woman will raise their future kids if Allah blesses them. If a young girl was to see her mother not wearing hijab or dressed in ways which are not proper, she may imitate this. 

The same applies for a woman in choosing a man. Does she want a man who doesn't pray and who may do sins in front of her kids? 

May Allah grant you success 

Yes. No non Mahram man should be allowed to see your photo with out Hijab.

You should do whatever you can to prevent non Mahram men to see your photos with out Hijab.


No, it is not allowed to wipe over the Hijab for Wudhu. Wiping for Wudhu must be on the head or the hair itself and not on cloth covering the head.


Well the rules for hijab are derived from Qur'an, hadith, and the deductions of scholars, and you can find the subject of hijab discussed elsewhere here.

However, I do want to point out that, in many Muslim cultures, the clothing that is traditionally considered respectful for men is loose and long-sleeved, and there is also often headwear. For instance, shaykhs/religious leaders of most groups of Muslims today often wear loose clothing and a turban or other headgear. And, it is often considered indecent or inappropriate for men to reveal themselves extensively unless it is under special circumstances like maybe some kinds of work. To my knowledge, it is only in the modern era that it became fashionable for Muslim men to wear super-tight jeans and so on.

Anyway just a couple thoughts, you can find a lot on the subject of hijab on this website.
