Yo!!!! She has some sexy ears?????!!!!!!
Okay so I've posted a few videos on our YouTube page, well three to be exact(not that many) and I've been getting a lot of positive feedback. However some people have been coming at me about having my ears out. I didn't know my ears had soooooo much power to entice! I feel like I'm making steps in the right direction, sometimes there baby steps of fury but there steps none the less. I've come along way since this time last year, alhumdulilah!
I know that proper hijab involves a lot. It's not just throwing a scarf on your head and keepin it movin. I've seen "hijab" in many forms and worn many myself such as: the ears out, the head wrap, overgarment, khimar with shorts(saw this, didn't do it myself) and niqab. For a while there I even felt that if I put a wig on and my hair was covered it was cool. Actually I knew it was still wrong but somehow it made me feel better about not wearing hijab. I think hijab starts on the inside, correction I know hijab starts on the inside. I'm not gonna put anyone on blast but I know sisters who wear overgarments, khimar and niqab and they wild out more than some sisters I know how are jummah hijabis only. The piont I'm making is you have to first know why you are covering and then enter into a covering mindstate. This means you watch your tongue, your interactions and your thoughts. So make your intentions %100 for the sake of Allah and go from there.
Prophet Muhammad(saw) said, "[Ihsan is] to worship God as though you see Him and if you cannot see Him, then indeed He sees you." (Al-Bukhari and Al-Muslim).
I know that I should cover my ears and inshallah I will get to that point soon and honestly, I do appreciate the reminders. We all need reminders sometimes. Let me know what you think.....
PS. I think the reason I struggle with this so much is I think earrings really complete and outfit. Even if your just wearing jeans and tee, throw some fabulous earrings on and tell me that's not an upgrade!!! lol Not an excuse I know, I'm working on it.
Shot out to Aneesah, who put me onto the upgrade of fabulous earrings!!
