We often hear about girls who wear hijab and use it as a way to make a statement, and I'm curious to find out, if any of these women consider themselves hijabis. Where do we draw the line?! I understand the shoes and the purses, and some of the make up, but they are doing damage to the rest of us who identify ourselves as hijabis. If I'm not mistaken abayahs, and Islamic code of dress is not obligatory or forced in the Emirates, but it's more traditionally and culturally accepted for women to wear abayahs. Please let me know if I'm mistaken. I would love to hear comments from those of our readers from that part of the world.
I'm absolutely disheartened!
