Wanting to be beautiful is a part of a woman’s nature. Did you still remember a Hijab Fashion style that once become a phenomenal to our Hijab Fashion industry? It took place in the year of 2011 to 2012 when a converted mix Japanese and English Muslim woman named Hana Tajima-Simpson started a Hijab Style that become a famous trending during that time even in Malaysia. Frustrated by the lack of variety in Islamic clothing for convert people like her, she seek for a fashion house that designs western-inspired clothing that conforms to hijab. That is how she got her own Maysaa fashion brand.
Don’t forgot about our Malaysian singer and songwriter Yuna also had once came out with a unique hijab style that is a Turban Looking Hijab. Year by year, she came out with her own style of fashion that she had been recognized in the Western world with this kind of style. Starting that moment, more and more hijab fashionista was born with a fresh looking hijab fashion and style. Muslim woman become creative on their own way. But some ‘Hijabista’ also have different kind of fashion. Some like to wear dress and loose cloth as long as they are comfortable with what they wear.

We can even come out with our own style that suits us best. Hijab fashion has become more flexible but we need to remember that the main purpose of wearing hijab for a true Muslim woman, is not to be stylish or to display your beauty in an aggressive way, but rather to follow the commandment given by the Creator.
Allah says (interpretation of the meaning):
“O Prophet! Tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to draw their cloaks (veils) all over their bodies (i.e. screen themselves completely except the eyes or one eye to see the way). That will be better, that they should be known (as free respectable women) so as not to be annoyed. And Allaah is Ever Oft‑Forgiving, Most Merciful”
