Which one is your excuse?

Top Ten Excuses for not Wearing Hijab


 I am not yet convinced (of the necessity) of hijab.

I am convinced about the Islamic dress code, but my mother prevents me from wearing it and if I disobey her, I will go to Hell.

My position does not allow me to substitute my dress for Islamic dress.

It is very hot in my country, and I can not stand it. How could I bear the heat if I wore the hijab?

I am afraid that if I wear the hijab, I will take it off at some future time because I have seen so many others do this!

If I wear the hijab then nobody will marry me, so I am going to leave it off until then.

I do not wear hijab based on what Almighty Allah says, (And proclaim the grace of your Lord) (Ad-Duha 93:11), so how can I cover what Allah the Almighty has blessed me with?

I know that hijab is obligatory (wajib), but I will wear it when Almighty Allah guides me to do so.

It is not time for that yet. I  am still too young to wear hijab. I will do it when I get older, and after I go on Hajj!

I am afraid that if I wear Islamic clothing, I will be labeled as belonging to some group or another.
