Today is officially my 15th day wearing tudung labuh. Along these 15 days, I went through tons of responses from my close friends and family in regard to my new pious-look appearance. Some say heyy that’s cute!, some say it’s up to you, it’s all about you and some say why..why this big thingy?? Some hurt and some not. Anyway, all mass gratitude to all who commented on it, you have broaden my perspectives on tudung labuh!
So I’d like to end up all speculations bout it by quoting this:
It is not, never and nothing about tudung labuh, it is all about covering our aurah, sister!
Remember what Islam has laid down for us.(based on madhab syafie): a muslim woman must cover all parts of her body, except for her palm and face.
This indicates that Islam is actually that very religion, that true religion that really really cares about its women. Why do I say so? Because Islam gives us the best way to make ourselves, our beautiful sexy astonishing cute bombastic hot *what else, u name it* body, be in the best condition it could be. Every part of our body is beautiful you know. Starting from the silky hair up to our stinky feet, they all can stimulate man’s sexual desire. I know this based on my experience.
Boy: Oh my God..
Girl: tell me or I’ll kill ya.
Boy: I think my tiny volcano (u know what it is) has just spilt out hearing your voice.
Girl: what the..!
OMG!! That is the most eww eww experience I’ve ever had with a man. I mean.. I've never thought that man can be so pathetic in a way. So, here’s my question: when you wear something sexy and obviously yes you do not cover your sexy aurah, and you are standing in front of a man, regardless of his piousness, do you expect him to just stand? Finally you have sexually attracted a man(wow, that’s a success) and now you are blaming them for sexually harassing you?? How pathetic is that!
And how can this be connected to wearing tudung labuh?
Well, lemme share wit you my previous life.
Before this, I was actually freehair. I did not cover my aurah most of the time. I did wear some cute Chinese style stuff and yeah, that was my past. And today, Alhamdulillah thanks to Allah for still giving me chances to live, to change, to be closer to Him than before. Allah gave me hidayah, the true passion in believing and luxuriating my very life.
Then I started to wear scarves- a lot of struggle in there. I wear kinds of shawls, pashmina, tudung bawal, Syrian ect.. I searched for the best that really suit my resolution and style(?). I decided to do this cover-aurah thing the best I can do. I wanted to be as normal as possible, like ones I saw every day.
Suddenly, I realized that most of my scarves do not fully fit the criteria of covering the aurah. Yes, they do cover my hair but my two cuties are still hanging there! People can still see them.
So the next day I asked my friend how to fix this. Here and there. And we ended up buying some koshibos and she taught me sew. Alhamdulillah..Allah sent this little princess to me. I can now freely walk around without having to worry about my aurah. Thank you Suraya. :)
But still, I sometimes wear long pashminas to suit my garments and of course they cover my aurah.. As I said, it is never about tudung labuh, it is all about covering our aurah.
It doesn’t damn matter wearing shawls, pashmina, tudung bawal, tudung labuh, Syrian ect.. what matters is does this really cover my aurah? Can people still see my ‘things’? if shawl covers, just feel free to enjoy wearing it, if tudung labuh covers, why do not you give it a try. If pashmina covers, wear it. Because what really matters is- AURAH. Remember, any woman whose aurah is not covered will be harshly burnt in hellfire..nauzubillah ya Allah.
So, basically, lovely pinky sisters, please do cover our aurah. It is our pride.
