A Special Journey Begins.

Do you remember the first time you tried on a beautiful dress that made you feel like a princess? Or perhaps a superhero cape that made you feel invincible? The hijab is a bit like that, but it's even more special.

It's not just a piece of cloth; it's a way of life. It's a choice that many girls and women make to show their love for Allah, their respect for themselves, and their commitment to a special way of living.

 

More than Just a Scarf

When we talk about the hijab, we often think of the headscarf worn by Muslim women. But it's so much more than that. Wearing the hijab is a decision that comes from the heart. It's a sign of faith, yes, but it's also about how we act, how we think, and how we treat others. It's about modesty in our behaviour, kindness in our actions, and respect in our words.

You're Not Alone!

Remember, every girl's journey with the hijab is unique. Some might start wearing it earlier, some later. Some might have lots of questions, while others might be ready to dive right in. And that's okay! This guide, and the Bubble Girl community, is here to support, inspire, and journey with you every step of the way.

 

A Divine Beginning: Khadija's Legacy

Before embarking on our journey through time and across continents, it's essential to acknowledge the very heart of the hijab's story: Khadija, the beloved wife of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). Not only was she an anchor in the Prophet's life, but she also holds the honour of being the very first woman to wear the hijab, setting a precedent for countless Muslim women thereafter.

Upon the divine revelation of Quranic verses emphasizing modesty, Prophet Muhammad conveyed the message to Khadija. Without hesitation, she draped herself with her veil, embodying the essence of the revealed verses and showcasing her unwavering commitment to Allah's guidance.

The verses, which say, "And say to the believing women that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty; that they should not display their beauty and ornaments except what (must ordinarily) appear thereof; that they should draw their veils over their bosoms..." (Quran, 24:31), underscored the significance of the hijab in Islam, framing it as an act of faith, devotion, and obedience to Allah.

Khadija's immediate embrace of the hijab was a testament to her profound love for Allah and her dedication to the nascent Islamic faith. Her unwavering support for Prophet Muhammad in propagating Allah's message further cements her legacy as a beacon of courage and commitment.

Today, Muslim girls globally draw inspiration from Khadija. Though centuries have passed, her story remains a vivid reminder of the strength, faith, and grace inherent in the hijab's legacy.

 

What is the Hijab?

A Beautiful Symbol

When you hear the word "hijab", you might first think of a scarf that many Muslim women wear around their heads. But did you know that the word "hijab" actually means "barrier" or "partition"? It's a beautiful symbol that represents so much more than a piece of fabric.

More than Just Clothing

The hijab isn't only about covering the hair. It's an attitude, a behaviour, and a way of life. It’s about:

Modesty: Dressing in a way that is respectful to ourselves and those around us.

Behaviour: Acting with kindness, honesty, and respect.

Thought: Keeping our thoughts pure and positive, and always trying to learn and grow. 

A Special Choice

Choosing to wear the hijab is a personal decision. It's a way for many girls and women to show their love for Allah and their commitment to their faith. It's a sign of inner strength, self-respect, and a special connection to a rich history and tradition. 

Different Looks, Same Beautiful Meaning

Just as every flower in a garden is unique but they all add beauty, the hijab can look different around the world. Some girls wear long scarves, some wear shorter ones, and others might wear additional garments like abayas or jilbabs. No matter the style, the core values of modesty, behaviour, and thought remain the same.

Did You Know?

While the hijab is an important part of Islam, the idea of modesty exists in many cultures and religions around the world. It's a universal value that many people cherish and celebrate in their own special ways.

 

The Heart of the Hijab: Emotions, Spirituality, and Identity

A Closer Connection to Allah

Wearing the hijab isn't just about following a rule; it's a beautiful way to feel closer to Allah. Just like how we feel warmth when wrapped in a cosy blanket, the hijab can be a comforting reminder of Allah's presence and love in our lives.

Identity and Pride

For many, the hijab becomes a proud part of their identity. It's a statement that says, "This is who I am, and I'm proud of it." Just like a brave knight might wear a shield, the hijab can be a symbol of strength, faith, and commitment.

 

 

Building Character and Resilience

 

Sometimes, wearing a hijab might make you feel different, especially if not many around you wear one. But remember, being unique is powerful! Embracing the hijab can teach you valuable life skills like resilience, patience, and confidence. It's an opportunity to grow stronger and more understanding.

 

 

Empowerment and Independence

 

Choosing to wear the hijab is a powerful decision. It's a way for young girls to take charge of their bodies, their faith, and their relationship with Allah. It's a declaration of independence, showing the world that they're making choices based on their faith and beliefs.

 

 

Did You Know?

 

Many girls say that wearing the hijab boosts their confidence. It helps them focus on their inner beauty, talents, and abilities rather than just their appearance. It's like having a superpower that helps them shine from the inside out!

 

 

Support and Sisterhood

 

One of the beautiful things about wearing the hijab is the sense of community it brings. Around the world, millions of girls and women wear the hijab, and there's a special bond, a sisterhood, that connects them all. It's a global family that supports, understands, and uplifts one another.

 

Why Do Girls Choose to Wear the Hijab?

 

 

Faith & Belief: Wearing a hijab is like wearing a special badge that tells the world, "I'm proud of my faith!" It's a way for Muslim girls and women to show their love and dedication to Allah. Just like how some superheroes wear capes, many Muslim girls wear hijabs to express their faith.

 

 

Identity & Culture: You know how everyone has something special that makes them, well, THEM? For many Muslim girls, wearing the hijab is a part of who they are. It connects them to their family's traditions, their culture, and a big community of hijabi sisters all around the world!

 

 

Role Models: There are so many awesome girls and women who wear hijabs! From athletes racing to the finish line, to scientists making cool discoveries, to artists painting beautiful pictures – they all wear their hijab with pride. And guess what? They started their hijab journey when they were young, just like you!

 

Personal Stories:

Aisha's Tale: "I started wearing my hijab when I was 9. At first, I wore it because my big sister did, and I wanted to be just like her. But soon, I felt so special and connected to my faith. Now, my hijab is my favourite accessory!"

 

Fatima's Journey: "When I put on my hijab, I feel like a queen! It's like a crown that reminds me of my faith and the strong women in my family. Plus, I love matching it with my outfits!"

 

 

So, whether it's because of faith, family traditions, role models, or just because it feels right, every girl has her unique reason for wearing the hijab. And that's what makes it so special!

 

 Starting Your Hijab Journey

 

 

Preparation: Starting your hijab journey is like preparing for an exciting adventure! Before setting out, it's good to understand why you want to wear the hijab. Is it because you want to feel closer to Allah? Or maybe because you admire someone who wears it? Whatever your reason, make sure it feels right for you.

 

 

Choosing Your First Hijab:

 

Material Matters: Just like how you choose comfy clothes to wear, your hijab should be comfortable too! Soft materials like cotton or jersey are great for beginners.

 

Size & Fit: Since you're special and unique, your hijab should fit just right! Look for hijabs made especially for young girls. They're the perfect size for your head and won't be too long or short. All perfect fit hijabs from Bubble Girl are made smaller for girls to achieve the perfect fit.

 

Colours & Patterns: This is the fun part! Hijabs come in all colours of the rainbow and lots of cool patterns. Whether you love bright pink, deep blue, or bubble gum pink, there's a hijab out there waiting for you. Bubble Girls SoftTouch jersey Hijabs come in over 30 colours!

 

 

Hijab Styling Tips:

 

Easy-Peasy Styles: To start, try simple styles. Maybe a basic wrap-around or a cute side magnet. As you get more comfortable, you can try different ways to wear your hijab. Have a look at the hijab styles page for inspiration.

 

Accessorise: Add a sparkly pin or a floral headband to your hijab for a touch of fun! But remember, be gentle so your hijab doesn't get any snags.

 

Matchy-Match: Love matching your shoes with your outfit? You can do the same with your hijab! Pick a colour that goes with your clothes or choose a contrasting colour to stand out.

 

 

Starting your hijab journey is a special time, and it's all about finding what feels best for you. Remember, it's okay to ask questions, seek help, and try different styles until you find your favourite. Every day is a new opportunity to shine in your beautiful hijab!
