I know that, just wondering whether it's considered to be like cheating or something. Like saying you're a non-smoker when you actually smoke on the weekends (I know, worst comparison ever!).

It's a personal thing, like just between you and God. Wearing the scarf is compulsory but everything else is optional. So if you sort of wear the scarf Monday to Friday but leave it off weekends, it's your choice.

I know loads of girls who wear the hijab but when it comes to social events such as their birthday, friends birthday, wedding; they take it off. It's your choice. Don't know how to explain it, maybe someone else can do a better job.

its actually a good comparison. it varies with different cultures which is what gets confusing at times.

I just wanted to say how much I have thoroughly adored reading this thread. I actually began earlier this afternoon and have only just reached the end. Thank you to everyone who has contributed to it since it began - I have learned so much, and just loved the imagery.

That girl in #487 looks amazing! This might sound like a bit of a silly question, but what do you think about women who aren't muslim wearing a hijab? Like if they are in a country where it's common or something? Because I've herd of several cases where women have done so.

#487 post really is an awesome pic.

In Middle East, most foreigners do wear hijab to blend in and out of respect for the local culture. And I think its something very modest and stylish in itself, just think of it as yet another accessory.

When in Rome do as the Romans
The tourists can't enter churches in Rome (and probably in all Itally and more countries) with tank tops or other revealing clothes, is inappropriate and disrespectful. I think the hijab may also be inappropriate in certain situations

^^^was a piece to protect the hairstyle while driving, or from little rain or wind or cold, I have nothing against when is used for that or just because you like it, but right now could look outdated. Those scarves had no religious significance as the hijab have.
