Q: I am trying to wear abaaya and scarf. My nafs are troubling me a lot and it is making it difficult. Also my husband is modern so I also have thoughts like I’m not dresses smart enough etc. And nowadays females dress up a lot and also I do notice my husbands eyes do wander and also he does dress up so I feel like his dressed up and I’m not. What advice can you give me to make it easier for me?
Another question is that If one is trying to wear abaya and scarf and I look at the clothing in a mall which are not Shar’ia compliant and feel in there heart that those clothes are so smart and maybe that wearing abaya and scarf is hard but doesn’t say it out loud rather they pulled a face that could have been despondent or could have not been is that kufar? Or if they sigh out of difficulty of wearing abaya and scarf, is that kufar?
It is not kufr, but it is not at all appropriate behaviour for a Muslim. It is showing disloyalty to Islam and Islamic values. Beg Allah’s protection and help.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
