The Risks If You Decide To Take Off The Hijab


Wearing the hijab has become something that is recommended in Islam. Because, there are many advantages and privileges that can be obtained when wearing the hijab, one of which is to maintain the authority of the character and female character.

In the Qur’an it has been explained that wearing the hijab is a command sent down by Allah SWT. Allah SWT says in QS. Al-Ahzab verse 59 which means:

“O Prophet, say to your wives, your daughters and the wives of the believers: “Let them extend their headscarves all over their bodies.” That is so that they are easier to identify, therefore they are not disturbed. And Allah is Most Forgiving, Most Merciful.” 

However, wearing the hijab is a choice. A Muslim woman is free to choose whether she wants to wear the hijab or not, because in Islam there is no such thing as coercion or intimidation. Unisma Wearing the hijab should be encouraged with full desire from within. As with converting to Islam, there should be no coercion and coercion.

Allah SWT says in QS. Al-Baqarah verse 256 which means:

“There is no compulsion to (enter) the religion (Islam); indeed, the right way is clearer than the wrong way…” 

In today’s life and it may happen to yourself or people you know or also know that there is a woman who wears the hijab and then takes it off. Or women who often take it off, keep putting it back on. Hijab Reporting from various sources on Tuesday (08/25/2020), a Muslim woman who takes off her hijab or decides to take off the hijab she has been wearing is tantamount to disobeying the orders that Allah SWT has given and is a hypocrite.

Allah SWT says in QS. An-Nisa verse 140 which means:

“And indeed Allah has sent down power to you in the Qur’an that when you hear the verses of Allah are denied and made fun of (by the disbelievers), then do not sit with them, until they enter into another conversation. For verily ( if you did so), you would certainly be like them. Surely Allah will gather all the hypocrites and disbelievers in Hell.” 

From the verse it can also be explained that if a Muslim woman who plays with the hijab and only wears it as a decoration or even considers the hijab to be a garment that can be worn at any time, then she is considered a hypocrite.

Hijab is not easy. So, it has been explained from the start, when choosing to wear the hijab it should be done because of a sincere intention and encouragement from the heart, not done by force.

Indeed, if women have worn the hijab for a long time, but slowly start not wearing it, there are always many who do not like the decision that has been chosen. Many don’t like it, are considered to have mental disorders, and think that you have a lot of problems. Yep, that’s the risk. Apart from being considered a hypocrite and disobeying Allah’s commands, she has to risk the disapproval of others for the decision to remove her hijab.

Maybe there are many reasons why you choose to remove the hijab. However, Allah SWT doesn’t like people who already believe and live that belief, instead they don’t keep that belief until the end. There is no reason whatsoever to remove the hijab, because Allah SWT is everything.

So, deciding to wear the hijab must be done seriously and full of confidence. Do not later, even change your mind, then let go. Hijab A Muslim woman who always maintains her personal piety is the most beautiful jewelry in the world that can give happiness and a sense of peace in the soul.
