This is just a collection of photos I culled from a few different Iranian news services…all are inspiring, showing how beautiful proper hejab can be! I really dont understand why Muslim women shy away from proper hejab and instead go for skinny jeans and short shirts!
Ive noticed many Iranian sites are now promoting hejab “as a protection”…its on signs and websites. Personally, I do not cover because its a “protection”…but for reasons of modesty and faith. I dislike the belief that covering somehow makes you safe from harrassment or anything like that. Ive experienced harrassment in Saudi AND Iran and I can tell you, no amount of chador OR abaya stopped it! So I dont really buy into the whole hejab as a protection because men cant lower their gaze or whatever like that or that hair sends vibes which can cause earthquakes (yes some individuals have actually said this to me!). No, it remains a sign of modesty (both genders have their own form of hejab) and religious faith and a sign that you are a Muslim and hence do not engage in certain behaviors!
