Carrying out acts of worship but not being an observant of hijab

 

Question: I’ve been praying and fasting for 15 years however I haven’t been observant with hijab.

I have the desire to wear it and I want to be a good example for my children, so what can I do to strengthen my faith?

Also my mother doesn’t want me to wear hijab.

 

Answer: The fact that you understand that wearing the hijab is from amongst the commandments of Allah The Exalted that must be observed is enough to encourage you and motivate you to wear it.

The commandments of Allah The Exalted and that which He’s forbidden can’t be compromised as Allah The Exalted says in the Holy Quran (These are the boundaries established, therefore don’t transgress the limits)

Also the fact that your mother doesn’t want you to wear the hijab doesn’t mean that you’re doing something disrespectful towards her because the fault doesn’t lie with you but with your mother because she’s not observant of the boundaries set by Allah The Exalted.
