Hijab - Can I wait till I get Married to Wear Hijab?
  • Question:

    I pray 5 times a day but I'm not a hijabi and I'm willing to wear it as soon as I get married inshallah is that haram? And forcing a wife to wear hijab is that allowed in Islam?


    Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

    Thank you for your question.

    May Allah bless you and give you the strength to do what you know is right. The Hijab is an absolute obligation and you don’t know that you will live to see your wedding. Don’t meet Allah in that sinful state. Also, to say Ill do it after my wedding is like saying oh Allah its too hard now so Ill do it when its easy. Allah is worth your greatest sacrifice and by delaying a command you basically tell Him “you’re not worth the struggle right now”. I pray that you’re able to conquer this and inspire others as well.

    And Allah knows best.
