THE DAISY FOR WORLD HIJAB DAY
World Hijab Day is observed every year on February 1st to honour the millions of Muslim women who choose to wear the hijab. Make February 1st as a new version of you. You will be what Daisy flower says about you which you will be full of energy. Nothing can hold you back, and nothing can make you sad. You’re the type who is always smiling, spreading warmth to others, and being the life of the party. You value your friendships and remain steadfastly loyal to them no matter what. The meaning of the daisy flower encompasses new beginnings, hope, innocence, fun, affection, and other sweet characteristics.
Hijab is a headscarf that covers the female’s hair, neck, and upper part but leaves the face exposed. Every year, women from all over the world of various ethnic backgrounds and beliefs are encouraged to try on the hijab for a day to discover how it feels.
Nazma Khan, a Bangladeshi woman from the United States, founded World Hijab Day in 2013. ‘The goal of the event is to encourage women of various faiths and backgrounds to experience what it’s like to wear a hijab,’ said the organizer. Many women who wear hijab face numerous challenges and are frequently subjected to harsh behavior and insults,’ she claims as the motivation for organizing this event.
She thinks that February 1, 2022, is a perfect opportunity for non-Muslim women to try on the hijab as an event organiser. This day is observed in support of Muslim girls and women who prefer to wear the hijab around the world. It’s also to raise awareness about the difficulties that hijab wearers experience. World Hijab Day is observed to promote religious tolerance and understanding among people of different religions and communities, she explains.
Beside preserving a woman’s beauty, the true purpose of the hijab is to strengthen her connection with God and a form of obedience to Allah, but the world has objectified it to be the opposite because of racism and Islamophobia.
Hence, OMERA would like to invite all Malaysians to challenge these stereotypes. Let us stop the hate and discrimination towards women who choose to wear hijabs; to be treated with respect and dignity. Together we support World Hijab Day – was actually initiated by Nazma Khan – day for both Muslim and non-Muslim women to experience wearing a headscarf; celebrated on Feb. 1, the day is an expression of solidarity and support for religious freedom. Let us all be united and stay on each other’s back against any forms of hostility upon hijabis, in shaa Allah.
Aisha, may Allah be pleased with her, said, “May Allah have mercy on the foremost women of the Muhajirun. When Allah revealed the verse, ‘Let them draw their cloaks over their bodies,’ (24:31) they cut their sheets and veiled themselves with them.”
(Sahih Bukhari 4758)
HIJAB IN ISLAM. QURANIC VERSES ABOUT HIJAB

“O you Children of Adam! We have bestowed on you raiment to cover your shame as well as to be an adornment to you. But the raiment of righteousness, that is the best. Such are among the Signs of Allah, that they may receive admonition.” (Quran 7:26)
“And say to the believing women that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty; that they should not display their beauty and ornaments except what must ordinarily appear therof; that they should draw their veils over their bosoms and not display their beauty except to their husbands, their fathers, their husbands’ fathers, their sons, their husbands’ sons, their brothers, or their brothers’ sons or their sisters’ sons, or their women or the servants whom their right hands possess, or male servants free of physical needs, or small children who have no sense of the shame of sex, and that they should not strike their feet in order to draw attention to their hidden ornaments. And O you Believers, turn you all together towards Allah, that you may attain Bliss.” (Quran 24:31).
“O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to draw their cloaks close round them (when they go abroad). That will be better, so that they may be recognised and not annoyed. Allah is ever Forgiving, Merciful.” (Quran 33:59).
