Re: Sister with no hijab but prays

i wouldn't recommend that you approach her since she's a sister
i agree that you can and should make du'aa for her.. but the fact that she prays is really encouraging and a great sign of what's in her heart
and it is said about salaah that if one does it, eventually it will stop all other sins.. that's part of the blessings of the salaah itself, subhanAllah

AND

If you see her again invite her to some halaqahs in your masjid. You are what your friends are, i used to hear this saying all the time but never really thought much of it but the thing I see it in my own life now. The person i was a couple years back and the person I am today is really the same person, i am a very motivated and active and love Allah a lot, the only thing different is my circle of God fearing sisters who motivated me to back my love with action. The sister seems really amazing to me, I know sisters who are hijabi's who arent even on her level to be honest. She has some serious potential (so do all of us) dont look down on her and help her for the sake of Allah. We all have people who have changed us for the better, Allah has opened a way for us by bringing someone into our lives be that person for her and any other struggling sister or brother.


P.S My personnal advice is never come up to someone and tell them to wear this or that or act like this and that if you dont really know them, do this by your actions. Allah only knows how they will take it. Take it from someone who has experienced this

WAllahu Alam

Re: Sister with no hijab but prays

I agree with everyone....dua would be the best thing to do. We don't really know what kind of situation the sister is going through in her life. May Allah make it easy for her to implement the shariah dress code.

Re: Sister with no hijab but prays

Make du'ah for her. I know a lot of sisters like this. Don't befriend her though. Shaytaan is the 3rd between a man and a woman. Sometimes sincere da'wah efforts turn into a relationship. A'oodhubillah, protect yourself before worrying about others (not saying it in a bad way, just a reminder inshaAllah).

Making sincere du'ah is the best da'wah. The fact that she prays is a good thing. Don't assume about people. She might be going through a phase. Allahu 'alam.

Nothing bothers me more than people assuming things about others. Always try to excuse people for ignorance. There is a genuine population of ignorant Muslims out there, so I'm not surprised by what you said. May Allah keep the muslims steadfast on the haqq. Ameen.

Re: Sister with no hijab but prays

Yeah, I used to see a few sisters like this in uni too, there is no reason to talk to her or befriend her as it is no concern of your's imho. Just keep to yourself and do not befriend her or talk to her.

Bottomline: Mind your own business

As others have said, if you want to do anything, just make dua.

Re: Sister with no hijab but prays

SubhanAllah. She seems to understand the importance of salaah, so may Allah guide us and her. We should definitely make du'a that she comes around and starts to wear the hijab. Many sisters pray and are really good at heart and have good intentions but forget the importance of hijab. Also realize that some sisters just don't think of it as a 'big deal' authubillaah, may Allah protect us. Not only du'a, but also inviting her to knowledge circles should help inshaAllah. So let's make lots of dua for our sisters and for us all that Allah keeps us on the straight path. And whatever you say or do, this is a very sensitive topic for many sisters, so be as gentle as you can possibly be.
