How This All Works

Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem:

Insha'Allah [God willing], I had this idea to give away hijabs and abayas I don't need, and to help converts, and sisters who do not have the means to proper hijab. It will only work with the help other sisters. My idea: any clothes you or I do not need [hijabs, niqab, abaya] send [ideally] a picture of them [either from the website you ordered them from or from life]and/or a description [in the least] of the item, citing size, colour, what it is used for, a contact email, and your relative place in the world [i.e. your city and country] to the email posted below so that they can be listed on the website.

For example, I (my name will not be posted) have a pink turkish jilbab and matching square hijab. The jilbab would fit a girl or woman who is 4 foot 7-5 foot 1 and who is an American size zero-2. I live in Victoria, British Columbia Canada. I am willing to send it to anyone who lives in British Columbia, Canada, if they could use it. Please only apply if you have two or less jilbabs. [name not posted]

The items you would like to donate to help others sisters can be emailed (pics and descriptions of course) to: (I will also try and get other sisters to help with this endeavor). Sisters interested in posted items can contact the same email address and I will alert the sister who posted the item for donation with the address she can send the item to. To apply for a posted item, you must supply an address for the item to be sent to. Make sense? Insha'Allah it will work. In hadith we are told, that if a sister does not have a jilbab she is to borrow the jilbab of her sister, soooooo, lets all be sharing!!!!!! Love you all for the sake of Allah S.W.T.

very good idea mashallah so difficult to fin abayas and jilbab in my city that may help...

Jana said...

Awesome! I have a jilbab I've never worn, will write up details and send soon inshallah.

*~Ange~* said...

lol.. im already sending my unused abayas to my friends who have started wearing them.
Maybe i have a few old hijabs in my closet though....

This sounds wonderful, mashallah!! However I do have a question. Every company sizes their stuff differently, how would we be able to figure out general sizing for all companies online? The only reason I ask is b/c I'm in need. :P

Ange: Anything when you have it, not if don't:D I too give away all my abayas to friends if they can fit them. My pink turkish jilbab is too petite and too short for most sisters.

Sharshura: with the measurements of your bust in inches, and your height in feet + inches. Please send them to the email though, not post them on the blog! We don't want any perverts knowing our cups size:D I can email you to let you know if any items are available in your size if I have your measurments.

Allah ykamil bihkair. I'd love to help if I can. I will let my sisters back in the US know about this program and will try to encourage my sisters here in Morocco to do something similar.
