Hijab Trend: Hijab With Volume

So a big thing among stylish hijabis is styling your hijab with a lot of volume. While this is an appealing trend, one thing that sort of bothers me is this direct Hadith: The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “There are two types of the people of Hell that I have never seen: people with whips like the tails of cattle, with which they strike people, and women who are dressed but appear naked, walking with an enticing gait, with their heads looking like the humps of camels leaning to one side. They will never enter Paradise, nor even smell its fragrance, although its fragrance can be discerned from such and such a distance.” [Muslim]

It is important to note that while women assume this means physical hair, the hadith states “heads looking like camel humps” which is what scares me. Now if you are a hijabi who does this look, I am not trying to attack you, but I am trying to research what other hijabis’ takes are on this hadith.

What are your thoughts on the subject? I can honestly say that I have been guilty of using this hijab look, but once I remembered this hadith, I have decided to stay away from the over volumized look. The way I personally avoid it is by tying a low bun versus a high bun when I can.

  1. Asalamualaikum sister. I have seen women sporting it and refrained due to the hadith too. Now I hear that if the flower bobble or ‘hump’ is not above your head, like a bun at the same level as your head,(if that makes sense ;-), it is permissible. But I still avoid it. (btw,this trend lead me to write about the beauty no-no’s of the muslimah in general, http://swankymuslimette.blogspot.com/2013/02/the-beauty-no-nos-of-muslimette.html Feel free to give me your views too.) And Allah knows best.
