Brought to you by Pixie from ILOVEHISHMATHEBLOG and Boxie from the blog http://and4somethingdifferent.blogspot.com/ (if you don't listen to music turn the little Gaelic music box at the bottom of the page off:D), how to to tie hijab video featuring the Qatari wrap.
The Qatari wrap style lets you show your earrings if you wish to without showing your ears or neck. You will need a tube underscarf (al-amira hijab) or another hijab worn underneath for coverage (I often wear a turkish hijab or another shayla), a long Sheila, and multiple stick pins.
Steps: 1.) put on the al-amira or other scarf. 2.) if you are going to be wearing earrings stick them in now and see that the al-amira hijab covers most of the ears---a little still peeks out and that's why this hijab style itself is not in my books halal 3.) take a long shayla (oblong hijab) and fold it slightly over itself before draping on the head as demonstrated in the vid 4.) place the folded shayla centered on the head so a bit drapes over the head 5.) take on end and pin UNDER the wrap instead of on top 6.) take over end and pin underneath lower on the head 6.) secure a stick pin through the back, a pin on the left side behind the drapey fold, and a stick pin on the right side behind the drapage, to secure it against the breeze.
Viola, the second layer completely shadows the ear but long chandelier earrings peek out on the very bottom. Now, if you don't believe earrings themselves are halal (since this stylde doesn't compromise ANYTHING that must be covered by the majority scholar's view) then you also shouldn't be wearing stick pins, if that is your belief about ornamentation. In my veiw, the only problem with earrings is when girl's compromise their hijabs to wear them. I know someone had written me about the earrings styles often showcased on ARTIZARA's website http://www.artizara.com/Lana-Scarf-p/az030308h.htm and I don't think they are halal (this is the under layer of a hijab wrap for me, not the finished quotient) as they often leave a neck gap and ALWAYS leave bits of the ear exposed. So this style is my solution. LOL, I bet ya'll cannot wait until I come up with a halal way to wear earrings as a niqabi , right?:D
