Review | Hijab Fashion Shop - Abaya

Salaam ladies here is the write up for the review I did on YouTube for Hijab Fashion Shop (See video above).  Hijab Fashion Shop now sells abaya's & maxi dresses. I chose to review the 'simplicity abaya' because I actually really like plain black abaya's which I can dress up or down. This particular abaya costs just £44.99 which I think is worth it due to the high quality of the fabric and tailoring. I usually wear size 54-56 depending on what the fabric is like, so Sister Victoria from Hijab fashion shop took my height and suggested size 54 due to the fabric. The abaya is made from a jersey fabric which tends to hang down, so a size smaller is better otherwise it'd be too long. Also because of the way the fabric is pleated and flows down from the chest, a size smaller wont be too fitted inshaAllah. However, I'm 5ft3 in height (last time I checked) and this size 54 abaya is still a little too long (even with heels) so iA I will be altering it to make i

Salaam. I'm 22 years old peruvian girl & engaged to a Muslim man. Here in my country girls don't wear hijaab, and when I started use it people made fun of me, and calling me names. I really luv wear hijaab :D but sometimes I can't help feel sad, and also my fiance is sad about this. Can u give me some advice plss? God bless u Ameen  Sister A Walaykum assalaam sister A, Apologies for the late reply, I hope you are in the best of health & Imaan inshaAllah.

Review | Islamic Jewels

Assalaamu alaikum! Hope you're all in the best of health and imaan, today I'm writing a review on some stunning hijab accessories by Islamic jewels. Before I start I'd like to ask you to read the disclaimer and then start reading this post. (in other words: no haram police comments without getting your facts straght first, thank you very much) So lets begin... Islamic Jewels is a company based in Trinidad & Tobago who also ship worldwide (yaay for online shoppaholics!). I'll be honest I'm always a bit skeptical when doing online shopping with companies that are not based in the UK or USA, I'm not sure why but I'm always a bit more careful when parting with my money, so reading reviews by people who have bought from them or have dealt with them always help. InshaAllah this review will help reassure you if you're thinking about purchasing from them. Islamic Jewels contacted me and told me a bit about their company, from their very first e-
