Hijab With Tight Clothing

When u wear the hijab u feel good
Coz u know its right
But when u put on your tight fitting clothes
The angels take flight
And stop singing your praises

You’re caught up in the middle
Being Muslim and western
Your mind knows that its Allah u should obey and follow
But you’re confused
About which pill to swallow
And u try and follow the middle path
Even though u know their aint no such thing
But u just can’t resist not wearing bling

You’re young and vulnerable
In a society that’s just corruptible
Taking advantage of your naivety
Models with size 6 and 8 clothing
On the billboards and magazines
Brainwashing u

It’s hard to resist
And they persist
Pictures everywhere
Nowhere is safe
So u gotta buy those clothes
And go on a starvation diet to make sure they fit

Doesn’t always go with the hijab
But u try and make it all blend in
Coz you’re a victim of fashion
Which in every nation
Is like a God
Dictating and manipulating
Young minds
Filled with false images of beauty
Trying to conform

I know coz it affects me to

People comment and talk about u
Behind your back they stab u
With words
Cut like a razor
Are u aware?
Does it not faze ya?
Upset ya
Make u feel that you’re letting down your deen

What’s the point
Wearing a hijab
With tight clothing
Gaining reward
And losing it
When u put on your tight jeans and top
Should u not stop and think?

U cry modesty in self defence
Make the non-Muslim woman the basis
And say Islam urges modesty and moderation
Quote modernist scholars
Those who sell out Islam for just a few dollars

You say women in the west are oppressed
And slaves to man and society
Have no respect or dignity
Used and abused like products

But what about you
Who are u a slave to?
Allah or fashion?

U always justify
And compare and contrast
With those who wear less than u
My words may be harsh
But u know it’s true

I’m only saying
What others are thinking
And saying behind your back
Giving u advice
Coz your actions are harming us

It’s easy to judge
And harder to change and budge
From following kufr
At least u make an effort
But Islam we take completely
Coz halfway Islam don’t mean nothing on the last day
When we will all stand in front of Allah naked
