  1. I think there is a misconception about Hijab in the Muslim community. A Muslim is supposed to do and not do certain things. A Muslim should do a certain good thing because it is a good thing to do and not because He/she started doing it. To illustrate the point, consider fasting Ramadan. A Muslim should fast the days of Ramadan. Fasting the first day does not by itself obligate the Muslim to fast the other days. When fasting the first day, a Muslim does not consider his/her ability to fast the rest of the month and then if that ability is in doubt, let’s not start. A Muslim fast the first day, and will fast the second day not because he fast the first day, but because he should fast the second day regardless of what he did the first day. A Muslim may fast some days and not fast other days. Of course, he/she should fast all the days and a sin is committed when not fasting, but that is regardless of whether you fast the prior days. The same argument applies to other commandments.

    The misconception about Hijab, is that once you wear it, you have to do it the rest of your life because you started wearing it. I don’t know where that came from. I think it is perfectly all right if you are not a hijabi, to wear hijab today without committing yourself to wearing it in the future. The point is, wearing the hijab one day does not by itself obligates you to wear hijab the other days. Certainly, if not wearing the hijab is a sin, then to sin some days and not sin others, is preferable to sinning every day.
