Aren’t You Hot in That?

Bismillah, alhamdulillah, wa salat wa salam ala Rasulullah

Now that the summer is upon us, every once in a while our dear sisters will be asked about their hijab or niqaab: Aren’t you Hot in That?

While, this little piece of dawah literature is meant to turn this simple question into a full-blown opportunity for dawah. Its pretty, flashy and succinct in its delivery and I know a few sisters reading this will be thinking, “Finally someone has addressed this! Alhamdulillah!”

But of course, I’m not a sister so the idea wasn’t mine. I’d like to thank Sr. H. Omar, Sr. Naila and Br. Shaikr for their efforts, in writing it and designing it.

Aren’t you Hot in That?

There aren’t any real restrictions or anything like that on how this is supposed to be used. So the easiest thing to do is to simply print this out on double-sided sheet. You are best visiting Staples or a print shop and getting this done in high quality. You also have other options, like you can shrink it down to a small card size easy to carry around. Or turn it into a big poster for an event. It’s really up to you, and I know sisters are creative so they will think of a better way to make use of this.  🙂

Subhana kallahumma wa bihamdika ash-haduana la illaha illa ant astaghfiruka wa atubu ilayk, Ameen.


  1. JazakAllah Khair for this.
    Last summer, I was on a train, wearing one of those closed overhead abayahs with a niqaab and it was boiling. This non-muslim woman looked at me and she looked a bit scared, so I said to my freind “duuude there should be an air conditioning system with this abayah”
    The non-muslim lady laughed, and smile then asked “so aren’t you hot in that?”
    We had to get off at the next stop and all I could say at the time was “Nah its cool, its not that hot :D”
    lol but yeah that was sucha good dawah opportunity wasted :/

  2. lol – those are perfect time to make ninja jokes.

    I went to saudi arabia once with my moms, and she had the whole set-up on when we used to travel, and i would call her my ninja-bodygaurd.

    But yeah, any physical resemblance of the deen are perfect opportunities for dawah. Its unfortunate that a lot of young Muslims avoid outward practices of the deen in front of others because they don’t want to be socially outcast, these are the same practices that scream “DAWAH” much better than any banners or posters or billboards.

  3. Assalaamu Alaykum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu

    Jazak Allahu Khairan for sharing! =] i just wanted to let you know that i enjoyed this idea so much, i decided to share it with all my blog readers! check out my post here:
