So I had this dream...

I went to drop off my son at my parents house so my husband and I could go to a lecture. He went to the masjid to make salah and I prayed at home and got ready so he could pick me up and we'd be on our way.

I heard him honk outside and I slipped my coat on. Heading to the door, I told my mom that there should be enough diapers in the baby bag. I grabbed my niqaab and tied it on.

I said my salaams and closed the door behind me and bounced over to the car.

I could see my husbands eyes grow wider as he stared at me through the car window.

He ran out the car and towards me, "WHAT ARE YOU DOING? IS THIS A JOKE?" He pushed me back towards the house.

"Aren't we going out?"

"Not like that! What's wrong with you?!"

I turned back towards the house and felt the wind blow against my neck.

Wait... wind against my neck? I haven't felt that for years!

Alas, I put my niqaab on without my hijab


Okay, the sad part is... I did this before in read life LOL. It was my first week of being a niqaabi. I was so paranoid that I would go out and forget to put it on, that I skipped the step before that - putting on my hijab! Good thing I was halfway out the door when I felt a warm summer breeze through my hair and ran back inside!

Oh and then there are those windy fall days where I'm just walking down the street and the wind swoops my niqaab up over my head while I frantically try to pull it back down over my face haha.


Mina said...

omg that is soooo funny! i never thouht about niqaabis doing that lolz

Lol subhanAllaah I found that so funny! InshaaAllaah I hope I don't ever do that. (I'm too worried about how my niqab looks, i.e. if it's symmetrical and comfy :p so inshaaAllaah there will be no trouble)

JazakAllaah for sharing
Your anonymous fellow niqabi sis!

KakChik said...

LOL, that was funny sis. Your husband must be thinking that you've gone out of your mind. But... it's only a dream right.


Habayeb said...


About the niqabi swooping up...yeah that happens when i wear niqab once while goin to the uni, i used to wear those sticker ones...and while crossing the road it actually popped open lol i ran half blind on the road towards the other end in order to keep it hanging.

Chloe said...

hahahaha that would look funny! Good thing you caught it before you went out

Candice said...

Lool, that's funny!

Mona said...

I did that once in our house when there were guys in the living room, I was so oblivious!

Safiyyah said...

Salaams Sis:

I did something similar; I left the house with just my undercap. I got as far as the car, lol :)

Megan said...

Oh, that's funny! Good thing there was a breeze.

I dream about somehow having lost my hijab, or about frantically trying to keep it on my head, but it's never actually happened.

Umm Ismail said...

rolling on the Floor and Laughing my Niqab off. :) Yes masha allah I have been wearing Niqab for going on 8 months Now and I still have my Pit falls and jacked up moments. Masha allah i guess it becomes easier in Dur time. I'm still scared of a Stiff Wind and Baby Pull Down BPD.


ModestJustice said...

hahah! Man this happened to me once, but with hijab.

When I first started wearing it, I remember walking out of the house and halfway down the block, after feeling breezes(!) I realized that I wasn't wearing my hijab on! I think I made a national sprinting record that day going back home... c:

Alhamdulillah, I've been on the lookout ever since.

Assalamu alaikom,
I was outside for maybe a half hour before I realized I hadn't put on a hijab. That was embarrassing. And I couldn't believe I was that dense! Another time, I bent over and my slinky hijab slid right off my head. Oops!

I never thought about niqaab flying around in the wind. How do you deal with that? It must be annoying as all get out. If I know I'm going to be outside on a windy day, I purposely wear my scarf strategically secured. Is there a trick to secure niqaab that I'm not thinking of?

Anonymous said...

oh no I did this too lol
eyes serene - you just have to hold it down, or sometimes your coat covers it if you're wearing one that is on a windy day.
I went to a masjid which had fans it was horrible. Every time you make sujud or ruku it blows your hijab everywhere! I had to pray with 1 arm bent behind my back to hold it down. Then sisters told me who go there regularly they have to pin the back down

Noshi said...

I always have dreams about forgetting my niqaab or my hijab & niqaab entirely. And sometimes I start crying when I have dreams that nonmahram men see my face. So funny!

um almujahid said...

assalamu alaykum

I do dream too about going out without hijaab!! But not wearing niqab only lol! :)

Anonymous said...

Anon, ya, at jummah I used to get my friend to pin my scarf to my back when it was summer and the fans were on. So funny. I always think that niqaab would be so nice to wear but I would be so embarrassed if it was flying in the wind!

Anonymous said...

even if it is flying around thats no reason not to wear it. its not something that happens all the time or somethin you cant prevent. sometimes it just catches you off guard like a lot of thigs do you know

Fathimah said...

Sooo vivid sister :)

Maybe you worried about something before you sleep, and it bring to you r dream

Fatima *fake dream intepreter) :p

Thoughts Unchecked said...

Lol! I guess we all have our hijab bloopers! Once when I was praying in the masjid, my scarf which was a little silky, completely slipped off my head during sujud! I was so embarrassed!

Essalam Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barkatuh,


I have done that before! When I started wearing Niqaab, I caught myself before I walked out the door, Alhamdulillah. That's toooooo funny.

Salaam sis.

That was so funny, thanks for the laugh. I've had dreams where I have gone out without my hijab too. In one dream, I have gone all the way to school, out of the train station and then I've turned around put my hand on my head and say "Where is my hijab?". I've had dreams like that on more than on occasion. Love your blogs!

Yasmin said...

YEa wind and niqaab aren't a good combination, so are kids. My stepdaughter has tried plenty of times to pull mines off my face. She would say I wanna see your face and pull it or lift it up. Oh and one time I was wearing one of those velcro niqaabs and while walking in the middle of street, I guess I didn't secure it properly, but it just fell off entirely and the bad thing I was holding something in one hand and tried to fix it with my other hand...didn't work.

Heba said...

I one time walked into my house where my husband was sitting with his brother in law and pulled off my hijab like you do when your just coming in on a hot day or something. I realized right away and threw the scarf over my whole head and while running out of the room. They laughed it off but I was so embarrased.

creative mind muslim said...
