I have a new found respect for those ladies who wear an abbaya and shaila in the summer! Honestly they deserve a medal. Yesterday I went to the cemetery to visit my granny and obviously I had to cover up.
Now it was around 3pm and the lovely temperature was 40c so honestly asking me to cover up that much is a crime in itself! Anyhows I wore a black t-shirt and navy knee length jogging bottoms (Its was TOO hot I couldn't wear long bottoms) obviously with abbaya and shaila. Now what is the correct attire for one to wear under an abbaya??
6ab3aan attempting to wear the shailaa is one of the things that I can never master, its just one of those things that I can't get right! It keeps slipping of my hair even though my hair was tied back and had the shaila tigthened bs mako fayda tazlig :/
On the other hand walking in abbaya is so confusing, with the heat and avoiding walking into the graves (I tend to walk into things so watching where I go in an abbaya was No Comment). So what does FourMe do she pulls the sleeves of the abbaya up to the elbow and lift a bit of the side of the abbaya up so I can WALK! Ok ok I checked that there was no one around first so I'm not being disrespectful or anything like that I simply couldn't walk! Elmohim stayed with my granny for a bit and read Sorat Yasin for her and left. I absolutely and completely melted in the heat! But it was worth every minute of it.
For the ladies who wear such attire day and night jad jad alah y3eenkom and you have my utter and complete Respect!!
