 Its not her. You can verify in her Instagram site. (The article provides her Instagram link)

Then I stand corrected in this regard, thank you.

I stand by what I said otherwise, it's still apparent even without the video.

I am being logical. I don't believe I made an assumption.

I'd disagree, we don't know this woman, so what we said about her is assumptions. Anyone can twist a story on media to support an agenda.

Yes, I'm aware news always contains half-truths if not full-on lies, but there is no twisting necessary in this single aspect.

1000s of women on this planet wear a cap like the one she is wearing for example, both muslim and non-muslim. If you go to the middle-east, you will see 100s of women on the streets wearing a "sheila", and when you ask them they will say they are not wearing "hijab", they are just wearing a "sheila" (headscarf). Why would a media outlet look at a style like hers and label it hijab when it has NO resemblance at all? There is literally no other logical conclusion than she herself identified as hijabi. You don't look at a normally-dressed person and call them a policewoman unless they identify as such. What is so difficult and/or antagonizing about this logic? What is there about this to twist and what agenda does it fulfill?

We don't need to know the woman as a person, just like we don't need to know a police officer personally to believe they are police when they state they're a police officer and wave their badge. It is clear what she herself has put forth and what she is proud about.

It's common sense really.

... I'm sorry but I can't help myself...

Out of ignorance perhaps ?  Especially if it's western people writing it, I mean sheesh that happens literally every day . 

What they think is "shariah" or a ritual that has nothing to do with us....whther that's an agenda or not they misappropriate terminology common to us muslims.

I don't know your background but being born here and raised in the US, I honestly expect the news to misrepresent nearly EVERYTHING out of ignorance. Not just Islamic terms.

It's not crazy to think perhaps we should ask the girl first if she really is a self identified hijabi, and if so does she have beliefs that differ in how it's worn?

I hope you aren't as sure as you were seeing her in a picture of her with no hijab on...When it wasn't actually her... That was a bad assumption eh?

Well she did say "my makeover" and she looked pretty similar, not really an assumption but rather it was misleading.

You seem very fixated on the one picture/article of her on dailymail being the reason I believe she self-identified as such.

Just read her quoted comments to the media, make a 1-minute google search, read a couple of articles, and hopefully you will come to realize why I think it is common sense - she is definitely very proud of it to say the least. She has entire media pages bragging about it lol, why persist with the SJW mentality?

Besides, being born and raised in the West, one thing I know for sure is their agenda would be fulfilled if they did the opposite (by NOT mentioning she is hijabi).

Edit:

Here you go, a few quotes, let us hope the SJW comments stop:

"If I want to cover myself up and dress modestly why should that be an issue? I am just like the other contestants. 

"If I am sending out that message it will motivate other people to participate in a beauty contest."

"At the end of the day, I may be the first woman to wear a hijab [at the Miss England final]. However, I am just a regular girl and we all have a fair opportunity in this contest."

My wife even thought what she was wearing was hijab.   A needles difference seems to be too vast of a material difference in the parameters defining hijab.

I guess not everyone knows how to differentiate.   Sounds like we need to do a deep dive on what the acceptable "hijab" formats are.

Every sunni sheikh, shia marj3a, hadith's definition for analysis.

I'm not gonna accept "well we shia do things the right way because we're the true religion" or "we sunnis believe we have the right hijab because we're the true religion" nonsense.

If there's consensus, against my better judgment of what a hijab constitutes, I'll stand corrected.

I respect that, you should never reach conclusions based off that.

Honestly, there is one definite consensus in regards to physical hijab - it should conceal physical beauty. To what extent? that is up for debate I suppose across schools as you've said, however the underlying aforementioned principle is set and stone across every muslim on the planet. Meaning bottom-line, the law student is certainly contradicting this principle by claiming "hijab" and participating in that which contains a criteria where a woman is judged on her physical beauty.

And that immediately should be equated with her promoting fasad?

She doesn't violate physical requirements as they vary,  but the principle?

Perhaps analogous to Someone wearing tight fitting  clothing but still revealing curves and beauty,  which still technically covers,  yet violates the principle ?

If one is extremely beautiful despite wearing proper hijab is she required to upgrade to full on niqab?

Maybe not for you, I was simply making a conclusion that even you would have to admit to. My view is much more than simply just that as per my previous posts. Besides, she stated herself as above

Is this not spreading a message of "have pride in how you look and show it off to people", I wonder how the many ways people will interpret this across the world lol.

Perhaps for you they vary, I acknowledge and respect your view, but my view is set and stone and she violates far more than just principle for me.

Ironically, a posted in another thread just earlier today, I've heard growing up that if a woman is so beautiful that she attracts lustful looks everywhere she goes just from her face, she should wear niqab (although the only place on this planet this MIGHT apply is an insanely attractive woman living in Saudi, i.e. I don't think it applies in this day and age due to social norms and exposure to veil-less/nude women). I asked for a reference and hopefully someone can find a reference for this rule, because it is admittedly something I heard. However, it does make sense.

Then he (asws) said: ‘By Allah (azwj)! The righteous have succeeded. Do you know who they are? They are the ones who are not harming even a particle. The fear of Allah (azwj) suffices knowledge, and delusion suffices the ignorance.

One is not forced to become a "hijabi". There is no compulsion in religion there is Quranic evidence to back that up. If one does not want to wear hijab their choice. As for equating to fasad-- yes of course. There are so called Muslims causing trouble around the world because they call themselves Muslims-- even though any rational person would not think of them to be Muslim. Fasad or corruption in English terms can be something really simple or huge, because simple issues rise to larger issues-- that is overall the concept of corruption. There are actually you tube videos online where people pretend they are hijabis and people legitimately believe them--who do haram acts which I will not discuss. Now you may say a beauty pageant is not haram well I can say participating in music videos is not haram too then.

You see that's how corruption starts. 

 

I am actually surprised this topic/ discussion is still continued.

I guess what I'm trying to say is. I don't think this girl is saying this is the way hikab should be worn, and I represent all Muslims, everyone follow what I do.  She is still a Muslim, not  a fake pretend one. 

@dragonxx feels there's a compelling enough argument / evidence  to say otherwise with regard to her promoting fasad (not regarding her being or not being Muslim). 

But really I'm just trying to rationalize and digest the discussion and come to a conclusion. 

And now I think I can see why I have such a problem with all of this here, because I kind of believe no one really knows the real truth ..But here you all follow a set of beliefs. But because you are that certain of what you believe in to the point where you kind of assert what you think is right because you  believe a hundred percent that it's right,.. hence you call it promoting fasad  in what this girl is doing.

Whereas confused me, is sayin anything anybody says right or wrong 100% definitively is promoting facade cuz i beleive no one really knows anything... 

 So telling people the proper way to wear hijab in my book is promoting fasad I guess, which or course for your  reasons will disagree with And that's cool .

I mean @Islandsandmirrorss point was beauty extends beyond physical and she believe the girl is saying there should be beauty pageants that go beyond the physical and that should encourage women to participate.

I happen to agree with her, mostly.

If you were accustomed to these beauty pageants  (which I don't expect us to be, since mostly women are),  participating while wearing and covering most of the hair and body is practical suicide in terms of dampening their chances to win or even noticed. Typically, beurocracy and politics play into these events and then the woman or contestant with not the best merits wins or is recognized.   If anything,  anti-Muslim forces would suppress this girl and not even give her the light of day of recognition.

Most white and non eastern cultured people  will only see the message "this girl doesn't want to win based on looks"  "this girl has something to say"

Which makes sense why the girl never dreamed of being a finalist,  it seemed she knew her attempt at making her message was doomed to fail because of her look.

She compromised the "real hijab" (whether intentionally or unintentionally) to probably give herself as much as an edge to get recognized which is where I can see your point of contention.

I'll be lying if I said I know 100% of anything. That girl in of itself is not promoting fasad- that is a bit absurd-- the ideology is promoting fasad-- the notion that anyone can choose what to make permissible and what is not permissible is fasad. I definitely understand that you are confused which is completely alright, by all means I understand why you are confused because in reality everything is confusing. I question a lot of things, but when given facts and logical evidence I become sound. It is not good to stay confused forever.

I would never tell people what is the proper hijab because I don't know. Everyone has their own interpretations of what is hijab based on what sounds logical to them and that is between them and God. I agree with telling people to wear proper hijab is fasad, because it is not following the rules that religion is not compulsory. The truth can get muddled with everything that is why people of this era have the largest trial of all mankind. The old days during the prophet's time was much easier to follow the right path in my opinion. 

I agree with no one knows the real truth because no one does. There is no one to ascertain the truth. Only our minds and logic and evidence. That is why every human being must study and reason with logic.

her pride is a fake pride ,that western propaganda system makes a caricature from Hijabi women to weaken morals of muslim society around the world ,if want spread message that Hijab is not barrier why they don't show a successful Hijabi woman in field like as science or sport ,their propaganda system is just focused on spreading lust everywhere they show women as babymaking machines in Islamic society that they change them to heroes of Fashion show not a successful teacher or scientist or physician & other stuff.

Sub7an'Allah,  قَلِيلًا مَّا تَتَذَكَّرُونَ

How seldom do you keep this in mind!

I believe if more of our muslim brothers and sisters are aware of the shortness of this dunya and focused on their akheera and the time of accountability, we wouldn't have topics like this that would reach over +15 pages long debating if a muslimah should be on a platform revealing her body.  

God help us. Sadaqat ya Rasoul Allah.  0:41  We are living this era!

Sometimes those sports girls wear really tight clothes, so that's problematic too, even if sports in themselves are great.

True,  in HS they had uniforms of shorts and shirts, but I would wear sweats, long shirts, and long sleeves---> quite modest in my opinion. I still play soccer, but I don't need to wear leggings, shorts or whatever to play like Mo Salah. :pushup:. In all honesty it is possible to play soccer in a dress too, but for basketball idk. I wouldn't do swimming of course in public.

My ex use to say about the Olympics:

That's where the men compete in their sweats and the girls compete in their underwear.

Personally, since the Olympics is a pagan celebratory event, lsIamic countries should withdraw.

She's setting an example that one can wear a headscarf and not feel insecure or out of place.

Plus this kind of exposure contributes to normalization of Muslim presence.

You're all men, and have no say in what a woman can't or shouldn't be doing llololol. 

Unless you're a woman y'all opinions don't really mean much . 

Really ?

Our brothers have every right to comment.  They have mothers, daughters and sisters.  

They are the wali amir of their household.  Our brothers have a huge responsibility of what goes on in their household.

All I have read from Mehar is discrediting our scholars, supporting a fassiqa to attend a haram majlis, and picking and choosing what he wants from the deen, like it is some sort of game.
