Are Niqab and other forms of Hijab simply traditions and cultural practices?

The topic I'm going to write about today is a controversial topic however I believe that it is an issue that must be tackled. A few days ago on my Instagram account a sister left a comment on one of the pictures I had posted months ago. I am posting the photo here to help you understand the context of the discussion.

The comment was that niqab has nothing to do with Islam. When I tried to explain to the sister that niqab is actually an integral part of Islam, she went further and claimed even the hijab (headscarf) is a tradition and it has got nothing to do with Islam. Unfortunately this is not the first time but I have heard a Muslim sister or a brother say such a thing...

6 Steps to Get Back on Track With Your Goals

Life is forever changing, and with change comes anxiety, stress, and the necessity to prioritize our lives. It is in these difficult moments that we sometimes find ourselves “falling off track” in some important part of our life. For some, it may mean not spending enough time with family, increasing your faith, taking care of your health, or perhaps it is about losing weight, or even saving for that home or car you want to purchase one day.

The reality is that setting a goal for yourself is easy. What is challenging is keeping yourself motivated and renewing that motivation to keep you focused and invested in that particular goal. It is not always easy to stay motivated, but with the proper tools and support in place, you can do anything you put your mind to, In sha Allah.
