Are you struggling with hijab? Is there something holding you back from putting it on? Do you have thoughts of removing it? As Muslims, we have a responsibility to help our fellow sisters in need. In surah Tawbah, Allah (S) says, “the believers, men and women, are protectors of one another: they enjoin what is just and forbid what is evil…” (9:71).

At all times, and most particularly in times of trials and tribulations, it is the duty of Muslims to stand together helping and supporting one another. Allah has decreed that Muslims should form a tight-knit community or ummah that loves and cares for one another. The Prophet (S) taught that the ummah should act like a body: if one part of the body suffers pain, the other part also suffers. As Muslim sisters, we have a responsibility to support one another in times of need.

At Haute Hijab, we aspire to provide support to those struggling with hijab.  Haute Hijab too is part of the wider community and our service is not only to supply apparel to Muslim women, but also to recognize that community support is needed for those we interact with on a daily basis. As a company, helping our community is part of our core philosophy. 

If you or someone you know is struggling with hijab, please reach out to us. You will remain completely anonymous and upon hearing from you, we’ll put you in touch with someone fit to address your specific need. We have an amazing team of women ranging from religious community leaders to girls who are struggling just like you. These women are available to speak with you, answer your questions, and address your fears.

If you are seeking support, advice or generally someone to talk to or share your thoughts with, please reach out to us at supportgroup@hautehijab.com.
