DYI Prayer Skirt (very simple!!!)

6 Aug

Assalaamu Alaykum sisters,

I know I have been making this promise for a long time and I finally did it!!! I really was waiting for my hubby so he could record while I was sewing, but life is full of surprises and things just kept coming up! Family and health always comes first!

Ramadan is right around the corner literally! So this is just a little something to get us sisters prepared! If I had a little daughter, I would make her a little prayer hijab in PINK, insha’Allah one day!!! Ya ALLAH, I make DUA for a little PRINCESS!!! I have my PRINCE!!! Okay, back on topic, so making a praying hijab(is there another name for it???), like my mom would call it namaz ki dupata, and I call it prayer hijab, but am I missing something here? They  really are so useful, and I really love them. I have 2 handy dandy baskets that I keep my prayer mats, hijabs and skirts in, one in my bedroom and one in the living room. I learned this trick from my beautiful mummy JAAN ( she was an amazing women!!!), it helps keep my house looking neat and organized. I could be wearing just about anything and when it’s salat time all I have to do is make wudu and slip on my prayer garments and i’m ready to worship my LORD!! Simple as that. So here is how you can make yourself a prayer hijab too.

What you will need:

2.5-3 yards of FABRIC (depending on how long you want to make yours)




trims (optional)

I really do hope to see some finished products please!!! If you don’t want your faces to be seen, all you have  to do is hide your faces, crop them out, blur them out, or just simply cover them!!! I am just shy of 2000 visitors to my blog!!!  I know there are readers, and many of you email me but are too shy to comment or send pictures. How about the ladies who requested the prayer hijab? 😉 xx

Mas Salaama

I hope to have another post before the start of Ramadan, but we’ll see, I have a few dinners that I need to attend..people to see, stuff to do, trips to prep for and most importantly a great visitor to welcome!!! RAMADAN!!! Insha’ALLAH!!!
