Few years ago, our Mayor made a new regulation for our city concerning uniforms for government institution. The uniforms now must refer to provisions of sharia, mashaAllah. So, now, the male students who used to have uniform of pants above the knees, revert to long pants 😀 and the girls (and female employees) also use headscarfs.
Good thing is now most of ladies are now considering headscarfs as everyday outfit. Bad thing is, they only think about hearscarfs but ignoring other Islamic clothing requirements. Like this, this is a bit funny, I think 😉
I think it is better than short pants and low-top shirts though, right? And maybe they were short-pant-girls, so this is probably a huge leap for them. Still, may these sisters (and me) get wiser on putting clothes on.
Also, the good thing is, you will see so many cute little girls in hijab wherever you go. Like these kids, coming home from gymnastic class in school. 😀
These girls are coming home from the mosque after studying Qur’an, adorable ♥…
The kids are cute, right? The girls in blue asked me, can we pose? 😆 So I said : “YES!!” 😀
I hope the regulation will bring more benefit to the society. Of course, now the regulation for having certificate of the ability to read Qur’an for kids to enter junior high (approximately 12 years old) brings many many positive influence. Also student’s report cards for Islamic studies every saturday night 😉 . No more running around in the street every saturday night for students 😆 . So the parents are not only focusing on math and science only, right? Now, parents must send their kids to the mosques to study Qur’an and Islam. Alhumdulillah, by being used to come to mosques, kids are not afraid to play there in every occasions. And the mosque near my house, alhumdulillah, it provides the kids a field to play skateboard or football, mashaAllah! (I should take some pictures of it when I have time, inshaAllah)
Of course, some people say that mixing the sharia and public regulation will bring sharia to lower level. I used to think that, too, astaghfirullah. But, now I realize that separation of culture and public regulation with sharia in the most populated muslim country in the world is just ridiculous! Of course, many must be improved, but step by step, things are getting better, specially compare to other cities in my country, alhumdulillah. 😀
