What Do Your Children Wear?

Wha?

When you're at home teaching, do they dress up? Do they wear hijab?


muhajabataani (two girls who wear hijab)


Do you? Pajamas? Does what you're wearing set the mood and help you get down to business? Does it not matter?

They look so cute in hijaab and caps, mashaAllah.I specially love the pink hijab :)
I do not home school and my kids wear pretty much the usual while doing homework. I have explained the muslim dress code to my 5 year old son which make him conscious enough to point out any shortcomings regarding it in his books, storybooks,in the media, or while out,LOL.

well my son still wears onesies :P but inshaAllah when we start homeschooling I want him to dress in tshirt and pants anything but pajamas, I think dressing appropriatly can help one focus :)

May ALLAH make things easy for you (AMEEN)

Umme Yusuf: I don't require them to wear the hijab or caps yet but sometimes they like to be like us so we have a few on hand in their size. They have tiny prayer rugs too, lol so cute.

Sarah: I totally agree about the pajama thing. It doesn't work for us (ask me how I know, lol) and we are much more productive when they are dressed.

Take care,

As salaam alaikum,

My little ones like to dress up with my clothes, masha Allah, but around the house they usually don't wear hijab. The older girls were it to make salat and go out most of the time, masha Allah. I try to get them to wear play clothes around the house, so they will have some nice clothes for when we go out.

Wa 'alaikum as salaam wa RahmatULLAHI wa Barakatuh,


I think we got them from Habib's Bookstore in Etobicoke. Usually any bookstore will have them. They are stretchy so they will fit your little one once he's about two or so. Or maybe my son just has a big head ;)


Take care,

Wa 'alaikum as salaam Umm Tafari,

We pretty much do exactly the same thing - play clothes inside and they will sometimes wear their hijabs outside, especially for Eid.

We used to dress up at first (for about a week) but then I didn't want them to ruin their clothes (with markers, paint, clay, you name it).

Take care,
wa salaam,

Asalaamu Alaikum,

Beautiful pics, Masha'Allah.

I have 5 children, and my oldest 3 are homeschooled right now. My daughter,(10) likes to get dressed up and puts quite a bit of effort into looking nice and ready for the day. My two boys, 6 and 8 could really care less. Actually, I have to admit that they rarely wear pajamas that often. Usually I put them to sleep in what they are going to wear the following day, lol. It's a timesaver for me.

Hope your doing well Sister.

You know, I think the kids have maybe one set of pajamas, lol. They don't enjoy wearing them and say that they feel too hot. By the way, that is a time saver; it takes me a bit of time to get these kids ready for things, (where are your socks? How come you can only find one shoe?!) I guess it's time to get organized, lol.

Take care,

These pics are so cute mashaAllah :) My daughter also likes to wear her hijab at prayer time and pray next to me on her little prayer mat :D Sometimes when I'm getting ready to go outside she'll see me putting my hijab on and want to wear hers too, with her shorts haha :)

As salaamu 'alaikum Eva!
