10 Niqabi Tips
Sneezes are never planned. They catch you out and can leave you uncomfortable. Do not sneeze in your niqaab. Especially a ‘spray-sneeze’ – your niqab will stick to your face and be damp for some time afterwards. It’s very uncomfortable. Try to distance the niqab from your face as you’re about to sneeze or place a hand between your niqaab and your face.
2. Marylin Monroe Niqab
When its windy try to hold down your niqab, or it will do a Marylin Monroe. Your face may be exposed or your eyesight obscurred! Hazard when crossing a busy street.
Always keep a hand free to hold your niqab when going down stairs.
If you wear a niqab without a flap, make sure there are no gaps between niqab and scarf or your face will be exposed.
Smells get trapped in your niqab. Stay away from smokers. Also avoid eating anything with a strong smell, like onions or garlic or cheese, it will linger under your niqab for some time.
Do not approach children who are scared. Especially non muslim kids! Really, its a no no. You may need to deal with screaming, crying and very antagonistic rude parents
Keep a pocket knife in your bag to slice your fruit. It helps you to cute up the right bite size, instead of dribbling fruit juice into the inside of your niqab, which will result in sticky niqab syndrome.
It always helps to keep a straw in your bag. Also be cautious when sipping your tea, so the edge of your niqab doesn’t dip into it.
8. Ice Cream
Do not attempt to have soft-serve on a cone , in your niqab
9. Eye Brows
Depending on the opinion you take on, you may choose to show or cover your eyebrows. When opening, and closing the niqab, make sure there is uniformity. i.e both eyebrows conceals, not one covered and one showing as it will make your face look obscure
10. Niqab Seams
When donning the tie-up niqaab, run your fingers along the seam near the eyes. One seam is smooth and the other seam protrudes. The smoother side will be more eye-friendly and comfortable to wear as it is less abrasive to the sensitive eye area.
