Sporty Muslimah

Now that summers coming up and the weather is getting warmer many sisters may be thinking about taking up a sport, hitting a (women's only) gym or going for a jog in the beautiful warm mornings (or just wish that they could). I know sisters that love or would love to play sport, many of them put off sport due to issues with hijab and it not staying in place whilst taking part in a sport or sportswear not being modest enough. So I 've had a look at some modest sportswear for the sisters out there who want to get back into sport.

First up are some mega sporty hijabs to not only get you looking the part but most importantly being secure and keeping you covered.

  1. Lets make modesty affordable8 April 2011 at 00:49

    I just wish Shukr was CHEAPER! why make modesty expensive!

  2. I know exactly what you mean. But bear in mind the quality of the clothes, the clothes is made from the highest quality materials and stitched (a lot of them by hand by a skilled worker).

    Also when you buy clothes off the highstreet they're cheaper due to the fact that most of the clothes is made in sweatshops in poorer countries.

    This is the reason a lot of abaya's and Islamic clothing shops are more expensive, the same way fairtrade chocolate is more expensive than normal chocolate and organic products are more expensive than the supermarket brand.

    InshaAllah one day when these shops get into better business they can bring the prices down without compromising quality.

  3. yeah, Shukr has beautiful clothing.

    I like the sporty hijabs.
