One piece hijabs are available in a lot of places, these hijabs are very convenient especially for children as fashion and comfort combines together to get your child started towards the right path!

In our beautiful religion,  Islam, all individuals become responsible and accountable for their behaviour at the age of puberty. The Islamic teachings about modest dress apply to any person, male or female, at that time.

In the Quran it is clearly said  “And tell the believing women to lower their gaze (from looking at forbidden things), and protect their private parts (from illegal sexual acts) and not to show off their adornment except only that which is apparent (like both eyes for necessity to see the way, or outer palms of hands or one eye or dress like veil, gloves, headcover, apron), and to draw their veils all over Juyoobihinna (i.e. their bodies, faces, necks and bosoms) and not to reveal their adornment except to their husbands, or their fathers, or their husband’s fathers, or their sons, or their husband’s sons, or their brothers or their brother’s sons, or their sister’s sons, or their (Muslim) women (i.e. their sisters in Islam), or the (female) slaves whom their right hands possess, or old male servants who lack vigour, or small children who have no sense of feminine sex. And let them not stamp their feet so as to reveal what they hide of their adornment. And all of you beg Allaah to forgive you all, O believers, that you may be successful” (al-noor 24:31)

it is important that modesty is ingrained at a early age and muslim parents tend to be careful to install these values at a young age and to ensure children wear appropriate clothing. It is crucial to teach children at a young age to become accustomed to a more pious way of leading a life, rather than waiting for the child to reach puberty, as wearing the hijab simply out of family, peer or societal pressure will mean that the child will not respect the religion but simply be adjusting to meeting the demands of others. It is important to educate children as to their islamic responsibilities and to allow them to make the choice to commit to that decision.
