Apakah warna kain penting?

Saya rasa itu tergantung selera dan juga keperluan.

Kalau untuk mengunjungi masjid seperti yang anda rencanakan, saya pikir tidak ada aturan untuk warna kain, jadi silahkan memilih sesuai kesukaan atau keinginan anda.  :)

Saya melihat foto teman-teman saya, dan nampaknya mereka selalu memakai hijab berwarna putih di mesjid...

Mungkin itu foto teman-teman anda yang masih bersekolah?

Setahu saya, yang biasanya memakai kerudung putih adalah remaja-remaja putri di sekolah.

kalau saya hanya ingin berbicara dengan orang di masjid, apakah tidak penting warna hijab saya?

Pilih saja warna hijab yang anda sukai.  ;D

Waktu dia kecil, dia percaya pada Tuhan, tetapi waktu dia berumur 9, bapak dia menjadi kanker. Suami saya bersembahyang kepada Tuhan banyak kali supaya bapak dia ditolong, tetapi bapak dia meninggalkan dunia....setelah itu, suami saya berhenti percaya pada Tuhan. Dia tidak mau percaya pada Tuhan yang tidak tolongi bapak dia. Saya memaham rasa dia, tetapi saya masih percaya ada Tuhan/kreator manusia dan universe ini...

Mudah-mudahan suatu saat dia akan percaya lagi pada Tuhan. Kelihatannya, suami anda adalah seorang yang pengertian dan toleran, buktinya dia tidak menghalangi keinginan anda untuk belajar agama.

Saya pikir bahwa masjid ini punya imel-mungkin sebaiknya kalau saya mengirim imel kepada pengurus masjid dan menanyakan kalau kami memutuskan waktu saya bisa pergi ke masjid?

Ya, sebaiknya dicoba kirim saja, sis.  :D

Terima kasih banyak!  :)

Sama-sama.  :)

Semoga Tuhan senantiasa melindungi anda.  :group:

Salaam Sister :)

I used to visit Mosques on special days when many women used to go, so based on that I will answer. Yes, women used to wear Hijabs, but they all did not used to wear the same kind of Covering. Some used to wear Burkas but face showing, some used to wear only scarfs, and some used to wear Burkas with face covered too. So if you want to go, wearing scarf will be fine if you want it. That's how it is here in U.S. In Pakistan, it was different though. There almost all wear Burkas unlike here where many wear scarfs only. Now, I do not know about the mosques where you live.

By the way, women do not go to Mosques all the time as far as I know. I am just saying in case you go and won't find any women there. That's because the scholars say it is preferred for women to pray at home and they will get more reward if they do this. However, some scholars differ. In any case, you will find women in mosques mostly in Eid for Eid praying, in Ramadan especially that's when many women attend mosques,  and in Friday prayers.

As for that monthly time you mean, you don't have to worry about it. No one is even gonna know about it unless you tell them about it.

Salaam FindingRightPath,

Sorry, I just saw your reply now! It's interesting how the rules regarding dress seem to differ wildly between masjids....
Thank you for the heads up about when women visit the masjid! Though this might make it harder for me to go sometime soon-I can't go on Fridays, and Ramadan/Eid have already finished...hmmm....I'll have to keep my eyes open for any chances to visit. In the meantime, I'll just continue to read al'Quran and try and learn more.

Fingers crossed no one notices, though sometimes people can tell with me....cramps... :'(

Don't worry too much about it. Just go during a day. I don't think anything big will happen.:)

Sorry for my late reply-I've had some issues at home and with family lately so I haven't been on here as often...

I went to the masjid on my birthday with my husband. I'm still nervous about the idea of going to learn about Islam, so I decided to just go and see what the masjid was like. We got permission to take photos inside the masjid, and to be honest, I loved being there. When I went, there were only two or three other women from Malaysia there and a Japanese woman who seemed to be like us-just wanting a look. Apart from them, it was just me and my husband.

I feel like it was a good idea to go when there was practically no one else-I got to really enjoy being there and looking at the architecture (I was stunned by how beautiful it was in there!) and also, as it was so quiet and peaceful, I went upstairs to the women's floor and just relaxed for a moment...I really felt at peace just being there. They also had several copies of the Qu'ran on the women's floor which I looked through-the Arabic script truly is beautiful to look at. They sell Arabic/Japanese Qu'rans in the cultural centre there, which I was very tempted to buy...

I didn't get to ask anyone while I was there, but they do offer what appears to be free Qu'ran classes and they also have Arabic lessons. I would like to attend both, but again, I'm worried about learning sectarian biased information, so I don't think I will go to the Qu'ran lessons, but I thought that if I attend the Arabic classes, I can use that as a base to teach myself to learn Arabic to read Qu'ran-I think the lessons they are teaching are modern Arabic for people to use to communicate, but I read somewhere that modern Arabic can be used as a base to learn classical?

I am planning on going back to the masjid by myself-now that I've met the staff in the cultural centre (they seem very kind and friendly) and have been in the masjid and seen what it's like, I feel more confident about going by myself. I'm hoping that if I go when no one is present, I could even pray upstairs without worrying that others will see (I have been trying to pray twice a day, but I know that my way of praying is vastly different to how Sunnis pray, so I will stick out like a sore thumb!) I know I don't have to pray in a masjid, but the peace I felt at the masjid was amazing-I would love to pray there....
