We want our young girls to grow up strong and proud of their faith. How can we encourage them to wear hijab? At what age should young girls start wearing hijab? What is the ruling regarding this?
The hijab is an act of worship and all acts of worship are obligatory on a person when they reach a certain age of maturity. This can vary from person to person. Start encouraging your daughters to learn how to wear the hijab, to make her understand that hijab is a part of her identity.
