I want to clear up some confusion regarding hijab. I have studied some basic fiqh & understand its wajib for a woman to cover her hair in front of all men except those allowed. However, I have been told by many woman our beloved Maulana Shaykh Hisham has said if it is too difficult or interferes with your job then no need. I am confident in my own hijab & understand the necessity to be gentle with new Muslims, but this is from `long time` Naqshbandi woman who have just seem to have left the hijab as an unnecessary thing, or something they wear only in front of the Shaykh. Is this OK?
