Wig over hijab


Assalamualikum wbr.

Is it acceptable to wear wig over hijab? Is it acceptable to cover the hair with flowers until the hair cannot be seen instead of wearing hijab?

Is there any dhikr/surah to say when you really want to wear hijab on your wedding day but there are others who are not keen and you don’t want to hurt their feelings, especially since they are going to be your new family?



Wa Alaykum Salam,

1. It is OK to wear a wig or flowers only in order to cover a defect in the case of a woman who is bald.
2. The dhikr we recommend would be “La Hawla wa la Quwwata illa Billahil-Aliyyil-‘Adheem“.
