Hijab is something that you do not force on our daughters. Hijab in Islam is a way of being it is how you behave and interact. If we teach our children from an early age about modesty (Haya’) and moderation, the outward expression of Haya’ in form of scarf and loose non-transparent clothing will come to them automatically.
If we threaten them or force them to wear the scarf, they will go to resent Islam or may pretend to wear in front of their parents and take it off when they are not there. Especially young girls that are at an age when parents need to be their friend and their counsel.
