Sheikh Muhammad Nur Abdullah, former President of the ISNA (Islamic Society of North America) and member of the Fiqh Council of North America, states: This is an unfounded form of rigidity. A one-year-old girl is not religiously responsible, and therefore, she is not required to wear hijab. It is only required at the age of puberty, meaning, when the girl begins to menstruate. It is also advisable to start training our daughters a little bit before puberty in order to prepare them for it. By no means can we pressure anyone to put hijab on their one-year-old daughter; that is nothing short of extremism and lack of understanding of Islam.
