Izara Aishah became the talk of the town this past week after she shared several photos of her donning the long veil (also known as khimar) on her Instagram.
Not only that, the actress also appeared to have removed several of her past posts on social media! As a result, a lot of fans started speculating that Izara has been sporting a more modest look – particularly in conjunction with the start of the Islamic new year.
Despite the positive change, the 29-year-old also couldn’t avoid from getting attacked by internet trolls. In this case, there were a few netizens who called Izara out, claiming that it was forbidden (haram) for her to share photos on herself wearing the headpiece on social media.
She responded by tweeting, “I find this (criticism) too extreme. But if it’s already written in the Al-Quran, InsyaAllah (God wills), I’ll immediately stop because I haven’t cared much about social media for a long time. Thank you.”
In order to dispel everyone’s doubts regarding the netizens’ allegations, the “J Revolusi” actress later revealed that she had already asked the opinion of a ustazah (female religious teacher) about the matter. Izara revealed, “Okay, I already asked the ‘ustazah’. It’s not ‘haram’ at all. Just beware of evil eyes (eyesight accompanied by the malicious nature of envy or jealousy). Thanks, bye.”
Scrolling through the replies space, many of Izara’s followers shared tons of positive and encouraging words for her. Some of her fans also thanked the former “Dewi Remaja” pageant contestant for her efforts in clearing the air on everyone’s confusion about the matter. Here are a few highlighted comments left by them:
- “I pray may Allah ease your journey now and forever. There will always be people who dislike everything you do. But don’t forget that there are also a lot of people who like you and will love you unconditionally. May you always be blessed sister.”
- “Yay, love! In order to avoid evil eyes, always practise reciting surah Al-Falaq. God willing, you’ll be safe.”
- “Take a look at Heliza Helmi for example. She dons the long hijab but is still active on social media.”
- “So proud of you!”
- “Take care, Madame ❤️ ❤️ ❤️”
Frankly speaking, we’re totally head over heels with Izara’s recent look!
