GOMBAK, 12 November 2019: Muslim women can still be fashionable as long as it is within the syariah of Islam, Ayesha Syahira, author of “Being a Quran Tag Girl”, said at the “An-Nisa Night” on Saturday (9 November).

She pointed out that fashion is something every woman can pursue as long as it does not go against the injunctions of Islam.

A fashion show called “An-Nisa Night” was organised by I-Masjid group, IIUM, in its mission to educate IIUM female students to understand what fashion in Islam is.

It was held from 8.00 p.m to 11.00 p.m. at Multipurpose Hall, Mahallah Hafsa.

Two speakers were present at the event, namely the founder of Uswah Official, Ilanah binti Abdullah, and author of “Being a Quran Tag Girl”, Ayesha Syahira, to share their stories in relation to fashion in Islam.
