Fabulous In Hijab at Darun Naim Ladies Only Market

Aslm Hijabistas

It’s been a busy week here, algamdoelilah, producing garments between load shedding schedules!  We’ve survived and ready for the Darun Na’im Market Day tomorrow…. Uhm, almost ready…busy sewing on buttons to the new Citizen Shirts.

I’ve been attending Madrassah and gathering tools  for spiritual uplifment.  In a nutshell (not that knowledge[islamic knowledge]can be summarised) I learned that we can connect with Almighty Allah with everything we do, by correcting our niyyah (intention) and putting our trust in Him alone.  

Now feeling more excited than before, to challenge myself with a lighter heart and reminder to me and you, there’s a duah (prayer to Almighty Allah) for everything we do. [“Duah is a weapon of the Believer”]

■ Dua for entering the Marketplace ■

“If anyone recites this upon entering the marketplace, Allah will record for him a million good deeds, obliterate from him a million evil deeds, and raise him [His status] a million degrees.” Reported by At-Tirmidhi

لا إله إلا الله وحده لا شريك له، له الملك وله الحمد، يحيي ويميت وهو حي لا يموت، بيده الخير وهو على كل شيء قدير

‘Laa ‘ilaaha ‘illa-llaahu wahdahu laa shareeka lahu lahul-mulku wa lahul-hamdu yuhyee wa yumeetu wa huwa hayyun laa yamootu biyadihi-l-khairu wa huwa ‘ala kulli shai ‘in qadeer.’

(There is none worthy of worship except Allah, alone, Who has no partner. For Him is the Dominion and to Him is the praise. He gives life and He brings about death. He is living and does not die. In His hand is all good and He has power over all things.)

Jumuah Mubarak to you and your families, may Almighty Allah accept our duahs, AMEEN.

These are some of the Fabulous In Hijab designer modest wear items available at the Darun Naim market tomorrow… 

Also available from my  sister in DEEN are sisters indeed! Gouwa Brown Fredericks from Hijabuki in Rondebosch East where FIH wears are now available.  Whatsapp welcomed to Gouwa on 082-476-5341.

Aslm dear Hijabista’s

Where is 2015 rushing off too! It must be my excitement for the Ramadhan just few months away! In just about 100 days, yes! for reals in just 100 days the blessed month is upon us, INSHA-Allah.

I haven’t had a free moment to have a cuppa something cold and blog as I had intended too. I’m not really a stranger if you are following my updates on facebook & instagram. I do hope you are as Fabulous In Hijab had turned 5 in October 2014 already. How time has gone by so quickly, 5 years of Fabulous In Hijab, home grown in thee most beautiful Cape Town and available throughout South Africa via the online store. The silly summer season with vaycays and beach days delayed the intended celebrations but got me ready for more giveaways!

Let me first survive a full calendar for February 2015 and we will do a good couple of great giveaways in celebration of Fabulous In Hijab’s 5th birthday.

My calendar, February 2015 is fully booked so I’m already working in March 2015…. Crazy right. All praises to Allah Alone.

Here’s the deats for February 2015.

Getting your Khamissa on


, , , , , ,

Aslm Hijabistas

Do you also struggle to get started on a Monday? The grey skies in Cape Town today also not making it any easier hey! Naturally I’m a self starter…or rather…uhm, I never stop. That’s what I love most about the fashion industry, as one season ends another awaits.

“Fashion never stops. There is always the new project, the new opportunity”
Carolina Herrera

A few months back I was tasked by my very special customer (I’m not going to name her as I feel the clothes should speak for themselves, and she already such celebrity😉). She explains the women in Dubai wears black Abayas over everything for extra coverage. She was vaycaying there and needed it for extra coverage and modesty but needed it to be fun and colourful.
This was the start of the khamissa range.

Here she is in Dubai.



And here Cape Towns very own “voorloopetjie” – leader (hope I spelt that correctly! )

Fashion has always been a repetition of ideas, but what makes it new is the way you put it together.
Carolina Herrera




So sad the candy stripe Khamissa is sold out, but this is how I styled it.

The Khamissa is now available in navy & white stripe. Please do drop me a Whatsapp message on 084-553-1694. I post nationwide.
Available in Small till XXL.


Please do pop by again, I have to share with you the tulle skirt look post.

Keep me in your duahs🙏

Eid Adhaa at Fabulous In Hijab, Cape Town South Africa


, , , , , ,

Aslm Beautiful Hijabistas

Eid Mubarak🌏
Algamdoelilah, what a beautiful Eid.

Eid Ul Adha celebration, also known as the Festival of the Sacrifice.

The story of Nabiy Ibrahim’s sacrifice is a beautiful one of faith, love and mercy. Nabiy Ibrahim sees in a dream to sacrifice his son, Nabiy Ismail. This was extremely difficult for Nabiy Ibrahim as He continuously prayed to Allah SWT for a son. Years before, Nabiy Ibrahim was ordered to leave Nabiy Ismail and his mother Hajar in the desert. Hajar in desperation and supplication to Allah SWT for any resource, runs between mount Sa’fa & Mar’wa. Allah SWT blessed them with water, known today as the well of Zam Zam.

These rituals are ‘replayed’ during the days of Hadj, and at the end of the holy pilgrimage marks the day of Eid Ul Adha. This year I was blessed to host our annual Qurbaan at my home. Fortunately for me, my family as well as my husbands family celebrates Eid Ul Adha on the same day as those who have completed their Hadj.

Eid Ul Fitr we’d celebrate at my moms and Eid Ul Adha we take turns to Qurbaan at my moms and two sisters, hence my excitement as the opportunity comes around every four years.

Here’s some pics of our day











I wore a coral LEGENDARY dress, so comfortable & cool on the 35deg heat.



Eid Mubarak from my home to yours. May a Almighty Allah accept our sacrifices, AMEEN.

Fabulous In Hijab launches Khamissa range

Aslm beautiful Hijabi’s

Algamdoelilah what a stunning fashion show weekend it was! I hope your time off was spent with the people you love and care for most. The weekend was filled with excitement and lots of running around and would not have been possible without the help of my hubby & kids.

Fabulous in Hijab participated at the Simply Modest Fashion Show held at the protea Hotel Breakwater Lodge V&A Waterfront on Saturday. FIH together with 6 other designers showcased their wears to another sold out event. The 150+ attendees was certainly entertained as designers individual styles were easily recognizable through their designs, some high glamour and a beautiful line up of wedding gowns. Well done to Mujeeba & Tasneem at Little BIG events👏

Fashion show time is a tiny bit nerving for me as I like dramatic looks, more artistic and more intricate designer cuts for the runway… BUT this was a Simply Modest fashion show, and it needed to be just that simply modest..

Here’s some amateur pics from backstage. oh! I must send a special thank you to all the beautiful models, SHUKRAN. It was so easy working with you ladies, your patience with me whilst pinning your scarves, and wardrobe swops and changes went well…
And it was a success…bagged a few dresses as they came off the runway💃
