I am a young christian girl. I have always been fascinated with the way muslim women dress. I was so curious about islam that I became a commitee member for the muslims students asociation at university. There was something exciting about goin to my malaysian friends houses and seeing them without their hijabs or abbayas on. It made them look so beautiful. The act of covering up made them look so elegant. At this time I was going out with a muslim brother and I would admit that the only sinful thing we did was hold hands. I am now out of the muslim curiousity phase as I learnt enough to know that Jesus is the way. But somehow I think I was attracted to the modesty and sexual purity of my muslim friends.
Now Im back home, and though I try to dress decently enough to church I cant help but notice the kind of clothes some girls wear to church. I miss the fact that we dont have a kinda of sisterhood like muslim sisters have that promote decent dressing among christian women. I know it would look a bit hardcore if I begin to dress like a muslim sister. But in my heart im pulled to doing this.
Anyway to keep this short, what are your views or experience on this issue.
Do you think this is a problem (societal)? Or is it a matter of changing churches?
