Beautiful in Hijab by Nayzak Beautiful in Hijab by Nayzak
peace be to you,

I was planning to start an online Islam and Manga Magazine with a few artists here in dA. but I couldn't find enough people to participate, so I postpone the magazine. this drawing was supposed to be for the cover. here I tried a new way to color and I think it doesn't look that bad. what do you think?

after I finished drawing the sketch of this one and before saving, my computer blocked. I couldn't save my file or do anything. I didn't want to restart the sketch so I had to take the photo of the screen with my camera and after restarting my computer, I used the photo to draw the lineart. ^_^

"One of the major misconceptions about the hijab (covering of the body except the face and hands) is that young women are forced to wear it by their parents or by male family members.

Sumayya Syed, 16, says that what parents or men want have nothing to do with it. In fact, she astounds people who ask by saying that every woman should have this form of liberation.

Syed maintains that when a woman is covered, men cannot judge her by her appearance but are forced to evaluate her by her personality, character, and morals. "I tell them that the hijab is not a responsibility, it's a right given to me by my Creator who knows us best. It's a benefit to me, so why not? It's something every woman should strive to get and should want."

The young woman admits to being surprised that many people wonder if she wears the hijab everywhere (at home, when sleeping, in the shower). The truth is that Muslim women only cover themselves in front of men who are not direct relatives (brothers, fathers, and uncles) to prevent indecent acts or thoughts."

if anyone of you there guys/girls wants to participate in the Magazine project, pls let me know. I can give you more details of what I have in mind.


If you don't like the Hijab, know that nobody forces you to wear it.
if you don't like my Art, know that nobody forces you to watch it.
if you don't like Islam, well, I don't really care so you don't need to tell me what you don't like about Islam. :D
but if you like to express your opinion in a respectful way, then you are very welcome. ^_^

be respectful in your comments... if you can't, then please, just leave in peace.

Beautiful :) I like it!

Personally I think every woman is beautiful no matter if wearing a hijab or not.

Also every Religion should be respected and treated friendly.

This is a great Artwork :)

I love your art! MashaAllah!
But I wanted to ask you something!
I used to draw anime style too, but then I stopped cause alot of people told me you shouldn't.
What do you say?
Nayzak Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2013
I don't say anything.

but if you want to read more on the subject by some Muslim scholars, feel free to visit the links in my journal "for the millionth time".

I'm not a Muslim, but I DO cover and my Muslim friends and I love to geek out over head coverings and hijab.

I think this is beautiful. :)

You should try on different Muslim groups and stuff to look for more particapants, it'll be small and grow larger as you go :)

That is really good. I was planning on drawing a girl with a hijab. You have inspired me!
querthe Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
Wonderful drawing and nice way to color.
While not muslim, if any kind of garment (hijab, klimar or so on) are worn because the woman wants, this is more than perfect for me.
If there is a compulsion, and I'm not speaking only about muslim garments, but in general about any kind of compulsion, so it's not good.

Hi, question! Is there a particular reason you draw art in this manga style? Y'know, more rounded faces and eyes. I'm also muslim~
Nayzak Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2012
- simple,
- easy,
- fast to draw and color,
- popular,
- cute and
- I like it.

are these reasons enough? :D
RedSanguine Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
of course :) just curious :) Thanks for letting me know!

This looks great. It's a shame you couldn't get that manga going. I'm not muslim, but I would still read it.
bambi-nymph18 Featured By Owner Oct 9, 2012
I read about the clothing that Muslim women wear and the different meanings behind it. The truth about the clothing usually has nothing to do with the lies I have heard about it. The part about wearing the Hijab that talks about how men will have to judge you from your personality, etc... It makes me a little sad, not because of the Hijab but because in other places where this tradition does not get practiced--a lot of women are judged by appearance. It can cause men to avoid you and they have not even talked to you. And the same for women who judge men for what they look like and avoid them. People judge in such a way and then they can miss out on somebody they could seriously bond with, simply because they were not attractive enough--physically.

I would like to participate :aww:
I dont normally draw manga&anime characters, but I like the idea of having a manga magazine about Islamic characters and seeing how their daily lives are like, ordinary and humorous maybe,
anyway, Id love to hear more about it :D
