How to Tap into your Feminine Energy as a Muslim Woman – Part 2

Assalamu’Alaikum sisters! Finally, part 2 of this subject! Last time, I touched upon mindsets and attitudes, this time, Part 2 is all about little habits we can incorporate into our daily lives as Muslim women that make us more feminine. Let’s get straight into it!

Wear Shimmering Oil and Jewels (under your clothing!)

Embrace your femininity by adorning yourself with shimmering oils and wearing beautiful jewelry – all hidden under your clothing. l love, love wearing shimmering body oil because knowing that my skin has a sparkling glow underneath makes me feel so much more confident. It’s like a little secret that I carry within myself throughout the day! Choose oils with subtle fragrances that nourish your skin and leave a light shimmer, making you feel special and elegant. Many shimmering oils are enriched with vitamins and natural extracts – ingredients like jojoba oil, coconut oil, and argan oil, just to name a few. You can even use shimmering body cream if you’re not into oils! Basically, you are taking care of your skin while also making yourself feel as beautiful as possible.

Wearing special jewellery under my clothes/hijab is also like that. Delicate necklaces, bracelets, or anklets that give you a sense of beauty and luxury. These small, intimate touches are just for me, a ritual in where I am valuing my body. It makes me feel adorned and cherished, reminding me that I am beautiful, and only I can enjoy that beauty.

Take it as the ultimate form of doing something “for yourself”. In public, no one will know that your skin is sparkling or that you are wearing the most treasured jewellery piece – and who cares? You are doing this for you, no one else <3

Hair Clips and Hair Care

Take time to care for your hair! As Muslim women, we need to do this the most since our hair is almost always covered. It’s funny, our hair is a precious thing of our beauty, yet we were never raised to have the drive to take good care of it!

Use a bamboo brush, get a good hair oil/mask, scalp serum – whatever it is, because it’s essential to treat our hair with the love and attention it deserves. With femininity, regularly treating your hair with care serves as a daily affirmation of your beauty. It reminds you that even if your hair is not always visible to others, it is still a vital part of who you are. Women have a natural nurturing instinct, and this extends to self-nurturing. By caring for your hair, you’re engaging in a nurturing act that reinforces your feminine nature and provides a sense of fulfillment.

Recently, I got into the habit of buying some cute, luxurious hair clips for myself. And let me tell you, when I get ready for the day, putting on those pretty clips (image below!) in my hair makes me feel SO FEMININE. Like, royalty type femininity. I feel like a princess!

And that’s the thing! This type of beautification is not forbidden to us, and yet we just don’t really think it’s that big of a deal.

Taking the time to value your hair and keeping it healthy will remind you of why such beauty is to be covered for the public in the first place ~

Buy Yourself Flowers + Spend Time in Nature

Treat yourself to fresh flowers regularly, or spend time outside whenever you can. Plants, flowers, the blue sky, fruits, and the fresh air can be incredibly calming and restorative. The Quran often tells us to spend time in the outdoors, contemplating on Allah’s magnificent creations:

And it is He who sends down rain from the sky, and We produce thereby the growth of all things. We produce from it greenery from which We produce grains arranged in layers. And from the palm trees – of its emerging fruit are clusters hanging low. And [We produce] gardens of grapevines and olives and pomegranates, similar yet varied. Look at [each of] its fruit when it yields and [at] its ripening. Indeed in that are signs for a people who believe. (99)

Quran 6:99

This will help you tap into your feminine energy because a large part of it is just “taking things easy”. Letting things flow, and not worrying too much. Nature has that effect on us. Go out for a walk, or heck, even put on those “soothing sounds of nature” videos in the background and just let yourself relax a little. It will clear your mind, helping you to think more clearly and make decisions without feeling overwhelmed.

Also, buying flowers and caring for them (cutting the stems, filling up the vases with water, giving them sunlight) can inspire your nurturing side. This can deepen your sense of compassion and care, both essential feminine qualities. And I don’t know about you, but there is just something magical and fulfilling when you see flowers blooming with their lush, pastel petals after you take care of them.

This feminine energy of calmness and nurturing can become a daily habit, let the nature given to us by Allah inspire you to live with grace, calmness, and compassion every day.

Rest Days

We are women, and women on average need more rest than men. Make sure you put time out of your schedules for relaxation, even a whole day of relaxation (Sunday rests, anyone?). Like I said, feminine energy largely revolves around being in a state of flow, and that can’t happen completely until you give time to yourself. To be in your “go,go,go” mindset is to be in your masculine energy – and you want to save that for your careers, school, and work (but not at an extreme though! Balance is key). When you rest, you become more feminine because you allow yourself to reconnect with your inner self and replenish your energy. True success and fulfillment for anything stem from being able to fill your cup first, so that you can pour into everyone else’s!

Spread Love

In Islam, love and affection for others is greatly emphasized. Our Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), was a very kind man and always made the people around him feel valued. Make it a habit to do small acts of kindness: smiling to strangers, giving compliments, sharing your food with friends etc. Love and compassion are key components of true femininity because it is what builds your relationships. It makes them stronger, as you are the cornerstone of promoting peace, harmony, and cooperation in society (all islamic principles, which is a bonus!). If you make it a habit to always be isolated and detached from people, you won’t get that warm feeling of belonging and connection that comes from fostering loving relationships. As a Muslim woman, one of our main roles is to be a huge part of our families, as daughters, sisters, wives, and mothers – so tap into your feminine energy this way by spreading love to whoever you are with and whoever you meet <3

Let Go of the Small Grudges

Holding onto grudges can weigh you down and affect your emotional well-being. Practice forgiveness and let go of the minor things. Sometimes the grudges we keep are actually really silly when you sit down and think about it. Having these negative feelings blocks your feminine energy since being in a constant state of resentment/anger increases stress, anxiety, and even chronic illnesses. When you let go of negative emotions and embrace forgiveness, you promote holistic well-being, softly fostering both your body and soul. Forgiveness is not just about letting go of the past; it’s also about freeing ourselves from the chains of resentment and bitterness. Your feminine energy will be blossoming here, as you open your heart to the beauty of forgiveness, allowing your feminine energy to radiate outward, a beacon of light – touching the lives of those around you.

In Islam, we are taught to forgive others, because wouldn’t we want Allah to forgive us?

Not only that, but when you let go of the small things, you actually become more high-value. People will notice that you are not a woman who is petty and will hold random things against others for her own grievances. The amount of respect you’ll receive will be so worth it.

And that concludes PART 2 of Tapping into your Feminine Energy as a Muslim! Phew, this was a long one, but I love this topic so much and wanted to give you girls as much knowledge as I could! I hope you enjoyed reading through on this, and don’t forget to watch my video on “4 Islamic Ways to UNLOCK FEMININE ENERGY” here!

With love and sisterhood,

  1. Assalamualaikum Sister,
    You’re doing a great job,Allahumma Baarik🥹🩷.
    The Femininity topic is something that people often ignore while preaching Islam and have rarely heard anyone talking about I’m also sharing these with my friends.Eventhough there is somany Non Muslim women who preach Femininity which doesn’t always align with the principles of Islam so you sharing about Femininity in Islam is something we all need as a Muslim women in order not to fall for their “I’m goddess type femininity”.
    I’m eagerly waiting for your next post ,keep posting sister.
    May Allah SWT reward you and bless you with the best
    Aameen💫

    1. WalaikumAssalam Hiba!
      JazakAllah for your kind words – and you are so right! I saw this same trend of femininity being “ah I’m a goddess” or “I am a godly woman!” and it felt so wrong, until I realized that this is just an exaggeration of what femininity actually is! I’m pretty sure that’s why alot of Muslim women stay away from femininity because they think it’s haram, so that was my goal in this post, to help educate Muslim women on what the real deal is :)
      I hope your friends also find value in what I’ve written and I will continue to write even more!
      JazakAllah again dear sister, may Allah bless you for supporting me XXX
