Wearing Hijab

Question: 
Why most of our women consider that wearing hijab is not obligatory? They assert that it is only necessary to be covered and that wearing the headscarf is satisfactory. I wish my future wife to wear hijab, but my mother is against it, citing the above said popular opinion. How to convince her?
Answer: 
Opinion of the psychologist: Such opinion has developed historically because almost three generations of Dagestanis have grown with secular belief under the influence of Soviet regime. Your mother might be afraid of your "fanaticism". Try to explain the advantages of Muslim dress and that Hijab, afer all, in Dagestan is not a wild innovation, but quite a widespread phenomenon. Try to highlight that it is you and not mother who is going to live with the wife and that it is important to you.
