‘colorful Hijab’

Q: Salamo alekom,

I live in Egypt and i’m 25 years old.

I’ve already read on the website the colorful Hijab is ok and not haram. Could you plz send me the proof of this from sunnah or maybe any strong hadith that allows colorful hijab?

The reason why i’m asking is because i like colors and wear a colorful hijab all the time, i don’t stick to one dark color!
Jazakom Allah

How would adoption work in the United States by an Islamic couple?

Q: How would adoption work in the United States by an Islamic couple? Adoption is a common practice among Judeo-Christian faiths but from my knowledge, Muslims today seem to be cautious to adopt because of the complications it may cause. For example the child is not considered muhrim to the other family members and therefore he/she should not be left alone with family members of the opposite gender. It seems sad that because of these restrictions children don’t have the opportunity to be raised in an Islamic household. Of course foster parenting is always an option but it is generally only a short term solution until they may be placed with an adoptive family. In what instances would you recommend adoption? I realize that the prophet adopted a son, which is one of the reasons it is so appealing to me, however, current adoption systems don’t really favor that style of adoption making it difficult. How could a modern Muslim family make this work practically?
