Saudi sheikh calls on parents to 'groom young girls into hijab'
During a TV show in which people ask for Islamic scholarly advice, Saudi Sheikh Saad bin Turki al-Khathlan was asked whether young girls should get accustomed to dressing "modestly".
He responded by saying parents should apply a dress code on their young daughters even before it is perceived to be Islamically obligatory for girls to cover their hair.
Al-Khathlan defined the age in which it is obligatory for girls to cover their hair as of when they reach puberty.
He warned that if parents do not groom girls into dressing modestly before puberty, they would be more likely to resist the hijab because they have not been conditioned to accept the notion of modesty.
