Muslim Mamas!

I have a totally serious question for you...

I live in the South, and there are a few Muslim families that live near me..  How do you all deal with the heat & hotmidity when it is eleventy billion degrees out in the summer time???  

Do you wear less?  Do you sweat it out?? Do you go to the beach, and if you do, what do you all wear?  I'm going to guess it isn't a traditional bathing suit.  

I'm not bashing.. I'm just trying to figure out how you don't pass out with all of those layers on.   Because quite frankly, if you have some sort of secret that keeps you cool - I want to know!

bump! I'm not a Muslim, but I've heard that forswimming, they wear something like a wetsuit. and during he summer, they sometimes wear nothing under their...I can't remember what it's called, bt the big dress thing. and that th wind going through the fabric is really cooling.

 

I maybe completely wrong though.
