Hijab and culture preference Hijab and culture preference Document Transcript

  • Hijab  and  culture  preference    By  :  Sayed  Naim  KHALID,  Kabul,  Afghanistan,  02/March/2013    Today  when  I  returned  from  my  job.  I  was  tired  and  put  my  bag  on  the  floor.  Took  my  iPhone  to  check  Facebook.  Suddendly  I  saw  a  post  from  KHATERAT  AN  SHABI  BARANI  (written  in  Dari),  3  photos  of  the  ladies  with  different  types  of  head  coverings  shown  in  the  photo  below  :       Figure  1:  1  is  equal  to  Muslim  Hijab,  2  is  equal  to  Afghan  hijab  and  3  is  equal  to  Arabic  hijab  So  the  question  arise  that  what  is  a  Hijab  ?  The  most  likely  answers  will  vary  from  that  of  a  woman  wearing  a  head  scarf,  a  veil  or  a  loose  outer  garment.  Hijaab,  however,  in  the  sense  that  it  has  been  used  in  the  Qur’an  and  Hadith,  has  a  far  wider  meaning.  But  here  in  this  article  I  have  just  considered  what  is  mentioned  in  the  Quran.      On   the   photo   the   question   is   ‘   You   favour   which   Hijab  1,2   or   3?’   I   personally   answered   1  as   did   many   of   the   commentors.   I   took   interest   in   taking   645   commentors   to   see   the  results  on  who  likes  what  and  what  do  they  want.  I  gathered  the  data  and  put  it  in  the  spread   sheet   to   have   its   result   presented   graphically.   The   graphs   shown   below   are  shown  with  the  total  numbers  of  votes  for  each  of  the  pictures  and  then  the  percentage  is  also  calculated.     60   49,7   50   40   30   23,8   20,6   20   10   5,7   0   Ismalic   Afghan   Arabic   Non     Figure  2  :  Representation  of  the  data    on  percentage  bases  
  •  In  the  graph  above  you  see  that  49,7  percent  of  the  people  voted  for  the  Hijab  mentioned  in  Holy  Quran.  As  depicted  on  the  graph  for  Arabic  style  of  Hijab  which  represent  23,8  percent   of   people   voted.   The   Afghan   style   or   Chaderi   represented   20,   6   percent   of   the  votes.  Moreover,  we  had  a  group  of  people  who  liked  non.  This  strata  of  voter  includes  5,7  percent  of  the  votes.      The  data  was  also  presented  in  numerical  form  in  the  graph  below.   350   320   300   250   200   154   150   133   100   50   37   0   Ismalic   Afghan   Arabic   Non     Figure  3:  Representation  of  data  based  on  its  number  of  voters  In  the  graph  above  you  can  observe  that  within  645  votes  that  I  chose  from  1  to  645  out  of  2450  votes  without  considering  the  gender,  language  and  the  way  of  presentation.  In  this  graph  the  total  votes  for  Islamic  Hijab  (  in  the  picture  the  first  from  the  lift)  counts  for   320   votes.   The   second   highest   votes   were   counted   for   Arabic   Hijab   which   are   154  votes.  In  third  position  the  votes  goes  to  Afghan  Hijqb  or  Chaderi,  the  middle  one  in  the  picture   represents   133   votes.   In   contrary   to   the   aforementioned   votes,   there   is   one   new  group  which  is  voting  for  no  Hijab.  This  number  of  votes  is  only  37  votes.
