HIJAB Or Islamic Dress Or HOW DO NOBLE QURAN VIEW THE WOMEN " And say to the believing women that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty; that they should not display their beauty and ornaments except what (must ordinarily) appear thereof; that they should draw veils over their bosoms and not display their beauty except to their husbands, their fathers, their husbands' fathers, their sons..." [Surah Noor:Al-Qur'an 24:31] The status of women in Islam is often the target of attacks in the secular media.......................????!!!!!!!!!!!
HIJABIS....... "O prophet, tell your wives, daughters and believing women to draw their outer garments around them (when they go out or are among men). That is better in order that they should be known (as Muslims or as free respectable women) so as not to be annoyed. And Allah is Ever Forgiving and Most Merciful." [Quran 33:59]
The word ' Hijab' comes from the Arabic word 'Hijaba' meaning 'to hide from view or conceal.' A Muslim woman who covers her head is making a statement about her identity. Anyone who sees her will know that shes a Muslim woman and has a good moral character. They hide their bodies and beauty, from the lustful eyes of men, and thus they feel comfortable and free in or outside the house. FREE in the real sense of the word. A CHRISTIAN SISTER A MUSLIM SISTER
OK two women, woman on the left and the woman on the right, both cover their heads with scarves when going out, your job is to guess which one of these two, has to put up with questions like: Excuse me, what's that thing that you wear on your head?' 'How can you breathe when you are wrapped up like this?? Do you have to wear this thing when you go to sleep? 'Why do you hide your hair?' or 'Do you have hair?' or 'What's religion got to do with hair? ' or ' Dont you feel hot wearing it all day long?' etc etc. This goes on and on. And at times like this Muslim women cant help but wonder 'why is common sense so uncommon around here?' And then they try patiently to eduacate one person at a time.
Lets put an end to this curiosity about head scarves: Muslim women dont cover their bodies and hair because their father or husband or brothers told them to but they only do it because its an Order of Allah. They do it to please their God and not to please anybody else. * 'This thing' that Muslim women wear on their heads is called (head) scarf or Hijab or Khimar. * No! Different colors do not mean or represent anything. * Muslim women are required to cover their hair and bodies when going out, or infront of men (who are not related to them.) * Yes, they do take these things off, when at home. * No! They don't wear 'it' in shower or when going to bed at night, only when going out.
Ever wonder why was her hair always covered with 'that thing',...... Why is 'Mary's picture is always painted as fully covered from head to toe, she never reveals much of her skin, did she? Covered up head to toe A Christian sister. ?
HOW DO THE BIBLE AND NOBLE QURAN VIEW THE WOMEN (a) . for it is a SHAME for women to speak in the Church" 1 CORINTHIANS 14:34-35 (b) To chop off her hands for saving her husband's life. Deuteronomy 25: 11-12. (c) Her husband to rule over her. Genesis 3:16. The head of the woman is the man. 1 Corinthians 11:3. Man can sell his daughter. Exodus 21:7. (D) Jesus considers women as dirt that defiles men (since Jesus, the GOD, is the one who supposedly inspired the New Testament as Christians claim): Revelation 14:4 "Those are those (men) who did not defile themselves with women , for they kept themselves pure. They follow the Lamb wherever he goes. They were purchased from among men and offered as first fruits to God and the Lamb." (E) Women are not only spiritually defiling to men as Jesus put it, but they're also physically defiling when they have their menses. Anything they touch becomes unclean: Leviticus 15:19-30 (F) If a woman tries to save her husband from a beating by grabbing the other man's private parts to lift him off her husband, then both her hands must get cut off: Deuteronomy 25:11-12 (G) Fathers can sell their daughters as slave girls: Exodus 21:7-8 (H)Jesus himself in Revelation 14:4 considered women as dirt that defiles men. Even Jesus, the Christians' highest model, despised women in the Bible!! It is crystal clear that women in the Bible are nothing but a defiling dirt and trash to men. This is no insult to women by me. This is just simply the way the Bible views women. Ironically, Jesus confirmed this view.
HOW DO THE BIBLE AND NOBLE QURAN VIEW THE WOMEN There is a great deal of good in some women: "O ye who believe! Ye are forbidden to inherit women against their will. Nor should ye treat them with harshness, that ye may take away part of the dower [money given by the husband to the wife for the marriage contract] ye have given them, except where they have been guilty of open lewdness; on the contrary live with them on a footing of kindness and equity. If ye take a dislike to them it may be that ye dislike a thing, and God brings about through it a great deal of good. (The Noble Quran, 4:19) " Men and women were created for each others, in order to live in peace, harmony and love with each others as husbands and wives: "And among God's signs is this: He created for you mates from amongst yourselves (males as mates for females and vice versa) that you might find tranquillity and peace in them. And he has put love and kindness among you. Herein surely are signs for those who reflect. (Quran, 30:21) " Men can not harm their wives: "...Do not retain them (i.e., your wives) to harm them...( Quran, 2:231) " "If a wife fears cruelty or desertion on her husband's part, there is no blame on them if they arrange an amicable settlement between themselves; and such settlement is best; even though men's souls are swayed by greed. But if ye do good and practise self-restraint, God is well-acquainted with all that ye do. (The Noble Quran, 4:128) " Men can't have sex with their women during Menses, but they can sleep with them and touch them: "They ask thee concerning women's courses. Say: They are a hurt and a pollution: So keep away from women in their courses, and do not approach them until they are clean. But when they have purified themselves, ye may approach them in any manner, time, or place ordained for you by God. For God loves those who turn to Him constantly and He loves those who keep themselves pure and clean . (The Noble Quran, 2:222) " Continue..
HOW DO THE BIBLE AND NOBLE QURAN VIEW THE WOMEN Women have equal rights for them and against them: "..and for women are rights equal to the rights against them but men have a degree over them (in the context of divorce) in what is just . (The Noble Quran, 2:228) " The birth of a female is not a biggest tragedy and the end of the world as it is in the Bible: "When news is brought to one of them, of (the birth of) a female (child), his face darkens, and he is filled with inward grief! With shame does he hide himself from his people, Because of the bad news He has had! Shall he retain it On (sufferance and) contempt, Or bury it in the dust? Ah! what an evil (choice) They decide on? (Quran, 16:58-59) " So considering the birth of females as a bad thing is evil by itself in the Quran. Also, the Prophet peace be upon him said: Narrated AbuSa'id al-Khudri: "The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: If anyone cares for three daughters, disciplines them, marries them, and does good to them, he will go to Paradise . (Translation of Sunan abu Dawud, Book 41, General Behavior (Kitab Al-Adab), No. 5128) " Unsecured men do not represent Islam. I don't have to oppress my wife and keep her down in order for me to keep our marriage. No, I instead use Noble Verse 30:21 when dealing with my wife: "And among God's signs is this: He created for you mates from amongst yourselves (males as mates for females and vice versa) that you might find tranquillity and peace in them. And he has put love and kindness among you. Herein surely are signs for those who reflect. (The Noble Quran, 30:21) " "....Are those equal, those who know and those who do not know? It is those who are endued with understanding that receive admonition . (The Noble Quran, 39:9) "
If you think that these women represent the poor state of Muslim women of the entire world because of religion then you are just a victim of Western media. This is the kind of info you are being fed everyday, in order to ruin the images of Muslims and Islam. These are just a few poor Muslim women who are going through hard times and their main problem is not Islam, its poverty and bad politics. (Above) A very happy and blessed Muslim Family-MASHALLAH
Think.........What's the difference between Miss Universe Pageant show and Horse and Cattle show? Not much, only the best looking ones win. And yet some how the world finds Islam responsible for degrading women and not leting them enjoy their full rights just because they have to cover their hair and dress modestly just like their ancestors. Newsflash: Being able to commit sins freely, wherever you want, whenever you want, is that really freedom or is that really freedom to do evil freely in public? Muslim women DO NOT need that kind of freedom to attract men in the street and if you ask them they would tell you 'No thanks, we are very happy they way we are, all covered up!'
AS A CAB DRIVER And with the Prince, does she look intimidated in anyway? A recent revert to Islam, female petty officer, US Navy. Many women who come to Islam discover how wonderful it is to grasp true femininity, and to live like a woman for the first time in their lives. Very secure and contented And they are everywhere. Sarah Joseph, an English revert who founded "Emel," a Muslim lifestyle magazine.
Who says Muslim women are oppressed??? Islam gives sweeping rights to women: economic, political and social; but without depriving them of their natural femininity. Muslim women are not ashamed of softness, of being a caring and devoted wife or mother, of reclaiming their true femininity. Nor they are threatened by a man making a major decision or taking charge in certain matters. Why? Because women have certain rights over men and men have certain rights over women.. Each one will be judged by God according to their deeds, not their gender. Any man that oppresses his wife or any other woman is not following Islam.

HEY GUYS DO U THINK YOU DON’T HAVE HIJAB???!! People usually only discuss 'hijab' in the context of women. However, in the Glorious Qur'an, Allah (swt) first mentions 'hijab' for men before 'hijab' for the women. The Qur'an mentions in Surah Noor: "Say to the believing men that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty: that will make for greater purity for them: and Allah is well acquainted with all that they do."[Al-Qur'an 24:30] The moment a man looks at a woman and if any brazen or unashamed thought comes to his mind, he should lower his gaze................
According to Qur'an and Sunnah there are basically six criteria for observing 'Hijab': 1. Extent: The first criterion is the extent of the body that should be covered. This is different for men and women. The extent of covering obligatory on the male is to cover the body at least from the navel to the knees. For women, the extent of covering obligatory is to cover the complete body except the face and the hands upto the wrist. If they wish to, they can cover even these parts of the body. Some scholars of Islam insist that the face and the hands are part of the obligatory extent of 'hijab'. All the remaining five criteria are the same for men and women. 2. The clothes worn should be loose and should not reveal the figure. 3. The clothes worn should not be transparent such that one can see through them. 4. The clothes worn should not be so glamorous as to attract the opposite sex. 5. The clothes worn should not resemble that of the opposite sex. 6. The clothes worn should not resemble that of the unbelievers i.e. they should not wear clothes that are specifically identities or symbols of the unbelievers' religions.
SING &SAY MY DEAR SISTER’S.......MY HIJAB MY PRIDE I dwelled in wilderness I swam in a dark sea I treaded with a blindfold And got entangled But I found a rescuer That gave me dignity It shielded me from harassment It protected me from assault It gave me pride and modesty I reclaimed my honour It earned me integrity And placed me in a class Only the faithful appreciate belonging A rare garment A unique one at that My Hijab my pride! They say am old fashioned They call me a Ninja They say am uncivilized They go ‘this is barbaric’ I can’t imagine myself in that thing’ But I smile with assurance For that ’thing’ is my insurance And am glad to include it in my dress code I shun condemnation And rebuff rebuke I remain undaunted I walk with so much conviction With no iota of doubt ‘ Cos am on the right course My Hijab my companion My Hijab, my pride! SISTER BILKIS FAGMI
Did she ever wear tank tops or shorts or bikinis? NO! I 'm sure you can understand why she dressed so modestly, I hope now you can understand why Muslim women cover themselves completely, right?!!! Dear Sister Or Brother Kindly Refer... Al-Qur'an 24:30 Mathew 5:27-28 Six Criteria for 'Hijab' in Islam Deuteronomy 22:5 I Timothy 2:9 e.g. of Mary I Corinthians 11:5-6 Implementation of Islamic Shariah will reduce the rate of rapes : Naturally as soon as Islamic Shariah is implemented positive results will be inevitable. If Islamic Shariah is implemented in any part of the world, whether it is America or Europe, society will breathe easier. 'Hijab' does not degrade a woman but uplifts a woman and protects her modesty and chastity. .......................So...........?????!!!!!!!!!!
Next time you see a Muslim woman wearing a 'Hijab'/scarf, PLZ DON'T FREAK OUT, Smile and get used to it.
