Watch and listen for yourselves why Muslim women
wear the Hijab?
Commandments from Allah, our Creator are found in the verses of the Last and
Final Testament to all Mankind, the Holy Al-Qur'an Al Kareem first in Surah An
Noor Verse 30 for Believing Men to lower their gaze from looking at the exposed
aurat @ areas of modesty of women who are not lawful to them and to guard their
30. Qul lilmu/mineena yaghuddoo min absarihum
wayahfathoo furoojahum thalika azka lahum
inna Allaha khabeerun bima yasnaAAoona
30. 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.
and then in the following verse is the Commandment from Allah to the Believing
Women to cover themselves with the hijab over their adornments @ bosom -which is
one of the three main attractions to a woman's physique :
31. Waqul lilmu/minati yaghdudna min absarihinna
wayahfathna furoojahunna wala yubdeena zeenatahunna
illa ma thahara minha walyadribna
bikhumurihinna AAala juyoobihinna wala yubdeena zeenatahunna illa
libuAAoolatihinna aw aba-ihinna aw aba-i
buAAoolatihinna aw abna-ihinna aw abna-i buAAoolatihinna aw ikhwanihinna
aw banee ikhwanihinna aw banee akhawatihinna aw nisa-ihinna
aw ma malakat aymanuhunna awi alttabiAAeena ghayri
olee al-irbati mina alrrijali awi alttifli allatheena
lam yathharoo AAala AAawrati alnnisa-i
wala yadribna bi-arjulihinna liyuAAlama ma yukhfeena min
zeenatihinna watooboo ila Allahi jameeAAan ayyuha almu/minoona
31. 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 their veils over their bosoms and not display their beauty
except to their husbands, their fathers, their husband's fathers, their sons,
their husbands' sons, their brothers or their brothers' sons, or their sisters'
sons, or their women, or the slaves whom their right hands possess, or male
servants free of physical needs, or small children who have no sense of the
shame of sex; and that they should not strike their feet in order to draw
attention to their hidden ornaments. And O ye Believers! turn ye all together
towards Allah, that ye may attain Bliss.-
First thing that any normal man would look at
when being before a woman would be her face, then her bosom if its being exposed
and thirdly her form if not covered properly with adequate clothings.
This natural behavior is transcendental across
all ethnicities and universal in mankind's normal behaviors.
By obeying the commandment to
cover up by Allah, the Muslim women is acknowledged and accorded due respect for
her person than be reduced to being just another object of lust as a primal law
of sexual attraction.
This is the norm for rational and reasonable beings yet there are in society
today, vicious, barbaric, demented perverted demons who molest and rape even
innocent children and women who are properly covered due to their animal urges!
Only recently, the dead naked body of a child was discovered disposed in a
duffel bag, stuffed with a full cucumber and brinjal (egg plant) in her private
parts, which had caused rupture of her rectum into the abdominal walls, causing
This is the face released by the police of the poor unfortunate girl who is a
victim of such vicious animals in our midst.
Does she deserve to die like this? Will there still be advocates to spare the
life's of those devils out there raping and molesting the children and women of
I am all for capital punishment upon such barbarians as ordered and commanded by
The hijab is but a measure to reduce the chances of being harassed and violated
by the animals in the midst of human society.
It's a visual deterrent. The world needs to respect women and protect them
instead of the current trend to exploit and abuse them .
Listen to what the women featured in the videos are saying and try to understand
why Muslim women wear it?
Knowledge is the key to being able to understand and learn to appreciate and
co-exist with one another.
Only the ignorants will mock and abuse the ones abiding to God's Will and cause
so much pain and suffering to the human society.
Learn to live and let live. Insha Allah.
