Hijab is not religious attire

By Daniel Charles

There is no such word of HIJAB meaning head covering for women in the holy Quran. Hijab is not a religious attire. Also modern Muslims believe it is optional. The option to choose wearing of hijab is a fad created by the Wahhabs of Saudi government. It is not a religious law to wear it.

Australias most prominent Islamic Claric Sheikh Taj Ul Din Al-Hilali, long a lightning rod in strained relations between the government and the Muslims minority, vowed to stand strong against widespread outrage over his description of women who dont wear headscarves (Hijab) as Uncovered meat who invite rape. He apologized for any offense he caused but said that he had no intention for stepping down.

Wearing a Hijab is a violation of Islamic law.

I want to stop wearing the burka, but my family wont let me. Said Khaja Ahmed Sadeqi. Chief cleric at a mosque north of Kabul, said that was un-Islamic. If a woman wants to wear a burka or Hijab no one should say, Dont wear it. It is her choice. If a woman does not want to wear a burka and someone forces her to do so, this is a violation of Islamic law, said Sadeqi, who also serves as a Supreme Court judge. The Afghan burka is merely a social custom. In some areas, this social custom has become a religion. The Associated Press The Hamilton Spectator Monday, June11, 2007


Surah. 24:31. (O Muhammad), order the Muslim women not to stare at men with lust (Do not commit adultery) and do not show their makeup except which is displayed of itself, and keep their light shawls Bikhumurihinna over their breasts and necks. (not to expose bust line) They should not show their beauty makeup except to their husbands, fathers, sons, husband`s sons, brothers, brother`s sons, sister`s sons, female associates, their female slaves, those male attendants who do not have any other desire (who lack sexual desire), and those children who still do not know about the birds and the bees (for reason of Jealousy of men and most of the times it ends up as to kill for the familys honour; if woman bring disgrace to the family; brother kills sister or father kills daughter for dishonour of family). They should not walk striking their feet on the ground (no high or wooden Heel shoes) that the hidden, makeup and Jewelry they have may be revealed to men. O Muslims repent to Allah in the hope that you may attain success. Surah. 24: 31.

St. Paul wrote to the Church in Corinth about the head covering, 3. Now I want you to realize that the head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is man, and the head of Christ is God. 4. Every man who prays or prophesies with his head covered dishonours his head. 5. And every woman who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonours her headit is just as though her head were shaved. 6. If a woman does not cover her head, she should have her hair cut off; and if it is a disgrace for a woman to have her hair cut or shaved off, she should cover her head. A man ought not to cover his head, since he is the image and glory of God; but the woman is the glory of man. 8. For man did not come from woman, but woman from man, neither was man created for woman, but woman for man. 10. For this reason, and because of the angels, the woman ought to have a sign authority on her head.

11. In the Lord, however, woman is not independent of man, nor is man independent of woman. 12. For as woman came from man, so also man is born of woman. But every thing comes from God. 1 Co.11: 3-12.

Dupata. Head covering in India and Pakistan.

In Pakistan and India Girls approximately at the age of nine start wearing the scarf (Dupata) more or less about two yards long as head and breast covering over their apparel.

1. Unmarried girls, young adults could wear any colour of dupata.

2. Married woman wear white dupata or according to the festival or season and will almost pull over her face in front of men that she could only see her footsteps to walk. Widows were used to wear black.

3. These days the Dupata matches their attire Some women of High class and in Canada wear the dupata round their necks.

4. In Canada some girls are forced to wear Hajab in kindergarten.

In Christianity men are taught to lower their looks while passing by a woman to show respect and to open the door for any female to let her pass first through the open door.

Women as a 2nd class citizen.

People have quoted, Women according to the Islam are product not human being.

I have read the different translations for the verse 33 of Surah 4. Al-nisa.

It is translated as men are-------

a. In-charge

b. Officer

c. Guardians

d. Protectors

e. Care takers.

f. Custodian of women:

Women as a sex objects.


Arabic: Nisaokum harthun lakum fatoo harthakum anna shitum waqaddimoo lianfusikum.

English: Your women are as a tilth (field) for you so go to your tilth

(field) and plough your field when or how you desire.

Note: Respect for men/women

I have asked as a fun to my Pakistani Muslim friends that while we are in Pakistan I called your father, Cha-Cha and you called my dad, Cha-Cha, and who was the Ta-ya. Children are suppose to call the older brother of their father Tanya and younger brother as Cha-cha. But we never called Taya to each others dad. It was to show mutual respect that we are all equal. And we would call each others Grandpa as grandpa and so on.

If any elderly person was passing through the street we will stop playing and let him/her pass by. If we did not show respect he/she will grab us from the ear and scold us that was better for us because we wouldnt want him/her to go and tell our mom.


Have mercy on me, O God, according to your unfailing love according to your great compassion blot out my transgressions.

Wash away all my iniquity and cleans me from my sin.

Cast the first stone.


ut Jesus went to the Mount of Olives. At dawn he appeared again in the temple courts, where all the people gathered around him, and he sat down to teach them. The teachers of the law and the Pharisees brought in a woman caught in adultery. They made her stand before the group and said to Jesus, Teacher this woman was caught in the act of adultery. In the law Moses commanded us to stone such woman. Now what do you say? They were using this question as a trap, in order to have basis for accusing him.

But Jesus bent down and started to write on the ground with his finger. When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, If any one of you is without sin, let him be the first to throw a stone at her. Again he stooped down and wrote on the ground.

At this, those who heard began to go away one at a time, the older ones first, until only Jesus was left, with the woman still standing there. Jesus straightened up and asked her, Woman where are they? Has no one condemned you? No one, sir, She said.

Then neither do I condemn you, Jesus declared. Go now and leave your life of sin. Jn.8: 1-11.

Sharia Law in Canada.

Please note: There is no real Sharia Law or Shariat in the world except that is written by the God Almighty and the Moses. No one except Christians and Israelite (Jewish Nation) have the book of Shariat, The Old Testament. The main foundation of the civilization is the Ten Commandments. There are no Ten Commandments in sequence in the Holy Quran; which were written by Gods own hand and given to Moses. If anyone, do not know the Ten Commandments of God he/she do not believe in Moses and his God Almighty.

Adopted Country.

In your adopted country of Canada (not Knada) you are free to practice your True religion. And none of us can live one hundred percent according to their religion; so we should not try to force the part of religion on others or for the reason to have it made into law so you can wear it any wear any time as excuse that it is part of your religion.

As you know Allah was a pre Islamic idol god. Please see the references (Muhammad`s Mecca by Dr.W Montgomery Watt, Chapter 3: Religion In Pre-Islamic Arabia, p26-45). Besides idol-worship, they also worshipped the stars, the sun and the moon." (Muhammad The Holy Prophet, the book of Hafiz Ghulam Sarwar (Pakistan), p18 and19, Muslim).
