Hijab - Why Muslim Women wear it?

By Zainol Abideen

Wednesday, September 19, 2007
Watch and listen for yourselves why Muslim women wear the Hijab?

The 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 own aurat.

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 laAAallakum tuflihoona

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 her death.

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 this world?

I am all for capital punishment upon such barbarians as ordered and commanded by Allah!

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.
