    Allah’s gift to Muslim women


    Assalamu Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

    Alhumdu Lillah for giving us the right path of
    Islam and the ability to distinguish the right
    from the wrong. I ask Allah, then anyone else
    who reads this, to forgive me for what I might
    say wrong. Brothers and sisters Islam is not a
    hard or complicated religion. Allah, in Surat
    Al-Baqarah verse 185, says (in the meaning of
    the verse): “Allah intends for you ease, and He
    does not want to make things difficult for you.”1
    So, we might sometimes think that Islam is a
    difficult religion because it requires us to do so
    much, but if we think about it, it completes our
    lives in every beautifully possible way.1

    Islam in the Middle East is not different from
    Islam inthe west, or it SHOULD NOT be. People
    say communities enforce their own rules on the
    way we dress or act. Yes they do, but do we have
    to follow them? Or should we follow Islam instead?
    I’m trying to say that the Quran in America is the
    same book in Yemen, for example, or any other
    country. Practicing Islam may be more difficult
    in one place than another, but Allah will greatly award
    those who face the most difficulties in practicing
    Islam. In this article, I will talk about the Muslim
    woman and her hijab in today’s society.1

    One of the things Allah awarded the Muslim
    woman with is the hijab, with which a Muslim
    woman receives her honor, dignity, virtues and
    utmost respect from her community. Thus, by
    receiving all this, it is, in fact designed to complete
    her beauty. However, it seemslike there is a big
    misconception of the meaning of hijab, so let’s
    define it. Hhijab is the prevention or dividing point
    between two things, where one cannot see the
    other; and the emphasis here is on eye sight.1
    In religion, hijab is meant to protect the Muslim
    woman from men’s eyes staring at her, for the
    purpose of preserving the woman’s beauty, purity,
    virtues and, most of all, her piety. Therefore, hijab
    is not just the scarf that a Muslim woman puts on
    her head; it the clothing that a Muslim woman
    covers her whole body with. Islam has set precise
    instructions on how the Muslim woman’s hijab
    should or should not be, of which some are listed
    below:1

    1- Hijab should cover not only the woman’s
    hair but all body parts. Allah says in Surat Al-Ahzab,
    verse 59, (in the meaning of the verse) “O Prophet! Tell
    your wives and your daughters, and the women of the
    believers to draw their cloaks, veils, (jilbab) all over
    their bodies. That is more likely that they may be
    recognized (as free respectable women) and not
    annoyed. And Allah is Most Forgiving, Merciful.” The
    word jilbab is mentioned in the verse, and it is interpreted
    as the long dress that drops down to feet level.1
    2- In Surat Al-Noor, verse 31, Allah says “Tell
    the believing women not to show off their adornment
    except that which cannot be hidden (such as the hands
    and face, according to some olama’a). Hijab is part of
    the woman’s adornment and, therefore, should not be
    worn for the purpose of deliberately attracting men. 1
    The intention behind it should be the covering of the
    Muslim woman’s body and keeping her self-piety and
    dignity. 1
    3- Hijab should be wide enough not show
    the body features very clearly and subsequently
    attracting ill (perverted) people, with the sick (weak)1
    hearts, to harass them. Therefore, it is senseless for
    a Muslim woman to cover her hair with a scarf and
    wear very tight clothes. In a Hadith, by Abu Hureyrah,
    the prophet (pbuh) said “There are two types of the
    inmates of Hell whom I have not seen in my time: People
    having flogs like the tails of oxen beating people with
    them, and women who would be dressed but appear
    to be naked, who would be inclined to evil and make
    their husbands incline towards it; their hair would be
    like the humps of the bukht camel inclined to one side.1
    They will not enter Paradise nor will they smell its odour,
    whereas its odour will be smelled from long distances.1
    ( Muslim )

    Sisters: hijab, besides being an order from Allah,
    is an identity. It is the message sent and method
    used to show one’s Islamic identity; just as one
    would carry his/her identification card or passport
    to identify himself/herself. Here is a real story to
    illustrate this point. It happened once that an
    American professor met two Muslim girls. The first
    one was without hijab and the second one had hijab.1
    So, he shook the hand of the first one and said to
    the second one, “I know you are Muslim because
    you wear the hijab and I respect your religion and
    will not shake your hand,” at which point, the first
    girl was shocked! 1
    Another real example happened with a Sudanese
    Muslim. As he was awaiting boarding his flight in
    one of Europe’s airports, a woman approached him
    and asked him why the Muslim women cover with
    hijab and jilbab. The brother answered her with a
    counter question: “When you go to buy fruits, do
    you buy the covered ones or do you buy the un
    covered ones that are exposed to flies, dust and
    touching by filthy hands?” The woman replied by
    saying: “Of course, I buy from the covered ones;”1
    and then smiled in admiration to the Islamic logic.

    Last but not least, a point to be taken from this is
    that Islam is the best thing in our lives and following
    it with all its rules that might sometimes seem hard
    on us to do is the greatest gift. I will leave you with
    the words of the second caliphate of Islam, Omar
    Ibn Al-Khattab (rAa’). He is the one who said: “We
    are a nation whom Allah honored by Islam, so however
    we might seek honor by any means other than which
    Allah has honored us, Allah, then, will certainly humiliate
    us.”1

    صدق الله العظيم

    and thanks to allah for giving us the right path
    alhmdallah
    brother Let me say *MSHALLAH

    what you have written is the right way of islam

    and holy Quran never change till end


    قال تعالي:وانا له لحافظون* صدق الله العظيم

    so let me brother say something

    This is a reminder for my sisters who Allah have guided them and wore hejab, but they are still wearing tight clothes.

    My dearest sister, Al hamdollah you have wore Hejab and covered your hair, we ask Allah to guide you always and support you. However we just wanted to remind you sister that proper covering cannot be achieved by wearing tight or transparent clothes.

    The Prophet (peace be upon him) said:

    "There will be in the last days of my ummah (nation), women who are dressed and undressed. Curse them: they are accursed." (At-Tabarani)

    Abu Hurairah related that the Prophet (peace be upon him) referred to:

    "... women who are naked even though they are wearing clothes, go astray and make others go astray, and they will not enter paradise nor smell its fragrance, although it can be smelt from afar." (at-Tabarani)

    so brothers and sisters let us talk about this
    subject more and more to understand

    and hope that our sisters will share it with us

    yeah sisters tell us you r ideas

    brother T_k nice topic



    there is never wrong time to do something right

    Thanks For Supporting The Topic
    And Seeing Its Importance
    I Really Wrote It For The Comunity Here
    Which Is A Majorly Non-arab One
    However, I've Come To Realize That Even
    In Some Arabic Communities, The Girls
    Are Starting To Wear Hijab But With Tight
    Clothes, So I Guess It Applies On Them Too

    In My College Here, Some Non-arab Muslim
    Girls Dress Even Better Islamicly Than Some
    Arab Girls, Which Really Surprised Me
    بس الله يهدي الجميع

    Thanks 3seeb And Hashdiah
