Islam, Veiling and Society

Isn’t it funny how the society says, “Do not judge a book by its cover.” But then it turns and go about judging the girls/women in cover.

What’s wrong with this, if a lady covers herself with a decent dressing or a dupatta or a scarf or hijabs and gowns or niqab? Huh?

Our religion, Islam, has a dress code for females.

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 khimār 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 (friends), 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.

(Surah An-Nur [24:31])

Even with this knowledge, our people are so naive, so judgemental. Some are like, “Why she covers herself? Does she have something to hide?” While some go by, “When you have no flaw, why cover? Why not show your beauty to the world?”

I have a question for all those people,“Have you seen that food which is placed uncovered? All the flies, dirt, germs and numerous other filthy things find an opening to it.  Will you take a bite/sip knowing it has been exposed to the filthiness? Not without a doubt. Eventually, you throw it away. What a waste! But think, if you would have covered it, not because it has some flaw but to protect it from all that filthiness, would that have been better?

Similarly, a female covers herself, not because she has a flaw to hide but because it is her IDENTITY! She is protecting herself from every random/filthy eye to sit on her. She is displaying her faith instead of her body. Just tell me what is wrong with that?”

If a woman is free to show her body then why is she judged when she chooses to cover it?

I agree there are some who uses the ‘covering‘ for ‘hiding‘ purposes but who are you to judge? Are you perfect? I know you are not. Because we are humans and we are not suppose to be perfect. But one should always keep trying to be close to it. That’s why if someone decides to edge towards being better, don’t create hurdles in their path instead be appreciative. May Allah have mercy upon you and all of us. (Ameen)

Classy is when a woman has everything to flaunt but chooses not to show it.

May Allah help all of us to make ourselves a better person than we were yesterday. (Ameen)

Benefits of Ayat-ul-Kursi

I wanted to share this very important piece of knowledge with you guys. Most of us probably know this already, but we forget and we need a reminder form time to time.

We always need Allah’s protection. Always. But now when I hear about all those tragic incidents I feel we need it even more. It is for our own good so what’s the harm.

There are a lot of benefits of Ayat-ul-Kursi.

I wish for all of you to be safe form the evils of the world.

May Allah protect us all. Ameen

Against Halal??? Seriously?

I was surfing the net to check whether a particular thing was halal or haram. I came across this discussion about ‘boycotting something’ just because its ‘halal’. It was shocking for me.

Such a shame, boycotting something just because it is halal!!! Halal is for everyone. Islam is for everyone. Now if you don’t want to follow it, at least don’t disgrace it.

The problem is not with Islam, its with ‘thinking of people’. You can’t understand something, if you spend all your time hating it. First understand Islam fully, before you go on judging it. May Allah help you. May Allah help us all.

Proud to be a Muslim.

Ramadan

Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic lunar calendar. Every day during this month, Muslims around the world spend the day time hours in a complete fast.

During the blessed month of Ramadan, Muslims all over the world go without food, drink, and other eatables during the day time hours. Ramadan is much more than just not eating and drinking. It is a time to purify the soul, refocus attention on God and practice self-sacrifice.

The Arabic word for “fasting” (sawm) literally means “to withdraw” – and it means not only holding back from food and drink but from evil actions, thoughts and words.

During Ramadan, every part of the body must be controlled. The tongue must be controlled from backbiting and gossip. The eyes must be controlled from looking at unlawful things. The hand must not touch or take anything that does not belong to it. The ears must be controlled from listening to idle talk or offensive words. The feet must be controlled from going to sinful places. In such a way, every part of the body observes the fast.

May Allah help us to do our best.

Islam is “NOT” Terrorism

I was just surfing the net for information on Terrorism when i came across an article written by an Indian against Islam. Typical right? But i am not writing this to say bad things and stuff about Indians just want to clear that Islam is “NOT” terrorism. Though I know you can find much better proof of this by reading the Holy Qur’an but i just want to satisfy my soul that I didn’t remain silent on reading such nonsense.

First please visualize his……..data

The person from India believes that as long as there is Islam, there would be terrorism. Terrorism is an essential core of Islam. According to him this is based on HIS personal study of the on-line version of Qur’an and Hadith from beginning to end……..

The Qur’an is the supreme authority in Islam. The Qur’an is flawless and final revelation of Allah to human beings valid until the day of Resurrection. No addition or subtraction can be made in it. Read it with blank mind because if you read it with hatred and doubts already in your head you can’t understand it better. 

2.190. Fight in the cause of Allah those who fight you, but do not transgress limits; for Allah love not transgressors.

And those who do and still call themselves Muslims are “NOT” Muslims. So, stop mistaking them with real Muslims.
