Hijab Niqab..

 

 

opressed-women

“Face-Vail” had been known among desert communities in India, China, Niger and Arabia; either for men or women..

“Niqab” has all Indian hallmarks, yet I have no solid data.. It had been used by Turkish belly dancers as well as Yemeni Jewish women..!!

Its worldwide fame came by Muslim Arabs; who controversially attached it to their religious practice..
The fact tells that Face-cover, or Niqab in Arabic, is paradoxically used by Ninja, Anti riot police, Thieves, Terrorists, and other groups who either avoid to be identified, or protect their nose and mouth from dust..

From my folkloric research, I know it is related to some ancient perceptions on the woman’s mouth in particular.. Yet, I do not know why..?

Does any one had any CULTURAL or HISTORICAL information on “Niqab”..??

 “I had too much pity and I took off the hijab to visit her. Since that moment, I’m living a double life: I wear the hijab in the city where I live and take it off to visit my parents. I feel so hypocritical, but every time I tried to visit them wearing hijab, they refused to let me in their home….”

It is a million dollar question that no final or “Acceptable” answer is given.. There are great differences between an answer to be accepted by the middle eastern “emotional” mindset, and the one to meet any other “Rationale” mindset.. Let’s be frank and clear; without the typical fears or attires..!

Hijab is not the attestation of the belief; but a tool for modesty.. It compliments tangible and intangible theological issues.. It draws identities of both community and individuals.. It enables unspoken set of close, intimate and personal abbreviations..

Hijab was never a solely hallmark of Islam.. Across all beliefs and religions, Hijab is a statement of sacred practice and envision of life..

Islam was never meant to exhaust its believers in unnecessary confrontations instead of the continuous acknowledgement of the Mighty Creator swt.. This is in both public and private venues and events.. Muslims are advised to avoid wasting time and energy in nonsense, and focus on progressive matters and ways to enforce the belief rather than defending it..

If we look to the matters from the point of view that once AbdulMutalib had put prior to Islam; that the House has its own God to protect.. We shall invest all resources to empower, strengthen and understand.. rather than defend, protect or shield.. Then, all practices will be gauged by the inner sense rather than the policing one..

Allah swt looks into your heart.. measure your brightness.. and is pleased by your sincerity.. Anything else, including Hijab, Bear or Turban is just a compliment.. If ones inner is empty, what any custom would do..?

This is not a call to take off the Hijab.. but to realize that to live with or without is not the problem.. nor the true wrongdoing.. A True Muslim Believer would magic the senses of all surrounding people; to witness the belief not the believer..!!

Got it..?

O’ Men..
Do you think that her Hijab had created her charm??
Think about it..
It is the humane nature and intuition rather than intellectual concepts
No harm to admit how wrong the current trends
The true harm is not to be your own self..

O’ Women..
Can you deny how attractive her looks are
No Need to hide your jealousy and confusion
She has no make-ups, no hair dye or nails fantasies

Who trades fashions wants you naked
Our Religion wants you pretty and graceful..

We are deceived by our fantasies..

Knowledge is the power we had abandoned for long..

Illiteracy is not only inability to read or write,

but to properly know..

or adequately think..

Media only utilizes our own paralysis..!!

    هناك مسائل متفق عليها ومسائل مختلف فيها، ومن المتفق عليها أنه عندما بلغت السائلة مبلغ النساء ينبغي عليها أن ترتدي الحجاب أمام زوج عمتها وزوج خالتها، هم ربوها، ولكن هذا هو الشرع وهذه هي أوامر الله وهذه عبادة وتعبد أمرنا رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم بها :عن عائشة رضي الله عنها : “أن أسماء بنت أبي بكر رضي الله عنها دخلت على رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم ، وعليها ثياب رقاق فأعرض عنها وقال : يا أسماء إن المرأة إذا بلغت المحيض لم يصلح أن يرى منها إلا هذا وهذا وأشار إلى وجهه وكفيه ” … أمرنا الله سبحانه وتعالى: {يَا أَيُّهَا النَّبِيُّ قُلْ لِأَزْوَاجِكَ وَبَنَاتِكَ وَنِسَاءِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ يُدْنِينَ عَلَيْهِنَّ مِنْ جَلَابِيبِهِنَّ ذَلِكَ أَدْنَى أَنْ يُعْرَفْنَ فَلَا يُؤْذَيْنَ وَكَانَ اللَّهُ غَفُورًا رَحِيمًا} إذن ينبغي علينا أن نقف عند حدود الله، عند أوامر الله ونواهيه.

    لو كان فيها خلاف كنا أبحنا مثلما أبحنا في قضية السلام، وقلنا هذا نوع من أنواع الود، هذا نوع من أنواع تكبير الكبير، هذا نوع من أنواع إحترام العشرة وكلها أشياء ندعوا إليها، لكن هذا زوج العمة وزوج الخالة والأم ينبغي عليهم أن يعلموا أنهم تحت سلطان الله، وأنه مادمت المسألة مجمع عليها لابد علينا جميعاً أن نتخذها جميعاً بلا خلاف وبلا حزازية، بل نعد هذا لو أن زوج العمة ـ كجزء من التربية ـ وزوج الخالة ـ كجزء من التربية ـ إذا خرجت لهم بدون حجاب هم من يعترضوا و يسألوها ما هذا؟! لم لا ترتدين الحجاب؟! لم تخرجين أمامنا بدون حجاب؟! … تعويداً لها على أنها يحميها، تعويداً لها على الإمتثال لأوامر الله سبحانه وتعالى، تعويداً لها على أن الأمر ليس مرده إلى أني ربيت أم لم أربي بل الأمر هو ما أمر به الله وكلف به عباده، فإذن ينبغي على الأم أن تدرك هذا، القضية ليست قضية أعراف وتقاليد إنما القضية قضية أوامر ونواهي.

    ونحن في المساحة المجمع عليها لا نستطيع أن نفعل شيئاً وإلا فإننا نكون نتكلم ونهرف بما لا نعرف ونتكلم بما لا يرضي الله، فهل هذا سيغير من الواقع شيئاً من أن الله أمر بهذا {وَلْيَضْرِبْنَ بِخُمُرِهِنَّ عَلَى جُيُوبِهِنَّ وَلَا يُبْدِينَ زِينَتَهُنَّ إِلَّا لِبُعُولَتِهِنَّ } ، فليس منهم زوج الخالة وزوج العمة، إذن فعلينا بالإلتزام بكتاب الله والسنة، طريقنا إلى الله مقيد بالكتاب والسنة، ما كان محل إتفاق أخذناه، وما كان محل إختلاف فينبغي لنا أن نخرج من الخلاف، فالخروج من الخلاف مستحب، الأمر المتفق عليه هو واجب و الأمر المختلف فيه إذا ابتُلينا بشيء من هذا جاز لنا أن نقلد من أجاز.

  2. What if I Take off My Hijab?
