Ramadan 2008 (The Blessed Month)


Protection of Hijab

The reason why Hijab is prescribed for women is mentioned in the Qur’an in the following verses of Surah Al-Ahzab:

O Prophet! Tell to your wives, and daughters and Muslim women, that they should keep putting a part of their wrapping covers over their faces. This is nearer than this that if they are recognized, they should not be annoyed. And Allah is Forgiving, Merciful. (Sooral Al-Azhab 33:59)

The Qur’an says that Hijab has been prescribed for the women so that they are recognized as modest women and this will also prevent them from being molested.

Twin Sisters

Suppose two sisters who are twins, and who are equally beautiful, walk down the street. One of them is wearing the Islamic hijab i.e. the complete body is covered, except for the face and the hands up to the wrists.

The other sister is wearing western clothes, a mini skirt or shorts. Just around the corner there are a group of youths upto no good. Who will attract their attention?

The girl wearing the Islamic Hijab or the girl wearing the mini skirt?

Naturally they will try to flirt with the girl wearing the mini skirt. Such dresses are an indirect invitation to the opposite sex for teasing and molestation.

The Qur’an rightly says that hijab prevents women from being molested.

Western Freedom of Women

Western talk of women liberalization is nothing but a disguised form of exploitation of her body, degradation of her soul, and deprivation of her honour. Western society claims to have ‘'uplifted’' women.

On the contrary it has actually degraded them to the status of a woman who cohabits with a man without being legally married to him, mistresses and society butterflies who are mere tools in the hands of pleasure seekers and sex marketers, hidden behind the colourful screen of ‘'art’' and ‘'culture’'.

Capital Punishment for Rapists

Under the Islamic Shariah, a man convicted of having raped a woman, is given capital punishment. Many are astonished at this harsh sentence. Some even say that Islam is a ruthless, barbaric religion!

A simple question to hundreds of non-Muslim men. Suppose, God forbid, someone rapes your wife, your mother or your sister. You are made the judge and the rapist is brought in front of you. What punishment would you give him?

All of them said they would put him to death. Some went to the extent of saying they would torture him to death. To them I ask, if someone rapes your wife or your mother you want to put him to death. But if the same crime is committed on somebody else’s wife or daughter you say capital punishment is barbaric. Why should there be double standards?

United States of America is supposed to be one of the most advanced countries of the world. It also has one of the highest rates of rape in any country in the world. According to a FBI report, in the year 1990, every day on an average 1756 cases of rape were committed in U.S.A alone.

Later another report said that on an average everyday 1900 cases of rapes are committed in USA. Consider a scenario where the Islamic hijab is followed in America.

Whenever a man looks at a woman and any brazen or unashamed thought comes to his mind, he lowers his gaze. Every woman wears the Islamic hijab, After this if any man commits rape he is given capital punishment. What do you think?, will the rate of rape in America increase, will it remain the same, or will it decrease?

Naturally as soon as Islamic Shariah is implemented positive results will be inevitable. If Islamic Shariah is implemented in any part of the world, whether it is America or Europe, society will breathe easier. Hijab uplifts a woman and protects her modesty and chastity.
