Bhat Aamir

@Ghulam Kundanam.........Nowadays, the general perspective of the common folk, with regards to the Hijab, is a totally unguided, misleading vision of an oppressive degradation of women, where individuals are forced to cover themse...lves and reduced to nothingness in society.

This idea is based on misconceptions which in effect hides and distorts the truth behind the veil!

The first thing we must understand is the concept of Hijab. The literal meaning of the word Hijab is to veil, partition or place a barrier between something. This does not solely refer to clothing and does not exclusively address women.

In Surah Nur of the Holy Qur’an, the command for Hijab is first directed toward the men then to the women. Allah (SW) says:

“Say (O Muhammad) to the believing men: lower your gaze and protect your modesty that is more pure for you…
And Say (O Muhammad) to the believing women: lower your gaze and protect your modesty and do not openly reveal your beauty (apart from to your mahrams)…”

In the context of the above verses, the Hijab initially starts with the lowering of the gaze. Muslim men and women are commanded to lower their gaze and not to look at the opposite gender. This reduces the possibility of any bad thoughts towards an individual which is a sin and the first step towards bigger sins. In this case, there is no physical barrier but a mental or invisible veil created by lowering the gaze.

The next part of the verse commands the Muslims to protect their modesty. This includes dressing in accordance to the Islamic dress code and refraining from all forms of lewd behaviour. This keeps the mind, body and soul free from sinful behaviour and promotes internal harmony as well as a healthy atmosphere of respect and cohesion in society.

The Islamic dress code consists of wearing clothing which fits the following criteria.

Extent: The minimum extent for men is from the naval to knees. For women, the compulsory amount covers the whole body excludes the hands, feet and face. Many Scholars consider the veiling of the face to be necessary because the above Qur’an verse states ‘Do not openly reveal your beauty’ and most of the beauty of a woman lies in the face.

Revealing: The clothes should not be transparent or tight which reveals the shape of the body. This is the case for both genders.

Dress type: The clothes should not be of the opposite gender. This means that men should not wear clothes that resemble women’s clothes and vice versa. The clothes (inc. jewellery) should not resemble those of other religions (e.g. wearing a cross).

Glamorous: The clothes should not be so glamorous or extravagant that they attract the opposite gender.

The criteria of the Hijab are such that it protects a woman from negative elements in society whilst promoting a healthy respect from all areas of society. This modesty, piety and morality are prevalent in society where Muslim men and women are allowed to wear the Hijab and to follow their way of life.

The myth of the Hijab being a tool of oppression was recently challenged when women of all ages and backgrounds began adopting the Hajib and defending their right to wear the Hijab. This was in the face of criticism by many political figures in discrediting the Hijab but it illustrated that far from being a tool of oppression it is a tool of liberation.

Ghulam Kundanam My dear Brother Aamir,
The blood group of all human of all caste & community are same, the shape like two hands, two legs, two eye ….. are same in all caste & communities, The born and death methods are same of all caste & communities. It i...s clear that the maker of human of all caste & communities is definitely same and one. i.e. GOD, Allah, Ram, Krishna, Budha, Mahabir etc are same and come to earth in different place of world in different time. Then why we are making differences among human being? Omit all caste and merge in one caste "Inshan" and all communities in one religion "Inshaniyat" which includes "Sachai" & "Raham", The main work of Allah.

I am agreeing with your statement like-

Revealing: The clothes should not be transparent or tight which reveals the shape of the body. This is the case for both genders.

However, our leaders are wearing tight suites, coat, tie etc that shows body shape. Why we not ask the question like women? Men are avoiding the Islamic rule then why we band on women.

I have wrote that the Anchal, Duppatta, Orhani are traditional of our culture. I do not like short and such clothes that not cover many body parts. The clothes are related to the culture and used to save body from nature. The relation of clothes with religions is not required. Only "Sachai" and "Raham" is religion and work of Allah. Allah expect from us to spread "Sachai" and "Raham" in the world. Other things are related to the society structure at their times. Any religious book like Quran, Ramayana, Mahabharta, Bible etc includes thoughts and cultures of that time when the writer wrote it. We are forcing women to wear "Ghunghat", "Nakab", "Hijab" then we are avoiding the main work of Allah-Ishwar "Raham" or "Daya" which is wrong.

Many women in world are sex worker also; many men are in wrong relationship, what is the use of Nakab, hijab and covered dress for such men or women. The sexual relation from other than husband or wife is wrong; it is established in all religions. Women are always beautiful, it not their demerit which is required to hide their face also which is cause of suffocations. It cannot be said that those women whose face is open are corrupt and those face is hidden is good moral lady. The morality is stay in mind, heart and soul. We have responsibility to free our Muslim sisters from Nakab & Hijab and Hindu sisters from "Ghunghat" to unhide their face. They fill uneasy and suffocation to cover their face. In the summer, it is like punishment due to there beauty or ugly face.

Please change your thought according to the morality, progressive society, equality and humanity (Inshaniyat).
