    Posted: 10 July 2009 at 4:24am
A woman in Islam is either a mother, a wife, a sister and a daughter who has the right to take and duty to serve and never a mistress nor a harlot. A woman in Islam is the source of happiness to her husband, a tender loving mother to her children, a sweet and caring daughter and a chaste and modest sister.

Allah has bestowed us with the blessings of Islam and Belief together with their inclusive (latent) might and pride for the whole humanity generally, and the woman in particular. Islam has honored her so much. It has laid down the legitimate laws which protect her chastity and also secure for her the ways of self realization, dignity and the fulfillment of her rights. Such quality are so high and exalted that they cannot be reached to, and are so noble that they cannot be touched by the hands of the frivolous (wicked) or even viewed by the eyes of the licentious.

Hijab (veil) is the stronghold to each woman since it cautions her against harm and the influence of the one in whose heart is a disease. Hijab (veil) has been prescribed legitimately upon woman to block out the occurrence of the temptations, it raised the status of a woman to a higher rank of honor, chastity, purity and eminence of character. Hijab has been prescribed upon women by Allah which has been mentioned in the Quran.

“Oh Prophet! Tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to draw their cloaks all over their bodies. That will be better, that they should be known so as not to be annoyed.” Al-Ahzab:59

“And too draw their veils over their bossoms.” Quran 24:31

Wearing of Hijab (veil) is a sign of the completion of faith by a woman who wore it for the fear of Allah and seeking to please Allah but not as a customary and habitual matter. The woman who covers herself will be covered with chastity, modesty and purity and all of these qualities are the integrated part of faith. Hijab (veil) is a crown over every pious Muslim woman who has a common sense for what benefits her, what harms her and what hurts her dignity and feelings. Such a conservative woman will be like twinkling pearls preserved away from the hands of the wicked and curious persons and lips of those who play upon the woman and her rights.

Be careful my sisters in Islam, not to allow yourself involved in any attempt to imitate the unbelieving women, either in their modes of fashion or making a public display of their beauty and finery..beware of not going to the footsteps of satan.

“And whoever contradicts and opposes the Prophet (pbuh) after the right path has been shown clearly to him, and follows other than the believers way. We shall keep him in hell – what an evil destination.” Quran 4:115
