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
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
“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.”
