Hijab - protects me from thee

Updated on March 22, 2013

 i wanted to share this beautiful verse............

 

You look at me and call me oppressed,
Simply because of the way I’m dressed,
You know me not for what’s inside,
You judge the clothing I wear with pride,
My body’s not for your eyes to hold,
You must speak to my mind, not my feminine mold,
I’m an individual, I’m no mans slave,
It’s Allahs pleasure that I only crave,
I have a voice so I will be heard,
For in my heart I carry His word,
” O ye women, wrap close your cloak,
So you won’t be bothered by ignorant folk”,
Man doesn’t tell me to dress this way,
It’s a Law from God that I obey,
Oppressed is something I’m truly NOT,
For liberation is what I’ve got,
It was given to me many years ago,
With the right to prosper, the right to grow,
I can climb moutains or cross the seas,
Expand my mind in all degrees,
For God Himself gave us LIB-ER-TY,
When He sent Islam,
To You and Me!

      i can see why you think that way with all that is said by the media about us muslimah, but i am one of an enourmous number of muslim women that wear our hijab as a mark of love for ALLAH. You see for a muslim woman the fact that her husband may or may not want her to cover is not the important factor, the importance comes from our faith... it is the will of Allah that we cover our head, we do not have to cover the whole face, but the head and shoulders, it is a command from God ... to be honest i wouldnt go out of my house if i had to leave without it and thats the truth, ask any muslim woman.

      The media have portrayed us as poor subordinate women that have no say in their daily life... let me clear that up... ask any muslim man what standing women have in Islam and they will tell you they are honoured in actual fact a muslim man must show the utmost respect to all muslimah whether they are his kin or not, in our marriage there has to be equal respect, a woman has the right to divorce, to work, to be educated to own property we have the same rights as a man in islam.We even have a marital contract with which we can stipulate certain things we want within the marriage.

      It is atrocious the way some of our sisters are treated, so badly and forced to do many things... but i can assure you that is because of cultural influences rather than islamic rules ... no where does it say in the qu'ran to oppress women in actual fact the exact opposite is written

      Yes there are so atrocities happening,but this happens all through the world not just because of islam.

      the majority of muslim women cover with hijab through choice because of our faith not because we are oppressed.

      We are not depressed about the way we dress, in fact i would hate not to be able to wear my Abaya. why should anyone see my body if i do not wish them to.

      Islam respects me as an equal to men, it honors and protects me.

      I wish the same happiness that i and the hundreds of sisters that live in my area have for all our sisters in Islam.

      Men and women should be treated equal. To be honest I think it looks pretty sad and depressing how muslim women are dressed and treated... I'm not saying that the western world is that much better better... but women should fight for their freedom. Peace.
