The Beauty of Woman

Updated on September 22, 2017

Beautiful Face Under Niqaf

Are Women Is Symbol of Evil?

Assalammu Alaikum. Wr. Wb.

Please, take a look at the picture above. Masya Allah! those are only eyes, but even so, we can see the beauty in theirs and make us wonder how wonderful the creation of Allah that lies in all of their faces under those niqabs.

This is a response to the Post that made by another fellow blogger about Woman. I want to remind every Brother and Sister in Islam that beauty should not be exposed in unappropriated ways because it doesn't need too many "tools" just to make people see what beauty is. And even all you want to do is only to make a point on your post, please don't put a shame on yourself by showing the world your personal view on women.

"And mix no truth with falsehood, nor conceal the truth while you know." QS 01:42.

I know out there many women abandon their duty as women and sold themselves to this materialistic world, where you can easily found them with all of their aurat exposed to the world. It is wrong, and surely they will get their own punishment. But please, let them be! Because they are already old enough to understand what is good and what is not. And you should not use their wrong behavior for your own benefit.

As a symbol of beauty, in many stories of the world, Woman become the reason of the fallen of Man and the greatest Empire ever. Started from Eve (Hawa), Helen of Troy and Cleopatra, the list can go on so long and still going. Why did it happen? Is it true what people said that Women is the symbol of evil?

Let's see this first:

"Oh Mankind, be dutiful to Allah, who created you from the single person, and from him He created his wife...." QS 04:1.

"It is He who created you from single person (Adam) and then He was created from him, his wife (Eve)...." QS 07:189.

Al Qur'an had stated that Woman has been created from Man as her essence. Why?

Some thought to ponder

Beauty should not be exposed using inappropriate ways because it doesn’t need too many “tools” just to show people what beauty is.

But when you see one of the women showing her “tools” to the world, you should not mock her by exposing her pictures everywhere. If you used an inappropriate picture of a woman in your blog to sell your article, what the difference it makes between you and those men who used woman as their property to show and sell then?

"And among His signs it this, that His created for you wives from among yourselves, that you might find repose in them, and He was put between you affection and mercy. Verily, in that are indeed signs for people who reflect."
QS 30:21.

is it have clearly answered, right? Woman had been made from the part of her husband, for her to become everything that he desires the most. So they can live together in love and become the great Oase for each other's tired minds.

"Men are the protectors and maintainers of women, because Allah has made one of them to excels the other,and because they spend (to support them) from their means....." QS 04:34.

Man, it is your duty to protect Woman. But how can you protecting us, when you keep humiliating us by throwing our sister's bad behavior to our faces and told us to answer your question about why these behaviors happened. It is not our fault if some of us doing the sinful deed. It is their (Women) choice and their protectors own responsibility. So please, do not ask a question that was not our duty to answers. But maybe, if you want to know why Women keep become the symbol of fallen of Man, let's read what Allah told us all:

"Allah Wishes to lighten (the burden) for you; and Man was created weak (cannot be patient to leave sexual intercourse with Woman)" QS 04:28.

If you want to be honest, it is the reason why many of our sisters become wrong-doer. Or why Devil used woman form to seduce man. And why the most beautiful and humble Woman like Helen become the reason of the fallen of Troy. Because apparently, Man is weak in the name of sex, and Woman naturally is the greatest object of sex and desire for Man.

Our beauty that comes from your essence make us become hard to resist and then caused you making many mistakes as the result of your effort to reach us. Then some of you, driven by greed, seen this as a chance to get a benefit, by selling Women's beauty in disgusting ways, when they were supposed to be protecting them.

Now, do you still thinking that Woman is the symbol of chaos when you know (as Man) it is your own weaknesses that make you become so easy to be lure by Woman's form?

"And Wish not for the things in which Allah has made some of you to excels others. For Man there is reward for what they have earned, and (likewise) for woman there is reward for what they have earned, and ask Allah of his bounty. Surely Allah is all-knower of everything." QS 04:32.

Dear Brothers, as men, you should become Women's protector, not number one hater and punisher. I don't ask much. I want you to see sin as the burden and responsibility of the wrong-doers themselves, and not Women in general. This way, we don't have to see a few Men's Sins as Men's sins in general. Each of us only needs to take responsibility for our own behaviors and acts because we are a person. And not because as Man and Woman, we are a different kind of Human.

Come to us as our Husband, if you need a peaceful life and seek the love and tranquility like Allah had promised us. But don't ever come to us in your dirty desire and greed because it will become the reason of your fall. Then once again another Man will shout out loud His accuse that, 'This Man fall because of Woman.'

I hope Allah forgive you, for what you can't hold in your thoughts & words, everytime you see Woman.

Wassalamu Alaikum, Wr. Wb.

    The women in the photos do appear to be very beautiful. However, they are covered with alot of make-up so their real beauty is distorted. They look like glamour models from new york city not Muslim women. I agree with the post that a husband is a protector and provider and that it is fine for a women to adorn her self for her husband. The beauty of a women should be given to her husband not to other men.

    Alhamdullilah. that is quite honour for me for able inspiring someone like this. Thank you, sis. you make me blushing now.

    Yes, sometimes I experiencing similar problem, having too many thought but not able to write it down because lack of patient or simply lack of words. The worst of it is when I ended feel bored of tried write it down and let the thought passed by undocumented. Awful.

    I supposed, just like any other creative work, writing need more than just technique; it need ability to focus on one thing and bear it until the end, which I lack. So, don't worry, sis. you are not alone in this.

    Keep writing. Keep trying unless. technique will easily being polished by time, and you will be fine.

    niteen123, I like your thought either and yes, if your read another hub of mine, you will see several hub which I written for all people of all religion. I tried my best to do that and will try again. Too bad I really lack of time at this moment to be able to write more.

    The reason why this one dedicated for Muslim because it is written as the answer for one particular post written by Muslim male which dare to scolding all women for several women behaviour. I hope by reading this, many men understand to be more careful on how they think about another sex and then treat them inhuman base only on their own assumption. Man and woman,it is not their sex which make them become awful person, but simply their rusting heart and corrupting mind.

    have a nice day there and thank you for reading this.

    MShadiqM. Salam. I'm really sorry for the late reply.

    That is interesting question you have there and no, I don't think this way.

    In this post I showed man the wrongness in his behaviour. But I will never hesitated to showed woman the wrongness in her behaviour if I caught one. Because I respect both man and woman as my brothers and sisters and fellow Muslim.

    Man and Woman is equal in the sight of Allah as human being. None of one is lower than the other. But as all ship need captain or Country need president, every house need a leader so Allah put man become woman's protector in the house by gave them different roles and duty according to these roles, so there is no fighting over who will leading who.

    Each roles have it's own benefit along with it's own responsibility. Some of these benefit might deluded several people and some of these responsibility might lead several people to came out with different assumption about the origin of it, and this is how some people bent their own step to the wrong path.

    Man and woman have different ability in facing problems in their life. Woman more intuitive and emotional, while man is more logic and using their sense as their best tools to processing everything they see.

    This tendencies are needed for each one of sex to be able to fulfil their special responsibility, not because one is weaker than the other.

    The differentiation also important so they can completed each other in their journey through this life. again, not to make one become weaker than the other.

    If one have right as the protector, then the other have right as to be spoiled under protection, not to be bully like many people think it should be.

    If one have responsibility to follow then the other have responsibility to provide, not to treat the follower as worthless creature bellow him because the only reason there is woman under his protection is because Allah grant her to him to be cherish and love for the rest of her life by him.

    Together, they should become perfect harmony. alone, they will lack something. And this is why I believe no man better than woman like no woman better than man.

    Both have capability to be great as much as they also have ability to destroying their own goodness.

    Yes, man and woman have different display of wrongness but again it simply because they have different obligation and right. It doesn't mean the one is better than the other.It is simply because they are human being.

    I hope this answering your question.

    Thank you, brother.

    Ahorseback: I am one of old fashioned woman too!Hehehe

    And yes, decent man is all Muslim woman wants to have. Man who know how to appreciate woman as human and loveable companion in life, not only the tools to his pleasure.

    Many muslim woman covering their face so man can stop to think about the exquisite lips she has and how good it is to kiss it; so he can start to considering her thought more. Muslim woman wear loose garment so man can wipe the image of her alluring body under her garment and start to think using his brain. This is as simply as this; the reason behind Muslim woman's cover. Other than that, Muslim woman just like any other woman; simply irresistible! LOL.

    Too bad, in the world today it seem, muslim or not muslim, decent man is rare. Very very rare!

    Thank you, Sir, for reading this. I hope this hub can make non muslim understand a little bit about the world behind Muslima covers. ^^ Hug back, for my poetic father.

    MdShafiqM: Alhamdullilah, if I really able to do my role as Muslimah perfectly in this world, that will be my bless. Truly blessing, alhamdulilah.

    Yes, I do believe the important of education and knowledge for woman, because as simple as it seem for woman living inside Man's protective and caring hands,in fact it never simple or easy at all.

    Woman have so much responsibility as a wife and mother, which is to make sure Muslim new generation inside her house will grow into great muslim, mostly in this chaotic world. Also to make sure she will always able to honor herself and Her God's order, by doing every single things inside her house with dignity and honesty, and also always pushing her husband to become wonderful Muslim and greatest husband himself.

    Both woman and man, they have different role inside the family, but the obligation remain the same, which is to submit to Allah and stick with His teaching, no matter what. Woman have to be wise to be understand their role and the real meaning of being free or oppress, mostly in the world where human logic seem always have reverse definition about everything with Islam.

    Thank you, Sir, for your kind words. Alhamdullilah. ^^

    Mashallah.This is indeed a one complete article about woman and her relation with the man; and how does ALLAH swt views both man and woman.The fact woman is blessed by her creator if she remains moderate in relation with her attire. Unfortunately today's woman has abandoned this and has chosen to dress what is inappropriate in ALLAH'S sight.

    Your article is eye opener to lots of women out there sister.GOD bless you.

    Freya Cesare 7 years ago from Borneo Island, Indonesia

    OHHHHH .... MY EYEBROWS

    Can we pluck? Can we tidy? Lets have a look at what our learned brothers have to say on the matter.

    May Allah bless, forgive, and guide us all.

    Most authorities agree that it is haram to remove hair from the eyebrows. Some say that it is halal to remove hair between the eyebrows, which is not the same as changing the eyebrows themselves. There is also an opinion that coloring the hair to match the skin (maybe like bleaching it?) is halal.

    Praise be to Allaah.

    Firstly:

    It says in Fataawa al-Lajnah al-Daa'imah (17/133): “It is not permissible to remove the hair of the eyebrows because this is the namas (plucking) for which the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) cursed those who do it, and it is a kind of changing the creation of Allaah, which is the action of the Shaytaan. If a woman's husband tells her to do it, she should not obey him, because it is a sin, and there is no obedience to any created being if it involves disobedience towards the Creator. Rather obedience should only be with regard to things that are good and proper, as the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said.”

    Secondly:

    It is permissible to remove any hair from the face apart from the hair of the eyebrows.

    It says in Fataawa al-Lajnah al-Daa'imah (17/130): “The evidence that it is permissible for a woman to remove hair from her body is the basic principle which states that it required for her to adorn herself for her husband. There is no evidence to suggest that this is not allowed, apart from the prohibition on al-namas (plucking), which means removing hair from the eyebrows.”

    And it also says (5/197): “What is the Islamic ruling on removing hair that grows between the eyebrows? The Committee replied: It is permissible to pluck it, because it is not part of the eyebrows.”

    And Allaah knows best.

    What is the hair that it is permissible to remove and the hair that it is not permissible to remove?

    Praise be to Allaah.

    Firstly:

    With regard to removing hair or not removing it, the scholars divide hair into three categories:

    1 – Hair which we are commanded to remove or shorten. This is known as Sunan al-Fitrah, such as removing the pubic hairs, trimming the moustache and plucking the armpit hairs. That also includes shaving or cutting the hair of the head during Hajj or ‘Umrah.

    The evidence for that is the hadeeth of ‘Aa'ishah (may Allaah be pleased with her) who said: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Ten (actions) are part of the fitrah [natural inclinations of man]: trimming the moustache, letting the beard grow, using the siwaak (tooth-stick), rinsing the nose with water, clipping the nails, washing the finger joints, plucking the armpit hairs, shaving the pubes and washing oneself with water after relieving oneself.”

    Zakariyya said: Mus'ab said: And I forgot the tenth but it may have been rinsing the mouth with water.

    Narrated by Muslim, 261

    2 – Hair which we are forbidden to remove, which includes the eyebrows. The action of removing the hair of the eyebrows is called al-namas. It is also forbidden to remove the hair of the beard.

    The evidence for that is the hadeeth of ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Mas'ood (may Allaah be pleased with him) who said: I heard the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) say: “Allaah has cursed the woman who does tattoos and the one who has them done, the woman who plucks eyebrows (al-naamisah) and the one who has it done (al-mutanammisah), and the one who files her teeth for the purpose of beauty, altering the creation of Allaah.”

    (Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 5931; Muslim, 2125)

    And it was narrated that ‘Abd-Allaah ibn ‘Umar said: I heard the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) say: “Be different from the mushrikeen: let your beards grow and trim your moustaches.”

    (Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 5892; Muslim, 259)

    al-Nawawi (may Allaah have mercy on him) said:

    The naamisah is the woman who removes hair from the face and the mutanammisah is the one who asks to have that done. This action is haraam, unless a woman develops a beard or moustache, in which case it is not haraam to remove it, rather that is mustahabb in our view.

    Sharh al-Nawawi li Saheeh Muslim, 14/106

    3 – Hair concerning which the texts are silent and do not say whether it is to be removed or left as it is, such as hair on the legs, hands, cheeks or forehead.

    There is some difference of scholarly opinion concerning this.

    Some said that it is not permissible to remove it, because removing it implies changing the creation of Allaah, as Allaah tells us that the Shaytaan said:

    “ ‘and indeed I will order them to change the nature created by Allaah'”[al-Nisa' 4:119 – interpretation of the meaning]

    Some said that this is one of the things concerning which nothing was said, so the ruling is that it is allowed. It is permissible to leave it or to remove it, because whatever is not mentioned in the Qur'aan or Sunnah is permissible.

    This was the view favoured by the scholars of the Standing Committee and by Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen. See Fataawa al-Mar'ah al-Muslimah, 3/879

    It says in Fataawa al-Lajnah al-Daa'imah:

    (a) There is no sin on a woman if she removes hair on her upper lip, thighs, calves and arms. This is not part of the tanammus (plucking) that is forbidden.

    (Fataawa al-Lajnah al-Daa'imah, 5/194, 195)

    (b) The Committee was asked:

    What is the Islamic ruling on plucking the hair between the eyebrows?

    They replied:

    It is permissible to pluck it, because it is not part of the eyebrows.

    (Fataawa al-Lajnah al-Daa'imah, 5/197)

    The Standing Committee was asked:

    What is the ruling on a woman removing hair from her body?

    They replied:

    It is permissible for her to do that, apart from the hair of the eyebrows and head. It is not permissible for her to remove the hair of her head or to remove any part of the eyebrows, whether by shaving or any other means.

    Fataawa al-Lajnah al-Daa'imah, 5/194

    We should comment on the questioner's words “I know that plucking the eyebrows is haraam and removing facial hair is also.”

    As for plucking the eyebrows, this is haraam and is a major sin, because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) cursed those who do it.

    But as for removing facial hair, there is a difference of opinion among the scholars as to whether it is permissible to remove it. This is based on their various understandings of the word al-namas.

    Some scholars said that al-namas means removing any facial hair, and they did not limit it to the eyebrows. Others were of the view that al-namas refers to removing the hair of the eyebrows only. This was the view favoured by the Standing Committee as is clear from the fatwas quoted above.

    It says in Fataawa al-Lajnah al-Daa'imah:

    Al-namas means plucking the hair of the eyebrows, which is not permissible because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) cursed the woman who plucks eyebrows (al-naamisah) and the one who has it done (al-mutanammisah).

    Fataawa al-Lajnah al-Daa'imah, 5/195

    And Allaah knows best.

    Allah wants us to look neat and tidy, and by trying to appear neat and tidy we are not distorting Allah's creation, rather we are only enhancing it. Therefore, if your eyebrows are unusually thick or unwieldy then you can straighten them out.

    Elaborating on this, we'd like to cite for you the following Fatwa issued by Sheikh Ahmad Kutty, a senior lecturer and Islamic scholar at the Islamic Institute of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, who states:

    “The word used in the Hadith is nams in Arabic, which means plucking the eyebrows. The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) considered plucking as distorting the creation of Allah. This was the practice resorted to by prostitutes in the time of pre-Islamic jahiliyya (ignorance) and it is still used by women of loose morals.

    However, scholars who have studied the issue in detail have concluded that if a person's eyebrows are unusually thick or unwieldy, then he or she can straighten them out. This is not considered nams or plucking. Allah wants us to look neat and tidy, and by trying to

    Ah, Nana, Please forgive me. I just realized I have unanswered comments in here.

    Ok, I try my best to answer you. :)

    Let's start with plucking eyebrow first. We are lucky I have this note written by fellow Hubber that I got from Facebook which consisted by great number of sources. So, I will copy it here for you.

    For my sister, Muslima61, thank you for provided me this article. Love you, Sis!

    A womans beauty is for her husband and her husband alone.

    It is good for a woman to be covered from head to toe.

    In addition it helps to quell the sin of lust that leads to a society of porn addicts and little girls who grow up to dress like harlots.

    Beautiful hub, What I take from it is that God (whichever one we believe in) Made us all, and we are all beautiful in his eyes so we should love and respect one another. And it is an important lesson, that women have a lot more to offer than their bodies and what they look like, All women (veiled or not, it doesn't matter) should be appreciated for who they are. Great Hub!

    Of course Mentalist Acer. I never said become unveiled make woman not noble, and by the way I don't wear veil.

    Wearing a veil is their choice, to submissive to Allah more than the other, and to live inside modesty. They are high morality person and definitely not dangerous so they should not become victims of suspicion because they chose to cover their face.

    Rookie, Beauty is beyond the skin. By wearing a veil, the woman want men see them as person, not as her face. Not everyone will understand, but unless the man who want to marry her will understand, and that is the perfect man for her.The man who see her beyond her veil.

    Don't you notice, sometimes, when beautiful woman appear so hot and sexy with minim outfit and thick cosmetic, they hiding something ugly inside? Not all of course, but several of them like that. Like buying a food from beautiful packaged but found that everything inside it already rotten, and become big dissappoinment.

    You don't like veil women it is ok. Don't look, don't commenting, it is not your business if they don't want you to see their face. If they look ugly to you, so let them be. They do not mind at all, trust me. :)

    The righteous secret of beauty is in its hidden characteristic.

    Else that enigmatic energy dissipates, becomes void, hollow, fictitious, non-existent, weightless, worthless, unimpressive, unbeneficial, unblessed, valueless, worthy only to be discarded, dumped, frowned, kept away or aside, as it starts breeding: evil no sooner, exposed, exhibited, .....

    They are very beautiful women, why do they have to cover themselves? Is it not an honor for a man to be married to someone who is beautiful, and someone he is proud to be around. A veil is to hide ugliness, and not beauty.

    Thank you. In my thought it is important to Muslim Men to stick on the Islamic way when they think about woman.

    Not allowed equal with you should not look either. But unfortunately, I did meet several Muslim Men who really love to enjoy porn or nudity but mocking women in general because small number of women making what they already enjoy to watch. It is hypocrisy. They should feel shame of themselves. Thanks for reading my Hub. :)
