    No judgment here. Why do woman get to wear different types of Burkas? Total face hidden?

    I just saw the most beautiful woman. Half my age. She was stunningly beautiful. She had a Birka on that revealed her entire face. Right there with her was an older gal by her body movement. She had on a fully covering Burka with veil over eyes. Does the Koran make exceptions and degree concepts.
    Though I long gave up any idea of another woman in my life -- I know darn well when just a face can inspire lust.  Someone please explain for me.

    I can think of a couple of possibilities that are probably valid, but someone with more knowledge of the facts will have to answer for sure.  However, a question came to mind as I read your question.  Get to wear different types of burkas? Get to? My mind can't wrap around it. I mean, those who have to get in a bit of trouble if they don't so "get to" isn't comprehendible, though I do understand the words in the question.

      Very well pointed out. "The prisoner get's to spend some time in the yard". "The cancer chemo patient gets to live another day". Yes that is interesting that I used the concept. Maybe it is the notion that I put myself in their shoes for a moment.

      Beyond that issue, the remainder of the question is why the radical men in the religion justify their position where women are concerned. Comments like these serve to make them more rabid. They know men's thinking well, but the women suffer for it.

      Is Roberta correct? Anyway you really bring up good points -- I don't care as much about my conclusion, I am not vested in it, but I really like good folks like you adding to my way of looking at the issue.

    Your question grabbed my curiosity. What an interesting journey reading. I notice on the news they do not cover their faces while many wear western clothes. But, usually they are younger. With your case its seems to come down to the older woman is more traditional.

    But, the reading I did said it varies by Muslim sect, cultures, and laws of nations. There are seven different styles of dress for Muslim women. The younger woman might have been wearing hijab? That basically is a head scarf. A burka is a strict tradition covering the body, face, and has a veil or screen covering the eyes.

      This is a great answer. Yes I think you are right it was a Hijab. What an interesting tradition which seems to be rather many traditions.
      I will spend some time today on this.

      Variences, yes, but a burka as tradition is a stretch on truth. It is suppression. The burka is a mandate rooted in an attitude toward women and girls that results in many harms to them. Many have been killed for not wearing them.

      Strange as it may seem I get that in a fundamentalist moral compass of a faith. What I do not get is that it is believed to be strict law by some and not by others. This means that the Koran is open to individual interpretations. Sharia Law?

    That's a very nice question!
    I think that the primary reason for the hijab covering is to promote modesty. When a woman doesn't wear a covering, she may receive unnecessary attention from other people. For example, a woman may receive flattering words or admirable glances.

      Lucy, that was my thought line. I understood that the total covering was for just this reason. I suppose I kind of was thinking that I was wrong. Vietnamese have opposite tradition as to why they cover their bodies completely except the face.

    Islam says women must cover up, and the Muslim men enforce it by sexually harassing if not outright assaulting the women who don't cover up. They blame the victims for being exposed.
    Women may choose to cover up MORE as virtue signalling, such as covering her face in Saudi Arabia where the face can be shown (but not much else).

      Tamara I get it when the male dominated society deems it a capital offense to show any face. That at least is logically consistent with a horrible translation of their holy book. But changing countries should not change faith or belief.

      Fundamentalist Islam needs to change, because they don't just do this in their nations but the West, too.
