The Western media portrays Muslim women wearing a hijab as weak, with scared eyes. Always the black hijab, eyes pleading for help from the western readers. Never once have I've seen a picture in a newspaper of a smiling Muslim woman wearing a colorful hijab. Head-coverings have been worn throughout history by billions of women around the world including Europe.
I had many more images to post in here but I just ran out of space for imagery and need to go clean house for now. But please enjoy this article.
They are beautiful, some are simply stunning. No one ever seems to note that the headgear of nuns such as Mother Theresa is a form of hijab!Western people seem to see this necessary article of clothing as being dowdy, ugly, repressive. They see the entire issue of the headscarf as ugly, frightening, different. Yet in the Medieval period, as shown above, women veiled and covered their hair in Europe for at least one thousand years.
“If a Jew lady lacks in following the rules like for example she would go without covering her head in street or in front of other men, or even her voice get heard by other men or neighbours. In this case her husband has the right to divorce her without giving her dowry.” ~ Will Durant
I maintain this modern fuss over the right of a Muslim woman to wear her scarf is an issue of racial and religious prejudice, perpetrated by TPT who are intent on rousing the hatred of people for each other, villianizing the Muslims, for their own disgraceful causes, mainly fueling of emotions to bring about international war or, as many refer to it as, the Apocalypse.
There are countries in which women are terribly abused by the males of that land. This is cultural, not Islamic. It is wrong by any standards and most Muslims from other lands are as dismayed by these events as are all other decent human beings. In fact, despite being Muslim and modestly dressed, were they to dress as they do in those nations, chances are they, too, would be punished or killed for not being "sufficiently Muslim".
As seen in the images below, Muslim women are not the victims of the scarf and most love it. It represents modesty, a beneficial trait which the pornographers of the planet cannot handle. When destroying society the woman, the base of it all, is first targeted. THAT, friends and neighbours, is why the hajib is so challenged in the Zionist run world of today.
Finding the middle ground in everything we do is what being a Muslim is all about. Having the right balance between the material and spiritual, is what is demanded of us. Muslim women are guided to dress modestly, and the hijab not the burkha ~ which is a cultural item ~ is the answer to this.
Many western women who revert to Islam always ~ and always choose of their own volition to wear the hijab/niqab. Most westerners, quite ignorant in the truth of the matter, would not hesitate to damn the hijab in equal measure and lump it together with the 'demeaning' burkha, unable to see what the Muslim women's dress code actually symbolizes.
Be prepared to see, not the sad and miserable women of the middle east as portrayed in the Media but women who appear whole, vibrant and exhibiting genuine smiles of happiness.
Might I also add, the head covering makes for much more luxuriant and healthy hair! I found mine grew longer before breaking up and splitting and was thick and just wonderful.
Covering the face with niqab or burqa, as it is practiced in some Islamic countries, is cultural rather than religious ~ the law of man, not the law of Allah..In truth millions of women around the world cover up
and there are as many styles as there are women.What is Hijab? It means that the woman should cover all of her body down to her wrists and ankles and wear opaque loose-fitting clothing. She is also admonished to cover her hair. Hijab is not only a way of dressing but it is also a way conducting oneself.in a modest and dignified manner.The wearing of Hijab is a means by which a Muslimah is identified. It sets us apart, and any Muslim man who sees a woman wearing Hijab should immediately understand that this is a woman who should be treated with the utmost respect.
Now, you the reader, may ask why should it make any difference what a woman wears? Unfortunately, in the society of man, it does.
Let me present you with an example of what I mean.
A pretty woman is walking down the street. She is wearing an outfit that brings attention to the fact that she is attractive. It may be a short skirt or a form fitting suit.
The typical male reaction would be whistles, catcalls or leering looks etc. For a time, this may make the woman feel special, but after awhile it becomes an annoyance because she is being looked at as an object not a person.Now, let us consider the same situation but the pretty woman is now wearing conservative clothing and she covers her hair with a scarf. What would be the male response now?As much as we would like to think that we live in a society where everyone is equal, this is not the case. Men as a rule will continue to think of women as objects of desire, servants, or baby factories.
In Islam, this is not the case as set down in the Qur'an. The wearing of Hijab is Allah's way of reminding men that women are people and should be treated accordingly. as hearth of the home and co-creator of life. An unfortunate circumstance but very much a fact of life.
This photograph from Kuwait is not, as some have suggested, a "clash of civilizations". These two women could purchase these outfits for private use. What they wear beneath their abaya or their burqa does not matter because the fabric of the cover serves as protection from strangers. The abaya is a continuation of the walls around her home in terms of safety.
On my wall, I have a picture of a Muslim woman shrouded in a burka.
Beside it is a picture of an American beauty contestant, wearing nothing but a bikini. One woman is totally hidden from the public; the other is totally exposed. These two extremes say a great deal about the clash of so-called "civilizations." The role of woman is at the heart of any culture. Apart from stealing Arab oil, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are about stripping Muslims of their religion and culture, exchanging the burka for a bikini. Breaking up the family unit as they have so successfully managed to accomplish in Europe and North America is an important part of bringing the civilization under Communist rule in which the State is parent to the child.I am not an expert on the condition of Muslim women and I love feminine beauty too much to advocate the burka here. But I am defending some of the values that the burka and modesty covering such as the hajib represent for me.To me, these coverings represent a woman's consecration to her husband and family. Only they see her. It affirms the privacy, exclusivity and importance of the domestic sphere. The Muslim woman's focus is her home, the "nest" where her children are born and reared. She is the "home" maker, the taproot that sustains the spiritual life of the family, nurturing and training her children, providing refuge and support to her husband. In contrast, the almost naked Western beauty queen struts in front of millions on TV.
A feminist, she belongs to herself. In practice, paradoxically, she is public property. She belongs to no one and everyone. She shops her body to the highest bidder. She is auctioning herself all of the time.n America, the cultural measure of a woman's value is her sex appeal. (As this asset depreciates quickly, she is neurotically obsessed with appearance and plagued by weight problems.) As an adolescent, her role model is Britney Spears, a singer whose act approximates a strip tease.
From Britney, a child learns that she will be loved only if she gives sex. Thus, she learns to "hook up" furtively rather than to demand patient courtship, love and marriage. As a result, dozens of males know her before her husband does. She loses her innocence, which is a part of her charm. She becomes hardened and calculating.
The feminine personality is founded on the emotional relationship between mother and baby. It is based on nurturing and self-sacrifice. Masculine nature is founded on the relationship between hunter and prey. It is based on aggression and reason. Feminism deceives women to believe femininity has resulted in "oppression" and they should adopt male behavior instead. The result: a confused and aggressive woman with a large chip on her shoulder, unfit to become a wife or mother.This is the goal of the NWO social engineers: undermine sexual identity and destroy the family, create social and personal dysfunction, and reduce population. In the "brave new world," women are not supposed to be mothers and progenitors of the race. They are meant to be neutered, autonomous sex objects.Liberating women is often given as an excuse for the war in Afghanistan. Liberating them to what? To be Britney Spears? To low-rise "see-my-thong" pants? To the mutual masturbation that passes for sexuality in America? If they really cared about women, maybe they'd end the war. But then, any excuse for aggression to steal from indigenous people whatever they wish, in this case the products of the poppy and a vital oil pipeline to the ocean. We all know the liberation of women means nothing, or less than nothing, to these individuals.
Parenthood is the pinnacle of human development. It is the stage when we finally graduate from self-indulgence and become God's surrogates: creating and nurturing new life.
The New World Order does not want us to reach this level of maturity. Pornography is the substitute for marriage. We are to remain single: stunted, sex-starved and self-obsessed.Women will give birth and within a very short time the care and training of the child will be handed over to the state through nannies, daycares, etc.
Over the years all parental tools have been weakened and with the dissolution of families, young couples are gullible to the wiles of state and medicine, their power stolen from them without them even aware of it so trained are they to accept the dictates of the medical profession.
We are not meant to have a permanent "private" life. We are meant to remain lonely and isolated, in a state of perpetual courtship, dependent on consumer products for our identity.
This is especially destructive for woman. Her sexual attraction is a function of her fertility. As fertility declines, so does her sex appeal. If a woman devotes her prime years to becoming "independent," she is not likely to find a permanent mate. However, that problem is being handled through the emasculation of the male through drugs and social manipulation and the politically correct protected promotion of alternative lifestyles.
Her long-term personal fulfillment and happiness lies in making marriage and family her first priority. Feminism is another cruel New World Order hoax that has debauched American women and despoiled Western civilization.
It has ruined millions of lives and represents a lethal threat to Islam.
I am not advocating the burka but rather some of the values that it represents, specifically a woman's consecration to her future husband and family, and the modesty and dignity this entails.
Among almost all Muslims today, there has been a huge change. Couples are couples and the polygamous faction has faded to a great degree. This, too, is a shame because it robs the poorer members of society, widows, etc of a place to live and leaves more of them in the dire position of poverty. The original reason for taking multiple wives was originally to accommodate the needs of such women.
Today in the more modern cities and areas of the Middle East, polygamy, while not a thing of the past, is no longer the norm. Also the cost of living has made it harder for a man to support more than one household since every wife is to be treated equally to the other in everything from time spent with each to the accommodations supplied.
The media portrays Muslim women wearing a hijab as weak, with scared eyes. Always with a black hijab, eyes pleading for help from the western readers. Never once have I've seen a picture in a Norwegian newspaper of a smiling Muslim woman wearing a colorful hijab.
Like the ones I do see every day. They are beautiful, some are simply stunning. I bought my own hijab last year because I think it looks so pretty.
I have not worn it in public, but I've made numerous promises both online and in RL that I will wear the hijab, a burka or a niqab if a ban ever is to be implemented. And the police, politicians, feminists and racists would have a very hard time explaining why I, a liberated western woman wearing this garment of my own free will, was fined for being out in public. A very hard time indeed.
We in the west have a lot to learn about respect. And far too many of us need to learn that today integration has a meaning similar to assimilation.The women's liberation movement, the french revolution, the black power movement all led to the rights we in the west have today.
IA head covering on a Muslim is a political statement but it is not when on a Christian nun’s head. ~ Riem Spielhaus, Humbolt University.
The burka and the bikini represent two extremes. The answer lies somewhere in the middle.
