their beloved blood brothers and sisters in Islam.
I will speak about a subject
usually I don't approach.
And it is left for
this callers, which I'm not one of them to discuss the details of poker.
And do add an activist like myself,
usually do not go into
things like this.
and what is going around us, not only in this country, but around the world
makes it very important for us
to pay attention
and to spring into immediate action.
Court of Justice just two days ago
passed a ruling
basically, to ban
The target of this ban
is to ban basically the hijab, the Muslim women's head cover their modesty cover
and to allow European companies to legally ban Muslims from practicing their faith in public.
And that is the equivalent
of the Supreme Court that we have in the United States.
And these who have the job
enemies of Islam that wants to get
body of this Muslim oma and want to have a big crack
into the shell and the wall that surrounds our oma
issue of hijab now can get presented as a controversial issue.
But if we just go back
one century back there is no controversy
in the books of FIFA, and the books of jurisprudence of Islam, about hijab, you don't see any traditional books that are having debates about whether the job is obligatory upon women, Muslim women are not.
All of these ideas started with the European,
with the Middle Eastern and the in the Muslim world being opened to the European cultures,
and scored the liberation of women.
And now we have Muslims.
people that follow
the religion of Islam, that have been promoting the idea
that a job is optional.
It's not an obligation.
And now we have now legal ruling
women, Muslim women
an essential part of their religion if they want to follow it in public places.
So this is something that we need to talk about. And we need to understand, and our men and women, our brothers and sisters and our young brothers and sisters, need to understand what this is all about.
What is hijab?
What does it mean?
If we actually look in the Quran
and if you want to do a word search in the Quran, about the word hijab, it never not one time in the Koran came to mean this carve the head cover
that we call today he job.
It doesn't mean that piece of clothing that we recognize now as the headcover.
Whichever name and the culture that we have, it never came in the Quran as hijab, the word hijab in the Koran it's been used several times, to mean barrier or avail.
Allah says that it is not for a human being to for to speak to Allah except in Lamin hora he job except behind a veil.
And then if he jab upon the wives of the Prophet sallahu wa salam was the same thing. They had to speak to people behind a curtain, not not speaking about a veil that they put upon their heads. It's not a scarf.
The proper word
used by the Arabs, just like any other piece of clothing, they had this specific word for every special word piece of clothing, commies Siwon. Rida mitts on
the headscarf. It's called t Mar.
And that's the word that is used in the Quran.
So if you are to do a word search, you're not going to look for a job. You can look for kaymar
and Allah subhana wa tada Allah when he made
wearing that obligatory upon the Muslim women.
He taught us how to do it.
Because the Arabs have the time for Heather and her hubby yet they knew what the model was. And it was a common piece of clothing
worn by the free women and usually not weren't worn by slave girls. So it was to distinguish
the three from the slaves
so it was the sign of nobility of honor of being rich.
So they knew what the motto was. And unless the kind of what the other says what Colin luminati yo Buddha mean I'm sorry him. Why
are you Dina Xena

in Evo Latina Allah, this is saracino
when Allah Subhana Allah to Allah says till the women believers
to lower their gazes to guard their chastity
and not to show their Zina their ornament their beauty except what inadvertently
is being shown out of it
and then let them take their EMR their head cover, and let it bring it down to the opening of
Jube agenda job is the opening of the commies. So, they will bring it down and they will cover the opening of the Communist because they used to wear the T mark and they will bring it back. So that exposes the ears and the neck and then the the the opening of the chest and Allah subhanho wa Taala for them to take it down. So the only thing that you can see there is all of that will be brought down.
And nothing should be shown in the front. And the only debate that the scholars had was there that meant to actually take the PMR and cover the entire face with niqab or just cover that area and for the face to be allowed to show that's the only debate that you would see in the books of Sapa and there is no debate
whether the tea mob the score the job as we call it today is an obligation upon women as a lot depends on what the ad a clearly says. Say
the believing women to do this
yeah you had an A B

Karin Allahu la hora en Rahim

Takes prevention and honor and the dignity of women
above everything else.
To prevent the fitna to prevent
problems in the society.
The messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the agreed upon Hadith said matter of two Body Fitness and other region millimeter. I did not leave behind me a fitna

Man upon women among men, then
the fitna the attraction of women.
Brothers and sisters, Ben know this.
That is a weakness in men.
And Allah Subhana Allah to Allah knows that the creator knows that Subhana Allah Allah. So he who put that instinct in men, he puts ways to channel that in the right way.
the fasting for those who are not married, a taqwa the piety, but also, you do not put
meat in front of a cat
until the catchy candy so you try to prevent
temptation and seduction.
And Allah subhanaw taala honored us from day one of our creation with being covered up with our close
with this setter
and the first fitna, the first tribulation the first testing of Adam
was about taking off our clothes
was about letting go of the setup. Yep Nadia Benny Adam, and zelner Allah, La come the best and you are so article mauritia what do you guys who took was alika?
Danny came in at La

mean a gentleman in the back.
Oh, children of Adam, then let's say pawn
give you fixing that, like he did. Your parents, Adam and Hawa he led their clothes fold down
and take him away from gender.
What does the job mean?
What is the what is the meaning of the job for a woman for a Muslim woman?
First of all, it's an identity.
It is the identity of a Muslim woman.
Unless that's Danica Edna and you're often
Allah recognize a Muslim woman with that ID. Allah subhanaw taala honored the Muslim woman he said, I want you to be recognized by that mark
in the Quran,
and it is the honor and the dignity of the woman.
Because Islam and Muslims,
and the manners of Islam does not look to women as the object of sensual pleasure.
It is women are not the use.
Women are not expected to look attractive for the public.
They're not valued for their looks.
They are valued for their piety.
They are valued for the character, they are valued for the person.
And it is a protection for that woman. And man, you're about not vain, they wouldn't be harmed. And we know in this society, all of us in the workplace, how common sexual harassment is.
And we know
that those who are modest, who dress modestly, especially women who dress with hijab, there are much much less likely to be the subject of sexual harassment. And there's actually clear statistics. That way Japanese women who jabby women are much less likely to be victims of sexual assault and rape.
This is what Allah says in the Quran. Delica Edna and your roughness Allah you then
it is a protection
and more importantly, it is an act of worship.
It is an act of getting closer to Allah. It is an act of pleasing Allah subhana wa tada
and that is some of the more important things.
We ask Allah subhanaw taala to keep us in the guidance of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the guidance of the mothers of the believers. Upon matters my own was tougher on Mojave Valley walakum Pharaohs, I'm suffering

and give the world lectures about liberty and freedom
are scared of a piece of cloth on a head of a Muslim woman. It frightens them.
It threatens their civilization, as they said.
That is what's gonna ruin the society in Europe, not the pornography, not the, the complete disintegration of the structure of the family. That is not what they're afraid of. They're afraid of that piece of cloth of that scarf on the head of the Muslim woman.
Europeans speak about women's rights
and freedoms. And they accuse Islam
of being oppressor
to women's rights.
So how about Muslim women's rights in choosing her own attire?
the Muslim woman's right and expressing their own beliefs in Europe, or even here in the United States? If we don't preemptively do something
to protect the rights,
the freedoms of religion?
What about women's rights to be
who they want to be in society?
This expose the hypocrisy, the hypocrisy
have what they claim to be a superior
culture, a superior civilization to Islam. Allah, Allah subhanaw taala put them in this situation just to expose that hypocrisy.
and I want to talk to some sisters.
that sends some messages in the last few months
asking if it is allowed
to remove the hijab.
I want to say a few things to the sisters, sisters, and publicly answer that question.
If you are intimidated
by the onslaught,
and the vicious campaign, ask yourselves just few questions. And I will leave the answers to you.
Because only you can answer those questions.
Who is more worthy of being feared?
Who is more worthy
of being obeyed?
What does your hijab mean to you?
Why you wearing the hijab in the first place?
And why you're not wearing the hijab?
And then ask yourself, what is my current relationship with Allah subhana wa tada? And how does it compare to my relationship with other than Allah subhana wa Tada.
And then we all have to ask ourselves, not just the sisters, what are our duties and obligations and this time,
then the decision will become much more clear and much more decisive.
And I would leave you with this thought brothers and sisters. Just remember one thing.
It is never and it has never been about what they do.
It's never been
about what enemies of Islam do to us.
Throughout our history from day one.
It's always about what we do and how we respond.
What happens at the end is always about us how we respond to these things. What we
You need to do in face of these things are we going to give up? Are we going to give in? Are we going to do this? Or are we going to show Allah subhanho wa Taala who we are
and show our adherence?
There's a message of a law and the teaching of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam.
Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and Allah and Ron
and I will conclude with this verse.
He told us what will happen, he said let tabla Luna cm rally command you will be tested in your wealth and in your souls. What happens
when a Latina
woman a Latina Saku?
And you shall hear
you will hear
from those who were given the book before you and from the disbelievers a lot of harm, a lot of injury. So expected it's just part of life. It's part of being on the path of truth and Islam.
Why in hospital, whatever.
But if you're patient and have Taqwa
for iniziale come in as me
that will give you the resolve the endurance and the perseverance and that will give us the power that will give us the success, inshallah.
It is what we do, and how we face this.
And what we need to do to be proactive.
In the face of this onslaught, this is not the time
to put our heads down. This is not the time to give in brothers and sisters.
