Due to a law and the loss of decent blessings on Islamic prophet Mohammed from a long while he was seldom, and all those who follow the path of righteousness until the last day
of removing the veil.
In Arabic the term uses to fool
and the veil.
The term commonly used for the veil here in Arabic is hijaab,
which refers to the covering of the woman in general, not necessarily covering a particular part of the body, but the covering of a woman in general
address the dress of the Muslim woman, which should normally cover her from
people who have no right to look at her
this process, the process of the unveiling of the Muslim woman as being one of the most dangerous products, which
is selling to the Muslim land.
it is something which has come about
in a gradual fashion that has just taken place
all at once.
We know even looking back historically,
the process of
colonization of different parts of the Muslim world
in the 16th century,
all the way through to the 19th century, 20th century when the Islamic
State lasted Islamic State,
the Ottoman Empire planning
this represents the last stage in the final breakup of the Muslim world, splintering of different areas into colonies of the various Western powers.
And, through this whole process,
unveiling of the Muslim woman did not begin did not immediately take place. Back in the 16th century, we didn't find the women all of a sudden, you know,
400 years ago, just taking off all their clothes, no, because historically speaking, if we look even from a Western point of view,
they did not begin
exposing their women until early in the 20th century, this is when the actual process of the clothing and clothing the women began seriously. In the past, there were styles and fashions, which may not have been acceptable Say for example, from an Islamic point of view, where fashions we have involved clothes, which were tight or safety, enhancing certain parts of the body, etc. But generally speaking, the limit of the past were covered
with the exception of the hair falls over here.
However, in the 20th century,
when the West embarked
in a program of unclosing, the woman
less than women, they began selling the same product.
And as I said, the concept of entered into the Muslim world on a in a gradual fashion. This is why today when you look around in different parts of the Muslim world, you will find mothers covered and uncovered
happen immediately everybody is uncovered. No, you can see it is happening with the generation each generation, the
new generation of women are becoming more and more unclothed.
And, you know, sometimes it begins with showing some here in some parts of the arms compared to the legs, you know, until eventually they end up wearing dresses which are very similar to Western dresses. In some parts of the Muslim world, you can find that the effects have been so
rooted that the Muslim woman is indistinguishable from the non Muslim woman.
In many parts of the Western world today, she is indistinguishable
from places for example, is like Indonesia, in certain parts of Malaysia and Philippines.
You will find that the Muslim woman will have a dress that she wears once again
In the masjid when she when she's outside, and
when she reaches the door of the masjid, she'll have a bag with a hijab that you put on when she goes to play in the mosque.
But outside of the masjid, she looks the same as the non Muslim women. And, of course, the mom is guessing, addressing the situation here in particular, because this is one of the countries where the Muslim women are the most covered.
This is sort of like the last bastion
the attack is coming here, you know, it is being concentrated here, because it can be broken at the core, you know, the the place
that has been at the center of the Muslim world, then it means that the the effort, the where they call the fundamentalists efforts to try to do the people in other parts, you know, there is movement, developing advanced cyclists and welcome back to the correct practice, you know, if they can work, they can undermine the program here in the center of the Western world, then that will undercut the efforts which is taking place in the outlying parts of the Muslim world.
unveiling is one
in which the media plays a major role
in media, whether it's in the form of cinemas,
whether it is in the form of videos,
newspapers, wherever all of the various forms of the media play a major role in promoting the western mode of Western approach to dress.
And by people in this part of the world, accepting
aspect of media censorship, because
of that, which is obviously sexual, I mean, like kissing or hugging
your five senses, but the actual woman herself, is not
the woman, so the western woman on the television,
in the magazines, you know, say that he or the magazine coming from different parts of the world, you know,
in the video,
from a sector point of view, in terms of the woman and the woman, it is still there, for them that this is entering into the home.
If you're watching this, we can see an effect in the society, even from a point of view of the different kinds of crimes, which are prevalent now.
over the period of the last 15 years, the types of crimes that have taken place, places for which people are being punished, be executed or whatever, you know, different crime, because see the quality of the crime changing. The type of crimes that were around 50 years ago, are slightly different from today, the crime that you're seeing show up today, one, which you see verified in the videos coming from
different kinds of crimes kidnapper, these types of you know, armed robbery and gangs, drug dealers,
are arising in these times, which didn't exist three years ago.
And this is a direct result of the media promotion of Western Western society because what happens is that the various movies and videos has come from the left to glorify the drug dealer.
glorify, you know, a various crime discriminate was able to find some
people have been caught, you know, there's a glorification of crime.
So, that has a practical effect on the quality of the types of funds that have taken place in society here. We can have no doubt that it has also affected other aspects of the society. That is one very obvious aspect we see. But it is affected other aspects, including the dress of the Muslim, female.
We're calling people to be aware of what is taking place.
the types of letters that are being run now, by women, you know, women here still out there covering the style of dress that they are now wearing.
When they have the gathering women gathering
Western style dresses, low cut next type in extending the shape see through
the western styles exactly,
this is a part of that process. And also even the outer garments, the ibuyer. If you go back 15 years ago, the abayas outer garments, which was one, you had a choice between a cheap one
which is made from nylon or some cotton artificial mix, or
out of the basement, virtually, the only difference was in the quality of the material. However, 15 years have passed. Now, when you look at the choices that a person has in terms of a woman to choose, and a buyer, you've got all kinds of
designs and the buyers have become so, fancy many of them
in and of themselves, that they become a form of beauty,
they become a form of attraction, they become like the integration that they were wearing before.
So, this is a this is a reality which the people are living with.
what we have to understand
the planet perspective is that
the primary purpose of an Islamic point of view is to cover
the private part to cover one sided practices the primary
reason for that,
number one, covering the private part,
the private pass to a woman is different from the private part
is the covering of the private part.
Secondary reason is to protect one from the elements
the secondary Wi Fi people were originally things in their head colors that they use white to reflect the sunlight was very hot, you know, different qualities of material depending on the element elements, the primary,
secondary reason to protect one from the elements.
The third reason is beautification.
We all have a desire to be beautiful.
And Allah has put that desire in us. And naturally,
that become a part of the purposes Yes, however, there are limits to have been set by the divine law as to how one may beautify one talk. So, we of course, have to stay within the limits of duplication
and women alive, this quality of desire for beautification, this may be called the peacock, complex. Peacock is that bird with a very fancy feathers, you know, it opens up all the feathers, you've seen them in the museum in your country, like to show at the zoo, this is the nature of women even stronger than the men.
And the reason
for that attraction,
marriage may take place families may be established in a society a lot quicker than that, that is a stronger desire, even certain allowances and forms of visitation are given
to them for that fulfillment and that natural disasters have a correct and valid purpose for human society, but that it could stay within the bounds of the set by law. So he said first reason was
covering the private part. Second reason was protection from the elements. Third reason was for beautification.
Right, this is how it is according to the Islamic scheme of things 123
if the opposite,
protection from the elements. A third reason is covering one cyber attack.
How do we live
in North America
You'll find women wearing
eyes look at her body.
The purpose is that of covering what's out
there in terms of death is exposure. This is why you see, for example, in the Olympics
in the newspapers never even have to filter out
for the men,
they now have sex with us,
head on them back, you know the private
sector from the Olympics, where they had to come to and put a kind of a veil over this region of the body with a person, you know, with London
there, we can see that it is new to all segments of society. And
with the study,
over the past 15 years, where the death of a woman has been
getting smaller and smaller.
What you find is that there has been a rise in rates
a rise in the molestation of women.
That last year, according to the Bureau of Statistics, criminal statistics, in America, the number of reported rapes
had crossed the 100,000 Mark
100,000 reported rates in a year.
And they said that the actual number was probably seven to 10 times that, because most women are sorry, I'm afraid to depress the rest. There's a small percentage, one in seven or one in 10, that are
talking about a very serious situation. A situation right now where
there have been major fires going on now, for a number of officers in the Navy, because they had a party.
After the Gulf War,
they had a party. They were officers.
officers were also invited, it was a mixed party. What they did was in a hotel, the men lined up in the hallway, in the hall of the where the rooms are in the hotel, they formed two lines, one on either side of the hall, and they forced the women to run through between the men and the men, as the women are running through the men were grabbing at them pulling off the clothes, bundling them. These are female officers in the Navy.
So now these male officers are on trial, they are being kicked out of the Navy for
the army, they found that women from a corporal all the way to the female generals
as one, that they were being harassed by the male
And this is
the harassment of the female is on the increase, the more that the woman was taken off.
There's a direct relationship there. So we can see that Islamic societies where emphasis is placed on the ruling of the woman, the protection of a man because
for the protection of the woman.
You can see that we focus the crimes against women are much less, but they are starting to increase as the violence is being decreased.
Keep in mind because you know oftentimes, Western elements to the left
of the Roman, the Muslim woman as oppression is oppression of the woman.
This is why they get called to the unveiling under the heading of
the liberation of the woman
to the covered woman doesn't affect women. The uncovered woman is a liberated woman is that these are the headings that we put out
This is the chapter titles of the calling of anger, that the past is the so called liberated woman of the West because
in America, he's under duress in, in, in, in epidemic numbers, harassed in all of our job situations, this
is the kind of freedom that we want for our mothers or wives or daughters. This is
kind of freedom.
But this is a heading is coming. But the fact is that the veiling of the Muslim woman is not for the oppression of that woman at all. It is for the protection of the woman.
looks at when it looks at a society,
and looks at the needs of the members of the society.
There's a stand up and say, the man, and the women are equal.
Wherever A man has a woman should have the equal and all fair.
Because the reality is that on a very basic physical level,
men are stronger than women. In general, I'm not saying that you will not find some women who are who could be the guys
that American women are, you know, they could take you guys
in general, in all human societies, where people are generally
smaller than men will be stronger than
people of color, because
this is just the way God has made men
and women, that men are stronger than
The reality is that we cannot separate the biological and the psychological.
physical being will affect your mental state.
When you get sick, physically, you can get down mentally, you know, there's the intuition, there's something happening between the two, you can measure it, you can improve your physical situations, you know, there's an interplay there.
So, the fact that males are stronger than females can take that into account. And it puts the males in a position of responsibility, and leadership, responsibility leadership. And
this becomes your role now as the leaders responsible one, to look out to the society
to look after the weaker members of the society, beginning with the women, and the children. These are the two root two elements in society, women have to be protected.
Because if men and women are put on an equal footing, the man being stronger than the woman will take advantage of the woman.
That is the nature of the man.
So therefore, you have separation, the Islamic Society, part of the veiling of the Muslim woman, it involves separation. This is not all just the just the typical Rabbi out to cover No, it has also to do with the actual separation of the women out from the men, men or women are not mixing easily in the society, for the protection of the women.
When a woman speaks to a man
who is not direct relative, when she is commanded to speak to him, in a place of normal voice, not to talk to him
in a different voice,
a voice which is flirtatious.
When a woman talks to another woman, she talks in a particular level, if a man is involved, then that quality of a voice says,
When a man talks to another man he talks to the woman is right now, we are commanded to control that voice, to make sure that the voice stays on that normal, even keel to prevent the side of the veil is part of the separation, control for the protection
female and following that naturally the protection of the children because if a woman is raped,
and the child is one, the child suffers.
Woman suffers and the child suffers.
So protection of women is also protection of children.
So the Islamic Society puts great
emphasis on the veiling of the woman for her protection in the society.
The man went on to
families the male particular guard the Guardian,
that it is their duty to prevent the women from wearing dresses which are prohibited the Haram styles of dresses they should prevent,
why their wives, sisters, daughters,
mothers dressed in the fashion that
they will have to answer first and foremost, it doesn't mean that the woman will not
be allowed to stand before a lot of choice that they made.
The person primary responsibility is placed on the shoulders of the man because he is the head of the household.
He is the leader.
the Guardian, the male, to prevent the woman from going out in dresses,
worn out in dresses is a fancy way to get to attract people. And we're not
wearing our perfume
because I tell them I said a woman who goes out of her home wearing perfume, which is detectable you get a fantastic perfume which is so safe, you can smell it, this is allowed. But once she puts on a cat, which when she walks by you can smell her then the salon describes her as being a qualitative
woman who comes out wearing perfume and that person is a fornicator because she is calling people when a woman walks by you smell that smell that causes your head to turn and you know, tend to think and she is calling you to corruption
with the women are not allowed to go out
in the privacy of their home for the sake of their husband,
they can wear the kind of perfume which is bootleg or whatever because they're the kind of attention that they will get is Hello
is part of knowledge.
The second point that the amount advises that men to be examples themselves
in the sense that for them to sit
and watch videos and movies
where the women are on top
What are they selling what what is the rest is
a very first victory for romantically selling a woman.
But then he says
because if you are watching along with women, they are getting the message from him that
this is what he likes
he has to be
the first example
he has to control the media in his own home
that may be pleasing to Him
may in fact be
at least calling to
control the environment of his home he has to be the first example.
The third point mentioned
briefly talked about
one of them was a woman described as being covered with naked,
covered, get naked. That is the type of clothes they were wearing.
types of things with four rows underneath our customers open for them in different parts of their body, you know could be wearing a long dress
blocking these kind of dresses.
The fourth point
i mean what I was saying is that, you know,
we have to be conscious of what it means to be
properly dressed as a woman. Males have that responsibility of maintaining what is acceptable dress. The first point
is that the cover that the woman
Where goes out could not be a source of attraction and
because of that,
it's not to say that black is the only cover that a woman may wear as an outer garment
library could not be flashy, fancy colors, which are going to call attention to ourselves, it could be up without colors,
single colored or you know, or darker stripes colors, once again, right?
You know with gold, and silver thread and rhinestones on it is not to say that black is the only cover that a woman may wear as an outer garment
of the color. However, it should not be flashy, fancy colors, which are going to call attention to ourselves, they should be up with our favorite colors,
single colored or you know,
darkest color, while they're not bright, sparkling, you know, gold thread and silver thread and in rhinestones on a sparkling and fast in people's eyes, it should be simple, plain type of dress, the purpose of covering is that is to cover not to call attention to detail, people come looking at
people from nothing, and most of us
most of us do, some Western societies
when a woman dressed in an Islamic fashion, you're fine with the men.
depending if he's dressed in a tropical climate factor, I don't mean like, properly,
we find that the women, the men will start to see her differently.
I know a number of women have told me from America. How? By putting on a dress, you know, getting on a bus, for example, men would get up enough with
men who would normally be harassing women and those that were getting up no nothing.
You know, what order of the nuns are you from?
This is the this is the attitude. I mean, obviously, they feel alien, you know what we have to back off this is this is
definitely a a
positive effect, when women of the West begin to cover themselves islamically
one of the points that we mentioned was that it is important that the common room be understood
by the faith and worship, another form of cultural habit.
that a woman understands
that covering herself is directly related to believing in Allah.
It's a part of believing in Allah
has to be educated in the sense of knowing who he is,
his or her duties
and to understand that this is a part of a duty to Allah.
Third is the correct covering family covering the job and the western women to take place properly.
In liquid society, the mix of women has to be educated.
In the Muslim world, our women in general.
They don't know.
They don't have knowledge of the religion, either.
And in fact, they do end up when you actually look at them, practically speaking, none of them are in a state of oppression.
The male sitting head back
to the master
has to be linked with the education of the Muslim woman
who has to be educated.
and foremost, concerning ID or religion, to know who she is,
why she was created, what is
And then she is educated to understand that the violin is a part of her duty to unlock.
the rationale and the reason practically speaking, but it is also primarily a beautiful law. Because I went, he was the God of the woman, she believes in that she's worshipping Allah by doing so.
By greenfest, this is an act of worship Eva
has to be understood.
When she does go, then you will not be able to get that women to remove that dress.
If you like a woman who understands the five times,
in the same way, with a dress,
don't have to worry about her.
However, the woman who doesn't have this man is wearing it because of the pressure of the society around her. It's a cultural practice to wear this garment. Then, when she gets on a plane, both of you see the phenomenon all of us see, when we get unplugged, leaving
Saudi Arabia right, where all these women are getting off all covered in black. As soon as they get onto the plane, first off, it leaves the ground, going into the bathrooms coming out, everything is taken out. They're looking just like women everywhere.
And the opposite. We see all Western women coming on the plane coming back to Saudi Arabia, as soon as they the pilot announces, you know, we'll be landing in Riyadh or Judah in the next, you know, 10 minutes, if you're a woman going to the bathroom and coming back out all
this is a practice this has nothing to do with religious consciousness. This is just culture.
And this is what we don't want, because that is the one that can easily be removed.
was removed in many parts of the Muslim world.
Because the Muslim woman was
a Muslim man himself was ignorant, did not educate women, then the process of unveiling of the woman was a relatively easy process.
In the second part of the process,
we will outline the various arguments, some of the various arguments
who consider that a woman should be covered from head to toe, including the face
and the head.
Arguments held by other scholars,
that the woman should be covered from the head to the top, except for the face and hen issue issue.
You may need these arguments.
Alana Modi called further and the woman in Islam. And if you give the arguments for the covering of
the woman, totally kidding.
That it is composed.
And there's a booklet available on the market also called Muslim woman just in Islam by
Mr. Paul Kennedy, when he outlines the arguments of those who hold that the woman should cover everything compulsory, with the exception of the face and hand. And this is voluntary on her part.
Those of you who want to go deeper into this, to understand it.
The good for you to read both of these books, discuss with other people and then you come to the conclusion for yourself what is best for you and your family.
And he close with that on the bond when the law says to know how you
protect yourself and your families, from the buyer.
The duty that we have for ourselves to protect
ourselves and our families under fire. We do so by recognizing our responsibilities to Allah, by educating our women
to understanding that the veiling is an act of worship, and not a cultural practice
insist when necessary, because you may explain to a woman, however educated, and she may still feel that she wants to go out in a fashion, which is not acceptable sonically. And males being in a position of authority now have the responsibility to insist
to insist that they do not do so
you can judge the state of Islam of a people, by the dress of their women,
you can judge the state of the Islam of the people, by the dress of the women.
consciousness of Islam in the society will be
by the state of dress of the women of the society,
the women and lifted
the whole society
by the general state of consciousness, what is Islam, the implementation of Islamic principles,
and all the different things
the more cover the women, is, the higher the level of Islamic consciousness in the society. That's just a practical measure. And those of us who are coming from different countries, we can judge, we can look at our society and
the realities of this statement, this statement is a good yardstick for us to judge to understand the state of our society.
So in recapping,
I just like to remind you that
is selling itself and the rest of the world
selling his products,
some are beneficial.
It is the duty to make a distinction between that which is useful, and that which is destructive. Take what is useful and live.
Among the most destructive products of the West, is the unveiling, or the unclosing, a woman
promoted through the media through all the various needs.
First and foremost, for promotion of beauty.
Islamic concept is first and foremost, to cover the private part.
We have to be clear on the differences in approach and establish the collective Islamic approach to adjust not only for the female, but also for the male.
Usually we tend to concentrate on the female, because they're the one whose exposure creates
the greatest harm in the society.
Because they're the weaker member of the psyche, more easy attack, you don't really hear about men being
complacent, that's not the usual stuff. It is a 911 is called
However, the example
could be one not only of education and advice, etc. But the mayor themselves suggests in keeping with the Islamic principles of
birth is not acceptable for a man to be wearing clothes.
Despite the fact
people are super tight.
In fact, wear tight pants for example, which when you stand up, you can see it hugging along behind and it was privatized. So you're in the normal circumstance. That's kind of unacceptable.
Not acceptable, and not just
because one of the conditions for the accessibility of prayer is covering one
shouldn't be wearing loose clothing
in the form of fanfare, I love to say everybody has to wear a
long garment. No. It can be shirt and pants but
The fan should be so loose as to not expose, under normal circumstances, the privates should be used,
or the top should come down and cover that area. You know, that's even better. This is why you find in the traditional way of looking around the world where they wear pants, and a top, usually top comes down, you know, someplace around the knees, to cover this area. This is the modesty of the Muslim man.
You know, this is something that we should also keep in mind.
And that it is the responsibility of the male being the head of the family to ensure that their females stay within the bounds of Islam. And the address, also in the fact that they may not go out in a state which is self fuel, which is calling to themselves.
And perhaps the most important of all, that we educate our women so that they understand that the veiling is an act of worship.
It has to do with a duty to law first, and
then we'll also let them understand that it is for their own protection, they should be able to grasp this understand that
want that for themselves a wonder why women are obliged, just in fashion, they should understand it so they can explain.
They should work for themselves, first and foremost, to be convinced. And they should be able also to explain it to others.
That's basically the content of the law.
If anybody would like now to ask some questions concerning female guests in Islam,
first and foremost, you know, then we can go on to general questions,
woman did last time to get him back to the man, emphasizing that the man really has
made an earlier analogy of the peacock effect. I just want to say that because
it's the man who has the
beautiful and he uses it, beauty, the woman and one of the things I've noticed, recently, in 50 years, that the man has become more conscious of his death, he's no longer the death of ways to be attacked by a woman but rather he's doing all he can
even bow with his, with his headset with his sunglasses.
Watch what happens. And it goes right back to the point that was in the man who has the head of a family that you know is the single
most at the top via the
video or the video that comes to the homeowner or not
his own behavior, again and again, his own dress. Very, very important. You find many, many times I have seen this society where the woman who is uncovered
is also wearing the pipe fitting clothes, he is more inclined for the left and even if you're not
able to wear the pants with a fancy pipe
icon can't move when something moves. I think we
have a big bit
to keep in mind.
First of all, I'm employed by wives and mothers and my daughter
issue is not to eat away.
foods you know,
because the same reason the western effect has come into the fold itself even though you know which normally is covering the body. Now you have materials because people they may find some of the young men wearing
These thoughts are so subtle, you can see the skin see underneath, but what they're just with, and if they're wearing, you know, jockey shorts or some kind of, you know, bikini
gentlemen to the area, that we that if they're wearing something with sadness, because you may find in some societies because of the, the heat, and the humidity you find in some of the society where the people will wear
materials, which are people, that they wear something underneath it, which covers properly the private area.
You know, we're dealing with, we could say, fashion conscious of beauty conscious, this type of contest, where women are put on display, saying of styles or whatever, you know, these type of things that prohibited
in general society, if women, for example, put on a fashion show for other women alone, this is something acceptable, as long as this dress is also acceptable. But the women preferred themselves in a group of men judges, you know, who are going to judge them according to the upsl felicitated, in Islamic Society, you know, and where we find representatives of governments, etc, where the women are into fashion. This is something which tells us something about the Islamic quality of that government in and of itself, exists in the newspapers, for example, in Malaysia, where
the Malaysian government has ordered all of the women who are women word wives of ambassadors or whatever, to shake the hands of men
to shake the hands of men.
Why because, and the planet consciousness was developing in the country, people became aware of the fact that islamically a woman should not be shaped in the hands of men, except for a husband, Brother, you know, within our immediate family, but you're shaking anybody's hand, which is the western custom, you know, they had started stopping doing this, for the government to stop this wave which was development has ordered the people in government services that the women must shake the hands of
the representatives they must
It's not important, which one I advocate said it is better for you to read and judge for yourself, as it is evidence from both sides.
It is better for you to judge for yourself because your judgment should not be based on what I chose.
Ultimately, you have to make the decision for yourself. I prefer not to prejudice that decision by giving you my own personal opinion. I will suggest you to read the arguments of both sides and come to your own conclusion.
You have to choose it. They both are not compatible.
Both opinions are not compatible in the sense that one says that it is compulsory for a woman to cover her face. And otherwise if he doesn't cover up cover face, she is a thinner
the other one says it is recommended for her to cover her face.
She does not cover her face. She's not a singer. So she these two views are not compatible.
One is to read research for themselves and come to their own conclusions.
Okay, technically speaking Bermuda shorts that assurance which go down to one means that
these are low
Because what is what should be covered is what is between the new and the navel, the new itself is not
a private part, nor is the navel in and of itself. But what is between immediately below the navel, immediately above the knee, this is the area that is required to be covered. Right, according to the opinion of the majority of scholars, you do have a minority who do that what has to be covered actually, is just the actual drivers themselves, you do have a minority who do hold this position. I want you to be aware of that, however, the evidence seems to support the majority position that it really is between the Navy and many
Coming to the knee, when it is acceptable islamically speaking, right. And it is colorful. It is a man with a colorful clothing. in in in Islamic context. It is not in and of itself prohibited, say islamically speaking, it's not in the sense of modesty in the general principles of modesty, but it would not be considered sinful women's wear, you know, colorful pants.
This is the first
in the Philippines, Sri Lanka, you know, wherever, in India,
the rule of the country is not Islamic rule with the Western and Islamic values. Naturally, they will try to impose these values on the society as a whole. Where the community is weak.
People are scattered. When the pressures are greater.
A woman she accepts Islam here.
She goes back home to the Philippines.
She has some children. She has to divorce her husband because he wouldn't accept Islam. Now she has to get a job.
She goes job interview. Each time she goes she finds that they wanted to take a scarf off.
She cannot get a job wearing a scarf.
Now she has to feed the children
and that circumstance where the community is so weak that it cannot provide protection for that woman. Of course she is not what we're gonna tell her Listen, sister, you cannot take a cell phone.
She does what she has to do to survive.
Right? But it doesn't mean that because she takes the top off it also means that you start to wear tight dresses and miniskirts and no goes all the way no if she didn't get the job by just taking her scarf off. Okay, that you know the point is that in situations of dire necessity, you are allowed to do what is just enough to maintain your survival you know to keep you alive keep you and your family if you're not then it's not like you just open the door and soak everything now become allows you right for me to understand that. But this now reflects back on the Muslim community.
