My name is Satish, and I'm a student studying 11th standard. My question is, all the religions have limitations of clothing. Let me be specific to the women. But they've changed with time. But why is the polka still the stem? Why hasn't that changed with time, the weather said that by the passage of time, every religion has got clothing for men, but by the passage of time, the clothing keeps on changing. But why the Muslim woman get away the burqa. As far as the clothing is concerned whether in Islam, there are six criteria for clothing for the man, it from the navel to the knee, or the extent it should be covered for the woman, the complete body should be covered, the only part that

00:00:47--> 00:01:23

can be seen, or the face and hands up to the wrist. Now, certainly scholars who say that even they should be covered, the remaining five criteria are the same for the man and the woman. The second is the clothes they wear, it should not be so tight, so that it is the figure should be loose. The third is it should not be translucent or transparent, so that you can see through the fourth is, it should not be so glamorous, so that you attract the opposite sex. Fifth, it should not resembles that of the unbeliever and six, it should not resemble that of the opposite sex. These are basically the six criteria. And most of these six criteria even mentioned in the other scriptures, if you read

00:01:23--> 00:01:55

the Bible, it's mentioned in the Bible in the book of Deuteronomy, chapter number 22, was number five. It says that the woman shall not wear clothes that fit pertinent to a man and a man shall not wear clothes that fit pertinent to a woman. All those who do this, they are creating an abomination. It further mentioned the Bible in the First Timothy chapter number two was number nine, that the woman should be desktop with shamefaced sadness, and sobriety. They should not be costly, airy, pearls and gold.

00:01:56--> 00:02:15

And further it's mentioned in the first Corinthians chapter 11 was the five to six that the woman that prayed with the head uncovered, her head should be shaved off. There is no verse in the Quran and the Hadith we save that the woman who does not cover a head should be shaved off, but the Bible is stricter.

00:02:16--> 00:03:02

Bible is stricter than the Quran, that if the woman that prays does not cover that, that should be shaved off. The same thing and then the scripture if reading the scriptures, it's mentioned Rama in that too, when pasaran when it comes to ram, he says to his wife Sita, that he that elder, therefore lower your gaze, and Guardian modesty. It further mentioned if you read rigveda, book number 10, chapter number five, verse number 30. It says that the woman who wears the clothes, of that of a man, she's defiling it, she should not wear the clothes of a man. Further, it's mentioned that in regret book number eight, that Brahma has ordered, that the woman should cover a head. So in Hindu

00:03:02--> 00:03:12

scriptures, Christian scriptures, Muslim scriptures, modesty is there, covering the head is there by the passage of time, I do agree with you, that Christianity Now

00:03:14--> 00:04:05

you only see the nuns covering the head. Therefore, pious Muslim women cover their hair, they are called as subjugated by double standards. If you see a nun covered properly, there, if we see the photograph of mother, Mary, have you seen the photograph of Mother Mary, like a Muslim, and she was a Muslim, a Muslim woman properly covered the rest only face see what I do agree with you, if you stick to the six criteria, by fashion, the types of hijab the burqa, abaya has changed. As long as you follow the six principles of Islam, and you change the color from black to blue to Brown, no problem. As long as you don't break any of the six criteria. Therefore, you see new new styles of

00:04:05--> 00:04:24

hijab, but some styles of Boudicca, they're so fashionable, that they break the law of Islam. There are so many shiny sequences coming that you're attracting the opposite sex, so that is haram. But otherwise, you want to wear red you want to wear black color lopro people think black is compulsory, black and

00:04:25--> 00:04:51

if you were black, maybe you may have to watch the burqa once in a week. If you have to wash every day. The choice is yours. You were right and wash it every day. You were black and wash it once a week choice is yours, as long as it doesn't break any of the criterias six criterias of a job. So now there are new types of upcoming as long as it doesn't break you alone. But it should be modest. If it is modest. It's accepted.
