Hijab: Our Symbol of Freedom
Transcript of Hijab: Our Symbol of Freedom
What is the first word that comes to mind?
Protects beauty; Magnifies character
Judge based on intellect not appearance
Why Wear the Hijab?
<-- SWAG VID
Shows Others What Islam is Like
How Do We Combat Hate & Ignorance Toward Hijab?
Throughout history, in Abrahamic religions, pious people have covered. Even today, many jews and nuns cover their hair.
In sculptures of Mary, she is wearing hijab.
Explain how it forces the rest of the world to judge based on personality, not looks.
It is not oppressive, because both genders have a dress code.
Elite women in ancient Mesopotania as well as the Greek, Byzantine, and Persian Empires wore the veil to show respectability and high status
It is all about what we choose to do when we wear hijab, and our confidence in our response to their ignorance.
Speak with eloquence and be articulate, show that Muslim women are just as educate and well-spoken as those who are not
Hijab is even accepted by the socially elite and fashionable. Most importantly, it is accepted by Allah. There is no reason to feel ashamed of hijab.
Who Says Hijabis
Jordan's team captain Miseda Naseem after winning the women's Arabia Cup
Ibtihaj Muhammad at the 2013 World Fencing Championship
The answer is simpler than you would think:
Allah (SWT) made it Fard upon us.
Some benefits of it are:
If and when the decision to become Muhajibah is being made, purify intentions and do it for Allah (SWT), and Allah (SWT) alone
Do not let anyone force you into the decision as Allah (SWT) will not accept your efforts unless they are pure
And tell the believing women to reduce [some] of their vision and guard their private parts and not expose their adornment except that which [necessarily] appears thereof and to wrap [a portion of] their headcovers over their chests and not expose their adornment except to their husbands, their fathers, their husbands' fathers, their sons, their husbands' sons, their brothers, their brothers' sons, their sisters' sons, their women, that which their right hands possess, or those male attendants having no physical desire, or children who are not yet aware of the private aspects of women. And let them not stamp their feet to make known what they conceal of their adornment. And turn to Allah in repentance, all of you, O believers, that you might succeed.
In the Qur'an
Surat an Nur 31-32
When is Hijab not required?
