It just seems that recently all around me I am hearing the same thing being spoken about. Somehow, everyone (sisters) seems to be looking for an answer with regards the important aspect of Purdah/wearing of the niqaab. It seems that some are finding it difficult on wearing the niqaab and maintaining segregation whilst others want segregation but experience resistance from either in-laws or their families. I am not a scholar in any way but just felt the need to share some advices from someone who has been in a similar position and can understand the dilemma that a woman faces and the way such a battle can cause such hostility.

Let us first and foremost look at what Shariah demands from us. What does our Rabb Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala and our beloved Nabi (salallahu alayhi wasallam) ask of us. In the Quraan we are told:” ‘And when ye ask of them (the wives of the Prophet Salallahu Alayhi Wasallam) anything, ask it of them from behind a curtain. That is purer for your hearts and for their hearts.’ (Verse 53 Surah Ahzaab). There are many more Quraanic Aayaat and Ahaadeeth that apply to this issue.

The ones who are asking questions or are having problems with issues relating to the wearing of the Niqaab are often those who are already wearing the niqaab (Alhamdulillah) and understand the importance of this beautiful injunction of the Shariah. They wholeheartedly accept that every law and command of Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala is there to protect one and all. read more

My Sisters Stand Strong

by Suriya Jaekoma

No Longer shackled by the oppression of miniskirts and see-thru shirts,
my sisters stand strong.
Covered by beautiful cloth as a submission to ALLAH
my sisters stand strong
they stand apart from the crowd. The many taunts, stares and leers,
my sisters stand strong
never dissuading from following the Deen
my sisters stand strong
Real women indeed, the epitome of femininity
elegant, secure, complete human beings
my sisters stand strong
not slaves to the world of fashion
my sisters stand strong
fashion is always having the fads asking
for women to dress in as little as they possibly can.
Miniskirts see-thru shirts and hip hugging pants
the Hijab is for the sake of ALLAH
in Iman and in Taqwa
lowering their gaze continuously giving praise
my sisters stand strong
living by the rules of the Qur'an
and following the Prophet's Sunnah
my sisters stand strong
these sisters refuse to be made into objects, by men.
Such are my sisters in Islam
my sisters live on!

A man goes to the doctor with a swollen leg. After a careful examination, the doctor gives the man a pill big enough to choke a horse.

"I'll be right back with some water," the doctor tells him.

The doctor is gone awhile and the man loses patience.

He hobbles out to the drinking fountain, forces the pill down his throat and gobbles down water until the pill clears his throat. He hobbles back into the examining room.

The doctor comes back with a bucket of warm water.

"Okay, after the tablet dissolves, soak that leg for at least 30 minutes."
