Dear Ikhwanul Muslimin na wal Muslimat.
My topic for today is the matter of the wearing of the Niqab by self respecting, decent pious Muslimahs.
Just a few days ago, I was referred to a case of a young 19 year old Muslimah's situation who was being harassed by her own father for choosing to wear the niqab and she was desperately seeking help from any authority out there who can save her from having to forgo that right of hers to cover her modesty!
This Muslimah happens to be a Mualaf. Her father is one too but I can say being in the M.I.N.O. category.
You don't know what M.I.N.O. stands for?
Well, I word it as Muslim In Name Only. Those who have 'reverted' to Islam but do not actually put to practice all of it's religious do's and mostly indulge and engage in most of the don'ts!
There are also those amongst the born as Muslims category but don't know heck about the Islamic faith and its rules, regulations and acts of worship because their own parents or guardians do not practice the religion or live as Muslims.
Those who are clueless about what is Wajib @ Compulsory, Haram @ Forbidden, Harus @ Enjoined, Sunnah @ Example of the Blessed Prophet Muhammad ibni Abdullah Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam, Makruh @ Neither Compulsory or Forbidden, etc.
This all boils down to a question whether one really truly wants to live as a true Muslim or Muslimah and whether one wants to walk the talk so to speak to live life as a Servant of Allah the Almighty God and Creator of All or choose to be a disciple of Shaitan Laknatullah @ the Accursed Satan?
In the young Muslimah's case above, she was and still is literally caught between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, figuratively speaking.
At 19 years of age, she is actually free to decide as to how she chooses to live her life as a citizen of this country that claims to be a model Islamic nation.
In actuality, even the religious officers summoned to help her out have unfortunately chosen to chicken out when faced with her ferocious volatile father who demanded that they mind their own damn business and butt out from interfering with his decision to force his 19 year old daughter to discard her tudung and forget about getting to wear her chosen niqab!!!
As a Muslim blogger and Caller to Islam, I feel so frustrated. Frustrated because in this land of ours, there seems to be a growing number of ignorant's and recalcitrant idiots who dare to oppose Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala's Commands upon us!
I feel so pissed off that no matter how much Islam has done to uphold and protect the modesty of its adherents, the base human nature to go against the grain is getting bolder by the day to strip itself of the dignity and high moral grounds that Islam has given to the female gender.
What do you see in the photo above?
A stark contrast between the Halal and the Haram.
I recall a hadith of the Blessed Prophet Muhammad al Mustafa Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam related by Abu Huraira, Radhiallaahu 'anhu that Rasulullah Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam said:
“Two are the types amongst the denizens of Hell whom I have never seen, the one possessing whips like the tail of an ox, and they flog people with them. (The second one) women kasiyatun 'aariyaat: who would be naked in spite of their being dressed, who are seduced (to wrong paths) and seduce others with their hair high like humps. These women would not get into Paradise, and they would not perceive its odor, although its fragrance can be perceived from such and such distance (from a great distance).”
[Reported by Muslim, hadith no.6840; see also hadith no. 5310]
Brothers and Sisters, fellow Muslims whom I respect and honor very much,
The trend nowadays in aping the decadent lifestyles of the ones who have lost their sense of modesty and moral integrity seems to have seeped into the minds of the ignorants amongst our ummah.
The cowardice and treachery of those who are supposed to be in power and authority over the affairs of the Muslims is so blatantly clear that it amazes me to see these great pretenders strut about in their royal finery and pompous pageantry belying the fact that they deserve no such recognition of being the Keepers of the Faith from border to border of our country!
The ones who are supposed to be in charge and authority towards preserving the honor and chastity of our womenfolk are proven times and times again to be as the chaff before the wind when they quiver in their shoes and fear reprisals from the kaffirs and the munafiqs instead of fearing Allah Azza Wa Jalla!
Do they not know that Death can beset them at any given second?
What will they answer the Malaikats Munkar and Naqir when their dead bodies are interred in their graves and their souls be interrogated as to their state of Iman @ Faith and their Amals @ Deeds?
How can they escape Allah's Retribution when they committed such grievous Criminal Breach of Trusts whilst holding such high offices when they were alive?
What the hell is wrong with such people whom we are subjected to be under their authority over us when in reality these folks are merely parasites sucking on and feeding into the wealth and benefits accrued to their posts and positions when in reality they have not done their jobs as entrusted to them in the first place?
The Muslimah in question is today forced to submit to her ignorant father's will and she has messaged me to say that she is being forced to take off her hijab and expose her aurat as ordered by her deviant dad.
Who can help her?
This is a land of the hypocrites. It's the sad but harsh reality of Mamluk al Malaisie.
I have tried to do what I can to help but it seems to be a losing battle for the ones in niqab.
The average Malaysian citizen would prefer to see you stark naked and yam seng as you please for as I have stated before, there are the DAP @ Devils After Power who would prefer to see this land be a place where religion takes a back seat and hedonism reign supreme.
These power hungry imbeciles and their partners in crime don't give a shit about letting the ummah go to waste for they are after only one thing and that is the Prime Ministerial seat in Putrajaya which holds the key to fulfilling their ravenous hunger and greed to stuff themselves silly with all of this earthly luxuries that their sick, depraved minds and hearts crave for?
In the meantime, the great pretenders will continue to have a royal ball masquerading as the `Ulul Amri and put up a great act of looking after the faith of Al Islam in this country!
To the Muslimah in question, if you are reading this, remember that it is only to Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala that you should submit to when your own ignorant dad is forcing you to go against Allah's Standing Order and Command as per Surah An Noor Chapter 24 Verse 31:
TransliterationWaqul lilmu/minati yaghdudnamin absarihinna wayahfathnafuroojahunna wala yubdeena zeenatahunna illa mathahara minha walyadribnabikhumurihinna AAala juyoobihinna wala yubdeenazeenatahunna illa libuAAoolatihinna aw aba-ihinnaaw aba-i buAAoolatihinna aw abna-ihinna awabna-i buAAoolatihinna aw ikhwanihinna aw baneeikhwanihinna aw banee akhawatihinna aw nisa-ihinnaaw ma malakat aymanuhunna awi attabiAAeenaghayri olee al-irbati mina arrijali awi attifliallatheena lam yathharoo AAala AAawratiannisa-i wala yadribnabi-arjulihinna liyuAAlama ma yukhfeena min zeenatihinnawatooboo ila Allahi jameeAAan ayyuhaalmu/minoona laAAallakum tuflihoon
Sahih InternationalAnd 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.
Sadaqallah hal Azhim.
All I can do now is to just pray that you will be safe from the harm that your recalcitrant dad is exposing you to.
Remember what I have advised you to. All you have to do is call and it will be done. Insya Allah.
Fee amanillah ya ukhti!
To those who choose to be enemies of Islam and the Muslims, all I can say to you is to wise up and be ready to reap what you sow for Allah's Promise is a surety and there is none who can escape His Retribution!
To those who are our friends even though you be Kaffirs, May the Truth, Peace and Salvation of Allah come upon you and bring you to our fold of Al Islam, your birthright being our fellow Children of the Prophet Adam Alaihis Salam, our Father and of Sayyidatina Hawwa Radhiallahu Anha, our Mother.
Wabillahi Taufik Wal Hidayah.
Wassalamualaikum Warahmatulillahi Ta'ala Wabarakatuh.
Reflect on this : 'Live life as if we are going to live a thousand years.
Prepare for our Hereafter as if we are going to die tomorrow.'
