59. O Prophet! Tell thy wives and daughters, and the believing women, that they should cast their outer garments over their persons (when abroad): that is most convenient, that they should be known (as such) and not molested. And Allah is Oft- Forgiving, Most Merciful.
Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.
In Islam, the status of the mother is raised to be nobler than the father three times over.
This honoring of the believing womenfolk in Islam came to be when women were mistreated and abused in the Age of Jahiliyyah @ Ignorance.
There are those amongst the Kuffars of today who claim that Islam oppresses its women.
This interview dispels just such a preposterous claim.
In this Age of Fitnah @ Trials, we see the status of womenfolk all around the world be reduced to nothing more than mere objects of pleasure by the so called 'civilizations' of the liberal West and now the scourge is fast spreading throughout Asia as well.
Whether one likes it or not, this growing disrespect for the chastity and honor of the womenfolk of the world stems from the way people have slowly but surely discarded all known norms of modesty in their life's.
It started when mankind started to sort of get fed up with the way, society dressed. From being all enclosed, gradually the tendencies of mankind to go one up from the rest of the social establishment resulted in adopting 'modern' forms of liberalizing themselves from the strict protocols of established society.
Those who have researched about the changing times and evolution of the way womenfolk in the West first dressed conservatively back in the olden days will surely see that as mankind is said to have progressed, the attire of their womenfolk started to change with the fashions of the said modern ways as well.
To be continued.
