RULING ON “LIKING” PHOTOS OF WOMEN WHO ARE NOT PROPERLY COVERED

Praise be to Allah.

 For a muslim women who post their pictures on social media pages and groups is haraam for a number of reasons. Add to that the women are not properly dressed or covered and the parts of their awra are visible in the photograph than that manifolds the sin and makes it, even more, worse and prohibition more emphatic.

When a person likes something he is in a way approving of what he has liked. In simple words liking what is published on a persons social media account is kind of approving of what they do and at the very least the one who put up the picture will understand it as such, especially if the one who adds the like is a knowledgeable or religiously committed person or one who appears outwardly to be righteous and committed.

The Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “Whoever among you sees an evil action, then let him change it with his hand [by taking action]; if he cannot, then with his tongue [by speaking out]; and if he cannot, then with his heart – and that is the weakest of faith.”

Abu Dawood narrated in his Sunan (4345) from al-‘Urs ibn ‘Ameerah al-Kindi that the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “If sin is committed on earth, the one who sees it and hates it – or denounces it – is like one who was absent from it, and the one who is absent from it but approves of it is like one who sees it.”

Classed as hasan by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Jaami‘, no. 689; it was also narrated in a mursal report.

Ibn Rajab al-Hanbali said: The one who witnesses a sin and hates it in his heart is like the one who did not see it, if he is unable to denounce it or change it verbally or by taking action. The one who is not present when it happens but approves of it is the one who saw it and was able to denounce it or change it but did not do so. That is because approval of sins is one of the most abhorrent of forbidden matters, by which one fails to denounce the sin in one’s heart, which is obligatory for every Muslim and this is not waived for anybody under any circumstances whatsoever.

End quote from Jaami‘ al-‘Uloom wa’l-Hukam(2/245)

Liking Muslim Women Photos:

Hence even in liking anything on social media one must be very cautious. It is not only about liking a picture improperly dressed muslim women but anything that is not acceptable in Islam. Our each and every action matters and will be held accountable.

If a person adds a “like” for any of these pictures or the like, what expression of objection has he made towards the evil action that has been committed? None! Instead, he has accepted it and approved it and deemed it right.

And Allah knows best.

WHAT IF I DON’T WEAR HIJAB – MUSLIM SISTER ASKS

WHAT IF I DON’T WEAR HIJAB ?

QUESTION:- We are aware of hijab – covering of woman’s face and hair. Some of my friends do not cover their hair and there is an argument that if they tie their hair rather than keep it open, the degree of the sin (gunah) is smaller? Also keeping long hair open is a greater sin than keeping short hair open. Is it true? Plese help and reply.

 Praise be to Allah.

When Allah, may He be exalted, and His Messenger (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) enjoin something, it is obligatory for the Muslim to say, “We hear and we obey,” and to hasten to carry out what has been enjoined upon him. This is what is required by faith in Allah.

Allah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“It is not for a believer, man or woman, when Allah and His Messenger have decreed a matter that they should have any option in their decision. And whoever disobeys Allah and His Messenger, he has indeed strayed into a plain error”

[al-Ahzaab 33:36]

Shaykh ‘Abd al-Rahmaan al-Sa’di (may Allah have mercy on him) said:

“It is not for a believer, man or woman” means: it is not appropriate or befitting for the one who is described as a believer to do anything other than to hasten to please Allah and His Messenger, and to flee from incurring the wrath of Allah and His Messenger, and to obey their commands, and to avoid that which they have prohibited.

It is not appropriate for a believing man or a believing woman “when Allah and His Messenger have decreed a matter” and enjoined it, “that they should have any option in their decision”. They do not have the choice of whether to do it or not, rather the believing man and the believing woman know that the Messenger is dearer to them then their own selves, so they should not let their own whims and desires form a barrier between them and obeying the command of Allah and His Messenger.

 “And whoever disobeys Allah and His Messenger, he has indeed strayed into a plain error” means, an obvious error, because he has forsaken the Straight Path which leads to the reward of Allah, and has strayed to another path which leads to a painful torment. So Allah mentions first the reason for not going against the command of Allah and His Messenger, which is faith, then He mentions the deterrent for that, which is fear of going astray, which leads to punishment and humiliation. End quote.

Tafseer al-Sa’di, p. 612.

The Messenger (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) told us that the one who disobeys him is the one who does not want to enter Paradise! Al-Bukhaari (7280) narrated from Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “All of my ummah will enter Paradise except those who refuse.” They said: “O Messenger of Allah, who would refuse?” He said: “Whoever obeys me will enter Paradise and whoever disobeys me has refused.”

When the command of hijab came, the first Muslim women hastened to obey it, so much so that the women tore their clothes in order to hasten to obey this command. This is what is meant by faith.

It was narrated that ‘Aa’ishah (may Allah be pleased with her) said: May Allah have mercy on the women of the early muhaajireen. When Allah revealed the words “and to draw their veils all over Juyoobihinna (i.e. their bodies, faces, necks and bosoms)”, they tore their aprons and covered their faces with them. Narrated by al-Bukhaari in a mu’allaq report and by Abu Dawood (4102); classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh Abi Dawood.

Ad

Al-Haafiz Ibn Hajar said:

Muroot, sing. murt (translated here as “aprons”) refers to the izaar or lower garment.

Our advice to those sisters is to hasten to obey the command of Allah without any hesitation, and not to try to obey part of the command and neglect part of it. It is obligatory for a woman to cover her hair, face and all of her body, and it is not permissible for her to show any part of that in front of non-mahram men. Whoever does that is exposing herself to the threat and is lacking in faith to the extent that she is failing to respond to the command of Allah.

And Allah knows best.

RULING ON A WOMAN PUTTING HER PICTURE ON FACEBOOK

Praise be to Allah.

It is haraam for a girl to put a picture of herself on Facebook or in chat rooms or on other websites, for a number of reasons:

Pictures on Facebook : 1.   This is contrary to covering and concealment that is enjoined upon women in the Quran and Sunnah. Allah, may He be glorified and exalted, says concerning the noblest of women and the furthest of them from suspicion, namely the wives of the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him): 

Ruling on putting pics on Facebook
Ruling on putting pics on Facebook

“And when you ask (his wives) for anything you want, ask them from behind a screen, that is purer for your hearts and for their hearts”

[al-Ahzaab 33:53] 

“O Prophet! Tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to draw their cloaks (veils) all over their bodies (i.e., screen themselves completely except the eyes or one eye to see the way). That will be better, that they should be known (as free respectable women) so as not to be annoyed. And Allah is Ever OftForgiving, Most Merciful”

[al-Ahzaab 33:59]

TRENDING US STORES :

And He forbade women to speak softly, as He says (interpretation of the meaning):

“O wives of the Prophet! You are not like any other women. If you keep your duty (to Allah), then be not soft in speech, lest he in whose heart is a disease (of hypocrisy, or evil desire for adultery, etc.) should be moved with desire, but speak in an Honorable manner”

[al-Ahzaab 33:32]. 

So Allah, may He be glorified and exalted, enjoined the wives of the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him), and the believing women in general, to observe hijab, so as to purify the hearts of the believing women and to protect them from anything that may give rise to temptation or suspicion, and so as to preserve their chastity and that of His believing slaves. Once this is understood, it will become clear that for a woman to put her picture where it will be seen by righteous and evildoers alike on such websites is something that is contrary to Allah’s teachings.

2.  That opens the door to fitnah (temptation) and evil for the woman and for those who see her. How often have we heard and read painful stories caused by such things. How many pure and chaste women have fallen into the traps of those who do not fear Allah, evildoers who have tempted them with sweet words and promises until, when they had had their way with them, they turned their back on them and abandoned them with nothing but regret and loss, and perhaps shame in this world and in the Hereafter – Allah forbid. 

How many evildoers have tampered with those images and reproduced them by modern means, putting the head of a decent woman on the body of an immoral woman, then there will be great regret for what she brought upon herself and her family when regret is to no avail.

3.  With regard to what you have mentioned about some women who wear hijab believing that putting their picture in hijab is not forbidden according to Islam, if what you mean by hijab is proper shar‘i hijab that covers the face and does not show the face of the woman, then this kind of thing is not forbidden in Islam, especially when there is a need for it. But this is not what they meant, because there is no benefit in doing this. What is the point of putting a picture of a black shape in which nothing appears?!

But if what is meant is putting a picture of a woman with her face uncovered, even if she has covered the rest of her body, then we have explained that this is what leads to evil consequences that are sufficient to deem it forbidden, even if we do not say that it is obligatory for the woman to cover her face; so how about if that is obligatory? The sin in this case is multiplied and the danger is greater. By doing that she has transgressed and what the believing women have been accustomed to doing for centuries.

Al-Ghazaali (may Allah have mercy on him) said in Ihya’ ‘Uloom ad-Deen (2/53): Men throughout the ages have always had their faces uncovered and women have always gone out with their faces covered. End quote. It says something similar in Fath al-Baari, 9/337. 

Al-Haafiz Ibn Hajar (may Allah have mercy on him) said in Fath al-Baari (9/424): The custom of women in the past and more recently has been to cover their faces in front of non-mahram men. End quote.

Moreover, if everyone who has any common sense realises that the focal point of beauty and fitnah in women is the face, and this is what men want to see, and it is from this that it is judged whether a woman is beautiful or not, then publishing pictures in the manner mentioned opens the door to women for be tempted to be a source of temptation, and for them and their pictures to be treated disrespectfully, as they will be visible to anyone who wants to see them. 

And Allah knows best.

Hijaab should be loose not tight

Hijaab should be loose, not tight so that it describes any part of the body. 

The purpose of clothing is to prevent fitnah (temptation), and this can only be achieved if clothes are wide and loose (hijaab). Tight clothes, even if they conceal the colour of the skin, still describe the size and shape of the body or part of it, and create a vivid image in the minds of men. The corruption or invitation to corruption that is inherent in that is quite obvious. So the clothes must be wide.

Usaamah ibn Zayd said: “The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) gave me a thick Egyptian garment that was one of the gifts given to him by Duhyat al-Kalbi, and I gave it to my wife to wear. He said, ‘Why do I not see you wearing that Egyptian garment?’ I said, ‘I gave it to my wife to wear.’ He said, ‘Tell her to wear a gown underneath it, for I am afraid that it may describe the size of her bones.’”

Hijaab Should be loose
Hijab Should be loose

(Narrated by al-Diyaa’ al-Maqdisi in al-Ahaadeeth al-Mukhtaarah, 1/442, and by Ahmad and al-Bayhaqi, with a hasan isnaad).

Highlighting the choice of Hijaab being a legitimate right of women, politically empowers them and exposes the falsehood being propagated by the secular extremists that the hijaab degrades women and is forced upon them.

It is not the cloth that opress the woman, it is the ignorance about Islam!

A sister wrote once : “I watched a video lately about … how to tie a Hijaab!!!!!

YES! Now there is an “art” of tying the Hijaab, and it’s not al Hijaab al shar’i (the Islamic Hijaab) of course, but this is a “stylish” Hijab which shaytan beautify it in front of them and whispered them to wear it!!
It comes with different colors and looks! Yes!

There are different ways to wear this “Hijaab”:

There is one with layers, one with big flower(s) one the side, one with very attractive colors, one with accessories, one which looks like camel hump, one which sparkles, one with golden and silver design, etc, …. and many many others which take much time to be tied. Unfortunately, many sisters spend hours watching videos to learn the “proper” steps of tying this kind of “Hijab”!! Some others even go to hair stylish (in some Arabic countries) to tie these scarves (in “special” occasions) and pay money for that!

hijaab

The funny thing is that these “Hijabs” attract attention more than the natural uncover hair does!!! But is this the Hijab Allah ordered Muslimat to wear in Qur’an?!!! Does this “Hijab” please Allah? Of course not!!! Why does Allah order Muslimat to wear Hijab: to attract eyes or to protect her from them?! If the scarf the Muslimah wears isn’t loose enough and does not cover her arms and chest so what will be the purpose of wearing it?!! THINK!

Hijaab will close only for you the doors of Hell….

if you wear Hijaab wear it properly and if you don’t then I’m not saying sisters who don’t wear hijaab is going to hell as that will be very ignorant statement, and it is obligatory on our sisters to wear it and we make dua for the sisters struggling instead of looking down at them. This article is just a support to those who are being oppressed and mocked at for wearing the hijab. Some sisters wear hijaab and don’t pray, some don’t wear hijaab but pray and some sisters wear the hijab and pray, so aim to wear the hijaab and pray always.

May Allah Subhan wa ta’ala bless all our sisters, you guys are the back bone of this Ummah so hold tight to the rope of Allah Subhan wa ta’ala…
?Aameen ya Allah?

Hijab is my obedience to Allah

Hijab includes the way a person talks, walks, looks and thinks. All of it should be done modestly and it applies to both men and women.

WHAT IS HIJAB?

Whenever we hear or read the word HIJAB, the first thing that comes in our mind is WOMEN. Relating HIJAB only to WOMEN Is absolutely wrong.. In Quran, ALLAH first orders men to observe HIJAB and then to women.

ALLAH SAYS:

“Say to the believing men that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty: that will make for greater purity for them: and Allah is well acquainted with all that they do.”
[Q 24:30]
"And say to the believing women that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty; that they should not display their beauty and ornaments except what must ordinarily appear therof; that they should draw their veils over their bosoms and not display their beauty except to their husbands, their fathers, their husbands' fathers, their sons, their husbands' sons, their brothers, or their brothers' sons or their sisters' sons, or their women or the servants whom their right hands possess, or male servants free of physical needs, or small children who have no sense of the shame of sex, and that they should not strike their feet in order to draw attention to their hidden ornaments. And O you Believers, turn you all together towards Allah, that you may attain Bliss.”
(Quran 24:31).
Hijab 7

Hijab/Niqab is not only about clothes. Hijab includes moral conduct, behavior, attitude, and intentions of individual. Hijab also means lowering the gaze to avoid the sins of the eye and the heart.

The Hijab includes the way a person walks, talks, looks and thinks. All of it should be done modestly and applies to both men and women.

 It (hijab) is not an Oppression, Women in Islam worth more than the diamond itself.

Hijab 2

Dear Sisters :

Even though a man is responsible for his gaze, you are responsible for what you give him to gaze at… So let’s wear your Hijab properly and lower your gaze too…!  

Dear Sisters :

Fulfill your duties towards Allah because we were created solely to worship Him. Observe the Hijab for the sake of Allah before death comes unannounced.

“Hijab is not a piece of cloth on your head it’s a way of life”

hijab 5

WHAT THE HIJAB IS 

♦ An act of Obedience to The Creator

♦ An act of Honor & Dignity

♦ An act of Belief & Faith

♦ An act of Modesty

♦ An act of Purity

♦ An act of Bashfulness

♦ An act of Righteousness

♦ A Shield

 WHAT THE HIJAB IS NOT.. 

♦ It is NOT something new. Muslim women follow the example of righteous women in the past such as Mary, the mother of Jesus (a.s)

♦ It is NOT a symbol of oppression

♦ It is NOT a means to restrict a woman’s freedom to express her views and opinion, or to have an education and a career.

♦ It is NOT an act of defiance, confrontation or protest to non-Muslims

♦ It is NOT a portable prison.

Sisters !
Hijab Protect You from Evil Eyes..

Hijab 80

The Hijab is a Muslimah’s shield from the evil world.

Every Muslim Woman should arise love for Hijab in her daughter’s heart since childhood. So when they Grow up they should consider this hijaab as a part of their dress. But to do this a MOTHER should set an Example in front of Her Daughter.

Hijab In The Al-Quran And Sunnah

The Requirements of Women’s Hijab in Accordance with the Qur’an, the Authentic Sunnah and the Practice of the Pious Predecessors.

Introduction:

This essay will attempt to briefly yet concisely enumerate the basic requirements regarding Muslim women’s dress (Hijaab) as stipulated by the Shari’ah (Divine Law) of Islam.

The term Hijaab, includes not only dress and covering the body, but methods of behavior before members of the same and/or opposite sex, promoting privacy for females and prohibiting loose intermingling between males and females, and thereby encouraging modesty, decency, chastity and above all, respect and worship of Allah.

hijab 1

Minor differences exist among the scholars regarding the actual number of the requirements because of varying methods used by them in codifying. The ones mentioned here represent the ones agreed upon by the overwhelming majority of scholars and are all solidly backed by firm evidence taken from the Qur’an, the Sunnah and the practice of the Sahabah (the Companions).

Some Claim Wearing Hijab means going back to some prehistoric period. This is not true moreover, such people fail to realize that actually dressing half naked means going back to The Stone Age…!!!

If someone criticizes your beard or your Hijab, just remember you’re here to please Allah, not the people.

Hijab is the cover we wear not only for our body, but for our heart & soul too. Hijab should inspire us to be modest in every walk of life.

WHAT ELSE DOES THE SHAITAN WHISPERS IN YOUR EARS, MY SISTERS? :-

1. If you will wear Hijab you will not get Married.
2. If you will wear Hijab you will not get any attention and the boys will like your classmate, who is with out a Hijab.
3. If you will wear Hijab you will not get Job.
4. If you will wear Hijab people will not call you Beautiful.
5. If you will wear Hijab your Friends will Leave you.
6. If you will wear Hijab you will Look Old.
7. If you will wear Hijab you will be considered Out Dated.

A women is so much more
beautiful when she is modest.
She is respected, and her body
is not flesh to be leered at. She
has style, good character and
etiquette. She’s not seen for her
shape but for her mind. Her true
essence is shown, and she
acknowledges her value and
importance as a woman.
Modesty is beauty……………

DUA:
Ya Allah! I turn to you and ask
you to grant me a spouse that

If removing the Hijaab is a condition for your marriage, avoid him. Love is something that should enrich your values, not compromise them.

hijab 99

When Shaytan told her:

“Who would ask for your hand in marriage while you are wearing Hijaab?!
How can anyone love to marry you while you are wearing Jilbab?
Why don’t you use makeup to show your beauty?
Why don’t you attract boy’s eyes to your femininity?”

She Should reply to him:

“By wearing Hijaab, I am obeying the One Who created me And obedience of Allah has never limited my freedom but it set me free i am not a piece of candy which attracts eager eyes Hijaab preserve women dignity, that what all girls should realize!

Hijaab is the crown of my chastity It is the secret of my liberty The one who will marry me, will be proud of my purity He will cherish me for he will be pious and wise He will hold my hand and take me right to paradise”
IN SHA ALLAH.

hijab 8

A Beard or Hijaab doesn’t represent how religious you are. But it’s a reminder that even when your Imaan is low you still belong to Islam.

Today many Muslim women wears Hijaab. Some of them have even been wearing the hijaab, but still far from the teachings of Islam. For example, some wearing the veil, but hijaab does not cover the chest. Worse yet, she’s wearing a tight shirt and pants so that the curve of her body clearly visible.


Finally peculiarities arise, to wear the hijaab but why look attractive ?
Sometimes though there are clothes that cover the entire body, but the fiber fabric is so seldom exactly like gauze or transparent plastic, see-through cloth. As a result of the body or skin color clearly visible as if naked.

Hijaab is the veil that has to be drawn over our body, our behavior and our speech. If we observe the proper ‘physical’ rules of hijaab, yet have no constraint on our deeds and actions, and involve in haram activities, what purpose has the covering served?


Dear sisters, Hijaab must be loose and not revealing the shape of your body, it must not be see through, it must not be too eye catching and it must not resemble the clothing of a man or the non-Muslims. Wearing it is a command by Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala, we, as Muslimat, have to obey this rule or face punishment.

Hijab: The Camel Hump Hijab Style

“HIJAB” “BEWARE MY SISTERS IN ISLAM, AVOID WEARING MODERN WAYS OF HIJAB’S, KEEP IT NICE, SIMPLE AND WELL COVERED.”

Many Muslimahs are taking this trend and forgetting that it is wrong for them to wear the Hijab in the camel hump style. The bigger you do the hump the more you look like an alien! Muslimahs that wear the camel hump style are cursed.

The Prophet  Sallallahu alayhi wasallam also stated,

“There will be in the last of my Ummah, scantily dressed women, the hair on the top of their heads like a camel’s hump (hijab). Curse them, for verily they are cursed.” [At-Tabarani and Sahih Muslim]

camel hump hijab forbidden in islam

Abu Hurairah relates that the Prophet Sallallahu alayhi wasallam said,

“There are two categories among the inhabitants of Hell whom I have not encountered. The first are people who carry whips like the tails of cows and beat the people with them. The second are women, clothed yet naked, drawn to licentiousness and enticing others to it, their heads like the swaying humps of camels (hijab). They will neither enter Paradise nor even smell its fragrance, though its fragrance can be found to a great distance.” [Sahih Muslim]

(Hijab) Think about the way you dress. Is it to please others? Or is it to please Allah?

Islam, the name of our beautiful religion, simply means “submission” to Allah alone. He is aware of our intentions, which must be aimed to be done for Him, simply due to the fact that He is our Creator and He has ordered it. As is said in the Qur’an,

“And He is Allah, [the only deity] in the heavens and earth. He knows your secret and what you make public, and He knows that which you earn.” [6:3]

wrong hijab forbidden in islam

Allah clearly illustrates how a woman should wear (hijab) it properly in the Qur’an

“And say to the believing women to lower their gazes, and to guard their private parts, and not to expose their beauty except what is apparent of it, and to extend their head covers to cover their chests (hijab), and not to display their beauty except to their husbands, or their fathers, or their husband’s fathers, or their sons, or their husband’s sons, or their brothers, or their brothers’ sons, or their sisters’ sons, or their womenfolk, or what their right hands rule (slaves), or from the men who have no physical desire, or the small children who are not aware of the private aspects of women, and not to stomp their feet (on the ground) so as to make known what they hide of their adornments (jewelry).

And turn to Allah in repentance together, Oh Believers, so that you may succeed.” [24:31]

PLEASE SAVE YOURSELF FROM THE TORMENT OF HELL FIRE !!

MAY ALLAH HELP US ALL, AMEEN…

HIJAB IN ISLAM

Islam is the religion which upliftment the women. There is not a single rule in Islam which prevents the upliftment of women but in the name of upliftment Islam doesn’t believe in degrading women.

If you see history women was only used for sex and pleasure and today if you see the western world they are talking about the uplifting of women have actually degrade her. Today western world talking about women liberalization, its nothing but a disguise form of exploitation of the body, of degradation of the honor.

Islam never wants to prevent the women from upliftment but i don’t know of a single job or a single competition in which a women doesn’t interact with a men.

All the jobs which involves the unnecessary interaction of men aren’t jobs which are fit for the women. There is not a single modest job which i know which prevents the women about the modesty role. If there is a job which prevents you from doing the Hijab, Hijab not only on the body not only the clothe, the way you talk, the way you behave and the way you thinking.

All this comes in the Hijab aren’t good for you and when the western world talks about equality, i ask them when men and women are equal so why don’t we have a boxing match between men and women together, they are equal. Even they are agree that they are not equal.

When there is a boxing match why don’t they participate together. Aren’t they degrading the women. Yes or No so you realize these people they have their own way of thinking.

Allah the almighty has made the men and women different. Physiologically different, biologically different, depending upon the roles what they have been given.

Allah the almighty has given the do’s and dont’s for men and women and not that a men and women cannot interact but unnecessary interaction has to be avoided and in the western world when they sit for examination men and women sit together so there they consider them equal but when it comes to boxing match they don’t consider them equal so when the western world can differentiate that here they can part together and here they can’t  part together.

Why can’t our creator Allah who knows the best. Unnecessary interactions i call it foot steps of devil and Allah says in the Quran in (Surah Baqarah: Chapter 2: verse 168) O you who believe do not follow the foot steps of devil.

Most of the places where Allah says do not follow the foot steps of devil and i will give you a one example of foot steps of devel that suppose there is a average Muslim and if a lady comes and say come let’s spend a night together and he say spending the night Oh its haram. Not allowed and a same average Muslim if a lady phones, speaking to a girl on a phone.

What is the problem so he speak to a girl on a phone and after a few call she said let’s have a coffee in my college. He thinks going with a girl for coffee, its not a big deal and after some time she says lets have a dinner in restaurant and he thinks going for a dinner with girl, no problem and then she says let’s spend a night together, spending a night together, no problem. These are the foot steps of devil. Its not mentioned in the Quran, i am giving my own example. These are the foot steps of devil therefore stopping in the first level is better.

When its a requirement, when you have to speak to a men in a emergency than yes you can. Suppose there is a lady who get sick and there is a gents doctor, yes they can go to a gents doctor that doesn’t men you can’t speak to a gents doctor. When require you can go but with lowering your gaze, with modesty but unnecessary gossiping like what they are doing in colleges.

In colleges they gossip very common is prohibited and do you know according to a stats of USA more than 90% of women before they passed the school, they have lost their virginity and same in UK, even in mumbai i was shocked more than 50% of girls before they pass their school they lost their virginity. I was shocked. Why, because of having a boy friend and girl friend. Its so common that if you don’t have a boy friend or girl friend you will be considered as a abnormal.

These are the foot steps of devil and we want to uplift the women and these people in the name of art and culture, they want to sell their daughters and mothers on screen and someone told me about the ad which won the award and its of  BMW car. Its a very famous car in youngsters. There is a girl standing in bikini before the car and it say test drive her now. Who the girl or the car.

What are they doing? they are selling their daughters and we Muslims we don’t want that and in the name of upliftment we don’t allow our daughters, we don’t allow our sisters. We love them, we respect them so by now you must have understand that Islam doesn’t degrade the women. Its uplift them.

All praise be to Allaah.
The saheeh evidence indicates that a woman is not allowed to travel except with a Mahram. This is the greatness of Islam and the perfection of it. It protects honour and dignity of women and strives to protect them and guard them against the causes of temptation and deviation.

The evidence includes the hadeeth narrated by al-Bukhaari (1729) and Muslim (2391) from Ibn ‘Abbaas (may Allaah be pleased with him) who said: The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “No woman should travel except with a mahram, and no man should enter upon her unless there is a mahram with her.” A man said: “O Messenger of Allaah, I want to go out with such and such an army and my wife wants to go for Hajj.” He said: “Go out with her.”

Based on the above evidence it is not permissible for a woman to travel alone without a mahram, to seek knowledge.

She should acquire knowledge that she needs in many ways like the internet, asking scholars and by means that are available to her.

The Standing Committee was asked: Can a woman go out to study medicine, if it is obligatory or permissible, if doing so will lead to the following things no matter how much she tries to avoid them:

a) Mixing with men, such as speaking to the patients, the tutor of medicine and on public transport.

b) Traveling from a country such as Sudan to Egypt, even if the journey will take only hours, and not three days.

c) Is it permissible for her to stay alone without a mahram in order to learn medicine, if she is going to stay with a group of women, along with the circumstances described above?

They replied:

Firstly: if her going out to learn medicine will lead to her mixing with men during her study or when riding in mixed transportation that will lead to fitnah (temptation), then it is not permissible for her to do that, because guarding her honour is an individual obligation, but learning medicine is a communal obligation, and an individual obligation takes precedence over a communal obligation.

As for merely speaking to a patient or a teacher of medicine, that is not haraam, rather what is haraam is making the voice soft and appealing when speaking to him, which may tempt those in whose heart is the sickness of evil and hypocrisy. This does not apply only to learning medicine.

Secondly: If she has a mahram who can travel with her so that she can learn medicine, or teach it, or treat a patient, that is permissible. If she does not have a husband or mahram who can travel with her, then it is haraam, even if the journey is by plane, because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “No woman should travel except with a mahram.” Saheeh – agreed upon. And because of what we have stated above about the interests of protecting honour taking precedence over the interests of learning medicine or teaching it, etc.

Thirdly: If her staying with a trustworthy group of women is so that she may learn medicine or teach it, or treat women, then it is permissible, but if there is the fear of fitnah (temptation) because of not having a husband or mahram with her, then it is not permissible. If she is going to treat men, that is not permissible unless it is a case of necessity and she is not alone with a man. End quote from Fataawa al-Lajnah al-Daa’imah (12/178).

And Allaah knows best.

1. Her Obedience to the Creator: A practicing Muslim man loves to have a practicing Muslim wife; who knows that the life of this world is nothing but a test from her Lord; giving her an opportunity to come closer and closer to Allah, doing more and more good deeds to please Him Azza wa jal, restricting herself from the desires of her inner self that go against the will of her Creator.

But as for him who feared standing before his Lord, and restrained himself from impure evil desires, and lusts. Verily, Paradise will be his abode. (Surah An- Naaziyaat: 40-41)

2. Her Haya (Modesty/Shyness): Haya is one of the most significant factors of a woman’s personality. Haya according to a believer’s nature refers to a bad and uneasy feeling accompanied by embarrassment, caused by one’s fear of being exposed or censured for some unworthy or indecent conduct.

Prophet Sallallahu alaihiwasallam said: “Haya comes from Eman; Eman leads to Paradise. Obscenity comes from antipathy; and antipathy leads to the fire.” (Sahih Al-Bukhari)

A Muslim woman feels shy to do anything that would displease her Lord in any aspect. She has haya in her talk, she has haya in her gaze, she has haya in her clothing, she has haya in her walk. Her haya in her talk is that she is not soft in her speech but speaks honorably. Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala says (interpretation of the meaning):

“O wives of the Prophet! You are not like any other women. If you keep your duty (to Allah), then be not soft in speech, lest he in whose heart is a disease (of hypocrisy, or evil desire for adultery) should be moved with desire, but speak in an honorable manner” (Surah Al-Ahzaab:32)

Her haya in her gaze is that she does not look at what Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala has prohibited for her to look. Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala says (interpretation of the meaning):

And tell the believing women to lower their gaze (from looking at forbidden things), and protect their private parts (from illegal sexual acts)… (Verse continues) (Surah An-Nur: 31)

Her haya in her clothing is that she does not reveal to others what Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala has forbidden for her to reveal. Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala says (interpretation of the meaning):

…And not to show off their adornment except only that which is apparent (like both eyes for necessity to see the way or outer dress like veil, gloves, head-cover, apron, etc.), and to draw their veils all over Juyubihinna (i.e. their bodies, faces, necks and bosoms,) and not to reveal their adornment except to their husbands, or their fathers, or their husband’s fathers, or their sons, or their husband’s sons, or their brothers or their brother’s sons, or their sister’s sons, or their (Muslim) women (i.e. their sisters in Islâm), or the (female) slaves whom their right hands possess, or old male servants who lack vigor, or small children who have no sense of the feminine sex.. (Verse Continues) (Surah An-Nur: 31)

Her haya in her walk is that she walks modestly without attracting others attention towards herself. Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala says (interpretation of the meaning): .

..And let them not stamp their feet so as to reveal what they hide of their adornment. And all of you beg Allâh to forgive you all, O believers, that you may be successful. (Surah An-Nur: 31)

Abu Usayd al-Ansari narrated that he heard Allah’s Messenger Sallallahu alaihiwasallam say to the women on his way out of the mosque when he saw men and women mixing together on their way home: ‘Give way (i.e., walk to the sides) as it is not appropriate for you to walk in the middle of the road.’ Thereafter, women would walk so close to the wall that their dresses would get caught on it.

(Narrated by Abu Dawood in “Kitab al-Adab min Sunanihi, Chapter: Mashyu an-Nisa Ma’ ar-Rijal fi at-Tariq)

A woman who has the knowledge of Allah’s commandment to preserve her modesty, submitting herself to the will of her creator, even after having the desire to be praised for her beauty, is without doubt beloved to Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala and as well as to all good believing men.

3. Her Beauty:
Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala made women beautiful in the sight of men. It’s just that some human beings are more attracted towards some than others. Aishah RadhiyAllahu anha said: “I heard the Prophet Sallallahu alaihiwasallam saying: ‘Souls are like conscripted soldiers; those whom they recognize, they get along with, and those whom they do not recognize, they will not get along with.’” (Sahih Al-Bukhari)

Al-Qurtubi said: “Although they are all souls, they differ in different ways, so a person will feel an affinity with souls of one kind, and will get along with them because of the special quality that they have in common.

So we notice that people of all types will get along with those with whom they share an affinity, and will keep away from those who are of other types. [This is like the old saying goes, “Birds of a feather flock together”] For a believing man, a Muslim woman’s beauty is not just how her nose looks or how big her eyes are, but her modesty, purity of heart, and innocence make her look beautiful as well. Also Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala makes people whom He loves, pleasing to others.

“When Allah loves someone he calls to Jibreel Alaihissalaam saying, ‘O Jibreel, I love such and such a person, so love him.’ Then Jibreel will call to the (angels) of the heavens, ‘Allah loves such and such a person so love him.’ And the angels will love [that person]. And then Allah will place the pleasure in the hearts of the people towards this person.” (Sahih Al-Bukhari and Muslim)

4. Her Intellect/playfulness: Intellect and playfulness are two qualities of women highly liked by men. Every man likes to have an intelligent wife who can advise and support him in day to day matters. Khadija bint Khuwaylid RadhiyAllahu anha was one of the most beloved wives of Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him).

She supported Allah’s messenger (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) at the very beginning of his Prophethood when Jibreel alaihissalaam brought the first revelation to him. Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) always admired her and remembered her even long after her death. A playful wife is a joy and pleasure to a man’s heart.

Prophet Sallallahu alaihiwasallam recommended Jabir bin ‘Abdullah to marry a virgin so that the two could play with each other and amuse each other. Narrated Jabir bin ‘Abdullah: “My father died and left seven or nine girls and I married a matron.

Allah’s Apostle said to me, “O Jabir! Have you married?” I said, “Yes.” He said, “A virgin or a matron?” I replied, “A matron.” he said, “Why not a virgin, so that you might play with her and she with you, and you might amuse her and she amuse you.” (Hadith continued) (Sahih Al- Bukhari)

5. Her Truthfulness: Being truthful and honest is an essential quality of a believer. ‘Abdullah ibn Mas’ood RadhiyAllahu anh said: The Messenger of Allah Sallallahu alaihiwasallam said: “I urge you to be truthful, for truthfulness leads to righteousness, and righteousness leads to Paradise.

A man will continue to be truthful and seek to speak the truth until he is recorded with Allah as speaker of truth (Siddeeq). And beware of lying, for lying leads to immorality and immorality leads to Hell; a man will continue to tell lies until he is recorded with Allah as a liar.” (Sahih Al-Bukhari and Muslim)

A person who is known to lie repeatedly loses his trust. And if that happens in case of a marital relationship the whole relationship falls apart. A woman who is known to be a “Siddeeqah” certainly has a higher status in a Muslim man’s heart.

6. Her Obedience: Allah Subhanahu wa ta’ala made man protector and maintainer of the woman and enjoined upon her to obey him in all the matters that do not go against Quran and Sunnah. Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala says (interpretation of the meaning):

“Men are the protectors and maintainers of women, because Allah has made one of them to excel the other, and because they spend (to support them) from their means” (Surah An-Nisa’: 34)

The Messenger of Allah Sallallahu alaihiwasallam said, “The best women is she who when you look at her, she pleases you, when you command her she obeys you, and when you are absent, she protects her honor and your property.” (At-Tabarani, Ibn Majah)

7. Her Patience: Patience is a characteristic that can never be praised enough. A woman who remains patient at the times of hardship and relies on the help and mercy of Allah is without a doubt a beloved servant of Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala. Allah says (interpretation of the meaning):
“And Allah loves As-Saabiroon (the patient)” (Surah Aal Imran: 146)

8. Her Cooking: Delicious food is without a doubt weakness of men. It’s an old saying that “The Way to a Man’s Heart is through his Stomach”. We also know that one of Prophet’s (Sallallahu alaihiwasallam) wives used to cook food that he liked a lot and due to that Aishah radhiyAllahu anha would get jealous, because she didn’t know how to cook that.

9. Her Contentment with Rizq: No man likes to have a woman who is always complaining about how less her husband earns or how rich her other friends are. A good Muslimah is the one who thank Allah for what He has blessed her with and she is thankful to her husband for what he provides her with. Abu Hurairah RadhiyAllahu anh reported: The Prophet Sallallahu alaihiwasallam said, “Richness is not the abundance of wealth, rather it is self-sufficiency.” (Sahih Al-Bukhari and Muslim)

10. Good Manners: A woman of good manners is a blessing from Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala. When she speaks, she speaks honorably, why she deals with others she deals with them kindly. She is polite with elders, loving to children, and good to her fellow folks. It is related by ‘Abdullah bin Amr that the Prophet Sallallahu alaihiwasallam said: “The best of you are those who possess the best of manners.” (Sahih Al-Bukhari and Muslim)

CAN A MUSLIM WOMAN LOOK FOR HER LIFE PARTNER HERSELF?

Praise be to Allah.

Firstly:

The Muslim woman must know that she is obliged to wear hijaab and observe proper Islamic hijaab at all times. It is not permissible for a woman to make a wanton display of herself (tabarruj). Tabarruj is a major sin for which the one who does it deserves the wrath and punishment of Allah.  A woman, as the saying goes, is a jewel, and when she is shown to people and makes a wanton display of herself she loses her value.

So I advise every Muslim woman to adhere to proper Islamic hijaab, which is pleasing to Allah and is an act of obedience to Him, and is a means of Allah guiding His slave and making things easier for him.

Secondly:

With regard to marriage, it may be obligatory if a man or woman longs for marriage and fears falling into immoral ways. It is also the Sunnah of the Prophets (peace be upon them).

Allah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“And indeed We sent Messengers before you (O Muhammad), and made for them wives and offspring”

[al-Ra’d 13:38]

Muslim Woman
Muslim Woman


Thirdly:

There is a difference between a Muslim woman looking for a husband and her mixing with and talking to men for that purpose, and meeting by accident a man who she thinks is a potential husband. The former is contrary to modesty, for a woman is required to be of modest character and shy, which is an adornment and beauty for women; the virgin is the epitome of modesty as it says in the hadeeth of Abu Sa’eed al-Khudri (may Allah be pleased with him): “The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) used to be more shy than the virgin in her seclusion, and if he disliked something it would be known from his face.”

Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 5751; Muslim, 2320

Muslim Woman :

A woman can do something better than that, which is to make du’aa’ asking Allah to give her a good and righteous husband. Du’aa’ is one of the best things with which a Muslim may equip himself and the best way in which a Muslim may seek to meet his needs. She can also speak to some of her Muslim sisters whose religious commitment and honesty she trusts to tell her of someone who can tell a young Muslim man who wants to get married about a Muslim girl. This is better than her doing something that is contrary to modesty.

Fourthly:

Undoubtedly the one who told you to take off the hijab and that that is better than wearing it is wrong. How can a woman give up her religious commitment and hijab and ignore something that Allah has enjoined upon her and said that if she forsakes it then she will deserve the wrath and punishment of Allah and will not be granted His support?

The Muslim woman must adhere to this virtue which many Muslim women have forsaken, for it is the symbol of the Muslim woman, a sign of her commitment, sincere faith and piety.

I advise every Muslim women to fear Allah and to adhere to hijab, and Allah will help her and make her life easier for her. And Allah is the One Whose help we seek.

And Allah knows best.
