Today, I was browsing some Islamic lectures on youtube and I found a very informative Islamic sermon about beard and hijaab by Maulana Jan Ali Shah Kazmi. In our so called Islamic civilization the perception of hijaab and beard is not extensive and don’t consider to be laudable. This lecture is an eye opener for those who don’t deem the Islam and its values and taboo. Below is the link for the lecture.
Now a days hijab is regarding as the most difficult attempt to follow. As we are leading in a Muslim society but as far as government is concerned there is no restriction on the women to cover their head as we can see in other Muslim countries, restricted their women.
If we see in the light of Quran and Sunnah We have many evidences and restriction for women to wear hijab.
Surah Ahzab ayah 59 says,
O Prophet! Say to your wives and your daughters and the women of the faithful to draw their outer garments (jilbabs) close around themselves; that is better that they will be recognized and not annoyed. And God is ever Forgiving, Gentle.
Another question is arising now a days is what is the reason behind to wear hijab? I asked many a women most of them replied the same that they wear hijab because they find it comfortable, they don’t have to change their clothes while going through markets and etc. But the real reason is that we wear hijab because Allah SWT has commanded it. We should not regard it as modesty or protection. So don’t listen to Satan and his whispers in your mind, not let him rule your life. Once u have to come in your life to wear hijab, then YOU have to set a day and JUST DO IT…………
