Response to French President and Muslims on HIJAB

It has been a debate on Dubai’s purposed laws of woman dress code on public places on one of the blogs on facebook. I have been on with my view point there. There are many people who say that it is as unfair as French President’s policy for HIJAB (Muslim Woman’s Head Cover). I am really surprised people want us to bear the cost of their ignorance.

In Muslim world woman is not the commodity, she is the mother, sister, wife and daughter. Our religion is not capitalism that makes human being a tool of their tools. Yes we accept that there are many issues connected to the woman in Muslim society going unfair but it doesn’t represent our religion but our illiterate people. We are working it out and we are sure we will come to a shiny conclusion. This doesn’t means that laws of Quran for woman are irrational or illogical. In fact these are not the laws of Quran but BIBLE and other religious books also.

The moves of Muslim country’s governments to enforce Islamic Laws are not unfair but when French President by pass the Bible, so it is more unfair. Liberty, Democracy and Modernism are simply the terms they are using to hide their unfairness. I recommend Muslim Woman to be patience. There is no need to be violent or over critical. You just have to hit the deck by dialogue and making every one (in your respective societies) aware that the core principles of Islam are same as in all the religions of the world. Islam is not the new religion but the continuity of all religions before it.

Today I don’t want to write my own thinking and words; today I am really remembering JESUS CHRIST. He is definitely one of the greatest messengers of God. He worked a lot hardest to give message of peace and understanding of God’s will to humanity. As a Muslim, my faith shall not be complete until I endorsed Jesus Christ as one of the prophets and messengers of God.

Below are some verses of Bible for French President and all those who think Islam close the doors for woman by Hijab, dress code and some other aspects. In fact Muslim woman need to play a vital role in Islamic society as per instructions of Quran.

(NIV, 1 Timothy 2:9-10) NEWTESTAMENT
I also want women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or expensive clothes, but with good deeds, appropriate for women who profess to worship God.

(NIV, 1 Peter 3:2-5) NEWTESTAMENT
Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes. Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight. For this is the way the holy women of the past who put their hope in God used to make themselves beautiful.

Deuteronomy 22:5 ESV / 10 helpful votes
“A woman shall not wear a man's garment, nor shall a man put on a woman's cloak, for whoever does these things is an abomination to the Lord your God.”

1 Corinthians 11:7;
“For a man indeed ought not to cover [his] head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man.”

1 Corinthians 11:8;
“For the man is not of the woman; but the woman of the man.”

1 Corinthians 11:9;
“Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man.”

1 Corinthians 11:10;
“For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head because of the angels.”

Likewise also that women should adorn themselves in respectable apparel, with modesty and self-control, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly attire,

1 Corinthians 6:19-20 ESV / 5 helpful votes
Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.

Corinthians 11:5 ESV / 4 helpful votes
But every wife who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head, since it is the same as if her head were shaven.

Corinthians 6:9-10 ESV / 2 helpful votes
Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God

First Epistle to the Corinthians, chapter 11. Read verses 3-10.
But I would have you know that the head of every man is Christ and the head of the woman is the man, and the head of Christ is God. Every man praying or prophesying with his head covered, disgraces his head. But every woman praying or prophesying with her head uncovered disgraces her head, for it is the same as if she were shaven. For if a woman is not covered, let her be shaven. But if it is a disgrace for a woman to have her hair cut off or her head shaved, let her cover her head. A man indeed ought not to cover his head, because he is the image and glory of God. But woman is the glory of man. For man was not created for woman, but woman for man. This is why the woman ought to have a sign of authority over her head, because of the angels.

Above mentioned verses of BIBLE is just the beginning of our work for the TASK of creating understanding in the mankind. In my capacity I protest the move by French government to restrict Muslim woman to wear HIJAB. I recommend French government to consult BIBLE and don’t go against JESUS CHRIST message. Give a gesture to the whole world that how much you love JESUS CHRIST and let us implement the message of JESUS i.e. also from Prophet Mohammad S.A.W.

It is my humble request from the western world, their people, religious scholars, intellects, philosophers and writers to be honest and raise their voice. It is their responsibility to explore BIBLE so they could foster their next generations in its light at least. If you think Islam’s way of life is not perfect, so we are not hurt. Muslims who have faith never hurt on any thing people said against them. Leave our concepts, just consult with your books and understand. I am sure if all of the people of the world will study their respective sacred scriptures (remitted by God) and implement it on their life, no one will find ISLAM too far.

It is the responsibility of the Muslims, not to undertake the act and thinking of hatred for Non Muslims. These are just acts from rulers of the countries. Even don’t disrespect these rulers. We don’t need to put any vulgar remarks on French President’s wife. God will not like this kind of attitude. It is the time for whole Muslim World to realize their responsibility. Every one is hopeless from your ability to lead. But I am sure with no doubt in my mind; the key of the doors of new era of light for the world is in your hand. Be good with people who restrict you from practicing your concepts, respect those who disgrace you, love those who hate you. You will win the hearts one day. This is the message of Islam and this is real Muslims all about (if they apply the laws of Islam on them)

It is the time for the Muslim World to be peaceful and don’t involve in any conspiracy of violence or hatred. We have to involve in dialogue and get the people convince on the realities. If you are right no one in this world can prove you wrong. Just stand on your place with no violence and no undue protest.

If you observe, after every few months, there is either a movie, a cartoon, or a comment from a notable personality degrading either Islam or Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)...all these events are meant to demoralize the muslim masses by putting them into inferiority complex... Its time muslims turn back to their roots. You cannot defend yourself unless you know who you are, where you're from and where you're destined to go. My advice to the muslims is to laugh away these statements, rather ignore it as an act of illiteracy from an apparently educated man. Here's more verses from the Bible that can help our Christian brothers learn who was Prophet Muhammad(PBUH), his significance and the totality of his message "Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the "Comforter" will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you." (John 16:7) "I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. However when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will show you things to come. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you." (John 16: 12-14) Now it is upto our Christian brothers to decide who is the "Comforter" and who is the "he" who has been stressed upon repeatedly in the later verse. May Allah guide us all...Aameen...

Good this shows the importance of hijab not only in islam also in christianity. Surah Al-Ahzab ayat no 59 say "O Prophet! Say to your wives and your daughters and the women of the faithful to draw their outergarments (jilbabs) close around themselves; that is better that they will be recognized and not annoyed. And God is ever Forgiving, Gentle." I will request to all muslim women to act upon this ayat and wear hijab.May ALLAH bless all of us AMEEN.
