NIQABI AND LIBERTY
Islam, as considered by most of the people, is a religion which oppresses women or today’s world portrays Muslim women are worthy of nothing. They must expand their area of knowledge and should understand that Islam is a religion of JUSTICE. Man and women are the two face of a single coin, they are given equal rights wherever needed like education, employment, gaining knowledge. But women are no equal to men because they are capable of giving birth, they go through menstruation every month. They are no like men. Though pre-historic things witnessed of a man being the head of family and women be under him. But religion gives direction to both as an equal part to handle family and guide the other if one goes astray.
Religion gives freedom to women within the limits of modesty i.e. they are allowed to gain knowledge, go to college, enhance their talent, choosing their area of interest and excel in it. There is no limit of the selected area of interest it can be sports, academics, anything the condition is they are not allowed to expose their body as it may attract unnecessary attention from opposite gender. Body exposure is limited for the safety of females.So, Niqabi is for her dignity, safety, and modesty.
Though people claim that Niqabi women are also got raped, but they should never deny the fact that practicing modesty reflects positive vibes and people sees that person as a believer. Rape and Modesty can’t be linked. Rape is a consequence of immoral values and modesty practicing is like safeguarding one’s dignity and pride.
Muslim sisters are allowed to go anywhere to gain knowledge like if you are an Indian and want to pursue your degree from Oxford University, you are allowed to go as you the keeper of your dignity, you know the best for you. Just believe in Allah and respect your dignity that’s what Islam is teaching since ages.
Islam is not just a religion it is the way of living. Women are treated as precious part of society as they give birth to the descendant of Mohammed. Yes, they are treated, unlike men, because they have a different purpose in this world. They are gentle and soft, they are allowed to rule her family when needed, they are ordered to take care of their child and teach them every good thing needed to know for this life and afterlife. They play a major role in society, as a man is ordered to go outside and rule there so it became the first duty of women to teach her child the best. As said “MOTHER IS THE FIRST AND BEST TEACHER”, which is explained very well in Q’uran. She needs to do SALAH, do RAMADAN and HAJJ. The five principles are same to all Muslim brother and sister. She needs to safeguard her virginity as well because practicing physical things outside marriage is considered as a sin. Her dignity is in her hand. Practicing modesty includes anything that covers your body to withdraw the avoidable attention, this includes wearing HIJAB, ABAYAS, NIQAB etc.
Veiling doesn’t show male dominance nor a person who is unable to make a stand for herself, rather it exhibits someone who keeps ones dignity as the first priority and who follows the order of Allah and one who can not accept a single thing that slander her worth. With freedom and liberty, she chooses her prestige whether someone likes it or not. Hijab shows her independence to opt a better way of her life.
The thing that should be considered is a lady is not treated as a slave or someone who has no worth and importance except giving birth, rather she is free to specify her ways, her decision, and for that, she is not ordered to take permission from her husband. Her husband should be a guide to her, respect her and be supporting her in the right direction that makes her happy. Islam teaches all the ladies to protect her honor, to make a stand for it and chase her wish with the guidance and blessings of Allah as there is no other well-wisher except Allah. May he showers his blessings and guide us all to the right path.
