    the fact that they refuse to adapt their lives to the society in which they live and then they consider their lifestyles to be superior to those who live in the western society
    Posted from TSR Mobile

    You're totally right, just because they wear Islamic clothing doesn't mean their lifestyles are more superior than yours. I've had many cases were people with Islamic clothing on, trying to be Islamic, coming up to me starting to point out that I should change my dress code to a more 'Islamic' one. What's that all about? Guess when this happens? Every fridays. And the same Joey's walking down the street the next day with unislamic clothing on. Ain't that hypocritical? Well, it's not some muslims, it's majority of them

    ok, it seems you think everyone here cares about you going to a university with least Muslims - that's good for you but why would even write it? is it even related to this thread? because quite frankly no one cares.
    well it's not like i was hoping everyone would care anyway. if you don't care, then move on with your life and stop talking to me

    my post was directed to the OP and yes, what i'm saying is a bit off-topic but it is something which i wanted to talk to the OP about because she wears the niqab

    i'm not bashing islam and i'm not trying to criticise the OP for who she is, i'm just interested in her beliefs

    i'm sure OP doesn't care what university you want to go to and why - the presence of Muslims in a university appears to be more important to you than its reputation, which is laughable really.

    You're clearly touchy because she wears the niqab. She can wear whatever she wants its a free country, who the hell are you to tell her otherwise? why does she need to explain to you what she wears? why don't you move on with your own life.

    i think almost all religions have followers who are very off-putting and they don't follow the religion properly even if they choose to

    but from past experiences, i see islam from a very negative perspective which is why i'm on the verge of leaving the religion. i just find most muslims too off-putting when they express how they feel their lives are far more superior because they "avoid the messed up western society"

    when did i say she can't wear the niqab?

    i don't want the OP to care about me anyway, i'm just interested in her beliefs so that maybe... just maybe i can see some positive light into islam

    And why would you personally care about knowing who's who?? My family and friends have no problem recognizing me.

    As Muslims we believe that all of humanity is related to each other due to us all coming from Adam and Eve, I only said it to be polite.

    I would get a reward through me having the intention of covering up for the sake of Allah and going through struggles whilst wearing it. This world is supposed to be a test for humans.
    Sorry, but I think your first statement is utterly ridiculous. If I wanted to become a friend, of course I would care who's who or it'd be rather awkward. And I'd rather not have to check everyone's shoes.

    I think you've forgotten what the thread title is.... "Undergrad who wears the niqab. Ask me anything", so she has created a thread so that she can explain to us what she wears. Why would someone be touchy because some randomer wears the niqab in a random city? It sounds overly defensive.

    Yeah that's true.
    Well, you simply can't leave a religion due to its followers, whenever an 'Islamic' person comes up to me and tries to judge me, I just totally ignore him/her and leave them to it, because who the heck are they to judge me? It's a 'free' country, I could do whatever I want. However, in the past, I've had many instances where I wanted to leave the religion because of this, what kept me following this religion was the spiritual aspect of the religion, whenever I pray, it's like the best feeling ever. Just ignore all those ignorant fools out there and focus on the future.

    well it's not just the ignorant muslims who put me off, I think it would be best for me to leave islam if I am to live a free and happy life

    btw I'm not going argue about this because I've already done so with other muslims and they do nothing but put me down

    Do you not think the medieval islamic perception of women as immoral seductresses (and indeed of men as lustful rapists incapable of restraint) that the niqab perpetuates has no place in modern liberal society?
    As we leave in a "modern liberal society" I have a right wear whatever I choose to wear.

    If you don't mind me asking, what university is this?

    I think one of the reasons I am put off from applying to Queen Mary is that it happens to have a large muslim community. I know not all muslims are like this, but from what I saw at the open day.... the muslims there WHO WEAR RELIGIOUS CLOTHES are very judgemental and they prefer to keep within their religious group rather mix in with the rest of the student population.

    This would not be the same view for everyone, but that was my first impression of the university.
    I would rather not say but I can I ask you, how would you know that people are very judgement based on the religious clothes they wear? Personally I don't care about about people's religious beliefs as long as a good, moral beings that's all that matters, not every muslim student is like that.

    1. Yes, in the future
    2. Ideally yeah, as long as the person is muslim though I don't mind
    3. I think I would rather have an arranged marriage, by that I mean that family members or family friends recommend me someone.

    I started wearing it 8 years ago, no not really but I get a lot of negative comments and insults.

    As I said before my friends have no problems recognising me, not all niqabis dress identically you know.

    the majority of muslims who dress islamically in public show judgemental behaviour towards the non-muslims

    i'm not necessarily saying you are one of these muslims. but from my experiences, such muslims have a lot of hatred for the non-muslims out there.
    well tbh, i guess it's the same for non-muslims who are islamophobic

    how can you say it's the 'majority show judgemental behaviour' when you only seen some Muslims in your streets dress Islamically? or have you somehow observed Muslims all over the UK and come up with this conclusion?

    Agreed, a lot have the notion that they need to take over the world. They do this by marrying inter-race/religion and have 8 kids, who are then brought up as muslims. Very sly.
