    And I know a countless number of girls who are forced to wear it. In fact, the other day, I was speaking with one of my friends and she was telling me how she did not like wearing the hijab. She felt like it was a burden. But guess what? She was afraid of taking it off. I will allow you to ask yourself why.

    Every time someone tells me the hijab is not forced, I ask them this: how would her community, her friends, her family react if she chose to take the hijab off? You can sugar the matter all you like but the truth is clear: many women continue to wear it (and say they are wearing it 'for themselves') when in reality they are merely wearing it because they fear what would happen if they decided to remove it.
    She is wrong, but I think she's talking about the case of legal enforcement of the hijab in Saudi Arabia, specifically.

    You added brackets that were never there to begin with. Look at you, altering Allah's words. Astaqfurallah.
    Before judging me, and jumping to conclusions, do some research

    What I typed was simply copied and pasted from the authentic Islamic website. (islam Q info)

    The brackets are there to explain what the quote means, in much simpler words

    Fgs, think before you point fingers

    "And tell the believing women to subdue their eyes, and maintain their chastity. They shall not reveal any parts of their bodies, except that which is necessary. They shall cover their chests, (with their Khimar) and shall not relax this code in the presence of other than their husbands, their fathers..." [24:31]

    Your brackets were unnecessary. The verse itself doesn't say anything about covering your face.

    I'm speaking about the West and even in the Islamic world the majority of Muslim men don't go round wearing that on their head. And no, I didn't say or imply it was a bad thing, you made up that interpretation yourself.
    there's no point replying to u seeing as u never read my comments. If u did u would of at least searched and saw that nearly everyone in the UAE (male) wear those headwear. You would have seen quite a few religious people wear it all the time outside.

    "again, anyone who lives in the real world knows that most Muslim men don't wear that. We're not retarded people that you can lie to you know." That bold bit does not imply a bad interpretation at all (sarcasm). And you keep saying the the muslim world or countries when you don't understand that i'm saying the UAE not other islamic countries such as pakistan bangladesh etc.
    When u first commented about this u did because someone else had said (some muslim men wear these similar headwear too) i mean what was so bad in that that you had to correct them.

    Again, no they don't. I didn't mention specific countries, just said that most Muslim men in the Islamic world and the West don't wear that and you're not convincing anyone that they do.

    Correcting someone when they make an absurd claim is not the same thing thing as calling the subject of the assertion bad.

    Any words of reassurance? Advice? Anything?[/QUOTE]

    I am a hijaabi myself and I have been tempted to ake it off. However, I get reminded and I have found inspiration. I also feel the need to eep it on especially at a time like this when Islam is a hated religion as though I should be a proud Muslim girl who represents her religion. As for you, talk to someone about it. Find a Mu'alimah. (Masjid teacher. I have one I keep in touch with and she is very gentle. If you want, I will ask if I can pass on her number to you.)
    I also think you should do some research. Why you wear it, and to find inspiration. Remember, this is a test, no matter how hard it is, Allah SWA will guide you through it. The harder it is, the more you remind yourself that Allah SWA is testing you. It's modesty, as you mentioned, But when you start to step away, take off the hijaab and claim you can still stay modest without it, remember that it gets easier to stop other things. You may start to say that namaaz doesn't have to be read as you can still be grateful to Allah SWA without it. Also, think about your future. Keeping modest in public and things like your hair should only be shown to your husband.

    Okay sweetie ,
    Have you ever seen the Abaya that is a really big deal for everyone ?
    1)Most of the abayas here doesn't follow the rules of Hijab
    2) It looks like dresses at the moment
    3) there are many colours for it
    4) At some point some people made it a jumpsuit


    Media loves exaggerate simple stuff . My friends are all 16 and 17 , they are not Hijabis . They don't wear a head scarf , they walk with an open Abaya and nothing happens . About the Islamic police or watever you guys call it , those are here to avoid random guys to hangout with random girls (eg. date and so on ) , avoid any non-islamic act ( eg. kissing or flirting ) .

    I hope you got an idea about what is going on here .
    1) don't call me sweety, darling
    2) can you give maybe 1 mere source for any of these statements of yours?
    3) so can women wear bikinis out in public in saudi arabia? I'm going to laugh my ass off if you actually say yes when you're saying "women aren't forced to wear hair coverings" at the same time, as if there's no dissonance

    fantastic argument, flawless.. i am now a devout believer in the giant cookie monster in the sky! may i be graced with magical baked treats when i die
    How about you try to make a conclusive argument as to why God doesn't exist?
    You're not omniscient like you might think you are; basing a conclusive 'disproof' of a theory that is meant to transcend reality solely on what you have seen around you isn't convincing at all.

    lol search up Russell's Tea pot, you can't disprove a negative. Prove god exists, prove he isn't a talking piece of poo or a gigantic pleasure toy, the argument is ridiculous.

    Theists are the one that make the ridiculous jumps:

    1) We don't know 100% how the universe came into being
    2) a magic man in the sky (who we can't explain the creation or origin of) must have made it
    3) such an infinitely powerful being cares what random simplistic organisms do on this spec of dust
    4) he appears only to random desert folk and gives them super ambiguous, very context specific books filled with abhorrent morality.
    5) he demands obedience and praise 24/7 from them
    6) he tells them what to do with their genitals and what to eat.

    do me a favour if anyone makes the jump its you guys, come back to me when you can prove the giant cookie monster in the sky exists then we'll talk but don't imply im mr know it all when its you who's lording it over people with no evidence whatsoever and then implying YOUR beliefs are the correct ones.

    Never once said that I believe God exists. You like assuming things and then attacking people don't you?
    I'm saying you can't act like you know whether he does exist.
    Gosh you argue really immaturely though. I'm not continuing this.

    Lmao dis is why I am sometimes ashamed of being a Muslim
    all these people think that because they are Muslims, somehow this gives them the right to judge how good or bad of a Muslim someone else is, and decide whether they're going to Hell or not.

    And all these people pulling up Quranic quotes with all these added brackets tryna say that if you don't look like a tent you're doing Islam wrong. ***** those are your words, and changing the word of God to prove your point is a major sin so sit down.

    They be judging non-hijabis on TSR then switch to their pornhub tab 10 seconds later, acting like dis is their court smh
