    All parents have the right to teach their religious values to their children and let them go when older. This happens with Christian people to. All girls I know wear it out of choice.
    Really? hmm.

    No, it doesn't.

    Pride: 'A feeling of deep pleasure or satisfaction derived from one's own achievements, the achievements of one's close associates, or from qualities or possessions that are widely admired.'
    Superiority: 'A supercilious manner or attitude.'
    I suggest you read a reputable dictionary:

    Also, the claim that its for modesty whilst wearing designer hijabs and latest abayas and Maybelline make up and ... yeah
    Yeah, hijabis compensate by painting their face with make up. I don't see the point of wearing a hijab then.

    What happened do being allowed to wear what you want in this society? 🤔 Or does that only apply when dressing (objectively) less modest? 🤔
    As I just said, many hijabis wear loads of make up - certainly not for "modesty".

    It's just a headscarf, I don't why people have such an issue with it. Unless it's being forced, which for majority of the girls in this country, that isn't the case.

    Edit: Transparent hijabs... not a bad product to put into business

    True

    Also true, but I have heard hijabi women say that in the Quran it states that both men and women should take care of their external appearance and be well groomed.

    PRSOM. Yeah I think there is a lot of compensation going on.

    Further evidence that suppression/abstinence is not a good form of protection, as people like to claim.

    You can be well groomed without a veil covering your hair and three tons of foundation and mascara.

    Yes.
    Just because the ones you know aren't forced- doesn't mean there are some that are. Many hijabi girls on TSR said they have been forced.

    I always thought wearing a full on face of makeup with a hijab is contradicting tbh.

    For most, the correct word is "pressurised" rather than "forced".

    Well tbh most women who wear the hijab do their make up extremely well, it never looks tacky.

    A few girls on here even said that there parents would cut contact/disown them if they stopped wearing a hijabi so in a way they are being forced, but I don't think forced a pressurised are two completely different things.

    I think the difference is that only parents can force a girl to wear a hijab, whilst all the family, as well as friends and neighbours can pressurise her to wear it. The result is that she can then convince herself that she wears it by "choice"; she wouldn't be able to think that if her parents had ordered her to do so.

    True I don't agree with covering the face with a veil
    I don't particularly like the kind black abaya but least it's better than the veil

    I've been wondering, what was Mo' (pbuh)/Allah/whoever thinking when he made their 'bedsheets' black?

    Black objects are brilliant at absorbing heat and in the hot Arabic climate... It's like he had a craving for KFM (kentucky fried moslem) or something. He could've at least made them white, at least then they'd 'reflect' (I'm guessing none of you want to hear about how the excitation of atoms/molecules works) most of it. So much for Quranic science.

    Can we say that people have free choice to choose to wear what they want if they have been brought up in a society where everyone accepts a certain way of dress? 'Brainwash' has rather negative connotations, maybe 'indoctrinate' would be better, but I believe that 'free will' and the choices people make are usually a result of social conditioning.How can you choose to do something completely different to the way your parents, your grandparents have been doing it, especially if you yourself have been brought up to believe that to change is wrong. How do we distinguish between free will- real, true decisions free from thought of repercussion- and this type of 'choice'?

    This applies to not just the Muslim religion, but all, as well as different accepted societal ways. e.g. accepted dress within Western society vs. Amish society.
