    You probably haven't been in a professional position before then or done any research on interview etiquette.

    So you have I'm assuming? Must be a bit sh-t that youve had more years than me wondering about the earth and you're very close minded to if you can see someones luscious locks or not.

    got proof?
    "And tell the believing women to lower their gaze (from looking at forbidden things), and protect their private parts (from illegal sexual acts, etc.) and not to show off their adornment except only that which is apparent, and to draw their veils all over Juyubihinna (e.g. bosoms)..." [Quran 24:31]
    The Arabic word for veil is khimar and that means head cover.

    "Aisha (RA) reported that Asma’ the daughter of Abu Bakr (RA) came to the Messenger of Allah*while wearing thin clothing. He approached her and said: 'O Asma’! When a girl reaches the menstrual age, it is not proper that anything should remain exposed except this and this. He pointed to the face and hands." [Abu Dawud]

    No. It is compulsory in your sect. Other Muslims have different interpretations.



    I could be mean and report you for insults, like many Muslims do, but I will just leave it so everybody can see how 'tolerant' you are towards different beliefs.
    The four main Islamic schools of thought have all unanimously agreed it's compulsory.

    wow you sheep.
    I thought you meant you had a professional position where you interact between businesses not children... Attire is irrelevant in your position.

    I don't believe that it is compulsory. The main idea is modesty and that doesn't necessarily mean covering your hair.
    That may be your opinion but in Islam it is.
    Sorry couldn't add your quote in, but check my response to the other guys ^

    Look... I did not create the professional attire I simply abide by the rules as I expect my colleagues to do also.

    I don't agree with the hijab etc but I'm not discussing my personal feelings I'm discussing appropriate attire for interviews and b2b positions that require their employees to look credible.

    I'm technically a catholic but if I showed up in full nun attire id be sent home...

    What education did you have, mate? My school must of not been updated that the curriculum teaches hatred. I think youve went to a pooey school (sorry, is that vulgar offensive for you as well) if they force opinions down your throat.


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    I was speaking about your education from your family, which tells you that when you are in public, you mustn't: burp or fart, put your finger in your nose, mouth or ears, speak loudly, point your finger at other people, that you should leave your seat for older people or keep the door open when someone is behind you...

    You know, these rules are not in the law or in the school curriculum, but they are part of what we call etiquette. Removing your head covering when you work is part of that.

    That's exactly my point though.... Two people applying for a job and one has to wear flip flops due to medical reasons and the other is normal and they both are level on experience and education who do you think they will choose??

    Muslims shouldn't be allowed to wear unprofessional attire when others aren't allowed to do the same without ridicule.


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    I don't understand the relevance of what a normal person wearing flip flops and a medical patient wearing flip flops has to a woman wearing an abaya?

    A normal person wearing flip flop just because he likes to do so differs immensely from one who wears a religious garment.

    I also don't understand what you mean by saying it's "unprofessional attire" - since when has modesty become "unprofessional"? Though, saying that, a niqaab would be inappropriate for a professional environment, but the rest would be perfectly adequate.

    Working at the hospital isn't professional then? Is that what you're trying to say?
    I interact with the doctors + nurses bc they tell me about their conditions and what I have to do and be aware of.
    I have to dress professionally, this includes wearing the correct hijab.
    Not so educated are you?

    ....you have completely misunderstood the whole story so I'm going to just leave that here because your train of thought is no where near my station.

[Quran 24:31]
    The Arabic word for veil is khimar and that means head cover.

    "Aisha (RA) reported that Asma’ the daughter of Abu Bakr (RA) came to the Messenger of Allah*while wearing thin clothing. He approached her and said: 'O Asma’!

    1) that verse isn't seeming to suggest that women should cover their hair or heads though? I don't know what you're talking about. "khimar"? who's talking about khimar? if the arabic word for something was as such, why wasn't it translated in that verse correctly?
    2) da **** is "aisha (ra)"? how are they an islamic authority? are they another prophet, like moe?

    It doesn't say that they should wear a veil over their hair. It says bosoms. I agree with that.

    And the full veil contradicts the second quote.

    .... Doctors and nurses have to wear uniforms which is different from professional attire.

    You on the other hand stand around and talk to children and when you say professional what you actually mean is smart casual not professional.

    I'm sorry you wasted so much time speaking on professional attire when you are unaware of fashion as a whole.

    I don't mind Muslims actually I feel kind of sorry for them but I can't stand any religion and can't stand having to put up with other people's religious beliefs day in and out.

    But ok.

    The Arabic word for veil is khimar and that means head cover.

    incorrect - khimar simply means cover ( and has been shown to mean window cover, table cover etc in clsssical arabic. the quran 24:31 does not at any point mention 'head (raas) or hair for that matter (sha'ar) when commanding covering up- so therefore you are inserting words to suggest such.

    the only commandment in the quran was to cover your bosom - the rest which spawned the use of niqb, burkha and indeed hijab is all a construct of later generations of men in islamic society.
