    Ive always wondered y they cover themseleves up though... Wots the point?? I know its religion n all but y do people tek religion soo important?? But people shud b able 2 express their feelings n opinions so i guess thats how they do it ( ?!)
    Perhaps its going a bit far on the saying "Women should be seen and not heard" Such as the covering of the mouth for some strange reason.

    This seems a little strange...
    How and why is it srange?!! its only strange to U because u dnt knw wot its about! evry muslim will probably knw why muslim women wear the hijaab. I do not wear the hijaab. But the hijaab's purpose is to cover the womans beauty. Not to go out wearing revealing and tight clothes. muslim women have more respect! they do not degrade themselves for others! i think.... all that bull about how the society respects women nowadays is a loada crap! yes woman have more rights...but if they were respected they would not ave to wear such revealing clothes! JUST to get notcied!! in the freezing cold weather none muslim women go out wearing small reavealing and tight clothes! they are obviously freezing! i find this very strange! its sooo cold why wear such skimpy tops! dnt you think this is strange??!!

    Firstly the matter of dress. A Muslim woman may wear whatever she pleases in the presence of her husband and family or among women friends. But when she goes out or when men other than her husband or close family are present she is expected to wear a dress which will cover all parts of her body, and which should not reveal the figure. What a contrast with Western fashions which every year concentrate quite intentionally on exposing yet another erogenous zone to the public gaze! In the past few years we have seen the rise and fall of the minidress, the micro-skirt, the wet look, hot pants, the see-thru', the topless and other garments designed to display or emphasize the intimate parts of a woman's body. One may observe a similar tendency of late in men's dress which has become almost skin-tight, although here the men's fashion designers appear to have come to a temporary standstill until men are liberated enough to accept topless or see-thru' trousers, which is fortunately not yet the case.

    I may be mistaken here but covering ones face is not compulsory in Islam. It is one of the things that is the person's own choice. Also, modesty isnt expected of a woman alone, men are also instructed to be modest in their behaviour towards women. I wish I knew more but when you get down to the real thing its very different from the steroetypical image that prevails.


    not being funny, but wot if some1 who wore 1 of them robbed a shop. they'd easy get away wiv it


    A "Muslim" who regards herself religious enough to cover her face but steals will no longer be considered that 'good' I think! Besides, a non-Muslim could cover his/her (you wont be able to tell whether its a man or a woman!) face and rob a shop...which would be quite easy.

    No it's the mens idea so they can make the women cover up and they don't have to. Very wrong.

    so i suppose your all for nudists being allowed anywhere then.

    Mittow - why do you wear the head scarf when you wear 3/4 lenght tops etc? you defeat the very objective of the headscarf. You are not wearing hijab at all (which is the muslim dress code, not the headscarf). It is like wearing a headscarf and then wearing tight/revealing clothing. It defeats the objective

    Is it not also true that public showing of affections is unacceptable?

    I wouldn't personally... I like to wear a little more. But it's much better than covering yourself up - society is too uptight about being nude and sex.
