    The hijab is not oppression
    Certainly, it is not always.
    But equally, you cannot deny that it is never.

    Not only is it an issue that has no consensus within Islam, but it is a symbol that presents mixed messages to the wider world. To ignore this does nothing to achieve either resolution or understanding.

    Very few issues in this world are as simple as black and white.

    I resent that!
    Many have made that accusation. None have proved it.
    You realise I could be studying or doing other stuff instead I'm arguing and endless debate with you guys :hmmmm2:

    I made a typo! I'm getting sleepy. Be a sweetie and fix the quote on your post please I fixed it on my post.

    It's not that she accidently bought them, she gave into temptation or perhaps her education of Islam is not that great and she doesn't know concerts are not good to attend.
    Nah, I think your sub conscience is telling you that the hijab is a symbol of oppression

    Well she deserves freedom, if she wants to go to a Drake concert she shouldnt be held back because of her religion. If she was a true muslim she would never have gone.

    The Hijab like I and many others have pointed out is a symbol of oppression. But to understand that it is indeed this, one must have something called a brain which works in a logical manner. Not a copy and paste kind of mind that most of the idiots who follow Islam have. I leave you with a clip from a man of logic and reason. These are things you muslims know very little about.

    Before we all pile on the accusation train, let's analyse what was really said.

    "I see you 4 girls right there, I hope you having a good time. You got on that hot ass scarf right there, you might want to take this off. You got to turn *muffled* up. You don't need to come out with that sh*t".

    Me being a Muslim women who wears the hijab, I can tell you right now in a crowded place like that you'd get very hot wearing the hijab. My guess is Drake was saying "you should take the scarf off, it's gunna get hot in here".

    I don't think for a second it was meant in an offensive way. He would have said the same thing to someone wearing a jacket. I think people are looking into this too much.

    But seriously what is a Muslim doing at a concert in the first place... :rolleyes:
    Genuinely curious- is listening to music/going to a concert actually not allowed in Islam? And if so, why do you think that's the case? Is music seen as sinful/diverting your attention from God?

    It seems a bit like anything remotely fun, even if it doesn't involve alcohol/drugs/seex, is somehow prohibited if these comments are to go by.

    Christopher Hitchens -

    " Faith is the surrender of the mind; it’s the surrender of reason, it’s the surrender of the only thing that makes us different from other mammals. It’s our need to believe, and to surrender our skepticism and our reason, our yearning to discard that and put all our trust or faith in someone or something, that is the sinister thing to me. Of all the supposed virtues, faith must be the most overrated. "

    This is probably going to be offensive but oh so sorry I guess... There is a reason why Islamist terrorists attack concert goers in Paris. Anything fun is forbidden, like all flipping monotheistic abrahamic religions. We must all be miserable. Enjoyment is sin. It is so anti humanity.

    Good on those Muslim women for enjoying themselves. :party2:

    Take the risk of thinking for yourself, much more happiness, truth, beauty, and wisdom will come to you that way. F*** religion and god, be an atheist.
