The Nakedness of Women is the work of God

Reader comment on item: Niqabs and Burqas - The Veiled Threat Continues

Submitted by Salah Ali (Norway), Sep 3, 2009 at 10:10

Niqab and Burqa are non-Islamic phenomena. There is no verse in the Qur'an that describes these two forms of Hijab at all. The relevant verses speak on the naked parts of the breast and the wearing of anklets which might make noise distinguishing women when they walk in the public places. There is no verse at all that says a woman must cover her face, but what verses say is that women must not show their naked parts or put make-up before people other than close-relatives.

The exaggeration of Hijab is an Iranian phenomenon though salafi Moslem also enforce in Arab countries. Both Christianity and Judiasm partake in Hijab and Mary is always depicted with a head cover. However, be what it may, I believe that the West is also exaggerating in exposing women. It provokes desire and when desire is satisfied no more interest remains. Hijab can activate imagination and make women more desirable. No one wants to see his female topped by a black ram, and it is very natural indeed.

To the best of my knowledge lions, bulls and eagles never allow another male to their females and only pigs are pimps amongst animals, and this is why pigs are dirty. We in the Arab world think that eating pigs would turn a Western man into a pimp. But I do not know for sure if pork secrete a material that turn pig-eaters into pimps. I would appreciat further comment if this is not being scientifically true. for the very fact this gives a biolgical cause for carelessness to women nakedness. A woman is also personality but capitalism and democracy made women a comodity in the pornographic market. I remember how easy to take an English woman to bed, next day, I think of another and so on. Your world is making all women prostitutes. If women have the right to choose they would of course choose someone.

This is not the case in Islam. Women are born to wedlock. They also die in wedlock. call it slavery but this is how we are born and how we will always be. I admit there is hypocrisy in my attitude for I allow myself what I never allow others be starangers or relatives and I do not think this will change: This is our culture and this will remain so
