Hijab/Niqob/Jilbab is our pride.

Reader comment on item: Ban the Burqa - and the Niqab Too
in response to reader comment: It is our right...

Thanks very much for this article.

My first comment is to say that the purpose of dressing up or wearing clothes is to dignify us as human beings ie covering our nakedness , protect us (from cold) and to beautify us.

When we take the first reason we see that there is absolute inconsistencies in what others apart from a properly dressed muslim woman considers her nakedness. When they are in mini skirts, the part covered is their nakedness and when they are in a shortsleeved blouse, what they covered is their naked ness.

By the way Who is complaining of the niqab, Jilbab or Hijab? Is it those of us who are wearing it or those who have no business with it . Please we will rather please our Lord than listen to the enemies of Allah.
