I, being an Intellectual Muslim, would never support any Cloth fully covering the Face of any Muslim woman or Girl. This is not the Right Dress for them.

According to me, the Muslim Women and Girls should wear Nice, Beautiful and Modest but Smart Dresses, which will maintain their own Standard, Dignity and also the Requirement of the Religion.

It is absolutely the Stupid Idea and Most Unacceptable Attitude for Muslim women and Girls to cover the Whole Face.

The Holy Quran says to wear Modest Dresses not to attract the Opposite sex. The Exhibition of the Beauty is Never permitted in Islam. Modest and Beautiful Dresses are Alaways encouraged in Islam. Islam is Not a Religion for the Utopia. It is a Religion of the Time. We must have the Right Ability to adjust our Life Style with Time. We can not ride on the back of a Donkey, when I have the Power and the ability to buy a nice & Smart Car. Was the car available 1,500 years ago? Should I use the Car or? Is it forbidden in Islam? No and Never.

Islam is a Religion of good Logic, Reason and Best Judgment. Islam is Not the Religion of the Talibans, who can not live with Time and also Standard of the World.

My own Mother in Law was a Doctor and was a Hajji. She used to wear an Apron with a Scrafe over her head. Her both Hands& Face were Always fully visible. Was she a misguided Muslim woman and Doctor? Never. She was the Most pious woman I have Ever seen in my Life. She was very Smart, Intelligent and Dignified. This is the Right Dress for Muslim women and Girls. I have given a practical Example from my Dignified, well Educated & Pious Mother in law.

Therefore, there must not be any Confusion with Burqa, Niqab or Hijab whatever you call in this Forum or anywhere in the World. This is the Definition of Burqa, Niqab and Hijab.

All the Readers should stop condemning the Burqa, Niqab or Hijab.

If all Muslim women and Girls and other Scholars, Grand Muftis and Sheikhs accept my Definition, then the controversy about this subject will be over Forever.

Thank you all for understaning my views on Burqa, Niqab and Hijab.
