in response to reader comment: face veils are for modesty and protection.

It is "Sawda Bint Zam'a' and from where did you find this supposed hadith with respect to the Niqab? As from the source i attained the true story from is somewhat different from your extended tale ;-)

If you read and understand Arabic, im sure you are aware there is not a mention of the "Niqab" , there are verses one assumes to mean so but then again one can interepret something however he or she feels fit, does not necessary mean it is there now does it?The face veil is just something cultural that has somehow found its way into modern day Islam, the perpetrators being the schools funded by Saudi Arabian Wahabis who have not the slightest idea about religion. If one believes this practice of extremity is compulsory, then can one explain why there is a hadith where the prophet himself shows what part of a woman CAN be shown - hands and face. So all you people who believe niqab is "quran" know better than a prophet? I find it more amusing that such women feel this necessity to shield themselves from soceity and normal existence on this man made idea..A womens voice is "awrah" is another man made wahabi charcateristic that fails to acknowledge the number of hadiths narrated by women and indeed Aisha used to give hadiths to men. Can one explain that as well?

Modesty and protection lol amusing - from who exactly. I know let us take your interpretation of Islam and apply it to modern day. God was indeed very wrong for creating ONE planet, he should have created TWO one for men and one for women -would that suit you extremists better? No talking to ANYONE but family, no working incase you mix with men lol, no going shopping in case you see a man (!!!! horrrrrooooorrr), no getting on a bus incase the passenges get off and it leaves only you and the male driver, no touching walls in case they have a penis. Or better still perhaps go and educate yourself in the real practices of islam and not this distorted view of a minority of muslims.

The prophet once said that the muslim world should follow the majority as they cannot be wrong, yet you face veils prefer to believe that it is only "yourselves" that are practising the "true" religion, this is what has been brainwashed into your heads and this is what you believe. I feel that maybe you should not even venture outside in these halloween outfits for fear of seeing another human being or incase some defenceless child runs in fear and gets hit by a car. FYI i'm muslim, yet i'm an educated one in both formal education and religious education and know the difference between a religion and cult, maybe one day you might acknowledge the difference ;-)
