Jesus does not require women to wear a hijab but requires our hearts to be pure, modest, and full of him. Why in Islam women wear hijab and think that they are close to God when in fact it does mean anything because I know women who wear hijab and tons of makeup and flirt with men. Is Islam misleading women by requiring them to wear hijab? or is this rule just for men to better control themselves. I do not understand. And if it is for men why should I be responsible for another person's lust or desires? As a woman in Middle East country I noticed because I do not wear Hijab, muslim men think they have more "right" to look at me? They stare, in Western countries men are more respectful of women. Middle Eastern men seem to think women are for them and if they do not wear hijab they are trying to show off. Is this the effect of Islam on society? I feel the Western society is better because I am not stared at like here in Middle East.

you are confusing behavior of a cultural group with the teachings of religion.

You are assuming if a nation declares a particular type or religion, therefore the adherence should be the direct reflection of it. That never happens or has happened.

Is it possible to be of pure heart, modest, while walking around in a bikini?. if YES, define the purpose of a bikini?. Would the choice of a bikini type differ that from a slim woman?. Yes? why?, What is the motive?

Why do women in the summer feel the need to dress less then men?. No woman has ever answered this correctly?. A man can wear a suit, shirt or trousers, jeans, yet a women needs to dress in a skirt or dress, with cleavage showing?. What is the motive?.

In western nations, men are not more respectful, they have more accessibility to women without Hijab, however, a good looking woman will always get the higher look count then a female that isn't. I observe this everyday.

In the east, you have or had an ethical dress code, but with the advent of western movies, showing how loose women are in those, what do you think occurs to the psychology of those young men, when they see, either western clad women or imitation of such dress code?. They associate either behavior or appearance with that off, what they see in the television box.

Your claim of being starred at his hypocritical. You are a female, and it is natural for females to love attention, the current attention is nothing short of projecting fears or associating ill ideas to a particular group. If you did not get any attention, you would claim, that those groups hate and look down on women.

Jesus (as) indeed came to reform the inner practice of the Children of Israel. But that does not mean that the outer practice must be destroyed or replaced, the two can work simultaneous with one another.

What you call the hijab is actually just the headscarf. Hijab is a holistic concept that cannot be limited to one garment. It is a spiritual and social practice, alongside its physical practice. A headscarf on its own, without the proper intention (niyya) and proper practice, is not going to mean much.

The reason for hijab is mentioned in 33:59 of the Noble Quran, in which Allah says,

"O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to bring down over themselves [part] of their outer garments. That is more suitable that they will be recognized and not be abused. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful." (33:59)

33:59 provides two explicit reasons:

(1) So that they may be recognized. Clothing is a source of identification, and when a woman wears a khimar, we know what her rights are. There are specific laws in Islam pertaining to ritual purity, food, marriage, charity, testimonies, status, and crime where the religion of a person matters - so the khimar allows people to recognize her religion without bothering her. Part of this recognition may also be a way to raise society's moral standards, identifying the ideal muhajjiba as a free, respectful, trustworthy woman who should not tolerate injustice or base degeneracy in her surroundings. It is also a means for da`wa - many people use the khimar as a conversation ice-breaker.

(2) So that they may not be harassed. Of course covered sisters still face harassment, catcalling, and even rape, all of which is reprehensible. Of course, no woman should be harassed because of their clothing. But we know that clothing has communicative intent; it is a means by which many people explicitly or subtly broadcast their sexuality. In the same way we dress a certain way to a job interview to give a certain impression, your clothing is a message and a presentation. So in a society where women dress promiscuously, and expect men to also "make the first move" and be "confident and assertive", they will absolutely attract looks, stares, comments, awkward conversations, sleazy pick-up artists, DM slides, and other forms of unwanted attention. It really isn't rocket science - many women will attest that what they wear effects how people react to them in public.

The purpose of clothing in the Quran is to project elegance and cover shame and nakedness (7:26). In all instances, the hijab protects something sensitive from those who have not demonstrated a sincere connection to it. It prevents both intentional and accidental harm from coming to the object of value. Only those who have demonstrated a sincerity to the gem beyond the barrier can access its excellence. The precious pearl hides inside the oyster's mysterious shell. 

Likewise, even the hijab (both physical and social) of a woman from a stranger protects her from complete objectification. The only ones that can access her feminine energy, her motherhood, her personality, and her physical beauty are (1) her direct relatives, or (2) a man who has sought her expressed consent, the permission of her guardian, and has devoted himself to her sustenance. Once that sincerity is established, the barriers are gradually removed, one after the other.

The highest form of hijab is Allah’s. The hijab of Allah is Light. Allah’s Light is simultaneously both guidance to Him and a barrier between the creation and His Essence. On the Day of Mi`raj, Allah raised His Prophet (s) beyond the seven veils, nearer than two bow lengths to His divine presence (53:9), passed the Light that Jibra’il could not permeate, all the way up to Sidrat al-Muntaha. The mi`raj was the ultimate unveiling to the sincerest servant of the divine.

Thank you for your insight and response. You offer great insight. You hit on great points as far as the bikini goes and even the way women dress in the summer. However I feel the need to clarify my question. I am asking the question for women like myself who navigate the world consciously, who wear long sleeve shirts in the summer (suffer when its hot as I see men here in the Middle East living life with T-Shirts, fresh cut beard, and free and comfortable as can be), the shirt is loose and long to go below my waist. I go as far to wear a scarf around my neck to further cover myself, and yet I walk down the street and see groups of men will just stare me down. This to me was culture shock! Everywhere I look someone's eyes in a crowded place met mine. I tried to connect with the other females in this country by looking at them and noticed they have tunnel vision and look straight ahead. They have developed this because they live in a society where they too, even with their hijab are stared at. I began to understand after time here why women wear the hijab and cover their face even. No one that respects themselves sexually wants to be a piece of meat for another person. I myself have to have tunnel vision when in public because I don't want someone to get the wrong message. The superiority that men hold over women is real. I learned my new place in society when I came to live here. I have even asked my male colleague to come with me sometimes because I know when I am with him, I have his superior status of manhood attached to me and I would not get disrespectfully stared at walking in this streets.

It seems women are reduced for their sexuality. This hijab itself sends a message to society that women are sexual objects that must be covered because of their sexuality. I feel their is a heightened sexuality here in the Middle East. For instance in the West, I can walk around (modest as I do) and I am respected enough where mobs of men do not all at once stare at me when I walk by. Men in the West see women only as a sexual object who clearly are placing themselves as a sexual object. (bikini or cleavage). If I am not doing that why do I receive the treatment I do, because I do not where a hijab?

Yes you are right that females naturally love attention and want to be adored but you are mistaken to think that all females would want this type of attention that is nothing but lust, a cheap sexual desire to use another person for its own gratification. This is actually disgusting and degrading to any man or woman that has it inflicted upon them. Women are human beings who like any person want to be loved and adored for who they are not the sum of their parts or what they possess. 

To understand for yourself, would you want all the love and attention from the world for having a lot of wealth or would you want to be loved and cared for by one person for who you were? The same with women, we do not want to be loved for our beauty or parts, but loved for our souls and inner beauty. Outer beauty fades, and in the mans example wealth fades as well.

In conclusion, I want to say not EVERY man here is like this, it is just a overall experience of the society that I have had. I wonder if the religious dedication to wearing the hijab is creating these heightened sexual conditions that are here. I even have drawn the conclusion that it could be because the population is homogenous and therefore more sexually attracted to each other and stimulated. (In the United States, especially my city, it is so ethnically diverse most men and women are not attracted to each other. Me, being a Latina, maybe only Latinos are attracted to me but I am around Asians, Whites, Islanders, Blacks so we do not view each other in reproductive ways Same goes for a man in the West who is maybe only attracted to women of his ethnicity. I mention this so the reader can see I am not picking on the "hijab" but am  also considering other factors of why this society is so different is like this.)

The mi`raj was the ultimate unveiling to the sincerest servant of the divine.

Thank you for your insight. I enjoyed reading it and learned a lot. I always agree that modesty to me is so beautiful, that's why I wear it. I do not wear a hijab, but I wear modesty, and I set and example for my niece and young girls who look up to me.

I agree with 1) and 2), of course. However I would like to peer closer into your statement where you reference the woman as being "the object of value/ gem/ barrier/ access its excellence" you even go as far to say "The precious pearl hides inside the oyster's mysterious shell" . Correct me if I am wrong but these references all seem to be referring to women's sexuality. I began to be critical if you are again objectifying woman and devaluing them to a merely "sexual" value. Then as I read further I see you mention that the hijab is a protection against this objectification. And name the things of value being her "feminine energy, motherhood, PERSONALITY (there goes a winner), and physical beauty. Of all these things you mention the only one I see as being one of acknowledging the woman beyond the identity of "sexuality" is personality. A notable way in which women express their personality is through hair style so I see how the Hijab does hide that. 

Despite my critique of the Hijab, I personally see it as beautiful because modesty to me is beautiful. I just wonder at the expense of what, at the expense of freedom? I wonder if I wear a Hijab how I would no longer be me. I would be covered and stigmatized. I believe I can be modestly beautiful without wearing a scarf around my hair, and even more so because I feel the wind in my hair and have the smile of freedom on my face. However if Jesus asked me right now to wear a hijab I would. If Jesus asked me to shave my head bald for his sake I would. Maybe one day he will ask me something hard, I would do it. As for now it is not compulsory for Christian women to wear Hijab, so we will continue being modestly beautiful! (hopefully lol, some sisters in my faith are still learning, as we all are learning more about what God desires of us. And keep in mind many women are lost seeking love in the world and think lust is love, but when they discover God's love they no longer have to seek this kind of attention.)

May we as believers continue to seek God's ways and let him lead and guide us into all truth and may we please him in everything we do. Amen.

I heard here in the Middle East rape is never reported or even molestation because the women will be the one shamed, her family shamed and dishonored so they do not report it. Do you know if this is true?

A notable way in which women express their personality is through hair style so I see how the Hijab does hide that. 

Since you're a Christian, I don't expect you to don the headscarf, that is fine. Though in many Orthodox churches, women cover their hair, and in every picture of Mary, her hair is covered. Nuns cover their hair. Also, in 1 Corinthians, it says  "For if a woman does not cover her head, she might as well have her hair cut off; but if it is a disgrace for a woman to have her hair cut off or her head shaved, then she should cover her head." Similarly, we see hair coverings in Judaism and other religions. Ever wonder why this was? Hair has always been a symbol of a woman's beauty, just look at how many hair products are out there.

So just one specific correction - I don't see hijab as just the protection of a woman's sexuality. A woman's hijab is both physical and social. On one dimension, yes, it does cover her physical beauty, and for men, visual stimulus is very powerful. But there's more to a woman than her shape - her personality, her voice, her energy, her nurturing ability, all of that is protected by a proper hijab as well. A social hijab means that she is not touching men, not flirting with men, and not having boyfriends. The only man that can go beyond her veils is a man who marries her - ie, a man that has devoted himself to her well-being.

Think of it like this. Have you ever blocked someone on social media? Or have you ever hid your pictures? Or have you ever kept a strict privacy system? Well hijab is not too different from that. You're limiting the access of others.

I thought that maybe they are mislead to believe that wearing a Hijab is what God wants and they think if they wear a hijab they are performing a duty of Allah, but really Allah could care less about if they wear a scarf on their head but he is more concerned with the character of our hearts, and if we love people, if we live in love with him, if we put others before ourselves. There are some people mislead by these traditions. For example I know a person who believes because they go to church they will go to heaven or because they give money to the church they will go to heaven. But yet, the rest of the day they sit in front of the television and ask God blame God for all the problems of the world. People can have it all right, the nicest beard, wear the niqab and the Hijab, go to every religious service, wear the religious clothing, even me, I can go to church, I can give all I possess to the poor, I can speak all these languages, but If I do not have love, the bible says I am nothing. (I Corinthians 13) So I raise the question that: Are these traditions that focus on outward displays of faith misleading people, because really it is about our hearts. Jesus accused the religious leaders of his day saying, "You clean the outside of the cup but inside you are dirty" he also said "It is not what goes into a mans mouth that makes him unclean but what comes out of his mouth that makes him unclean because what comes out is from his heart." This is why as Christians, there is not food we call unclean. But pride, jealousy, etc. these are the things that spring form our heart that we are paying attention not to give way to. 

God is good and perfect, and for someone to blame God for the problems of the world and not lift a finger to help, they are far from God if they think God does not care or that God is the cause of the world's suffering. God loves people and desires our hearts and it grieves God that man kind has done the things we have done. He is so merciful and forgiving. I pray God would lead that person to know his heart. His heart is kind and loving. ( I know I went off on a tangent but the discussion I had with that person was weighing on me)

Since you're a Christian, I don't expect you to don the headscarf, that is fine. Though in many Orthodox churches, women cover their hair, and in every picture of Mary, her hair is covered. Nuns cover their hair. Also, in 1 Corinthians, it says  "For if a woman does not cover her head, she might as well have her hair cut off; but if it is a disgrace for a woman to have her hair cut off or her head shaved, then she should cover her head." Similarly, we see hair coverings in Judaism and other religions. Ever wonder why this was? Hair has always been a symbol of a woman's beauty, just look at how many hair products are out there.

So just one specific correction - I don't see hijab as just the protection of a woman's sexuality. A woman's hijab is both physical and social. On one dimension, yes, it does cover her physical beauty, and for men, visual stimulus is very powerful. But there's more to a woman than her shape - her personality, her voice, her energy, her nurturing ability, all of that is protected by a proper hijab as well. A social hijab means that she is not touching men, not flirting with men, and not having boyfriends. The only man that can go beyond her veils is a man who marries her - ie, a man that has devoted himself to her well-being.

Think of it like this. Have you ever blocked someone on social media? Or have you ever hid your pictures? Or have you ever kept a strict privacy system? Well hijab is not too different from that. You're limiting the access of others.

Mary was Middle Eastern Jewish so I imagine she is wearing a scarf maybe because the head scarf is a very middle eastern tradition(from my perspective). Some Orthodox Christians (not the ones in Egypt I spent time with, the only ones I seen were older Russian ladies) do wear head scarves (God bless them) and give them power. But giving these examples does not at all give a conclusive picture that head scarves are compulsorily for Christians. I know this scripture and it refers to woman and gives the command concerning prayer. Many women when they pray put a scarf over their head. 

 

The main difference between Christianity and Islam in this regard is that Islam seems to focus on the outer methods and system to create a more perfect society. (This is probably why we see Islam being not only a religious construct, but HIGHLY political construct, because it lays these standards for society as a whole.)

Christianity on the other hand seems to focus more on the heart and what is unseen, and the individual choice in their relationship to God. 

Just having this conversation is tiring because here we are talking about the meaning and power of a cloth. I look forward to the day where all this talk will be behind us and we will fully know God, even as we are fully known. God bless you in your pursuit of righteousness and truth.

And yes I have limited access of others in my life, but I also have given my life to so many others. Not different from what you are doing here, sharing your time, insight, and wisdom to others on this online tool. Is not this what God calls us to do as believers? To give our lives to others for his sake, that others might know him or believe in him. So as I give my life to God, I find that he uses it for the sake of others, to bring them to him, which he is the greatest blessing to have in one's life. (This of course is a righteous access, not a deviant one, as "access" was slightly connotated with deviance)

Women in Jesus' society covered their hair, so there would be no reason for him to explicitly mention it. Rather, if it was something women shouldn't be doing, then you would expect him to tell them to take their head coverings off. However, he did say such things as:

7 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’[e] 28 But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 29 If your right eye causes you to stumble, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. 30 And if your right hand causes you to stumble, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to go into hell.

Wearing hijab makes it more difficult for men to look at women lustfully. This doesn't absolve men from their duty to avoid staring at women, but it's part of the system that leads to a modest society. Traditionally, women in Christian countries usually covered their hair in public, and it's only as society became more secular that this practice ceased, and many Churches no longer emphasised it (although many still require women to cover their hair in church).

With regards to the way some men in Middle Eastern countries stare at women who don't wear hijab, then consider the fact that it's due to the context. Most men in the West wouldn't (blatantly) stare at a women wearing a bikini if she was on a beach, but a women would certainly get stares if she turned up to work at her office in a bikini. This is because we understand that there are appropriate ways of dressing depending on the context we find ourselves in. In the much of the Middle East, it is assumed that in public women should have their hair covered, and hence any women that doesn't will draw attention to herself. The fact that this may not happen in the West is simply a reflection of the different cultural mores.

Honestly, very good response. It gives me a greater understanding. This is so true what Jesus said. You know, I hope this is perceived on your end with the purest intentions of how I intend it, but you know what keeps me from wearing a hijab?

This: I love God so much, I believe he is the greatest and most wonderful, and the one worth living for, dying for, putting my desires last for. Like I truly believe in God and want people to see him when they see me and ultimately live a life that brings people to him. I sincerely believe in Jesus, his life, death, and resurrection. I believe that his death on the cross and blood he shed was the for my sins and the sins of the world. Like, I believe THE BIBLE. So what keeps me from wearing the Hijab is that it is exclusively Muslim. I feel by wearing it I would promoting Islam, not Jesus. And I would never want to promote another thing other than the one who saved me, whom I love. 

I hope this came out in the way I meant it. The issue now in the current times is that the head scarf now seems to be something copy righted and trademarked by the religion of Islam. It would be wrong of me to wear one as a Christian. It is exclusively Islamic. I feel a strong conviction about this and would never want to promote something that teaches against the truth of who I believe Jesus to be. As beautiful as I see modesty to be, the hijab is no longer just a symbol of modesty but the symbol of Islam. Does this makes sense?

Yes, I perfectly understand that you wouldn't want to be seen to be imitating Muslims. In Islam, we also have a principle of not imitating unbelievers. This is a very important principle in the Old Testament, and one of the reasons for some of the laws given the Israelites that now seem so strange to us. However, I don't think this principle should override doing what you believe God wants from you. So it really depends on you, and how you see things. After all, plenty of Christians do cover their hair in a variety of ways, which don't necessarily resemble the ways in which Muslims cover their hair.

the truth is sister, the men need to lower their gaze, if theyre not doing that, well they arent following the teachings of islam.

it compels men to focus on the real personality of the woman and de-emphasizes her physical beauty. It puts the woman in control of strangers’ reaction to her.so it is better to wear it than not wearing it.for eg if you buy meat and donot cover it birds, dogs,cats will see and attack on it but when we cover, it it is better.

But I always go back to the question, why are men excused for this irrational and animalistic behavior. Men say, "O it is natural for us to want to lust after women, it is our nature how of made us." They are blaming God for their sin and justifying themselves from the responsibility.

Men - I do not view you as a I view an animal who would attack the meat left out I respect you as a superb creation of God with the self-control and discipline capabilities to navigate in the world in a respectful manner. Maybe if you would see yourself in this way, society would be different.

Of course men not used to see women will stare. Now I suppose Arabs have dressed the way they do even before Islam. Sun is dangerous in the desert. Not like here in Scandinavia where winter is dark and the Sun often covered by clouds. Being covered here is not very healthy, we need the Sunrays. In the rainforest people almost do not dress at all. It is warm and humid. Are men staring at the almost naked women there. Dont think so, they are used to it. On Swedish beaches girls lie topless in summertime. Why stare, it is normal. A refugee from Syria would probably stare a week or so. Or at least until he has gotten used to it.

Interesting timing on this subject. I just got back from a week on a Mexican island. 

First time in a dozen years that I've seen a lady in hijab. White hijab, black from there down. Husband in mid thigh shorts and a T. Husband took off the T to go in the waist high water, she went in full garb. I'm guessing they didn't know the waves oppose the current because she was down in no time and struggled back to shore while he somewhat helped her, but was tremendously distracted. There were probably 50 bikinis in the water and one on a paddle board parading around. I heard words of disgust around me that did not shed any good light on Islam. My thoughts were, what a horrific situation to be in. He was totally out of his element, and her stuck in such a sad situation. 

The first time I saw them walking the bridge my thoughts were they were in the wrong place, I almost wanted to tell them. Society says I'm not allowed to think that way, nor "discriminate" but honestly... I never got to meet them, and never saw them after the indecent in the water, although I don't spend a lot of time at the resort, it's the place I sleep between fishing trips.

There's no law that says you have to wear a bikini. There are many styles of modest swimwear that would have allowed her to enjoy the water without being noticed. The locals wear them. The locals are quite modest and the older women are often wearing scarfs over their hair. The place is a unique blend of Roman Catholicism and Mayan culture.  

I wonder, if this lady did wear "modest swimwear" what a picture of her in her home town would do to her.

Rape Crime in Canada
It is an Amercing continent and the total reported cases of rape in this country are 2,516,918. These are only six percent of the total rape cases. It is reported that over one in three women had experienced a sexual assault and that only 6% of sexual assaults were reported to the police. According to Justice Institute of British Columbia, one out of every 17 women is raped, 62% of rape victims were physically injured, 9% were beaten or disfigured.

Think I'd be looking for a better source. 

If 2.5 mil are only 6%, then some 42 million people have been raped, this in 2003, or since the beginning of time until 2003? This suggests that every Canadian has been raped and injured, and 1/3 of those raped twice, almost 4 million disfigured. If rape has all to do with dress code, then it must have been the summer of 2003 because hijab has nothing on parkas. Someone would have made a movie.

    • Eye veil The first veil is the hijab of the eye, which is about both the woman and the man. With the difference, the limits to which the Qur'an and traditions have been determined for men is far greater. The Holy Quran says: "Qala Llmvmnyn Yaghzova I am the Vahfzvah Foorjom Dolek أزكي لهم إن الله خبير بما يصنعون وقل للمؤمنات يغضض من من أبسارهن» [1] "Say to the believers that their eyes (from the viewpoint of the unbelievers) are drowned and their chastity is preserved; this is safer for them; God knows what you are doing! And tell women faithfully, they will throw down their eyes (from a cuddly look). "     Qa'm's commentary has been narrated as follows:'Abbi 'Abdullah Qal: "The whole verse of Al-Quran is due to the fact that I am the one who despises Allah[2] "Every verse that says in the Quran speaking about the maintenance of the parachute is the purpose of keeping away from adultery except for this verse, which is to keep it from the eyes of others."   >   According to the verse, the Quran has forbidden the eyes, but the affirmation of the Quranic verses has emphasized this on men, since the impact of a man from a woman's point of view is much greater than that of a woman from the man's point of view . Considering this after the veil, if you have a good cover, tent is your head, but do not observe the look of the holy Quran, you have not followed the full hijab. [3] .   The Prophet (pbuh) Ali (pbuh) says: "Lysi fi lbden Shi al-Shakra i al-iin al-Falat al-'Allah Farsi" [4] "Among the members of the body, there is no more greedy and nobody of the eye, so be careful, do not give him what he wants to stop you from remembering God."     [1] - Light / 30-31 [2] - Ali ibn Ibrahim Qumi, Qumi's commentary, correction   : Al-Sayid Tayyeb al-Musawi al-Jaza'i, Lecture of Maktabeh al-Hoda, Matthew Al-Najq al-Thaani, p. 101 [3] - Razieh Mohammad Zadeh, the woman if that were the case, p. 78 [4] - Mohammad Mohammadi Rey Shahri, Sah Al-Hakam, Publisher: Dar al-Hadith, Baba al-Awli, Volume 10, p. 4336   By: Azam Sadat Razavi https://translate.google.com/translate?sl=auto&tl=en&js=y&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&u=http%3A%2F%2Fkhadije-esfahan.kowsarblog.ir%2F%D8%AD%D8%AC%D8%A7%D8%A8-%DA%86%D8%B4%D9%85&edit-text= http://khadije-esfahan.kowsarblog.ir/حجاب-چشم
    • The center responded to the district's doubts; Is the hijab only in the tent of women? / Hijab types of women and men News ID: 3723495 - Thursday, August 7, 1395 - 12:27 Religion & Thought > Thinking Is the woman wearing a tent to veil?Hijab is just in the tent of women?When a woman tents, all the problems that are related to hijab issues are solved?How many veils are there? The Answering Department of Qom Religious Belief has responded to the questionsabout the veil and chastity of women and men, which follows. Hijab Types : 1. Eyeliner He looks at the heart, he captures the scenes around and sends it to heart, the heart focuses on that image and takes on different modes, if stimulant scenes are sent to the heart, he will also come to this scene all Mobilizes the body and extinguishes the human intellect and prevents its warning activities, and takes man into great sins. Because of this, it is important that God commands men and women to wear a veil of eyes and say in the holy Quran. : Let the believers in the believer sink their eyes from the eyes of the unworthy ... And say to the women with faith, take their eyes from Crazy look down . "The above verse does not say believers should close their eyes, but they say they should narrow their eyes, and this is a subtle interpretation, so that if a person really wants to close his eye completely when faced with an unnamed woman, Walking and so on can not be for him, but if he takes a look from his face and limbs and lowers his eyes, he seems to have diminished his eyes and eliminated the scene that is forbidden from his area of vision. " (1) that this action causes the heart to survive gunshot evil thoughts as the Prophet says, looking at the passers one of t By poison devil, everyone is afraid to leave God, God will give him the sweetness of faith find it in his heart. "(2) Walking veil : The type of walking is very important, some with a state of pride go on the earth, some with modesty, and some with a cute and corrosive and stimulating step, therefore, the religion of Islam which attaches particular importance to the mental and psychological well-being of the community. Women are advised that they will be so precise and rigorous that they can ignite the inclination of passion into the hearts of men and may lead to deviations from the road, so that they will not even hear the sound of an altar in their hearts in the hands of foreign men. , Allah says in the Holy Quran : " And when we walk in our hearts, we will not let our foolish foolish [Light / 31] go down their legs when they walk, so that their adornment is concealed, and the sound of the Ankles that they are standing on will hear ." 3. Hijab in speech and sound : The tone of a person's voice varies in different ways, sometimes the tone of voice causes anger on the other side, sometimes it can calm down and sometimes it can stimulate and degenerate his sexual powers, among which the tone of women's voice It is more intimidating the audience, so that with the slightest change in the way of speaking evil thoughts to the mind of the audience and brings him to the senses with the speaker, God will pay attention to this sensitive and delicate matter and order women Take care of their tone and say : " Falla Poor Fatmah al-Zaqi Fat Qalah and Golna Farshad [parties / 32] So do not talk in such a way that the sick are greeted in you, and say good words ." Hijab for makeup and perfume use : God is beautiful and loves beauty, God loves his slaves to dress beautifully and make himself up, but arranging and decorating if he is in the presence of unbelievers is a divine prohibition, women have no right to make themselves up and wear them with provocations They should walk in the wrong hands, but if they want to make their own, they should only be for their husbands, and if they leave the house, they will cleanse the makeup or cover their unselfish eyes, and if they do not observe this law and will treat themselves to the unhappy makeup Allah will suffer a punishment, God's Messenger says : " Whenever a woman, while dressed and scented, leaves her home and his wife pleases her with this act, she will be built for the wife at every step that she takes" (3). Women can use their best perfume for their husbands, and they also use perfume for women who are unfaithful, but they do not have to use perfume when they want to walk through the street from the inhospitable place, and this does not mean that the woman Bad odor appears on the street, but it can be odorless, that is, neither the smell of perfume nor the smell of sweat, but with its usual smell that does not attract any dinner, and if it smells its own woman and goes out of the house, it will suffer agony. Imam Sadiq (AS) will say : "Any woman who becomes perfumed and aromatic and leaves her home is cursed by God and angels until she returns to her house." (4) Hijab on Mystery: Losing with each other is one that transfers the heat of love to one another, destroying grudge and hostility, and is confirmed in religion, and the Prophet says : " Sharpen and hold your hand, because it would throw hatred and oppression." (5) But in the meantime, it is necessary to observe the Muharram and the non-Islamic, that is, the redeemable person who is ordered to be of the same sex. If a person wants to give up the opposite sex, then he must be with him, blaming and losing with the unholy of the great sins That everyone should wear hijab in this case and avoid it, the Prophet says : "A person who brings with her an unnamed woman will be brought to death on the Day of Resurrection and ordered to be cast into hell." (6) Hijab in a joke and a joke with the nonhuman : Hassan Khalq requires that humans and humans have their humor and temperament and try to always stylize flowers with smiley words and movements, and to develop humor in themselves, Imam Sadiq (as ) Said to one of his fellows: "How do you joke with each other? He answered very little. Imam said: do not do this and do not leave the jokes because the jokes are a branch of the good people, and by doing so you enter happiness in the heart of your beloved brother and the Prophet (PBUH) joked with people to make them happy. " (7) But in the humorous humor, there is also a veil, which is also against non-law, that is, man and woman are not entitled to joke with each other and have a state of humor, but they have to adhere to dignity and respect, and to say no to their laughs The prophet of Allah says : "A person who jokes with an unholy woman, for every word he spoke to, will be thrown into Hell for a thousand years" (8). According to the aforementioned materials, we conclude that the veil is not just summarized in the tent, and it is an important example of the veil, and other types of eye control, walking, talking with non-honorable people, using perfumes and makeup, shaving And it's a joke that not observing any of these can be a way to mislead and guilty that women and men hope for in their everyday lives . ..........................................

    • What's interesting was that I expected this to be the moral consensus, with our scholars taking perhaps an even more rigid stance. This hasn't turned out to be the case. As @E.L King was mentioning earlier in the chatroom (correct me if I'm wrong), Sayyed al-Hakeem and as-Sistani both have issued rulings declaring human cloning and gene editing, respectively, to be halal in and of themselves, even to the extent of them being used simply for vain purposes like increasing one's beauty.   EDIT: He's beat me to it.
    • hi i my opinion the hijab for women is because of men with illness in their hearts because the first Gate that Shaytan Temps men is from eye & seeing in men. https://www.aparat.com/v/PZit4   Hijab in the Qur'an    What links here ...  Hijab with Fatima Zahra  GG jurisprudential issues  Hijab  Culture > Theology > Religion > Shia > General > Quranic topics  (cached) Concept and dimensions of hijab in the Quran Purpose and philosophy of veil Eye veil Hijab in speech Behavioral Hijab Veil and chastity Elderly Women's Hijab Is hijab an obstacle to all social delinquency? See also: References:

      In the Holy Quran, there are more than ten verses about the veil and the sanctity of looking at the nonhuman . 
      One of these verses is verse 59 of the surah al-Ahzab: " Or Ilah al-Nabi al-Qarlazwuj and Benatk and Nas al-Momenin Iindenīn Alīān, Ibn al-Jadīn al- eqn-e-dān-e-yarfn-fla-yuzin and khanullah ghafūra rahima " (O Prophet, tell your women and daughters, To cover up, to be known and not to be offended, and Allah is All-Compassionate, Merciful.) 
      It means a national cover; that is, a woman must wear all her body so that she is protected as a gentle flower from the swordsmanship. 
      In Sura Noor, verse 31, too, a great deal of talk about hijab and honoring the unworthy look is spoken.  Concept and dimensions of hijab in the Quran The veil in the word means the barrier, curtain and cover. The use of this word is more than the meaning of the curtain. The word covers the concept that the curtain is a cover, but not every veil, but it is called the cover of the hijab through the back of the curtain. 
      The hijab, meaning ladies' Islamic cover, has two dimensions: a positive and negative one. The positive aspect of it, the necessity of covering the body and its diminutive dimension, is the forbiddenness of being revealed to the non-mahram; and these two dimensions should be together with each other so that Islamic veil can be realized; sometimes it may be the first dimension, but not the second dimension, in this case It can be said that Islamic hijab has been realized. 
      If, in the general sense, we call hijab any cover and impeding the receipt of sin, the hijab can have different types and different types. One kind of this veil is mental, intellectual, and spiritual; for example, belief in Islamic teachings, such as monotheism and prophecy, is one of the examples of the right veil, mental and spiritual, which can lead to sins and sins of mind and mind, such as infidelity And Shrek. 
      In addition, in the Qur'an, there are other types of hijab manifested in man's external behavior, such as hijab and cover in the eyes that men and women are advised in the face of the non-Mahram.  Purpose and philosophy of veil The main purpose of the ordinance of the laws in Islam is to God, which is obtained through the cultivation of self and piety:  إن أكرمكم عند الله أتقكم (حجرات; 13) is magnanimous and most honorable to you with God.
      - = ========================================================================================================================================================================================================================================================== 
      He is the God who raised among the people of Ammi (a people who did not know the reading and writing) a great prophet from the same people, to recite God's revelation to them, and purify them (from the ignorance of ignorance and ugly ethics), and the book of celibacy and wisdom In fact, before that, everyone was in a state of ignorance and misguidance. 
      The Holy Qur'an is used for the purpose of securing the divine commandment, the requirement of Islamic hijab, to achieve cultivation of the soul, purity, chastity, and purity. Verses like:  Let us convey the believers' eyes to the unworthy eyes and protect their bodies and their bodies, which is the best of their bodies and their purity.   Eye veil O my Apostle, tell the believing men to put their eyes in vain view.   قل للمؤمنات أضضضان من أبصارهن (نور; 31) Tell the messenger to the believing women to cover their eyes with an unwise look.   Hijab in speech Another type of hijab and cover of the Qur'an is the hijab of women's speech versus non-law:  Falla is a great deal of pain in your heart (parties; 32) So do not talk to men with thin, soft lips; lest you fall asleep (sickness and despair).   Behavioral Hijab Another type of hijab and cover of the Quran is the veil of women's behavior against the non-Islamic. It is instructed that women should not walk in ways that would attract unharmed attention by showing their ornaments.  And let our Lah al-Jahran be tempted to blow us away (Ibn. 31), and they should not foot to the ground to reveal the ankles and their hidden ornaments.
      Of the discussed topics, it is clearly used that the meaning of Islamic hijab is to cover and protect the coexistence of women with nonhuman men in different forms of behavior, such as how to cover, look, talk and walk. 
      Therefore, the veil and cover of a woman is also a constraint and an obstacle to nonhuman individuals who intend to infiltrate and capture the honor of others. There is also the same notion of banning and refusing the lexical roots of chastity;  Veil and chastity The two words "veil" and "chastity" are essentially the meaning of common denial and refusal. The difference between prohibiting and restraining hijab and chastity is the difference between appearance and inwardness; that is, the prohibition and inhibition in the veil is related to appearance, but the prohibition and inhibition in chastity is related to the inner and inner, because chastity is an internal state, However, given that the effect of appearance on the interior and the external impact on appearance is one of the general characteristics of man; therefore, between the veil and the apparent cover, and the chastity and inner restraint of man, is the effect and the mutual influence; so that whatever the veil and the covering The appearance and the better, this type of veil is more effective in enhancing and enhancing the inner and inner mood of chastity, and vice versa, the greater the inner and inner envy of the The veil will look better in the encounter with aliens.  Elderly Women's Hijab The Holy Quran has pointed to this impact in a subtle way. First, it allows elderly women to dress their clothes like a tent against a non-sanctuary without the intention of throwing themselves out, but ultimately says: "If they are sober, it even means clothes like tents." Not better.  And Al-Qawada'm Al-Nawa'ah Al-Naha'ah Al-Fayyid Allah Jinnah, the Prophet of Allah, the Exalted and the Most Merciful,
      In addition to the previous relationship, between the apparel cover and esoteric dignity, the relation between the sign and the sign holder is also; that is, the apparent hijab is a sign of a certain stage of esoteric dignity with the owner of the veil. Of course, this does not mean that every woman who wears a veil and a cover is necessarily of all levels of chastity.  Is hijab an obstacle to all social delinquency? Given this point of view, the answer to these forms and the doubts of those who, for the ineffectiveness of revealing the veil and the apparent cover, is to blame the offenses of some women with hijab, because the problem of these women, the weakness in the inner veil And the lack of strong faith and belief in the positive effects of hijab and apparent cover and has passed since the Islamic veil has a wide dimension, and one of its most important dimensions is the inner and inner veil of the person who faces sin and corruption , It enjoys inner convictions and faith; and, essentially, this veil of mind and ideology, as a foundation stone for other veils, including hijab and p It is apparent, because human thoughts and ideas form their behaviors. 
      Of course, just as hijab and overlays do not necessarily mean all chaos, chastity can not be imagined without observing the apparent cover. One can not deny a woman or a man who appears naked or half naked in public, because we said that the apparent cover is one of the signs and symbols of chastity, and between the amount of chastity and veil, the relationship of influence and affection There is mutual. Some consider the relationship of chastity and veil to be a kind of relationship between root and fruit; the veil, the fruit of chastity, and chastity are the roots of veil. Some people may have apparent veils, but they have not created extraneous chastity. This hijab is the only shell and appearance. On the other hand, people claim to be chastity, and they say, "I have a heart-warming heart, God works with hearts," they entertain themselves; such humans must, in their minds, have to point to the essential thing that is within the pure, external It will cleanse and never purify the heart, it will not induce the fruitless fruit of the wilderness.  See also: Hijab with Fatima Zahra  References: Interpretation books  https://translate.google.com/translate?sl=auto&tl=en&js=y&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&u=http%3A%2F%2Fdaneshnameh.roshd.ir%2Fmavara%2Fmavara-index.php%3Fpage%3D%D8%AD%D8%AC%D8%A7%D8%A8%2B%D8%AF%D8%B1%2B%D9%82%D8%B1%D8%A2%D9%86%26SSOReturnPage%3DCheck%26Rand%3D0&edit-text= http://daneshnameh.roshd.ir/mavara/mavara-index.php?page=حجاب+در+قرآن&SSOReturnPage=Check&Rand=0
    • السؤال: في علم الهندسة الوراثية يدعي بعض العلماء أن باستطاعتهم تحسين الجنس البشري بواسطة التأثير على الجينات وذلك بـ:
      ١. رفع القبح في الشكل. 
      ٢. وضع مواصفات جميلة بديلة. 
      ٣. كلا الأمرين معاً. 
      فهل يجوزللعلماء أن يفعلوا ذلك؟ وهل يحق للمسلم أن يمكن الأطباء من تحسين جيناته الوراثية؟ الجواب: إذا لم يكن له مضاعفات جانبيّة، فلا مانع منه في حدِّ ذاته.  https://www.sistani.org/arabic/qa/02115/ It seems to me, based on the fatwa above, human genetic engineering/editing for the sake of removing ugliness or increasing beauty is halal in and of itself. Also, I don't know if this is relevant, Sayyed Al-Hakeem says human cloning is halal.
