    The Hijab and The 21st Century

    This is what is spiritually problematic, indeed. As for literally lowering the gaze, it's a matter of basic simple respect. Only uneducated people stare at others. It's very insulting and even threatening. One thing is a look, maybe two, but staring at other people in a sexual way is a whole different level. Such people have something more serious than a spiritual problem, they probably suffer from a psychological/social one.

    Once you divide infinity it is no longer infinite. The definition of infinity is that it is unlimited. So no. For example if you have an infinitely long line, then you divide it in half. Wait, how could you do that. If there were no limits, how would you know where the halfway point was ? So to say the 'halfway' point of an infinite line makes no sense. The term 'half' only applies to finite things, not to infinite things Thus, you could only 'cut into parts' something that is finite. An infinite thing cannot be cut into parts.

    Not financially ambitious enough?

    Salam. Our Rasul s.a. and Imams (عليه السلام) do not like the people who do not work or try to earn. Being lazy is against Islamic tradition. And money should be in the hand of righteous people like, so that you may use your money for religion. And do not wait for the perfect job to come in your way. Use the opportunities you get, eventually that will increase your experience and your chances of getting better (or perfect) job will increase. Watch this, it will help you.

    One of the many reasons as to why it is not allowed is because a non Muslim cannot have authority over a Muslim. Thus the marriage of a Christian man to a Muslim women is invalid because it makes the husband the wali of the wife. As far as your question of how this can be happening; I would say that its due to some Muslims taking their religion as a joke and because this is akhirul zaman that we are living in.

    It isn't about different methodologies or hard boundaries. It is about giving a rich topic the intellectual consideration it deserves. Everyone and their grandmother makes unsubstantiated claims but serious intellectuals have a responsibility to their followers and the subject matter. Otherwise you risk exposing yourself or worse: misleading the public. This is extremely dangerous, especially when it comes to topics not within the primary domain. For scholarship to remain pure it must continuously be scrutinized. If you are going to make a bold statement about male/female psychology then back it up, you don't have to agree with the scientific consensus but don't be intellectually lazy. Even most serious Psychologists do not make such statements. To think we should be just taking a Mujtahid's word on economics or quantum mechanics is absurd. When it comes to these things it is totally appropriate to expect justifications. The practical implications of not doing so are obvious. Lastly, Integrity of scholarship is far more important than respect for its figures.

    Women have the desire to display?

    Unfortunately, to varying extents, this sort of thing exist in every society. You have certain speakers and intellectuals in the West that follow the same trend. Take Jordan Peterson for example, his domain is psychology, where he undoubtedly has some interesting things to say. Yet, he has amassed such a huge following that he goes out there and gives talks on topics he doesn't have a clue about, such as Marxism. Interestingly enough, when it comes to Islam he has the sense to back off and admit his ignorance. In the Muslim world, unfortunately the masses turn to religious scholars for guidance, education and counsel on every topic imaginable, from complex socio-economic and political issues to evolutionary biology. The problem is that their authority is unmatched, individuals are not willing to take them to task, nor willing to refer to the actual experts so they can get away with mindless commentary on every topic conceivable. Islam is an all encompassing religion so the temptation is stronger to over-extend yourself, but unfortunately, real scholarship takes serious, tedious work and ain't no one got time for that.

    No I think it can also be subconscious and biologically hardwired in us. Female beautification is thousands of years old and various depictions of female beauty standards exist over the ages. It has been argued men find wide hips attractive, not in of itself but due to child bearing and as a sign of fertility in attracting a mate. Does the average fella contemplate a female's birthing capabilities when admiring her bodily features? Probably not. I know this comes off like an Attenborough documentary, but evolution and biology plays a part. It happens in the Animal kingdom too with few exceptions (it is reversed for the Peacock). The wiminz peacocks loves a guy who knows how to dress and has flare. Anyway my point is, one may not have the intention to attract opposite genders, they may not even be aware, but it is essential for the procreation of later generations.

    “As to marriage, you are allowed to marry the chaste from among the believing women and the chaste from among those who have been given the Book before you (are lawful for you); provided that you have given them their dowries, and live with them in honor, not in fornication, nor taking them as secret concubines.”Qur’an (5:5).

    North Europeans is not white. We are mostly pale pink. There are some Iranians in Mazandaran that are pale pink too. South europeans are more pale brown like people in the Middle East including most Iranians. But everywhere people are mixed. My mom has the pale pink skin color of north Europeans. My dad has the pale brown skin color like people in the Middle East. (and no, neither my dad nor anyone in his bloodline since the viking age is an emigrant) I have inherited the pale pink skin color from my mom and my curly hair from my dad. This is the way most people on this planet is; a mix of different genetics. Iranians also.

    But if you read it in context of what it is (a warning), it is definitely not a positive meaning. I don't know how it could be in any other way or defensible. Okay, that's fine by me.

    Actually, I wouldn't. That's another irritating thing I've come across on ShiaChat, but I would tell you that psychology is a science; Like all sciences, it's constantly changing with new ideas being brought forth and being tested. But if we aren't well-versed in them, are we really qualified to make that judgment? Just because we don't agree with it, doesn't make it any true unless backed with evidence that it's not true.

    The Hijab and The 21st Century

    Wait.....what ? I think there are two ways to look at this. One is what the OP was responding to, namely that women have this 'instinct' to want to be looked at by men. While I think that is true, there is a deeper reality to this. We have to understand that our survival instincts, or called 'nafs al Ammarah' in Islamic Theology and hadith are with us for a good reason. They allow us to survive. Women, even if they don't explicitly say it, have a deep and profound desire to get married and have a family. Many men also have this. A women understands that in order for this to happen she has to attract a man at some point. She understands that alot of men are initially attracted to a women by her looks. So she has the desire to enhance her looks, beauty, appearance in order to get to her goal of finding the 'right' man to start a family with. There is a positive side to this. If a women didn't do this or care about this, I doubt there would be that many men who would be interested in getting married. If that happened, human beings would start to be in short supply, which would be bad for everyone. There is also a negative side to this, in that women can carry this to the extreme, attempting to fish with a 'big net' and draw as many men as possible to herself, so she can 'pick and choose' and stroke her ego meanwhile knowing that the vast majority of the men she is attracting have a zero percent chance of actually marrying her or being with her (in the physical sense). This is the part that is destructive to society, not the first part, the first part is actually constructive for society. If you go to Africa, Asia, US, Australia, Middle East or you talk to a Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu, atheist women this thinking is basically the same. If you are in the 7th century or the 21st century this is also basically the same. So this is the survival instinct. It is deep seated in human nature. Human nature doesn't change. To blame women or to blame men for their basic instinctual or survival nature is useless and foolish. It is the way it is. What Islam does is that it puts this nature in a certain context and it places certain limits on it, for women and for men, so that this process of finding a spouse and starting a family can go forward in a safer way that has the least chance of harming women and men. If you doubt that these limits protect women, all you need to do is look at a place like the US, where there are very few limits on what women can wear or who they can associate with. I think many Muslim women who grow up in certain cultural communities don't realize how fortunate they are that they were raised in an environment where modesty was a virtue and was taught from older generations to the younger ones. If these women were suddenly in a situation where they had to interact with women in the US who were not raised in this type of environment and were not taught the virtue of modesty, they would quickly realize how lucky they are. I don't need to go over this in detail, but briefly more than 1/3 of women in the US are raped or sexually assaulted before they reach 30. This 1/3 is a deceiving statistic. It doesn't mean that every women has a 1 out of three chance of being raped or sexually assaulted. A women who is modest and doesn't put herself in risky situations with men she doesn't know and doesn't use drugs or alcohol has an almost zero chance of getting assaulted (although it does happen to these women but it is very, very rare) whereas a women who does one or more of these things has a greater than 30 chance of this happening to her. So in the US there are many women in the modest group (but this group is shrinking unfortunately) and many women in the other group but this statistic is averaged out over both groups. Now, for the first time, more than 50 are not married when they have their first child. The majority of men in the US are not married to the mothers of their children and see their children only through court appointed visitation. Many do not see their children weekly or monthly even. So if anyone here wants to hold the US or European countries up as an example of 'Freedom' then they must consider that the preceding statement go hand in hand with that 'freedom'. I doubt that any practicing Muslim or muslima would want that kind of 'freedom' So whether it is the 7th century or the 21st century, hijab, both social and physical hijab serves the same purpose. It is there to protect us from the darker more destructive side of our survival instincts or 'nafs al ammarah' and this is equally as relevant to women as it is to men.

    Nothing is going to change. The side have been given to the Jews, because of the neglectance of Muslims. Muslims became weak (causing fitnah amoung themselves) and God is not please about them and they can do nothing anymore to Palestine or their people.

    Anything in the world can be fetishized. The hijab is not an automatic agent that will stop men from sexualising or fetishizing. Educating men AND women about what the Hijab is a symbol for will cure a lot of these illnesses.

    Tafseer al-Qurtubi, 5/392 2 – It was narrated that ‘Abd-Allaah said: “Allaah has cursed the women who do tattoos and those who ask for tattoos to be done, those who ask for their eyebrows to be plucked, and the women ask for their teeth to be filed for the purpose of beautification, changing the creation of Allaah.” A woman from the tribe of Bani Asad whose name was Umm Ya’qoob heard of that and she came and said, “I have heard that you have cursed So and so and So and so.” He said, “Why should I not curse those whom the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) cursed and who are mentioned in the Book of Allaah?’ She said, “I have read what is between the two covers [of the Qur’aan], and I did not find anything in it like what you have said.” He said, “If you have read it, have you not read that Allaah says, ‘And whatsoever the Messenger (Muhammad) gives you, take it; and whatsoever he forbids you, abstain (from it)’ Therefore it's not allowed for Sunnis to pluck their eyebrows, because they have this Hadith, but we don't follow Tafseer al-Qurtubi or any other Sunni book, and the Hadith can only be found in Sunni books. Furthermore most of our marjas have said that it is permissible to pluck your eyebrows. However I personally don't know of any Shia Hadiths regarding plucking eyebrows.

    Halal for Shia but haram for Sunni

    Really? But they eat scaleless fish? When I was a non-Muslim teenager, I had a Muslim friend who said they could eat "40" shrimps. I asked, "forty in a year, a lifetime, a day?" To which my friend shrugged.

    Some people read Ibn Arabi and Mulla Sadra in order to nourish their intellectual faculties in the hopes to make them more receptive to the Influx of the Spirit in their heart. But then there are others (who are very rare and exceptional people) like yourself who read Ibn Arabi and Mulla Sadra in order to attempt to disprove the Irfani world view. This attitude resembles someone demonic or diabolical.
