    Futuremedstudent got a reaction from shia farm girl in Hijabi Muslim becomes first Miss England Finalist   
    My opinion is first of all that is NOT hijab. Seriously inflicting the wrong impression of what hijabis are supposed to look like. Western people will believe that is what constitutes hijab and that is a shame and disgrace for all practicing hijabis. I don't care if that shows a "good impression" of muslims-- afterall that is subjective and it is what the media chooses to show. Why not show the thousands of muslims donating food on Arbaeen? Why not show Muslim charities etc. Next thing you know they will show "hijabi's" singing and dancing-- which unfortunately already happened. I hope that got my point across.

    I've never felt more offended as a hijabi. All of this western normalization of ideals is getting to y'all minds and its a disgrace.

    Don’t know why this is such a big issue.  There seems to be a lot of speculation about a person we do not even know.  We should be guiding and supporting our Muslim sisters not ridiculing and slandering.
    This women is in a full length dress with full length sleeves and it goes to her neck.  The makeup is a bit much but no worse than many that I have seen on many a Muslima.  I have also seen less modest dress on TV stations that are accepted in “Muslim” countries.  
    Her stated intention is to raise money for a charity that she is involved in (started?) and is doing so by challenging a variety of stereotypes.  Who are we to challenge her intention?  We should be taking her at her word.
    However..... there are many Muslim women in the UK who have very difficult and challenging lives for a multitude of reasons based on haram or oppressive behaviour of others.  If we are able to spend this much time on one person, perhaps we can more wisely spend time and energy to address some of these challenges that adversely impact our sisters on a daily basis.

    Sister, no one "allowed" that behaviour. We're all agreeing that it's haram. Difference is, some people are claiming she simply is not a practicing Muslim and disrespecting her. Others opt to leave the judgement to God because none of us are qualified to judge her. And, how exactly do we not allow certain behaviour? We can't police Muslims. We all have the freewill to do whatever we want. 
    As for not telling others our sins, it's inevitable that we end up revealing our sins. Some sins cannot be hidden. For example ,not lowering your gaze, joking with a non-mahram, being caught in a lie, etc. The list goes on and on. And we will commit those sins because we are fallible. Whether it's the sins I mentioned, or other ones. Some may be easily concealed, others not.

    By being lenient and allowing that behaviour verbally one supports it as it creates a social atmosphere that allows such behaviour. 
    As Muslims we are not even supposed to tell others our sins, let alone flash them before a whole nation. Why? - It normalizes the behaviour and leads to more people engaging in it.

    No one supported other peoples sins. For example, I acknowledged it was a sin and intend on learning from her mistakes. Isn't that amr bil ma3roof wa nahi an al munkar? What's the point of disrespecting someone because they seemingly don't adhere to becoming one's ideal believer ?

    Sis, we are not judging her as a whole person. We just don't accept that thing she did. InshaAllah she will repent and better herself. 
     
    Personally I think we hijabis can (if we want) get degrees and reach high positions in an honourable fashion instead - people will respect us and our religion more if we hold steadfastly to it and don't compromise it because we are a minority in the country we live in. 
    In the end we should care for what our creator thinks of us and not what his creation thinks of us. Otherwise we are close to shirk.

    Yes , this was a dumb move on the contant's part, but who are we to judge whether she's a good Muslim or not? She may not abide by certain standards of hijab and she may be subjecting herself to objectification, but that doesn't completely rule out the possibility that she may have greater iman than all of us. I'm sure we all have things we regret and are ashamed of, none of us are infallibles. Instead of completely judging and bashing her for this one fault, we should acknowledge her wrong and learn from her mistakes. 
    As for my opinion, yes I agree she's objectifying herself and breaking rules of hijab in Islam (which are both very bad behaviours), I still think there is some slight positive. It gets rid of the misconception that hijabis are aliens and "ragheads" and unfeminine etc etc. Yes ,it may be at the expense of our worldwide image and respect for ourselves , but honestly I don't see much of a difference between herself and hijabis I see on the street almost everyday. She has just gone on TV. So, on the whole it is an unintelligent decision to take part in such a contest, but among all the negatives and haram, there is a slight positive to it, because she makes the life of hijabis living in the west that tiny bit more bearable.

    Seriously brother, all philosophical questions aside, can we at least agree on al sirat al mostaqim ? Is a beauty pageant a straight path to Allah's mercy ?

    You do that, you wait for the swimming suit segment (SSS).  Good job.
    When you put yourself out in public you are going to be scrutinized.  I realize some people struggle with hijab, but they are not out broadcasting themselves on TV.  What next, put a sticker on your hijab to represent a company?  Oh wait, Nike already did that.
    For those that advocate chastity, modesty, piety, it seems like a sourness in your mouths, or you would like to label it as self-righteousness.  Why do you think the standard or scale is based on ANY individual? By God, certainly not by me.  When I say are you going to face Rasoul Allah, I'm saying you should care how he thinks and how he gave you the pure religion from God, not how Britian wants to see you practice a perverted Islam.

    The Prophet is more worthy of the believers than themselves
    As for women, our role models are Sayyida Fatymah, Sayyida Zaynab, Sayyida Mariam.  Were they flashing themselves in front of other men?  I asked you would you showcase your mother, daughter, wife in the public eye's as as usual divert the question into let Allah judge.  No accountability, no self building, no jihad al nafis.  All thrown out the window.
    Our Yemeni brothers and sisters are being killed in a physical war and they have no choice in the matter, and the Muslims worldwide are being killed slowly in a soft war, destroying and removing chastity, piety, and taqwa and they are choosing avenues of everything Rasoul Allah stood against.  What a shame. 
    You throw a line like "I'll stick to Quran."  Please do so, what does Quran say about hijab?  What does it say about women safeguarding their private parts?  And you want to wait to see the SSS, with a huge xD on your face.  Astgfor'Allah rabi wa atoob elaak.  Just amazing!  
    God keep us steadfast on His religion.

    I understand your view more thoroughly now, but will have to respectfully disagree. The reason being, sure, muslims do all those things and we are humans just like everyone else, and so people can be more comfortable with us by witnessing this aspect first-hand. However usually muslims do those things without representing an entire religion, they are just muslims who happen to do sinful things. That's my point, she could've been a participant in a beauty pageant who happened to be a muslim wearing a scarf, but instead she decided to claim hijab and thus be representative of Islam. There have been many Westerners* cat walking with scarves similar to hers. On top of this, I've never heard of other participants in the past being put on a front page for being christian with a nun outfit, or jewish, or sikh, etc.
    Like you said, muslims are getting attacked enough without this 'beauty' girl. We don't need more high-profile contradictory nonsense. It would be like someone claiming to be an Imam/Mufti and also saying he practices gay intercourse (this actually happened in the U.S, how ridiculous is that?). You can't say I'm wearing hijab and I am participating in an event designed to flaunt my beauty.

    Good point, however in this context, intention is irrelevant.
    The fundamental principle of hijab is to conceal one's beauty. Thus to claim it as your identity and participate in a beauty pageant is both selfish and foolish, whether your intentions are pure or not. She should know better, she is a grown women. I'd give her a pass if she were a young teen, but she is not, she is studying Law, clearly an educated person (though seemingly no wisdom).

    I've also read the rest of your comments.
    I'd just like to say I understand where you're coming from in regards to this aspect.
    But, is this normalization a positive thing as you seem to imply? I would argue it has far more negative effects than positive effects, i.e. the normalization of muslim presence in this manner nets a negative impact on muslim society.
    For example, the number of muslim women who will take after such behaviour is not something we can fathom, and if muslims take after such behaviour, where does that leave the rest of the muslim women struggling to apply proper physical hijab in their lifestyles? Soon, this "normalization" you speak about, especially in the West, will worsen the pressure on these muslims, pressuring them to be more "modern", more like the girl in the beauty pageant, and not be so uptight, and that "we are in 2018", etc.
    We need positive "normalization", i.e. accept the beliefs of true islam in Western society and stop ostracizing people who wear hijab properly.
    I think this is an underlying reason why many people are offended when she claims to be sporting the hijab - it sorta spills dirt on muslims who are actually trying their best. I'm not judging her as a muslim person, the only thing I'm judging is her selfish decision to identify as a muslim hijabi while doing a beauty pageant. It wasn't necessary.

    Beauty pageants are now filled with agendas of political correctness and identity politics more often than not, non-Muslim or Muslim. For instance, Miss Finland? (I don’t remember the exact country) became a winner and she was not the most beautiful. She had a butch haircut and her body unfit to beauty pageant standards in comparison to the other contestants, who looked like they had been training their bodies months before preparation, which isn’t surprising since the fat acceptance movement is rampant and trying to insert “diversity” and their obesity in various forms in the media to shut people up.

    @wmehar2
    Before Iftekhar (in arabic it means, proud, nothing to be proud about here, rather a disgrace) we had Rima Fakih LA in USA.  
    Rima Fakih

    Rima Fakih, the first Arab-American who made history by winning the Miss USA title in the year 2010 hung her head in shame after being ordered to stand trial on a drunken driving charge in the Detroit enclave of Highland Park two years after her win. However, this was not the first time Rima found herself in a scandal. She was almost at the risk of losing her title when a website featured a 2007 ‘Stripper 101’ online video of a pole dancing contest won by the former Miss Michigan. At that year’s Miss Universe pageant Fakih’s stripper pole pictures that revealed her dressed in bottom-grazing red shorts and a bra stuffed with dollar bills cost her a great deal. She was not only denied a spot in the top 15 but also blocked out of the competition held in Las Vegas.
     
    Same pattern with Fakih, where she went to law school and the speal about charity work.  Like this is supposed to make it right now?  
    Wmehar, would you put your wife, daughter, sister in a beauty pagent?  Do you want foreign men to gawk at your mahrams?  
    Can you face Rasoul Allah and give him the arguments you did above?  
    Why do you want to wait until she does the swimsuit competition?  Instead of advising her not to participate, you want to wait.  Bism Allah.  God help you with your line of reasoning.
     
    I could care less about the other contestants  , they are not muslims, they don't have an agenda.
