  1. Is hijab actually a sign of oppression? Hijab is a piece of cloth that covers your head followed by your neck and chest ( typically worn by Muslim women) In our modern world, we see people typically opposing hijab as they say that it is oppression itself! We see thousands of controversial claims to ban hijab, stop wearing hijab and what not. But before getting into hijab vs patriarchy we must know why Muslim women wear hijab, is it true that male wants their wife, mother, daughters, sisters to wear it or is there any other reason? To answer this, I would take an example from my phones cover! I bought my phone I got a screen guard on it I made it covered with a shockproof cover in order to protect it... Suddenly I realized I am being so protective for something, which I can easily buy again! But what about me? My safety? I realized that being in this modern world made me so oppressed and so meek that I cannot even differentiate what is right for me and what is wrong... It is actually protecting women from male's horrid behavior. They make people fool claiming false allegations #traditionally submissive a very popular hashtag firstly quoted by PM David Cameron saying that Muslim women in the UK, owing to their lack of knowledge and understanding of the English language, are not able to speak up against their oppressors and stand up to protect their rights. But I can see thousands of girls from well off families well eduacated with pretty good communication skills, confident and smart wearing hijab... why they aren't considered? A very popular concern about hijab is that is it a sign of patriarchy? and it a choice? I would say yes it is a "choice" everything on earth is a choice their is no compulsion in islam as the verse from quran says Let there be no compulsion in religion, for the truth stands out clearly from falsehood.1 So whoever renounces false gods and believes in Allah has certainly grasped the firmest, unfailing hand-hold. And Allah is All-Hearing, All-Knowing. Qur'an aayat 2:256 You can follow your rule book or not follow it,it's your choice, following the path which is called astrayed or the path of true success is your choice it is very simple if you will choice to wear hijab you will get benefited and if not the hell is all yours... tit for tat.. I would say going to heaven or hell is also a choice. Patriarchy and Hijab How can a rule be patriarchal even if it also for males? Say to the believing men that they cast down their looks and guard their private parts; that is purer for them; surely Allah is Aware of what they do. And say to the believing women that they should lower their gaze and guard their private parts; that they should not display their beauty and ornaments except what (must ordinarily) appear thereof; that they should draw their khimār over their breasts and not display their beauty except to their husband, their fathers, their husband's fathers, their sons, their husbands' sons, their brothers or their brothers' sons, or their sisters' sons, or their women, or the slaves whom their right hands possess, or male servants free of physical needs, or small children who have no sense of the shame of sex; and that they should not strike their feet in order to draw attention to their hidden ornaments. — Quran 24:30 (The word khimar, in the context of this verse, is commonly translated as "head coverings". Such head coverings were worn by women in Arabia at the advent of Islam. ) The verse clears the doubt that their is nothing patriarchal in islam! The western society gives bait to women giving lustrous life full of freedom... Is it actually freedom? The literal meaning of freedom is the power or right to act, speak, or think as one wants. but noone give you this type of freedom, do they? Okay lets take an example if I go to their functions wearing modest clothes with hijab what will happen? Nothing but they'll start judging me. I ask, but why if you are giving freedom then why it's incomplete it's my matter I should have my own freedom! why it is static? why dont they offer freedom to those who willing wants to wear hijab? I hope asking these questions to yourself made you pretty confident about the fact that they actually offer static freedom! Now if you are clear that freedom isnt complete.. you can evaluate that in almost all religions when women goes for worship they wear the same hijab giving it different word...( In hinduaism, In christianity, In sikhism, In jewism in all religions) but why they go such attire? Because The supreme and The devine power likes you dressing modestly! it is now clear that we don't have complete freedom and therefore have to submit oneself to someone.. why dont you submit yourselfs on the devine the supreme power? I would love if people start deeply studying with clear mind and then give their opinions! I hope I made certain things clear in this aticle and expect if people start thinking on the above questions and start introspecting! think and study before you say something! your words cost lifes!!!
