It states twice!: "He was killed in a 7th Century battle for the leadership of the Muslim world," Imam Hussain did not fight for leadership!! No! He defended Islam, and was attacked. He fought for Justice, for Allah, for the religion of his grandfather, Muhammad A.S! What kind of man fights for leadership with women, children, and the elderly?! Clearly, this writer had propaganda...
**Warning: Picture of Non-Hijabi Why I took off my headscarf... only to put it back on again I would like to address and refute one part of the article: “...and not display their beauty except what is apparent, and they should place their khumur over their bosoms...” وَ لاَ يُبْدِيْنَ زِيْنَتَهُنَّ إِلاَّ مَا ظَهَرَ مِنْهَا وَ لْيَضْرِبْنَ بِخُمُرِهِنَّ عَلىَ جُيُوْبِهِنَّ... There are two issues about this sentence. (1) What is the meaning of “khumur” used in this verse? Khumur خُمُرٌ is plural of khimarخِمَارٌ , the veil covering the head. See any Arabic dictionary like Lisanu ’l-‘Arab, Majma‘u ’l-Bahrayn or al-Munjid. Al-Munjid, which is the most popular dictionary in the Arab world, defines al-khimar as “something with which a woman conceals her head —ما تغطى به المرأة رأسها .” Fakhru ’d-Din al-Turayhi in Majma‘u ’l-Bahrayn (which is a dictionary of Qur’anic and hadith terms) defines al-khimar as “scarf, and it is known as such because the head is covered with it.”2 So the word khimar, by definition, means a piece of cloth that covers the head. (2) Then what does the clause “placing the khumur over the bosoms” mean? According to the commentators of the Qur’an, the women of Medina in the pre-Islamic era used to put their khumur over the head with the two ends tucked behind and tied at the back of the neck, in the process exposing their ears and neck. By saying that, “place the khumur over the bosoms,” Almighty Allah ordered the women to let the two ends of their headgear extend onto their bosoms so that they conceal their ears, the neck, and the upper part of the bosom also.3 This is confirmed by the way the Muslim women of the Prophet’s era understood this commandment of Almighty Allah. The Sunni HADITH quote Ummu ’l-mu’minin ‘A’isha, the Prophet’s wife, as follows: “I have not seen women better than those of al-Ansar (the inhabitants of Medina): when this verse was revealed, all of them got hold of their aprons, tore them apart, and used them to cover their heads...”4 The meaning of khimar and the context in which the verse was revealed clearly talks about concealing the head and then using the loose ends of the scarf to conceal the neck and the bosom. It is absurd to believe that the Qur’an would use the word khimar (which, by definition, means a cloth that covers the head) only to conceal the bosom with the exclusion of the head! It would be like saying to put on your shirt only around the belly or the waist without covering the chest! Finally the verse goes on to give the list of the mahram – male family members in whose presence the hijab is not required, such as the husband, the father, the father-in-law, the son(s), and others. The Second Verse In Chapter 33 known as al-Ahzab, verse 59, Allah gives the following command to Prophet Muhammad: “O Prophet! Say to your wives, your daughters, and the women of the believers that: they should let down upon themselves their jalabib.” يَا أَيُّهَا النَّبِيُّ, قُلْ لأَزْوَاجِكَ وَ بَنَاتِكَ وَ نِسآءِ الْمُؤْمِنِيْنَ: يُدْنِيْنَ عَلَيْهِنَّ مِنْ جَلاَبِيْبِهِنَّ... What is the meaning of “jalabib”? Jalabib جَلاَبِيْبٌ is the plural of jilbabجِلْبَابٌ , which means a loose outer garment. See any Arabic dictionary like Lisanu ’l-‘Arab, Majma‘u ’l-Bahrayn or al-Munjid. Al-Munjid, for instance, defines jilbab as “the shirt or a wide dress—القميص أو الثوب الواسع.” While al-Turayhi, in Majma‘u ’l-Bahrayn, defines it as “a wide dress, wider than the scarf and shorter than a robe, that a woman puts upon her head and lets it down on her bosom...”5 This means that the Islamic dress code for women does not only consist of a scarf that covers the head, the neck and the bosom; it also includes the overall dress that should be long and loose. So, for instance, the combination of a tight, short sweater with tight-fitting jeans with a scarf over the head does not fulfill the requirements of the Islamic dress code. http://www.al-islam.org/hijab-muslim-womens-dress-islamic-or-cultural-sayyid-muhammad-rizvi/quran-and-hijab#1-what-meaning-%E2%80%9Ckhumur%E2%80%9D-used-verse What ignorance. Of course it makes you less of a muslim, because you are DISOBEYING Allah and His religion, that which you follow and call yourself a "muslim" for. When you dont follow Islam, you are not a muslim. This logic is clearly flawed because she is assuming hijab is not part of the religion...
Well, maybe God doesnt want us to go to another planet, as Mars is hope for another earth due to so much destruction of earths resources which are rapidly deteriorating. Strong radiation detected which could def. cause a potential harm to anyone going, besides the fact that those who are planning on staying there. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-22718672
