Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

A 20-year-old law student is set to become the first beauty queen to walk down the Miss England catwalk in a hijab.

Sara Iftekhar, from Huddersfield hopes to take the Miss England crown at Kelham Hall, in Nottinghamshire next week.

The Muslim student, who often shares pictures of herself wearing Pakistani fashion to her thousands of followers on Instagram, said she 'can't even comprehend' how 'amazing it is' to have reached the competition's finals.

Uhm. I wouldn't consider that as hijab. 

She should be ashamed of herself contributing to the normalization of fasad amongst hijabis. 

It's sad that we have reached a point where "hijabis" are being interviewed by playboy and now going on beauty pageants with everything but hijab on. Actually it would probably have been more honourable of them to take the hijab off and stop polluting it with that filth.

I don't care xD.

She's setting an example that one can wear a headscarf and not feel insecure or out of place.

Plus this kind of exposure contributes to normalization of Muslim presence.

You're all men, and have no say in what a woman can't or shouldn't be doing llololol. 

Unless you're a woman y'all opinions don't really mean much .

No.

She can set an example without promoting fasad amongst hijabis. 

The only person who should see her beauty is her husband. Period.

And I am a hijabi myself. I don't wear any makeup when I go out and I still feel very beautiful. 

She is actually contributing to making hijabis less confident with the sick ideals of modern society.

What is fasad? How do you know it's wrong ?

What is beauty ?

Seems like you need to update your understanding of the Islamic definition of hijab and of fasad. I suggest you talk to a shia sheikh regarding what this woman and her likes are doing and come tell us what he said.

 Look...i've asked shia sheikhs and received varying answers I'm asking you personally because I can't discern which of them or what you follow. 

It actually may be surprising to you that there's no one unified answer on this subject.

From within even the sunni world I have differing answers. 

Some of which these schools and differing opinions from in both sects tell me it's okay.

Islamic definition is incredibly subjective because clearly all of us have different opinions.

It's perfectly possible to just ignore it. 

It's great that the people who judge these "beauty contests" can see beauty in a clothed woman, but the contests are still shallow, materialistic, and, quite frankly, stupid, in my opinion. I see no benefit to it.

I also see no benefit to WWE or most video games, but to each his own. If you don't like it, just live your life as if it doesn't even exist.

I'm not a marja3 so my personal opinion has zero value islamically. I follow Sayyid Sistani (may Allah SWT increase his lifespan InshaAllah)!

Contact Sayyid Sistanis office and ask. Sayyid Sistani is the marja3 that has the most followers in the shia world. 

I'm sure you'll be surprised as to what the most knowledgeable marja3 says.

People are so ignorant, they don't see how the Islamic values are getting plundered using hijab as a tool now to push a Muslimah in such lust shows.

:rolleyes:.

Sorry was I using too big words?

It's cool that the judges are able to see (their version of) beauty in a more modestly dressed contestant.

But i really don't care because I think beauty contests are useless. 

I'm not sure how to simplify it further.

Since l was a teenager l have had no use for pageants.

I think that all of this is engineered to demystify hijab values.

Simple shame on her.

The beauty contest are for men essentially to appease men wild of low values.

This actually objectifying women.

Exactly. And "hijabis" are now voluntarily contributing to the derail of modesty and chastity among Muslim women by setting devious examples. May Allah SWT guide them (and all of us) InshaAllah!

Once again, exactly! There is nothing honourable in these contests. 

The only beauty competing she should do is in making herself beautiful according to her husband's wishes behind closed doors.

She is actually violating his rights by walking around creating shahwa in other men. That is unchaste and immodest. 

Any man who has gheera would never approve of his wife walking around like that. He should be protecting her from her own ignorance like a hawk. Men who don't have gheera are not real men.

According to sistani a girl can put very light make up but obviously the girl in the article has a caked face....and coming from a guy she looks chat with make up I could imagine how worse she would look without it. Not every girl looks good with make up some look good without and look horrible with it.

That remembers reminds me of these "things" I recently saw in youtube. 

Another example of when cosmetics do not do a lot of good, in fact, they detract.
