Hijab is always had alot of hate and so many people are against it I saw a comment of a Muslim woman who wrote Hijab is a stupid tradition. People say it is oppressive and women are disobeying God.
Some points to cover that people use

1) is it oppressive ?

2) why don't men have to wear Hijab and cover there face and entire body ?

3) It's a primitive tradition because women were property in past times mere objects. If a woman rejects burkah and feels find without it what's the problem.

4) People  claim it is suffocating , uncomfortable and can cause a vitamin c deficiency (lack of sun light).

5)If it originated from Saudi imagine having to be fully clothed when going out men are perfectly fine.

 Asalam Alaikum

Muslim woman who follows Islamic dress code consider themselves free from being judged by her physical features, but rather to be judged by her character. What important is their intellectual and personality, and not the discrimination for their beauty. While women always emphasize on their beauty to fulfil the standard of attractiveness set by men, Muslim women set themselves free from being such a display object , but rather consider themselves as humans who have an exclusive right over themselves.


First and foremost, we must wear hijab because Allah has commanded us to do so: "O Prophet! Tell your wives and daughters and the believing women that they should caste their outer garments over their persons (in abroad). That is most convenient, that they should be known and not molested. And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful." [Qur'an, 33:59].

And say to the believing women that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty; that they should not display their beauty and their ornaments except what appear thereof; that they should draw their veils over their bosoms and not display their beauty..." [Qur'an 24:31].

We must obey Allah because He created us to obey Him: "I have only created jinn and man that they obey Me." [Qur'an 56:51]. Therefore, being Muslim means to obey Allah whatever He commanded us to do. We know that whatever Allah has commanded us to do is for our own benefit and it does not profit nor harm Him.

Some of the benefits are:

a) We are protected from sexual attention. Have you noticed how women who beautify themselves and walk down the street get a lot of sexual attention? The West says that it is not the women's fault that she is sexually molested and rapped. And that it is her right to dress as she pleases. But it is her fault for enticing the offender and his fault for committing the crime. Both are at fault. When a Muslim woman is fully covered, she will not get the sexual attention. She may get attention at first out of curiosity but this is not the same as sexual attention, for sexual attention is the dangerous one.

b) Society is not corrupted by evils. It is common knowledge, even amongst Western psychologists who would admit it, that man is a sexual creature. When he sees a beautiful woman, he will get sexual urges. You can just imagine what happens to a society with so many women flaunting their beauty around! Where will these men (and women) go to fulfill their urges? Look around your society - rape, pedophilia, buggery, gayism/lesbianism, adultery, broken homes, mistresses etc - all sorts of indecency arises. A'uthubillah! We seek refuge with Allah from such vulgarity!!! At the other extreme, when women's beauty is seen as a common thing because it is everywhere, people will get bored with it and therefore want to try something different - hence, homosexuality, buggery etc. A'uthubillah! We seek refuge with Allah from such horror!!! So it does not matter whether a woman is in mini skirts or in loose clothing, as long as she is not totally covered, her beauty is still seen. Have you noticed how a change in hairstyle can beautify a person? Or how long, beautiful, not-so-clinging clothing actually accentuates the body? If you have seen those 'make overs' you will understand that it is the hair, make-up and clothing that beautify the person (superficially of course).

c) Promotes modesty. Women don't become slaves to their vanity. They don't compete with each other and 'bitch' over it. This is not to say that wives don't try to look good for their husbands. In fact, they should because this is the norm: the woman and man makes her/himself beautiful for her/his partner. What makes more sense? A woman who beautifies herself for the all and sundry to see but does not do so inside her home for her loved one, or a woman who beautifies herself for her husband and covers and protects herself from the eyes of the world?

We pray that this has helped. May Allah guide you.

An Orthodox Christian priest praising the Muslim Women who observe the modest dress of Hijab and act morally upright.

British Muslim women who wear the hijab feel generally better about their body image than those who don’t wear the hijab suggests research published in the British Journal of Psychology.

The research, conducted by Dr Viren Swami from the University of Westminster and colleagues looked at body image issues amongst British Muslim women.

Dr Swami explained: “In the West anxiety about body image, for women, is so prevalent it’s considered normal. This study aimed to explore how these attitudes differ within a British Muslim community.”

A total of 587 Muslim women aged from 18 to 70 years from London participated in a number of tests. From this group 218 women stated they never used the hijab and 369 women said they used some form of the hijab at least now and then.

Participants undertook a number of questionnaires that asked them to rate their own feelings of body dissatisfaction, how much pressure the media put on them to be attractive and how religious they were. They were also asked to match their own figure to a set of female silhouette images that ranged from emaciated to obese.

The results showed that women who wore the hijab generally had a more positive body image, were less influenced by the media’s beauty ideals and placed less importance on appearance.

Dr Swami said: “Although the results showed only a small difference between those who wear or don’t wear the hijab it does suggest the hijab offers Muslim women a small protective effect in terms of feeling positive about their body image. It appears that those who choose to wear it are better able to distance themselves from the Western thin ideal.

“These results may have useful implications for intervention programmes aimed at promoting healthier body image among Muslim women in the West. For example, by identifying those aspects of hijab use that are associated with more positive body appreciation in future studies, it might be possible to isolate factors that can be targeted in intervention programmes.”

The journal, entitled “Is the Hijab Protective? An Investigation of Body Image and Related Constructs Among British Muslim Women”, can be accessed here.

The Society publishes 11 academic journal titles in conjunction with our publishing partner Wiley-Blackwell. The British Journal of Health Psychology publishes original research on all aspects of psychology related to health, health-related behaviour and illness across the lifespan.

Vit. C has nothing to do with sunlight exposure,

There are two ways we get our vit. D other than exposure to sunlight: Diet and supplements.

In your diet, you can get a natural form of vitamin D3 from foods such as egg yolks (one yolk has 20 IU of vitamin D) and fatty fish (youll get 400 IU of vitamin D from 5 ounces of salmon). Alternatively, look for cereals, juices and other D-fortified foods to supplement your D intake. Milk, for example, is fortified with 100 IU per cup.

Muslim women can easily expose their bodies to sun as men do. They don't have to go out naked. Sunlight exposure can happen inside home too !

Does wearing hijab cause osteoporosis?

Also it is not sutaible for hot desert.

Similar stupid claim was made by hypocrites: They are a fitting example of people with no will power. Numerous indeed are those who dislike to go through any hardship and turn away when they are required to make a real effort, preferring cheap comfort to noble effort and humble safety to a position of honour that involves taking risks. They collapse in utter exhaustion behind the rows of believers who move on with seriousness, knowing that the advocacy of the true message requires great sacrifices. Nevertheless, those believers march forth and pay little attention to the size of the opposition or the tough impediments they face, because they know that it is part of human nature to try to overcome impediments.

Those who remained behind rejoiced in their staying [at home] after [the departure of] the Messenger of Allah and disliked to strive with their wealth and their lives in the cause of Allah and said, "Do not go forth in the heat." Say, "The fire of Hell is more intensive in heat" - if they would but understand. (9:81)

The sūrah answers them coupling the truth with sarcasm: “They said [to one another]: Do not go to war in this heat.’ Say: ‘The fire of hell is far hotter.’ Would that they understood.” If they fear the heat of the summer and prefer the comfort of staying in the shade, how will they tolerate the heat of the Are of hell, when it is much more intense and longer lasting? Although this sounds like a remark full of derision, it only states the truth. The choice they had to make was between striving for a certain period in defence of God’s cause, tolerating the heat of the earthly summer or being thrown in hell for an extended period the length of which is known to God alone.

Zakir, if you go to Saudi Arabia in summer, you will be extremely hot and wetting. Oh yeah, the bright sun can burn your skin so bad. 

Have you seen Saudi men wear traditional clothes? Why do they cover their heads?

Really this comment was written by "Muslim woman"? I think she is an apostate.













The Scientific Miracle of the Hijab and the sensitivity of women's skins VS men's - Mentioned in the Glorious Quran and confirmed by Science!  Hijab cover is women covering up their bodies except for their faces, hands and feet.

The Overwhelming Scientific Miracles in the Holy Quran.

Detailed Analysis from Lisan Al-Arab (this alone is 10 big books) and 7 other dictionaries proving the Scientific Miracles in the Holy Quran in Great Details.

Answering Trinity.

Ask me any question.

Corruption in the Old Testament.

Answering Trinity.

The New Testament confirms the Apocalypse (Revelation in Greek) of Peter which claims that Jesus never died on the cross!

Crucifixion of Jesus is a lie according to several of the Disciples' early writings.

Also see detailed refutations to Exodus 12:46, Numbers 9:12, Zechariah 12:10 and Psalm 34:20 that supposedly suggest that GOD Almighty was going to get pierced on the cross.

History of Man's corruption of the Bible.

The New Testament was not even written by its original authors.

The "God" title in Isaiah 9:6 was given to others before and after Jesus.

The early Christians rejected Trinity and never believed in it.

Contradictions in the resurrection story in the Bible.

Was Jesus crucified on a tree (according to Peter), cross (according to others), or never got crucified (according to Islam)?

We only believe in Jesus' personal quotes as closest to the truth.

Jesus according to Islam never got killed on the cross.  Allah Almighty saved him.

The blessed Jesus in Islam.

Do Psalm 16:8-11 refer to Jesus' resurrection as the book of Acts suggest?

Jesus was never crucified according to the Gospel of Barnabas.

Isaiah 42-54 seem to predict Islam and the removal of GOD Almighty's Covenant from the people of Israel.

Deconstructing Isaiah 53 & the crucifixion/resurrection of Jesus - Exposing Paul's inventions.

None of Jesus' disciples witnessed the crucifixion. They "all fled" and "deserted" Jesus. This further confirms Islam's claims.
