In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Safety & Security is more important than Hijaab
By Irshad Mahmood – Director, Siraat-al-Mustaqeem Dawah Centre

In our life we face many challenges. We MUST have to take guidance from the Quraan in all matters including Hijaab. The Quraan gives top priority to save lives, since saving a life like save the whole world including financial crisis. We cannot cherry pick verses from the Quraan and give fatwa, because each and every verses of the Quraan is very important for us to ponder on it and take guidance from it. If Prophet Muhammad (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) had come to Far North (e.g. Alaska (in USA) or Siberia (in Russia) etc.) or Far South (e.g. Estancia Maria Luisa (in Argentina) etc.) Fur Coat could have been mentioned for Hijaab to cover from head to toe.

When Prophet Ayub (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) got sick and was not able to work and his wife had to go for work during his sickness. Onetime she had to remove her Hijaab and cut her hair short for work otherwise no one was offering her work, and she did not have any option. She was the one to earn money to feed herself as well as her husband Prophet Ayub (Peace-Be-Upon-Him), (Ref: Al_Quraan_021.083-084, 002.155-157).

When Ayesha (RA) was accidently separated while travelling with a caravan and another Sahabi found her left behind, he offered his camel and he himself walked on foot to the next stopover. When they reached the appointed stopover Hypocrites/Munafiqs started allegations on her which lasted for about a month, which put Prophet Muhammad (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) in great stress. Then Allah revealed special ayaat regarding this matter. How dare you abuse Momina, why didn’t you shout/yell NO to it? This must never ever happen against any Momina, (Ref: Al_Quraan_024.11-21).

We are facing many challenges. Saudi Arabia cannot give immigration to 1.8 billion Muslims. Pakistan whose population is around 200 million cannot give immigration to 320 million Indian Muslims, so forget about Bangladesh to give immigration to 320 million Indian Muslims, since they are already overcrowded.

When Pakistan came into existence due to blind emotions and blind super religious craze and asked all Indian Muslims to migrate to Pakistan, but very soon Qaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinah realized that this is not feasible so he had to announce that they have enough immigrants and no more immigrants from now. Maulana Abul Kalam Azad was super intelligent and warned Muslims not to divide Muslims by demanding separate state, now Indian Muslims are divided into three Indian, Pakistani and Bangladeshi Muslims. Now divided Muslims of India, Pakistan and Bangladesh are paying huge prices for that division. Now Muslims became weaker and weaker because of Mega Division among us and they don’t ponder on consequences and act like sheep following blindly. Vast majority of them don’t use their brain. Although there are very few intellectuals warning them about consequences but they act like blind, deaf and dumb. NO need to Label Halaal in front of Businesses BUT every Muslims in that region MUST know that they have 100% Halaal.

Please try to understand consequences to save all, since saving a life is like save whole world, which includes Mega Financial Losses due to our foolishness. For those who are living in Non-Muslim Countries use your foresighted wisdom and be moderate. You will sure find few of local dresses which will cover your body modestly, e.g. in the west where women were long skirts, long trousers, shirts, frocks, caps, hats and western scarf etc. Make sure it is covering you modestly NOT mini or shorts or see through rather lose and long, but not for sweeping streets, since it may catch germs, bacteria etc. which might ignite dangerous deceases but Prayers need clean. Cleanliness is half of Faith/Eemaan (Hadeeth Sahi Muslim 223).

REMEMBER: Best garment is garment of righteousness, (Ref: Al_Quraan_007:026). The Best Example of Hijaab is what a Woman wears at Hajj, i.e. with face open. Most IMPORTANT about Hijaab is that Allah has ordered to wear Hijaab, (Ref: Al_Quraan_033.059, 024.030, 024.031). In Hijaab women looks 10 times more beautiful. Be modest, use your foresighted WISDOM & you might need to take off headscarf to protect yourself. Saving your life is MUCH more important than headscarf. In some region Hijaab could like O’ Bull come and hit me and is danger to your life, same is true for men having beard etc. Your Dress Code MUST be Modest according to the Region and Time, Prophet Muhammad (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) were wearing Local BUT Modest Dress NOT Dress of North Pole or South Pole.

Quraanic NIQAAB only for Prophet’s Wives: Covering the Face/Veil/Mask only for Prophet’s Wives:

The eyes, nose, mouth and ears all require an exposed environment to work as designed, which is why Allah has concentrated them all on the head. This is why some part of the head (eyes, nose, mouth and ears) is 'designed' to be exposed and not covered. The functions are identical on both men and women. Therefore women too require some part of the head (eyes, nose, mouth and ears) to be free of obstruction - the intended blueprint of Allah's master-plan, (Ref: Al_Quraan_033:032-33, 033:053).

UNJUST may happen among DISBELIEVERS while living in a joint family system, which may cause Allah’s anger as well. Wish you all the best, AMEEN. Remember: Muslims and Muslimahs are Auliyas (Protectors) to each other. The direction of the Quraan and Prophet Muhammad (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) is to be in the middle and be moderate to save yourself and your loved ones.

Be modest, use your foresighted WISDOM & you might need to take off headscarf to protect yourself due to Danger of Death, Physical / Verbal Abuse, Job Losses, Huge Fines to put you in MEGA Financial Crisis and might end up on the street etc.

Those who say keep wearing Hijaab even in danger, ask them to put billion dollars in your bank account first, because if you fall in trouble no one will come and help you. Think if 100 million Muslimah fall in trouble in all Non-Islaamic state then who can pay multi trillion dollars for all Muslimah for their head scarf every day. Don't get bankrupt foolishly. BE CAREFUL, all the best, AMEEN.

Be Moderate, be Modest, be Tolerant and use your foresighted WISDOM to Adjust Yourself according to Region and Time, BUT keep your Eemaan safe. All the best, AMEEN. Please share with others to educate Ummat-e-Ibrahim, Jazaak Allah Khair.
