In the last few years, Muslims have been asserting their religious right to have their women wear the Hijab in the western democracies. Is it really mandated in their ‘religion’?
Like all the answers and statements that I give no matter how unbelievable or even offensive they may sound, are none the less, based entirely upon the Arabic language of Muhammad’s Quran and Hadiths with all the corresponding references.
The Arabic word ‘Hijab’ is sometimes translated as veil, but it can also signify anything that prevents something from being seen, such as a screen, a curtain, a wall or even a hymen. The root of the verb is ‘Hajaba’ meaning to ‘Hide’.
In the Quran the term was originally used to mean a (Screen/Curtain/Divide from cloth) to separate especially the guests from the females of Muhammad’s household.
The story that explains the reason for the particular alleged revelation of verse 33:53 is mentioned in detail in Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 8.255 Narrated by Anas bin Malik.
That he was a boy of ten at the time when Muhammad emigrated to Medina. He added: I served Allah’s Apostle for ten years and I know more than the people about the occasion whereupon the order of Al-Hijab was revealed
It was first revealed during the marriage of Allah’s Apostle with Zainab bint Jahsh. In the morning the Prophet invited the people, who took their meals and went away, but a group of them remained with Allah’s Apostle and they prolonged their stay. Allah’s Apostle got up and went out, and I too, went out along with him till he came to the lintel of ‘Aisha’s dwelling place.
Allah’s Apostle thought that those people had left by then, so he returned, and I too, returned with him till he entered upon Zainab and found that they were still sitting there and had not yet gone. The Prophet went out again, and so did I with him till he reached the lintel of ‘Aisha’s dwelling place, and then he thought that those people must have left by then, so he returned, and so did I with him, and found those people had gone.
At that time, the Divine Verse of Al-Hijab was revealed, and the Prophet set a screen between me and him (his family).
Al Ahzab 33: 53 “O ye who Believe! Enter not the Prophet’s houses until leave is given you for a meal (and then) not (so early as) to wait for its preparation: but when ye are invited enter; and when ye have taken your meal disperse without seeking familiar talk. Such (behavior) annoys the Prophet: He is ashamed to dismiss you but Allah is not ashamed (to tell you) the truth. And when ye ask (his ladies) for anything ye must ask them from before a screen/ (Hijabi) that makes for greater purity for your hearts and for theirs. Nor is it right for you that ye should annoy Allah’s Apostle or that ye should marry his widows after him at any time. Truly such a thing is in Allah’s sight an enormity”.
It is crystal clear from the verse above, that all of its ‘instructions’ are to do with Muhammad’s personal annoyance at the behaviour of his guests.
As usual with Muhammad and his Quran, an instant MADE TO ORDER ‘revelation’ was descended to turn his personal objections into unchallengeable ‘divine sanctions’ emanating from the unsuspecting mouth of Allah the supreme rock god of the Ka’ba.
In fact, the actual Arabic words used in the verse above are
“…min wara’i hijabi…” which should have been translated instead to “… from behind a screen…”.
By no stretch of the imagination can any intelligent being construe, that the verse implies or means ‘to cover the body of the female believer in any way shape or form with special clothing’.
All it instructs, is that there should be a separation between the guests’ area of the home of the believers from the private areas.
While the idea of the Hijab was to create an atmosphere of modesty vis a vis the females of the believers, the male Muslim exegetes created an incredible set of lies to control women in body, mind and soul thus making them totally subservient to the will of the males.
By what kind of twisted logic can anyone accuse the women of Islam of tempting the men if these men are too weak or stupid to control their sexual predatory appetites and emotions?
Using exactly the same perverted logic, one can also accuse Muslim men of tempting women and have them wear the Hijab instead, especially since the Quran instructs both the men and women believers to be chaste and modest.
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 8.257 Narrated by Aisha
(the child wife of Muhammad) ‘Umar bin Al-Khattab used to say to Allah’s Apostle “Let your wives be veiled.” But he did NOT do so. …Umar was anxious for some Divine orders regarding the veiling of women. So Allah revealed the Verse of veiling. Al-Hijab.
Ladies and gentlemen, although both Muhammad’s Quran and Hadiths clearly explain the meaning and reason for the Hijab, none the less, the male chauvinist followers of Muhammad deliberately misinterpreted and or misrepresented it to mean that the female followers should be covered from head to toe with a garment from which only their eyes can be seen.
This is a method to control Muslim women physically, intellectually and spiritually so as to have them totally subservient to the will of the men as if they were domesticated animals.
They want to cover the female followers of Muhammad – hundreds of millions of God’s human creatures – as if they are an offense to the Almighty.
Al Haj Maulana Fazlul Karim, in ‘Mishkat al Masabih’, Volume 2, P692 says:
” A woman is like a private part. When she goes out, the devil casts a glance at her”
That is why the male Muhammadan Muslims want their women covered, as if they were genitals.
The Arabic word Hijab is used in the Quran – four times ONLY – as in the following verses 7:46; 17:45; 38:32; 42:51 to describe a screen, a divide, a separator, a curtain, a veil of separation.
In none of them, is the word associated with any kind of dress or costume covering the whole body of anyone or anything.
What is being enforced upon the Europeans and other Democracies today is a Politicized form of Hijab so that slowly but surely, more and more SHARIA based rules are insinuated into the consciousness of our democracies acting as a slow poisoning of our values.
The Hijab is NOT in the Quran or in the Hadiths as a total covering of the women of Islam and no Muslim can prove otherwise.
Muslims depend entirely upon the ignorance of humanity in general regarding the Arabic language and the actual meaning of the Quranic verses to fool, to deceive and to misinform them so that they can insinuate their Sharia agenda into our democracies.
No nation outside Dar al Islam (Muslim states) should EVER allow any form of Sharia to soil their soil and undermine our democracies.
