Many people wonder and even ask one another for what reason do Muslims nowadays talk much about Hijab everywhere? That’s because everywhere Hijab is not practiced as the Divine Rule. So we will talk about it until we make sure the Ruling is taken accordingly. Another reason is that Shaitan is the great and leader of enemies of the Human Beings; and he likes bad activities. So if a woman does not dress as per Islam, Shaitan finds his way into her very easily and so enticing men to fall into a deep pit of tribulations.
I’ve just found after reading from the previous article; “The Hijab Muslim Sisters” are focusing on a very important task to which I mostly pay my full attention.
Many thanks to the group for coming up with this highly honored development. I hope the sisters will focus on most important features that depreciate the nature of Hijab in Malawi. I hope this group shall work perfectly according to the Qur’an and Sunnah, from where sisters and mothers will know the reality of Hijab. I say this from the point that I have seen Muslim sisters wearing trousers and covering their heads with a small cloth living their elbows on sun, which is wrongly referred to as Hijab.
Among the specifications of Hijab, there has not been mentioned anything of wearing a trousers! No problem or disease has ever been found due to the wearing of long skirts or dresses. I don’t understand why women and girls should cling in men’s style! Yet you find that it is a normal thing to see a woman wearing trousers, but when a man is seen in a dress, you rush with him to the mental hospital! Our modern life has rapidly hypnotized our sisters! Now Hijab is not taken the way it is stated in the Devine Pages of the Holy Qur’an and everybody comes up with his own decision on Hijab…even non-Muslim controls the rule of Hijab over Muslims!
A Muslim woman has to wear clothes that will conceal the body and her nakedness; by wearing clothes that do not show the skin, such as see-through clothes, and do not show the shape of the body, such as tight clothes. Trousers are clothes that show the shape of a woman’s body and her nakedness, so for this reason it is NOT PERMISSIBLE for women to wear trousers! UNLESS she wears over it a wide or loose garment (Nkanjo). One of the aims of Islam is to protect people’s blatancies and avoid uncovering them, because taking this matter lightly is one of the means of falling into fornication/adultery (zinaa) and the things that lead to it which Allah (sw) has forbidden. The Muslim woman has to adhere to the Islamic etiquette in the way she dresses, moves and speaks. Allah (sw) says:
“O Prophet! Tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to draw their cloaks (veils) all over their bodies”
I thank Sister Kunje for leading the women towards this great development, and I hope Malawi will remain a leading Islamic country in our region if this problem is defeated. May the Almighty Allah make this group a successful one, protect our women and sisters and make them the best chosen among the people.
