Muslims have undergone countless trials and suffering during the past few decades. Our oppressors have tortured us, degraded us, raped our women, humiliated our leaders, subjugated our governments but still people are entering Islam, making Tawbah (repentance), reviving their faith, and holding on to the rope of Allah!!! One of the most dangerous attacks has been to our “Modesty”. But Allah is Most Merciful; for despite the pornography, indecent fashion styles, lies and scandal about our culture, Allah has strengthened Muslim women to hold on to Hijab and the Muslim family. May Allah enable Muslim men to appreciate the strength of Muslim women, cherish the gift that a pious Muslim sister gives to the Ummah and repent from ever showing disrespect, malice or ill feeling. May Allah never take this beauty away from us. Surely after hardship and suffering there will come ease, Insha Allah.

“It wasn’t the physical altercation that hurt me, it was those words.” That’s another friend who was physically attacked by a man in Sydney’s CBD. He called her a “f—ing terrorist!” among other expletives.

The status of women in Islam is often the target of attacks in the secular media.

The hijab or the Islamic dress is cited by many as an example of the “subjugation” of women under Islamic law.

Yet, the truth is that 1400 years ago, Islam recognized women’s rights in a way that grants them the utmost protection and respect, a combination other systems fail to offer.

Islam granted them freedom of expression, political participation, business and financial rights, and asked the rest of society to hold them in high esteem and offer them due respect as mothers, sisters, wives, and daughters.

What is it about hijab? Why are Muslim women still wearing it?

How can a piece of cloth attract so much attention?
