George : Bro, I respect Islam but just couldn’t understand why women must cover ...themselves. If you said God command women to cover themselves then why still majority doesn’t cover themselves? Does Islam really cruel that there is no option for women?
Khalid : Hey George. Thanks for the kind words brother. There is always an option in Islam. Example in M’sia highway, the speed limit is 110km/ph but you still see some people exceed the speed limit right? The law is there but is up to individual to obey or disobey because end of the day each individual will be accountable for their own action. So there is an option is Islam – obey or disobey.
George : If there is an option is Islam then why women MUST cover themselves?
Khalid : Bro, are you born to this world with clothes on?
George : Of course no. Everyone is born naked.
Khalid : Then why are you wearing clothes now when you are born naked?
George : Modesty brother.
Khalid : There you go my brother. You have just answered your own question - Modesty.
George : Ok. But isn’t modesty will be enough just by covering their body part and let them flaunt their beautiful hair?
Khalid : Bro, what will you do if you have RM10,000 cash with you now? Where will you keep?
George : Of course I will kept in my pocket or in bank.
Khalid : But why don’t you flaunt your asset (cash)?
George : Only crazy people will do it bro. No one would do that because by doing that you are inviting trouble especially those thieves are everywhere.
Khalid : Truly agreed with you brother. Islam protects women because they are valuables. The Creator wants them to become private property instead of public property. By covering oneself it reduces the risk of unwanted advances by opposite’s sex.
George : But we still read and heard people who are covering themselves being raped or molested.
Khalid : So in this case do you mean that bank should not install security system in their premises and engaged security personnel to guard the bank because with all these, bank still being robbed so why bother to do all these right & get the bank to just expose their bank vault.
George : You have a point there brother.
Khalid : May The Creator guide all of us, God Willing.
p/s Did any of Muslim women here feel being force or oppress to covering themselves by wearing hijab?
