Which of the pictures below is the most disturbing to you ? Me ? I Find the 1st one disturbing . Why ? Because this Muslim woman/ girl left her home dressed in a manner that she supposed was in the Hijab style and that is was Halal . The painting below it is ART and as such should be judged on it's merits as ART . It is a expression of Artist Beauty , not a religious dress code .
I received this comment on my post Joke for the Day ......
Ok ... up front ....I don't wear the hijab . No scarf , no outer covering of any sort . I dress respectable in public , meaning all my major bits and pieces are covered . I check this out Before I leave the Condo . And IF I should ever think my dress is ok and it isn't, Moe would certainly tell me that it wasn't up to par
This woman , as far as I can think , didn't seem to care too much if her butt was hanging out in public OR ELSE she wouldn't have left her home dressed that way . I also don't think that the man/ men with her aren't too concerned , since they didn't stop her wearing those clothes in the 1st place .
This is not a common site here in Libya , thank goodness . I am not too sure where this picture came from since it was sent to me visa email , but ....I DO SEE a lot of young women and older women as well , here in Libya wearing what they deem to be proper Hijab . This is the mandatory head scarf with some or all of the following .... a ton of heavy make up ( that goes for even some doctors ) , some or most of their hair showing ( so what is the whole point of the scarf to begin with ? Why bother in this case ?) a dress/ blouse that is so tight that every curve , crease , and line of their bodice is showing ( and on a few occasions , even a very low cut top showing the tops of breasts. What's that about ? ) , followed by a long to the ground ( for modesty ) skirt / slacks/ dress that again is so tight that they can hardly breath , walk or bend down in them . BUT THEY ARE WEARING THE HEAD SCARF SO THEY ARE WEARING THE HIJAB and most people here seem to think that is acceptable hijab wear. I personally don't think that is what constitutes the Hijab . And from what I have read in the Quran , it certainly isn't what was advised as acceptable Hijab wear ,either . So , my point is this, if you aren't going to do it correctly, then don't make a mockery of the Hijab as in this picture . Do it right , or not at all .
I see females all the time wearing too tight clothes , thinking it is ok just because it is long sleeved , buttoned to the top , and dragging the ground.Pluleesssssss ! Would some one draw them a picture ? Many of them are wearing so much make up that it would take 10 bars of soap to get all that make up washed off . And that is in the daytime ! BUT they have their scarves on their heads and are in hijab ! Mashallah !
On the flip side we have here in the Arab world emerging another version of the Hijab that has gone the opposite direction in that it covers EVERYTHING! The eyes , the hands , the feet ( OMG ! We might see that naughty ankle that has plagued and tempted men through out the ages huh ? ) , to the extent of a few women driving with their eyes covered by a veil AND sunglasses . This is too much also .Why can't they get it right ?
