WORLD HIJAB DAY – TODAY FEB 1
Hijab: What Is It All About? (Folder)
Hijab, My Choice, My Right, and My Freedom
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?
