Alah is god in abraic
I have no idea why the woman in muslim cover their heads can you awnser that for me?
It is really just a custom in their religion that you have to follow…
Feminists and the Western media often portray the hi jab as a symbol of oppression and slavery of women.
I am surprised at the society which shows tolerance towards those who would like to go around topless but finds it difficult to tolerate a lady who by her own choice wants to observe hi jab!
Hi jab is not a symbol of oppression.On the contrary, the practice of displaying pictures of almost naked women in the commercials, billboards, and in the entertainment industry in the west is a true symbol of oppression.
Hi jab also contributes to the stability and preservation of marriage and family by eliminating the chances of extramarital affairs.
Its is a sign of modesty, and that no one has the right to look at what is hers unless it is her husband or family member. No one leaves a diamond out in the open right ?
I think there should be more thought about the gods of the wourld
There is only one true god and that one is the one in heaven.
i think you might be surprised how similar Christianity and Islam are to one another. Try to stay open minded even though you have a different belief. (Did you know: the first Pillar of Islam is professing your faith in God, that’s kinda what you did when you wrote that post, huh.)
