Muslim Eve\’s Ramblings

Muslim woman in the Arab world (Part 1)

Filed under: Muslim Life — Me2 @ 1:21 pm

I’m not finished with discovering buslim blogs yet, I assume that I won’t be able to read them all, because there’s more everyday.
Besmellah Masha’Allah

I noticed that the muslim world, outside the the middile-east or let’s say outside the Arab world, is totally different from us in here, they gained the benifit of being muslims, plus living there that’s affected the way they think, most of them are converted muslims & returned ones.

Lately I was reading an online arabic youth magazine called (20at), there was that article asking girls if they want to work as a veild model!!
The answers were more funny as a lot agreed & ready to do that, I’m not taling in here about a show for Islamic costums.


They say:
I’ll wear hijab after getting married…
Well, I didn’t take off my hijab in my marriage
I was better than others

What’s the Problem with us in the Arab world??
The problem is clear to me, people in here think (deep iside their hearts & minds), that because they were born as muslims so it’s granted to go to heaven!! so they stopped doing anything to deserve that heaven, & when they do something (haram) they say: Ok, later we’ll do (Isteghfar) & God will accept , as God is (Ghafour , Raheem)!!

When you ask a muslim woman: When are you going to wear hijab (veil)?
Usually she’ll answer: When I’m convenced!!!!!
This’s the most polite answer you can get,,
Some say it’s a matter of choice & I’m free to wear & do whatever I want & I don’t need your advices!!!!

You can see veiled women in the streets,, many of them, but let’s see…
I swear that I saw one of the veiled girls wearing a short blouse with a very tight jeans, when she tends I managed to see hair waist skin.
Another one wearing abaya (which is a long dress), but her legs appearing fron the side till the knees!!!

Young girls now love to look just like Britney & Shakira!! They clothes they wear & the look they look like & even the way they talk & act, it’s no problem for them to attract attention.
They love to look like the Lebanese artests (as you know Lebanon isn’t an Islamic country

It bothers me, when I see a girl wering hijab sometimes & taking it off another, for nonsense reasons.
I mean Hijab is still exist & maybe more than ever, but muslims women don’t have the Islamic manners, they lie, they yall loud, they curse, they don’t treat their husbands well, they cheat, they act like typical human beings but not typical muslims.

Well, this’s gonna be harsh, now you can find girlfriends & boyfriends, muslims dating & you can imagine all the meaning of these words in the western world & apply it in here, there’s even kissing & huging in streets, but still isn’t that public yet Alhamdulellah.
It’s normal now to read a blog for a girl telling about her affairs & replies to her telling you’re doing great & way to go & such nonsense answers encourageing her to do more & tell more, there’s gays & lisbians too & they’re PROUD!!!!! Well that’s hell on earth.

The arabian girls are cracked, specially the Egyptian ones,, but it’s more more critical in the gulf, it’s very clear the United Arab Emirates for example, even women who wear Abaya & a scarf usually show a part of the harir, they say they wear that cuz it’s their national costume.

Gulf girls/women
They covered their faces & showed their hair !!!

New hijab ideas with a lot of makeup!!!
The new trend in the arab-muslim world

All that I mentioned above does not mean that there’s no existance of good muslim women, but the worst is appearing more than the good & people can’t understand that they have to act, they have to do something good to deserve heaven, praying is very much enough,, but they need to do more & they need to be closer to Allah, they need to understand thei religion & understand that the look itself isn’t enough.
Ican’t point to a woman & say this’s a muslim woman just because she’s covering her hair, what about the heart & does she have the Islamic manners?

Half of the glass still full

  3. Insyallah I will doa for you… In my opinion.. wear it when you are truly ready because once it is on… you should never take it off.

  6. Salam,
    I know Malasiya ofcourse,, but I never been to before
    what’s happening to Islam in muslim countries is very much related to the western agends, as they’re trying to effect our media in every possible way, which cause losing our identity, which is being muslims

  9. Salam Sister, I would like to say to your doing a good work by making the ppl understand the importance of hijab. I hail from india.. i fought in my house and got married to the girl only for the reason that she use to practice proper hijab and pray sincerly. Its almost a year since we got married and i am also blessed with a daugter. I would be happy to help you in any way to help muslim women to know importance of hijab in positve way. Now i see why Allah has told women to wear hijab. I am currently working in America. ANd i see most of women atleast half naked and this country has the maximum divorce rate and rape rates.
