An Essential Article of Clothing

A local level CAIR Civil Rights Director named Taneeza Islam has written something which I feel is worth sharing.  I've added some photos to illustrate her words.  To read more, click the "credit" link.

"A Muslim woman's practice

of wearing a headscarf

is a sincerely held belief

which is a protected exercise of her religion.

Asking her to remove her headscarf

is asking her to be naked in front of others.

A headscarf, unlike a crucifix or other ornament,

is not a mere accessory

but an essential article of clothing

for those Muslim women who practice it."

Asalamu Alaykom Ladies,

Thank you for reading and commenting. We hijabi sisters are a vast variety and I only scratched the surface of that thought. Alhumdulillah for the good response from you. I hope that those sisters in the pictures can get some hassanet from making dawah through wearing hijab in these pictures. May Allah reward them and all the sisters who strive towards modesty for the sake of Allah.
