Salam Sisters,

It's been a long time ( almost a year) since I posted. Someone donated face covers to me to send to the States for muslim sisters. I would like to send them to a muslim center. Can anyone help?

Lost somewhere in the Middle East.

Bismillah,

As I mentioned to you earlier in a pm, I decided not to do this because basically I don't want to promote the wearing of face covers.  Why don't you get someone to dontate Holy Qurans and regular scarves and dresses that many of the new sisters here cannot afford or even just obtain them?

Al-Hamdulillah (From a Married Muslimah) La Howla Wa La Quwata Illa BiLLah - There is no Effort or Power except with Allah's Will.

 agree with Herjihad, why promote covering the face. I think it is extreme and isolates women and in the west makes them the subject of intense ridicule. I say sisters just say NO to covering your face!!!
You cant be a good muslim if you are not decent and have a cold heart. Be a decent and kind person and care for women and children and the elderly.

Bismillah irrahman irrahim

Assalamu alaikum

just a little story from the life of Sayyidina Muhammad (saw).

Once Ali (ra) was with some other companions (ra) and they were discussing qualities of women, after a long discussion they still could not come up with what they thought was best quality and they all departed, when ali (ra) got home, he asked of fatima (ra) what she thought was best quality in a woman and she said that she does not see a na-mehram and is not seen by one. The next day ali went to Sayyidina Muhammad (saw) and told him the whole story and he (saw) said 'and fatima is of me'

sisters if you don't agree with something thats fine but it don't mean that its extreme or belittles some1, this was the sunnah of best of best, no one is saying its a must do, people only say it like you say Allah swt really loves those who wake up in the last third part of night and pray tahajjud, i have seen sisters wearing niqaab and working in really high positions at uni and hospitals, its fear within ourselves which makes us think people are laughing at us, iv seen people giving those sister respect for their professional qualities and thinking really high of them to have deen and dunya at the same time,  it is most beautifull feeling that even in this day n age people find courage to practise the sunnah, I want to leave you with a beautifull hadith in which Sayyidina Muhammad (saw) said that this religion started with strangers and at the end of times it will be again for strangers.

wassalam

If you cannot be seen by anyone then why go out of the house in first place?

its not 'cannot' its dont want to be, and like every thing else its personal choice and if you don't want strangers to see your face then its your choice

now why would you go out, well bcos some times you have to, you go to educational institutes, some people work, not because they have to but they want to, and some time to shop around, some times just go out, face cover don't stop u from any of this,
