Wanita..

"Ketika Aku menciptakan seorang wanita, ia diharuskan untuk menjadi seorang yang istimewa. Aku membuat bahunya cukup kuat untuk menopang dunia; namun, harus cukup lembut untuk memberikan kenyamanan". "Aku memberikannya kekuatan dari dalam untuk mampu melahirkan anak dan menerima penolakan yang seringkali datang dari anak-anaknya." "Aku memberinya kekerasan untuk membuatnya tetap tegar ketika orang-orang lain menyerah, dan mengasuh keluarganya dengan penderitaan dan kelelahan tanpa mengeluh." "Aku memberinya kepekaan untuk mencintai anak- anaknya dalam setiap keadaan, bahkan ketika anaknya bersikap sangat menyakiti hatinya." "Aku memberinya kekuatan untuk mendukung suaminya dalam kegagalannya dan melengkapi dengan tulang rusuk suaminya untuk melindungi hatinya." "Aku memberinya kebijaksanaan untuk mengetahui bahwa seorang suami yang baik takkan pernah menyakiti isterinya, tetapi kadang menguji kekuatannya dan ketetapan hatinya untuk berada disisi suaminya tanpa ragu." "Dan akhirnya, Aku memberinya air mata untuk dititiskan. Ini adalah khusus miliknya untuk digunakan bilapun ia perlukan." "Kecantikan seorang wanita bukanlah dari pakaian yang dikenakannya, susuk yang ia tampilkan, atau bagaimana ia menyisir rambutnya.Kecantikan seorang wanita harus dilihat dari matanya, kerana itulah pintu hatinya, tempat dimana cinta itu ada."

Aurat Wanita dari Firman Allah dan Hadis-Hadis Nabi Bulu kening Menurut Bukhari, "Rasullulah melaknat perempuan yang mencukur atau menipiskan bulu kening atau meminta supaya dicukurkan bulu kening." Riwayat Abu Daud Fi Fathil Bari.

Wallahu'alam. "Why do Muslim women have to cover their heads?" The answer to the question is very simple - Muslim women observe HIJAB (covering the head and the body) because Allah has told them to do so. "O Prophet, tell your wives and daughters and the believing women to draw their outer garments around them (when they go out or are among men). That is better in order that they may be known (to be Muslims) and not annoyed..." (Qur'an 33:59) Other secondary reasons include the requirement for modesty in both men and women. Both will then be evaluated for intelligence and skills instead of looks and sexuality. An Iranian school girl is quoted as saying, "We want to stop men from treating us like sex objects, as they have always done. We want them to ignore our appearance and to be attentive to our personalities and mind. We want them to take us seriously and treat us as equals and not just chase us around for our bodies and physical looks." A Muslim woman who covers her head is making a statement about her identity. Anyone who sees her will know that she is a Muslim and has a good moral character. Many Muslim women who cover are filled with dignity and self esteem; they are pleased to be identified as a Muslim woman. As a chaste, modest, pure woman, she does not want her sexuality to enter into interactions with men in the smallest degree. A woman who covers herself is concealing her sexuality but allowing her femininity to be brought out. The question of hijab for Muslim women has been a controversy for centuries and will probably continue for many more. Some learned people do not consider the subject open to discussion and

consider that covering the face is required, while a majority are of the opinion that it is not required. A middle line position is taken by some who claim that the instructions are vague and open to individual discretion depending on the situation. The wives of the Prophet (S) were required to cover their faces so that men would not think of them in sexual terms since they were the "Mothers of the Believers," but this requirement was not extended to other women. The word "hijab" comes from the Arabic word "hajaba" meaning to hide from view or conceal. In the present time, the context of hijab is the modest covering of a Muslim woman. The question now is what is the extent of the covering? The Qur'an says: "Say to the believing man that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty; that will make for greater purity for them; and Allah is well acquainted with all that they do. And say to the believing women that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty; and that they should not display their beauty and ornaments except what must ordinarily appear thereof; that they should draw their veils over their bosoms and not display their beauty except to their husbands..." (Qur'an 24:30-31) These verses from the Qur'an contain two main injunctions: A woman should not show her beauty or adornments except what appears by uncontrolled factors such as the wind blowing her clothes, and the head covers should be drawn so as to cover the hair, the neck and the bosom. Islam has no fixed standard as to the style of dress or type of clothing that Muslims must wear. However, some requirements must be met. The first of these requirements is the parts of the body which must be covered. Islam has two sources for guidance and rulings: first, the Qur'an, the revealed word of Allah and secondly, the Hadith or the traditions of the Prophet Muhammad (S) who was chosen by Allah to be the role model for mankind. The following is a Tradition of the Prophet: "Ayesha (R) reported that Asmaa the daughter of Abu Bakr (R) came to the Messenger of Allah (S) while wearing thin clothing. He approached her and said: 'O Asmaa! When a girl reaches the menstrual age, it is not proper that anything should remain exposed except this and this. He pointed to the face and hands." (Abu Dawood) The second requirement is looseness. The clothing must be loose enough so as not to describe the shape of the woman's body. One desirable way to hide the shape of the body is to wear a cloak over other clothes. However, if the clothing is loose enough, an outer garment is not necessary. Thickness is the third requirement. The clothing must be thick enough so as not to show the color of the skin it covers or the shape of the body. The Prophet Muhammad (S) stated that in later generations of his ummah there would be "women who would be dressed but naked and on top of their heads (what looks like) camel humps. Curse them for they are truly cursed." (Muslim) Another requirement is an over-all dignified appearance. The clothing should not attract men's attention to the woman. It should not be shiny and flashy so that everyone notices the dress and the woman. In addition there are other requirements: Women must not dress so as to appear as men.

"Ibn Abbas narrated: 'The Prophet (S) cursed the men who appear like women and the women who appear like men.'" (Bukhari) Women should not dress in a way similar to the unbelievers. The clothing should be modest, not excessively fancy and also not excessively ragged to gain others admiration or sympathy. Often forgotten is the fact that modern Western dress is a new invention. Looking at the clothing of women as recently as seventy years ago, we see clothing similar to hijab. These active and hard-working women of the West were not inhibited by their clothing which consisted of long, full dresses and various types of head covering. Muslim women who wear hijab do not find it impractical or interfering with their activities in all levels and walks of life. Hijab is not merely a covering dress but more importantly, it is behavior, manners, speech and appearance in public. Dress is only one facet of the total being. The basic requirement of the Muslim woman's dress apply to the Muslim man's clothing with the difference being mainly in degree. Modesty requires that the area between the navel and the knee be covered in front of all people except the wife. The clothing of men should not be like the dress of women, nor should it be tight or provocative. A Muslim should dress to show his identity as a Muslim. Men are not allowed to wear gold or silk. However, both are allowed for women. For both men and women, clothing requirements are not meant to be a restriction but rather a way in which society will function in a proper, Islamic manner. In the Quran: " And say to the believing women that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty; that they should not display theri beauty and ornaments except what (must ordinarily) appear thereof, that they should draw theri veils over their bosoms adn not display their beauty except to their husbands, tathers, husbands' fathers, sons, or their sisters' sons, or their women or the slaves whom their right hand possess or male servants free of physical needs, or small children who have no sence of the shame of sex; and that they should not strike their feet in order to draw attention to their hidden ornaments. And O ye Believers! Turn ye all together towards Allah(S.W.T) that ye may attain Bliss (Surah 24:31) 10 jenis seksaan yang menimpa wanita SEPULUH jenis seksaan yang menimpa wanita yang diperlihatkan kepada Nabi Muhammad SAW ketika melalui peristiwa Israk dan Mikraj, membuatkan Rasulullah menangis setiap kali mengenangkannya.

Doa wanita itu lebih makbul daripada lelaki kerana sifat penyayang yang lebih kuat daripada lelaki. Ketika ditanya kepada Rasulullah SAW akan hal tersebut, jawab baginda, "Ibu lebih penyayang daripada bapa dan doa orang yang penyayang tidak akan sia-sia." 2. Wanita yang solehah (baik) itu lebih baik daripada 1000 lelaki yang soleh. 3. Barangsiapa yang menggembirakan anak perempuannya, darjatnya seumpama orang yang sentiasa menangis kerana takutkan Allah .Dan orang yang takutkan Allah SWT akan diharamkan api neraka ke atas tubuhnya.

4. Wanita yang tinggal bersama anak-anaknya akan tinggal bersama saya (Rasulullah SAW) di dalam syurga. 5. Barangsiapa membawa hadiah (barang makanan dari pasar ke rumah lalu diberikan kepada keluarganya) maka pahalanya seperti melakukan amalan bersedekah. Hendaklah mendahulukan anak perempuan daripada anak lelaki. Maka barangsiapa yang menyukakan anak perempuan seolah-olah dia memerdekakan anak Nabi Ismail. 6. Syurga itu di bawah telapak kaki ibu. 7. Barangsiapa mempunyai tiga anak perempuan atau tiga saudara perempuan atau dua anak perempuan atau dua saudara perempuan lalu dia bersikap ihsan dalam pergaulan dengan mereka dan mendidik mereka dengan penuh rasa takwa serta sikap bertanggungjawab, maka baginya adalah syurga. 8. Apabila memanggil akan dirimu dua orang ibu bapamu, maka jawablah panggilan ibumu terlebih dahulu. 9. Daripada Aisyah .a." Barangsiapa yang diuji dengan sesuatu daripada anak-anak perempuannya lalu dia berbuat baik kepada mereka, maka mereka akan menjadi penghalang baginya daripada api neraka.

10. Wanita yang taat berkhidmat kepada suaminya akan tertutuplah pintu-pintu neraka dan terbuka pintu-pintu syurga. Masuklah dari mana-mana pun pintu yang dia kehendaki dengan tidak dihisab. 11. Wanita yang taat pada suaminya, maka semua ikan-ikan di laut, burung di udara, malaikat di langit, matahari dan bulan semua beristighfar baginya selama mana dia taat kepada suaminya serta menjaga solat dan puasanya.

12. Aisyah .a berkata, "saya bertanya kepada Rasulullah, siapakah yang lebih besar haknya terhadap wanita?" Jawab Rasulullah SAW "Suaminya." " Siapa pula berhak terhadap lelaki?" Jawab Rasulullah SAW, "Ibunya."

13. Perempuan apabila sembahyang lima waktu, puasa di bulan Ramadhan, memelihara kehormatannya serta kepada suaminya, masuklah dia dari pintu syurga mana sahaja yang dikehendaki.

14. Tiap perempuan yang menolong suaminya dalam urusan agama, maka Allah SWT memasukkan dia ke dalam syurga terlebih dahulu daripada suaminya (10,000 tahun). 15. Apabila seseorang perempuan mengandung janin dalam rahimnya,maka beristighfarlah para

malaikat untuknya. Allah SWT mencatatkan baginya setiap hari dengan 1,000 kebajikan dan menghapuskan darinya 1,000 kejahatan. 16. Apabila seseorang perempuan mulai sakit hendak bersalin, maka Allah SWT mencatatkan baginya pahala orang yang berjihad pada jalan Allah. 17. Apabila seseorang perempuan melahirkan anak, keluarlah dia dari dosa-dosa seperti keadaan ibunya melahirkannya. 18. Apabila telah lahir anak lalu disusui, maka bagi ibu itu setiap satu tegukan daripada susunya diberi satu kebajikan. 19. Apabila semalaman seorang ibu tidak tidur dan memelihara anaknya yang sakit, maka Allah SWT memberinya pahala seperti memerdekakan 70 orang hamba dengan ikhlas untuk membela agama Allah SWT. 30 Larangan untuk Wanita 30 Larangan untuk Wanita Semoga mendapat manfaatnya 1.

Masalah bermula apabila berhadapan dengan persepsi keluarga dan rakan-rakan setelah berubah dari wanita yang berpakaian "liberal" kepada wanita yang menutup aurat sepenuhnya seperti yang disarankan oleh Islam. Pandangan serong terhadap pemakaian tudung labuh dan jubah menyebabkan siswi tersebut berasa tersisih bukan sahaja terhadap pandangan masyarakat umum, tetapi pandangan siswi-siswi yang bergiat dalam program berunsurkan dakwah. Penerimaan terhadap perubahan berlaku agak sukar akibat sikap double-standard dan kronism yang diamalkan. Disebabkan mereka telah mendapat tarbiyah sekian lama dan menganggap diri adalah terbaik, agak payah untuk menerima orang yang baru mengenal erti tarbiyah yang sebenar. Apatah lagi berhadapan dengan ibu yang tidak memahami sehinggakan si ibu menyuruh siswi tersebut kembali kepada pakaian lama. Penyelesaian Bercakap tentang perubahan, ia bukanlah satu perkara yang mudah semudah mengalihkan sebatang pen dari satu meja ke meja yang lain. Apatah lagi berubah dari segi pemakaian yang melibatkan persepsi masyarakat sekeliling terhadap personaliti baru yang ingin dibentuk. Adalah penting adanya pemahaman terhadap matlamat perubahan dan pengorbanan yang tinggi agar terus istiqamah dengan perubahan. Apa yang dilakukan oleh siswi tersebut adalah hijrah kepada kebaikan dan memerlukan ketahanan mental dan mujahadah yang tinggi. Dalam satu perubahan, sokongan dari segi spiritual, emosi dan mental diperlukan bukan sahaja dengan berharap kepada tuhan, tetapi juga dari masyarakat sekeliling khususnya mereka yang faham tentang Islam. Meskipun siswi tersebut baru mengenal erti tarbiyah dan mula bergiat dalam program berunsurkan dakwah, rakan-rakan dalam organisasi dakwah haruslah faham dan tidak memandang diri sebagai individu yang bertaraf tinggi sehingga tidak layak berdamping dengan mereka yang baru menerima hidayah. Di sini, pentingnya pemahaman tentang konsep inverse response (respon songsang ~ rujuk Pemikiran Sistemik) dalam kehidupan seharian. Setiap sesuatu yang bersifat drastik memerlukan daya yang tinggi

untuk diterima dan konsep bersabar terhadap time delay (masa lengah yang diperlukan sebelum satu sistem berfungsi) diperlukan. Sesuatu perubahan memerlukan visi yang jelas berdasarkan ilmu wahyu agar kekuatan diperoleh walaupun keadaan sekitar sukar menerima. Bagaikan susu yang sebelumnya bercampur dengan najis, kuman, urea dan darah di dalam sistem badan seekor lembu akhirnya keluar sebagai susu yang suci yang mendatangkan kebaikan kepada peminumnya. Dapat disimpulkan bahawa bagaimana sukarnya susu itu keluar dari badan seekor lembu melalui proses perahan untuk bebas dari unsur-unsur negatif, begitulah sukarnya sesuatu perubahan untuk dilaksanakan. Persekitaran memerlukan masa untuk menerima sesuatu kelainan. Adalah penting pemahaman tentang aurat kerana ia melibatkan penjagaan penglihatan yang berkaitan secara langsung dengan hati dan fikiran yang dipengaruhi oleh nafsu dan syaitan. Aurat yang dimaksudkan bukan sahaja terhadap kaum wanita, tetapi juga kepada kaum lelaki di mana sesetengahnya yang kurang sensitif menganggap aurat lelaki tidak berapa penting sehingga memakai seluar yang menampakkan lutut ketika bersukan. Bagi seorang wanita, aurat adalah perkara yang sangat besar dan skop aurat adalah lebih luas pada tubuh mereka berbanding lelaki. Manakala dalam institusi kekeluargaan pula, ibu bapa memainkan peranan penting terhadap pentarbiyahan setiap anak. Bahkan, mereka juga perlu ditarbiyah dan diberi peringatan agar tidak alpa akan arus dunia semasa yang membawa kepada kebatilan. Haba Pendam Tentu dan Konsep Aurat Dalam Fizik, konsep ketahanan mental, emosi dan spiritual ditekankan dalam bab haba pendam tentu dan berhubungkait dengan penjagaan aurat. Jika dikaji tentang formula yang digunakan: J = mc x tetha J ialah haba pendam tentu: Kuantiti haba yang boleh diserap oleh suatu objek yang mempunyai jisim tertentu dalam suatu kuantiti masa. m ialah jisim objek yang menerima perubahan suhu. c ialah keupayaan haba tentu: Keupayaan suatu objek yang mempunyai jisim tertentu menerima suatu kuantiti suhu dalam suatu kuantiti masa. tetha ialah perubahan suhu.

Eksperimen 1: Haba Pendam Tentu (Fizik Tingkatan 4- BAB 2.3) Abstrak/Pengenalan

Dalam kajian ini, "eksperimen" dilakukan ke atas 3 jenis wanita: wanita A- wanita bertudung labuh, berjubah dan menjaga lengan daripada terdedah, wanita B-wanita memakai pakaian biasa tetapi masih menutup aurat dan wanita C- wanita yang lebih selesa memaparkan rambut yang lurus setelah melalui teknik rebonding, menunjukkan keputihan dan kehalusan kulit lengan, mendedahkan kerampingan bentuk badan dan berhias laksana model-model muka hadapan majalah hiburan. Tujuan Mengkaji tahap ketahanan spiritual, mental dan emosi wanita terhadap tekanan yang diberi berdasarkan cara pemakaian. Hipotesis Semakin baik cara pemakaian yang diamalkan mengikut tatacara yang disyorkan dalam Islam, semakin tinggi tahap ketahanan mental, emosi dan spiritual atas tekanan yang diberi. Begitu juga sebaliknya. Inferens Wanita A mempunyai tahap ketahanan yang tinggi, wanita B mempunyai tahap ketahanan yang sederhana dan wanita C mempunyai tahap ketahanan yang lemah. Pembolehubah manipulasi c atau keupayaan suatu objek yang mempunyai jisim tertentu menerima suatu kuantiti suhu dalam suatu kuantiti masa mempunyai hubungan dengan ketahanan seseorang terhadap tekanan yang dikenakan. Bercakap tentang konsep aurat, ia mempunyai kaitan dengan suhu. Ramai yang membuka aurat atas alasan panas dan lebih suka bebas dari suatu kongkongan. Seorang pensyarah wanita di UIA dari New Zealand (bukan Islam) mempersoalkan istilah baju kurung. Adakah istilah baju kurung tercipta kerana sifatnya "mengurung" wanita di Malaysia? Sehinggakan ramai wanita sekitar KL dan Selangor lebih suka memakai jeans dan t-shirt? Pembolehubah malar m atau jisim objek yang menerima perubahan suhu. Anggap jisim, bentuk badan, bangsa, agama, dan ciri-ciri fizikal ketiga-tiga jenis wanita adalah sama. tetha atau perubahan suhu. Ia adalah tekanan yang diberi secara automatik oleh Pencipta alam di mana wanita berhadapan dengan perubahan biologi seperti haid (datang bulan), nifas (keadaan yang berlaku semasa bersalin), menopause (berlaku pengurangan hormon estrogen) dan tekanan persekitaran (kerja, pelajaran dan lain-lain).

Pembolehubah bergerakbalas J atau kuantiti haba yang boleh diserap oleh suatu objek yang mempunyai jisim tertentu dalam suatu kuantiti masa. Ia berkaitan dengan setinggi mana tahap ketahanan spiritual, emosi dan mental ketigatiga jenis wanita terhadap daya tekanan yang diberi. Kaedah 1) Melalui pemerhatian kritikal terhadap perubahan personaliti ketiga-tiga jenis wanita dalam suatu jangka masa. 2) Bertanya secara berhikmah tentang perspektif ketiga-tiga wanita terhadap cara pemakaian. 3) Eksperimen diulang keatas wanita-wanita lain yang mempunyai ciri yang sama. 4) Eksperimen juga dilakukan keatas 2 jenis lelaki: Lelaki A- Lelaki yang menutup aurat dengan baik dan Lelaki B- Lelaki yang suka mendedahkan pusat sewaktu berlengging dan memaparkan lutut serta paha sewaktu bersukan atau berjalan-jalan. Pemerhatian 1) Wanita A kelihatan humble, tenang, happy, ceria, lembut, sopan, pendiam, bercakap ketika perlu, berhati-hati dengan perhubungan dan berkemampuan mengawal perkataan yang dikeluarkan dari mulut. 2) Wanita B juga kelihatan tenang, ceria, happy tetapi kadangkala kelihatan risau dan bimbang seperti ada sesuatu yang tak kena. Ada masanya terlepas juga kata-kata yang kurang baik ketika marah. Tapi kembali normal setelah beberapa ketika. Penulis yang berjurusan senibina pernah menegur seorang studiomate wanita yang menggunakan spray dengan cara yang salah ketika menyembur model yang dibuat sehingga menyebabkan cat yang terhasil rosak. Lalu dalam keadaan marah, penulis dikatakan penyibuk walaupun niat penulis ingin menegur kesilapan yang dibuat. Penulis terus berlalu kerana tahu tetha sedang dikenakan terhadap studiomate tersebut. Selepas kejadian tersebut, keadaan kembali normal. 3) Wanita C kelihatan kelam-kabut, mempunyai stail tersendiri, kurang menjaga perkataan yang dilafazkan, overexcited, mudah melenting, agak sombong, materialistik dan sosial. 4) Lelaki A kelihatan normal, tetapi lelaki B agak stylo, mudah marah, ego yang terlampau tinggi, sukar menerima nasihat, memandang rendah atas kemampuan orang lain dan lebih agresif. Kesimpulan

Dari eksperimen yang dijalankan, wanita dan lelaki yang mempunyai nilai J yang tinggi adalah mereka yang menjaga cara pemakaian dengan baik mengikut syariat Islam dan sensitif terhadap aurat. Seperti dalam formula yang diberi: J = mc x tetha Oleh itu, hipotesis diterima. Mengkaji Fizik melalui perspektif Islam Dalam usaha penyampaian Islam kepada individu yang faham tentang Islam, individu yang kurang faham tentang Islam dan individu yang tidak faham tentang Islam, pendekatan melalui ilmu duniawi berdasarkan kaedah saintifik dan empirik adalah salah satu cara yang sesuai kerana tak semua daripada mereka akan menerima jika menyampaikan melalui ilmu Tauhid. Masalah berlaku di Malaysia di mana persepsi masyarakat berubah iaitu belajar adalah untuk bekerja, bukan belajar untuk mencari ilmu. Adalah menghampakan situasi yang sama berlaku pada mereka yang mengambil jurusan agama dan mereka yang menghafal kalam-kalam Allah. Jika perspektif ini berterusan, mereka tidak akan mampu untuk mengislamisasi ilmu yang dipelajari, melakukan integrasi antara ilmu duniawi dan ilmu Islam, menyampaikan ilmu pada peringkat antarabangsa agar mesej Islam sampai ke serata tempat seterusnya mencapai kecemerlangan menyeluruh. Seperti yang tertera dalam misi UIA iaitu Triple ICE (Integrations, Islamizations, Internationalizations dan Comprehensive Excellence), adakah pelajar UIA akan mencapai misi UIA andai masih lagi belajar untuk bekerja? Bukan untuk pelajar UIA sahaja, malah kepada pelajar institusi lain sekali. Tidak malukah kita kepada mereka yang bukan Islam mengkaji ilmu sains melalui al-Quran lantas memeluk Islam atas kesedaran? Di manakah perginya reputasi pelajar Islam yang cuba dipertahankan? Fikirkan... 6 criteria for observing hijaab According to Qur?an and Sunnah there are basically six criteria for observing hijaab: 1. Extent: The first criterion is the extent of the body that should be covered. This is different for men and women. The extent of covering obligatory on the male is to cover the body at least from the navel to the knees. For women, the extent of covering obligatory is to cover the complete body except the face and the hands upto the wrist. If they wish to, they can cover even these parts of the body. Some scholars of Islam insist that the face and the hands are part of the obligatory extent of ?hijaab?.but i was wondering if allah created races of colour and gave features to reconginse each other ,then why do some cover the face from the front ....sum times i can understand depending on circumstances and where the person is?i did read a verses on this in the qur'aan but i cant remember at this moment.

All the remaining five criteria are the same for men and women. 2. The clothes worn should be loose and should not reveal the figure. 3. The clothes worn should not be transparent such that one can see through them. 4. The clothes worn should not be so glamorous as to attract the opposite gender. 5. The clothes worn should not resemble that of the opposite gender. 6. The clothes worn should not resemble that of the unbelievers i.e. they should not wear clothes that are specifically identities or symbols of the unbelievers? religions. Hijaab includes conduct and behaviour among other things Complete ?hijaab?, besides the six criteria of clothing, also includes the moral conduct, behaviour, attitude and intention of the individual. A person only fulfilling the criteria of ?hijaab? of the clothes is observing ?hijaab? in a limited sense. ?Hijaab? of the clothes should be accompanied by ?hijaab? of the eyes, ?hijaab? of the heart, ?hijaab? of thought and ?hijaab? of intention. It also includes the way a person walks, the way a person talks, the way he behaves, etc. Hijaab prevents molestation The reason why Hijaab is prescribed for women is mentioned in the Qur?an. Surah Al-Ahzab:ch33:v59 "O Prophet! Tell thy wives and daughters, and the believing women that they should cast their outer garments over their persons (when abroad); that is most convenient, that they should be known (as such) and not molested. And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. The Qur?an says that Hijaab has been prescribed for the women so that they are recognized as modest women and this will also prevent them from being molested. manny_s2001 (Man,28, manchester, Greater Manchester, United Kingdom ) A Muslim Girls Guide For Dealing With Guys A Muslim Girls Guide For Dealing With Guys (From one Sister To Another) Life is full of crazy obstacles, but the one that will probably bug you the most and always be getting in the way is the opposite gender. Here, from one sister to another, is a Muslim girls guide for how to deal with guys. No Touching! Muslims are forbidden to touch any non-Mahram (Mahram is your dad, brothers, fatherin-law, husbands, grandfathers, and the siblings of your parents) person of the opposite gender. That

means no patting on the back, no hand shaking, no pushing, no shoving, no holding hands, and obviously no kissing and all that. If youre in a difficult situation where you think someone will try to shake your hand, the best thing to do is just smile and say, "My people dont shake hands" and then explain why. And why, is because we believe a womans touch is a privilege and she doesnt just share it with anyone. No Flirting! Not even with Muslims, not even in an Islamic school, especially not in a masjid! Flirting means that youre saying or doing things on purpose that make the other person attracted to you. Theres no set criterion for what flirting is, but any girl knows what is and how to do it. Muslim women are supposed to behave better than the average woman, who has to be beautiful for all the men around her all the time, who are trapped behind their looks and only judge themselves to be worthy if half the men they know are in love with them. A wise dude once said, "Dont start the mower unless you intend to cut the grass". If you dont want a guys advances, then dont do anything to earn them. Theres no point in throwing yourself all over guys and trying to seduce half the world. You really only want to marry one guy, and you want to spend the rest of your life with him, and chances are he isnt going to be some dork you fluttered your eyelashes at in high school. No Boyfriends! As a Muslim, you know that having a boyfriend is haraam because it counts as Zina fornication. Fornication, in easy English, means sexual sin. Allah expressly forbids romantic or sexual relationships outside of marriage. When people go against that rule, then you get the typical western society where people play sexual merry-go-round with each other, giving each other STDs, using and abusing each other, and destroying the sacredness of marriage as an institution. You cant even be sort of engaged to a guy, and then "date" to get to know each other. In Islam, non-Mahram men and women arent allowed to be alone together (that includes talking on the phone!), to touch (not even shake hands), or even gaze at each other. It doesnt matter if the guy you like is Muslim, a great guy and the Prince of England, you cant date him. No Boyfriends! The easiest way to ensure that you dont end up falling in love with some guy before youre ready to get married is to avoid making friends with boys. Of course in school you have to interact with boys all over the place, but that doesnt mean you should be best buds with them. Probably 90% of relationships begin from friendships. Chances are youre not ready for marriage, your parents arent ready to let you get married, youre still in school and your crush is not the sort of fellow you want to spend the rest of your life with, so just avoid being friends with him in the first place. It really is the best formula for saving yourself from needless temptation. When you have to talk to boys in school as teammates, lab partners, group members, and peers, it's best to maintain a distance. That means that you dont confide in them, you dont let down your guard, you dont unnecessarily engage them in needless conversation, dont joke around, and never flirt. Yeah it may be a little hard, but this is your afterlife were talking about. So many great sisters have put themselves in really sticky situations because they allowed a boy to get to know them, and either ended up liking the boy, or having the boy like them. once that happens you either end up becoming a pair

(which is HARAAM!), or having to end your friendship. Instead of letting it get to that point, and then having to kill a friendship that you probably worked hard on cultivating, you should just stop it before it begins. There are plenty of great girls all around who can be your friends and if you really think only a guy will understand your problem, then talk to your REAL brother, or your father, or an uncle. No Talking on the Phone with Boys! In Islam its forbidden for non-related guys and girls to be alone together because there is the chance for physical zina, vocal zina, and zina of the eyes. That means, with no one there to watch you guys except that boogery shaitaan, then you might be tempted to actually DO something, or say gross things, or just stare at each other all lustily. With that in mind, its also a safe bet to assume that talking on the phone with non-Mahram guys is a no-no too. Why? Because unless youve both got it on speaker-phone and youre chaperoned by a responsible person, then youre still kind of "alone" with him. The people in your house cant hear what hes saying to you, and his family cant hear what youre saying to him. Theres a chance for some bad stuff then, so just avoid it. Not to mention, having some dude saying things into your ear that no one else can hear would be gross in real life, why is it okay for him to talk into your ear via the telephone? For the most part its just too intimate. Be Disaffected! What does that mean? Disaffected means un-affect-able. That means that nothing a dude can say can hit your nerves, make you blush, or get a reaction out of you. It also means that you are uninterested in what they do as well. Imagine yourself being in an airplane looking down on the scenery below. Youre a little interested in whats going on down there, and it may look really nice, but you know that to get to the scenery you have to jump off the plane. Like the scenery miles below you, the guy may look really nice, but you know that to get him you have to jump off the plane ...errr...commit spiritual suicide, and though the fall may be fun, you will eventually hit the ground 600 meters below and go -splat on Judgment Day. Maybe even sooner. Short of becoming an ice-princess, being disaffected involves putting up a mental wall between you and all of male-kind. They dont know your thoughts and you dont care for theirs. You can interact with guys at school within the bounds of Islam, but always maintain a formal distance. Dont ask a guy how his infected toe is doing. Dont give him a hug when he looks down. Dont offer to help him with his homework. Dont go out of your way to remind him that you exist, and that youre not half bad looking. Even if you dont feel like behaving, make yourself behave anyway, your afterlife is important enough to discipline yourself for. The safest philosophy when dealing with guys is remembering this "Hes not what I want, so why should I do anything to make him interested in me? Thatll just make for a painfully awkward situation and its not worth the sin anyhow." Remember that youre always being watched! Would you act all giggly and stupid with boys if the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) could see you? No, right? Because youd feel like an ungrateful idiot for disregarding the religion that Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) took so much pain for just to deliver to you. Well, imagine how ungrateful it is to act like a supreme idiot when <U>Allah </U>can see you all the time, and its really stupid to disregard the

religion that Allah prescribed, the favors Hes bestowed upon you. How dumb is it to take the eyes that Allah gave you and do things with them that He told you not to? (like goggle at boys?) How much stupider is it that He can see you doing this, and you know it! You have no secrets! Not because Big Brother (whoever that is) is watching you, but because every single thing you ever did will become public domain on the Day of Judgment, and youll be brought to trial to defend what you did. Just dont do anything that you wouldnt want your parents, your siblings, your teachers, your friends, and the whole world to know about, ok?

We see in them the fulfilment of Allaahs promise to make the Quraan easy to memorize and remember, as Allaah, may He be exalted, says (interpretation of the meaning):

And We have indeed made the Quraan easy to understand and remember, then is there any that will remember (or receive admonition)?[al-Qamar 54:22] O sister who has memorized the Quraan, congratulations! Allaah has used you to preserve His Book on earth. You are one of those through whom Allaah has kept the promise He made when He said (interpretation of the meaning): Verily We: it is We Who have sent down the Dhikr (i.e., the Quraan) and surely, We will guard it. [al-Hijr 15:9] O sister who has memorized the Quraan, do not underestimate the worth of what you have done. What is in your heart is knowledge. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): Nay, but they, the clear aayaat, are preserved in the breasts of those who have been given knowledge [al-Ankaboot 29:49] In your heart is a Book which cannot be washed away with water. It was said in the sacred Scriptures concerning this ummah that their gospel is in their hearts. O (female) bearer of the Quraan, you are indeed envied by people. This envy is the kind of envy that is permissible. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: You should not envy anybody except for two: a man to whom Allaah has given the Quraan, so he recites it night and day, so that another man says, If I were given what he has been given I would so the same as he does; and a man to whom Allaah has given wealth, so he spends it appropriately, and another man says, If I were given what he has been given I would so the same as he does. (Reported by al-Bukhaari, 6974) The permissible kind of envy is al-ghibtah, which means wishing for what another person has, without wishing for him to lose that blessing. O sister who has memorized the Quraan, O citron-blossom of this world The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: The believer who reads the Quraan is like the citron, whose fragrance is good and whose taste is good. (Reported by al-Bukhaari, no. 5007; Muslim, 1328. Muslim entitled the chapter in which this report is found, Baab Fadeelat Haafiz al-Quraan the virtue of the one who memorizes the Quraan). The phrase its fragrance is good and its taste is good attributes the quality of taste to eemaan (faith) and the quality of fragrance to recitation of the Quraan (because taste is more

tangible and longer lasting than fragrance). The wisdom behind using the citron as a metaphor rather than any other fruit that also has both a good taste and a good fragrance is because the peel of the citron is used as medicine and the oil that is extracted from its seeds has a number of benefits. It was said that the jinn do not approach a house in which there are citrons, which is an appropriate analogy to the Quraan, which the shayaateen (devils) do not approach. The outside of its seeds is white, which is an appropriate analogy for the heart of the believer, and it has other qualities: it is big, it looks nice, it may be of different colours, it is soft to the touch, it is delicious to eat, it has a pleasant flavour, it aids digestion and it is good for the stomach. O sister who has memorized the Quraan, do you know the status you have reached? Your mother Aaishah reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: The one who reads the Quraan when he has already learned it by heart is with the righteous, noble travellers (safarah). (al-Bukhaari, 4556). The travellers are the angels, because they travel to Prophets with messages from Allaah. Or it was said that the safarah are the scribes who write down deeds. The righteous are the obedient who obey Allaah, and the proficient is the one who reads well and has memorized perfectly, who does not hesitate when reading or find reading difficult, because he has memorized it well and reads it proficiently. Al-Qaadi said: saying that he is with the angels could mean that in the Hereafter he will have a position close to that of the travelling or recording angels, because he shares their attribute of carrying the Book of Allaah. Or it could mean that he does what they do and follows the same path as them. The proficient reader is of a higher status and will receive a greater reward, because he is with the travelling or recording angels, and it was not reported anywhere that this reward and high status will be given to anybody else. How can one who does not pay attention to the Book of Allaah, memorizing it, reciting it properly and often, and conveying it to others, catch up with one who does pay attention to it until he becomes proficient? And Allaah knows best. Abd-Allaah ibn Amr reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: It will be said to the companions of the Quraan, Read and increase in status, recite as you used to recite in the world, for your status will be at the last aayah you recite. (Reported by al-Tirmidhi, 2838. He said, this is a saheeh hasan hadeeth). It will be said refers to the time when the person enters Paradise. The companion of the Quraan means the one who persistently recited it and acted in accordance with it. Increase in status means ascend through the levels of Paradise. Recite means read with tarteel (slowly and precisely), and do not rush in reading. As you used to recite in the world means with proper pronunciation (tajweed) of the letters and pausing where one should pause. Your status will be at the last aayah you recite al-Khattaabi said: it was reported that the number of aayaat of the Quraan will be like the number of levels in Paradise in the Hereafter, and it will be said to the reader, Go up as many levels as the aayaat of the Quraan that you recited. So whoever recited the entire Quraan will reach the highest level in Paradise in the Hereafter, and whoever recited a part of it will reach a level

commensurate with what he read. The extent of the reward will depend on the amount of Quraan read. O sister who has memorized the Quraan, congratulations! You have filled your heart with the words of Allaah and have responded to His invitation. Abd-Allaah ibn Masood (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: This Quraan is a banquet from Allaah, so take as much of it as you can. I know of nothing more devoid of goodness than a house in which there is nothing of the Book of Allaah. The heart in which there is nothing of the Book of Allaah is as desolate as a house in which nobody lives. (Reported by al-Daarimi, 3173). O (female) bearer of the Quraan, blessings and congratulations be upon you! If you are sincere now, you will be saved from the punishment of Hell. Abu Umaamah used to say: Read the Quraan and do not be content merely to have these Masaahif (copies of the Quraan) hanging up. Allaah will not punish a heart that has memorized and understood the Quraan. (Reported by al-Daarimi, 3185). O (female) bearer of the Quraan, congratulations! For the Book of Allaah will intercede for you and will be your adornment on the Day of Resurrection, and if you remain steadfast it will be greater than the adornment you wear now. Abu Hurayrah reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: The Quraan will come on the Day of Resurrection and will say, O Lord! Adorn him, so he will be given a crown of honour to wear. Then it will say, O Lord! Increase it, so he will be given a garment of honour, then it will say, O Lord! Be pleased with him, so Allaah will be pleased with him. Then it will be said to him, Read and increase in status, and for every aayah his reward will increase. (Reported by al-Tirmidhi, 2839. He said, This is a saheeh hasan hadeeth). O mother of the woman who has memorized the Quraan, congratulations to you for your daughter! Buraydah (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: I was sitting with the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and I heard him say: Learn Soorat al-Baqarah, for learning it is a blessing and neglecting it is regret, and the magicians cannot contend with it. Then he kept quiet for a while, then he said, Learn Soorat al-Baqarah and Aal Imran, for they are the zahraawaan which will shade the one who learns them on the Day of Resurrection, as if they are two clouds, or two rows of birds spreading their wings. The Quraan will meet its companion on the Day of Resurrection when his grave is opened for him, looking like a pale man, and it will say to him, Do you know who I am? He will say, I do not know you. It will say to him, Do you know who I am? He will say, I do not know you. It will say, 'I am your companion the Quraan, who made you thirsty on hot days and kept you awake at night. Every merchant will benefit from his trade, and today you will benefit too. He will be given power in his right hand and immortality in his left, and on his

head will be placed a crown of dignity. His parents will be given two garments the like of which could never be made by the people of this world and they will say, How did we earn these? It will be said, Because your child learned the Quraan. Then it will be said to him, Read and go up through the levels and rooms of Paradise. He will keep on ascending as long as he reads or recites. (Reported by Imaam Ahmad, 21892; classed as hasan by Ibn Katheer; see also al-Silsilat al-Saheehah by al-Albaani, 2829). O sister who has memorized the Quraan, staying at the top is harder than getting there. Abu Moosa reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: Keep checking your knowledge of the Quraan, for by the One in Whose hand is my soul, it is more easily lost than a camel that is hobbled. (Reported by al-Bukhaari, 4645). The phrase translated as keep checking your knowledge means reviewing the Quraan regularly and reading it constantly, making oneself review it and not falling short It is in the nature of camels to try as much as possible to break loose, so if one does not take care to keep them tied, they will run away. Similarly the one who has memorized Quraan will lose it if he does not take care of it, and this tendency is worse than the tendency of camels to break free. Ibn Battaal said: this hadeeth is in accordance with the two aayaat (interpretation of the meanings): Verily, We shall send down to you a weighty Word [al-Muzzammil 74:5] and And We have indeed made the Quraan easy to understand and remember [alQamar 54:22]. So whoever focuses on the Quraan and tries to memorize and review it, it will be made easy for him, but whoever neglects the Quraan, will lose whatever he has learned of it. (Fath al-Baari). Ibn Umar said: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: The Quraan is like a camel that is hobbled. If its owner (or companion) takes care of it he will keep it with him, but if he slackens, it will run away from him. (Reported by al-Bukhaari, 4643). O sister who has memorized the Quran, do not give up this high status after attaining it. Ibn Hajar (may Allaah have mercy on him) said in al-Fath: The salaf differed concerning the issue of forgetting the Quraan. Some of them said that this is a major sin. Al-Dahhaak ibn Muzaahim said: There is no one who learns the Quraan and then forgets it, but it is because of a sin that he committed, because Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): And whatever of misfortune befalls you, it is because of what your hands have earned [alShoora 42:30], and forgetting the Quraan is one of the greatest misfortunes that can happen It was reported that Abu Aaliyah said: We used to think that one of the greatest sins was for a man to learn the Quraan then neglect it until he forgets it. Its isnaad is jaayid. It was reported via Ibn Seereen with a saheeh isnaad that they used to dislike the one who forgot the Quraan and speak against him in the strongest terms Neglecting to recite Quraan

results in forgetting the Quraan, and forgetting it indicates that one does not take care of it and that one is neglecting it Neglecting the Quraan leads to one returning to ignorance and returning to ignorance after gaining knowledge is a terrible thing indeed. Ishaaq ibn Raahawayh said: It is disliked (makrooh) for a man to go more than forty days without reading the Quraan. O sister who has memorized the Quraan, study it much and live according to it. Al-Dhahabi said in al-Siyar: Abu Abd-Allaah ibn Bishr said: I have never seen anyone who was better at recalling whatever he wanted of the aayaat of the Quraan than Abu Sahl ibn Ziyaad. He was our neighbour and he would always pray and read Quraan at night. Because he studied the Quraan so much, it is as if it was before his eyes. O sister who has memorized the Quraan, so long as you have learned it by heart, let it protect all your faculties from committing sin. Al-Qurtubi (may Allaah have mercy on him) said in his Tafseer: The bearer of the Quraan and seeker of knowledge must fear Allaah with regard to himself and be sincere towards Allaah in his deeds. If he does anything that is disliked, he must hasten to repent and return to Allaah. Let him start to be sincere in his pursuit of knowledge and in his deeds, for the reserve and caution required of the bearer of the Quraan is greater than that which is required of others, just as he will have a reward that is greater than that of others. O (female) bearer of the Quraan, do not let the fact that you have memorized the Quraan tempt you to forget about your actions. It was reported by Shubah from Qutaadah that the believer who reads the Quraan and acts in accordance with it will be with the righteous honourable travellers. This addition explains the meaning, and the analogy applies to the one who reads the Quraan and does not go against its commands and prohibitions, not the one who merely recites it. O (female) bearer of the Quraan, appreciate the value of what is in your heart and give it its due. As you have been elevated to this high status by memorizing the Quraan, you have duties and responsibilities commensurate with this status. Memorizing the Quraan is not a trophy to be hung up or a certificate to be decorated, nor is it a prize to be given out. It is a trust which must be fulfilled. The bearer of the Quraan should have the best of attributes and characteristics. Al-Fudayl ibn Ayyaad said: The bearer of the Quraan is the bearer of the banner of Islam. He should not pass time in idle pursuits with those who pass their time in this way, he should not be negligent with those who are negligent, and he should not indulge in foolish talk with those who talk foolishness, out of respect for the rights of the Quraan. He should be strong at heart, steadfast in his adherence to the truth. When the Muslims fought the liar Musaylimah and their standard-bearer Zayd ibn al-Khattaab (may Allaah be pleased with

him) was killed, Saalim the freed slave of Abu Hudhayfah came forward to carry the flag. The Muslims said, O Saalim, we are scared lest we are defeated because of you. He said, What a bad bearer of the Quraan I would be if you were to be defeated because of me. When his right hand was cut off, he carried the banner in his left. When his left hand was cut off, he held the banner in his arms, saying, Muhammad is no more than a Messenger [Aal Imraan 3:144 interpretation of the meaning] and And many a Prophet fought (in Allaahs Cause) and along with him (fought) large bands of religious learned men [Aal Imraan 3:146 interpretation of the meaning]. When he was killed, it was said to his companions, What happened to Abu Hudhayfah? It was said, He was killed. (Al-Jihaad by Ibn al-Mubaarak) O (female) bearer of the Quraan, beware of looking down on those who have not memorized the Quraan, for maybe the one who does little but has a valid excuse will succeed (attain Paradise), whilst the one who memorized the Quraan but became proud will be a loser. Abd-Allaah ibn Amr said: A man came to the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and said: Teach me what to recite, O Messenger of Allaah. He told him, Recite three of the soorahs that start with Alif, Laam, Ra. The man said, 'I am old, my heart is tired and my tongue is heavy. He said, Then recite from the soorah that starts with Ha-Meem. The man said the same as he said before. He said, Recite three of the soorahs that start with the word sabbih (glorify). The man said the same as he said before. Then the man said, But teach me, O Messenger of Allaah, a comprehensive soorah. So he taught him to recite Idha zulzilat al-ard (Soorah al-Zalzalah, #99). When he had finished, the man said, By the One Who sent you with the truth, I shall never do more than that, then he went away. The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said, The man has succeeded, the man has succeeded. (Reported by Abu Dawood, 1191. The men of its isnaad are thiqaat and Eesa ibn Hilaal alSadafi was classed as thiqah by Ibn Hibbaan. Al-Haafiz said in al-Taqreeb: sudooq. Al-Bukhaari and Abu Haatim said: his hadeeth is not saheeh, so perhaps because of this al-Albaani reported this hadeeth in Daeef Sunan Abi Dawood, 300). O (female) bearer of the Quraan, do not expect praise and appreciation from people. Try not to let their praise and adulation influence you, and always be sincere towards Allaah. Yes, they should respect the bearer of the Quraan, because she has the words of Allaah in her heart, and it is a part of glorifying Allaah to respect the bearer of the Quraan, who neither goes to extremes nor neglects the Quraan. Ibn Abd al-Barr (may Allaah have mercy on him) said: The bearers of the Quraan are surrounded by the mercy of Allaah, honoured with the words of Allaah and clothed with the Light of Allaah. Whoever supports them supports Allaah, and whoever is aggressive towards them disrespects the rights of Allaah, may He be exalted. The author of al-Fawaakih al-Dawaani quoted the words of the scholars: Backbiting about a scholar or a bearer of the Quraan is more serious than backbiting about anyone else. At the same time, the bearer of the Quraan should not feel too proud about his memorization of the Book, for his lack of sincerity may mean that he is no longer counted as one of them.

Duaa O Allaah, Originator of the heavens and the earth, Owner of Majesty and Honour and Glory that never fade away, we ask You, O Allaah, O Most Merciful, by Your Glory and the Light of Your Countenance, to guide these women who have memorized the Quraan and to make their hearts always remember Your Book, as You have taught them. Help them to recite it in a manner that will earn them Your pleasure. O Allaah, Originator of the heavens and the earth, Owner of Majesty and Honour and Glory that never fade away, we ask You, O Allaah, O Most Merciful, by Your Glory and the Light of Your Countenance, we ask You to light their way with the light of Your Book, to make their tongues recite its words, to purify their hearts and expand their hearts with it, to help them ease their distress and the distress of all the Muslims, male and female, through it. May Allaah bless our Prophet Muhammad.
