Hi mysticSaint, welcome. You are quite right, Zora comes from the arabic Zahra.
Not bad, she does behave sometimes like spoiled princess. ๐Ÿ˜€

LOL! I’m not sure what the caption would be for the first photo, but the second one immediately made me think of, “Gas mask? What makes you think I’m wearing a gas mask?”
I know… I’m twisted. But I think I’ve adjusted to it quite well. ๐Ÿ˜€

Heba, welcome to my blog.
No, people are not rude here, but they can take a joke. Even if they are muslim.

The fact that you are a recent convert may be the reason you can’t take a silly joke for what it is and just have a good laugh.
It also explains your misinformation about niqab being ”part of your religion” for it is not. It is a carry-over Jewish custom from before Islam.
No doubt the Saudi-sponsored salafi scholars who instructed you in Islam have told you it is part of religion, but if you can manage to Think For Yourself, and Read, as you are instructed to by Islam, you will find that the Quran, also known as ”the word of God”, does not require anything but modesty, covering your breasts and down to your knees. Anything else is ancient custom or personal preference. Men are usually very keen to place restrictions on women. That still doesn’t make it religion.
On the contrary: proclaiming the ancient Jewish custom of face-covering to be Islamic religion is bidah.

actually Aafke.. in the quran it DOES mention the covering of the face..
Holy Quran Chapter 33 Surah Ahzaab verse 59:
O Prophet, enjoin your wives and daughters, and the believing women, that they should cast their outer garments over their persons. It is expected that they will thus be recognized, and not molested. Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.

Holy Quran Chapter 24 Surah Noor verse 31:
And say to the believing women that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty; that they should not display their beauty and ornaments except that which is displayed of itself; that they should draw their veils over their bosoms and not display their beauty except to their husbands, their fathers, their husbands’ fathers, their sons, their husbands’ sons, their brothers, or their brothers’ sons, or their sisters’ sons, or their women, or the slaves, whom their right hands possess, or male servants free of physical needs, or small children who have no sense 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 that ye may attain Bliss.

There are two opinions amongst the scholars in Islam as to what does the phrase except that which is displayed of itself?.. . One opinion is that it means the face and the hands may be left uncovered, and the other opinion is that the face also has to be covered, and only the hands may be left uncovered.

Sunan of Abu-Dawood Hadith 4092 Narrated by Aisha, Ummul Mu’minin
Asma, daughter of AbuBakr, entered upon the Messenger of Allah (saws) wearing thin clothes. The Messenger of Allah (saws) turned his attention from her and said:?..O Asma, when a woman reaches the age of menstruation, it does not suit her that she displays her parts of body except this and this?.. and he (saws) pointed to her face and hands

Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 1.1 Narrated by Umar bin Al Khattab
I heard Allah’s Messenger (saws) saying, “The reward of deeds depends upon the intentions and every person will get the reward according to what he has intended.?…

The most accepted opinion is that if the women covers everything except her face and her hands, she would be following the Command of Allah; and if she chooses to cover her face, then it would be considered purest and closest to the Command of Allah Subhanah.

The difference between the covering and leaving uncovered the face of a believing woman in hijaab is not one between right and wrong, but rather between what is best and what is good. If the believing woman covers her whole body and chooses to leave her face uncovered, it is good, acceptable and in accordance with the guidance of the Quran and the Sunnah; but if she covers her whole body including her face with a niqaab, it would be best and closest to the Command of her Lord.

Surah Al-Tawbah 9:65 If you ask them (about this), they declare: “We were only talking idly and joking.” Say: “Was it at Allah, and His Ayat and His Messenger that you were mocking? Make no excuse; you disbelieved after you had believed. If We pardon some of you, We will punish others among you because they were criminals

@ S,

If you want to put YOUR responsibility of Islam on some random dude with a paper certificate on your head who calls himself a scholar (I can get a paper certificate saying I am a plant too.), go right ahead.

For me I think it is a lazy and irresponsible way for a Muslim to derive what God gave you a brain for.

He gave you a brain to think, rationalise and seek. If you are going to quote scholars about some issue I can give you 100 other so-called scholars who fatwa or give opinion which is the complete opposite.

Truth is, God gave you Islam so you can seek Him and decide to follow Him consciously and aware not so you can rely on a bunch of rich quacks in cultural headgear (why can’t an Imam dress like a normal person? Why must Islam be an ‘Arab’ religion? A religion is a religion, not a culture.) to tell you how, what, when, who.

If you believe a woman has the right to cover to face it can be with anything as long as she maintains her modesty. That piece of clothing up there is just that, a piece of clothing. It is not a ‘uniform’ of Islam.

Putting a piece of clothing on a dog doesn’t mean anything than what it is. A piece of clothing on a dog.

You want to put meanings on it and get offended only shows your ignorance in Islam and the spirit of Islam.

For the sake of argument Aafke did not pull out any verse or anything and ‘mocked’ it.
He put some clothing, covered a dog’s face and called it a ninja.

If I argue with you the meaning of a verse it doesn’t mean I have mocked it. I have done what God would like me to do with His Word, think, rationalise and seek sincerely the meaning He would mean from the verse.

Mocking it means the obvious – but nowhere here have I seen anyone mocking it.
Some people think that you MUST wear the face covering, some don’t. Some believe that you don’t even need to cover your head as the said verse wrote ‘BOSOMS’.
But in engaging in meaningful debate (not the holier-than-thou competitions of I-am-holier-than-you-and-I’m-going-to-paradise-smug engaged by Muslims all over the world I find) is not to mock but to sincerely seek, and in seeing so many Hadiths of God’s view of our intentions as opposed to our actions (you can pray 5 times a day and not really mean it, or pray 5 times a day because you’re afraid of hell – not sincere, basically) I believe God will not judge you based on your clothing but your sincerity, awareness and intention.

God didn’t create us human beings to be doom and gloom creatures. Even the prophet Muhammad would engage in jokes with his companions and wives.

DELEte this picture of the dog with the niqab!

Why should I? What’s your problem? The niqab is not an idol, it’s just a piece of cloth.
And anyway, if you have made it into an idol, you shouldn’t worship idols right?

It’s only right for my dog to wear a niqab, she is so cute, she has the most adorable dewy eyes… and her nose… Her nose is so beautiful that if she were to go about without niqab she would cause fitna and zina all over!
It’s only proper that she shows some modesty and protects the poor, weak, spineless men from zina.
