The muslim idea is that they "tempt" men with their beauty & need to be covered. I say BS, that muslim MEN should be able to control themselves, whether a woman is veiled or not. Do you remember a few yrs back, a school for girls in one of those middle east countries caught on fire with students inside, & muslim MEN would NOT let them out of the school to escape the fire cos they weren't properly veiled-they even chased those girls who got out back INTO the fire! Every girl in that school burned to death......now THAT'S sick sick sick!
a muslim woman is supposed to wear a veil in front of all men who are not related to her.think abt it like this........if u had pure gold or some other precious jewels,u wouldnt carry 'em around outside.u wud keep 'em safe.a woman in islam is more precious than jewels.thats y we wear a hijab or veil when we go outside or are in front of men who are not related to us.ibut that doesnt mean men can stare at uncovered women as much as they want.they r told to lower their gaze when it comes to unknown women.and woman arn''t suppoed to stare at men as much as they want either.the thing is that woman are more shy.u dont hear abt a woman raping a man.so thats y woman are supposed to cover themselves.men attack first or its in a mans nature.besides.men are made to do hard work and they wouldnt be able to do that if they wore a hijab.its not the culture.its in our religion.but wat jaysonmooney said is wrong.were not OWNED by men.they are our protectors.
To keep Jen from looking at them. Apparently they (the men) have no personal control over themselves when women are involved. That's why at worship all the men are in the front and the woman are in the back. Apparently even when praying to their god they won't be able to stay focused if there are any women within the visual range.
Not all Muslim women have to wear burkas or veils.. this is a common misconception with many people. I have many Muslim friends who prefer not to wear them, however, we are in America. In countries like Iran and Saudi Arabia it is required. My one Muslim friend who prefers to wear one said she believes certain features of a woman bring out the unwanted temptations for a man. She prefers to show her hair and body to her husband. I say, "To each his own".. Who am I to judge? If it works for them, so be it!
