Praise be to Allah Who sent down the book and ordered chastity and hijab therein. I bear witness that there is no God but Allah alone without any partner, He forgive sin, accepts repentance, and He is severe in punishment. Whoever is steadfast on God’s guidance receives recognition and reward, and he who does wrong is promised a painful torment. I bear witness that Muhammad is his servant and Messenger; a prophet given wisdom, sound judgment in speech and decision, and ordered lofty virtues and manners. May the peace and blessings of God be upon him, his families and companions and those who follow them in righteousness till the day of final return. And after that, O dear Muslims I admonish myself and you all to fear Allah- the Exalted. Whoever fears Allah, He honours, helps and establishes his heart and soul on the truth and finally admit him into paradise. Allah says: } تِلْكَ الْجَنَّةُ الَّتِي نُورِثُ مِنْ عِبَادِنَا مَن كَانَ تَقِيّاً { مريم: 63 “Such is the Garden which We give as an inheritance to those of Our servants who guard against Evil..” (19: 63) Islam met the Arab society, as common with every other society, holding a view that the woman is an object of lust and enjoyment to quench sensual urge. It held a downgraded view of her judging from human point of view. Islam also met a total collapse in the society with regards to sexual relationship, aesthetic sense of taste and vain glorification of carnality and flesh. The family system was equally in a total shamble and ruin. The Qur'anic text referred to nudity as remnant of the pre-Islamic era, Allah, the exalted said: }وَقَرْنَ فِي بُيُوتِكُنَّ وَلاَ تَبَرَّجْنَ تَبَرُّجَ الْجَاهِلِيَّةِ اْلأُولَى) {الأحزاب 33) And stay quietly in your houses, and make not a dazzling display, like that of the former Times of Ignorance” (33: 33). Dazzling display- At-Tabar-ruj, is when women expose their bodies and clothes and jewelries in the sight of men. Maqatil bn Hayyaan commented on the verse thus: “it refers to a woman who adorns the veil but do not tie it well whereby her necklaces, earrings and neck are exposed.” Mujahid said: “when a woman goes out and walk before men, that is At-Tabar-ruj”. Qatadah commented that: “They (women) had a peculiar walk style and flirt manner but Allah warned against all these.” (Tafsir bn Kathir, 6/410) Ignorance as it is, is not confined to a particular period in time rather it is a specific social condition with peculiar concepts of life, which are possible to exist anytime and anywhere as manifesting precipitates of ignorance. In accordance with this standard mentioned above, we find that we now live as blind in an ignorant period, with brutal feeling, animalistic disposition, falling and dragging humanity to the abode of humiliation. We realize that there is no virtue nor purity and no fortune for a society lucked in such life and fail to apply the divine approach in achieving cleanliness and getting rid of Ignorance. CLOTHES AND ADORNMENT; GOD’S FAVOUR ON MAN God has bestowed upon his servants the grace to wear clothes and adornment, God says: "يَا بَنِي آدَمَ قَدْ أَنْزَلْنَا عَلَيْكُمْ لِبَاسًا يُوَارِي سَوْآتِكُمْ وَرِيشًا وَلِبَاسُ التَّقْوَى ذَلِكَ خَيْرٌ ذَلِكَ مِنْ آيَاتِ اللَّهِ لَعَلَّهُمْ يَذَّكَّرُونَ “الأعراف 26 “O ye Children of Adam! We have bestowed raiment upon you to cover your shame, as well as to be an adornment to you. But the raiment of righteousness,- that is the best. Such are among the Signs of Allah, that they may receive admonition!” (7:26) Libas- refers to the clothes that are used to cover the private parts, while Rish refers to the outer adornments used for purposes of beautification. Therefore, the first type (i.e Clothes) is essential while the second type (i.e adornment) is complimentary. The raiment of righteousness is truly a translation of faith and fear of Allah. `Abdur-Rahman bin Zayd bin Aslam commented on the Ayah: وَلِبَاسُ التَّقْوَى (and the raiment of righteousness...) "When one fears Allah, Allah covers his errors. Hence the `Libas of Taqwa' (that the Ayah mentions).'' THE CULTURE OF NUDITY AMONG WOMEN AS ONE OF THE GREATEST REASON FOR THE DECLINE IN ISLAMIC COMMUNITY: Dear Muslim community, the foe of our religion recognizes the woman as one of the stronghold of the Islamic society, and realizing her as one of the most dangerous means of demolition and destruction in the Islamic Society. They plan and plot of false distortion of this nation and her identity, and to destroy her morals until it reached the present level of humiliation. Humiliating the kings and princes, our lands went under the hands of the army of military occupation. Louis IX clearly made a frank statement on the day he was captured in the families of Ibn Luqman in Mansoura in Cairo that: “It was no longer possible to capture Muslim countries with armies, it imperative to seek for new manner of invasion to wage war against the Muslims, and intellectual war was far more dangerous than military war. THE GOAL OF ISLAM IN THE LEGISLATION OF HIJAB By Allah, Islam has not forbid dazzling display for women nor has it made hijab mandatory on her except to preserve and protect her from the abusers and insolence of the insolent, such that she is not become an object of adulterous look, in order not to desecrate her body by this traitor. God wanted only chastity and modesty for her. Allah made her like the pearl and corel in its legislation surrounded by constant repeller, so as not to stretch the hand of the wrongdoer towards her. Allah the Almighty says: ذلِكَ أَدْنَى أَنْ يُعْرَفْنَ فَلاَ يُؤْذَيْنَ}(الأحزاب 59) “that is most convenient, that they should be known (as such) and not molested.” (33:59) God ordered believing women to cover up and fully covering the Almighty said: يَا أَيُّهَا النَّبِيُّ قُلْ لِأَزْوَاجِكَ وَبَنَاتِكَ وَنِسَاءِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ يُدْنِينَ عَلَيْهِنَّ مِنْ جَلَابِيبِهِنَّ ذَلِكَ أَدْنَى أَنْ يُعْرَفْنَ فَلَا يُؤْذَيْنَ وَكَانَ اللَّهُ غَفُورًا رَحِيمًا (الأحزاب 59 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. (33:59) Hijab is the robe a woman clothes herself with and cover her head and all her body. THE JUDGEMENT OF AT-TABAR-RUJ- NUDITY DAZZLING DISPLAY The culture of Nudity is a great source of destruction in the world and the hereafter and an attitude of the inmate of hell. The prophet said: “Two classes of the people of hell whom I have not seen include; a people having with them whips like the tails of cow with which they beat people, and women who are scantily dressed walking tiltedly and with seductive bodily movement, their heads are as the hump of the camel, they will not enter paradise nor find (perceive) its fragrance, even though its fragrance is perceived from so and so distance. (Muslim). The prophethood of the messenger of Allah is confirmed by this prophecy which has perfectly described the women as it is seen in our world today. Kaasiyaat ‘Aariyaat, means- scantily dressed- they wear light transparent clothes which show their body complexion, or clothes that are mini or micro in nature, she is dressed up but in reality she is naked. (Maa'ilaat) walking tiltedly: means aberrant on obedience to God, and all requirement for modesty and covering up stylish tilting in their walk steps. Mumeelat means, attracting the hearts of men towards their display unfortunately and unknowingly to them, Nudity display earns them curse and condemnation and expulsion from the mercy of God. Abdullah ibn Umar said: the Messenger of Allah said: It shall appear by the end of my nation, women who will be dressed in clothes, but are naked, on their heads will be humps as of the camel, ‘do curse them’, they are damned. O Muslims, part of the culture of ignorance in our society today is the adorning of men’s wear by the womenfolk and vice versa. Islam forbids this act in the following hadith. From Abdullah bn ‘Amr, he said: I heard the messenger of Allah said “Such is not part of us, among the women one who imitates the men, and not also, he who imitates the women folk among men” (Ahmad, Tabraani, Abu Na’eem) From Abu Hurairah (RA), he said: “The messenger of Allah curse the man who wears the clothes of women, and the woman who wears the clothes of men.” (Abu Dawud, Ibn Majah, Hakim, Ahmad) One of the most serious hadith related from the Messenger of Allah on this critical issue is: From Abdullah Bin Umar (RA) said: “The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said: “Three sets of people will not enter paradise and Allah will not look towards them on the day of resurrection: the disobedient to parents, a woman who behaves manly and imitate men and the Cuckold who is not jealous over his wife” (Al-haakim, Al-bayhaqi, Ahmad, Al-nasaa'i and Al-bazzaar). May God bless you all and myself with the Holy Qur'aan, and benefit us all from the lessons there in. Having said all you heard, I seek forgiveness from Allah for me and for you all, Muslims, engage in seeking forgiveness from Him, He is All-forgiving, Most- merciful. Praise be to Allah Who blessed us with the favour of the world and religion and made us Muslims. I testify there is no god except Allah solely exclusive without any partner and I testify also that Muhammad is His servant and messenger, may Allah bestow His blessing on him, his household and all his companions and those who follow them in righteousness till the day of recompense. O Muslims, fear Allah in the right way of piety. Today we live in hard times, and in misfortunes, disasters and setbacks. Know that one of the causes of escape from all these is the enjoining of good and forbidding of evil. While one of the causes of downfall and destruction is keeping quietness over evil. Allah says: فَلَمَّا نَسُوا مَا ذُكِّرُوا بِهِ أَنْجَيْنَا الَّذِينَ يَنْهَوْنَ عَنِ السُّوءِ وَأَخَذْنَا الَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوا بِعَذَابٍ بَئِيسٍ بِمَا كَانُوا يَفْسُقُونَ}(الأعراف : 165) When they disregarded the warnings that had been given them, We rescued those who forbade Evil; but We visited the wrong-doers with a grievous punishment because they were given to transgression. (7:165) The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) equally warned against negligence in the matter of the promotion of virtue and prevention of vice, he said: “Verily you will be commanding goodness and you will be forbidding evil or else probably Allah will cause punishment from Him to descend on you and you will call on him (in prayer) and He will not respond to you.” (Narrated by Al-tirmidhi and Al-baani classed it as Saheeh) Also Bukhari and Muslim related that the Messenger of Allah peace be upon him was asked: “Will we perish while the righteous ones live amongst us? He said: “Yes, when evil becomes increasingly more”. (i.e: immorality and debauchery). The Prophet (SAW) said, "The example of the person abiding by Allah's order and restrictions in comparison to those who violate them is like the example of those persons who drew lots for their seats in a ship. Some of them got seats in the upper part, and the others in the lower. When those in the lower part needed water, they had to go up to bring water (and that troubled the others), so they said, 'Let us make a hole in our share of the ship (and get water) saving those who are above us from troubling them. So, if the people in the upper part left the others do what they had suggested, all the people of the ship would be destroyed, but if they prevented them, both parties would be safe." Everyone should also know that consequential punishment will not be the lot of the oppressors alone, rather it will also affect all those who kept quiet concerning their evil practices and all those who live within their neighbourhood. وَاتَّقُواْ فِتْنَةً لاَ تُصِيبَنَّ الَّذِينَ ظَلَمُواْ مِنْكُمْ خَاصَّةً )الأنفال.(25 “And fear tumult or oppression, which affecteth not in particular (only) those of you who do wrong: and know that Allah is strict in punishment”. (8:25) The children of Israel have deserved expulsion from God’s mercy because of their negligence in the suppression of vices. Allah says: لُعِنَ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ مِنْ بَنِي إسْرائِيلَ عَلَى لِسَانِ دَاوُودَ وَعِيسَى ابْنِ مَرْيَمَ ذَلِكَ بِمَا عَصَوْا وَكَانُواْ يَعْتَدُونَ (78) كَانُواْ لاَ يَتَنَاهَوْنُ عَنْ مُنْكَرٍ فَعَلُوهُ لَبِئْسَ مَا كَانُواْ يَفْعَلُونَ (المائدة( 78-79). “Curses were pronounced on those among the Children of Israel who rejected Faith, by the tongue of David and of Jesus the son of Mary: because they disobeyed and persisted in excesses. Nor did they (usually) forbid one another the iniquities which they committed: evil indeed were the deeds which they did”. (5: 78- 79) O Allah reform our religion which remain the peak of our affairs, reform our world in which we live, reform our hereafter where lies our return, and make life better for us in all goodness and make death a station of rest and succor from all evil. O Allah reform our women and all muslim women, O Allah beautify them with the hijab and modesty, take nudity and nakedness and free mix of the two sexes away from them. O Allah, honour Islam and the Muslims, humiliate idolatry and the idolaters, and destroy hypocrisy and hypocrites, O Allah help Your religion, Your Book and the Sunnah of Your prophet (PBUH) and all Your believing servants.
