Hijab.


I try hard not to write anything about this, but since I stumbled upon many blogs about this, I think I should give my opinions about this. This going to be long, I warn you. And I am breaking my promise while typing this.


Here in Malaysia, we have a lot on our platter to feast on. The ‘multi-everything‘ society offers you more than you might see in the neighboring countries. When we talk about women in Islam, it is almost impossible to disconnect the hijab issue that created such huge outcries from the four corners of the world. We can vividly see on the television how the Muslim women fight against the government for their right in donning the headscarves in France. The same issue also risen in Singapore, Canada, Turkey and other countries. And such women who fight for the holy cause, never failed to impress me. And as a Muslim, I'm beyond proud of them.


Malaysia, that's so-called a Muslim country, the hijab is still can be considered as an issue. Indeed, for some Muslims, they consider the obligation of donning the hijab as a ‘litmus test' as whom devout, and who's not. But I strongly oppose that idea because, here in Malaysia, you still can see Muslim girls, clad in Islamic outfit; Hijab and Baju Kurung, commit nasty acts at the park or in the car. These girls, in my opinion, better properly fold their headscarf and put it in their closet because it's such a disgrace to the other women who donned in their Hijab and try hard to preserve the good name of Islam. Period. "At least I wear hijab", that's what some said when they commit such lewd sinful acts in the public.


mew


I try not to prejudge women that clad not in Hijab, because sometimes they are much, much better than those who donned the hijab but knows nothing about the sacred name that tags along with it; Islam. One thing for sure, the debate on Hijab or headscarf or tudung or whatsoever you may call it, will never end. I will never know how hard to put the scarf on because I'm a brother, but I am beyond proud and gratified for you, sisters who donned in hijab and proud of it.


 


 


يَا أَيُّهَا النَّبِيُّ قُل لِّأَزْوَاجِكَ وَبَنَاتِكَ وَنِسَاء الْمُؤْمِنِينَ يُدْنِينَ عَلَيْهِنَّ مِن جَلَابِيبِهِنَّ ذَلِكَ أَدْنَى أَن يُعْرَفْنَ فَلَا يُؤْذَيْنَ وَكَانَ اللَّهُ غَفُورًا رَّحِيمًا


"O Prophet! Tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to draw their cloaks (veils) all over their bodies. That will be better, that they should be known (as free respectable women) so as not to be molested. "(Al-Ahzab: 59)





So, to those who's wearing Hijab and preserving their religion's dignity, I would like to say thank you and may God always give the best for you. And to those who are still hesitate to clad in it, take your time and find some concrete reasons before you make any decisions regarding it but remember, it's a fard.

misterTAJ said...

pondering....

"GALS!!!! kite kene pakai tudung nih!!!"

yeah... susah bler most of the feminists are the western women... and i once told nazz that some people who are not wearing tudung are far better then those who are wearing tudung... then he said to me like master yoda... during the judgment day, those who wore cover their aurat pass the first judgment...

moja said...

Tatie,

ai lebiuh tu.

moja said...

misterTAJ,

anda diexcludedkan. Don't worry.

I don't agree in FEMINISM. and he's maybe right, aurat comes first.

Can you imagine how hard these women fight for the right in wearing a piece of scarf? and these people care not other people's stigmas, they only care how'll they look in the eyes of God. Peiod.

Wearing tudung is a fard.
Solat is a fard.
and Puasa is also a fard.

if ppl can do the other part of obligations, why can't just putting a tudung in this un-oppressed country?

Hmm...

misterTAJ said...

:D dont be so serious babe (intentionally calling u babe ngeh ngeh)

well feminism was the catalyst of the women freedom and too bad freedom are define as feeling comfortable with their sexuality and skin... (i think la) but not that i am a feminist...

hey... i know how hard it is to fight for something... i have been fighting for that special something and i know how it feels to be denied... :)

and there are some other causes of not wearing tudung... (my sis had this penyakit that cause her to have seizure) :)

and god willing... someday they will realize :)

tp i really hate org yg pakai tudung but wearing weird kind of clothes... sigh... talking bout fashion victims...

Dearest Moja,
Saya tahu semua orang yang tidak menutup aurat ( cause i'm one of them ) tahu yang rambut itu dosa, sehelai rambut dipandang sekali oleh seorang lelaki bukan muhrim = 60,000 tahun di neraka. Kalau berjuta helai rambut, berjuta mata? Nauzubillah. Saya juga tahu batas- batas aurat yang lain, sentuhan- sentuhan dengan bukan muhrim, ah terlalu banyak untuk dibebelkan kat sini. Ini belog kamu, Moja,bukan belog saya.
Saya tahu aurat. Saya faham apa itu seksa api neraka. Mungkin saya juga akan bertudung satu hari nanti, Insya Allah. Seorang wanita cuma untuk suaminya, kan ?
Dan ya, kat Malaysia sekarang banyak sangat yang bertudung tapi tak mengahyati maksud menutup aurat. Bertudung tapi baju ketat membuahkan dada. Jeans ketat menyakitkan mata. Berpeluk sana sini dengan lelaki yang sah- sah bukan suami. Dan, saya ada ramai kawan perempuan bertudung sebab rambut tidak cantik, dan lepas direbonding tudung hilang entah ke mana. Saya benci tengok perempuan bertudung di dunia nyata tapi tidak di Myspace/ Friendster / Facebook. Saya mual melihat teman serumah saya bertudung tetapi tidak pernah sembahyang sekali pun. Saya mahu muntah melihat perempuan bertudung membuka aurat di depan ipar duai / sepupu- sepupu dan yet, mereka sceptical terhadap orang yang tidak bertudung.
Bagi saya, tudung bukan saja menutup rambut, tapi harus melambangkan keperibadian seorang muslimah. Ah, doakan semoga saya sempat bertaubat/ menerima hidayah sebelum menutup mata.
Panjang omelan saya. Patutkah saya membelog pasal hal ini nanti ?
I definitely will.
:)

ykajane,

Sebab itu lah seperti saya katakan, tudung itu bukan litmus paper, untuk tunjukkan mana yang beriman atau tidak. Sebab di malaysia ni ade 1001 spesies.

Betul, saya setuju, tudung itu peribadi seorang muslimah, and saya dikelilingi oleh rakan2 yang tidak mengenakan tudung. lagi ramai agaknya dari yang bertudung. Tapi, mereka adalah rakan2 yang baik, cuma menunggu masa untuk meletakkan tudung di atas kepala.

Bagi saya, lebih baik tunggu masa, ikhlaskan diri dan hati untuk bertudung, bukan kerana nak pergi kuliah saja, atau hadiri kenduri kahwin. Biar kuat niat dihati, baru pakai, bukan kerana trend atau terpaksa. kan?

Hehehe. Sebab tu la best bercakap ngan anda, jane. hehehehe!
cepat lah membelog!
tapi rasanya pointnye tetap sama.kan?

safwan said...

"tudung bukan litmus paper."

Its just a personal opinion.

nashrah said...

moja said...

Nash,

Hahaha.. yeah, hijabians rock, since kite semua xde yg flawless, marilah membaiki diri sendiri! Kan? Hehehe!

jangan sedih2! xbest!
:d

Azie said...

woww, the H word huh?
specialnyaa Hijab. :)

moja, what u wrote here is so true. i wonder why uve tried hard not to write about it.

Hijab.
its more than just a covering of hair and aurat.
its a rahmat by Allah swt to muslimahs. n when they'v actually appreciated that rahmat that is when they'll really understand the true meaning of hijab.

again, i repeat, its not just a covering of hair.
when hijabians really understand the true meaning of hijab, they'll make it as their identity of an obeying muslimah, of a shield of doing things that they shouldnt do, of being blind, deaf and mute because of Allah swt.

thats the true meaning of appreciating the gift of having hijab.

when those who dont realize the real meaning of wearing it, thats where all the shame happens.

so how do ppl realize? how can we change the mentality of, "alah, org pakai tudung perangai lagi buruk!" ?

again like i mentioned tadi, they have to syukur and accept it as a rahmat by Allah n really2 embrace wearing it and understand why Allah made them wear it.

n apabila alasan itu digunakan untuk tidak memakai tudung, sesungguhnya mereka perlu sedar bahawa mereka yg mengubah ketetapan dan peraturan Allah untuk sesuaikan dengan hawa nafsu sendiri, mereka akan rugi. sangat rugi.nauzubillah.

Allah Swt maha bijaksana dan apa yang ditentukan untuk kita, itulah yang sebaiknya untuk kita.

congrats moja for bringing up this issue. i believe it has been useful to many.

maaf kerna seperti biasa, panjang lain macam je komen saya. HAHA.
oh n i agree with safwan. a very cool and precise term u have there for tudung.

p/s: apa yg ditulis adalah peringatan untuk diri saya sendiri.

Azie said...

omg, baru nampak.
panjang gileee!! HAHAHAA.

ingat blog sniri ke??
maaf enchek moja!! :p

moja said...

Azie,

Hahahaha..That IS long!!!
It's ok la, lagi panjang lagi bagus!
:D

I tried to hindr from writing in regard of this sebab I'm afraid that my opinion is wrong or whatsoever, and it might offend certain people. Hehehe..


p/s: saya tulis perigatan untuk siapa eyh? sendiri tak paka tudung. Hahahaha!
