S:like that woman, everytime i sit with her, she tells me to wear hijab
R:well wearing hijab that would be a good thing to do.
S :says who ?
R:it's in the qur'an, isn't it ?
S :yeah, she did quoted me someting, but it's not a big sin anyway. helping people and praying is more important.
R :True, but big sins start from small sins.
S :That's a good point but what you wear is not important. what's important is having a good and healthy heart.
R :Then why you spending hour every morning fixing up ? you spend so much money on cosmetics,-not to mention all the time you spend on fixing your hair and low-carb dieting-.?
S :but i dont like hijab, it limits my freedom!
R :but the lotion and other cosmetics set you free ? what's your definiton of freedom anyway ?
S :freedom is doing whatever you'd like to do
R :No, freedom is doing the right thing without fearing other people
S :look! i've seen so many people who dont wear head scarves and are good people. and so many who wear head scarves and are bad people.
R :so what ? there are people who are nice to you are alcoholic, does that mean you should be an alcoholic?"
S :i don't want to be a fanatic i am oke with the way i am without this (head scarf)."
R :then, you're a secular fanatic. and extremist in disobeying God.
S :you dont get it. if i wear hijab, who would marry me ?
R :so all these people who wear hijab never get married ?
S :okay, how about if i get married and my husband doesn't like it and wants mo te remove it ?
R :a man who not respected value, they are not worthed to married.
S :but then, who would hire me ?
R :a company that respects people for who they are.
S :not after 9/11.
R :yes, after 9/11. There are so many muslim women working in hospitals and the corporate world with the head scarf.
S :why you reduce religion to people cloth, anyway ?
R :why do you reduce womenhood to high heels and lipstic colours ?
S :You didn't answer my question.
R :in fact i did. Hijab is not a piece of cloth. its obeying . its courage and faith in action . and its true womenhood. but your short sleeves in tight pants..
S :that's called fashion . did you live on the cave or something ?
R :you think men control women using hijab ?
R :spesificly, how ?
S :by telling women how and what to wear
R :doesn't tv, movies and magazines tell you what to wear and how to be attractive, isn't that control? pressuring you to wear what they want you to wear ? they're not just controlling you they are also controlling the market.
S :what do you mean ?
R :i mean the man who designed the magazines are telling you to look skinny like the women on the cover
S :I dont get it, what is hijab has to do with these products ?
R :it has everything to do with that . dont you see ? hijab is a threat to you, consumerism. winning spend billions of dollars to look skinny. by standards of fashion. And then, here is Islam, tell you 'trash all that nonsense and focus on your soul!. Dont worry about what men think of your appearance, slap their flirty eyes with the headscarf!
