Hijab - Part 1

E-mail Print PDF

Hijab: Islam’s version of the Nazi swastika.  Part 1: Text-women are offensive

The Hijab symbolizes 2 things:

1) Islam’s repression and loathing of women

2) Islam’s Arab supremist totalitarian political power and aims.

Medium SizeIt is far more than 'a piece of clothing!!'   Text, attitudes and practices that underlie Islam’s repressive gender apartheid which demands the covering of females head to toe but not men, must be questioned.  It isn’t just a matter of ‘religious freedom,’ after all Islam allows child marriage, slavery, scourging/beating women, etc and hopefully we won’t allow these!    I write this in response to a recent Muslim ‘fashion parade’, an al-Age article (7/8/07) displaying a brightly hijabed, heavily made-up woman (against Islamic dictates!) promoting her Muslim fashion magazine and of course another Muslim victim piece from Walheed Ali (25/8/07 Australian)!  Endless false promotion-no hard questions! (4 parts 1-offensive women, 2-evil women, 3-unsustainable excuses, 4-consequences).

Hijab as a political symbol:  Islamic text insists that women are covered and don't draw attention to themselves or improve themselves (no make-up, hair colour, plucking..).  Their attire must not reveal the form of their body. They must not have any dazzling display, walk in a way that attracts attention or travel more than a short distance from home without a male 'protector'.  Yet we see Muslim women in bright, colourful hijabs with form revealing clothes, make-up and no 'protector.'  This makes the hijab a political statement, as other dictates associated with 'modesty' are frequently flouted.  Many Muslim women claim they only BEGAN wearing the hijab AFTER the 9/11 terrorist attacks!


Susan Carland (Waleed Aly's wife) playing Sheherazade  and Jihad Jack's wife wearing the real thing.
 Likewise these women also ignore other dictates – ideally they wouldn't listen to music or watch movies, DVDs, videos, plays, art ….as Mohammad banned the playing of musical instruments and any representations of humans or other animals (Bukhari hadiths).  No doubt they will be happy to be married as a child to a man with other wives whom he can beat (sura 4.34) and ‘plough’ as he likes (sura 2.223,  2.222) and divorce by uttering a few words!  There is text (hadiths and law) supporting clitoridectomy but I suspect many western Muslim women skip this one too, although its practice is growing in the west!(see earlier articles FGM)  The hijab is selectively worn while many other dictates are ignored!
Ladies! It's Fun Time!!
C'mon ladies - it's fun time!!

The hijab is forced into our schools and streets under the guise of religious freedom and tolerance but this is simply Islam forcing its political presence into our classrooms, onto children and in our face!  It pushes totalitarian Islam into the visible foreground of our societies.

Why would allah create repulsive females that need to be covered?

a) Girls/Women's bodies are offensive, pudendum:

At SchoolThe word "woman" in Urdu is 'awrat'. In Iran she is called zaifeh (weak).

Women are awrah-offensive! Tragically Islam regards the whole women as 'awrah'.  The Encyclopedia of Islam defines 'awrah' as pudendum, "the external genitals, especially of the female." [Latin pudendum (literally) a thing to be ashamed of].  The awrah (roughly genital area in a male) must be covered. 

"Ali reported the Prophet [Mohammad] saying: 'Women have ten ('awrat). When she gets married, the husband covers one, and when she dies the grave covers the ten." (]   Kanz-el-'Ummal, Vol. 22, Hadith No. 858. See also Ihy'a )

"The woman is 'awrah.'  When she goes outside (the house), the devil welcomes her." ( Ihy'a 'Uloum ed-Din by Ghazali, Dar al-Kotob al-'Elmeyah, Beirut, Vol II, Kitab Adab al-Nikah, p. 65. Reported by Tirmizi as a true and good Hadith.).

Ibn Masud reported the Messenger of Allah as saying: "A woman is an object of concealment for when she goes out the devil presents her in alluring looks before men." (Tirmidhi  928).

"A woman is like a private part. When she goes out the devil casts a glance at her" Al-Hadis, trans. Al-Haj Maulana Fazlul Karim, vol. 2, p. 692, from Mishkat al-Masabih, by Waliuddin Abu Abdullah Mahmud Tabrizi

Hence Muslim men must only cover their genitals to hide their shame and preserve their modesty – Muslim women must hide their entire body!!  This is an appalling attitude to women.


Full body armour
Muslim women must hide their entire body

 Muhammad Attah (Sept 11th terrorist, Muslim) wrote     'at my funeral I do not want impure beings (women, animals)' and also 'Not even around my grave do I want impure beings.  Especially the most impure- pregnant women.'

 WAFA  SULTAN (Syrian/American ex-Muslim)  described how she was taught that her body was filthy!  As a child she avoided passing her father while he was praying because if a dog (the most vile thing) or a woman (next!) passed him he had to wash himself and start again!  ‘ I remember hearing as an eight year old girl that a woman is nothing but shame!  Her marriage will cover up one-tenth of her shame and her grave will cover the rest of it.  Can you imagine, at eight, being consumed by shame just because you are female?’  (Breakout from Islam’s mental prison.   Australian 22/8/07)

Muslim Book 4, Number 1034:   (also 1032)  Abu Huraira reported: The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: A woman, an ass and a dog disrupt the prayer, but something like the back of a saddle guards against that.

Abu-Dawud Book 2, Number 704:   Narrated Abdullah ibn Abbas: Ikrimah reported on the authority of Ibn Abbas, saying: I think the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) said: When one of you prays without a sutrah, a dog, an ass, a pig, a Jew, a Magian, and a woman cut off his prayer, ….

 Only Mohammad’s favourite, his child wife Aisha came close as he prayed-though she disliked to face him! (Bukhari Volume 1, Book 9, Number 490, 493)


Boot Ride
A woman, an ass and a dog disrupt the prayer, but something like the back of a saddle guards against that.

 Women are polluting:

Koran sura 5.6  (repeated in sura 4.43 –re removing pollution before praying)  And if ye are sick on a journey, or one of you cometh from the closet or ye have contact with women and ye find not water, then go to clean high ground and rub your faces and your hands with some of it.

 Many of Mohammad’s comments about women show his loathing (inferior in religion, morals, polluting, populatingWalking Rag hell  eg Bukhari  Vol1, Book 6, No. 301; V2/B18/No. 161; V2/B24/No. 541;  V4/B55/No. 623; V7/B62/No 124..) coupled with his considerable lechery! While young he married and lived under the thumb of the older, wealthy, powerful Khadia (pre-Islam!) who limited him to 1 wife-her!   When Khadia died Mohammad (aged 50+) rapidly gathered many wives(13-28) -including a 9 (possibly 8 using a solar cycle!) year old child.   Concerned that other, younger men, might swipe his females, he covered them up, restricted them to the home, made them talk to other men through a curtain (veil, hijab..), forbade anyone else from marrying them and promised them double the punishment for disobeying!  Many ‘revelations’ conveniently supported his views and practices which all Muslims must follow.  Women/girls are sexual possessions, hidden from other men and this is reinforced and legalized in text and laws that cannot be changed or criticized!  The freedom and power enjoyed by Khadia was taken from women when Mohammad became powerful!  Covering women isn’t a ‘choice,’ it’s a religious dictate that must be blindly obeyed!  Tragically many women ‘obey’ without question and convince themselves this is what they want---their ‘choice.’

Koran 33.30 O Consorts of the Prophet! If any of you were guilty of evident unseemly conduct, the punishment would be doubled to her, and that is easy for Allah……….

(33.33) And stay quietly in your houses, and make not a dazzling display, like that of the former times of ignorance; and establish regular Prayer, and give regular Charity; and obey Allah and His Messenger. And Allah only wishes to remove all abomination from you, ye members of the Family, and to make you pure and spotless.

b) Allah and Mohammad demand that women be covered and veiled: 

Koran   33.59  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.”  (uncovered women of course are cat’s meat—this is a threat!)


Tragically many women ‘obey’ without question and convince themselves this is what they want---their ‘choice.’


Koran  24.31 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 what (must ordinarily) appear thereof; that they should draw their veils over their bosoms and not display their beauty except to their husbands, their fathers, ……….., 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. ..

Koran sura 33.53  O believers do not enter the prophet's houses until leave is given you for a meal…...When you ask for something from his wives ask them from behind a curtain (wall – hijab!)!  That is more decent for your hearts and for theirs.  ..


These Muslimahs were brainwashed to defend the system which permanently enslaves them

 Abu-Dawud Book 32, Number 4092: Narrated Aisha, Ummul Mu'minin: Asma, daughter of AbuBakr, entered upon the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) wearing thin clothes. The Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) turned his attention from her. He 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 pointed to her face and hands.

Abu Dawud Book 32, Number 4100:       Narrated Umm Salamah, Ummul Mu'minin:
I was with the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) while Maymunah was with him. Then Ibn Umm Maktum came. This happened when we were ordered to observe veil (purdah). The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: Observe veil from him. We asked: Apostle of Allah! is he not blind? He can neither see us nor recognise us. The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: Are both of you blind? Do you not see him? ………

Abu-Dawud Book 2, Number 641: Narrated Aisha, Ummul Mu'minin: The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: Allah does not accept the prayer of a woman who has reached puberty unless she wears a veil.

Abu-Dawud Book 32, Number 4104: Narrated Dihyah ibn Khalifah al-Kalbi: The Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) was brought some pieces of fine Egyptian linen and he gave me one and said: Divide it into two; cut one of the pieces into a shirt and give the other to your wife for veil. Then when he turned away, he said: And order your wife to wear a garment below it and not show her figure.

Bukhari Volume 1, Book 8, Number 347: Narrated Um 'Atiya: We were ordered to bring out our menstruating women and veiled women in the religious gatherings and invocation of Muslims on the two 'Id festivals. These menstruating women were to keep away from their Musalla. A woman asked, "O Allah's Apostle ' What about one who does not have a veil?" He said, "Let her share the veil of her companion."

Maliks Muwatta Book 48, Number 48.4.7: Yahya related to me from Malik from Muslim ibn Abi Maryam from Abu Salih that Abu Hurayra said, "Women who are naked even though they are wearing clothes, go astray and make others go astray, and they will not enter the Garden and they will not find its scent, and its scent is experienced from as far as the distance travelled in five hundred years."


Almost naked


Muslim Book 24, Number 5310:
Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) having said this: Two are the types of the denizens of Hell whom I did not see: people having flogs like the tails of the ox with them and they would be beating people, and the women who would be dressed but appear to be naked, who would be inclined (to evil) and make their husbands incline towards it. Their heads would be like the humps of the bukht? camel inclined to one side. They will not enter Paradise and they would not smell its odour..whereas its odour would be smelt from such and such distance.

c) 'Wives' were screened while other sex slaves were not: The tragic story of beautiful, 17 year old, Jewish Safiya and her 'forced' marriage to about 60 year old Mohammad.

Bukhari Vol.5 Book.59 No.512  Narrated Anas:  The Prophet offered the Fajr Prayer near Khaibar when it was still dark and then said, "Allahu-Akbar! Khaibar is destroyed, for whenever we approach  (hostile) nation (to fight), then evil will be the morning for those who have been warned." Then the inhabitants of Khaibar came out running on the roads. The Prophet had their warriors killed, their offspring and woman taken as captives. Safiya was amongst the captives, She first came in the share of Dahya Alkali but later on she belonged to the Prophet . The Prophet made her manumission as her 'Mahr'.    (Also ***Bukhari Vol. 1, Book 8, Number 367  Narrated 'Abdul 'Aziz:)

Bukhari Volume 7, Book 62, Number 89:    Narrated Anas:   The Prophet stayed for three days at a place between Khaibar and Medina, and there he consummated his marriage with Safiyya bint Huyay. ……... The Muslims asked whether Safiyya would be considered as his wife or as a slave girl of what his right hands possessed. Then they said, "If the Prophet screens her from the people, then she is the Prophet's wife but if he does not screen her, then she is a slave girl." So when the Prophet proceeded, he made a place for her (on the camel) behind him and screened her from people.

(Note the Koran, hadiths and laws give Muslim men the right to have sex with slave girls!)

Covering women head to toe is a religious dictate.  It exemplifies Islam’s loathing and men’s ownership and control of women while men wear (and do) what they like---gender apartheid.   It also promotes religious apartheid and Islam’s threatening political presence!   Part 1 showed women as shameful and part 2 looks at women as evil- both underpin wearing a hijab!

Lest We Forget the Battle of Tours

History - Violent Jihad

Australians celebrate and revere Anzac Day on April 25th each year in remembrance of our brave soldiers who fought in two great world wars to secure our freedom. Every Australian identifies with the slogan “lest we forget” and in services held around the country people reflect on the battles and men who died to secure our freedom. Yet across the world in France, there is one remarkable battle which helped form the Europe we know today and allowed the development of civilization based on Judeo Christian principles. This one famous battle has become known as the battle of Tours and effectively stopped the Muslim advance into Europe. After the death of Mohammed in 632AD, Muslim armies exploded out of the Arabian peninsula to conquer much of the Middle East, expanding across north Africa. From there they crossed into Spain in 711AD and eventually controlled much of al-Andalus by 715AD. It was the victory at Tours by Charles Martel that stemmed the tide and eventually the Muslim marauders were expelled from Spain in 1492 when the last outpost at Granada fell to King Ferdinand of Spain.

Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj was born, lived, fought and won battles against religious and social oppression in the 17th century Bharat or India. He was a shining star in the Indian firmament and is renowned as a champion of the downtrodden and depressed masses. He was and continues to be an icon for the classes and masses alike and is seen as a rallying point for peasants oppressed by foreign rulers, Pathans and Moghuls alike. Sexually exploited women found in Shivaji Raje a protector, a benefactor and flocked to his Hindavi Swaraj to find solace and feel liberated under his saffron flag.

Barbary Corsair
Somalian Islamic Pirates & Lessons from History
The dramatic rescue of the American cargo-ship captain Richard Phillips from the hands of Somalian Islamic pirates by the U.S. Navy—killing three pirates, holding him hostage at gun-point, through precision-targeting—warrants a review of the U.S. struggle with piracy and hostage-taking in North Africa, which ended two centuries ago.

Raiding trade-caravans and hostage-taking for extracting ransom in Islam was started by Prophet Muhammad. Having become powerful and secure after his relocation to Medina from Mecca in 622, Muhammad initiated Jihad or holy war in the form of raids of trade-caravans for earning livelihood for his community. In the first successful raid of a Meccan caravan at Nakhla in December 623, his brigands killed one of the attendants, took two of them captive, and acquired the caravan as “sacred” booty. The captives were ransomed to generate further revenue. Muhammad, later on, expanded this mode of Jihad to raiding non-Muslim communities around Arabia—for capturing their homes, properties and livestock, capturing their women and children as slaves often for ransoming and selling, and imposing extortional taxes—which sometimes involved mass-slaughter of the attacked victims.

The First Islamic Terrorist Attack on Australian Soil
On January 1, 1915 two Broken Hill men, both former camel drivers, armed themselves with rifles, an homemade flag bearing Islamic insignia and a large supply of ammunition and launched a surprise attack on the Picnic Train about 3 kilometres outside Broken Hill.

The train carried about 1200 Broken Hill residents to Silverton where a picnic to celebrate the new year was to take place.

The two Muslim men, Gool Mohamed originally a Pashtun tribesman from Afghanistan and Mullah Abdullah from what is known today as Pakistan, decided to wage jihad against Australian infidels after Australia and the Ottoman Empire officially joined the opposite sides in the WWI.

Alhambra - GazelleHow often in conversation with a Muslim, do they quote Spain as the crowning achievement of Islam, where Muslims, Jews and Christians lived in harmony for about 800 years?

And when you mention the killings and massacres, you are told that the Spanish Inquisition was much worse.
This is a misconception, since the Inquisition in Spain was responsible for only between 4,000 and 5,000 lives. [1]

Yet in 1066AD, in a single day, muslims murdered over 4,000 Jews because Vizier Joseph ibn Naghrela had risen to a position greater than them, and of course, this upset the Muslim sensitivities. [2]

Decisive Victory for the West

At this time of year, it is timely to remember one of the greatest victories of the west against the Islamic world. On the 7th October in 1571, Don Juan and the Holy League, led by Admiral Doria, defeated the larger Ottoman fleet in the Battle of Lepanto, saving Europe from the Turks and militant Islam. The Holy League was a coalition of different armies - of the Republic of Venice, the Papacy (under Pope Pius V), Spain (including Naples, Sicily and Sardinia), the Republic of Genoa, the Duchy of Savoy, the Knights Hospitaller and some others.

When Mohamed and his faithful followers moved from Mecca to Medina, they found themselves among three Jewish tribes/clans (BANU-L-NADIR, BANU KAINUKA and BANU KURAIZA)  which settled there some time after their expulsion from their homeland and also living there were  two Arab, pagan tribes.

Mohammed, who at this stage needed more followers, decided to win those tribes over and convert them to his newly invented religion.

Islam was yet not as fully developed as we know it today, and Mohammed was still having his sessions with Allah (the Medina period revelations).
