~@ THE VEIL @~







The Veil - Dawud Wharnsby Ali

They say, "Oh, poor girl, you're so beautiful you know
It's a shame that you cover up your beauty so."
She just smiles and graciously responds reassuringly,
"This beauty that I have is just one simple part of me.
This body that I have, no stranger has the right to see.
These long clothes, this shawl I wear, ensure my modesty.
Faith is more essential than fashion, wouldn't you agree?"
This hijab, This mark of piety,
Is an act of faith, a symbol, For all the world to see.
A simple cloth, to protect her dignity.
So lift the veil from your heart to see the heart of purity.


They tell her, 
"Girl, don't you know this is the West and you are free?
You don't need to be oppressed, ashamed of your femininity."
She just shakes her head and she speaks so assuredly,
"See the bill-boards and the magazines 
that line the check-out isles,
with their phony painted faces and their air-brushed smiles?
Well their sheer clothes and low cut gowns 
they are really not for me.
You call it freedom, I call it anarchy."
This hijab, This mark of piety,
Is an act of faith, a symbol, For all the world to see.
A simple cloth, to protect her dignity.
So lift the veil from your heart to see the heart of purity.
Lift the veil from your heart and seek the heart of purity.

" Suka sangat tengok wanita cam ni. Bila giliranku pula? (-_-) "


بدأ الأسلام غريبا وسيعود غريبا فطبى للغربأ

maksudnya: "Islam itu bermula dengan ganjil (dari pandangan orang ramai), dan ia akan kambali dipandang ganjil (akhir zaman), maka beruntunglah orang2 yg ganjil( pada waktu itu)."


**Ganjil - berpurdah (konteks tajuk entri ni)

~mengingatkan lebih baik dari membiarkan.malah jika dilakukan dengan istiqomah lebih baik dari tidak berbuat apa2~

**seindah hiasan adalah wanita solehah..sesiapa pun boleh jadi tapi hanya yg mampu melaksanakan suruhanNYA dgn selengkapnya yg dapat ganjarannya...

Islam itu ia bermula dengan dagang dan akan kembali menjadi dagang.
