(Bismillah) Assalamualaykum :)
Lemme go straight to the main topic here. GRACE. According to Mr.Google, grace means simple elegance or refinement of movement. Islam teaches their Muslimah to be graceful. Not just by their movement as stated by Mr. Google but also through their appearance.
A lot of professional Muslim women today and those with insufficient Islamic knowledge do not like to discuss about this topic and they don't even believe that covering aurat could prevent harm from inflicting them. Some is even of the opinion that covering the aurat is a form of oppression that the males have enforced on woman. Muslimah were victimized by the rules or commandments of Islam??
In reality, as a servant of Allah SWT and the follower of Rasulullah SAW, we are taught to always come back to Al-Quran and Al-Hadith to obtain assurance about the permissibility of a matter. Regarding this, Allah SWT said:-
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)
Therefore, the main reason for the above ruling is to prevent Muslim women from being molested by wicked men. Attires that display women's beauty or women walking and talking in a seducing manner could arouse a man's sexual desire. Such behavior is an indirect invitation to the male for teasing and molestation.
Let us think about it. When we walk around in the city these days, have you ever not seen a single Muslimah wearing tight-fitting clothes? I as a
woman/lady girl, never ever feel tempted by their appearance. Well, it is clearly normal for me to feel so. *troll face* Nevertheless, have you aver ask a man about their feeling? Are they seduced by them? Are they feeling tempted? And the answer to that is a big fat YES!
Take a look at this video if you're free :)
This ayat clearly says that men's main desire is towards women. The Prophet SAW also said:
ما تركت فتنة أضر على الرجال من النساء
"I did not leave a fitnah after me that could bring more harm to a man except woman" (Narrated by Al-Bukhari, 7/11, Chapter Zikir & Doa)
Ladies, now we are going to talk about fashion. Fashion is not categorized as haram is Islam BUT there are few guidelines to be a fashionista~ *flip tudung*
- Cover whole body except for your face and from the tip of your slender fingers till your wrist. That means that you also need to cover your feet.
- Wear somethin' loose. Absolutely not tight-fitting.
- Wear opaque clothes. Don't wear transparent ones and avoid wearing the translucent ones.
Well, there are only three of 'em. As simple as eating, rite? Talking about simple, take a look at some error of being graceful that I listed here:
ERROR 1: Aurat is ONLY about covering the hair.
ERROR 2: Wears hijab with short sleeve T-Shirt.
ERROR 3: Wears hijab with slitted skirts.
ERROR 4: Wears hijab with tight and transparent blouse that reveals body parts that lures a man.
ERROR 5: Wears very loose hijab that causes the hair to be visible.
ERROR 6: Wears hijab only in the office. Not at home or around the mall.
