Wanna know what is the most annoying source of hypocrisy for me? It’s Muslims that find excessive time to type out lengthy emails and posts telling women how to wear the hijab correctly and arguing the merits of whether it is Sunnah or Fardh or Waajib, or culture, or tradition, or Allah knows what else. But ask them to practice with the same ferocity their ability to speak out against men who rape their wives, or men who throw acid in the faces of women that deny them, or men who are irresponsible in the maintenance of their families, their homes, their children, and their numerous other responsibilities to society, and suddenly they become deaf, dumb, and blind because they know that if they speak about such things in front of a man that is impervious to their advice, they will probably get slapped off their feet. At the least, we pick on such issues because it props up our own egos about the little that they practice overtly while completely distracting them from what they lack internally. So instead, they choose the soft targets, they choose the issues that are topical and controversial for all the wrong reasons, and they waste their breath and their time on villifying women about their appearance because it makes them somehow feel more pious, all the while pretending to be sincerely concerned about the state of the Ummah. You know what? If you’re genuinely and sincerely concerned about the state of the Ummah, and the state of the Muslim woman, then get off your high horse and fulfill your duty as a man rather than bickering like a wimp about something that is absolutely irrelevant when compared to the real issues facing the Ummah. Look around you and tell me if the Muslim woman not wearing a piece of cloth is really the gravest concern facing the Ummah right now? You know what else? If men were men, women wouldn’t have a need to display their beauty in the hopes of attracting a suitor, because instead, the duties that they are fulfilling on behalf of the men would not have placed a burden on them that makes them seek an outlet of expression or self-appreciation that is apparently so offensive to the hoardes of pious men out there.
Get real. Muslims are being bludgeoned to death like helpless seals sipping off the foam of the ocean and you’re worrying about whether a woman is exposing her hair or not? Seriously?
