Islam Doesn't Allow Women To Become TV Host, Guest & Newscaster

http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_vW1GG83Zr1U/Sb1w6z4YIwI/AAAAAAAACG8/PLks8Al1L24/s320/Sheikh-Bin-Baz.jpgMany men in some families allow their wives, daughters and sisters to appear in front of men who are not their mahrams, such as their friends and colleagues, and let them sit with them and talk to them as if they were their mahrams. If we advise them they say that this is their custom and the custom of their forefathers, and they claim that their hearts are clean. Some of them are proud and arrogant although they understand the ruling, and others are ignorant of the ruling. What is your advice to them?.

Praise be to Allaah.

What every Muslim must do is not to rely on customs; rather he should refer the matter to the pure sharee’ah. Whatever Islam approves of is permissible and whatever it does not approve of, he should not do it. The fact that people are accustomed to a thing does not constitute evidence that it is permissible. All the customs that people may have in their cities or tribes should be referred to the Book of Allaah and the Sunnah of His Messenger (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him). Whatever Allaah and His Messenger have permitted is permissible, and whatever Allaah has forbidden must be given up, even if it is the people’s custom. If the people are accustomed to being careless concerning the matter of khulwah (being alone with a non-mahram member of the opposite sex) or of women uncovering their faces in front of non-mahrams, these are false customs which must be given up. Similarly if people are accustomed to adultery, homosexuality and drinking alcohol, they must give up these things. What is customary does not count as proof, rather sharee’ah comes above all things, so the one whom Allaah has guided to Islam has to keep away from that which Allaah has forbidden of alcohol, adultery, theft, disobedience towards parents, severing the ties of kinship and everything that Allaah has forbidden, and he must adhere to that which Allaah has enjoined. 

Similarly the family must respect the command of Allaah and His Messenger, and keep away from that which Allaah and His Messenger have forbidden. If it is their custom for their women folk to appear in front of non-mahrams or to be alone with a non-mahram, they must give up those practices. 

Islam Doesn't Allow Women To Become TV Host/Guest - 1 (AAJ TV 25 Jan 2011)

A woman should not uncover her face or anything else in front of her cousin, her sister’s husband, or her husband’s brothers or uncles (paternal or maternal). Rather she must observe hijab and cover her face and head and entire body in front of any non-mahram. With regard to speaking, there is nothing wrong with that, such as returning the greeting of salaam or initiating it, so long as she observes hijab and avoids being alone with any non-mahram, because Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): 

Islam Doesn't Allow Women To Become TV Host/Guest - 2 (AAJ TV 25 Jan 2011)

“And when you ask (his wives) for anything you want, ask them from behind a screen, that is purer for your hearts and for their hearts” [al-Ahzaab 33:53] 

Islam Doesn't Allow Women To Become TV Host/Guest - 3 (AAJ TV 25 Jan 2011)

“O wives of the Prophet! You are not like any other women. If you keep your duty (to Allaah), then be not soft in speech, lest he in whose heart is a disease (of hypocrisy, or evil desire for adultery) should be moved with desire, but speak in an honourable manner” [al-Ahzaab 33:32] 

Maulana Fazlur Rehman Curses Jang Group, GEO TV & Ansar Abbasi

Allaah forbade the wives of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) to be soft in speech, i.e., to speak in a soft and alluring tone that might give hope to the one in whose heart is a disease, i.e., the disease of desire and make him think that she is easy and has no objections. Rather she should speak in a moderate tone that is neither too harsh nor too soft. And Allaah tells us that hijab is purer for the hearts of everyone. 
And Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): 

Real Face of Baysharam Meher Bokhari (Samaa TV) & Asma Shirazi (Samaa TV)

“O Prophet! Tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to draw their cloaks (veils) all over their bodies (i.e. screen themselves completely except the eyes or one eye to see the way). That will be better, that they should be known (as free respectable women) so as not to be annoyed. And Allaah is Ever Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful” [al-Ahzaab 33:59] 

Real Face of Baysharam Meher Bokhari (Samaa TV)

The jilbab (cloak, veil) is a garment which covers the head and body; the woman puts it over her head and covers her body with it, wearing it over her clothes. And Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): 

“And tell the believing women to lower their gaze (from looking at forbidden things), and protect their private parts (from illegal sexual acts) and not to show off their adornment except only that which is apparent (like both eyes for necessity to see the way, or outer palms of hands or one eye or dress like veil, gloves, headcover, apron), and to draw their veils all over Juyoobihinna (i.e. their bodies, faces, necks and bosoms) and not to reveal their adornment except to their husbands, or their fathers, or their husband’s fathers, or their sons, or their husband’s sons, or their brothers or their brother’s sons, or their sister’s sons, or their (Muslim) women (i.e. their sisters in Islam), or the (female) slaves whom their right hands possess, or old male servants who lack vigour, or small children who have no sense of feminine sex…” [al-Noor 24:31] 

Samaa TV & Meher Bokhari Murdered Salman Taseer - Part 1

With regard to those mentioned in this verse, there is nothing wrong with a woman showing her adornment to them. So all Muslim women must fear Allaah and avoid that which Allaah has forbidden to them of showing their adornment to anyone other than those to whom Allaah has permitted them to show it.

عورت کا مردوں کے سامنے جانا
بعض خاندانوں میں بہت سے مرد اپنی بیوی یا بیٹی یا پھر اپنی بہن کو غیرمحرم مردوں مثلا دوست واحباب اوررشتہ داروں کے سامنے جانے اوران کے ساتھ بیٹھنے اوران سے بات چیت کی اجازت دیتےہیں جیسے کہ وہ ان کے محرم ہوں ، جب ہم انہیں نصیحت کرتے اورسمجھاتے ہیں کہ یہ صحیح نہیں تو وہ جواب ميں کہتے ہیں کہ یہ ان کی اوران کےخاندان اورآباء واجداد کی عادت میں شامل ہے ، اوران کا یہ بھی گمان ہے یہ ان کے دل صاف ہوتے ہیں ۔
کچھ تو ان لوگوں میں معاند ہيں اورکچھ متکبر ہیں حالانکہ وہ اس کے حکم کا بھی علم رکھتے ہیں اورکچھ لوگ اس کے حکم سے جاہل ہیں ، توآپ ایسے لوگوں کو کیا نصیحت کرتے ہیں ؟


ہرمسلمان شخص پر واجب اورضروری ہے کہ وہ عادات اوررسم ورواج پر اعتماد نہ کرے بلکہ اسے شریعت مطہرہ پر پیش کرے جو شریعت مطہرہ کے موافق ہو اس پر عمل کرے اورجو شریعت اسلامیہ کے مخالف ہو اس پر عمل نہیں کرنا چاہیے ، لوگوں کا کسی چيز کی عادت بنالینا اس کے حلال ہونے کی دلیل نہیں ۔

Samaa TV & Meher Bokhari Murdered Salman Taseer - Part 2

بلکہ لوگوں نے جتنی بھی اپنے خاندانوں ، قبیلوں ، ملکوں اورمعاشروں میں عادات اوررسم ورواج بنا رکھے ہیں انہیں کتاب اللہ اورسنت رسول صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم پر پیش کرنا واجب ہے ، جوکچھ اللہ تعالی اوراس کے رسول صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم نے مباح کیا ہو وہ مباح ہے اورجس سے اللہ تعالی اوراس کے رسول صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم نے منع فرمایا ہے اس پرعمل کرنا جائز نہيں اوراس کا ترک کرنا اورچھوڑنا واجب ہے چاہے وہ لوگوں کی عادت میں ہی کیوں نہ شامل ہو ۔

اورجب لوگوں نے کسی اجنبی عورت سے خلوت یا غیر محرم سے پردہ نہ کرنے کی عادت بنا لی ہو اوراس میں تساہل سے کام لیں توان کی یہ عادت باطل ہے اسے ترک کرنا واجب ہوگا ، اوراسی طرح اگر کچھ لوگ زنا یا پھر لواطت یا شراب نوشی اورنشہ کرنے کی عادت بنالیں تو ان پر بھی اسے ترک کرنا واجب ہے ، اورعادت ہونا ان کےلیے حجت اوردلیل نہیں بن سکتی ۔

بلکہ شریعت مطہرہ تو سب سے اوپر ہے اس لیے جسے اللہ تعالی نے اسلام کی ھدایت نصیب فرمائي ہے اسے اللہ تعالی کے حرام کردہ کاموں شراب نوشی ، زنا ، چوری و ڈاکہ ، اورقطع تعلقی اورقطع رحمی اورنافرمانی وغیرہ اورباقی جوبھی اللہ تعالی نے حرام کیا ہے سے اجتناب کرنا اوردور رہنا چاہیے ، اوراسے چاہیے کہ اللہ تعالی کے واجبات کا التزام کرے ۔

اوراسی طرح خاندان والوں پر بھی واجب ہے کہ وہ اللہ تعالی اوراس کے رسول صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم کے احکامات کا احترام کریں اوراللہ تعالی اوراس کے رسول صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم کے حرام کردہ سے دوررہیں اوراجتناب کریں ، اورجب ان کی عورتوں کی یہ عادت ہوکہ وہ غیرمحرموں سے پردہ نہیں کرتیں یا پھر ان سے خلوت کرتی ہيں توانہيں یہ عادت ترک کرنی چاہیے بلکہ ان پر اسے چھوڑنا واجب ہے ۔

کیونکہ عورت کے لیےجائز نہيں کہ وہ اپنے چچا زاد ، خالہ زاد ، پھوپھی زاد ، یا بہنوئی یا پھر اپنے دیوروں ، اوراپنے خاوند کے چچا اورماموں کے سامنے ننگے منہ پھرے اورپردہ نہ کرے ، بلکہ اس پر واجب ہے کہ وہ ان سب سے پردہ کرے اوراپنے سر چہرہ اورباقی بدن وغیرہ کوچھپائے کیونکہ یہ اس کے غیرمحرم ہيں ۔

اوررہا مسئلہ کلام یعنی سلام کے جواب اورسلام کرنا وغیرہ کا تو پردہ کے اندر رہتے ہوئے اورخلوت کے بغیر اس میں کوئي حرج نہیں ، کیونکہ اللہ تعالی کا فرمان ہے :

{ اورجب تم نبی ( صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم ) کی بیویوں سے کوئي چيز طلب کرو تو پردے کے پیچھے سے طلب کرو ، تمہارے اوران کےدلوں کے لیے کامل پاکيزگی یہی ہے } الاحزاب ( 53 ) ۔

اورایک دوسرے مقام پر کچھ اس طرح فرمایا:

{ اے نبی ( صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم ) کی بیویو ! تم عام عورتوں کی طرح نہيں ہو ، اگر تم پرہیز گاری اختیار کرو تو نرم لہجے سے بات نہ کرو کہ جس کے دل میں روگ ہو وہ کوئي برا خیال کرے ، اورہاں قاعدے کے مطابق کلام کرو } الاحزاب ( 32 ) ۔

تواللہ تعالی نے اپنے اس فرمان میں نبی صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم کی ازواج مطہرات کونرم لہجہ اختیار کرنے سے منع فرمایا ہے کہ وہ اپنی بات میں نرمی اختیار نہ کریں تا کہ دل میں بیماری رکھنے والا یا پھر جس کے دل میں شھوت کی بیماری ہے وہ یہ خیال کرنے لگے کہ کمزور ہے اوراسے کوئي مانع نہیں ۔

بلکہ اسے درمیانے لہجہ میں بات کرنی چاہیے جس میں نہ تونرمی ہواورنہ ہی درشتی اورسختی ہو اوراللہ تعالی نے یہ بھی بیان کیا کہ پردہ کرنا سب کے دلوں کی پاکیزگي ہے اوربہتر ہے ۔

اورایک مقام پر اللہ تعالی نے فرمایا ہے :

{ اے نبی ( صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم ) اپنی بیویوں اورصاحبزادیوں سے اورمسلمانوں کی عورتوں سے کہہ دو کہ وہ اپنے اوپر اپنی چادریں لٹکا لیا کریں ، اس سے بہت جلد ان کی شناخت ہوجایا کرے گی پھر وہ ستائي نہ جائيں گی ، اور اللہ تعالی بخشنے والا مہربان ہے } الاحزاب ( 59 ) ۔

جلباب ایسے کپڑے کوکہا جاتا ہے جوسر پررکھا جائے جس سے سارا بدت چھپ جائے اورعورت اسے اپنے سر پر رکھ کر لباس کے اوپرسے اپنے سارے جسم کو چھپاتی ہے ۔

اورایک مقام پر اللہ تعالی کا فرمان کچھ اس طرح ہے :

{ اورمسلمان عورتوں سے کہہ دیجئے کہ وہ اپنی نگاہیں نیچی رکھا کریں اوراپنی شرمگاہوں کی حفاظت کریں اوراپنی عصمت میں فرق نہ آنے دیں ، اوراپنی زینت کوظاہر نہ کریں سوائے اس کےجوظاہر ہے ، اوراپنے گریبانوں پر اپنی اوڑھنیاں ڈالے رکھیں ، اوراپنی زیب وآرائش کوکسی کے سامنے ظاہر نہ کریں سوائے اپنے خاوندوں کے یا اپنے والد کے یا اپنے سسر کے یا اپنے لڑکوں کے یا اپنے خاوند کے لڑکوں کے یا اپنے بھائیوں کے یا اپنے بھتیجوں کے یا اپنے بھانجوں کے یا اپنے میل جول کی عورتوں کے یا غلاموں کے یا ایسے نوکر چاکرمردوں سے جوشہوت والے نہ ہوں ، یاایسے بچوں کے جو عورتوں کے پردے کی باتوں سے مطلع نہيں ۔۔۔ } النور ( 31 )۔

تواس آیت میں مذکور اشخاص کے علاوہ کسی اورکے سامنے وہ اپنی زينت کوظاہر نہیں کرسکتی ۔

توسب مسلمان عورتوں پر واجب اورضروری ہے کہ وہ اللہ تعالی کا تقوی اختیار کریں اوراللہ تعالی نے جوان کی زينت کے ظاہر کرنے سے ان پر حرمت کی ہے اس کے ظاہر کرنے سے بچیں اورانہيں غیرمحرموں کے سامنے زينت کے ساتھ سامنے نہيں آنا چاہیے ۔.

ظهور المرأة أمام الرجال
كثير من الرجال في بعض الأسر يسمح لزوجته أو ابنته أو أخته بالظهور أمام الرجال غير المحارم كجماعته وأصدقائه وزملائه والجلوس معهم والتحدث إليهم كما لو كانوا محرما لها ، وإذا نصحناهم قالوا إن هذه عاداتهم وعادات آبائهم ، كما أنهم يزعمون أن قلوبهم نظيفة ، ومنهم المكابر والمعاند وهو يفهم الحكم ، ومنهم من يجهله فما نصيحتكم لهم ؟.

الحمد لله

الواجب على كل مسلم أن لا يعتمد على العادات بل يجب عرضها على الشرع المطهر فما أقره منها جاز فعله وما لا فلا ، وليس اعتياد الناس للشيء دليلا على حله فجميع العادات التي اعتادها الناس في بلادهم أو في قبائلهم يجب عرضها على كتاب الله وسنة رسوله عليه الصلاة والسلام فما أباح الله ورسوله فهو مباح ، وما نهى الله عنه وجب تركه وإن كان عادة للناس ، فإذا اعتاد الناس التساهل بالخلوة بالأجنبية أو بكشف وجهها لغير محارمها فهذه عادات باطلة يجب أن تترك كما لو اعتاد الناس الزنا أو اللواط أو شرب المسكر فإن الواجب عليهم تركها وليست العادة حجة لهم في ذلك ، بل الشرع فوق الجميع فعلى من هداه الله للإسلام أن يبتعد عما حرم الله عليه من خمر وزنا وسرقة وعقوق وقطيعة الرحم وسائر ما حرم الله عز وجل ، وأن يلتزم بما أوجب الله عليه.

وهكذا الأسرة يجب عليها أن تحترم أمر الله ورسوله وأن تبتعد عما حرم الله ورسوله فإذا كان من عاداتهم كشف نسائهم لغير المحارم أو الخلوة بغير المحارم وجب عليهم ترك ذلك.

فليس للمرأة أن تكشف وجهها أو غيره لابن عمها ولا لزوج أختها ولا لإخوان زوجها ولا لأعمامه ولا لأخواله ، بل يجب عليها الاحتجاب وستر وجهها ورأسها وجميع بدنها عن غير محارمها ، أما الكلام فلا بأس به كرد السلام والبداءة به مع الحجاب والبعد عن الخلوة لقول الله سبحانه : ( وَإِذَا سَأَلْتُمُوهُنَّ مَتَاعًا فَاسْأَلُوهُنَّ مِنْ وَرَاءِ حِجَابٍ ذَلِكُمْ أَطْهَرُ لِقُلُوبِكُمْ وَقُلُوبِهِنَّ ) الأحزاب / 53 وقوله عز وجل : ( يَا نِسَاءَ النَّبِيِّ لَسْتُنَّ كَأَحَدٍ مِنَ النِّسَاءِ إِنِ اتَّقَيْتُنَّ فَلا تَخْضَعْنَ بِالْقَوْلِ فَيَطْمَعَ الَّذِي فِي قَلْبِهِ مَرَضٌ وَقُلْنَ قَوْلا مَعْرُوفًا ) الأحزاب / 32 ، فنهى الله سبحانه وتعالى نساء النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم أن يخضعن بالقول وهو تليينه وتكسيره حتى يطمع من كان في قلبه مرض أي مرض الشهوة ويظن أنها مواتية ولا مانع عندها ، بل تقول قولا وسطا ليس فيه عنف ولا خضوع ، وأخبر سبحانه أن الحجاب أطهر لقلوب الجميع

وقال تعالى : ( يَا أَيُّهَا النَّبِيُّ قُلْ لأَزْوَاجِكَ وَبَنَاتِكَ وَنِسَاءِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ يُدْنِينَ عَلَيْهِنَّ مِنْ جَلابِيبِهِنَّ ذَلِكَ أَدْنَى أَنْ يُعْرَفْنَ فَلا يُؤْذَيْنَ وَكَانَ اللَّهُ غَفُورًا رَحِيمًا ) الأحزاب / 59 ، والجلباب ثوب يطرح على الرأس والبدن تطرحه المرأة على رأسها وتغطي به بدنها فوق ثيابها ، وقال عز وجل : ( وَقُلْ لِلْمُؤْمِنَاتِ يَغْضُضْنَ مِنْ أَبْصَارِهِنَّ وَيَحْفَظْنَ فُرُوجَهُنَّ وَلا يُبْدِينَ زِينَتَهُنَّ إِلا مَا ظَهَرَ مِنْهَا وَلْيَضْرِبْنَ بِخُمُرِهِنَّ عَلَى جُيُوبِهِنَّ وَلا يُبْدِينَ زِينَتَهُنَّ إِلا لِبُعُولَتِهِنَّ أَوْ آبَائِهِنَّ أَوْ آبَاءِ بُعُولَتِهِنَّ أَوْ أَبْنَائِهِنَّ أَوْ أَبْنَاءِ بُعُولَتِهِنَّ ...الآية ) النور / 31 ، فهؤلاء المذكورون في الآية لا حرج في إبداء المرأة زينتها لهم .

والواجب على جميع النساء المسلمات تقوى الله سبحانه وتعالى ، والحذر مما حرم الله عليهن من إبداء الزينة لغير من أباح الله إبداءها له .

English Translation:

Tell the believing men to lower their gaze and be modest. That is purer for them. Lo! Allah is aware of what they do. And tell the believing women to lower their gaze and be modest, and to display of their adornment only that which is apparent, and to draw their veils over their bosoms, and not to reveal their adornment save to their own husbands or fathers or husbands' fathers, or their sons or their husbands' sons, or their brothers or their brothers' sons or sisters' sons, or their women, or their slaves, or male attendants who lack vigour, or children who know naught of women's nakedness. And let them not stamp their feet so as to reveal what they hide of their adornment. And turn unto Allah together, O believers, in order that ye may succeed. [AL-NOOR (THE LIGHT) - Chapter 24 - Verse 30 and 31]

Interpretation as per Tafseer Ibn-e-Kaseer and Qurtubi [they had understood Islam far better then this present Calamity i.e. Ansar Abbasi]

- The Hijaab- Not using perfume- A light walk, so that the (bing) noise of her shoes is not heard,

- And if she walks with her sister and there are some men, she does not speak with her companion (i.e. her sister), and this does not mean that the woman's voice is 'awrah, but the men hearing the voice of the woman, it is possible that it could lead to fitnah.

- That she should ask for permission from her husband if she is married

- If she is going a distance which is considered traveling, she doesn't exit except with a mahram

- Not mixing with men

- To be endowed with shyness

- To lower her gaze

- Not taking off her clothing in other than her house, if she means with that displaying (herself), verily it comes on the Prophet (sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam) that he said, "any woman who takes off her clothes in other than her husband's house, verily revealed (unveiled) the sutrah between her and her Lord"

يَا أَيُّهَا النَّبِيُّ قُل لِّأَزْوَاجِكَ وَبَنَاتِكَ وَنِسَاء الْمُؤْمِنِينَ يُدْنِينَ عَلَيْهِنَّ مِن جَلَابِيبِهِنَّ ذَلِكَ أَدْنَى أَن يُعْرَفْنَ فَلَا يُؤْذَيْنَ وَكَانَ اللَّهُ غَفُورًا رَّحِيمًا


Ya ayyuha alnnabiyyu qul liazwajika wabanatika wanisai almumineena yudneena AAalayhinna min jalabeebihinna thalika adna an yuAArafna fala yuthayna wakana Allahu ghafooran raheeman

O Prophet! Tell thy wives and thy daughters and the women of the believers to draw their cloaks close round them (when they go abroad). That will be better, so that they may be recognised and not annoyed. Allah is ever Forgiving, Merciful. [AL-AHZAB (THE CLANS, THE COALITION,THE COMBINED FORCES) - Chapter 33 - Verse 59]

From the Hadith.....

Narrated Safiya bint Shaiba (Radhiallaahu Ánha) "Aa'ishah (Radhiallaahu Ánha) used to say: "When (the Verse): "They should draw their veils over their necks and bosoms," was revealed, (the ladies) cut their waist sheets at the edges and covered their faces with the cut pieces. [Sahih Al-Bukhari Volume 6, Book 60, Hadith # 282]

Narrated 'Aa'ishah (Radhiallaahu Ánha) Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) used to offer the Fajr prayer and some believing women covered with their veiling sheets used to attend the Fajr prayer with him and then they would return to their homes unrecognized . Shaikh Ibn Uthaimin in tafseer of this hadeeth explains "This hadeeth makes it clear that the Islamic dress is concealing of the entire body as explained in this hadeeth. Only with the complete cover including the face and hands can a woman not be recognized. This was the understanding and practice of the SAHÂBAH and they were the best of group, the noblest in the sight of Allaah (swt) with the most complete Eemaan and noblest of characters. so if the practice of the women of the sahabah was to wear the complete veil then how can we deviate from their path? [Sahih Al-Bukhari Volume 1, Book 8, Hadith # 368]

Narrated 'Aa'ishah (Radhiallaahu Ánha): The wives of Rasulullaah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) used to go to Al-Manasi, a vast open place (near Baqia at Medina) to answer the call of nature at night. 'Umar used to say to the Prophet "Let your wives be veiled," but Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) did not do so. One night Sauda bint Zam'a the wife of the Prophet went out at 'Isha' time and she was a tall lady. 'Umar addressed her and said, "I have recognized you, O Sauda." He said so, as he desired eagerly that the verses of Al-Hijab (the observing of veils by the Muslim women) may be revealed. So Allaah revealed the verses of "Al-Hijab" (A complete body cover excluding the eyes). [Sahih Al-Bukhari Volume 1, Book 4, Hadith # 148]

"Rasulullaah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) said “All of a woman is ‘awrah.” (Shaikh Muhammed Salih Al-Munajjid quotes this hadeeth narrated by Tirmidhi with a sahih isnaad and says this is a direct hadeeth from Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam ) and has made it clear that a woman must cover everything including the face and hands!) [Tirmidhi]

Narrated Thabit ibn Qays (Radhiallaahu Ánhu): A woman called Umm Khallad came to the Prophet (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) while she was veiled. She was searching for her son who had been killed (in the battle) Some of the Companions of the Prophet (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) said to her: You have come here asking for your son while veiling your face? She said: If I am afflicted with the loss of my son, I shall not suffer the loss of my modesty. Rasulullaah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) said: You will get the reward of two martyrs for your son. She asked: Why is that so, oh Prophet of Allaah? He replied: Because the people of the Book have killed him. [Abu Dawood Book 14, Hadith # 2482]

Narrated Umm Salamah, Ummul Mu'minin (Radhiallaahu Ánha): When the verse "That they should cast their outer garments over their persons" was revealed, the women of Ansar came out as if they had crows over their heads by wearing outer garments. [Abu Dawood Book 32, Hadith # 4090]

Narrated Aa'ishah, Ummul Mu'minin (Radhiallaahu Ánha) "May Allah have mercy on the early immigrant women. When the verse "That they should draw their veils over their bosoms" was revealed, they tore their thick outer garments and made veils from them. Ibn Hajar Al-Asqalanee, who is known as Ameer Al-Mu'mineen in the field of Hadeeth, said that the phrase, "covered themselves", in the above Hadeeth means that they "covered their faces". [Abu Dawood Book 32, Hadith # 4091/Fath Al-Bari].

Yahya related to me from Malik from Hisham ibn Urwa that Fatima bint al-Mundhir (Radhiallaahu Ánha) said, "We used to veil our faces when we were in Ihram in the company of Asma bint Abi Bakr As-Siddiq (Radhiallaahu Ánha). "This again proves that not only the wives of Rasulullaah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) wore the Niqaab and that even though in Ihram women are not supposed to wear Niqaab but if men are there they still have to cover the face. [Imaam Malik's MUWATTA Book 20 Hadith # 20.5.16]

Narrated Aa'ishah, Ummul Mu'minin: (Radhiallaahu Ánha) who said, "The riders would pass us while we were with the Messenger of Allaah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam). When they got close to us, we would draw our outer cloak from our heads over our faces. When they passed by, we would uncover our faces. Recorded by Ahmad, Abu Dawood and Ibn Majah, Narrated 'Aa'ishah. [In his work Jilbab al-Marah al-Muslimah, al-Albani states (p. 108) that it is hasan due to corroborating evidence. Also, in a narration from Asma {who was not the wife of Rasulullaah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam)}, Asma also covered her face at all times in front of men.] Shaikh Ibn Uthaymeen in his tafseer of this hadeeth explains "This hadeeth indicates the compulsion of the concealing of the faces as an order of Sharee'ah, because during the Ihram it is "wajib" (compulsory) NOT to wear the Niqaab. So if it was only mustahab (recommended) to cover the face then Aa'ishah and Asma (Radhiallaahu Ánha) would have taken the wajib over the mustahab. It is well known by the Ulama that a wajib can only be left because of something that is also wajib or fardh. So Aa'ishah and Asma (Radhiallaahu Ánha) covering the face even in Ihram in the presence of strange (ghair Mahraam) men shows that they understood this to be an act that was wajib or fardh or they would not have covered the face in Ihraam." [Abu Dawood Book 10, Hadith # 1829]

Narrated 'Ikrima (Radhiallaahu Ánhu) narrates "Rifa'a divorced his wife whereupon 'Abdur Rahman bin Az-Zubair Al-Qurazi married her. 'Aa'ishah said that the lady (came), wearing a green veil." It is a very long hadeeth but the point is the women of Sahaba wore the full veil. [Sahih Al-Bukhari Volume 7, Book 72, Hadith # 715]

Narrated Um 'Atiya (Radhiallaahu Ánha) We were ordered (by Rasulullaah '(Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) to bring out our menstruating women and veiled women in the religious gatherings and invocation of Muslims on the two 'Eid festivals. These menstruating women were to keep away from their Musalla. A woman asked, "O Allaah's Apostle ' What about one who does not have a veil (the veil is the complete cover with only one eye or two eyes showing)?" He said, "Let her share the veil of her companion." Shaikh Ibn Uthaymeen in tafseer of this hadeeth explained "This hadeeth proves that the general norm amongst the women of the Sahaba (Radhiallaahu Ánhuma) was that no woman would go out of her home without a cloak, fully concealed and if she did not posses a veil, then it was not possible for her to go out. it was for this reason that when Rasulullaah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) ordered them to go to the Place for Eid Salah, they mentioned this hindrance. As a result Rasulullaah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) said that someone should lend her a veil, but did not say they could go out without it. If Rasulullaah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) did not allow women to go to a place like the Eid Salah, which has been ordered by Sharee'ah for women and men alike, then how can people let women to out to market places and shopping centers without where there is open intermingling of the sexes, without a veil. [Sahih Al-Bukhari Volume 1, Book 8, Hadith # 347/by Shaikh Ibn Uthaymeen in the book "Hijaab" page # 11]

In the end of this very long hadeeth it quotes Anas (Radhiallaahu Ánho) relates from Rasulullaah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) "and if one of the women of Paradise looked at the earth, she would fill the whole space between them (the earth and the heaven) with light, and would fill whatever is in between them, with perfume, and the veil of her face is better than the whole world and whatever is in it." This show that even the women of Jannah have veils and the word veil is what covers the face (niqaab). [Sahih Al-Bukhari Volume 8, Book 76, Hadith # 572]

Aa'ishah (Radhiallaahu Ánha) narrates that on one occasion a female Muslim wanted to give a letter to the Holy Prophet (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam), the letter was delivered to the Holy Prophet (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) from behind a curtain. [Abu Dawood Book 33, Hadith # 4154, Agreed upon by Nasai]

The fake story is not an isolated incident. Political and security observers believe a concerted effort is once again being made to encourage and promote a typical extremist mindset. Some analysts-cum-anchors have re-emerged from quasi-oblivion. Many journalists and analysts are briefed and encouraged to take an aggressively anti-West, especially anti-US, stance. Experts, who ‘preach’ extremism in disguise, are encouraged to participate in talk shows. “When such a mindset is promoted from the top echelons of power, its intensity is bound to increase when it spreads down the ranks,” said senior security analyst and writer Zahid Hussain. “They have not learnt from their past mistakes,” Zahid said, adding, “It is because of our flawed policies, especially of the 1980s, that we are still suffering.”“The most ironic thing is that the right wing leaning of our establishment is again apparent and in fact the patronisation of such forces has once again started,” Zahid said. Many analysts point to the shortsighted policies of our successive governments, especially true for our military rulers, who have led us to the disastrous situation of today. Unfortunately, even after suffering so much, especially in the last few years, there is still no realisation that using people in the name of religion will backfire once again. “It is not a water tap or an electric switch that you can turn on and off whenever you want. Once put in motion, it acquires its own momentum and is very difficult to control,” a former security official said. However, senior analyst and Pakistan’s former ambassador to the US and UK, Maliha Lodhi, believe that there is a realisation. “There is acknowledgement in private about mistakes made in the past. But it is not translating into a long term strategic plan,” Lodhi said. Just two years back, the Army was successful in wresting dangerous advance to the capital Islamabad by militants from Swat. This was done in part because of widespread public support it gained due to the extremists’ actions but also due to help by the progressive segment in the media. However, in the process, the Army marginalised the right wing. It is no secret that there were those in the media and clergy who openly opposed the Army’s campaign against the militants in Swat and tried their best to put the armed forces’ objectives and intention in doubt. Oscar Wilde probably put it best: “Patriotism is the virtue of the vicious.” In Pakistan, terms like ‘patriotism’ and ‘national interests’ are being used and abused by successive governments and the establishment like nowhere else.

Many journalists and analysts are briefed and encouraged to take an aggressively anti-West, especially anti-US", stance" but Mr. Azhar completely forget the Role of GEO TV, Jang Group and specifically Ansar Abbasi, Kamran Khan, Hamid Mir and that Buffoon Dr. Aamir Liaquat Hussain (his tongue caused Murder through GEO TV) in this regard, because Mr. Azhar Abbas is an Executive in GEO TV Network. So let us remind GEO TV/JANG Group's role in promoting Extremism.

Noted Blogger "Cafe Pyala" has observed,


Oh wow. We've all become so used to the hyperbole of the Western and local language English press aroundPakistan Fashion Weeks, that it is sometimes easy to forget how a significant section of society in Pakistan views them. And who better to represent that view than our intrepid Khalifa-ul-Waqt, Ansar Abbasi, who can and will hold forth on anything.

The guardian of Pakistan's values: Ansar Abbasi

Below is a translation of his Urdu op-ed piece published in today'sJang (thanks to @tazeen for drawing my attention to it). It is worth a read, not only because it provides a window to the mindset of Abbasi and possibly many, many others. But also because it draws attention, once again, to the linguistic divide that separates the English reading public and non-English reading public, a divide that is not only tolerated but pandered to. (It is extremely unlikely you would ever read anything like this article in the Jang group's English paper The News or any other English-language paper for that matter.) This article serves to remind you, if anything, that all those post-modernist assumptions about progress in how the role of women in society is discussed, are merely hollow assumptions. Or at least that all those debates have passed Abbasi by without disturbing even a hair in his beard.

I have also yet to understand the mindset of the Jang Group, which launches Amn Ki Asha with great fanfare on the one hand, and has no qualms on the other in making petty-minded jabs about Gandhi and India on Geo on the other (see their coverage of US President Obama's visit to Gandhi's samadi). It will willingly tone down the anti-West moral brigade in The News or on Geo, but allow them free rein in Jang. It will make Geo a media partner of the Fashion Week and provide it wide publicity and, at the same time, run such incendiary pieces about it in its publications (and make no mistake, this article is a call to disruptive action)... Do they really think this is what is meant by 'letting a thousand flowers bloom'?

In any case, here's the article in translation (and here I thought I'd leave the Fashion Week alone):

If Modesty Does Not Remain…
By Ansar Abbasi

"The racket of spreading obscenity and immodesty through fashion shows and catwalks that is fast gaining strength in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan in the name of “enlightened thought”, if immediate action is not taken to stop it, this fire of obscenity will soon engulf civilized households as well. We too will soon cross the extremes of uncivilized behavior and ignorance which have led to the destruction of moral values in Western societies, and where animalistic values have reached such heights that children often do not know their father’s name. Men and women prefer to live together without marriage, whereas the trend of men marrying men and women marrying women is gaining ground. Obscenity and vulgarity have lost their meaning altogether in these societies and have become part of their rituals and tradition which now have legal and moral sanction. For such uncivilized behaviour and ignorance to exist in an un-Islamic and heathen society is not surprising. But for such sort of trends to be nurtured in an Islamic society and in a country founded in the name of Islam is indeed worthy of giving pause for thought.
Hazrat Mohammad (PBUH) decreed that each religion has its own defining value and Islam’s defining value is modesty. In Surah-e-Nur and Surah-e-Ahzab, Allah instructs believers to guard their gaze and their reputations, while women believers have been told in clear terms what their dress code should be and in what state of dress they should leave their homes. In Surah-e-Ahzab, the lack of purdah has been likened to the time of Jahiliyya [ignorance] when women used to dress up and make up to go outside their homes. But it is the height of sadness, that despite Allah’s and his Prophet (PBUH)’s clear directions regarding modesty and the lack of purdah, in Karachi, the largest city of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, the first ten days of the sacred month of Zilhaj were chosen to celebrate a fashion week.
Much like the month of Ramzan is known as springtime for good deeds, so are the first ten days of Zilhaj also very important, compared to normal days, in accruing the blessings of piety. But we chose these days to spread obscenity and vulgarity in the name of fashion. This transformation of a time specially designated for the worship of Allah and doing good deeds, into a Fashion Week in the Islamic homeland of Pakistan, invited action neither from any government organization nor from any other responsible person. And that too, a Fashion Week that seemed like a competition about shedding clothes.
Seeing the highlights of this contest of immodesty and vulgarity on the television screen, I began to doubt my own Muslim-ness and the reason for the creation of Pakistan became blurred in my mind. The women that God had ordered to be in purdah while leaving their houses, could be seen participating half-nude in the fashion show. And those men who had been ordered to lower their gazes, were playing the role of spectators in these displays of immodesty. This show of immodesty was considered very successful and those participating in it expressed the hope that this vulgarity would continue and also that Pakistan can earn a lot of money from the success of the fashion industry. May God protect us from such success and such wealth. Amen.
The grief is not over how a small Westernized minority is out to destroy our religious and social values in this way. But the real sadness is over how, despite the clear instructions of Allah and His Prophet (PBUH), and despite the promise of the Constitution of Pakistan that an environment based on religious values and Islamic teachings will be created in Pakistan so that Muslims can live their lives according to the Quran and Sunnah, there is no one to stop those making fun of Islamic values. I don’t know who allowed such a fashion show to be held. This trend of fashion shows and catwalks began in Pakistan a few years ago and because of a lack of any controls, has gone, as in the West and India, towards obscenity.
Despite seeing this vulgarity on television screens, nobody condemned it and neither was there any protest. No ruler spoke about it and neither did any opposition leader. The Islamic [sic] parties and their leaders also remained silent, and parliament remained as insensate as the administration. If President Zardari and Prime Minister Gilani are unable to see all this, what reasons have compelled Mian Nawaz Sharif, Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan, Imran Khan, Syed Munawwar Hassan and Maulana Fazlur Rehman to keep silent? Why is the higher judiciary not taking suo moto notice of this vulgarity? Why is Pakistan’s media unable to fathom this evil as evil? At least I don’t have the answers to these questions.
What I am really amazed at is that in a city such as Karachi, where most of the population is educated and politically aware, not even one person came on to the streets in peaceful protest against this vulgarity. If our politicians, parliament, government, judiciary, media and masses are so insensate, we will definitely touch the extremes of moral degeneration like the West. In any case, we don’t have anything left other than shame and modesty and moral and social values. These are the values that raise us above the West. If today we do not guard them and give ourselves to the wind to take us wherever it chooses, we will be completely destroyed.
The current silence and insensitivity is very painful. I wish that we would realize that if today we remain silent about this obscenity and vulgarity because the girls and women performing in fashion shows and abhorrent TV commercials are not our own daughters, then remember that tomorrow, the place of these girls and women could be taken by the daughter, sister, wife or mother of one of today’s spectators or other members of an insensate society and its responsible people. And they will be doing the catwalk half-naked in front of thousands of people."

Don't forget to send Jang and Abbasi some words of appreciation for safeguarding our values.

Islam, Female TV Hosts, Blasphemy Law and Pakistan.


Verse No. 53 of Surat al-Ahzab, or the Confederates (Interpretation of the meaning); "...for anything ye want, ask them from before a screen: that makes for greater purity for your hearts and for theirs..."

In explaining this Verse, Ibn Kathir (May Allaah have mercy on him) said: "Meaning, as I forbade you to enter their rooms, I forbid you to look at them at all. If one wants to take something from a woman, one should do so without looking at her. If one wants to ask a woman for something, the same has to be done from behind a screen."

The Prophet (May peace and blessings be upon him) enforced separation of men and women even at Allaah’s most revered and preferred place, the mosque. This was accomplished via the separation of the women’s rows from the men’s; men were asked to stay in the mosque after completion of the obligatory prayer so that women will have enough time to leave the mosque; and, a special door was assigned to women. Evidence of the foregoing are:

Umm Salamah (May Allah be pleased with her) said that after Allah’s Messenger (May peace and blessings be upon him) said "as-Salamu ‘Alaykum wa Rahmatullah’ twice announcing the end of prayer, women would stand up and leave. He would stay for a while before leaving. Ibn Shihab said that he thought that the staying of the Prophet (May peace and blessings be upon him) was in order for the women to be able to leave before the men who wanted to depart." Narrated by al-Bukhari under No. 793.

Abu Dawood under No. 876 narrates the same hadith in Kitab al-Salaat under the title "Insiraaf an-Nisaa’ Qabl al-Rijaal min al-Salaah" (Departure of Women before Men after the Prayer). Ibn ‘Umar said that Allah’s Messenger (May peace and blessings be upon him) said: "We should leave this door (of the mosque) for women." Naafi’ said: "Ibn ‘Umar never again entered through that door until he died." Narrated by Abu Dawood under No. 484 in "Kitab as-Salah" under the Chapter entitled: "at-Tashdid fi Thalik".

Abu Hurayrah said that the Prophet (May peace and blessings be upon him) said: ""The best of the men’s rows is the first and the worst is the last, and the best of the women’s rows is the last and the worst in the first." Narrated by Muslim under No. 664.

This is the greatest evidence that the Law of Islam (Shari'ah) forbids meeting and mixing of men and women. The farther the men are from the women’s rows, the better, and vice versa.

If these procedures and precautions were prescribed and adhered to in a mosque, which is a pure place of worship where people are as far away as they ever are from the arousal of desire and temptation, then no doubt the same procedures need to be followed even more rigorously at other places.

Abu Usayd al-Ansari narrated that he heard Allah’s Messenger (May peace and blessings be upon him) say to the women on his way out of the mosque when he saw men and women mixing together on their way home:

‘Give way (i.e., walk to the sides) as it is not appropriate for you to walk in the middle the road.’ Thereafter, women would walk so close to the wall that their dresses would get caught on it. Narrated by Abu Dawood in "Kitab al-Adab min Sunanihi, Chapter: Mashyu an-Nisa Ma’ ar-Rijal fi at-Tariq.

والأدلة على تحريم الاختلاط في الكتاب والسنّة كثيرة ومنها :

قوله سبحانه :{ وإذا سألتموهن متاعاً فاسألوهن من وراء حجاب ذلكم أطهر لقلوبكم وقلوبهن} الأحزاب 53.

قال ابن كثير رحمه الله في تفسير الآية : أي وكما نهيتكم عن الدخول عليهن كذلك لا تنظروا إليهن بالكلية ولو كان لأحدكم حاجة يريد تناولها منهن فلا ينظر إليهن ولا يسألهن حاجة إلا من وراء حجاب .

وقد راعى النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم منع اختلاط الرّجال بالنساء حتى في أحبّ بقاع الأرض إلى الله وهي المساجد وذلك بفصل صفوف النّساء عن الرّجال ، والمكث بعد السلام حتى ينصرف النساء ، وتخصيص باب خاص في المسجد للنساء . والأدلّة على ذلك ما يلي :

عن أم سَلَمَةَ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهَا قَالَتْ كَانَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ إِذَا سَلَّمَ قَامَ النِّسَاءُ حِينَ يَقْضِي تَسْلِيمَهُ وَمَكَثَ يَسِيرًا قَبْلَ أَنْ يَقُومَ قَالَ ابْنُ شِهَابٍ فَأُرَى وَاللَّهُ أَعْلَمُ أَنَّ مُكْثَهُ لِكَيْ يَنْفُذَ النِّسَاءُ قَبْلَ أَنْ يُدْرِكَهُنَّ مَنْ انْصَرَفَ مِنْ الْقَوْمِ" رواه البخاري رقم (793).

ورواه أبو داود رقم 876 في كتاب الصلاة وعنون عليه باب انصراف النساء قبل الرجال من الصلاة .

وعَنْ ابْنِ عُمَرَ قَالَ : قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ لَوْ تَرَكْنَا هَذَا الْبَابَ لِلنِّسَاءِ قَالَ نَافِعٌ فَلَمْ يَدْخُلْ مِنْهُ ابْنُ عُمَرَ حَتَّى مَاتَ" رواه أبو داود رقم (484) في كتاب الصلاة باب التشديد في ذلك .

وعن أبي هريرة قال : قال النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم : " خَيْرُ صُفُوفِ الرِّجَالِ أَوَّلُهَا وَشَرُّهَا آخِرُهَا وَخَيْرُ صُفُوفِ النِّسَاءِ آخِرُهَا وَشَرُّهَا أَوَّلُهَا " . رواه مسلم رقم 664

وهذا من أعظم الأدلة على منع الشريعة للاختلاط وأنه كلّما كان الرّجل أبعد عن صفوف النساء كان أفضل وكلما كانت المرأة أبعد عن صفوف الرّجال كان أفضل لها .

وإذا كانت هذه الإجراءات قد اتّخذت في المسجد وهو مكان العبادة الطّاهر الذي يكون فيه النّساء والرّجال أبعد ما يكون عن ثوران الشهوات فاتّخاذها في غيره ولا شكّ من باب أولى .

وقد روى أَبو أُسَيْدٍ الْأَنْصَارِيّ أَنَّهُ سَمِعَ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ يَقُولُ وَهُوَ خَارِجٌ مِنْ الْمَسْجِدِ فَاخْتَلَطَ الرِّجَالُ مَعَ النِّسَاءِ فِي الطَّرِيقِ فَقَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ لِلنِّسَاءِ اسْتَأْخِرْنَ فَإِنَّهُ لَيْسَ لَكُنَّ أَنْ تَحْقُقْنَ الطَّرِيقَ ( تَسِرْن وسط الطريق ) عَلَيْكُنَّ بِحَافَّاتِ الطَّرِيقِ فَكَانَتْ الْمَرْأَةُ تَلْتَصِقُ بِالْجِدَارِ حَتَّى إِنَّ ثَوْبَهَا لَيَتَعَلَّقُ بِالْجِدَارِ مِنْ لُصُوقِهَا بِهِ . رواه أبو داود في كتاب الأدب من سننه باب : مشي النساء مع الرجال في الطّريق .

So disgusting comments about a lady who never portrayed to be a Islamci hypcrite.It is not job of ex IB officer and a blogger to give personal attacks on working ladies of media as Islma has given full rights to pass her life according to his/her own will.if she is crimanl courts are her and if she is sinner let God handle her in His way of judgment
By the why an extract from your words.
What is your favorite book and why?

Answer: I like Harold Robbins (RIP)’s Novel very much because novels were vulgar, smutty, crude, obscene and above all very straight forward/blunt and raunchy.
What is your favorite book and why?

why you like them are you vulgar, smutty, crude, obscene and above all very straight forward/blunt and raunchy.
so it means you can be involved in practicing all what you like to read so try ot throw stones other when you have no vulgar, smutty, crude, obscene and raunchy qualities as all are highly prohibited in Islamic society for men too.
This article is revealing your association for talibanic thoughts in which every thing is appropriate for you but highly forbidden for ladies of Islamic society.

Reply to nazia:
touche sister (or brother). its remarkable that the logic you propound of "Islma has given full rights to pass her life according to his/her own will" defies the basic foundations of Islam, no where in Islam is said the human are given rights to live their lives according to their "will".Either you' arent a muslim or you never ever read the Quran or Ahadith. Islam is "submiting your will to Allah's will" otherwise there's no need to do what quran or ahadith says, do whatever you like make your own sharia laws. as it suits you.. secondly what do you know about "talibanic thoughts". where do you get your information? how many talibs have you seen or met? certainly if geo/cnn/bbc/dawn etc are your sources then surely you're right.
