Westerners think women wearing the hijab/niqab is a suppression of women within islam. Far from it... It is a way of saying, "We are here, we are different, and here to let you know it.."
Thus the muslim brotherhood indoctrination, embracement, and unleashing of Sharia and Caliphate...

"Mass Islamity ~ Stop the Insanity”
On this episode, I will make the case against banning the hijab. Of course, it is an undeniable fact that throughout the Arab and Muslim world, the hijab is a symbol of the brutalization of women [especially in Islamo-Fascist terror states such as Iran, Saudi Arabia, and Hamas-controlled Gaza]. But is banning the hijab the answer, as what many people [particularly the wingnut Islamophbobes] suggest? I will show you why the answer is no. First of all, in America, people have the freedom of religion, which means that religion doesn't have to only be practiced in the closet. As someone who is religiously observant [Jewish] and who wears religious garments [Kippah and tzit tzit] out in public, I find it very concerning whenever there is a move to ban a particular public expression of religion [which includes banning a religious garment]. To be honest, as someone who lives in the US as of now [before I make Aliyah to Israel], in many ways, I find the issue of religious freedom to even be a bigger concern than US support for Israel [though I strongly support Israel and the US-Israel alliance]. Banning the hijab because we don't like that belief or what it symbolizes leads to a very ugly bigoted intolerant path, period. So in this episode, I will make the case against banning the hijab.
It is not uncommon to find Pagan high priestesses and celebrants wearing something on their heads, be it a full, face-covering veil, a headdress, a hair-covering scarf or shawl, or even a small, tiara-like circlet.
This week, Kalisara and RevKess are bringing you a panel discussion: Pagan women from many different paths and beliefs who share the practice of using veils and other head coverings in their ritual and/or daily lives.
While we have touched on this topic previously, this time we will hear from those women who practice veiling, discussing the why's, the how's, the when's, as well as the problems that can come from veiling. We will be hearing their stories, many of which embody a quiet strength reflective of the oft-veiled Matron Goddesses.

What is the real purpose of marriage? As the world continues to watch in horror, members of the terrorist group Boko Haram who kidnapped 234 Nigerian girls from their school April 14, have release yet another video bragging that they have converted all the girls to Islam. The video shows hijab clad girls reciting verses from the Holy Quran, appearing to be calm and unhurt. The name Boko Haram means "Western Education is Sinful" and leaders of the group have declared that the girls had no business being in school, they should be married instead. Does Islam teach subjugation of women to men? If not, do Muslim men believe it does? What is the concept of marriage in Islam? If Muslim wives are to be kept uneducated and subservient, what is the purpose of multiple wives in Islam? One reason why women in the West are apprehensive about the spread of Islam and the idea of Polygyny is the images of women being forced to quit school, cover up, recite prayers, and remain inside the house against their will. The idea of granting a man with this concept of marriage the right to have and oppress multiple wives is frightening to women. Are men with multiple wives benefitting women? Or are the women being exploited in the name of religion? Can polygyny ever result in fair and equal treatment of women or is it a repressive concept that should be banned forever? If polygyny is beneficial to women, how should men be trained and prepared to handle the responsibility of providing equal financial assistance, equal emotional support and equal companionship for several wives?
Hijab has nothing to do with being submissive to men but everything to do with being loyal to our Creator. In this message we will go over what "hijab" really means, the fact that Islam also gives men hijab and the benefits it brings. Women are NOT sex objects, eye-candy or forbidden fruit to be put out on display to tease and please men or to be measured, envied and judged by other women. Women are valuable and powerful in our own right without having to reveal the most precious thing we possess (our bodies).
With the media showing images of women in burka or what they believe to be hijab, it is easy to wonder why any woman would choose to dress this way. The reality is, hijab is worn with the one concept (loyalty) but in different ways by different women. Hijab can benefit ALL women. Women who enjoy swimming, working out or playing sports but hate the feeling of others measuring or comparing body parts. Women who want to be respected just as men who wear lose fitted clothes that do NOT hint of what they have. Hijab is NOT frumpy or an elderly way of dress, there is a whole world of fashion/beauty and style for hijibis that can help any women of any religion.
*Nasheed ~ No Beats Necessary - "How can you deny?
Most adults are fed up with the sagging pants fad. It is vulgar and disgusting, and some places of business have gone so far as to put up signs reading "No sagging". Such measures have been called discriminatory toward youth, particularly black youth who have popularized the look among their peers. But there have been other fashion expressions that have been associated with socially unacceptable behavior. Hoodies have also been banned in some places, seen as a common article of clothing worn by "thugs" or people intending to rob a place. Is this discrimination? After the 911 attack, a large portion of the American public seemed to become hysterical at the sight of anyone appearing to be of the Islamic faith. Women wearing religious head coverings were often harrassed on the street and those wearing face veils inside of stores were asked to take them off or leave the establishment. Can certain clothing be considered an indication that a person is unsafe to be around? Or is this stereotyping? What about standards of dress and public modesty? Should tight leggings that expose the buttocks be banned in public? Should low cut tops exposing cleavage be banned in public? Should the U.S. adopt a public dress code? Or is this an infringement on a constitutional right?
It has been related on the authority of Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) who said that the Messenger of Allah, May Allah bless him and grant him peace said: “There are two types of people who will enter the Hell-fire, whom I have not (as yet) seen:  People having whips similar to the tails of cows with which they will beat people, and  women who will be dressed yet appear to be naked. They will seduce men and be inclined towards them. Their heads will be like the swaying humps of bacterial camels. They will neither enter paradise, nor smell its fragrance, even though its fragrance can be smelt from such and such distance.” - this hadith has been related by Imam Muslim in his Sahih.
This hadith and various interpretations of it have been a hot topic of discussion for some time now. We will discuss the meaning of this hadith in light of the classical commentary of the traditional scholars and then comment on its contemporary implications, inshaa'Allah!

The Declaration of the Brothers (Watheeqah al-Ikhwaan) is a short, consise, yet comphensive book written by Shehu 'Uthman Dan Fodiyo (may Allah envelop him in His mercy). The importance of this text is indicated in its introduction wherein he states:
"This is The Declaration of the Brothers (Watheeqah al-Ikhwaan) for the Purpose of Expounding on the Proofs for the Obligation to Follow the Book, the Sunnah, & the Consensus (ijmaa’). As well as the Proofs for avoiding Innovation for whoever considers Islam as his religion, and the proof of kufr (disbelief) for whoever denies that; even if he considers Islam as his Religion."
The Shehu elaborates on a wide range of topics which are just as relevant today as they were when he composed this text over 200 years ago!
This blessed text will be taught by Imam Na’eem Abdullah.
His studies & lectures have also taken him throughout the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and Sudan.
