Why Hijab in Islam! Mufti Menk | Very Powerful Reminders

In Islam we are taught to dress modestly. This modest dressing is not just for the females. it is for the males as well and we are taught to be of high character conduct, values and so on. This modest dress is supposed to calm us. It is supposed to bring about a sense of peace, a sense of equality, whether you are rich or poor, whether you are fair or dark in complexion. Allah loves you, remember that.

Allah loves you an unmatched love; it’s up to you to reciprocate that. Remember my words, Allah loves you but do you love Allah, that’s the question?

If the answer is yes, how can you give up your prayer? How can you start exposing yourself?

I remember someone asks me a question and I’m taking the liberty of answering it here. Because I think it’s absolutely important. Why would Allah judge you based on your dress? Why do I need to cover my hair or my legs? Why would Allah actually judge me based on whether my legs are covered or my hair is covered, you see? These are the questions of today.

So I said for the same reason that He would judge you; if you prayed or not, if you stole or not, if you did anything else or not. These are rules and regulations. You call yourself a Muslim. What is the meaning of a Muslim? Islam is generally interpreted in two what is the meaning of a Muslim? Islam is generally interpreted in two different ways.

Islam which means to surrender and to submit:  Surrender, who surrendered? Anyone who wants to call themselves Muslim; it means they have surrendered.

There are two things; one is to submit and two is peace. Others will say Islam means to submit and surrender. The reality is it means both of them. you submit and surrender and you will achieve peace.

What you do need to know is life will be full of tests from the beginning to the end and Allah says that you are created to be tested. That’s all.

What Islam Says About Uncovering The Ankles And Above, Tattoos, Piercing Body! Ustad Asim Khan And Mufti Menk

Question; I would like to ask you on the ruling on covering the feet. I’m aware that women must cover, must cover from the ankle and above but I’m not sure about the covering of the ankle and below in front of non -Mahrams.

So is it permissible to leave what is below the ankle uncovered?

When Allah gave me the body it’s only to use for a few years that I’m on Earth after that it will decompose into the soil in the case of the vast majority.

Once we understand and realize that the body is entrusted To Us by the Supreme deity who it belongs to and we wants it back. We will then realize that we’re not allowed to do with it Whatever we want to do, but we will only be allowed to do what He allows us to do, what He has permitted.

But let’s look at the issue of tattoos.

We as Believers look at it by saying who gave me the right to make a permanent change to

This body of mine that the almighty has entrusted me with. So we should not be doing permanent tattoos.

The Young and the old don’t do permanent tattoos in a rush. I did a tattoo and now I don’t Know what to do;

In Sha Allah! These Beautiful Heart-Touching Words Will Change Your Dress Code Forever

In Surat Anfal Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’Ala  Makes Mention  Of The Gifts That He Bestows Upon Man And The Fact That He Doesn’T Take Them Away Until Man Deserves That They Be Taken Away.

That is because Allah would not change a favor which He had bestowed upon a people until they change what is within themselves. And indeed, Allah is Hearing and Knowing. (8:53)

How Many Of Us Lose Contentment Because We’Re Wealthy? You Know What That Means? We Became Wealthy, Temporary Contentment, We Forgot Allah. So Allah Snatches The Contentment Away.

Do Not Take blessings For Granted.  When Allah Has Given You Things Take It Seriously, Get Closer To Allah. So Many People Forget Allah On Their Wedding Days,  On The Day Of Eid, So Many People Turn Away From Allah On Days, When They Are Enjoying The Parties And Whatever Else They Have, Celebrating The Birth Of A Child Or Whatever It May Be Those Are The The Means Of Destruction Of Our Contentment.

We Destroy The Contentment That We’Ve Had, Why? Because We Forget Allah During Our Happy Days, The Next #Eid That We Have Remembered To Worship Allah, Thank Him, #Dress Appropriately, You Will Be Content.

The Next Time You Cut A Pair Of Clothing Or You Buy A Pair Of Clothing, Make Sure It Is Something That Is Modest And That Would Please Allah. If The Prophet Peace Be Upon Him Had To See You He Would Be Proud Of The Way You Dressed, Think About it.

We Always Say The Day That Covering Yourself Makes You Very Happy And The Day That Exposing Yourself Makes You Sad Is The Day That You Have Actually Developed A Better Relationship With Allah.

For All Days Try To Please Allah, Try To Please Allah And Do Things In The Right Way. Imagine People Look At Your Dress Code On The Day Of Your Wedding And They Say Wow I’D Like To Cover Like How Fatima Covered For Example And When They Do That You Get A Reward While Yours Lying Down At Home Without Even Knowing, You’Re Achieving Blessings….

You are Searching For Contentment. It Is All Over Revelation And This Is Why We Say Contentment Is Truly From Revelation. – #MuftiMenk

No Ambiguity On Hijab In The Quran | Mufti Menk & Dr Yasir Qadhi

#MuftiMenk mentions that in Islam we cannot just do what we want in terms of #dress. We have to dress in a specific. We cannot just do as we wish because we call ourselves Muslimeen and if we do as we wish then Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’ala tells us that you will have to pay for the choice you’ve made.

Dr. Yasir Qadhi said there is no ambiguity regarding #hijab (concept of #modesty)in the Quran in reply to a non-hijabi sister’s Question in the video clip.

Mufti Menk Quote in this clip “People today say I’m free to do whatever I want to do technically; you are right you are free but the choice you make will come at a price remember that you will have to pay for it either in the dunya or the akira or both”.

Beautiful & Practical Naseeha On Dress Code | Mufti Menk

In this short clip #MuftiMenk talks about to the issue of the #dresscode. Judging someone based on beauty is pagan that is totally unacceptable. So Allah says in order to give you the honour We ask you to conceal your #beauty.

Mufti Menk Quotes in this clip “Islam has made it clear that your #complexion is chosen by Allah. There is no virtue of a person coming from Africa over the one who comes from Arabia and vice versa except by their closeness to Allah. So my #sisters my #daughters, you are too special to be bothered about things that Allah has chosen for you”.

Hijab Is For Modesty Not Revealing Body By Skin-Tight Clothing

This following video clip is made for the purpose #Hijab in terms of Islam from the reminders of three prominent speakers regarding hijab with #Skintightclothing: #MuftiMenk Quotes in this clip, “when we say dress in Islam it doesn’t just mean what you’re putting on but it includes what how you carry yourself. When we talk of hijab, hijab is not just the type of clothing you have externally but it’s a condition that you carry yourself upon. It is a way of life as well. It’s part and parcel of your identity and that would include the men as well as the women”.

#DrZakirNaik makes mention of how woman’s status at time of Babylonian civilisation, Greek civilisation, Egyptian civilisation, Arab civilisation before revelations of the Quran was and How Islam uplifted women’s status.After Islam has given rights to the woman it has even shown as the way that women should maintain a status hijab has been prescribed to the woman so that she maintains the status. He mentions six-criteria for hijab given in the glorious Quran and hadith regarding clothing but this is not constitute them the complete hijab besides the hijab of the clothing also includes the behavior, the conduct, the attitude as well as the intention of the person. besides the hijab of the clothing there’s the hijab of the eyes, hijab of the heart, hijab of the mind, hijab of the thought it even includes the way a person talks, the way a person walks, and the way a person behaves.

Shaykh #OmarSuleiman speaks that Hijab is a symbol of modesty. It includes the way a person walk, talks, looks and thinks; All of it should be done modestly and applies to both Men and Women. So encourage wearing hijab properly and don’t beat each other down and make them feel like garbage help each other to get there but don’t blur the standard at the same time as about some hijabs….actually are a tease, they’re more of a tease than they are covering, don’t do something that would contradict the purpose of the hijab in response to the Question “what do you think of hijabis who wear tights”?

Hijab For Muslim Males | Mufti Menk

Be careful the way you use your mouths with your wives, be careful. #Hijab is to lower your gaze, to dress with clothing that is not tight.  It’s your (#muslimmale) duty you cannot show limbs and organs thinking, hey I’m a man, no no no; make sure you are dressed. With loose clothing and make sure that the material is good and so on. It’s not just for the women.  In fact, when Allah speaks of lowering the gaze and hijab, he speaks about the men first in Surat an Nur, tell the believing males first to lower their gazes and to protect their private parts.

#MuftiMenk urges to make a change now, go back to allah and ask Allah subhana allah talas goodness, has the time not come for your hearts to soften, come on you gotta say yes, yeah Allah, my heart; the time has come, my hearts are softened and Alhamdulillah I turn to you yeah Aallah, he mentioned the following the verse from the Quran.

“Has the time not come for those who have believed that their hearts should become humbly submissive at the remembrance of Allah and what has come down of the truth? And let them not be like those who were given the Scripture before, and a long period passed over them, so their hearts hardened; and many of them are defiantly disobedient”. (Surah al-Hadid 57:16)
We are human, we do falter, we do fall but at the same time turn back to Allah, He is merciful. He will forgive you but don’t plan to commit the sin again.
