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.
