I'm No Hijabister

Psst... psst...

I have 5 translated Qurans in my possession, all from various sources and they are either in Malay or in English. And I use them pretty heavily as my reference, especially on religion-related issues. I do not need to refer to any lebai or lebaiwati because Quran is the easiest book to read and understand. If you can solve mathematical equations, chemistry problems, study the galaxy, you can definitely understand the al-Quran.

Allah has promised that Quran has been made easy to understand, as indicated and repeated 4 times in Surah Qamar (54:17, 54:22, 54:32, 54:40)

"And We have indeed made the Qur'an easy to understand and remember: then is there any that will receive admonition?وَلَقَدْ يَسَّرْنَا الْقُرْآنَ لِلذِّكْرِ فَهَلْ مِن مُّدَّكِرٍ"

See... and you know Allah never lies.

Well, here are some good articles for you to read... pure logic and make sense.

And read this one too . It is written in Bahasa Melayu, kalau tak faham jugak, tatau la kan.

After you have read it through, now you know why I do not adorn hijab until now. Because it is purely cultural - Arab culture. And I believe it's the woman's behaviour, her moral, her attitude that define her whether she's a good or a bad woman.

Surah al-A'raf (7:26) - "Children of Adam, we have provided you with garments to cover your bodies, as well as to adorn you. But THE BEST GARMENT is the garment of piety/righteousness. These are some of God's signs, so that they may be mindful."

But don't get me wrong, I'm not against those who want to wear hijabs and I am not stopping anyone from wearing it either. Most of the people I know are hijabisters, but I have no problems making friends with them. So long we live by this rule - aku tak kacau kau, kau jangan kacau aku - all will be fine.
This is just my opinion, my belief, my understanding. Trust me, I could not find anywhere in the Quran that says hijab is mandatory. Even if it is, I strongly believe God will look at many angles before He judges us. God is great, pengasih dan penyayang. God is not stupid!

I don't follow blindly, I read and do a lot of checking first before I take action or believe into something. And I will always keep my curiosity level high and keep applying critical thinking by always asking questions (how, why, what, when, who). That's how we learn new stuff. Discover new things. I have a brain (God's greatest gift) here within my thick skull and I intend to use it well.

Last but not the least, ask yourself - kenapa negara-negara Middle East sangat  mundur dan berantakan tak sudah-sudah sedangkan mereka ni boleh dikatakan 100% lebih Islamik dari negara-negara lain? Kenapa negara-negara kafirun tak seteruk mana malah jauh lebih baik dari negara Middle East? Mereka dulu pun berperang jugak tapi sekarang mereka sudah matang dan bijak, perang mereka sekarang adalah perang ekonomi. Tapi negara Islam dari dulu sampai sekarang masih macam tu, perang berbunuhan tak sudah-sudah, sesama umat Islam pulak tu. They are killing their own brothers and sisters yang percayakan Tuhan yang sama. Adakah ini Islamik? Apakah ciri keislaman umat Middle East tu benar-benar Islamik, atau hanyalah 'made-believe' dan syok sendiri? Nak salahkan siapa? Salahkan Amerika, salahkan Yahudi? Jangan salahkan syaitan, syaitan itu memang jahat, salahkan diri sendiri kerana terpedaya dan tak tau menilai apa yang baik apa yang buruk. And we still nak follow cara makan, CARA BERPAKAIAN, lifestyle, kaum-kaum Middle East yang mundur dan barbaric ni?
Go figure....
