Ladies Edition: No Joking, laughing and fun with Non Mahrams

In the name of Allah , the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful.


1/ Some sisters assume that since they are properly covered, its okay for them to sit around
and

talk, laugh, joke, etc. with the men, but that’s not right, even if he is ‘the Shaikh’.

As Allaah (swt) says:

"........then be not soft in speech, lest he in whose heart is a disease (of hypocrisy, or evil desire for adultery, etc.) should be moved with desire, but speak in an honourable manner."  
[Al-Quran:Surat Al-Ahzab:Verse 32]

So talk to them when there is a specific need, and in a manner that is not necessarily rude, yet it is polite but firm.

2/ Staring at the Classmates/males/Muslims brothers or ‘checking them out’ is NOT Hijaab

Some of female Muslim sister are involved in staring at opposite at market, road, school, 

colleges and other places which is impressible. 

As Allah (swt) says: 

"And tell the believing women to lower their gaze (from looking at forbidden things), and protect their private parts (from illegal sexual acts, etc.) and not to show off their adornment except only that which is apparent (like palms of hands or one eye or both eyes for necessity to see the way, or outer dress like veil, gloves, head-cover, apron, etc.), and to draw their veils all over Juyubihinna (i.e. their bodies, faces, necks and bosoms, etc.) and not to reveal their adornment.........."
Allaah orders us to “lower your gaze” in the above verse. Why? Because a single ‘look’ can say

 more than a thousand words. So, even if you are properly covered, keep those eyes down, 

conduct yourself with ‘Hayaa’, and avoid ‘fitnah’

--------------------------------------------------------------------



3/ Chatting on the internet/phone is also against proper Hijab, either 
There is no such thing as “we’re just friends”. Talking to non-Mahrams is wrong even if it is 

through the internet or telephone. There are too many stories of illegal relationships, 

fornications, broken homes, extra-marital affairs and runaway brides to even mention. That 

is why in Islam anything that leads to haraam is also haraam. 


As Allaah (swt) says:

"........(Lawful to you in marriage) are chaste women from the believers and chaste women from those who were given the Scripture (Jews and Christians) before your time, when you have given their due Mahr (bridal money given by the husband to his wife at the time of marriage), desiring chastity (i.e. taking them in legal wedlock) not committing illegal sexual intercourse, nor taking them as girl-friends.........." 
[Al-Quran; Surat Ma'idah; Verse 5]
