Behind the scarf like a pearl by Nayzak Behind the scarf like a pearl by Nayzak
Assalaamu alaikum[Peace be to you],

here's another Poem about Hijab and Muslim woman I'd like to share with you guys and girls. it's called "Hijab" (it was submitted to [link]):


You look at me and call me oppressed,
Simply because of the way I'm dressed,

You know me not for what is inside,
You judge the clothing I wear with pride,

My body is not for your eyes to hold,
You must speak to my mind, not my feminine mould,

I'm an individual. I'm no man's slave,
It's Allah's pleasure that I only crave,

I have a voice so I will be heard,
For in my heart I carry His word,

"O ye women, wrap close your cloak,
So you won't be bothered by ignorant folk".

Man doesn't tell me to dress this way,
It's law from God that I obey,

Oppressed is something I'm truly not,
For liberation is what I've got,

It was given to me many years ago,
With the right to prosper, the right to grow,

I can climb mountains or cross the seas,
Expand my mind in all degrees,

For God Himself gave us liberty,
When He sent Islam, to you and me !

--


I wanted to convey a "special" mood in this drawing of mine. let me know what impact it has on you and if you like it.

Assalaamu alaikum[Peace be to you]

Inspiring, and oh so beautiful. I love the colours (pink is so happy and cheerful) and the way her clothes flow in the wind giving a sense of ease within herself. The poem was so educational to me personally so I just want to thank you :)

Combination of both poem and picture is a win, win for me
Like their both saying "Freedom!"

I love the design, and even though I don't agree with some things about Islam, I can agree that women don't need to show skin to be seen as beautiful. Congratulations on the DD, this picture is so pretty. It's so bubbly and cheerful. I really think the sunflower gives it a nice touch. It's a pop of yellow that keeps her outfit from being so monocromatic with the pink color scheme.

I recently read a book about the mulism customs. It blew my mind because everything i've heard about them wasn't anything from the truth. I actually have a very strong respect for these women now, They wrapped their bodies in these beautiful clothes even if a lof of people would call them not that pretty. they also automatically think that the women are oppressed or beating and mistreated. It's far far from the truth. It's a sort of protection in a way along with having to do with their religion in a very powerful way. They are beautiful and attractive but not with flanting their bodies and skin but with who they truly are inside.

I love your drawing <3 <3 so beautiful and the poem is very striking in truth. I adore this <3

No, I don't think the women there are opressed because of what they wear, but the many many restrictions, beatings, and laws against them.

no beating is allowed in Islam.
as for restrictions, there are restrictions upon men as well as women. all religions have restrictions. all countries laws have restrictions.
