CHAPTER 24 HIJAAB - ANOTHER FALSEHOOD COPIED FROM THE CHRISTIAN BIBLE
Throughout this book my point has also been that the ulema of Ahlul Sunnah and Shiah reject the Quran. They are kuffar or disbelievers of the Quran. They do not even know how to open the Quran and refer to its verses. Even when they refer to the Quran, they reject the verses. For example the ulema cannot explain why despite the word HIJAAB being mentioned SO MANY times in the Quran (seven times) they do not have the courage to refer to even one of those verses in the Quran that mention the word HIJAAB to defend their false theories of HIJAAB as headcovering ? Is this not strange ? They reject all the verses in the Quran that talk about HIJAAB. The ulema actually turn coward and run away when you ask them to refer to even one verse in the Quran that has the word HIJAAB.
The ulema repeat the basic mistake of all the Ahlul Sunnah Wal Jamaah, Shiah, Ahmadiyah, Wahhabis etc in that they simply cannot quote a verse from the Quran properly OR accurately.
This is typical mindboggling Ulema Shuffle. They want to defend what they have defined as HIJAAB. But they reject all the verses in the Quran that mention HIJAAB. Instead they pick another totally unrelated word called ‘khimar’ and say ‘khimar’ is now HIJAAB or headcovering. This is the Ulema Shuffle.
Let us address the ulema’s confusion about KHUMUR. The word ‘KHUMUR’ is mentioned in Surah 24:31 and the ulema say it means ‘head covering’. The word in Surah 24:31 is actually KHUMUUR and NOT KHIMAAR. Plural and NOT singular.
First let us see what the Prophet has taught us in Surah 24:31 in full :
Waqul lilmuminati yaghdudna min absarihinna wayahfathna furoojahunna wala yubdeena zeenatahunna illa ma thahara minha walyadribna bikhumurihinna AAala juyoobihinna wala yubdeena zeenatahunna illa libuAAoolatihinna aw abaihinna aw abai buAAoolatihinna aw abnaihinna aw abnai buAAoolatihinna aw ikhwanihinna aw banee ikhwanihinna aw banee akhawatihinna aw nisaihinna aw ma malakat aymanuhunna awi alttabiAAeena ghayri olee alirbati mina alrrijali awi alttifli allatheena lam yathharoo AAala AAawrati alnnisai wala yadribna biarjulihinna liyuAAlama ma yukhfeena min zeenatihinna watooboo ila Allahi jameeAAan ayyuha almuminoona laAAallakum tuflihoona
Surah 24:31 “And say to the believing women that they should lower their gaze and guard their chastity; that they should not display their beauty except what appears from her; that they should strike with their covers upon their bosoms and not display their beauty except to their husbands, their fathers, their husband's fathers, their sons, their husbands' sons, their brothers or their brothers' sons, or their sisters' sons, or their women, or those whom their right hands possess, or male servants free of physical needs, or small children who have no sense of women’s nakedness (AWRAATI AL NISSAA); and that they should not strike with their feet in order to draw attention to what is hidden from their beauty (YUKHFEENA MIN ZEENATIHINNA) . And O ye Believers! turn ye all together towards Allah, that ye may attain Bliss”.
Here is the Arabic transliteration: walyadribna bikhumurihinna AAala juyoobihinna which means ‘strike with their covers upon their bosoms’.
The ulema say women must first wear the KHUMUR over their heads and after that pull the KHUMUR over their bosoms. Firstly the word ‘Yadribna’ means ‘to strike over’ and not ‘WEAR’. Proof ? The same word ‘yadribna’ occurs a second time in the same verse 24:31 above.
Here is the second occurrence of the word ‘yadribna’ : : “yadribna biarjulihinna” which means ‘strike with their feet’ (to attract attention). The ulema cannot explain why ‘yadribna’ is taken to mean ‘strike’ with reference to feet but becomes ‘wear’ with reference to covers ?
The verse simply says the women must cover their bosoms with their garments. There is no mention of head in this verse at all. KHUMUR does not mean head covering at all. KHUMUR simple means something that covers. In this context it is the clothes that must be pulled over the bosom.
Now let us address the ulema’s confusion over HIJAAB. The whole issue of women covering the head is labeled ‘HIJAAB’ by the ulema. Here is a simple question : Why is it that the ulema are totally unable to quote even one verse from the Quran that mentions the word HIJAAB ? If the issue at hand is really HIJAAB surely there must be at least one verse in the Quran touching on the matter ? Why is it that the ulema cannot even quote one verse from the Quran to substantiate their HIJAAB ?
Answer : The ulema do not know how to turn the pages of the Quran to search for the word HIJAAB.
Well allow me to help them in this regard. Let us see the word HIJAAB as it is taught by the Prophet in the Quran.
Hijaab means a barrier, a curtain or a divider. It appears in the following verses
Surah 7:46 between the dwellers of heall and heaven is a HIJAAB (barrier).
Surah 17:45 between believers and disbelievers is a HIJAAB (barrier)
Surah 19:17 Mary took a HIJAAB (barrier) and stayed apart from her folk
Surah 33:53 men must speak to the Prophet’s wives from behind a HIJAAB (barrier)
Surah 38:32 Solomon was preoccupied with the good things until they became hidden behind a HIJAAB (barrier)
Surah 41:5 disbelievers say to Prophet “between us and you is a HIJAAB (barrier)”
Surah 42:51 God does not speak to any human except from behind a HIJAAB (barrier).
Despite HIJAAB being stated clearly seven times in the Quran not once does it refer to the head cover which the ulema want the women to wear on their heads.
There is only one verse in the whole Quran where the Prophet taught us that HIJAAB refers to modesty between men and women. And here is that verse in full:
Surah 33:53 Ya ayyuha allatheena amanoo la tadkhuloo buyoota alnnabiyyi illa an yuthana lakum ila taAAamin ghayra nathireena inahu walakin itha duAAeetum faodkhuloo faitha taAAimtum faintashiroo wala mustaniseena lihadeethin inna thalikum kana yuthee alnnabiyya fayastahyee minkum waAllahu la yastahyee mina alhaqqi waitha saaltumoohunna mataAAan faisaloohunna min warai hijabin thalikum atharu liquloobikum waquloobihinna wama kana lakum an tuthoo rasoola Allahi wala an tankihoo azwajahu min baAAdihi abadan inna thalikum kana AAinda Allahi AAatheeman
Surah 33:53 “O ye who believe! Enter not the Prophet's houses,- until leave is given you,- for a meal, not to wait for its preparation: but when ye are invited, enter; and when ye have taken your meal, disperse, without seeking familiar talk. Such (behaviour) annoys the Prophet: he is ashamed to dismiss you, but Allah is not ashamed (to tell you) the truth. And when ye ask his ladies anything, ask them from behind a HIJAAB: that makes for greater purity for your hearts and for theirs. Nor is it right for you that ye should annoy Allah's Messenger, or that ye should marry his widows after him at any time. Truly such a thing is in Allah's sight an enormity”.
The ulema must pay close attention to this verse :
waitha saaltumoohunna mataAAan faisaloohunna min warai hijabin thalikum atharu liquloobikum waquloobihinna : And when ye ask his ladies anything, ask them from behind a HIJAAB: that makes for greater purity for your hearts and for theirs.
It appears that the only verse in the whole Quran which prescribes HIJAAB as a token of modesty (Proof : that makes for greater purity for your hearts and for theirs) between men and women is prescribed for MEN. IN THIS VERSE IT IS THE MEN WHO MUST SPEAK TO THE WOMEN (WIVES OF PROPHET) FROM BEHIND A HIJAAB !!
Borrowing from the ulema’s twisted logic, this means that the men must wear a headcovering when they talk to the Prophet’s ladies !
There is absolutely no mention of head cover for women or men in any verse in the Quran.
WHERE DOES THE HEAD COVER FOR WOMEN REALLY COME FROM ?
Now we will solve the mystery of where the ulema plagiarized the idea of the head cover for women. Here it is :
Bible, 1st Corinthians 11
5And every woman who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head--it is just as though her head were shaved. 6If a woman does not cover her head, she should have her hair cut off; and if it is a disgrace for a woman to have her hair cut or shaved off, she should cover her head. 7
13Judge for yourselves: Is it proper for a woman to pray to God with her head uncovered?
The idea that a woman shall cover her head especially when she is ‘praying’ is stolen from the Christian Bible. That is why until today the best head cover is worn by the Catholic nuns. Remember the late Mother Theresa and her Christian nuns ? Where did Mother Theresa learn to wear the head cover ? Obviously not from the ulema. She learnt it from her Bible. And as we all know the Bible came long before the ulema.
The ulema have plagiarized material from the Bible and tried to pass it off as ‘hadith Bukhari’ and other such fake stories.
THE REAL HIJAAB
What is the real hijaab ? Here it is :
Surah 17 : 45 And when you recite the Quran, We place between you and those who do not believe in the hereafter a hidden HIJAAB.
So there will always be a HIJAAB or barrier between those who believe in the Quran and those who reject it. People who believe in the Quran will believe that the Quran is complete and fully detailed.
People who reject the Quran will say ‘You cannot know the message of the Quran without the fake hadeeth of Bukhari, the ulema etc”.
In brief there is a HIJAAB or barrier until the Last Day between the Muslims who believe in God, the Prophet and the Quran and those who do not believe in God, the Prophet and the Quran like the Ahlul Sunnah Wal Jamaah, Shiah, Qadiani, Wahhabi, Ahmadiyah, Druze, Christians, Jews, Hindus and others who believe instead in the fake hadith bukhari, khabar stories, bible, jewish books, etc.
Only those who believe in God, the Prophet and the Quran will be successful. Those who believe in fake hadith of Ahlul Sunnah, Shiah, Wahhabi, Qadiani, Hindus, Christians and Jews will be the ultimate losers.
In many countries women as well as men need to cover their heads. The Arctic Eskimos, the bone dry desert Arab men and women and also the men and women who live in the prairies and the cold climates or dry windy climates. Other men and women who live in the tropics or the rainforest may suffer hair problems, skin problems and maybe even headaches and discomfort if they cover their heads in the hot humid weather. God has given every human being enough sense to know what he or she should wear.
But it is a great sin and a major shirk (polytheism or mushrik) if anyone insists that women wearing a head cover is a commandment from God or the Prophet. People who believe that covering their head is a commandment from God and the Prophet are committing a great blasphemy. They only follow the Christian Bible.
Not only will they suffer unnecessary discomfort, headaches, skin problems and hair problems in this life but they may end up suffering punishment from God for upholding a polytheistic (mushrik) belief. They become mushriks. A terrible fate.
