Says who?

by Bint Abdul Khaliq

Says who?

Brother,You cant grow a beard

Youíll be mocked at and jeered

Youíll be looked at as weird

Youíll be avoided and feared

Says who?

Sister,you cant wear that veil

Youíll look like a whale

Subjugated to the male

In society you will fail

Says who?

Brother, go and talk to her

She has so much to offer

How else will you find a partner?

Quick! Get her number!

Says who?

Sister, keep your gaze high

No need to be shy

You gotta find the perfect guy

With whom your heart will lie

Says who?

Brother,You donít have to pray

The Masjid is too far away

Itís for the old guys anyway

Youíll get there one day

Says who?

Sister,ignore the azaan

You favourite program is on

So many prayers have already gone

Just forget it and carry on

Says who?

To enter hell he will be the first

Of creation he is the worst

To lead man astray is his thirst

He is shaitaan the cursed

Thatís who.

Thanks. I feel grateful to all women who wear veils. I think no other type of women are humans at all. But about beard, I have an objection. Why do we put so much importance about which Allah (SWT) has not said a SINGLE word in the Quran??? If I give a nafl ibadah a priority over a farj ibadah, will it not be a violation of the rules of Allah? Islam has fallen into the pit of ruin only because we Muslims have forgotten the Law of Priority. We have learnt to forget or hide the truth under the veil of outward formalities that are not very important for religious purposes as much as for health and social purposes. Just look at today's Saudi Arabia. Look at the so called Muslims who hanker after money, money , and money. They are happy only if they are given bountry. But a true Muslim does not care about Allah's bounty. Not even about Allah's Rahhmat. He knows that Allah never does injustice. What he is concerned about is whether he is doing his duty. And keeping beard is not any main duty of a Muslim. Never. I myself feel sorry that my own wife doesn't put on hijaab. I cry to Allah. I feel so glad when I see a veiled woman. I feel honour for her. But still I have never felt anything for a bearded man only because he has beard. Even a goat may have beard. So what? If there is no Islam inside, no beard can be a signboard. That we all will knnow just at the moment of death. Most Muslim preachers only guess and analyze. Very few actually feel the religion.For many Islam has become a fashion. Will somebody please get me a wife with hijaab??
