Ok. So one of my friend shared this link on facebook. I'm feeling a little offensive because I don't wear hijab/headscarf as a Muslim.
1) The first statement says, it is because of those who doesn't wear hijab is the reason behind the increasing rape cases happening in Malaysia (or around the world).
Ok. Well, are they going to ask all those non-Muslims in Malaysia to wear hijab too just like in Arab? And those that do wear hijab get rapes because of us that doesn't wear them? Isn't that a little prejudice?
You know, my roomate's Russian friend laughed when she told her about rape cases in Malaysia. Its like they never even heard of it. Is it because they're allowed to do sex freely? maybe. But it's definitely not because everyone covers their body here. Its the mentality.
If they want to blame something, I'd rather they blame all those American tv shows and music video. They're showing more body than anyone in Malaysia. And yet, no one blames Astro or even the Internet. Most guys I know download porns, so where's the purpose of every girl wearing headscarf anyway?
2) I have nothing to say about the 2nd statement except that I'm one of those people who says those things. lol. Well, I felt defensive. But I know I'm wrong for not wearing hijab.
Although, I know people who wears hijab but does not solat. I think it's better to build the foundation first. Wearing hijab is not in the list of the Five Pillars of Islam. Only your Iman is in the question. I personally think, they should catch those men who doesn't perform their Solat & Friday prayers first before they start pointing fingers at women who doesn't wear hijab. Don't you agree?
3) Oh, this is like saying, it's ok to be one of those Munafik people. As long as you look good, like you're following God's rule, it's ok. It's ok if you're not doing it whole-heartedly, as long as people see you're doing it, it's ok. As far as I know, Islam isn't the forcing kind, and whatever you do you must do it with all sincerity. Wallahualam.
4) I ask for Allah to open my heart to wear hijab everyday. I'd rather they say to those people who doesn't even pray to Allah, "kalau tak solat sekarang, bila lagi?" and NEVER IN MY LIFE HAVE I HEARD "bertudunglah sebelum anda ditudungkan". If that's the case, the men should wear hijab as well. heh..
This is just my thought as one of those who doesn't wear a hijab. I don't know why not wearing hijab is one big issue as I see, there are so many other issues that contributes to a damage of society than not wearing hijab. Rape cases still happens in Arab even when everyone is wearing Burqa itself. Correct me if I'm wrong. Wallahualam. In the end, I just give in to Allah s.w.t, as He knows what is best for me. Amin...
