In Defense of the Veil

I wrote this after a Muslim girl harshly criticized those who CHOOSE to wear the veil among her sisters. I wrote it in their defense and nothing more. As for the “shroud” comment, what I am trying to portray is that why are such girls running after fashion so blindly when at the end of the day your going to be buried in a shroud without makeup or fashionable clothes. We the Muslims bury both men AND women in a plain white shroud.  Therefore, I am speaking to those Muslim girls here who choose not to wear the veil themselves but criticize those who choose to wear it.

—————————————————————————–

You think what she wears is scary
But you have not judged her fairly

She wears what she does to please her Lord
And you wear your clothes to displease your Lord

Think not that she envies you with what you wear
Qualities which you have are abundant, but hers are rare

You may think her as simple & in your eyes low
But in the sight of her Creator her status daily may grow

She wishes nothing to be like you so think not that your better
Her weight of respect & honour in comparison to you is like a mountain to a feather

You run after fashion like a dog after his bone
She runs towards her Lord’s obedience, because to this she has sworn

While you embark on a journey which can lead to hell
Her Lord has honoured her with a status from which you fell

You think you feel sorry for her because what she has to do
But in reality she is pleased with herself & wishes nothing to be like you

Your tongue is full of filth with regards to her choice
She is the symbol & honour of Islam & to that we the Muslims rejoice

So offend her not, nor think of yourself as proud
Remember a day will come when we the Muslims will bury you with only a shroud

  1. Wow – so, the muslims are gonna bury me with a shroud? Hateful

    You talk about not judging someone unfairly and yet you assume I wear my clothes to ‘displease my lord’. Hypocritical

    People ‘like you’ just need to pack it up and move to a country where you fit in, pick any muslim country. Certainly you will be happier there. That way your hate and hypocrisy won’t be such a burden for you to bear.

    Oh and by the way, I do feel sorry for muslim women.

    • Calm down Harper..lol. I apologize if this offended you but I wrote this after a Muslim girl harshly criticized those who CHOOSE to wear the veil. I wrote it in their defense and nothing more. As for the “shroud” comment, what I am trying to portray is that why are such girls running after fashion so blindly when at the end of the day your going to be buried in a shroud without makeup or fashion clothes. We the Muslims bury both men AND women in a plain white shroud.

      Anyway, so I apologize if this offended you. You can probably tell from the poem that I was very angry at those women who were basically picking on veiled women.

      As for feeling sorry for Muslim women, then I don’t have to defend that because they already are proud of it. Cheers 🙂
