Standard

Author’s note:

This lovely poem has been duly written by Humza Oza, a heavy-hearted individual, with a lot of substance, and a lot of important & beautiful things to write about.

Why don’t you see?

And continue to suffer indignity

Hijab is not what brings you down
Verily, your scarf is your crown

For you see in Islam, women are royalty
Virtuous and filled with true beauty

And only for worthy eyes to see

So you see, the veil is not opression
Nor does it bring women in depression

Women of the World

Do you now see?
Hijab is what truly sets you free

Humza Oza/2013

  1. If women don’t want to wear the hijab, then so be it. Some women and men do see it as a sign of oppression, especially when it is forced on women through the law. In Muslim countries you have men who pluck their eye-brows, and parade around like guidos in tight muscle shirts, while women are covered from head to toe in bed sheets. How gay is that? I think there is some serious sexual repression in the Islamic world.

    • 1. The Islamic-World no longer exists, at the moment, the Muslim-World exists, just like there’s no such thing as an Islamic-State in the world, right now, there are Muslim-Countries.

      2. Sexual-Repression does, unfortunately, exists within the Muslim-World. However, the reasons for this are not at all cut-and-dry, nor are they linear conclusions. There are many reasons: the negative-actions of Muslims ourselves, as well as the negative influences of Non-Muslims (via conquest, colonization, occupation, etc.), within the Muslim-World, which has caused not only sexual-repression, but, also oversexualization.

      3. Yeah, for the record: “…men who pluck their eye-brows, and parade around like guidos in tight muscle shirts, while women are covered from head to toe…” is very hypocritical. But, this is why I’v e written this:
