As for the area between the navel and the knees, this is 'awrah and is to be covered in front of everyone. ... Continue Reading

Hijaab is Ultimate Freedom

Hijaab (Islamic covering) has become a highly controversial issue in the West in general and in France in particular after the ban on wearing Hijaab in its public schools and other places. This ban came as part of the policy of racial discrimination and negative attitudes towards Islam, which aims at eliminating the means of understating the importance of Hijaab and its role in society. However, this pressure should not prevent the Muslim woman from adhering to her Hijaab even if this requires leaving the country that fights it ... more
