Do you wear a Hijab? Give it a try today
The pea is a splendid plant. It proudly displays its strong green Hijab. It protects it from the hot and cold weather and guards it from insects. Allah has blessed the pea with a special Hijab, because without it, the seeds would scatter, dry up and die.
The orange keeps itself within its shiny orange Hijab to protect its delicious fruit. Otherwise it-looses its taste too.
So are the banana, the coconut and the pomegranate. Each one has an elegant and unique Hijab, which protects it from disease and destruction.
The jewel of the sea, the pearl, has been given a very tough and rugged Hijab - oyster shell. It protects it from sea animals and keeps it sparkling and shining inside.
However, the most beloved of Allah in all His creation is the Muslim girl who wears the Hijab. She knows it is a gift from Allah. It protects her from harm, injury and mischief. She wears it knowing it gives her dignity, beauty and respect. So precious she can be that she hides herself beneath her Hijab.
“Allah does not look at your body and face; rather he looks at your heart” [at-tirmidhi]
“Say to the believing men that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty……And say to the believing women that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty; that they should not display their beauty and ornaments except what ordinarily appear thereof; that they should draw their veils over their bosoms….” (Qur’an 24:30-31)
“O Prophet, tell your wives and daughters and the believing women that they should cast their outer garments over their bodies (when abroad) so that they should be known and not molested” (Qur’an 33:59).

A cute analogy. But it falls short. Fruit, vegetables and oysters do not have a choice. They do not have a heart, mind and soul. Where as all females across the globe should have the right to choice. The freedom to make their own decisions. The proper knowledge to learn the difference between right and wrong.
“She knows it is a gift from Allah. It protects her from harm, injury and mischief. She wears it knowing it gives her dignity, beauty and respect.”
An article of clothing can not replace what one has inside one’s heart, mind and soul.
Common sense, morals, ethics and intelligence are what brings about, protection from mischief, dignity, beauty and respect.
Harm and injury can not be prevented because of a certain article of clothing either.Practicing saftey techniques and not looking for trouble can be helpful towards preventing harm and injury. Although if someone wants to harm another, it is hard to keep that from happening. There are bad people in this world who go out of their way to hurt women and girls. I do not understand why you think a scarf can do anything to stop a bad person from hurting a female. It is just not true.
Millions of females world wide who do not wear the hijab, have the same lovely and upstanding qualities, as dignity, beauty and respect.

Jazakallah Red Doll for ur comment
right u r they dont have heart and soul, its just an expression to tell the importance of hijaab. Indeed women has freedom to make their own decisions, to recognize the difference between right and wrong.
“An article of clothing can not replace what one has inside one’s heart, mind and soul.”
Our appearance shows what is inside our heart and mind. I dont think u r a Muslim. Cuz only a Muslim girl can understand the importance of Hijaab.
U dont even know what Hijaab is…it is not a piece of cloth to cover the head, Hijaab is alot more than that. I suggest u to read some explanations regarding Hijaab, in my blog.
