What All Does the Hijab Hide?
The Hijab not only conceals a woman’s beauty, but also her longing eyes, the tears hidden within them, the marks of slaps on her cheeks, visible signs of illness on her face, her cracked lips, the dryness of her cheeks, her physical weakness, helplessness, and disease. The Hijab denies a woman’s humanity, disfigures her identity, and paves the way for her exploitation. Every evil, injustice, and oppression that happens to a woman is also hidden through this Hijab.”
The Bigger Picture: Whereas a woman in the West gets her freedom just by going to the court, Muslim women suffer horribly in an Islamic system due to these unjust and oppressive 10 Sharia Rulings. Islam provided women with almost no protection, and exposed them badly for blackmailing at the hands of their abusive husbands.
Muhammad took all these rulings regarding divorce from the pre-Islamic era of ignorance (like only husband having the right to give divorce, the system of 3 Talaqs, Halala, Ila, Zihar etc.). All of them are not only extremely oppressive against the women, but they are also illogical and unnecessary. They became part of Islamic Sharia while no divine Allah is present above in the heavens, and Muhammad was making the revelation and Sharia rulings on his own. Thus, we see the human errors and influence of the era of ignorance in these Islamic rulings.
Contrary to women, the Muslim men can divorce their wives even more easily than the western men and they don't even have to go to the court for it.
