Poem on hijab

A mere piece of clothing has been creating turmoil all around the world. I cant help but wonder, what threat does this simple way of dress pose to those who oppose it...and what does hijab mean to women?

Poem on hijab

Postby abuali » 23 Nov 2004, 01:53

because my head is covered,
my hair you cannot see,
you stare and think "its such a shame",
"how bad her life must be".
you cannot see what is inside,
my heart is warm and full,
but you cannot imagine that,
cause im not dressed so "cool",
but as your staring at me so,
with pain in your eyes,
i stare back and feel so sad,
you've been told so many lies.
you do not know you're worth so much,
your body you should hide,
instead of being judged by looks,
they should judge by whats inside.
but, you see, its hard to do,
when you let so much hang out,
boys just see your sex appeal,
and not what your about,
they do not care about your smarts,
or what schooling you have had,
they do not treat you with respect,
and to me this is so sad.
see, i have seen with my own eyes
the way mens opinions change,
when you cover your body,suddenly,
the difference is quite strange.
their eyes begin to flutter
for they know not what to do,
they realize you respect yourself,
so they MUST have respect for you!

Assalamun alaykum,
I have another one. Here it goes.......

What do you see when you look at me?
Do you see someone limited, or someone free? All some people can do is just look and stare
Simply because they cannot see my hair.

Others think I am controlled and un-educated
They think that I am limited and not liberated.

They are so thankful that they are not me
Because they would like to remain 'free'

Well, free isn't exactly the word I would've used
Describing women who are cheated on and abused.

They think that I do not have opinions or a voice
They think that being hooded isn't my choice.

They think that the hood makes me look caged
That my husband or dad is totally outraged.

All they can do is look at me in fear
And in my eye there is a tear.

Not because I have been stared at or made fun of,
But because people are ignoring the One up above.

Maybe the guys won't think I am a cutie!
But at least I am filled with more inner beauty.

We have the strength to do what we think is right
Even if it means putting up a life long fight.

You see, we are not controlled by a mini skirt and tight shirt
We are given respect, and never treated like dirt.

So, when people ask you how you feel about the hood?
Sum it up by saying, 'baby, it's wonderful and good

Ahsanth!
