The first known Islamic head scarf was created during the 7th century. At that time, a famous Egyptian doctor and scholar called Mufti Taqi Tufail al Shibharr had introduced the first ever Islamic sexual dress code called the “Hattab”. This code dictated that both men and women who wore hijabs had to undergo a religious, cultural, and physical test before they could legally marry. Although Mufti Taqi is not commonly referred to as the father of the Islamic hijab, scholars note that he played a key role in the evolution of this traditional garment.
During the first century, the tradition of wearing hijabs arose as a defense against the socially unacceptable norms of sexual harassment. These norms included the demand that women cover their heads at all times during interaction with men. In many towns throughout the Middle East, women were subjected to a range of abuses including rape, sexual harassment, and battery. Despite these abuses, which included everything from verbal abuse to physical assault, women continued to wear Islamic head scarves to ensure their safety. As a result, a famous Egyptian doctor and scholar called Ahmed Bey El Ghriba wrote a well-known treatise called the ” Qur’an and Modern Life” in which he discussed the social implications of the Islamic practice of the hijabs.
While acknowledging that the motivation for wearing the Islamic clothing was primarily protection against sexual harassment, el kashef says that it also promoted the concept of beauty. According to him, a young Egyptian girl once told her father: “I am very beautiful because I am wearing an Islamic head scarf.” El Kashef notes that this story is unique in its reference to the veil as a factor that promotes beauty. However, he adds that this is a generalization and that other variables such as a woman’s beauty and her relationship to her family, her tribe, and to the community where she lives are also important factors in whether or not she will feel empowered to wear the Islamic headscarf.
There are two sides to every story, however. On one side are those who support the rights of women and criticize those who tolerate or encourage sexual harassment and abuse within the Muslim community. On the other side are those who argue that the hijabs have a dual meaning, and that they help protect women from physical harm but that they also promote beauty and sexual attraction among women. And in some cases, both sides may be right. The reason that there are different interpretations of the meaning of the Islamic head scarf is that they are tied to a number of factors that vary widely from one culture to another.
For example, in some parts of Egypt and the Arab world, the wearing of the Islamic veil is seen as a means of submission to God, while at the same time, the hijabs are considered to represent modesty and chastity. In addition, a woman’s clothing is also seen as a reflection of her status in society and family. If she shows her face and neck skin too freely, then she is seen as promiscuous and not truly married. On the other hand, a conservative family may view a Muslim woman in a long, black abaya as sexy and attractive – even though that may be in an exaggerated way.
In the United States, some consider the Islamic veil to be more of a symbol of culture and religion than a sign of Islamic morality. In general many people do not see the religion or cultural heritage of Islam as promoting gender equality. As such, the use of the Islamic veil does not promote either gender’s rights. However, this can vary by region, as certain areas have laws that mandate the veils for all women, while others only require it for married women or those with a high social status. The variation in law makes it important to consider where you live when considering an Islamic head scarf as a possible cultural or religious choice.
In some cultures, a woman must cover her face when outside of her home. In Egypt, women are required by law to wear an Islamic headscarf when engaging in public activities such as paying taxes or working outside the home. The use of a scarf is considered a symbol of modesty and respect for the religion and is therefore required for both Muslim women and those of the Christian faith. However, the Islamic religion does not dictate how women should act or what clothing they should wear. So, in Egypt, the question of whether or not women should wear a garment that covers their faces during sexual relations becomes a question of religious choice, not a question of societal morality.
While some argue that covering one’s face promotes modesty and allows women to defend themselves from sexual advances, the veil has another side. Some claim that it represents a symbol of the woman’s Submission to her husband. Although Islam does not require a woman to be covered in public, some scholars and preachers believe that the veil does not allow free speech because the veil covers the face. For this reason, some countries have made it illegal to wear the Islamic headscarf in private establishments such as cinemas and restaurants. However, the law is rarely enforced in Egypt or other Muslim countries, due to the fact that it is often used by both men and women in private spaces to express themselves and form their own opinions about religion and sex.
