AS SALAMU ALAIKUM WA RAHMATULLAHI WA BARAKATUH.

How can you call yourself a Muslim, when you strut down a runaway in a bikini? Subhana Allah, what are we doing to our Ummah? How can one honestly say we are Muslim, when the Qur’an and the Sunnah tell us different.
In the Qur’an Surah An-Noor,ayah 31 says: “And tell the believing woman too lower the gaze and protect their private parts and not to show off their adornments except for that which is apparent…
And the Surah continues telling us that our adornments should be only seen by our husbands, fathers, husband’s fathers..(men which the woman can not marry)
In Surah Al-Ahzab, ayah 59 Allah Aza wa Ajal tell us; : O Prophet! Tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to draw their cloaks (veils) all over their bodies. That will be better that they should be known ( as respectable women) so as not to be annoyed. And Allah is Ever Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.”
How can anyone with an ounce of respect and modesty consider themselves Muslim making such statements in front of millions.

Where do we as a community draw the line? How can we be portrait in such a matter? I don’t feel any kind of pride, I just feel ashamed and bother with such attitude. I feel rob of my identity as a Muslim woman. Just like the men who have to dress like a Muslimah to kill, this young woman is making Islam a joke. What kind of example can she be for our daughters, who struggle every day with the fact that they are ridicule, in some counties not allowed to wear a head scarf and men dressing like us in order to kill and rob.
And what about her comment aboutbirth control;
During the interview part, Fakih was asked whether she thought birth control should be paid for by health insurance, and she said she believed it should because it’s costly
Our Ummah has to stand strong and raise your voices. My brothers and sisters from Dearborn, Michigan, is this acceptable to you? We have a voice, and we should be heard.
