I am a Muslimah and I’m not oppressed

As a Muslimah I need to wear my hijab, to feel protected. As a Muslimah who wears her hijab, not as a sign of oppression but as a sign of liberation. As a Muslimah who wears a hijab not as  sign of oppression but as a sign of obedience to Allah subhana wa talah I am just stricken with so much anger, to read and see what hijab, Islam and women have become in the eyes of men. Rape is not about dress, legs, cleavage or sex is about control, humiliation. If I need to wear my hijab and not be rape I will do so as a sign of obedience to Allah talah,  even if I have to wear a paper bag over my head is ok.

Islam liberated me of all oppression, gave me the right to inherit, gave me the right to vote, gave me the right to work and keep my money and gave me the right to divorce. And all these wonderful things were given to me before American and European women knew what was to work,vote and inheritance. IN YOUR FACE!

Islam has done more for women than all the politicians in the world.  I’m liberated and as a  Muslimah I choose to wear hijab for honor and obedience to my Lord
