Hi,



I’ve been last time in many cities in morocco and I realised that more and more women are wearing the scarf ….all ages… even kids ….some of them in a traditional look but a lot of them in quite modern and colorful one…I’m wondering if this is the result of the new changes or a reaction against it ? are we afraid ? of what?

salam,

isn't surprising that with the modernation more than half of the girls wear the head scarf ?!....that doesn't mean wearing the scarf is oldfashioned but it wasn't like this before when the country was still very traditionel!....strange changes in our society!....

Ilhem2,

I would attribute this to the influence of arabic channels with the satellite dishes. We're having a heated debate on a similar subject next door.
Moroccan identity and culture is being overrun by a conservatism not really compatible with our tradition of tolerance and openness.
My personal opinion is that it is esthetically ugly, I'd much prefer the 7aïk or addal for the soussis, it gave women a sort of mysterious, charming look clearly identifiable with moroccan culture.

But in Casablanca for instance, in popular neighborhoods where social pressure makes girls have to wear a scarf, they turned it into a fashion attribute, it's so light that it doesn't hide anything and therefore can't be attacked for not wearing one at all.

Hi

The new generation wears scarf for different reason.

1- those who wear it to get married, if someone fall for it.
2- some just to avoid men will let them free, as you se in Morocco specialy casablanca is very difficult for a girl to walk around with our beeing followed or desturbed by someone. is very sad u can be with a female family member and still someone try to hit on her.

3- for religion matter.
4- some wear it to attract Golf people, actualy that attract those low life priks from golf. that way you see lot of girls in club with khaligi clothing and in cafe on a day, hijab and transparent 3ibaya and make up..

any way allah yaster.

Ilhem, why shall we be afraid of such trend? I think it is a positive step towards applying the requirements of Shari'aa. The head scarf in islam, according to Allah swt, is compulsory for each muslim woman. Allah swt made such wordly law to protect women from transgression and misguidance. When you walk in the street wearing the veil the number of harrassment and hassling decrease. Beauty is in the head covering not outside it.

At first, i dont kid when it comes to discussing such sensitive subjects. Before head-covering came to be a personal-choice, God so directed in the Glorious Quran. It is not me who said such a thing, but Allah swt. Then if you object women to wear the Hijab this means you object God's decree. Just to be clear, i dont agree with hands cutting and severe public punishements though the Quran is very clear about that. You know brother that the laws of Shari'aa and Sunaa is an extension of the Quran, so what is said in the two former books cant be excluded. If we agree on this, then you should agree on the Hijab case.

almond01,

It is still subject to debate whether or not the hijab is compulsory, the jury is still out.
And Yes, I object to Moroccan women being subjected and having to bow to eastern conservatism. Our women have never wore that piece of cloth until very recently.
For the record, I also object to the chariaa being applied, it's outdated, it's not of this time, it has no place in a country like ours.

We're moving towards a democratic state where the law of men not divine law applies, not doing so would be going counterclockwise historically speaking.
Religion is a private matter, you can have your faith and not impose it on others, the chariaa does not allow that.

Give me one country where applying the chariaa has created a stable, harmonious, developped nation ?
I can't find any.
Muslims should start looking forward not looking in the rearview mirror and lamenting about great we were. It's insane and it is why we're limping where the west is sprinting.
The hijab is just a symptom of that mentality.

Assalam Alaikom


I respect your view though you have mentioned many fallacies.


Morocco brother is an Islamic country from the ancient time and your claim that the veil has been worn just recently is a great error. How could people say such things? Though Islam is a worlwide religion practiced throughout varying Madahib, they have the same foundation. Morocco which is known as following the Maliki Madhab does not need to import Islam from other countries. We have El hamdullah our scholars whom we respect and we ask Allah swt to give them strenght and steadfastness.


Following the teachings of Islam and the footsteps of Mohammed (pbuh) has never been a token of backwardness brother. We are proud as hell to be part of the Islamic world, and if you are enough aware of what the Quran had brought you would understand what iam saying. God our makeer created the universe and bestowed on us many blessings; the least we can do in return is to worship HIM through thick and thin.

What Democracy are you talking about? Are you telling me to drop my Islam and its instructions to follow your democracy. Who would recompensate my wordly deeds? The West's materialitic permissive society !!! Islam from 14 centuries has provided fair rules for all mankind; jutsice, women and men has to be treated on equal footing, the younger should take care of the elder, banned fornication ( pre-marital sexual affairs), etc... these laws brother havent been adopted but lately by the West which you greatify alot. For instance, democracy has been stated in many ways in the Quran like in the Shura verse : " Wa Amruh'um Shuura BaynaH'um". Like these teachings came in a time the West was in the Dark Age sunk into transgression, filt, and mislead.


Dont mix up things and associate them wrongly. If the Islamic or the Arab world is in a state of undevelopment, it is not because of Islam or whatever. Just people in a position of weakness who would say so. Islam is a strong faith and those who follow this faith can never be defeated. Allah swt say in the Quran: " In tansu'ru llaha Yansurk'um '. How could we progress if we are guided by the wisphers of the Shaytan?


For an answer to your question if there are any islamic countries who live in peace and security. Morocco is a prime example besides to many other countries. You know whers the main problem? Our leaders !!!!! When you have comptetent, righteous, righ-minded leaders who dont take advantange of their nations, giving priority to their own benefits, then we would be always lagging behind.


All in all, our BIG flaw is that we continue putting the blame on Islam, how its laws are backward, and we forget that we are just lying on ourselves. We make scapegoats to satisfy the Other, let-you-not-forget that is We who has created the Other.


Allah Knows Best

almond01,

Nope, sorry, the veil has been worn throughout the cities only since the beginning of the 90's, I can guarantee you that at least for Casablanca that I know very well. As I said earlier, older women wore enngab, in rural areas women wore a 7aïk ou addal.
The hijab as we see it now, is not a moroccan tradition, it is indeed an import due to the influence of satellite channels polluting our culture.

As for the rest, we are so much opposed that we'll agree to disagree, I believe in more than just religion as a source of knowledge, you seem to draw everything from the Quran, I don't.
Religion is a matter of faith, knowledge is a matter of science, so you see that we'll never agree.

Dear Chelhman
The complexity of the world makes people hate freedom and particularly the freedom of thinking.
In trying to understand the meaning of life, idividuals need to work hard through education, reading, thinking reading.....dicussing in an open and free way. Each individual should educate himself and find the tools and the loops to analyse and understand his environment etc...These continuous processes of learning and educating ourselfs are very hard but make us work hard through the whole life. You may make great finding and leave this khowledge to your kids and the generation to come. The transmission of khowledge and curiosity to the next generation is at the heart of each progress.
From the 8 to the 14th century Islam was growing as new religion, during this period many or most of the ideas were open to discussion. The message of mohammed during this period was still open to discussions involving muslims , jews christians etc.... a lot of intellecual efforts leading to progress not only in theology but in sciences etc..... Ibn Rushd did not succeed in imposing the freedom of thought. This school which was tolerant and see every khowledge as dynamical. Even the notion of god was open to discussion. Belief and logic...etc.....So this glorious period which many muslims refer to was a period where people were free to think and discuss every thing. Coran which was not written in real time but lately collected by many individuals (mostly men, women were out of business) was still a matter of debate. The Khalifates who saw a danger in following the school of free thought, decided to stop the ongoing brain storming of Ibn Rushd and his followers (Luther of Islam) and decided for the malekite school. The truth is in Coran, Basta.....Actually many muslims love this simple solution and hate freedom of thinking and freedom simply. They love to be hostages since they can sleep by saying all the work has been already done. We are here to accomplish just our biological duties.. knowledge is static.....

Dear Chelham,

thanks for your comment that needs some clarification.

We, you and I, have the responsibility now to be more pragmatic and clear in our actions.
We need the real Islam, peacefull Islam, the Islam that have the power to convince by legal way.


Never forget that we have the best heritage, and we have to respect that heritage:

We have invented the human civilization, we have invented the spirit of the scientific method.

We have invented 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9. The most vital ingredient for this High Tech Civilization.

Let's return to our values, respect and work hard for the prosperity of human being ... Medicine is based on Islamic reseach that have been conducted at the early stage of his history ...

Islam is for everybody, any free human can be a muslim, and he will be free and have right to do it accordingly to his beleive.

We dont need a kind of Islam that belong to some people that decide a kind of way to be a muslim.

Welcome to all human being. Peace and Love. Salam wa Almawadda wa Rahmma.

What's unfortunate is that he still is shunned. Ibn Rushd and his work should be taught in high schools all over Morocco. This will not only help our kids to have a critical thinking but also reminds them of their history. Someday may be...

HI krim
Ibn rushed was in andalous when the islamic world was gouverne by Khalifa rashidyin. at this time Coran was already written.

Ibn rushd did base his study on Coran, Cause he knew everything about "Ossoul edine".
at this time lot of, madahib comes out. so it was very important for the khalifa to stop that and to make them know that all the answer is in Coran. "AND IT´S TRUE"

for chelhman:

to be educated, scientict..ETC and believe in what ever you want, but if you dont believe in Allah and his profete SWS you just wasting your time studing.

I do believe in science..but u will not always find you answers in science. sometime you have to return to Coran and take it the way it ´s written.

We should be happy to have something to return to, when real science can give os all the answers.

for Alhijab, islam said women should wear it, so wearing it pakastani, khaligi, soussi, doukali or rifi way they just have to cover there hair..that all..how!! it doesn´t matter.

from your writting i can see, u are more close to the west..so we will never agree.
we just have to respect each others point of view and believes.

3washer mabrouka to u all..

PS. Wearing scarf never been a step back, is a step forward. I admire any girl, women that wear it by believe.

If the scarves were the mirror of somebody's good virtue and principles, Muslims would be the perfect human beings on earth. The issue is much deeper than the scarves, the issue has to do with practicing Islam in the light of modernity, it has nothing to do with the west in my opinion, flying a plane is not a "western" thing but a "modern" thing. Judaism and Christianity are older and more traditionalist religions with rules that are more rigid, much more than Islam but somehow, they found a way to conciliate between their religion and the century they live in. I believe Islam is living its dark period and will come out of it stronger exactly like Christianity lived through the crusades and the inquisition. It's a matter of a couple hundred years... Nothing shocking smiling smiley

I thought you are aware of what you are writing down instead of filling up the lines. Where on earth have you read or heard about some1 not working-hard to earn his/her living? How could a breadwinner feed and support his/her family without stress? Even thiefs and shoplifters make an effort to live.

Dear Aziz
I think you misunderstand my message. Coran was not written in real time. This means written while the prophete mohammed still in life. The writing and collection was done after his death by his followers. Read the "history of the arab people by Albert Hourani". Should we trust that this work reflect the authentic message of the prophete. In addition Ibn Rushd who was a strong believer in the message of Mohammed did try to use greek philosophy, rationality in order to find a commun ground. He was a smart muslim who made use of his brain by asking critical questions.
take care

Hi chelhmen,

you may be right regarding the influence of the Arabic channels on our girls but I found the new hijab ( 3abaya or the modern look ) far away from our traditional Moroccan style confirming the problem our “ lost “ identity.... secondly I found the whole thing quite exaggerating…we always were good Muslims without shouting telling it to everyone …it looks like we became very conservative….. the truth is that we’ve never been modern like now ….such a controversy….sometimes I ask myself what the Moroccans really want?


Hi Aziz,

I don’t agree when you said “… it’s difficult for a girl to walk without being followed or disturbed..” you just need to go to Ma’arif or la cote in casa you will see how free are our girls and how open-minded are our boys ….. besides, if a girl is properly dressed no one will touch her….however it could be very possible that some girls put the hijab to get married or indeed to attract the golf people (I’v seen it with my own eyes in la corniche ) which shows perfectly that we are not that religious that seems to be…again people are using the religion for bad attention or at least for not religious matters…..


Dear Almot,

I’ve read all your messages and with all respect I agree with most what chelhmen said …..we really need to be careful this time to get our country out of the misery …the religion is good but it’s still should not be mixed with the state and the economy ….I’m not saying we should forget our religion and traditions ….what I’m saying is we need to make the difference ……matters such as education, health , employment ….etc should be our first priority….the religion should remain a private thing like in all civilized countries as long as it's still respected in all aspects of the society….I understand your proud of our religion but we always were so ….. sadly it didn’t help to improve the situation …..we need to solve effectively our economical and social problems….each time a matter is discussed it turn up discussing the religion….. we will never move on…… the real Islam is in the heart, the behavior and the attention not in the way how people look…..

Brother almond01,

thanks for your replay, I appreciate your way of reviewing a writing.


For the used word "stress", it's not related to "fatigue".

A work is not only physically demanding but stressful too.

Great worry caused by a difficult situation, or something which causes this condition:
People under a lot of stress may experience headaches, MAJOR pains and sleeping difficulties.

Islam, as a religion of peace of mind and soul, is a very effective for combating stress.


Islam is a mercy. Islam is a love. Islam is a peace.

What are you talking about?

If you dont go in favor with wearing the hijab then it is your personal choice that we respect toooo much, but dont go that far claiming that the veil is an instruction new to our soceity. I really dont know what kind of messages are you trying to give out? you sound very ingnorant of so many facts. What have you against conservative peeps? At least they are more honorable and pious than permissive ones.

Are you calling for modernism at the expense of Moroccan's families' disintergration? Are you satisfied of the prevalent amrolas prevailing our brothers and sisters? This is not modernism but backwardness at the highest level. I dont call people to become strict and introverted, but rather open-minded in a good-manner. You said "we have never been modern like now", what do you mean? Girls and boys sharing intimacies in public, girls walking around half-naked, boys smoking in front of their parents, girls entering home till late hrs at night without being asked where they were or with whom they were escorted!! Where from this curse/plague has come from? Have you never asked yourself this Q? Well the answer is very simple.


Our guys are simply westernized gagging after bad habits than good ones. Even some foreigners when they come over here, they are struck of the deteriorating and degregading morals the moroccan society has become part of. By saying this, am not obligating wearing the scarf on anyone because it is well stated in the Quran that NO compulsion in Islam, but the least of things people shoudnt deny such heavenly law.


Azizi,

I don’t agree when you said “… it’s difficult for a girl to walk without being followed or disturbed..” you just need to go to Ma’arif or la cote in casa you will see how free are our girls and how open-minded are our boys ….. besides, if a girl is properly dressed no one will touch her….however it could be very possible that some girls put the hijab to get married or indeed to attract the golf people (I’v seen it with my own eyes in la corniche ) which shows perfectly that we are not that religious that seems to be…again people are using the religion for bad attention or at least for not religious matters…..

I go with Azizi, and i object the way you look at things ilhem. Please dont mix up things !!!

You should differentiate between well-bred girls and ill ones, and i am not generalizing here of course. Let me give you one example, when you see a girl walking in the street wearing a tight jeans and a top, swinging right and left. This girl knows she is a part of a society which respects its traditions, culture and religion, so why the need of such behaviour? By contrast, when you see a girl respecting herself, wearing loose clothes ( not even the hijab ) she becomes far from the risk of being threathned, hassled, or exposed to sexually-oriened speech.


You mentioned the example of those girls wearing Aabayat, are these chicks a good example? The majority of them are slappers. I myself encountred an incident that happened in front of my eyes in the cyber coffee 3 years ago when a girl who was sitting chit-chatting with a guy from the Gulf stood up in front of the camera and started exhibiting her body, let alone those who are in their homes. This is the worst thing one can think of.


In brief, to be modernized is not necessarily how do you look, but more importantly what modern innovative clean thoughts your mind is full of.



Dear Almot,

I’ve read all your messages and with all respect I agree with most what chelhmen said …..we really need to be careful this time to get our country out of the misery …the religion is good but it’s still should not be mixed with the state and the economy ….I’m not saying we should forget our religion and traditions ….what I’m saying is we need to make the difference ……matters such as education, health , employment ….etc should be our first priority….the religion should remain a private thing like in all civilized countries as long as it's still respected in all aspects of the society….I understand your proud of our religion but we always were so ….. sadly it didn’t help to improve the situation …..we need to solve effectively our economical and social problems….each time a matter is discussed it turn up discussing the religion….. we will never move on…… the real Islam is in the heart, the behavior and the attention not in the way how people look…..


I have read your text 4 times and i have come to the conclusion that you find so many difficulties connecting your ideas. You are at a loss. What the improvement of the economy's wheel has to do with religion? How can you make religion second, giving advantange to the wordly life? Dont forget we are not ever-lasting in this planet, our life is just temporary. Just dont come up with things at random and turn into deductions. Please BACK UP you arguments with proofs?


Everytime you talk about civilization and the West. Dont forget at one time the Islamic world were more prosperous without making religion subordinate. I agree the West has worked-hard to achieve welfare and development but unfortunately this has happened whilst losing many values.


I wouldnt back down and give concessions to trackback. Alhamdullah the teachings of Islam has provided us with loads of rules how to lead a regular happy life, but due to some persons , who misuse this treasure and apparently lack enuff information and guidance, they get easily drifted by the flow.
