Haram For Women:Haram things for Women in Islam

  • (Women) Showing hair or skin in public.
  • (Women) Talking to another man, other than husband, indeed talking in front of a “Mehram” (Father, Husband, Brother, or Son) is OK if it’s necessary in cases like; the Non-Meh-ram Men is a “ta-bib” (Doctor), Qazi (Judge), “Layer”, and etc. If a scenario occurs where a Women got no Meh-ram in her life, still she is allowed to talk to such responsible folks, in terms of necessities like illness, some Law suite or etc.

Meanwhile, co-education system and open parties combining Male and females enjoying together are not allowed in Islam.

At the end Islam is the religion of piece so, this is what told by “Allah SWT” by his last messenger “Prophet Mohammad PBUH”, who not only preached us by “Hadiths” and “Quran” and it’s “Holy Verses”; but he “Mohammad PB UH” won his follower’s hearts by implementing the Islam’s complete code of life on his own life.

Please don’t procrastinate Islam, by the shameless acts of some double faced people. Be realistic and get a brief study of Islam as a complete code of life; if you can’t get a thorough study of Islam, let us know we will provide you with some authentic reading material to get your concept clear regarding what exactly Islam is. And how it provides a complete code of life?. How Islam provides extra privileges to a Women then previous religions before Islam provided to its feminine societies.

An important (Note) for Muslims, a true Muslim is the one who’s life is a lesson for the non-believers, in terms of fulfilling all those preaching of Islam by “Muhammad PBUH” that is handed to us in shape of “Hadiath” (Sayings of “Muslims last prophet Muhammad”) and “The Holy Quran”. Teach your children Islam’s true practices, answer their childish questions regarding Islamic knowledge and Islamic History. So that they grow up being a true Muslim while practising the real Islam by following “Quran’s preaching”. Let them know how praying 5 times a day will connect them with “ALLAH Taalah”. Let them know that how they can ask Allah for their any Halal needs while praying 5 times daily prayers. Make them habitual to “Quran recitation with Tafseer” at least for 30 minutes in a day, so that they come to be true believers. Get them the best “Quran teacher” who will make them adopt, Islamic ethics for spending a true believer’s life. Let them know that “Quran is the only guide book for a Muslim, to get a way of spending a worthier life”.

At last be a believer so that the community around you, thinks at least once regarding “What they assumed Islam as, and what actually Islam is”. Be the one to get frustrated American youth adopting, “An ideal code of Life in the shape of Islam”.

Mohammad SAW didn’t turned US in Islam by “Jihad”, indeed “Life of the Last Prophet of Islam” turned us being a real human who now really knows it, that how to keep his Queen (Wife, the most precious gift by Allah to a true Muslim man) safe and sound from the bad world, while fulfilling all her “Halal” needs with affection and love.

Comments from Muslim sisters will really be appreciated, that what you feel being a Muslim wife?
