Dear Liberal Feminists: The Hijab is Not Empowering

I am in Baghdad right now and I have my back to the wall as I type. I am slowly moving my laptop closer to my chest and looking around to make sure nobody else sees what I am writing. I am Iraqi. I am a woman. I am Christian. And I am not a hijabi.

Iraq, much like Iran, used to be a more secular place. The Saddam regime was brutal, but he kept Islamism in the country under control until the end when he sensed his loss of power and began turning to Islam. That is what regimes here usually do.

Liberal feminists will tell you the hijab was a response to the West. It is a defiant act against imperialism! It’s not. I am here and I promise you, the hijab is not empowering.

First, not all Iraqis are Muslim. If Islam is what unites us against imperialism, then where does that leave me? Subjugated. As a Christian and as a woman.

Second, and more importantly, women cannot reclaim our bodies by falling beneath another form of hegemony. “We do not want to submit to the Western men, and therefore we submit to the Arab men” is hardly a step forward.

Let me clarify: I do not want the Western armies in Iraq. They rape, torture, and kill Iraqi women and attempt to steal our limited resources for themselves. I do not, however, think abuse by Arab men is somehow a step in the right direction.

When Saddam fell, Iraqi men quickly searched for power. Those who did not find it are doing what emasculated men always do. They are practicing power over the women in their families.

I find it disgusting but expected that women’s clothing is always inspected. Whatever we wear, it is always the wrong thing for some people. I am not here to tell women what to wear. I am trying to dissect the idea that the hijab is empowering especially here in the Middle East.

In Iraq and in every other Middle Eastern country where the hijab is not required by law, (it is required in Iran and more extremely in Saudi Arabia), there are two specific demographics I have noticed wearing it:
1. Poor, uneducated women
2. The family members of Islamic leaders

I will focus on the first of these before moving on to the second. It is my experience that in almost every country in the world, poor and uneducated people are the most performative in their religion. When I lived in Spain, this was the case. The poor old women who walked along the beach were more devoted to their Christianity than I, a Christian from a place where my family was persecuted for it, ever was.

But both my parents are professors in biology and studied when Baghdad was the best place in the Middle East to study. None of my friends here, who are mostly Muslim, cover their hair. They come from educated families. They do not need to lean on religion.

For poor women, this is different. They are not likely to receive an education and understand from a young age they will need to depend on a husband or be a burden to the family. They often do not have jobs so if there is abuse in the household they are trapped. They have to follow the rules of men to survive, more than I do.

If these woman do not cover from a young age, they will not find a good husband. Men are close-minded and possessive and they cannot deal with a possibility other men saw such “intimate” parts of THEIR wife.

Their families pressure them to follow these rules. An uncovered woman will bring shame to the family first by revealing herself and then by not finding a good husband to provide for her. They are pressured to cover as young as eight and nine years old. Can any person that young devote themselves to an outfit for life?

Street harassment is very common in Baghdad. The few times I have been harassed when outside with hijabi women, they have blamed me for not covering. “I am Christian” I will say. “The men know that” is usually their response. The culture is so toxic that women with the hijab believe they are superior to those without it.

But materially they are inferior and they know that. In almost every case, women who do not cover are wealthier, more educated, better-employed, less-dependent on men, and live materially better lives. So what do poor, uneducated women have? Religion. I really can’t blame them.

Religion is also used as a tool by the second group I mentioned, the Islamic leaders, to unite and control the masses. Sure, your family is starving and your babies are dying from preventable diseases. But what do I offer you? Eternal life in heaven as long as you do everything I tell you in the name of God.

This makes people feel included and gives them purpose. It also creates a hierarchy in society. When men are permitted and even encouraged to oppress the women in their lives, they are more likely to follow the leaders that allow this. It makes them feel powerful. Men, especially poor men, want to feel power over something or someone.

In this way, the hijab is empowering… but only for men. It strips power away from women. It represents a society moving backwards in many ways.

Many women will tell you they choose to wear the hijab or they wear it for Allah. Once you ask questions, you will find this is less true. In almost all cases, they began wearing it at a young age (and always under eighteen) and were pressured by family.

I am hypocritical because I too perform “feminine” things because of family or society pressure. I wear my hair long even though it bothers me and I wish I could shave it off because I do not want to face society’s judgment for doing that. But at least I realize the source of this contradiction.

Western liberal feminists who praise the hijab are forgetting about the rest of us. I am terrified of a day I live in a place where covering is the law. Iraq is my home and I don’t want to leave, but sometimes I think maybe I don’t belong here especially if something like my hair can get me killed.

In every country, we need to have a larger conversation about what women say we want and what we really want. We also need to realize the broken logic of “wanting” to do something because it pleases men.

Liberal feminists: I know it is scary for you to criticize the hijab because then you have to admit some of your personal choices are actually part of your effort to serve the patriarchy. We all need to face this fact because if we don’t, we cannot get any closer to liberating ourselves.

I wish some muslims would understand that islam is not only about halal vs. haram, its a way of life that revolves around goodness of the heart and having pure intentions, and that our mission in this life as muslims is not to solely put a hijab on our daughters and pray 5 times a day but to (simply) be a kind, righteous person who spreads peace, forgiveness, love, justice wherever we are

do y'all not realize that when you say wearing a hijaab is sexist you are literally the ones making it about men? hijaabis chose to cover as a display of devotion to Allah in the same way that Sikh men chose to wear a turban to show their devotion to their religion. why doesn’t anyone call that misandry? lmao y'all don’t even see the sexism in your dumb logic it’s so tiring. I really don’t see you guys as being incapable of understanding that a Muslim woman has agency of her own life, that she can feel liberated in her choice to be modest. just admit you hate Muslims man stop trying to defend your hate of brown women with feminism or egalitarian secularism y'all are boring

Sana has her ammunition, she could easily destroy Sara at any moment. She has Noora’s password too, she could easily spread all of those nasty messages from her email and let her take the fall. I don’t think she will, because she’s been there, she’s made that mistake. This is what I want to happen now. I want her faith to be what changes her mind, I want her faith to be what helps see her through this. Not Eva, or Chris, or Isak, or anyone else. I want Islam to be what guides her, to be what helps her make the right choices. It’s what we need to see. We need to see exactly how Sana’s faith is a positive thing that can influence her life for the better, not be continuously reminded of the ways in which it causes her to feel anguish or isolation.

anonymous asked:

do u know any lgbt arab movies u can recommend ?

This list is of queer middle eastern films that include queer arab films

Circumstance (2011) - film explores love and sexual rebellion between two women under the watchful eye of the government and through family dynamics in modern day Iran.

Caramel (2007) - “a beauty salon in Beirut is a safe haven for five women in this Lebanese romantic comedy. Follows the love lives of five Lebanese women, one of them is the stylist Rima who does not know how to handle her attraction to a female client.

Mondial 2010 (2014) - “is a film on love and place. A Lebanese gay couple decides to take a road trip to Ramallah. The film is recorded with their camera as they chronicle their journey. The viewers are invited through the couple’s conversations into the universe of a fading city.” In reality Lebanese cannot drive to Ramallah as they are forbidden into Israel and this plays with the significance of a same-sex relationship in the Middle East and what it means to be a queer Middle Eastern.

Lola and Billy the Kid (1999) - “Murat, the youngest son of a conservative Turkish family, is struggling with his sexuality as well as with the demands of his patriarchal older brother. When Murat meets with Lola – his estranged brother who now is a drag queen – and her macho Turkish lover, Billy the Kid, he finds himself drawn into a dangerous new world. 

Oriented (2015) - feature documentary that follows the lives of three gay Palestinian friends confronting their national and sexual identity in Tel Aviv.

Fifi Howls From Happiness (2014) - “I will tell you my life story so that no idiot will write my biography the way it suits them,” says legendary gay Iranian artist Bahman Mohassess in this documentary about his life. 

A Jihad For Love (2007) - feature documentary to explore the complex global intersections between Islam and homosexuality. This movie focuses on Islam in multiple regions of the world rather than just the Middle East.

Mixed Kebab (2012) - centers around a TurkisH character and talks about the struggles of being a gay poc in a conservative Muslim household in a western country and having to defy middle eastern expectations of you. Best of all, the ending is a happy one!

I Say Dust (2015) - “Two Arab-American women in New York City fall in love, argue home and identity, engage in a chess battle, and express themselves through the power of the spoken word. 'I Say Dust’ explores poetry in cinema through the story of Hal, a poet belonging to the Palestinian diaspora in NYC, who meets Moun, a free-spirited chess boards sales girl. Their brief love affair challenges their understanding of what makes home.”

Note: There are more LGBT films produced and directed by Israelis but I don’t recommend them. They pinkwash Israel’s violent acts towards Palestinians by diverting your attention and targeting the queer audience, in specific, to claims that Israel supports LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and queer) rights. 

The films usually depict a Palestinian struggling with their sexuality and their community’s rejection of their identity and a “free” Israeli that fall in love and Tel Aviv is the safe haven for their love. Basically using representation that Arabs are savage and Israelis are here to free us. 

Truth is there is no rainbow bedazzled hole in the Israeli West Bank Wall that allows you a free access to ‘freedom’ if your ass is queer. When they bomb Gaza they are bombing Palestinian including queers one. Besides the fact that they are killing us, this just shows their LGBTQ rights  (all their human rights) are just a show to divert your attention and this is effectively done through media including movies. This is why I do not recommend Israeli queer films depicting the Middle East.

This sign was placed on the edge of the main stage at Outside the Frame: Queers for Palestine Film Festival in San Francisco 

The fact that Sana hasn’t been able to pray yet without being interrupted is such a real representation of how Islam, and other non-western and ‘non-traditional’ religions, are still viewed in society today. The fact that she hasn’t been able to pray in peace is such a subtle way of showing us how a lot of the time, western society doesn’t want people like Sana to participate in her own religion, to embrace her own culture. The fact that I’ve seen so many people who watch this show say things like ‘let Sana pray in peace’ fills me with so much hope that this type of thinking will make its way into real life situations that people are confronted with. This season has done and shown us so much already, it has opened so many doors and minds and I’m so ready for Sana to change the world.

Yousana's Endgame Symbolism

This is quite a long analytical post so bear with me. If you read the whole thing, thanks and also, I commend you. Below is my analysis on the idea of fate and all the symbolism that makes Yousana, endgame.

Swan:

This animal has different meanings but for the most part it is the symbol of beauty, strength and loyalty.

Swans are associated with fidelity, loyalty in marriage, and monogamy, because they mate for life. Everlasting love.

They are also associated with transformation of something into something beautiful.

Blue Scillas:

The Scillas mean a couple of things: constancy (the quality of being faithful and dependable, and also the quality of enduring or being permanent) and it is also associated of forgiving and forgetting.

Yousef gives these flowers to Sana, as a symbol of his enduring and faithful love for her). Sana keeps these flowers way past their lifetime, by her bed. She forgives Yousef for kissing Noora, and forgets it too.

Carrots:

The symbol of fertility and lust. It is also seen as a symbol of spiritual nourishment.

This season the carrots symbolize her desire and love for Yousef. Initially, Sana is drawn to Yousef only physically and seeks to appeal to him physically as well. During Inshallah, she eats the carrot, delicately, while staring at Yousef. It’s very sexually suggestive at first (lust). But then, in the kitchen, it evolves into something more profound.

The carrots bring them together, and are what start the true spiritual connection between the two.

We see carrots throughout the season. They are a representation of their spiritual connection and their attraction for each other. At one point, Noora chews on one, loudly and annoyingly. Then we see rotten carrots on the floor, when all seems lost. The carrots appear once again, except Sana is holding one, without doing anything with it. Finally, the carrots reappear in cooked form in their final date, and they both eat them happily, and at the same time; meaning their connection is complete and they have both accepted the fact that they love each other and want to be with each other in every way.

The Number 12:

This one has been sneakily thrown at us throughout the season. It’s been slightly more subtle than the others. The talk of 12 kids, “One dozen eggs” hanging in Sana’s kitchen, Yousef asking if he’s “12 or what?”

Now according to various sources, the number 12 is the symbol of cosmic order, completeness and perfection. Which is really what they both are, when they are together. They complement each other, and balance each other out.

Fate:

Finally, although this isn’t symbolic, the idea of fate, it is meant to be, it is written in the stars and if God wills it.

Throughout the season, every single thing points to Yousef. Everything Sana does, reads, hears, no matter what she does or how she tries to avoid it, points to Yousef. Somehow, “the roads she takes” lead to him.

This is seen very pointedly in a few scenes:

Fy Faen: Sana is standing alone, balloons blocking her face and view. As soon as Yousef stands in front of her, the balloons magically move out of her way, giving her full view of his face.

I Feel It Coming: She’s praying, and at that moment the music plays. She walks out of her room and right into Yousef. Elias could’ve been there with him, or she could’ve entered through the bookcase room where Elias was. But no. Right into Yousef.

Inshallah: The most obvious one. Sana’s mom asks Sana about who will feed her children, and if she’s going to let them starve. Her response: my husband will do the cooking. “Inshallah”. And then Allah wills it, and minutes later, Yousef walks in and shows her how to peel carrots properly. How does he know? He cooks FOR CHILDREN at a kindergarten. It gives me chills whenever I think about it.

Unfriended: After finding out that Yousef isn’t Muslim, she decides to unfriend him and move on. She researches ways to get over someone you love. The final shot lingers on the final rule of getting over someone you love: Remember, There Isn’t Just One Person Out There For You.

Det Beste Fra Islam: After following the rules listed in the article, she goes to Grønland, to meet the next love of her life. A cute, good Muslim boy. As fate would have it though, Elias somehow ends up getting wasted and she ends up spending her evening with Yousef instead.

Spiller Alene: She’s throwing the ball, trying to score. At some point the ball bounces back, past her, as if pushed by a mysterious force,and lands directly at Yousef’s feet.

Kitchen Talk: Momma Bakkoush discovers that it is Yousef, the one Sana loves. She doesn’t dissuade her from pursuing something with him explicitly, but goes on to list all the ways Yousef isn’t good for her and explains exactly what she needs in a husband.

Maghrib: So far, her mom has given her the most logical explanation ever as to why her and Yousef would never work, and Sana is strong in her decision to forget him, because by all logic, it makes absolute sense. She says “I’ll meet other soulmates in the summer”. Then…Allah wills it once again, while she’s praying, and I feel It Coming starts playing. At the most perfect time. Everything points to Yousef.

To top it off, Yousef, again as if invoked by Sana’s mom’s words, goes on and demonstrates that he is the one for Sana, and shows her, inadvertently, that he’s exactly the man Momma Bakkoush wants Sana to marry.

The most beautiful part of this season has been the inevitability of Yousef and Sana as a couple, as life partners, and their love story. The mystical nature of their relationship and the forces that keep bringing them together. You just know they will end up together forever. There’s no doubt about it. It is beautiful and I’m glad Skam went there.

P.S - The songs: This is the only season where songs have been played more than once, in a season. Straumnes, 5 times; Into The Woods, twice. I Feel It Coming, twice. Again, just continuing with the pattern of constancy… There it is.

I got this ask a few days ago and I’ve been thinking about it because something in the wording bothered me. Then I realized what it was and fixed it.

It’s not that it’s Muslim men abusing women. It doesn’t matter why men are abusing women.

This is not a problem unique to Islam.
This is a problem in every country. I don’t really care what religion the man is or why he’s doing it. He should stop and she is free to live her life freely in a way that doesn’t harm others and it doesn’t matter if she chooses religious attire or not.

*edit and a note* I’m not going to respond to comments on posts. Only reblogs. This isn’t my main tumblr and I don’t want to comment with my personal account.
الإسلام

Islam has taught me to keep going, no matter what. Islam helped me realise that there is always hope, no matter what, that there will always be light at the end of the tunnel. Islam taught me the elegance within modesty and gave me the satisfaction in covering. Islam showed me the beauty in having a connection with God. Islam demonstrated to me that to be truly submissive to God is rewarding. Islam showed me how to swim through life’s storms and to be patient enough to wait for the calm. Islam taught me to be fair to every living soul, be it an ant or a human. Islam presented to me a new life - the best way of living life.

While this Ramadan, you make a list of things you want to ask from Him, please also remember every single person who has benefited you in any way, whether they are a part of your life or not. In fact, even the people that have wronged you. Just pray for them. You will be granted the best kind of peace in your heart.

Ramadan | 2017

May this month bring you all an abundance of blessings. May you all be kept under the protection and care of Allah. May all your prayers, fasts, and duas be accepted by Allah. May you all be rewarded for every single good deed carried out. May forgiveness be granted to you all. May this month bring you closer to Allah. For those whose hearts are torn, may you find peace and tranquility during this month. For those who will be spending it with loved ones, may you always be surrounded by those who love you for the sake of Allah. For those who may be alone this Ramadan, may Allah surround you with people who help brighten your path and have your best interests at heart. For those who are struggling in any way, verily with hardship comes relief, may your burdens be lightened. May this holy month of Ramadan chase away the depression and misery that is getting the best out of you. For those who are reverts, may Allah make the path ahead of you easier and illuminated.

May you all always be smiling. May Allah bless you all with happiness and a heart at ease. May Allah always guide you all throughout your journey in life and may we all meet in Jannah insha’Allah. Ameen. 

This is a really beautiful story about the hijab and da'wah so you need to read this and reflect. About five or six years ago, I got introduced to an amazing sister from Taiwan. She miraculously accepted Islam many years ago however I want to share one of the stories of how she changed someone’s life without knowing.

She told me that she lived on the outskirts of Vienna so about two times a week, she’d catch the train into the city in order to go shopping and buy things for her home. One day, she went to a gathering and an Austrian woman who she did not recognise saw her and said, “IT’S YOU! IT’S YOU! IT’S YOU!” - everyone was extremely confused so the Taiwanese sister looked at her and said, “Me? We don’t each-other? I think you’ve mistaken me for someone else?”

The Austrian woman got extremely emotional and said, “No, It is you! I saw you on the train for 2 years. I saw the way you wore your hijab and I saw how dignified and beautiful you were. I saw how much modesty and self honour you possessed. I saw how great and elevated your morals were, and something triggered into my heart that I must learn about your way of life. I looked up Hijab and found Islam. I looked up Islam and found God. I fell in love with this religion so I decided to accepted Islam!’

This is the essence of true da'wah - Lips don’t need to move because character talks. Tongues don’t have to articulate because our morals translate the secrets of the hearts. We don’t have to give a thousands lectures because our soul carry a million realities. Sisters, Allah honoured you with the Hijab. He raised you above creation. He made you inheritors of Lady Fatimah al-Zahra and the noble wives of the Prophet ﷺ. If you embody their teachings and remain steadfast with their modesty and purity, Allah will show you miracles and he will make you a means to changing lives. The people of this world are thirsty for La-ilaha-ila-Allah, but only those who love and connect themselves to the Prophet ﷺ who shall distribute al-Kawthar can quench the thirst of humanity.
