An Englishman came to a Sheikh and asked: “Why is it not permissible in Islam for women to shake hands with a man? The Sheikh said: “Can you shake hands with Queen Elizabeth?” The man said: “Of course not, there are only certain people who can shake hands with Queen Elizabeth”. Sheikh replied: “Our women are queens and queens do not shake hands with strange men”.
Then the man asked the Sheikh: “Why do your girls cover up their body and hair?” The Sheikh smiled and got two sweets (candies), he opened the first one and kept the other one closed. He threw them both on the dusty floor and asked the man: “If I ask you to take one of the sweets which one will you choose? The man replied: “The covered one” The Sheikh said: “That’s how we treat and see our woman”.
We are seen from the extent to which faith, intellect and our intelligence, instead of the charm of our sexy body.
Everything that Allah SWT made to become valuable in the world is covered and difficult to obtain.
Where do you find a diamond? Deep in the ground covered and protected.
Where do you find pearls? Deep in the ocean floor, covered and protected in a beautiful SHELL.
Where do you find gold? Walk down in the mine, covered with layers and layers of rock. You have to work hard to get them.
Your body is sacred. You are far more valuable than diamonds and pearls, and you should be covered and protected as well. “
