You Can’t Judge a Book by Its Cover: Muslim Women

Muslim women are covered up from head to toe. Behind these covered up people are people just like you. They are people who like to buy the latest fashion clothing, probably listen to all types of modern music, want to live in a better world, and don’t differ from you that much. However, the only difference is how they dress. Muslim women are all covered up because they want to be judged for their intelligence and not their looks. Remember, beauty is only skin deep.

There are some women out there who cover themselves; however, these women are not Muslim women because they don’t cover their hair. Muslim women choose to cover their hair for modesty, dignity and respect. Muslim women believe that if a man can only see the face or the eyes of a woman, he is forced to think of that woman as a person instead of a sexy object.

Don’t be fooled by the outside looks of Muslim women because looks can be deceiving.Not all Muslim women are uneducated or have arranged marriages. Even though some Muslim females are uneducated and have arranged marriages, they are human beings. Islamic women like to cover their bodies; therefore, Islamic women care about how their outfits look. For instance, they make sure that the hijab (head scarf) goes with the rest of their clothes.

Some people judge Muslim women by saying that they are oppressed; they are all terrorists, slaves to their husbands, unequal to Muslim men (everyone is equal before GOD), and many other negative things. What people like this are doing is judging a book by its cover. The personality of people, no matter who they are, is not always obvious because we only see the outside surface of that person. We should keep our judgments to ourselves until we know that person very well.
