To wear scarf or not to wear scarf


When Imam Feisal wrote on hudud in his column Peace Be Upon Us last month, a concerned father wrote for advice, saying his daughter had decided, based on her study of the Quran and the hadith, to remove the headscarf she had been brought up wearing, just before her university graduation. He shares his views here.

IT is important, first of all, to recognise that your daughter’s convictions and your concerns both come from well-intentioned, considered places. Though your opinions may be different, you and your daughter are both striving to live in accordance with God’s law and to do right by each other. This common ground is profound and sacred, and from what I read in your letter, there is no question that you and your daughter share it.
