The Quran instructs both Muslim men and women to dress in a modest way, but there is disagreement on how these instructions should be interpreted.The verses relating to dress use the terms khimār (head cover) and jilbāb (a dress or cloak) rather than ḥijāb.Hijab can also be used to refer to the seclusion of women from men in the public sphere, or it may denote a metaphysical dimension, for example referring to "the veil which separates man or the world from God".
The ethical barrier, is known to make something forbidden such as the 'purity of hearts' in reference to the Prophet's wives and the Muslim men who visit them.
The Arabic word jilbab is translated as "cloak" in the following passage.
Sometimes its use is literal, as in the verse which refers to the screen that separated Muhammad's wives from the visitors to his house (), while in other cases the word denotes separation between deity and mortals (), wrongdoers and righteous (, 41:5), believers and unbelievers (), and light from darkness ().
The interpretation of the ḥijāb as separation can be digested in three ways: as a visual barrier, physical barrier, and ethical barrier.
Married at age 21 A few years ago the president of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, asserted that his nation did not have gays as they did in the West.
What Ahmadinejad seems to have meant is that a public gay identity does not exist in Iran.A recent paper reports that 40-45% of men aged 25-29 were unmarried. There is likely selection bias in the sample, even if it is less clear than in the case of truck drivers at STD clinics or prisoners. But it finally gives us a concrete number to point to when we allude to the likelihood that male-to-male sexual contact has to be rife in societies where heterosexual sex outside of marriage is very difficult, and marriage has to be delayed to the exigencies of the modern economy. This blog is about evolution, genetics, genomics and their interstices.Please beware that comments are aggressively moderated.This had led some to argue that the mandate of the Qur'an to wear hijab applied to the wives of Muhammad, and not women generally.In recent times, wearing hijab in public has been required by law in Saudi Arabia (for Muslims), Iran and the Indonesian province of Aceh.Contemporary Salafis insist that the jilbab (which is worn over the Kimaar and covers from the head to the toe) worn today is the same garment mentioned in the Qur'an and the hadith; other translators have chosen to use less specific terms: Debate focused on how much of the male or female body should be covered.
