The Hijab Liberation or Oppression?
In the twenty-first century, the obligation of wearing the hijab is being questioned, and indeed, the freedom of Muslim women to wear the hijab is under threat in many countries. In this useful resource boob, Dr. Gohar Mushtaq comprehensively explains the benefits of wearing the hijab, citing evidence from both Islamic sources and scientific research. The author also expertly analyses fascinating research to highlight the little-known wisdom behind the institution of the hijab. Furthermore, he tackles some of the topics that are generally misunderstood in Islam, such as the segregation of men and women in gatherings. Muslims and non-Muslims alike will glean new insights into the hijab, which generates so much controversy in some circles.
“This is a much needed book at a time and age when eyes are dazzled by modernity, where modesty has lost its value and many Muslims have embraced the apologetic edition of the religion of Islam”
