Some people who know me, know that I love eyes, heck even people who just read this blog should know that I have a thing for eyes... and bottoms obviously, but I'm discussing eyes today. Eyes are like the 5th sexual organ, or something. Anyway, that brings me to the hot topic of the Niqaab! The "nick wha?" you ask. The niqāb (نِقاب) comes between the Burqa and the Hijab, when talking about Muslim Women and their fantastical veils of secrecy (collectively known as "Hijab").
The original idea behind these veils is to cover their "Awrah", to stop women worrying about their looks and to conceal their beauty, but boy, did Muhammad get it wrong when he designed the Niqaab; it's like split-crotch panties for your face! It blocks out all the filler and hits you straight with the best part! In case you hadn't noticed, this is a fairly light hearted post about Islamic tradition so I'm not going to bogged down with the exact technicalities of Islamic law regarding modesty. I will say however that Islamic men are obliged to cover up as well as women, something thats forgotten in the whole "bomb them sand-niggers" debate.
So I love these sexy Niqab wearing ladies, whom are collectively known as the "niqābī". I thought I had more to say about this but I guess I don't. It should be noted that the sexiest niqābī are frowned upon by many Muslims, and totally Haram to the fundamentalists. Woman who "tart-up" their Niqab and/or use makeup on their eyes are going against the whole principle of wearing the veil in the first place.
I can't say much about the religious reasoning behind it but I love women of Islam who only expose their eyes, for they are like sexy ninja! And here is the "inspirational poster" I made to prove it!
As a by the way, I've always liked Arabic culture, which of course Islam is a big part of, but the two don't automatically equal each other (only 30% of Muslims world wide are Arabs). Arabic music kicks serious ass (micro tonal ftw!)! Something I've found though, the internet may make the whole world seem more local, but searching for stuff in a language that uses a different alphabet is still quite hard :)
