Finly lala,

First of all,
I don't reply emails from anonymous persons but in your case I'd make an exception.

1. I am a Muslimah, a person who bows to the will of Allah swt, the one and only God.
Muslim women are instructed by Allah swt to cover their breasts/ bosoms with their veils so that the shapes are not exposed to other men.

There are many verses in the al-Quran and hadith about the veil but I refer to al-Quran surah an-Nur 31 which says,

And tell the believing women to lower their gaze and be modest, and to display of their adornment only that which is apparent, and to draw their veils over their bosoms, and not to reveal their adornment save to their own husbands or fathers or husbands' fathers, or their sons or their husbands' sons, or their brothers or their brothers' sons or sisters' sons, or their women, or their slaves, or male attendants who lack vigour, or children who know naught of women's nakedness. And let them not stamp their feet so as to reveal what they hide of their adornment. And turn unto Allah together, O believers, in order that ye may succeed.

2. The verse [surah an-Naba 78:33] you refer to are those of female companions in heaven, not on earth and in this life.

3. Islam does not deny men and women from marrying and having children. However there are guidance given in the Al-Quran and hadith about the right conduct and right thinking regarding the opposite sex.
Muslim men are to cover their own aurat in front of non-muhrim women too.
They can only have freedom with their wives.

3. I am a blogger and it's my right to write about my personal views. However I don't go around in public condemning those who are wearing less than ideal length of veils because there are many reasons. They may lack the knowledge, they may follow the latest fashion blindly, or they may be stubborn. My duty is to remind them. I blog with the hope that those who are still ignorant may read and strive to better Muslimah who follow the Islamic teachings.

May you be given the taufik and hidayah to see the truth.
One of the blessings of being a female mualaf blogger in Malaysia is being exposed to various questions about why I choose Islam. Being asked about certain issues which I discuss in this blog by nonMuslims. Something that not every Muslimah blogger gets the chance to.
Of course, it's challenging. Alhamdulillah I've managed to answer most of the questions in this blog, as well as emails from readers.
The latest which arrived last night was from an anonymous person who actually referred me to a ex-muslim site [with misleading information] to argue his/her case. Why? You tell me.


  1. Salam ramadhan kak aliya.
    IMHO, you are way better than me in explaining questions like that. And I do hope Finly lala would have a better understanding regarding our aurah and modesty in Islam.
    I'm glad that you are a Muslimah kak because your opinion and understanding about Islam is better than average born-Muslim.

  2. alhamdulillah...
    may Allah bless u always

  3. i am interested to read the email that you're responding to. It's good to share in this blog as well....

  4. Assalamualaikum kakchik, kl citize. the Author,
    It's irritating when an anonymous writer send emails and pointing out issues such as breast, suckle, islamic voodoo and pesta seks islam, and using a website created by ex-muslims to argue his/her case.
    I'm busy this week so I've told him/her that unless he/she identifies him/herself, that's the end of the discussion.
    I will not waste time answering questions by someone anonymous whose intention until now is to 'show-off what Islam murtad think is wrong with the al-Quran."

  5. K aliya akan hadapi org macam tu bila tulis blog mengenai Islam. Terdapat sesetengah org yg x suka Islam, memburuk2kan Islam (saya dah lali baca mengenainya dlm Internet).
    Jadi bila akak defend Islam, tulis the beauty on Islam, mereka ada PHD (Perasaan Hasad Dengki).
    So buat x tahu je dengan depa. Akak teruskan aje what u are good at. Insyaallah, lebih ramai lagi yg akan berminat dgn Islam. Dan lebih ramai lagi yg ada PHD nie..he he he..

    Depa ada PHD nie psl depa x boleh tulis mcm mana yg akak tulis(mengenai Islam) kepada kepercayaan mereka.

  6. Salam.

    IMHO, ini semua kurnia hidayah Allah SWT. golongan tertentu akan sentiasa ingin berdebat. bersyukur kita kerana dipelihara dalam iman. isu murtad is something we have to acknowledge as it is rapidly spreading hatta di Indonesia sekalipun. ayahanda tersayang sentiasa menjemput golongan2 (bekas imam, hafiz, anak2 tokoh agama) ini ke rumah dgn harapan i would turn back. why these ppl frequent my house adlh kerana ayahanda is a minister who provides them refuge. more often than not, golongan ini begitu takbur sekali mendabik dada kerana meninggalkan Islam. maka itu dgn sendirinya, i sense there's something 'not right' with their akhlak. wallahualam, who am i to judge, alas boasting about their new found faith turned me off =) i bear this for 10 years since i was 16. now, my family is more understanding. alhamdulillah.

    antara peringatan yg sering saya utarakan buat diri pelajar dan juga diri saya sendiri, sentiasalah bermohon agar Allah terus memberikan hidayah kpd kita. hidayah ini terlalu bernilai sekali. ilmu penuh di dada bukan jaminan syurga jika tidak beramal. the degree of iman must be accompanied by taqwa as well.

    ops. terpanjangla pula comment. anyway, keep up the ministry of da'wah. insyaAllah,semoga setiap kita diberi peranan menegakkan ad-din selagi hayat dikandung badan.

    -Fatihah Nur Izzati-

  7. Waalaikumussalam ms.fatihah,
    Yes, agree with you. Terima kasih kerana berkongsi pengalaman.
    Maaf tak dapat komen panjang kerana line internet di sini masih kurang memuaskan.

  8. Assalamualaikum uji,
    Benar kata uji. Kak aliya tulis kerana ia adalah sebahagian daripada apa yang mampu dibuat untuk dakwah Islam ketika ini, selain daripada menyampaikan ceramah [jika ada jemputan]. Tak kisah sangat dengan mereka yang ada PHD, kerana tiada apa yang mampu mereka lakukan tanpa izin Allah swt.

  9. salam, saya doakan agar kamu tabah menjalani hidup, banyak dugaan datang dalam pelbagai bentuk, Insyallah, semua itu akan jadi manis suatu hari nanti. Allah SWT hanya akan menguji insan yang dia kehendaki sahaja....dan Dia sayang..

  10. Waalaikumussalam small world,
    Terima kasih.. ameen.
