POEM: [Allah the Almighty Knows Best] Why We Wear Niqab

In the Name of Allah
The Most Gracious The Merciful

To my niqaabi sisters around the world:
When asked 'why wear niqaab?' say, 'Just for Allah',
We dress modestly to obey Allah and
Follow the noble wives of RasulAllah.

We wear the niqaab so when you speak to us -
We're not known for our looks but for what we say,
Liked for who we are, not for a pretty face,
And by make-up and fashion we're not enslaved.

We don't dress to please fellow servants of God,
We're not forced to waste time and wealth on fashion,
We don't walk around to bring forth temptation -
To obey God Allah is our intention.

When asked 'how can we identify who's who?'
Say, 'You'll know who I am through my voice you hear,
Through my speech and personality, and my
Finger prints if you insist things should be cleared.'

'What if the one behind the veil is a man?'
A true Muslim would never do such a thing.
Muslims are enjoined to do only what's right,
To have good manners, while shunning lies and sins.

How to find a wife if all are niqaabis:
Through his female mahrams who can recommend,
Or by meeting the woman's guardians, being
Allowed to look at her with sincere intent.

When some mock the niqaab or call us 'ninjas',
We see their ignorance and to them we say:
We're not here to impress you. We love Allah.
God is our Judge, the Master of Judgment Day.

Include all Muslims in your good du'as :) May Allah the Most Merciful accept all our good deeds, forgive us always, and join us with His righteous friends in Firdaus/Heaven near Him and His beloved Messenger Muhammad sallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam. Ameen.
