POEM: No To Niqab Ban

In The Name Of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful

A letter, for Allah's sake, from a Muslim on behalf of many,
To those who think it is right to refuse niqabis' rights unjustly:
Why do you claim a piece of cloth/niqab is a threat to your city,
When there are myriad methods for some to conceal their identity?

The niqab is not just clothing but one of the keys to earn God's Love,
For Muslim women with self-respect, who in their faith wish to stay tough.
From the disobedient lewd lasses, the niqab distinguishes us.
Our goal is to be modest for God Only; we don't dress to impress.

The face we cover as it's the main source of beauty and attraction.
The voice, not one's appearance, is the icon for communication.
With the niqab, there'd be less cases of physical comparison,
And a woman's beauty is so special it's reserved for her husband.

So please understand it is unfair to ban this religious freedom.
If you leaders are concerned about your lands' safety and protection,
You might as well ban cosmetic surgery and all cosplay costumes,
Transgenderism, R-rated films, and the selling of all weapons.

By banning the niqab you're only instigating hatred, not peace.
Preventing some women from their love of modesty is tyranny.
Good countries should let their people co-exist despite diversity.
To ban the niqab makes a country close-minded, not esteemed nor free.

To check a woman's identity is okay, but don't fully ban.
The reasons why thousands of women wear niqab try to understand.
Other ways to prove identity are fingerprints, lines on one's hands,
DNA, natural gait, intellect and how the Muslimah sounds.

To Muslimahs in countries wherein wearing the niqab is not free,
Try to migrate to another place if you have the ability.
Otherwise do your best to please Allah and talk to Him steadfastly.
With God's Will you deserve Jannah Paradise for your sincerity.
Just say 'HasbunAllah wa Ne'm Al-Wakeel' and show Islam is peace.

May Allah Almighty make us among His righteous friends whom He will welcome in Jannatul Firdaus near Him and His beloved Messenger Muhammad SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam. Ameen. (old youtube channel)
