POEM: A Tribute To Niqabi Sisters

In The Name Of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful

A tribute for Allah's sake to niqabis,
Courageous sisters who value modesty,
Who dress to please Allah not society.
Their beauty's reserved for their husbands only.

Niqab is not just for those who are pretty,
It's for sisters who love acquiring good deeds,
In terms of piety they love to compete,
And set themselves apart from girls who are cheap.

They're wise enough to know if you have beauty,
Don't flaunt it but treasure it, save it and keep.
Conceal it like gemstones meant for the worthy.
Your best appeal is for your husband only.

Good looks come in various forms and qualities;
Don't claim niqab is only for the pretty.
The more a Muslimah would dress modestly,
As her esteem, faith and self-respect increase.

Allah is the One Whom we aspire to please,
We won't change if some view us negatively.
Only noble souls can sense Islam's beauty
And see the worth of modest communities.

More veiled sisters means less insecurity,
Less comparison to shun adultery.
To cover up willingly is to be free,
Unlike those enslaved by fashion industries.

Judge niqabis by their personality,
Unique minds and voices - not just the body.
Muslimahs wear hijab and cover fully,
While the niqab enhances one's dignity.

Allah the Almighty said: "O' mankind, indeed We have created you from male and female and made you nations and tribes so that you may know one another [not to despise each other]. Indeed, the most noble of you in the sight of Allah is the most righteous of you. Indeed, Allah is the All-Knowing and Most Acquainted with all things." [Qur'an 49:13]

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)
