Dear Muslim women, you are NOT sinning if men get aroused by you

This is a follow up to my articles on women not being sex objects.

Muslim women are constantly told by sheikhs and the common person that they are sinful if they go out and men get turned on. There is a hadith on this that says the devil goes out with women, and you know what? Don't believe in it. Its a false and weak hadith. Its stupid to assume that Allah created women as sex objects who need to cover up and be hidden away because men can't control their lusts. Its stupid to assume that Allah only created women to wear burkas and be housewives because again, men can't control themselves.

Its because of this idiotic and sick thinking that muslim women are denied full public participation in everyday life. I see here in the west how women are living their lives just like how men are, and it annoys and saddens me that muslim countries restrict women's activities because men will get turned on.

Think about it, do handsome Muslim sin when women raise their gaze at them? I have friends, and I'm man enough to know some of them are good looking. They know they turn heads when they walk past women. Are these men sinning? Should they wear hijab and burka to avoid attention from women? Is the devil going out with them too?

The rule that Muslim women shouldn't wear provocative, sleazy, and racy clothing is just so that they should be professional in appearance. This doesn't mean you are to be covered head to toe in a burka, niqab, or hijab, rather it means you wear regular modest clothes that even your non-muslim neighbors wear. This is not hard to understand. If men find you beautiful (not the same thing as aroused by the way), then its NOT your fault in any way and don't think it is. Ignore the salafi and wahabi shitheads who will come at you. Many Muslim women mind their own business without having the intention to cause lustful thoughts and feelings from men, so how on EARTH does it make ANY sense that these women are sinning??

  1. So do you view covering up as only due to men's arousal? My understanding was the main reason for this was modesty before Allah, hence covering while praying as well in the company of other sisters or alone. My understanding is also that men were to wear hijab as well, honoring Allah in dress and lowering their gaze as well.
