The modest dress of Muslim women, referred to as hijab, also includes a head covering or scarf which is called a khimar. This khimar is hypothesized to be a benefit to marriages. Research shows that other major world religions also institute the concept of wearing modest clothing in order to demonstrate one’s piety. This modest dress is normally imposed upon the women of the faith. Western media, however, is unfair in its depiction of the modest dress worn by Muslim women as compared to the modest dress worn by other religions, in particular Christianity. It is well known that the West views the khimar as an oppression forced upon Muslim women by the men of Islam. This study shows that the khimar is not a form of oppression forced upon the faith’s women by its men; rather we find it is a command sent down from Allah (swt). After comparing the attire of Muslim women to that of Catholic nuns, we clearly view the inequality depicted in the media. Once we have an understanding of why Muslim women choose to wear the khimar, we then shed light on how this article of modest attire is a benefit to marriages.

This is the first in a series of "Letters." These Letters will serve as encouragement, empowerment, education, and help to those who have been or are currently in a domestically violent situation. It is hoped that my story and my encouragement will give others the courage they need to walk away from a domestic violence situation before it is too late. These Letters are meant to uplift and inspire, to reach and teach, to shed a bright light on a social issue in our society that so many others sweep under the rug. It is nothing to be ashamed about. However, it most certainly IS something to do something about...
