Praise be to Allah, may his peace, blessing, and mercy be upon HIS Prophet-Muhammad – who has taught us that patience counts only with immediacy. I pray that the grace extends to his household, his companions, and his followers till the day of reckoning.
Allah SWT, the merciful and Omni knowest says in Suratul Noor where he explained about the woman honor, integrity and morality (interpretation of the meaning):
وَقُل لِّلْمُؤْمِنَٰتِ يَغْضُضْنَ مِنْ أَبْصَٰرِهِنَّ وَيَحْفَظْنَ فُرُوجَهُنَّ وَلَا يُبْدِينَ زِينَتَهُنَّ إِلَّا مَا ظَهَرَ مِنْهَا ۖ وَلْيَضْرِبْنَ بِخُمُرِهِنَّ عَلَىٰ جُيُوبِهِنَّ ۖ وَلَا يُبْدِينَ زِينَتَهُنَّ إِلَّا لِبُعُولَتِهِنَّ أَوْ ءَابَآئِهِنَّ أَوْ ءَابَآءِ بُعُولَتِهِنَّ أَوْ أَبْنَآئِهِنَّ أَوْ أَبْنَآءِ بُعُولَتِهِنَّ أَوْ إِخْوَٰنِهِنَّ أَوْ بَنِىٓ إِخْوَٰنِهِنَّ أَوْ بَنِىٓ أَخَوَٰتِهِنَّ أَوْ نِسَآئِهِنَّ أَوْ مَا مَلَكَتْ أَيْمَٰنُهُنَّ أَوِ ٱلتَّٰبِعِينَ غَيْرِ أُو۟لِى ٱلْإِرْبَةِ مِنَ ٱلرِّجَالِ أَوِ ٱلطِّفْلِ ٱلَّذِينَ لَمْ يَظْهَرُوا۟ عَلَىٰ عَوْرَٰتِ ٱلنِّسَآءِ ۖ وَلَا يَضْرِبْنَ بِأَرْجُلِهِنَّ لِيُعْلَمَ مَا يُخْفِينَ مِن زِينَتِهِنَّ ۚ وَتُوبُوٓا۟ إِلَى ٱللَّهِ جَمِيعًا أَيُّهَ ٱلْمُؤْمِنُونَ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُفْلِحُونَ
“And tell the believing women to lower their gaze (from looking at forbidden things), and protect their private parts (from illegal sexual acts) and not to show off their adornment except only that which is apparent (like both eyes for necessity to see the way, or outer palms of hands or one eye or dress like veil, gloves, headcover, apron), and to draw their veils all over Juyoobihinna (i.e. their bodies, faces, necks and bosoms) and not to reveal their adornment except to their husbands, or their fathers, or their husband’s fathers, or their sons, or their husband’s sons, or their brothers or their brother’s sons, or their sister’s sons, or their (Muslim) women (i.e. their sisters in Islam), or the (female) slaves whom their right hands possess, or old male servants who lack vigour, or small children who have no sense of feminine sex. And let them not stamp their feet to reveal what they hide of their adornment. And all of you beg Allaah to forgive you all, O believers, that you may be successful” [al-Noor 24:31]
From the above narration, Allaah SWT tells Prophet (ﷺ) to tell the Muslim women to lower their gaze and their private part from a stranger or those who don’t have right over their bodies. He continues by saying they should hide their adornment except for only that show. This goes in line with the trend “SEX FOR GRADE,” Allaah SWT who created us knows what he created not only did HE ordain us on nothing rather than to protect Muslim female folks from any sexual harassment or such alike, he continues by saying they should protect their body from strangers and their adornment.
BBC News Africa releases a documentary that exposes the problem of female students in Nigeria Universities and other West African countries Universities where their lecturers demand sex before assisting or helping them with challenges they might be facing, which is called SEX FOR GRADE. From the documentary, no student in her full HIJAB has been harassed or a victim of such atrocity on campus, it doesn’t happen at out blue, but the promise of Allaah will surely come true.
Furthermore, Allaah continue saying “And let them not stamp their feet to reveal what they hide of their adornment”, this should be picturise that Muslim students shouldn’t show any part of their bodies that will surely call the attention of opposite sex (male), but due to lack of understanding many Muslim face in understanding Quranic verses, where some Muslim scholars who called against the used of it and where Muslim of today even self-will to do whatever they want to be given that they are “grownup and they know what’s what”. Respect will and always be given to Muslim females with her Hijab in any society.
They are still free from mess, harassment, unceremonious public touches, and most importantly, they’ll only be called to woo with respect by respectful males provided they are always in their HIJAB.
To the Glory of Allaah SWT, Whom HIS words cease to come to pass inevitably, no Servant or his creatures abide by HIS ruling have ever regret in any endeavours. And this is the basis behind the reason why Muslim students with HIJAB are not a victim of the inhumane act by some Lecturers and staff of higher institutions across West Africa Countries.
