American Muslims, why don't you go explain to your fellow Maghreb brothers that veils, like hijab, are not mandatory?

It's just one of their traditions they added in their apocryphal sunnah. You need to tell them how utterly wrong they are and how much that wrong belief of theirs hurts their women.

    hijab doesnt equal "veil" in arabic... its a covering or a way of being modest in all your aspects of life,. there is a hijab of personality, your deeds as well as your manner of dress, and this applies to men as well as women... if you mean the face veil covering.. that in arabic is called a "niqab" . and that is cultural not islamic.. hijab is all encompassing of all chaste clothing and manners... it is mandatory... but how you choose to dress in that manner is up to each individuals choice... the requirements in basic are.. for women to make sure nothing is see through material.. no skin tight clothing, dont show your leg skin, arm skin, or front chest/neck area... wear loose blouses down past your bottom region and loose long skirts or slacks.. ..a nd to cover your hair (not unlike orthodox christians or jewish women also) ... by the way.. covering and dressing concervatively doesnt hurt women....

    "Hijab is mandatory under the religion of Islam"

    No it isn't. Not once is it mentioned as a requirement from Allah.

    Hijab is good for everyone and good for society because it protects men and women from falling in to traps of devil, only lustful animals hate it. Don't wanna be rude or anything but it's the truth.

      which traps are you talking about? 'cause if it's those sexual harassments, you're just shifting the blame of the aggressor to the victims.

    Hijab is mandatory under the religion of Islam. The Sunnah or Ahl al-Kisa is the explanation of Muhammad pbuh that we have believed he recieved from Allah swt. Modesty makes muslimas look more attractive and beautiful unlike disgusting west which make them look like men with disgusting manners and who cheat on their husbands!

      the sunnah is a devious trick from shaytan to lure muslims astray from the quran. You should be following god, not a man.
