The Fitnah of the Eyes !
This is for all the sisters who post pictures and videos of themselves online in niqāb (with their eyes showing) and refuse to believe that it is Fitnah. The Imām here clearly said it’s fitnah.
So fear Allāh sisters, and remove your niqābi pictures and videos from the internet (that includes your profile picture). You are not spreading goodness, you are only spreading fitnah.
No Muslim woman with an ounce of hayah (modesty & shyness) would be comfortable having pictures and videos of herself (even if she’s in niqāb) spread online for the entire world to see 24/7 – and available for any man in the world to save, download and share with others.
The purpose of your niqāb is to conceal your beauty, take attention away from you and keep you hidden from the eyes of men. When you post pictures and videos of yourself in it – you have defeated its main purpose. You are asking for attention from men when you display pictures and videos of yourself online publicly.
(Also, it’s actually becoming quite popular for women who don’t even regularly wear the niqāb to post pictures and videos of themselves wearing it online, just to get attention & fame. These women are ruining the image of niqāb and Muslim women in general.)
And for the sisters who post pictures & videos of themselves without niqāb or anything besides their eyes showing (face, hands, etc.):
If posting pictures & videos of the eyes are fitnah, then imagine how much fitnah posting pictures & videos of the face, hands and feet are (which are ‘awrah and harām for a Muslim woman to show in the first place)!
You’re getting sin 24/7 every time a man sees your pictures & videos – and those sins increase even more when they share those pictures and videos with other people!
And for the brothers:
If looking at a woman in niqāb is harām, then imagine how much sin you get for looking at a woman’s face?! Some of you guys even think it’s okay to look at a woman just because you’re talking to her & vice versa, which is completely false. Fear Allāh & lower your gaze
And Allāh knows best
