Hijab4Men: Let’s turn the tables and show men how it feels

What would it be like if men and beards were treated like women and headscarves? PHOTO: FACEBOOK PAGE (https://www.facebook.com/hijab4men)

You’re showing too much hair. You’re wearing a lot of makeup and your tight jeans? Well, you’re ruining the reputation of the hijab.

These are just a few examples of the criticism many hijabis face. 

Recently there were even adverts all over the Middle East comparing Muslim women to wrapped sweets – a lollipop with a wrapper symbolises perfection, that is, the angelic Muslim maintaining her pardah, while an ‘unwrapped lolly’ attracts flies to the haram enticement of an exposed ‘sweet’.

The men behind such adverts will deny that comparing Muslim women to sweets is objectifying us. They will contest that they are merely using the analogy as guidance for the benefit of their Muslim sisters by showing concern.

Here is another example, circulating its way around the web.

A Christian asked a Muslim,

“Why do your women cover their bodies and hair?”

The Muslim smiled and got two sweets. He unwrapped the first one and kept the other one wrapped. He threw them both on the dusty floor and asked the Christian,

“If I asked you to take one of the sweets, which one will you choose?”

The Christian obviously replied,

“The covered one.”

Then the Muslim said,

“In the same way that the wrapper protects the sweet from dust, the hijab protects our ladies from the sins and evil of this world.”

There is an increasing expectation for Muslim women to conform to a certain ‘saintly’ exterior when wearing the hijab , otherwise there is a risk of ruining this clean-cut image. It doesn’t matter how much she prays or heaven forbid how much knowledge she has, let the men focus solely on her headscarf.

It is not just these advertising campaigns that are to blame. The West’s orientalist vision of Muslim women doesn’t help either.

From Pew Research polls of ‘how people in Muslim countries prefer women to dress in public’ – complete with different diagrams of hijab styles – to World Hijab Day which paved the way for white saviour complexes to post selfies of themselves in hijabs, turning it into a costume for the day, once again the West appropriated Muslim women and condescendingly tried to understand us without giving us a voice of our own.

Is being a Muslim woman really all about appearance?

Before you start playing the moral police,  let me ask you this.

What if the tables were turned?

What if we did the same with men?

Hijab4Men did exactly that with their satirical Facebook page. Although this group mocks the stupidity of such advertising campaigns, some Muslim men should take a taste of their own medicine.

The ethos of Hijab4Men is simple,

“What would it be like if men and beards were treated like women and headscarves?” 

Pictures such as a bearded Muslim praying in comparison to a man wearing swimming trunks on the beach can be used in the same context of the hijabi-candy adverts can’t they?

There was one caption that had me in fits. It accompanied both, a peeled and an unpeeled kiwi and I’ve shared it below:

If Muslims want to progress, it is imperative to understand the double standards when it comes to women in Islam, as Hijab4Men so hilariously demonstrates.

    Spot-on Zab! This thing with the sweets had been bothering me for a long time.

    Many women in Pakistan do a lot of objectionable things under the cover of hijab as it does provide them ‘security’! Security in doing whatever they want as they would still be considered pious because they cover their head! A girl who wears jeans is automatically considered a ‘jahanummi’ even if she does not lie or cheat, respects her parents, prays to Allah, doesn’t have relationships and gets good grades.

    Thank you for pointing out our problem of dual standards in such a fun way!Recommend

  • Warda

    Lets not just blame men for everything. Being a women and living in a society such as Pakistan while wearing western clothing, I have mostly been judged by women as compared to men. Once while wearing a normal shirt and straight jeans, I was called a ‘jahanumi’ by a hajabi woman who had his son dressed in jeans. That is double standard. Allowed for boys, not for girls.Recommend

  • Miss Syed

    Really? what’s your point? I mean, what kind of bloggers get space here. Hire me tribune!!!
    Yes, I understand people care more about the appearances be it a man or a woman, but you can’t deny Modesty is NOT a part of Islam. It’s equal for both Men and Women, If you study Islam, you’ll see Islam discourages Tight jeans for men as well. Clothing has to be modest.

    Who are you kidding, If it’s really not about attire being a bit different for men and women, as demonstrated by your examples, I ask you, why in the west where, the modesty standards are quite “liberal” why is it that on the beaches a woman wear 2 pieces and a man only ONE?
    such blatant bigotry, where are the equal right for women, women should also be allowed to wear only one piece. nudity, which by the way is a criminal offence in MOST of the countries should be lifted. It’s the INSIDE THAT MATTERS. appearances MATTER NOT!!

    Yea, right? Kinda makes sense!!!Recommend

  • Abeer Pervaiz

    Unfortunately according to a few Muslim male “Islam” is only restricted to women!

    I totally agree with the author. However, it is not just some Muslim male but also some Muslim females that have the same perception. Indeed education and knowledge is imperative for Islam to progress. I also believe no one has the right to judge anyone except God Himself. We should try to fix the faults in us ourselves rather pointing fingers at others and in the Islamic world at Women. Recommend

  • http://blogs.tribune.com.pk/author/430/faraz-talat/ Faraz Talat

    I’ve been following the Facebook page almost since its inception. I think it’s a brilliant idea that shows a mirror to men giving condescending advice to women on sartorial matters.

    Any culture that disproportionately burdens one gender group with upholding customs, while allowing men to parade around in whatever clothing feels convenient to them (including the ‘Western clothing’ that is forbidden to women), would likely benefit from some reformation.Recommend

    The problem is that we lack the ability to accept the truth. Hijab is obligatory on every muslim woman and she will not be considered as a true momina until she wears it no matter what anybody says. If you do not want to wear it, its up to you. And no one has the right to criticize you. It is true that not only wearing the hijab matters but one has to go through many spiritual levels to truly become pious but your argument is completely invalid. Men are least bothered in this issue, women on the other hand love tearing the flesh off one another. Recommend

    But women will ask their partners not to have beards. Men are being made to follow their whims…Recommend

  • Miss Syed

    @Miss Syed:

    I’d also like to add, The writer says, these ad campaigns objectify women, I think objectification of women is MORE SO, when the media makes them feel worthless if WOMEN of the world, DO not conform to a specific exterior (standard set by people) Women have been turned into A product by everyone!

    Media enforces upon women to wear heels, to look a specific way in terms of weight, color etc.,, pornographic industry is worth billions, what is this? if not objectification? the Hip-hop industry, the lyrics? ever read the lyrics reducing the worth of a woman worse than that of an animal? WHY MUST YOU NOT WRITE AGAINST THAT? i ask why? Islam liberates a woman from these vain desires of men and women. I maybe a hypocrite, but the truth is, women are objectified everywhere in every way possible.

    A woman is suppose to be dressed modestly, she doesn’t have to become a slave of the world, of the cosmetic industry, to feel inferior if not dressed that PARTICULAR WAY!
    If the west can publish ads of half naked women shamelessly, claiming this is the worth of a woman, to include a women in the advertisements of Men’s razor WHY? e must you target a particular section of the society ( following islam) for propogating what they think is right? WHY must you be so harsh while falsely claiming you are liberal?
    I ask Why?Recommend

  • abubakar

    In the original survey most people in pakistan voted for women no.2 . And if we talk about islam you cannot deny (or maybe you dont know) , Islam mandates niqab for women http://islamqa.info/en/12525
    but at the same time it calls men to lower their gazes. So whether you admit it or keep denying it niqab is compulsory. You don’t want to follow this aspect of islam it’s up to you but atleast have the guts to say that you don’t want to follow these teachings. And before anyone tells me that I’m mistaken or the article in the link is not correct representation of islam! Then first answer this do you know more about islam than the panel of acholars that sit on that site? NIQAB IS MANDATORY that’s what islam says you cant change it.Recommend

  • aleem maq

    I’m tired of Muslim men being so ignorant and superior to women. Arguing with such fanatics gets you nowhere. Men and women should always be equal and I believe that if a woman should dress “modestly” then so should a man, which of course doesn’t happen. Religious Muslim men can dish it out, but can’t take criticism back when it hits them in the face as this blog post clearly demonstrates. Just check the Facebook thread and you’ll see my point.Recommend

  • kay

    @Miss Syed:
    Nobody’s saying that modesty isn’t important. What they’re saying is that it’s frustrating to have women constantly criticised while only a few select groups ever criticise men. There are all sorts of facebook pages where people post pictures of girls and mock them for having “incorrect hijab” or they post these insulting pictures comparing women to food or accessories, but the only page I’ve ever seen ever say the same thing about men has been this Hijab4Men page.

    Like, if you’re going to get upset over lack of modesty, then discuss it equally in regards to men and women and encourage equal discussion, don’t just focus solely on women. It’s not fair to women, and it also makes it so that men think that they can get away with whatever they want to.Recommend

  • Yaqub Hariri

    Well done to the people who made the Hijab4Men Facebook page. Had me in stitches for the most of it. The ET comment thread for this article is also very entertaining. Most of the angry haters are men still blaming women for a bit of satire. Check it out :)Recommend

  • Asma

    People don’t understand what Islam is. May I remind you that the holy Quran states:

    “Tell the believing men to lower their gaze and be modest” Quran 24:30

    AND

    “And say to the believing women that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty; that they should not display their beauty and ornaments except what (must ordinarily) appear thereof; that they should draw their khimar over their breasts and not display their beauty except to their husband, their fathers, their husband’s fathers, their sons, their husbands’ sons, their brothers or their brothers’ sons, or their sisters’ sons, or their women, or the slaves whom their right hands possess, or male servants free of physical needs, or small children who have no sense of the shame of sex; and that they should not strike their feet in order to draw attention to their hidden ornaments.” Quran 24:31

    Cover the bosom area. Tell me, where does it mention a hijab or niqab? And before saying the jilbab, that translates as “cloak” in Arabic. Not veil.

    So how about lowering your gaze rather than getting women to cover up? Recommend

    I think the basic concept behind this is to prevent sin, if woman wearing Hijab and man having beard can solve all the problems, would be ideal/great, but in real world, there is lot more to it.
    I know a lot our Muslim brothers like their woman to sit home and raise kids, they are asked to cover their body to stay safe in public(Because out there, there are man with free floating wishes to ruin a woman), as they know there are man out there like them, who are allowed to do what ever they want as they are set free, as per their vision.
    Same with woman wearing Hijab with tight fit clothes to show the beauty they got is not appropriate either, it triggers man’s impulse and if we do not teach our children to control their impulse from childhood, there is a problem, we are asked to fast to learn to control our impulses).
    So woman wearing modest clothes and man behave properly as per society values and of course as per Quran is fundamental rules is the basic idea.
    All men should control their impulse around woman and provide freedom to their woman and woman do the same with their partners, that will keep the peace. It is all about feelings and control. (we are asked to cover/control ourselves and let other gender to be free……not correct), no one should be allowed to be free and ask other to control, totally wrong, double standard.Recommend

    If I am not wrong Muslim men are allowed to have free sex with slave women.

    A Kuwaiti woman who once ran for parliament has called for sex slavery to be legalised – and suggested that non-Muslim prisoners from war-torn countries would make suitable concubines.

    Where exactly does Islam mandate niqab??
    That’s right, it doesn’t. Niqab is a man made concept. Islam mandates MODESTY for both men and women; it does not mandate wearing a shuttlecock burqa. People who make their own definitions of modesty and then impose them on others are part of the problem. Recommend

    The point of contention is not about the fact that Allah mandates modesty for those who follow; rather it’s WHAT defines modesty.Many people conflict over what defines modesty.
