Why Black Abaya most popular

black abaya

plain black Abaya; a beautiful option for islamic women, Islam being a religion of modest has defined some guidelines for the male and female clothing.

what is abaya we can define abaya is one of the clothing that is meant for the females exclusively. Abayah , also known as Abba is the loose garment robe like a dress which is normally in black color. It is from head to toe covering the full body of Muslim women in some parts of the world

a large number of people in the Muslim community regard wearing the Abaya as a cultural thing rather than a religious thing. This is somewhat true as women in Pakistan rarely wear Abayas, but women in Saudi Arabia and some other Middle Eastern states always wear an Abaya when in public.

abaya and burqa difference

abaya vs burka

 Abaya Similar to a Burka, an Abaya is a loose robe which covers the entire body of a woman, excluding the hands, the face and the feet. The practice of wearing an Abaya is quite common in the Middle East and many parts of South East Asia as well.

Abaya Unlike the Burka, an Abaya does not provide complete coverage to a woman’s body as the face, the feet and the hands remain exposed. However, a lot of women wear a Niqab and gloves along with the Abaya to cover their face and the hands.

Why is the black Abaya most popular?

black abaya

As opposed to what most people believe, the Holy Quran does not specify what colour Abaya women should wear. It only specifies that a woman’s body needs to be covered as much as possible when in public.

white-thobe-qamis-jubbas
Most Muslim women in the Middle East still wear plain black Abayas, while Muslim men wear white Jubbas or thobe  (a long robe).

This goes to show that the colour of clothing is more of a regional norm, rather than a religious requirement.

Plain black abaya benefits

However, there are many practical benefits to wearing a black Abaya:

First of all, the black Abaya is completely opaque and it does not accentuate any body parts. This means that the black Abaya offers better coverage than Abayas of other colours. Moreover, the black colour of the Abaya absorbs heat on its surface, while allowing convection underneath.

Even though a woman may be wearing a black Abaya in hot weather, she will not feel sweaty or warm as the robe is lightweight and somewhat breathable. The black Abaya offers better shade to a woman’s body and lowers temperatures significantly.

different type of abaya

The modern day Abaya has come a long way from simply being a garment that is used to cover a woman’s body. Contemporary Abaya styles are usually made out of light fabrics such as chiffon, crepe or georgette. Abayas are similar to a cut robe or a caftan.

Two of the most popular styles are the Abaya with the front closed and the Abaya with the front open. The styles of the Abaya vary significantly from one region to another. The black Abaya is the simplest and most common type of Abaya. However, modern Abayas often feature embroidery or embellishments on the black fabric. Abayas are also available in other dark or bright colours and may have artwork featured on them.

Where to buy a black Abaya
For someone living in the Middle East or other Muslim countries around the world, purchasing a black Abaya is not difficult. There are several stores which sell traditional Muslim garments and black Abayas can easily be found.
Women who live in the Western world can visit specialty stores which stock religious clothing to buy a black Abaya. While these stores may be few and far between, they can nevertheless be found in most countries. Women can also find black abaya online stores. This is a much more convenient option as one does not need to go anywhere. Moreover, online stores feature different styles of black Abayas.
The price of an Abaya depends on the type of fabric used and also the artwork, embellishments or embroidery on the fabric. Buying an Abaya in the global world is not too difficult. One simply needs to find a reputed online store, browse through a few collections and make a purchase.

What does Quran say about women?

 

What does Quran say about women?

What does Quran say about women?

Quran, Surah Al-Hujurat, Ayat 13
O mankind, We have created you male and female, and appointed you races and tribes, that you may know one another. Surely the noblest among you in the sight of God is the most godfearing of you. God is All-knowing, All-aware.   Surah Al-Hujurat [13]

The value and the status of the women can be seen from the Quran and Sunnah. Her importance can be witnessed in the Holy Quran; where Almighty has bestowed one complete chapter (Surah Nisa-The Women) for the women only.

How was the first woman created?

Quran, Surah An-Nisaa, Ayat 1
Mankind, fear your Lord, who created you of a single soul, and from it created its mate, and from the pair of them scattered abroad many men and women; and fear God by whom you demand one of another, and the wombs; surely God ever watches over you.   An-Nisaa [1]

While interpreting this verse, what is generally said is as follows: Allah Almighty created Eve from Adams left rib. In the meantime, Adam took a little nap. As soon as he awoke from his sleep, he saw Eve beside him. He was first surprised and then a familiarity and warmth took place between them.
This point is clearly revealed in some hadiths. Below are the some hadiths with regard to this matter:

Abu Hurayra reported that the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, “Treat women well. Woman was created from a rib. The most crooked part of the rib is the top part. If you try to straighten it, you will break it. If you leave it, it remains crooked. So treat women well.” [Agreed upon]

The practices of Prophet Muhammad (PBHU) show his equality and love with his wives and even with his daughter as well.

“Paradise lies under the feet of mothers”, announced the Prophet (swa). With this instruction, a Divine law, it became a religious responsibility, a praiseworthy act, to respect and honor women.

Women in the Qur’an

women are important characters and subjects of discussion in the stories and morals taught in Islam. Some of the women in the Qur’an are portrayed in a positive light, while others are condemned for their actions. Mary (Maryam – مريم) is the only woman mentioned in the Qur’an by name. The others’ names come from other traditions. Most of the women in the Quran are represented as either the mothers or wives of certain leaders and prophets.

While the Qur’an does not directly name any woman except for Mary, women play a role in many of the rich and varied stories that the Qur’an tells. These stories have been subject to manipulation and rigid interpretation in both classical commentary and popular literature from patriarchal societies. The cultural norms existing within patriarchy have shaped the way that these societies approached the text and created a pervading narrative that dictated the way future generations were set up to interpret these stories and the role of women within the Qur’an.

Women mentioned in the Quran:

1-Hawaa’ –Eve

Eve, like all other women in the Qur’an, save for Mary, is not mentioned by name. However, in later hadith she is referred to as Hawaa as Adam’s partner and wife.

Quran, Surah An-Nisaa, Ayat 1
Mankind, fear your Lord, who created you of a single soul, and from it created its mate, and from the pair of them scattered abroad many men and women; and fear God by whom you demand one of another, and the wombs; surely God ever watches over you.   An-Nisaa [1]
Quran, Surah Al-Baqarah, Ayat 35
And We said, ‘Adam, dwell thou, and thy wife, in the Garden, and eat thereof easefully where you desire; but draw not nigh this tree, lest you be evildoers.’   Surah Al-Baqarah [35]

2-Mary (Maryam)

Mary, the mother of Jesus, is one of the most important women in the Qur’an. as she is the only woman identified by name.

Quran, Surah Maryam, Ayat 16
And mention in the Book Mary when she withdrew from her people to an eastern place,  Surah Maryam [16]

 

Her name not only appears far more in the Qur’an than in the New Testament, but it is also the title of Sura 19,surat maryam (or verse of the Qur’an) is named after her and Allah chooses her above all women. which discusses the annunciation, Jesus’s birth, and Jesus’s first words, spoken before birth and in the cradle

Quran, Surah Al-i'Imran, Ayat 42
And when the angels said, ‘Mary, God has chosen thee, and purified thee; He has chosen thee above all women. Surah Al-i’Imran [42]
Quran, Surah At-Tahrim, Ayat 12
And Mary, Imran’s daughter, who guarded her virginity, so We breathed into her of Our Spirit, and she confirmed the Words of her Lord and His Books, and became one of the obedient. Surah At-Tahrim [12]

3-Mother of Moses  (pbuh) 

(Umm-Musa)

The mother of Moses is the only woman in the Qur’an to receive divine inspiration. God inspired her to suckle the child until she feared for his life and then to cast him into the river without sadness or fear, because God would eventually restore him to her and make him one of His messengers.

Quran, Surah Al-Qasas, Ayat 7
So We revealed to Moses’ mother, ‘Suckle him, then, when thou fearest for him, cast him into the sea, and do not fear, neither sorrow, for We shall return him to thee, and shall appoint him one of the Envoys.’  Al-Qasas [7]
4-Sister of Moses
Quran, Surah Al-Qasas, Ayat 11
and she said to his sister, ‘Follow him,’ and she perceived him from afar, even while they were not aware.   Al-Qasas [11]

5-Wife of Moses

Quran, Surah Al-Qasas, Ayat 26
Said one of the two women, ‘Father, hire him; surely the best man thou canst hire is the one strong and trusty.’     Al-Qasas [26]

6-Wives of Noah and Lot

The three verses in the Qur’an mentioning the wives of Noah and Lot, or Nuh and Lut in Arabic, are a conjoined entry depicting the consequences and response by Allah to non-believers. According to the Qur’an and later depictions, both women were guilty of not believing the message of their prophet husbands, and therefore failed both as wives and religious figures.

Quran, Surah At-Tahrim, Ayat 10
God has struck a similitude for the unbelievers — the wife of Noah, and the wife of Lot; for they were under two of Our righteous servants, but they betrayed them, so they availed them nothing whatsoever against God; so it was said, ‘Enter, you two, the Fire with those who enter.’  Surah At-Tahrim [10]

7-Daughters of Lot

The daughters of Lot are first mentioned in Sura 11 (Hud) when Lot offers their hand in marriage as a path to absolve the sins of his neighbors in Sodom.

Quran, Surah Hud, Ayat 78
And his people came to him, running towards him; and erstwhile they had been doing evil deeds. He said, ‘O my people, these are my daughters; they are cleaner for you. So fear God, and do not degrade me in my guests. What, is there not one man among you of a right mind?’  Surah Hud [78]

and Surah Hud [79]

Quran, Surah Hud, Ayat 79
They said, ‘Thou knowest we have no right to thy daughters, and thou well knowest what we desire.’   Surah Hud [79]

8-Sarah, Wife of Abraham

In contrast to the Old Testament and the Torah, Sarah, wife of the Prophet Abraham, plays a decidedly smaller role in the Qur’an. In both the Christian and Jewish tradition she is the mother of the chosen son, Isaac, and therefore a more important person. However, it is the Islamic belief that Ishmael, son of Hagar, is the preferred son of Abraham and therefore Sarah’s role is mitigated when compared to Hagar. The sole Qur’an entry that references Sarah quite simply recounts her astonished reaction to the news she would conceive a child despite her old age.

Quran, Surah Hud, Ayat 71
And his wife was standing by; she laughed, therefore We gave her the glad tidings of Isaac, and, after Isaac, of Jacob. Surah Hud [71]
Quran, Surah Hud, Ayat 72
She said, ‘Woe is me! Shall I bear, being an old woman, and this my husband is an old man? This assuredly is a strange thing.’ Surah Hud [72]

9-Asiyah, Wife of the Pharaoh

The wife of the Pharaoh, known in some traditions as Asiyah, played a large role in Moses’s life because she became his foster mother; she saved his life when she took him in and raised Moses from infancy in a household of non-believers while God watched over him

Quran, Surah At-Tahrim, Ayat 11
God has struck a similitude for the believers — the wife of Pharaoh, when she said, ‘My Lord, build for me a house in Paradise, in Thy presence, and deliver me from Pharaoh and his work, and do Thou deliver me from the people of the evildoers.’     Surah At-Tahrim [11]

and in Al-Qasas [9]

Quran, Surah Al-Qasas, Ayat 9
Said Pharaoh’s wife, ‘He will be a comfort to me and thee. Slay him not; perchance he will profit us, or we will take him for a son.’ And they were not aware.  Al-Qasas [9]

Asiyah represents the ideal of virtue as one of the four most outstanding women of the world and one of the four “ladies of heaven” that include: Mary, the mother of Jesus; Khadija, Muhammad’s wife; and Fatima, Muhammad’s daughter. She married Pharaoh as a sacrifice to her people, but never consummated it.She died a martyr’s death after the tyrannical Pharaoh killed many of the believers in the palace and she tried to avenge their deaths.

10-The woman who complained to Muhammad

The Qur’an speaks of her in Sura 58 (Al-Mujadila), but not by name. Hadith provides her name, Khawlah bint Tha’labah

Quran, Surah Al-Mujadila, Ayat 1
God has heard the words of her that disputes with thee concerning her husband, and makes complaint unto God. God hears the two of you conversing together; surely God is All-hearing, All-seeing.

11-Aziz’s Wife (Zulaykha) and the Ladies

The story of Yusuf and Zulaykha, wife of Joseph’s master the Aziz, is one of the most extensive depictions of women in the Qur’an. She appears in Surah 12 (Yusef) as part of Joseph’s chronological narrative shortly after he is sold into slavery in Egypt. In this narrative Zulayka attempts to seduce Joseph, at first outright and then by using guile and wit.

Quran, Surah Yusuf, Ayat 30
Certain women that were in the city said, ‘The Governor’s wife has been soliciting her page; he smote her heart with love; we see her in manifest error. (Yusef) 30
Quran, Surah Yusuf, Ayat 31
When she heard their sly whispers, she sent to them, and made ready for them a repast, then she gave to each one of them a knife. ‘Come forth, attend to them,’ she said. And when they saw him, they so admired him that they cut their hands, saying, ‘God save us! This is no mortal; he is no other but a noble angel.’  (Yusef) 31
Quran, Surah Yusuf, Ayat 51
‘What was your business, women,’ he said, ‘when you solicited Joseph?’ ‘God save us!’ they said. ‘We know no evil against him.’ The Governor’s wife said, ‘Now the truth is at last discovered; I solicited him; he is a truthful man. (Yusef) 51

12-Wife of Abu Lahab

The Qur’an mentions the wife of Abu Lahab in Sura 111 Al-Masadd, but not by name. Hadith claims that her name is Umm Jamil bint Harb and the sister of Abu Sufyan. It is said that she interrupted Muhammad and Abu Bakr praying in the Ka’ba and, unaware that the Prophet was present, spoke badly of him and his religion. Therefore, the Qur’an describes how she will be punished, alongside her husband, in Hell for hurting Muhammad.  Surah Al-Lahab [4,5]

Quran, Surah Al-Lahab, Ayat 4
and his wife, the carrier of the firewood,
Quran, Surah Al-Lahab, Ayat 5
upon her neck a rope of palm-fibre.

13-Wives of Muhammad

The wives of Muhammad are known to Muslims as the “Mother of the believers“, or in Arabic, umm’ul mu’mineen’,

ام المؤمنين

coming from a Sura 33:6:

Quran, Surah Al-Ahzab, Ayat 6
The Prophet is nearer to the believers than their selves; his wives are their mothers. Those who are bound by blood are nearer to one another in the Book of God than the believers and the emigrants; nevertheless you should act towards your friends honourably; that stands inscribed in the Book.

also mention in same Surah Al-Ahzab aya 28,29

Quran, Surah Al-Ahzab, Ayat 28
O Prophet, say to thy wives: ‘If you desire the present life and its adornment, come now, I will make you provision, and set you free with kindliness.
Quran, Surah Al-Ahzab, Ayat 29
But if you desire God and His Messenger and the Last Abode, surely God has prepared for those amongst you such as do good a mighty wage.

14-Wife of Imran 

(Hannah)

The wife of Imran (father of Mary), and thus Isa’s grandmother is not named in the Qur’an, but referred to in two passages of the narratives section. In Judeo-Christian tradition she is identified as Hannah. According to the Qur’an, Imran and his wife were old and childless, and she invoked God for a child: — Qur’an, Sura 3 (Al Imran), ayat 35-36

Quran, Surah Al-i'Imran, Ayat 35
When the wife of Imran said, ‘Lord, I have vowed to Thee, in dedication, what is within my womb. Receive Thou this from me; Thou hearest, and knowest.’
Quran, Surah Al-i'Imran, Ayat 36
And when she gave birth to her she said, ‘Lord, I have given birth to her, a female.’ (And God knew very well what she had given birth to; the male is not as the female.) ‘And I have named her Mary, and commend her to Thee with her seed, to protect them from the accursed Satan.’

15-The Queen of Sheba (Bilqis)

The Qur’an speaks of the Queen of Sheba, also known as Bilqis.The Queen of Sheba is a sovereign ruler over her people The story of the Queen of Sheba takes place in Qur’an, surah 27 (Al-Naml): 22-44.

Quran, Surah An-Naml, Ayat 22
But he tarried not long, and said, ‘I have comprehended that which thou hast not comprehended, and I have come from Sheba to thee with a sure tiding.
Quran, Surah An-Naml, Ayat 23
I found a woman ruling over them, and she has been given of everything, and she possesses a mighty throne.
