Behind The Niqab

I am a woman like any another,

Young and full of desires,

With the urge to live life to its fullest,

I want to be as free as a bird,

Who wishes to fly high in skies,

Swim like that jovial dolphin,

Prancing with the roaring waves,

And discover the colours of life,

I am a woman of few words and glances,

But many endless desires

You think I am imprisoned in black,

You think I cry with inferiority complexes,

But your so wrong O’ wayfarer,

Behind the niqab,

Is a woman who hopes to conquer this world,

With the power of her pen,

Although people ridicule her talent, she holds firm faith in being patient,

The way she uses the pen,

That sharp sword of words awakening your rooh.

So don’t under estimate this black cloak,

It is far powerful than you can ever imagine.

There have been tales of my disgrace,

by those who failed to realise its value,

I have heard the wise Bulbul,

Singing songs of joy and hope,

She’s praising the purdah and its tales.

Several tears reside behind this veil,

yet a ray of light exists,

One day you will see me fly in the skies,

And the black ink of the pen flowing like that of my niqab

writing in the skies, bold words of wisdom,

till then I am patient and praying everyday…

Behind the niqab, is a story of a woman, living behind the veil and writing it...

"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 veils over their bosoms and not display their beauty except to their husbands, 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. And O ye Believers! turn ye all together towards Allah, that ye may attain Bliss. " anNur:31
