Questioner: There are girls who go to schools without covering their heads because they are not allowed to wear the Islaamic Hijaab. What should be done regarding this?
Dr Sharof: They should go to schools where the Islaamic Hijaab is allowed. It is not compulsory to go to such schools since the government does not allow them to wear the Hijaab. They should go to private schools owned by the Muslims, in as much as they are capable of paying the fees. We can’t neglect our religion because of western education. They (the government owned schools) are upon the culture of the whites. They allow students to attend schools nakedly because they have no shame. Islaam does not allow us to become shameless because we want to learn western education. Na’am.
