A Message to the West... (Poem)

By: Umm-e-Shafia

If I cover my face with a veil
For you, why is it such a big deal?
It is my right to cover my face
This piece of cloth enhances my grace
You want to make this world, veil-less
My Rabb orders me to wear proper dress
You want to see everywhere pictures of nudity
My Lord commands me to maintain my purity
Being a Muslim woman, I will guard my chastity
This way of life gives me freedom and tranquility
My Niqab is a sign of protection and nobility
My Niqab is not a hurdle in expressing my ability
Neither your anger will stop me nor your hate
I will always obey my Glorious Rabb, the Great
