PAS interpretation of Aurat

Star Online - Kota Baru pharmacy faces fine over poster of 'uncovered' model (extracts):

Warning: You may get hard ons if you look at the hair (the one on top of her head lah) 

KOTA BARU: Another controversy has emerged after a pharmacy here was fined for displaying a poster showing a female model who was not wearing a head scarf and covering her aurat.

According to one of its employees, who declined to be named, Municipal Council enforcement officers came to the pharmacy at Aeon Mall on Jul 26 and issued a summons to the management for displaying the poster.

"I was told the manager has to pay RM150 for the offence," said the employee, adding that the poster was only put up recently.

Last year we were informed by Sisters-in-Islam (SIS) that the Quran does not specifically mention hair as part of a woman’s 'aurat'.

The 'aurat' ruling had apparently come from a hadith narrated by Asma Abu Bakar.

SIS said: “However, this hadith has been greatly contested by Islamic scholars, such as Thariq Iwadullah and Sheikh Nasiruddin Al-Abani, on the grounds of its authenticity in the chain of message as the ‘rawi’ (transmitter of hadith) was renowned for being dishonest.”

“SIS is of the opinion that hair is not part of a woman’s ‘aurat’. In fact, the Quran has never mentioned hair as being specifically a woman’s ‘aurat’."

“When reading Surah an-Nur (24:31) on covering one’s modesty, it is important to understand the context of when the verse was introduced.”

SIS said that the verse which states that women should “draw their khimar (head covering) over their bosoms” was made in reference to the culture of 7th century Arabia, in which women traditionally already wore the khimar.

“The message of this verse is to advocate modesty by calling on women to cover their bosoms with the khimar, as bosoms traditionally did not constitute body parts which was (sic) already visible.

“If hair was also considered a woman’s private part, the Quran would have clearly specified it in 24:31 when women were instructed to cover their bosoms.”

And apart from the above, those supposedly yang alims in KB shouldn't be so uptight about women's hair as to sprout their syiok-sendiri interpretations.

The real stuff is what was advocated by Jalal al-Din al-Suyuti (1445-1505 AD), an Egyptian writer, religious scholar, juristic expert and teacher whose works deal with a wide variety of subjects in Islamic theology, and who informed Muslims about how he saw Paradise (Jannah):

Each time we sleep with a Houri we find her virgin. Besides, the penis of the Elected never softens. The erection is eternal; the sensation that you feel each time you make love is utterly delicious and out of this world and were you to experience it in this world you would faint. Each chosen one will marry seventy [sic] houris, besides the women he married on earth, and all will have appetizing vaginas.

Now those appetizing vaginas will need to have their 'aurat' covered up.
