On The Naqab Debate

“Neither The Burqa Nor The Niqab Are A Religious Requirement”

“There is no requirement in the Qur’an for Muslim women to cover their faces. Invoking religious freedom to conceal one’s identity and promote a political ideology is disingenuous.” ~ Muslim Canadian Congress, 2009

No less an authority than Egypt’s late Sheikh Mohamed Tantawi, Dean of al-Azhar University, stated the niqab was merely a cultural tradition and that it had no connection to Islam or the Qur’an.
