Niqaab: A Seal on the Debate,Paperback - 109 pages,by Sister Kamillah Khan.Description :The author has brought together the collective evidences from the various books of Hadith in discussing the dress code of the Muslimah. The book brings to light the meaning of Khimaar, Jilbaab, Hijaab and Niqaab and describes their various attributes after teasing them out from the ambiguous word 'veil' which have all been translated into the English language.The Book also clarifies the differences in dress code between the Wives of the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, and the Muslim women and explains how incorrect rulings and opinions have been promoted. The author has shown the true position of the Niqaab in Islam and described in rich detail the true obligatory dress code of the Muslimah. As such the author has essentially placed a 'Seal on the Debate' regarding the Niqaab.The truth regarding the Niqaab issue will never be found if we continue to simply quote the opinions of the scholars for they have differed and the truth is one, with the truth found in the narrations. Instead we need to address this issue through the proofs found in the collective narrations and not simply cut and paste one text here and one text there. In fact we have to take from where the scholars took until we review their evidences and compare them with the evidences found in the collective texts in the various books of Ahadith. Thus did Allah instruct us to refer back to Him and His Messenger, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, in all matters of dispute, and the scholars of Islam upheld this noble command, calling mankind back to the Speech of Allah Almighty and the guidance of Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peace. This is what the scholars advocated. They never advocated blind following of their statements, nor were they always correct in each and every ruling, nor were their words completely free from untruths.Consensus amongst the scholars is one thing, and their differing another thing, with their differing requiring a more vigorous review of the narrations.
