ADNAN OKTAR: Addressing his daughter Fatima (ra), our Prophet (saas) decreed; "O Fatima, whoever (woman) adorns herself out and goes out wearing fine clothes and attracts people's attention, making them look at her, that woman is cursed by the angels of seven heavens and seven earths." This is a fabricated hadith. Why would such a thing happen? Men dress up, our Prophet (saas) would dress up too; he would part his hair in the middle by applying oil, giving his hair a gleaming appearance. Then he braided them on both sides and tinged his eyes with kohl. Why? So that people would find our Prophet (saas) pleasing and attractive. Women too would take great care of their looks and hygiene. If there is a danger of disorder, if the woman's chastity and life is at risk, then she should wear burqa. She can still wear adornments etc. but she should completely cover her body with a burqa including her face. But if there is no such risk present, why should she wear fine dresses and adornments and look beautiful? The women of that era all wore ornaments and looked beautiful. In fact, Almighty God says in the verse to our Prophet (saas): "After that no other women are lawful for you nor may you exchange them for other wives, even though their beauty might be pleasing to you." God continues, "with the exception of any you own as slaves." But God says to the Prophet (saas), "Even though their beauty might be pleasing to you." The Prophet (saas) sees a woman and finds her beautiful and attractive. I am conveying what is in the verse. "After that no other women are lawful for you nor may you exchange them for other wives, even though their beauty might be pleasing to you," says God. He tells the Prophet (saas) to not pay bride wealth for them. Because they put financial pressure on the Prophet (saas). "With the exception of any you own as slaves," in other words Almighty God says, "You can marry those who willingly give themselves away as slaves as they are lawful for you." So why do you deny this verse? The Prophet (saas) sees women, finds them attractive and marries them. Can they deny the verse? They cannot. For example, our Prophet (saas) says that women should keep their hands well-groomed and use nail polish. The woman holds out her hand, and the Prophet (saas) asks, "Is this a man's hand or a woman's?". "It is a woman's hand," says those around him. Our Prophet (saas) asks that question intentionally. "If it was so, she would have adorned her nails with henna." So if women's hands were to remain covered, why would our Prophet (saas) have said so? He says, "She should apply henna on her nails so that they look beautiful and reflect the fact that they belong to a woman." And what do they claim? They claim, "Doing so is forbidden."
