Why do Muslim women wear the hijab?

Covering up is also in the Catholic faith. No image of Mary, the mother of Jesus, exists without her covering

Interview with Sarah Joseph on Reverts in the UK

A new report says that up to 10,0000 Muslim converts are living in the UK, with white women leading the growing number of people embracing Islam.

The finding comes at a time where polls suggest that more than half the British public believe Islam to be a negative influence, yet people are still choosing to become Muslim.

To find out why, Nina Arif spoke to the CEO and editor of Emel magazine Sarah Joseph, who herself is a convert

Does the hijab prevent women from contributing to society?

Sarah Joseph says that it is not the role of the state to forbid freedom of expression through clothing, and it is time to stop playing politics with women's bodies.

Connection Lost - Part 3

our connection is lost to our ability to connect to the people who we isolate from in the other religion of isolationism. And we forget how our neighbors are forty people in front and forty people to our right and forty people to our left and forty people behind; communities.

Our Connection to the Planet

Then we come to our connection to the planet. Our connection to the people and our connection to the planet, to animals. Everything, they tell me, has to be Halal sister. But what does Halal mean by the way?...

Why is it important to consider faith and culture as distinct identities?

Sarah Joseph, a self-described "Englishwoman, Westerner and Muslim," talks of culture and faith as distinct things that can be enjoyed as separate identities.

Muslims in the West

Sarah Joseph on Countering Muslim Stereotypes

At the end of the day, there are Muslim women who are oppressed. But this is not an exclusively Muslim phenomenon. There are women all over the world living in difficult situations.

Domestic violence for example in the United Kingdom and in the United States is statistically correlated to sports. When England loses a football match, people would get drunk and would beat their wives. That doesnít mean that all football supporters beat their wives...

Sarah Joseph: Why Hijab? (Watch)

The notion of cover, of modesty, is not something new to me.

I was a Catholic. I was taught by nuns from time to time in my Catholic school. The notion of covering is not unusual within religious and sacred traditions. Is there any image of Mary (peace be upon her) when she doesnít have a hair cover?

So for me itís not about men, itís not about sex. Itís purely about establishing a space of contemplation and modesty on a sort of daily basis.

And I think thatís very difficult to get across in a world where these values perhaps are not necessarily spoken about on a regular basis. Remember I came from a model agency where everybody were all slim and beautiful... And I didnít like growing up even as a Christian that people would be judged according to how they looked.

So when I became a Muslim, it was actually a very obvious thing to do is to take on the Hijab...

Sarah Joseph on Faith vs. Culture (Watch)

Iím Muslim, Iím English, and Iím a Westerner

Islam is a faith and a culture is a culture.

Cultures change and evolve, but faith has its permanence; things which are rooted within.

And I think itís very difficult to imagine when you donít express it that you can have that faith expressed within a different culture, particularly a culture you are not necessarily used to seeing as a Muslim culture.

So, Iím an English woman, Iím a Westerner, and Iím a Muslim. They are my identities. And at the end of the day God chose to place me in England and Iím not going to question His divine choices!

And so, Iím very English, I was brought up in a very English way. But that is not to say that they are not incompatible with my faith. So I think Iím getting used to explaining it to individuals: ďYes Iím Muslim, Iím English, and Iím a WesternerĒ. Whereas perhaps for them an English person is a Christian or a westerner is not a Muslim.

And so, it takes time to adjust to that mentality, or to that new paradigm. They usually get very excited by it but it does take again conversation, commitment, time, and energy to sort of say ďOk, I donít have to be Pakistani in order to be a committed Muslim!Ē

Sarah Joseph on Muslim Women, Hijab & Fashion (Watch)

Faith Travels, Cultures Donít!

Diversity and Local Customs

Sarah Joseph: Faith travels, cultures donít! There has to be in Islam as a principle of 'Urf (local custom). I mean we see in the travel of the famous jurist Al-Shafei from Baghdad to Cairo how he changed his fiqh, about 80% of his fiqh, because he took on board local customs.

Iím here in Britain, Iím here in Europe. Iím European; Iím a Westerner, Iím English. That is my culture. And I will put forward a British Islamic identity which is authentically British and authentically Islamic. At the end of the day, God could have chosen to place me anywhere in the entire world; He chose to make me English...

Reflections on the Meaning of Life and Death

Sarah Joseph: Living the Dash (Watch)

One of the things Iím talking about this moth is this little punctuation markÖ the dash.

Imagine a grave stone, imagine your grave stone:

Your date of birth, date of death, and in between a little dash.

That dash is your life.

Now the question is:

How are we going to spend that dash?

Dashing around in a mad race going from work to home to school in a crazy fashion, not really thinking about the profound questions of why are we here?

Whatís the purpose of life?

Where do I go after my death?

Or are you going to stopÖ thinkÖ have a moment of profundity, and reassess the direction that you are going in to really look at that dash.

Because if we donít, we donít stop, we donít look at the meaning and value of the dash, it really is just one crazy dash from birth to death!
