Wow!! Now this is something new and fascinating! I woke up to read in my newspaper today about this unique event. It took place in Jakarta this year. In the words of one of the organizers who was banned from her job in TV 3 years ago because she refused to take off her head scarf,” This is Islam’s answer to Miss World”.
The All the contests were to participate wearing head scarves, few of them were sincerely covered from head to toe. As for their beauty they were judged on their thoughts towards Islam,way of life and how well they recited Quran. The winner won a huge sum of money along with tickets to Makkah and India.
Now the part where they were judged before a panel of scholars. I’m not sure if the judges were Males and that they were to do cat walk before male judges. But if the things were not done that badly – minus the catwalk – I guess its a pretty good thing. Rest Allah knows best.
What do you think about Muslimah contest?
I do not own the pictures.
