Q: How come there are muslims who wear tudung, and some don't?
A: Firstly, please forgive us. We are all not perfect. The muslims who wear tudung up to their knees and even cover their faces are not perfect. But the women who covers, they do so because they want to, because they believe in the Hereafter and Allah's Promise.
It's the effort. Some people don't want to use too much effort to please; please God.
Sunblock is good for our skin, yet many won't even bother using them. It prevents skin cancer, it's anti-ageing! Still.
For some who doesn't see the effect of it immediately, they wouldn't care.
It's too much effort.
Sunblock is like tudung la.
The SPFs is like the level of coverage. The higher the SPF means high level of coverage.
Other than sunblock, vegetables is also an example. So many people don't eat veges even though they're good for the health.
So, it's due to the effort. Some don't see the effect or the goodness of it immediately, so they procrastinate the effort. They don't see how tudung, or being covered, can benefit them in this lifetime and the next.
Q: Why does the Prophet (SAW) marry so many times?
A: Because he had to. Consider this: we women are married to one guy, and we have so many things about our husband that irks us. If we can list down the things about our husband that we're annoyed with, even hate, our list can reach up to 10 points, or maybe more!
Who is more closer to a man than his wife? Living under the same roof and all.
But the wives of the Prophet (SAW), can't even have a list. They could have shared his imperfections, flaws, complains about him, expose his weaknesses, but they just couldn't. They don't have anything to share! Besides his good character.
He is the perfect example for us ordinary people to look up to.
These aren't the 'answer scheme' for these type of questions. It's just something i thought can be used in case you're in this situation.
The people who asks this kind of questions probably won't understand islamic terms, like "Because Allah SWT orders us to", "to go to heaven", "it's in the Quran", etc.
They need something relatable so that it's easy to understand and imagine.
So yeah. Hope you'll find this useful!
