Aminah Assilmi (nee Janice Huff, 1945-March 5, 2010) was an American Muslim activist, Emmy-award winning broadcaster, speaker and director of the International Union of Muslim Women. She was named one of the 500 most influential Muslims in the world in 2009.
Literally, Hijab is an Arabic word which means curtain. In the context of Islam, it is used to describe the general rules of dress and modesty for both men and women. In the West, it is often used by Muslims to describe the headscarf that Muslim women wear.
In the land of opportunity, a person is free to choose or not to choose wearing Hijab, practicing homosexuality and drinking, as well as to spout personal opinions about Muslim women and Hijab. That is the starting point of any discussion.
Hijab: An Act of Faith, a documentary by Sound Vision, successfully smashes age-old stereotypes about Muslim women and the Hijab by doing something others often fail to do: let Muslim women speak for themselves.
"O you Children of Adam! We have bestowed on you raiment to cover your shame as well as to be an adornment to you. But the raiment of righteousness, that is the best...." That's how Allah describes the virtues of covering our shame, and how Hijab in Islam is important.
