They Chant "Freedom", Yet Impose Upon Us Their Opinions

We're women in disguise,
yet our talent is in full guise.
We're not judged by our appearance,
rather scrutinised for our beauty's disappearance.
Where is this so-called liberation?
All we experience is anti-emancipation!
They chant "freedom", yet impose upon us their own opinions.

Concerned with revealing our beauty,
they listen not to our Lord's call of duty!   
Fearing for our "mental well-being",
it is man that needs to start acting like a real human being.
Favoring women because of their appealing appearance,
yet disregarding others because of their lack of coherence.
They chant "freedom", yet impose upon us their own opinions.

Teaching the young to avoid peer pressure,
the adults of the world continue to mark beauty as the measure.
Pirates are smart enough to hide their treasure,
 yet men dumb enough to expose women for pleasure.
Are women not treasures?
Not if considered from un-Islamic measures!
They chant "freedom", yet impose upon us their own opinions.

Islam is slandered for keeping its treasures out of harm,
others appreciated for parading women around like animals on a farm
Allah taught us that women are best thought of as blessed,
Ya Allah! Society made it as though women are at their best when undressed.
They think we are mad for putting on a cover,
but we'll tell you what's bad: baring all before random others!  
They chant "freedom", yet impose upon us their own opinions.

They call us ninjas and run a mock,
 the advantage is, dare look at us, and we'll put you in a headlock!
All dressed in black, they call us bats,
but that's ok, at least you can't see our fat!
We cop critique for being mystique,
Oh good Lord, don't they know every woman is unique?!
They chant "freedom" yet impose upon us their own opinions.

O women of the world, can you not see?  
Women are being symbolised and itemised.
Unless you appear beautified, consider yourself nullified.
They call it "equality",
but let's face reality.
Unless they like your hips,
they won't listen to a thing coming out of your lips.
They chant "freedom" yet impose upon us their own opinions.

Women are being abused,
not realising they are being used.
Then again, in this day and era, there is no modesty,
And with entire honesty,
women are being blinded,
so that they don't take our examples while being open-minded.
They chant "freedom" yet impose upon us their own opinions.

Only deserving of respect,
when appearing as perfect.
Women crave to be valued,
 even if it truly means to be devalued,
scorned at for putting on our armor,
at least we are not used under man's power.
They chant "freedom" yet impose upon us their own opinions.

Encouraged to remove our veils,
they swear they only sympathise,
 but we have courage to live our lives,
for in their faith Hijab is also emphasised.
But why are we so shocked by such lack of morals,
 It's not as though they follow the Qur'an,
which treats women as delicate as floral.
They chant "freedom" yet impose upon us their own opinions.

We cover up at the request of our Lord, a method of preservation,
we submit not to man's desperation.
If intelligent people can agree to a woman's exploitation,
 then why display grief when it is what leads to the molestation?
Slaves of creating lust,
we can't believe you expose your busts!
Nudity is revolting,     
but in your opinion, modesty is truly faulting.
They chant "freedom" yet impose upon us their own opinions.

We all seek attention, because we're ladies,
but let me mention, the way not to do it,
is a bikini pose next to a Mercedes.
It doesn't take a holy saint to realize,
that an unwrapped lolly will only attract those nasty flies.
We thank Allah for guiding us.
May he always protect us from those guys after us.
They chant "freedom" yet impose upon us their own opinions.

The beauty of being Muhajjib,
is entailed in the fact that it's Wajib.
A mandatory protection which is so Divine,
there is no exception when it comes to women who are so fine.
All glory be to Allah,
He's given us true freedom.
May we continue with our da'wah,
and not be influenced by their fake claims of liberation.
They chant "freedom" yet impose upon us their own opinions.
With Allah lies our complete submission.
and all that matters is winning His opinion.
