My project discoverd the issues which hover over the head covering worn in public by some Muslim women or hijab(veil) donned my Muslim women to protect their demureness. The steadfast challenged myself to discover the regimes of the Muslim women in his place of birth. The clandestine nature of hijab(veil) is acknowledged. Nevertheless, this young enthusiast valiantly dwells in this secret to enhance his knowledge in the aforementioned faith and honour which have long been close at heart and uphold by my adored mother, cherished sisters, respected neighbours and all the women who have walked into my life. Hijab(veil) is only a symbolic depiction of a religious decree. The actual faith and honour lies in the women themselves which should be discovered to see the beauty in the religious code that governs the wearing of such clothing. Faith and Honour opens the door to a more intimate viewpoint of a Muslim woman’s private life and what she chooses to adhere. The strength of faith in a Muslim woman will ensure the eternal demureness ages and ages hence.


Faith and honour







Mum, as from the start
I have loved you with all my heart
I can’t tell you how much I care
There are so many things I would love to share

There are so many ways I could say I LOVE YOU
And I know you think the same too
I can’t begin to explain how happy I am when I see your face
I’m so glad that I live at your place

I love that sweet smell on your pillow
It would be great to take a walk under the willow
Mum I have so much love for you
But when it comes to other people there’s only a few!!

THAIPUSAM : Thankfulness and Submission

Each year comes the month name Thai (January/February) and Pusam, the holy month for Hindus mark a celebration called Thaipusam.  Temple located in Batu Caves, Selangor will be crowded by humans, gathering Hindus from all over the country. They turn up with thousands of capitulation and expectation. Like a feast, the Hindus will march all nightlong carrying idol as big as Kavadi, to as small as pot filled with milk marching towards and climbing the stairs of the temple. The exhaustion, agony and dedication that they carried on their shoulders indicate their of their soul to Murugan God who have fulfilled their wishes. The more arduous and difficult the ritual are such as rolling over or puncturing metal into the body the higher and closer their soul to Murugan God. This seemingly painful journal looks strange but those who performs the ritual act have no feeling of physical responses to the cruel practice as all are “protected” by the spiritual and mental endurance. It becomes their manifesto towards the purification of the soul.
