Are there any harmful effects on women if they used to display parts of their body? Let us read………

According to the latest figures, the incidence of melanoma, a potentially fatal skin cancer, is increasing dramatically. It is currently the most common type of cancer in young women between the ages of 25 and 29.

Researchers believe that sun exposure plays a significant role in the development of melanoma. According to Dr. Diane Berson, an American dermatologist says “intense sun exposure prior to age 20 may be more of a significant risk factor for skin cancer than sun exposure past the age of 20. Three or more blistering sunburns early in life, or three or more years of working out of doors, (e.g. camp counselors or lifeguards), without protection, can increase the risk of skin cancer by more than three times.”

Another study held  from 1973 to 2004 found that the rate of new melanoma cases in younger women had jumped 50 percent since 1980, but did not increase for younger men in that period.

“It’s worrying,” said Mark Purdue, a research fellow at the National Cancer Institute, who led the analysis published in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology. “What we are seeing in young adults right now could foretell a much larger number of melanoma cases in older women.” he said.

“One possible explanation is increases among young women of recreational sun exposure or tanning bed use,” Purdue said. “Both of these things have been identified as risk factors.”

Statistics say that 62,000 melanoma cases are diagnosed each year in the United States, and more than 8,400 people die from the disease, according to the American Cancer Society. Previous studies have shown that the rate of new diagnoses has been increasing among adults overall.

Woman’s dress in Islam

According to religion of Islam woman should only display her face and palms of hands in front of foreigner men (indoor and outdoor) and more than that is prohibited.

Allah Almighty tells prophet Mohamed peace be upon him to order women to do the following: (And tell the believing women to lower their gaze (from looking at forbidden things), and protect their private parts (from illegal sexual acts) and not to show off their adornment except only that which is apparent (like both eyes for necessity to see the way, or outer palms of hands or one eye or dress like veil, gloves, head-cover, apron, etc.), and to draw their veils all over Juyûbihinna (i.e. their bodies, faces, necks and bosoms) and not to reveal their adornment except to their husbands, or their fathers, or their husband’s fathers, or their sons, or their husband’s sons, or their brothers or their brother’s sons, or their sister’s sons, or their (Muslim) women (i.e. their sisters in Islâm), or the (female) slaves whom their right hands possess, or old male servants who lack vigour, or small children who have no sense of feminine sex. And let them not stamp their feet so as to reveal what they hide of their adornment. And all of you beg Allâh to forgive you all, O believers, that you may be successful.){ Sûrat An-Nûr – The Light -verse31}.

Muslim women who are veiled believe that their body is valuable so it should not be as a commodity that is exposed to everyone to evaluate.

Conclusion

The great religion of Islam doesn’t approve any practice that may cause any harm to both men and women , therefore Allah Almighty and His prophet Mohamed peace be upon him order women to be veiled because woman’s veil  definitely respects woman than exposing her parts in front of everyone.

Also, Allah Almighty didn’t order women to be veiled and ordered men to do what they want but He Almighty orders men also to respect women by not to look in their parts because that is purer for them so that Allah Almighty tells the prophet to inform men to:

(Tell the believing men to lower their gaze (from looking at forbidden things), and protect their private parts (from illegal sexual acts, etc.). That is purer for them. Verily, Allah is All-Aware of what they do.){ Sûrat An-Nûr – The Light -verse30}.
