Woman In The bible, By Shaykh ‘Abdur-Rahmaan Dimashki

Jesus with his mother

[John. 2:4] He said to Mary, “Woman, what have I to do with you.” (I only quote here what I believe not because I believe that Jesus the great prophet of God was more polite and kind to his mother than what the Bible shows.)

Menses in the bible

[Levi. 15:19] When a woman has a discharge of blood which in her regular discharge from her body, she shall be apart seven days. And WHOSOEVER TOUCHES HER SHALL BE UNCLEAN until the evening. And every thing that she lies upon in her SEPARATION shall be unclean. Every thing also that SHE SITS UPON SHALL BE UNCLEAN. And whosoever touches her bed shall wash his clothes and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the evening. And whosoever touches anything THAT SHE SAT UPON SHALL WASH HIS CLOTHES, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the evening.

And if it be on her bed, or any thing whereon she sits when he touches it: he SHALL BE UNCLEAN UNTIL THE EVENING. And if any man lie with her at all, and her flowers be upon him: he shall be unclean seven days, and all the bed WHEREON SHE LIES SHALL BE UNCLEAN.

And if a woman have an issue of her blood many days out of the time of her separation, or if it run beyond the time of her SEPARATION: all the days of the issue of her uncleanness shall be as the days of her SEPARATION, she shall be unclean.

Every bed whereon she lies all the days of her issue shall be unto her as the bed of her SEPARATION, and whatsoever she sits upon shall be unclean, as the uncleanness of her SEPARATION.

There is hijaab of the clothes, hijaab of the way one acts, hijaab of the way one conducts oneself in public, hijaab of ones voice, hijaab of ones character etc. The Hijaab is adopted to minimise the women’s beautiful attraction, hence lessening the chances of her being molested.
