Bikini model, Maryam Basir, is a devout Muslim.
I give this woman a ton of credit for keeping her faith and not allowing herself to be judged by other people…like her father, Imam Isa Abdul Basir, for example:
“You can’t just make up your own rules,” he said. “It is un-Islamic for a woman to display her body. That’s not debatable.”
Hmmm…that seems like opinion. I doubt there’s anything about that in the Koran:
The Koran is clear about the need for female modesty. Sura 24:31 admonishes believing women to “lower their gaze and guard their modesty; that they should not display their beauty and ornaments except what (must ordinarily) appear thereof; that they should draw their veils over their bosoms and not display their beauty.”
Oh Boy…luckily our little Muslim Model is not letting the haters get to her. After she received some hate mail from another Muslim woman, Basir, responded, quite eloquently:
“What would you want for me sister, to stop modeling and acting, move back to the small town that I grew up in, get married and have kids, pregnant and barefoot, as long as I am covering my hair and not asking questions? If that’s what you believe to be right, do it for yourself … I am not one of those people (like so many who I have met) who have abandoned my Islam because of people like you who try to make someone feel as if they are not Muslim enough, or Arab enough…”
SNNNNNAAAAAPPPPPPP!!! YOU JUST GOT SERVED BY A BROAD IN A GOLD LAMÉ BIKINI!!!!
Keep rockin it my Muslim Model friend. No one will be more happy than Allah. As long as you’re a virgin, he doesn’t mind a little booty shake every now and then
