DID YOU KNOW THAT…

2300 years ago, long before Islam, Arabs discovered that forcing people to cover their nose and mouths, broke their will and individuality, and depersonalized them. It made them submissive. That’s why they imposed on every woman the mandatory use of a fabric over her face.

Then Islam turned it into the woman’s symbol of submission to Alah, the man owner of the Harem, and the King.

Modern psychology explains it: without face we don’t exist as independent beings. The child looks in the mirror between the ages of two and three and is discovered as an independent being. The mask is the beginning of deleting individuality.

He who does not know his history is condemned to repeat it…
