But it is an emotional, physiological, and spiritual expression of you
“Ishma’il Abdul Haq”
[SIZE="3"][COLOR="Red"]The Holy Quran 30:30 “So set thou thy face steadily and truly to the Faith: (establish) Allah's handiwork according to the natural pattern (fitrah) on which He has made mankind: no change (let there be) in the work (wrought) by Allah; that is the standard Religion, but most among mankind understand not.”[/COLOR][/SIZE]
Black women seem to be the only women who ... are always required to change the naturalness of who they are (in Afro-Asiatic tongues naturalness is called al-fitrah) because of what other people think of them. Fitrah or the natural pattern has a physical component as well as a spiritual one. The fitrah of the human body is its beauty and perfection as created by God. Although created perfectly by God-Allah, humans are permitted to enhance their appearance through means approved by God, such as clothes, bathing and perfumes. These are changes to surface appearance, but not to one's essential fitrah or the natural pattern.
However, radical changes to one's body to suit personal taste or social fashion are condemned as unlawful changes to fitrah. Perming or relaxing our hair falls into this category because it alters your natural hair, and it is harmful, and reflects a negative self image seeking social approval of non-blacks. Procedures to remove or hide deformities resulting from disease or injury are seen as restoring fitrah, rather than changing it, and are therefore allowed.
