Ramadan bazaars happen only once a year, just as Ramadhan does. It’s a place where small businesses can get the attention of many to help them make a living and for everyone to get food to break their fast and enjoy.
But, for one Malaysian, his attention seems to be elsewhere if he were to go to a Ramadhan bazaar.
In an anonymous sharing through Kosmo, the man, simply named ‘Geng Tarawih from Kuala Selangor’, explained that he feels challenged when he sees women at bazaars dressed ‘inappropriately’. In his words, this means that the women are either not wearing a tudung, wearing a skirt, tight pants or a shirt tight enough to ‘reveal their chest’.
He wrote, “In Ramadan bazaars, for example, there are still Muslim women who dress immodestly and tempt the eyes of the people of Adam (men). Not wearing a tudung, wearing skirts, tight pants and shirts that reveal the chest and more. Certainly, if men do not control their views, their fasting will be affected.”
Caused him to avoid Ramadan bazaars
“I myself, as a person of Adam, do not stop at Ramadan bazaars because I am worried about the challenge that demands self-control. Besides to not liking the crowded atmosphere, the addition of going to a Ramadan bazaar causes me to be easily distracted,” he explained.
“This post is to remind readers who are Muslim to keep their eyes in check when stopping by Ramadan bazaars. To women, I suggest you dress with a real Muslim image instead of promoting a Western lifestyle,” he added.
Honestly, if we were to go to a Ramadan bazaar, nothing except the food will be on our mind. What do you think about this? Do feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section.
