Unveiling of the Veil, Poetry by Farzana Moon

 Genre: Life

Irreverent pagans
From the coffers of their mighty legacy
Have bestowed upon women
Heathen gifts
Veil and hijab
Gift-wrapped in silken shroud
Of false piety

Marks of status and wealth

Those gifts rejected by Islam
For the ultimate gift of equality
Now paraded as heirloom of Muslim heritage
Religion scarred by lies
The well-preserved pearls of truth rusted
By the glitter-dust of distortions
How should one wear religion
This new millennium
Like any garland of truth
Strewn with love

On the gold-thread of
Wisdom, knowledge, understanding
