I am Still Not Convinced to Wear the Hijab

Some Muslim women, they don't wear Hijab. You ask them, Why don't you wear Hijab? Allah says it is wajib in the the Qur'an. Some I have heard, they say I am still not convinced of the wisdom behind Hijab. I don't see how Hijab makes me a better person. I don't see why the Hijab is useful. I'm still not convinced.

Brothers and sisters, it should be enough to convince me that if my Lord Allah said do it, this should be enough to convince me, because I am the slave and He is the master. And the slave doesn't have the right to what? To negotiate and to object and to say I have to wait until I am what, convinced?

If a sergeant in the army tells the soldiers, do something, what do they do? Why do they do it? They don't ask, they submit. They're not going to say why. What's the reason behind this?

We have to submit to Allah Subhana wa Ta'ala, the mere fact that Allah said do it. I trust Allah Subhana wa Ta'ala. Allah said there is wisdom behind that. I don't have to be convinced. There is wisdom, we will speak about that. But let's say I wasn't convinced. Let's say in my lecture the day after tomorrow, I bring you ten reasons of why a Hijab is beneficial, but you are not convinced. Any of these reasons.

Does that mean you leave Hijab? No! Because at the end of the day, Allah is the one that said: wear it, and we have to trust Allah. Allah is wise, and you only tell us to do things that we benefit from. So this should be enough. And I cannot say that I'm not convinced. I am not convinced means I reject Allah's knowledge. I reject Allah's wisdom.

That's why the Holy Qur'an says about this. Allah says in the Holy Qur'an: 'Wa ma kana limu'minin wala mu'minatin, idha qadha Allahu wa Rasuluhu 'amran, an yakoona lahumu al-khiyaratu min amrihim' (33:36). If Allah Subhana wa Ta'ala or Rasul Allah says something is wajib, that's it. It is not a matter of choice, it is not a matter of when I am convinced. It is a matter of doing it right away, because Allah is giving an order. He is not asking me nicely, please do it. he is telling me, no, you have to do it. And if I am a true Muslim, I submit to Allah Subhana wa Ta'ala.
