THE IMPLICATIONS OF THE BEARD, MUSLIM GARB, AND OTHER OUTWARD SYMBOLS OF ISLAM

According to the scholar Raymond Ibrahim, "Muslims who adhere to non-problematic aspects of Islam indirectly indicate their acceptance of problematic aspects of Islam — such as enmity for infidels, death for apostates, subjugation for women, and so on."

Consider, for instance, the seemingly unobjectionable tradition of Muslim men growing their beards. This custom originated as the result of an edict by the prophet Muhammad, who wanted his pious followers to be clearly, visually distinguishable from infidel Christians and Jews. Ibrahim reasons that Muslims who "meticulously follow the minor, 'outer' things of Islam [such as growing a beard] simply because their prophet made a few utterances concerning them," can be expected to "also follow, or at least accept as legitimate, the major, 'inner' themes Muhammad constantly emphasized ... such as enmity for and deceit of the infidel, and, when capable, perpetual jihad."

The hijab (or headscarf) donned by Muslim women, also on Muhammad’s command, "produces the same symbiosis," says Ibrahim. Tawfik Hamid, a former aspiring jihadist and an acquaintance of al-Qaeda leader Ayman Zawahiri, once observed that “the proliferation of the hijab is strongly correlated with increased terrorism. … Terrorism became much more frequent in such societies as Indonesia, Egypt, Algeria, and the UK after the hijab became prevalent among Muslim women living in those communities.”
